Students learned about how to study English Language effectively, factors to consider in choosing university majors, and ways to preserve the environment.
Activities consisted of short role plays, presentations, experience-sharing sessions, team-building, and group discussions. Students were asked to designed mini-projects on environmental theme, which they will implement together at their community with the assistance from the alumni. Results of this mini-project will be presented in future workshops with all the group of the English Access Microscholarship students from other provinces.
The U.S. Embassy Representatives welcomed the participants, introduced U.S. Department of State funded exchange programs and encourage students to continue their project. Representatives from the school and the partner organizations also attended the workshop.
