Dear MLC Students,
We are going to practice expressing joy at someone’s success. Sentence of the Day for Wednesday 28/9/2016 is:
Expressing joy at someone’s success
A: Did you hear the good news?
B: No, I haven’t.
A: I got a promotion at my job/an A+ in my chemistry class.
B: Did you really?
A: Seriously, I am so excited.
B: Well, congratulations.
A: Thank you.
B: I’m so happy for you.
B: Yes. You really deserved this.
A: You think so?
B: Yes. Good for you.
Practice and use these sentences as often as you can until you are able to speak them automatically. The secret is still that you have to open your mouth and speak the language. To develop your cross culture communication abilities, mastering multiple languages is crucial. Actively participating in the language table will help you learn and practice more languages. So join the language table and practice the designated language (now is English) everyday.
Also remember to keep your cool manner: Greet people with smile and say when you meet at the meal table, or in MLC at any floor and anywhere:
Hello! How are you today! How are you doing today!
Good morning! Good evening! Good afternoon! Good night! Have a good day!
Have a good day!
P.S. Do you know what table manner is? Have you attended any formal dinner before? Do you know what they MLC’s Etiquette Code of Conduct is? If the answer is No to all the three questions, you want to join the Etiquette Workshop conducted by Dr. Chan, the Associate Master of MLC in the Dining Hall of W33, Thursday 29/9/16 at 8:00pm. We are going to have our first High Table Dinner on Tuesday 11/10/16 at which many distinguished guests will come. Learn the Etiquette before you join the High Table Dinner.
