As we got on the bus we head to British Hills Fukushima. On the road we stopped for breakfast.
And right after the meal, we moved on to our next stop where we learned to make Daruma Dolls along with the Japanese teachers.
They taught us the step by step way of painting the Daruma Doll.
Not only that, they even emphasized the importance of drying off the Daruma.
After drying, the drawing of the 👁🗨 comes next but they said before drawing the eye the painter must make a wish, then begin drawing the left eye of the Daruma.
And if your wish will come true then you get to paint the right 👁🗨 of the Daruma. It was indeed an incredible experience for all of us.
Upon arrival at Haneda Airport we queued in for immigration, there was a long line but not much of waiting time.
Then the 🛃 custom declaration lane., where we have to fill up some forms and such.
And finally upon arriving at the exit we meet our amiable British Hills contact teachers, Mr. Wataru and Teacher John.
We took pictures for welcome memory and head on to the bus to go to British Hills Fukushima.
Suvarnabhumi Airport : At the meeting point where everyone was early. Family and friends altogether waiting for the travelers to check in.
After checked in, a short briefing was given to students about taking care of boarding pass, passport control and other necessary reminders.
Taking advantage of the pause while waiting for the boarding time.
Our flight to Hong Kong CX654. And upon arrival we took some rest stroll inside Hong Kong International Airport. Not only that, some students went on shopping with sone goodies.
Well, so much after the stroll we hit on taking the HK Airport Shuttle Bus that will take us to our Boarding gate.
And up up and away going to 🇯🇵.
March 11, 2018 – NMK School administered the screening process for aspiring M 4 (Grade 10) students of Smart English Program or S.E.P.
The process included a written test which was conducted in the morning and followed by an entrance interview with the current Foreign Teachers. See the steps of the process below:
Initially, the applicants were grouped in two i.e. applicants coming from NMK Mini-English Program and applicants coming from non-MEP.
For NMK-MEP applicants, interview includes: Part 1 -Picture Description – these pictures depicts social issues that needs to be unlock. It is then the task of the applicants to identify what issues are being shown and offer a solution.
The second part of the test, a speaking cue card were given to the applicants. On the cue cards were series of sequenced questions and must be answered coherently.
Meanwhile, the other group of applicants have a different sequence of the test. In the Non-MEP group, they are asked to describe a certain picture using as many sentences as they can. Also, they are asked to read short passages from M4 textbook which is the New World.
