Language skills Language skill is one of the milestone achievements of the first two years of life. Children are born with innate schema of communication, such as body language or facial expression to communicate with parents or caregiver. The acquisition of language starts from phonology, which is an important skill for a child to master where he or she is to absorb the sound and identify the sounds form one language to another.

Writing 3 Expository Text WORD WALL The word wall is built upon the spiral theory of mastery-repetition, reinforces previously learned content, regular use throughout the school years allows you to recycle many words. As McCarrier, Pinnell & Fontas (2000) argue that “a word wall is a systematically organized collection of words displayed in large letters on a wall or other large display place in the classroom. It is a tool to use, not just display”. Word walls are designed to promote group learning and be shared by a classroom of children. This essay will describe about one of the strategies in English Language Teaching.
Countries in Southeast Asia witnessed the many changing scenes over the years:, new shopping districts, new residential types, new town plazas, demolished landmarks, but also vestiges of traditional vernacular architecture, some that are time-frozen, others precariously perched between modernity and traditions. Two case studies, the Former Asia Insurance Building and Balairung Hotel were chosen to discuss and compares the different levels of consideration and strategies implemented in each building to establish the essence of identity in its region via the notion of adaptation. 2. Essence of Identity Each architecture has a perceptible “essence,” the understanding of this essence is essential both to the discourse and the practice of architecture. The “essence” of architecture can be understood as an active process between human and the urban context.
Without any doubt, the colonial masters in the past apparently imposed their influence on the architectural development of the nation. In addition, Malaysia is a multiracial nation with a population mostly made up of Malays, Chinese, Indians and other smaller communities. Therefore, its architectural development is largely influenced by different cultures. The migration of Chinese and Indians in colonial times was influenced by the determination to seek economic status and political role. Culture, customs and traditions of these immigrants have an impact on local architecture of the developing nation.

Academic achievement is considered by scholars as one of the main goals for the school-age children (García Coll & Szalacha, 2004). According to modern theories, child development and his progress in school is related to some personal factors such as gender, socio-economic background of the family, the interaction of the child with the family environment, and family cooperation with the school (Bronfenbrenner, 1998, Cicchetti & Toth, 2000, Eitle 2005, Jacobs & Harvey, 2005). One of the most comprehensive theoretical framework for understanding the development of the child and their academic achievements is the theory of Epstein (1997, 2005, 2011) known differently as the model of overlapping spheres. This model is focused on the roles that
It is pertinent to engage them for a joint venture as it adheres to the standards and business conduct behaviour of Hongkong Land.

To begin with, Romero and Pajaro (2016) carry out a study to promote English language learning at a public school in Monteria; to do so, they design a curriculum that encourages students to use the language not only into the classroom but also out of it. After the implementation of the curriculum, they find that students’ learning process has become more effective due to the fact that they start to consider using the target language as a need in different contexts and situations and not just for academic purposes. The results derived from this project account for the need to design lessons that require learners to use language in real-life scenarios that allow them to practice what has been learned in the
