Djuria introduced the names of colors, animals and fruits  in English and followed it up with a drawing activity. The Penjaringan children seemed enthusiastic in participating and were fully engaged with the lesson until the end.  Jimmy took his turn after a short break and invited the children to participate in a very interactive speaking practice activity. The class was filled with the children’s  laughter and excited voices.
