For prospective international students who are keen on pursuing their education in Malaysia, this article is for you to glean some useful information on immigration matters. Government agencies responsible in handling immigration matters for foreign students are the Malaysian Immigration Department and the various Malaysian diplomatic mission overseas, which are the high commission consulates or embassies around the world.   Immigration Procedures To enter Malaysia as a student, you need to obtain student visa and these are the steps to apply for a student visa or student pass.   Step 1: Applying For Visa And Student

In this post, we take a closer look at life in Malaysia for expats and international students, giving you a better idea of what you can expect and providing you with local perspectives and highlights.   Good Pace Of Life Compared to many countries, Malaysia generally has a slower pace of life with people striving for a more balanced lifestyle between work and play. In a good way, you will also see that people tend to take things easy and enjoy a more varied lifestyle on their off-work/school time. One of the activities Malaysians like to frequent are retail outlets.

As with all decisions we make in life, there are two sides of a coin, hence requiring us to look at all sides before settling on an informed decision. When it comes to making a decision on whether or not to send your child to an international school in Malaysia, do consider the pros and cons, from the macro and micro views. Here are some pros and cons to going to international school in Malaysia.   Curriculum The curriculum used by international schools differ from those adopted by public schools.

How To Engage Shy Students In Online Learning

This is surely one of the greatest challenges for teachers internationally at the moment. When we first went online, teachers everywhere joked about what a wonderful device the mute button would be in Google Meet. The sad reality is that children generally seem intimidated by the online environment and feel shy to speak out. So, what do we do at Repton to ensure that our students are still participating and verbalising their thinking?

Firstly, fun activities. It's amazing how an exciting game can encourage children to speak (or shout!) out.
Secondly, direct questioning- this is not to put children on the spot, but to give them a chance to answer when the teacher knows that they are confident to do so.

Round robins are another method- everyone in the class has to give an answer. Less confident children can share someone else's idea, but usually they rise to the occasion and want to say something new.Small group meets also give the children the opportunity to speak more. We split into smaller groups at least once a week, where the children can work collaboratively on a JamBoard to share their ideas. Many of the children also like to complete independent tasks in small groups where they can discuss ideas with their friends.

I'm sure I speak for many teachers when I say we are looking forwards to returning to noisy face-to-face classrooms, but in the meantime I am incredibly proud of the level of interaction my class are maintaining online. Stay unmuted, 6B, let your voices be heard!
