Dear Mr. Chay Yee

My Experience in Coleman College

I am Jakkaphan Maitripoj, a former student of Coleman College. I am writing this letter to express my gratitude and appreciation towards this institution which has greatly contributed to my academic progress and character development. When I first came to Singapore, I was like a frog which just came out from a deep well. I knew little about how stiff the competition is in Singapore. In fact, I was taken aback and felt very worried when I failed my Math and English Primary 6 diagnostic test at Coleman College. Fortunately, with the help of Mr. Wong, my Math teacher, and Ms. Adrian, My English teacher, I put in my optimum efforts and hoped for the very best. Initially, my hope of getting into a secondary 3 was faint but with their help, I could see a brighter light in the darkness. Indeed, I finally managed to get into secondary three. This definitely cannot be made possible without these wonderful teachers. Furthermore, I have also learnt various beneficial values from Coleman College. Mr. Wong taught me about resilience and integrity. One quote from him which I remembered until now is ‘If you believe you can do it, you can do it. Miracle only happens to those who believe’. This quote never fails to lift up my spirits whenever I feel discouraged. He also emphasized on honesty. Once, one of my classmates attempted to cheat in a Math test. Mr. Wong ferociously torn his paper and declared him as cheating. This made me realized of the detrimental consequence of cheating. There are many other values which I was taught but these two values are the most significance ones. After I have gotten into a secondary school, I still visited Coleman consistently to show my academic results. When I was informed about the scholarship program, I thought it would not be possible because a private education centre is neither funder by the government nor alumni. However, to much of my surprise, it was established. Although I did doubt the purpose of this scholarship initially, I skeptically accepted this generous offer. As the program progresses, my doubt slowly faded away as the English course proved to be highly effective and the college showed a deep concerned about a study. Through this program, I managed to make two grades improvement in my English within a year while coping with the increasing difficulty in English exams simultaneously. I definitely owe this achievement to Coleman College and my English teacher, Mrs. Tay. She is experienced and her teaching method is perfectly crafted to make the students score in exams. If this program will continue, I hope that Mrs. Tay will still be involved. To me, Coleman College is more than a mere education centre but it is rather a school which is sincerely concerned about the academic progress of its students. It ensures that the students can get in and, most importantly, can survive in secondary schools in Singapore.

Thank you, Jakkaphan Maitripoj

To: The Advisor of International Students, Ministry of Education, Foreign Students Unit From: Mr. Calvin Wiratama 13 March 2009 Report of my studies for the past two years I am writing this report to inform you about my studies in Singapore for the past two years. I am a student from a small town in Indonesia. When I first arrived in Singapore, I knew nothing about English. I have not been educated in English before. So, I have a bit of communication problem. Furthermore, the lifestyles here differ a lot from those in my country. I have taken quite some time to adapt myself to environment in Singapore. Everyone here is rushing for time while I am lagging behind, and so I have to bulk up. Since I have communication problem, I found myself an agent. She is an Indonesian, so she treated me very well. I was recommended a few language centres, including Coleman College, Brightor School, Cambridge College, Kumon, and others. I went down to all these language centres personally to check the learning environment. After some consideratons, I chose Coleman College because it has a better environment for study. In Coleman College, I took the government school preparatory course (prep class). This is a whole day course. In this course, we were only taught the two most important subjects, Mathematics and English Language. I was able to cope with my Maths, but for English, totally not. I have to start from zero and learn the basic. There were so many vocabularies and the grammar was very hard to master. After some time, a lot of progress has been achieved, and I was ready to sit for the PACT test. The test was done in October. The results were not so good, however it was above average. With this result, I was able to register to a government school. Then, I was enrolled into Broadrick Secondary School. In the past one year, I have been doing consistently well, and I have cleared all my subjects, including English. This year, I am taking my GCE ‘O’ levels. I wish I could score and get into a good junior college.
