INTERVIEW SESSION WITH PRA SEKOLAH USAHA EHSAN
(21/02/13)


1) What is your name?  
    My name is Pn. Asniha Binti Shafiee.

2) For how many years have you been working in a pre-school setting?
    Actually, i was majored in Pre-School course in 1991 until 1993. i was a Pre-School
    teacher's in hear since it's opened and now i have been here for 9 years. Before this,
    i have teach standard one for 11 years old. 

3) Can you tell us something about experiences in working in a pre-school setting?
    I found it hard for children to learn English. The subject like Mathematics and Sciences 
    were taught in English before but know in Malay. It's was quiet difficult actually for
    them to understand and memorize the words. We are following National Pre-School
    Curriculum (NPC) and the superiors asked us to teach in both language Malay and 
    English equally. But since the children can not understand the English word so we need
    to emphasized a single word for a year. I use phonic and keep repeat until the child 
    understand.   

4) What are the teaching methods that you used to teach Pre-School English?
    Actually, i don't know how to answer this question. Most the time we are using Malay
    language. The only English word what i use to said is "class". I can't communicate with
    children using English because they are not fluent with the language. They are
    memorized the word but not understand the meaning of word.

5) So far, how successful the teaching methods that you used to teach pre-school
    English?
    In order to teach Pre-School English, i don't really think that we are success since
    children cannot understand the English words and still depend on the Malay words.
    But for the basic words like A for "APPLE" it's easy for them to memorized.

6) What is the importance of teaching English for pre-school?
    For now, i only focus on giving a commendation in English, like "STAND UP" and "WASH
    YOUR HAND" . 

7) What are the good examples to teach children at home?
    It's important for parents to monitor their children at home. It might be a problem
    when parents doesn't cheek their children's homework. Most of them just asking the
    child either there is a homework or not and believe what children say.

8) From your opinion, what are the barriers for you when you teach pre-school English
    and how do you undertake the situation?
    Children's language in English is very shallow. For example , we are ask something in
    English, there will be o responds from children. As a result, i need to repeat the same
    question in Malay.

9) Do  you know about other teaching method that are available in order to teach
    pre-school English? 
    I only focus on repetition of the words. We can also use an English story book but
    need to translate it in Malay and repeat the words in The book. The focus should 
    be only on the words. Besides that, there are many program in television to learn
    improve English.

10) What are the specific commitments for parents and teachers, do you thing  would
      be the most appropriate to encourage the child to learn language? 
      I think, we can provide them with activities such as singing and games like music box.

COMPARISON BETWEEN THE TEACHING METHOD THAT THEY USED TO TEACH PRE-SCHOOL ENGLISH

          After done with the interview we found out that both pre-school have a similarity and differences in teach pre-school English. both of them are using the same teaching method which is National Pre-School Curriculum (NPC).

          From the interview, we also came out with some differences between both pre-school. For the first interview which is Taman Selasih Pre-School, the students are able to read and count number in English. The teachers always use a simple instruction and stimulation in English for each activities in order to make children familiar with English language. It is totally different with another pre-school which is Usaha Ehsan pre-school. Their students can't read and understand English words. It takes such a long time for them to understand and memorize the words. As a result, the teachers use Malay language rather than English language to give instruction towards children.


CHOOSING THE BEST TEACHING METHOD

          After having a discussion with our group members, finally we decided to choose the teaching method from Taman Selasih Pre-school. This pre-school is using National Pre-School Curriculum (NPC). The first reason why we are choosing this teaching method is related with their excellent in developing children to be familiar with English language. As result, their students are able to read and count numbers in English very well. another reason why we choose this teaching method have to do with the teachers who are very commited in order to help children with English lesson. They always encouraged children to talk in English.
