ACTIVITY 2 HOW TO WRITE YOUR SUMMARY Dear Editor, I am writing this letter to express my appreciation to all Malaysians who had made my visit to Malaysia a meaningful one. Upon reaching Kuala Lumpur International Airport, I took a taxi to Kuala Lumpur city. The taxi driver greeted me with a warm smile and showed me to his taxi. He was also kind enough to recommend places of interest that I should visit in your country. Over the next few weeks, I travelled around the country. I visited Melaka, Pulau Langkawi, Pulau Redang and Genting Highlands, just to name a few. In Langkawi, I had the opportunity to be with the locals and also enjoy home-cooked dishes. I was truly touched by their friendliness and hospitality. It was a wonderful experience! What I found unique about Malaysia is the way people of different races and religions live peacefully as one. I noticed this from the way Malaysians celebrated their National Day. Clearly, the way everyone came together is an excellent example of tolerance and understanding. This is what Malaysia should highlight to the rest of the world. Let me say terimakasih to all those who have made my stay a memorable one. I will definitely come again and I would also promote Malaysia to all my friends back in England. Andrew Jacob

After receiving his bonus, dad took us to Layang-Layang Atoll, a beautiful coral island, situated north of Sabah We checked into holiday resort late that evening. Then, we immediately rushed out to witness the breathtaking sunset. After dinner, we went early to bed, looking forward to the activities we were going to do the next morning. Rising early, we went snorkeling in the cool, clear waters off the island. The scene before us was colourful and amazing. The live corals floated along with the movements of the current and we saw a wonderful variety of fish. Among them were puffer fish, clown fish and angel fish. The next day, we had another wonderful experience. We went scuba-diving under the supervision of an expert. I was glad to be close to nature. I thanked God for giving me this wonderful opportunity. On our last night, we stayed awake till the wee hours of the morning. It was because we were enjoying a fine barbecue by the seaside with fish that we had freshly caught from the sea. It was certainly a memorable holiday

They woke up very early that morning and drove down to Cherating. When they got there, the beach was already crowded. However, they managed to find a nice shady spot. Within minutes, Zahar and his sister had changed into their swimming costumes. Then, they dashed off towards the water. They found the water cool and refreshing. An hour later, they all gathered around their mother who was serving their lunch on a mat. As usual, their mother had prepared delicious dishes. They sat down and ate to their hearts content. After lunch, Zahar and his sister rested for a while. Then they had a competition to see who could build the biggest and best sandcastle. Their mother, of course, was the judge. Zahar felt proud when she chose him to be the winner. They then strolled along the beach together to look for seashells and managed to find some really pretty ones. Then, they went for another swim. They splashed about happily for an hour. Later their father called out that it was time to go home. By the time, he had loaded everything into the car. Zahar and his sister were completely fatigued. All in all, it was an exhausting yet extremely enjoyable day.

PRACTICE 3 Although people generally say that television is bad for children, research has proven otherwise. It has been found that TV is an interactive tool that encourages children to develop their social and communicative skills. By watching TV, they are more carefree, open and find it easy to communicate with others. TV also helps them develop their English Language skill through programmes like Sesame Street and Playhouse Disney. It is no secret that their listening abilities are enhanced as well as their speaking and grammar skills. Ultimately, TV also provides them a cheap avenue to firs-class knowledge through channels like National Geographic, Discovery, Animal Planet, TV IQ and the various other educational mediums available. Clearly, TV has plenty to offer to our children. It is a waste if parents misunderstood the wealth that provides to their children and prevent them from watching it on the excuse that it spoils them.

Write a summary on the advantages of television to our children. Begin with: Watching TV brings about the many advantages to children, such as ............
