:: Why no sounds??::

Let's watch a video from this my member's blog:

Your speaker having problems?
No.. No.. It was our video..
It had no sound for actor and actress..
It was a miming role play from our group..

For this task, our group need to produce a mime's video. At first, we had problems to find ideas for our video. It was hard to make a video without script where we need to focus on our expression to express our feeling. As I am not a good actress, I'm trying my best to make sure our video is the best~

The main idea came up in the middle of the night and the next day, we went to the playground near to our house. We started to shoot for our video. The setting was at the playground where two naughty kids felt boring and they saw an innocent boy was playing at the swing near them. They bullied the innocent boy to have fun. Suddenly the boy felt from the swing and injured himself. The naughty kids felt guilty and asked for apologize. In the end, they became good friend.

After finished shooting, we agreed to ask Muslim to edit the video. He is an expert in editing and making an interesting video.

I really enjoyed the whole process while shooting and editing the video. From this experience, I realizes that co-operation among group member is important and the key to succeed in life. I hope the co-operation and friendship among us will last forever.

::what happened to my tongue?!::

dare to try?? (^.*)v
I saw Susie sitting in a shoe shine shop.
Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits.

How many boards could the Mongols hoard if the Mongol hordes got bored?
How is it?? Did you twisted your lovely tongue?? (^o^) hehe..
Do you know what kind of sentences are above?? I'm sure most of us had heard bout Tongue Twister which will twisted our beloved tongue. (^v^)b
It happened to us during our presentation on the topic Tongue Twister where we need to present two sentences of tongue twister and teach the class on how to pronounce them correctly. We got 8 out of 10 as our marks because we had problem in pronouncing the word HOARD, and HORDES. Luckily, our lecturer, Madam Ira helped us in correcting our pronunciation.
To be a good English teacher, one of the aspects they need to focus is their pronunciation. They need to practice more, so that they are excellent in their pronunciation. This helps them in teaching pupils for speaking skill.
Here are some information on Tongue-twister. I took it from this website: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tongue-twister *feel free to browse for more. :) *
A tongue-twister is a phrase that is designed to be difficult to articulate properly, and can be used as a type of spoken (or sung) word game. Some tongue-twisters produce results which are humorous (or humorously vulgar) when they are mispronounced, while others simply rely on the confusion and mistakes of the speaker for their amusement value.

Tongue-twisters may rely on rapid alternation between similar but distinct phonemes (e.g., s [s] and sh [ʃ]), unfamiliar constructs in loanwords, or other features of a spoken language in order to be difficult to articulate. For example, the following sentence was claimed as "the most difficult of common English-language tongue-twisters" by William Poundstone.

The seething sea ceaseth and thus the seething sea sufficeth us.

This type of tongue-twister was incorporated into a popular song in 1908, with words by British songwriter Terry Sullivan and music by Harry Gifford. It was said to be inspired by the life and work of Mary Anning.

She sells sea-shells on the sea-shore.
The shells she sells are sea-shells, I'm sure.
For if she sells sea-shells on the sea-shore
Then I'm sure she sells sea-shore shells.

A slight variant replaces "on" with "by".

Many tongue-twisters use a combination of alliteration and rhyme. They have two or more sequences of sounds that require repositioning the tongue between syllables, then the same sounds are repeated in a different sequence. An example of this is the song Betty Botter.

Betty Botter bought a bit of butter.
The butter Betty Botter bought was a bit bitter
And made her batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter makes better batter.
So Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter
Making Betty Botter's bitter batter better

The following twister won the "grand prize" in a contest in Games Magazine in 1979:

Shep Schwab shopped at Scott's Schnapps shop;
One shot of Scott's Schnapps stopped Schwab's watch.

Some tongue-twisters take the form of words or short phrases which become tongue-twisters when repeated rapidly (the game is often expressed in the form "Say this phrase three (or five, or ten, etc.) times as fast as you can!"). Some examples include:

A Proper Copper Coffee Pot.
Betty bopper's battering batton made bertie bopper bite her.
Cecily thought Sicily less thistly than Thessaly.
Irish wristwatch.
Peggy Babcock.
Pleasant mother pheasant plucker.
Red Leather, Yellow Leather.
Red Lorry, Yellow Lorry.
Rubber Baby Buggy Bumper.
Smiley shlug with Shloer.
Unique New York.

Another example

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked,
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
How many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick?

Swan swam over the sea,
Swim Swan swim,
Swan swam back again,
Well swam Swan.

:: Dialogue? ::

heyya, peeps! (=.=)b

Last week, my group mates, Hubert, Ahmad Muslim and Hishafinaz acted a role play in front of the class. The main idea of the role play was Inaz was having a housewarming party for her new house. She met with Hubert and invited him to come to her new house with Muslim and Nisa. There were some incident during the party and 3 of them were surprised to meet Inaz's fiance.

We acted the dialogue spontaneously because of the limit of time to practice. But, i felt happy and proud with my group's members even though we did not managed to win the most outstanding role-play. The co-operation among us is the most important thing because without it, we will not manage to complete any task which need group works.

So, below this are the dialogue for our role-play. Let's enjoy reading it! (^.^)v


Housewarming Party
Scene 1: Invitation on the phone
Scene 2: Arrival at the house
Scene 3: Meal Time

Scene 1: Invitation on the phone
Hello Hubert, it’s Inaz speaking.
Oh, Hi Inaz!
Yeah, it’s been awhile. How’ve you been? (to enquire)
Not too bad, thanks. And you?
I’m fine thanks. I’m calling because I wanted to tell you that I have moved to a new house just last month and I’m planning a housewarming party this Saturday evening. (to inform)
Oh that’s great! Where is your house? (to enquire)
Well, my house is in the Ocean Park residential area. I will text you the address and the information about the party. (to inform)
I see. I would love to come and celebrate you moving into your new house. Thanks for the invite! (to express gratitude)
It’s no big deal. Also, can you invite Muslim and Nisa also as I don’t have their phone numbers. I would like them to come seeing that we were quite a fun group during our time in the IPG. (to reminisce)
Sure thing. Those were good times indeed. I’ll let them know as soon as you’ve texted me your address.
Thanks Hubert. Anyways[u1] , I’ve got to go. It was nice talking to you. See you at the party then! Bye.
No problem. I’ll see you at the party! Bye.

Scene 2: Arrival at the house.
Walaikumusalam. (please edit) [u2] Hi Muslim, please come in.
Hello Inaz! (To greet)
Oh hello! You’re here with Mus I see. Is Nisa with you?
Hello Inaz. Yes I came with them as I didn’t know the way here. Thank goodness they wanted to pick me up.
It’s not a problem Nisa, what are friends for right? (to reflect)
Yeah. Wow, it smells really good in here, and your house looks superb! (to give praise/ admire)
Thanks Hubert. I did some renovations and tinkered with the interior design. I had my fiancé help me with the furniture choice. (to inform)
Talking about fiancé, where is the lucky guy? (to inquire)
Erm, he’s with his sister in the kitchen helping out with the cooking.
That’s interesting. You’ve got a man that cooks.
It’s all in God’s hands. I am blessed to have him. Here he comes now. (to show gratitude)
Well hello there.
Hubert, Muslim and Nisa:
What?! (to express wonder)

Scene 3: Meal Time
I can’t believe that _________ is engaged to you. We have never expected that!
I never expected it too. I suppose that’s what jodoh is all about.
I’m happy for you Inaz. I also agree with Hubert that your house looks splendid.
Yeah, I admire you Inaz. You’ve done well. (to compliment)
I agree. And the food your fiancé cooked tastes really good! (to compliment)
(Laughs) You never change, Hubert.
