Principal/Tutor - Jalal Johar

I am an Engineer and am also an English Teacher. I had studied for 5 years for my Bachelor's degree at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia, and have had lived in Australia for 15 years. I have been teaching English to adults, youths, teenagers, teachers, graduates, Master and Phd students, Engineers, Technicians, IT officers, Research officers, officers from MPOB, KWSP, Ministry of Education and the Rural and Federal Territories, and from the Hotels and Tourism industries etc.  for the last 10 years. I love teaching English to them in Malaysia because English is becoming, or already is, a global communication language. I want to give them the opportunity to learn the language so that they can achieve  a brighter and better future.

Methodology (Kaedah)

We use the Engage-Study-Activate (ESA) method to teach our students English. This methodology is used by TEFL, TESOL, ESL and other international institutions like these to teach to students whose English is a second language.

1. ENGAGE - more fun > more learning
This is the point in a teaching sequence where teachers arouse the students' interest, thus involving their emotions, more fun, better learning.When students are amused, stimulated, challenged, they will not only have more 'fun', but also learn better.

Material: music, discussion, stories, anecdote
2. STUDY language work
Study activities are those where the students are asked to focus in on language (or
information) and how it is constructed. The construction of language is the main focus, but
the topics can be words, sounds or verbs tenses.

3. ACTIVATE - use freely and communicatively

This element describes exercises and activities which are designed to get the students
using language as freely and communicatively as they can
  • try out real language
  • role plays
  • advertisement design
  • debates, discussion
  • story writing
