Please:- a) give up to three practical examples of how you intend to use the knowledge, skills and connections you will gain from your scholarship. Possible tasks can be personal and/or professional; and

b) list any possible constraints you think may prevent you from achieving these tasks.


Program = TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages)
2000 characters

a) First example is adopting and implementing the way Australian lectures teach the students who will become English teachers in the future. Second, conducting researches related to English teaching practice that aims to overcome the issues of English teaching and learning practice in Indonesia. In addition, I can have collaborations with my connections such as the other AAS awardees, lecturers and friends in the university where I am accepted.

b) One possible challenge is the support from the government and the institution where I teach that might not be as I expect. Another is the fact that the curriculum in Indonesia which constantly changes every time we have a new Minister of Education. The last is the facilities in the institution such as laboratory, library, multimedia equipment and journals that might not be adequate enough to support the teaching and learning process as well as research conduct.

Dany, you only need to revise your response for question A in this response statement. That is because you are responding from the point of view of a person who is about to take, or is still enrolled in the masters class. The actual response needs to coincide with the way that you apply the lessons you were taught and learned during your course of study. Therefore, an actual application response is required, in a real time setting. So discussions about doing research are out. The response about collaborating with your Australian counterparts need to be further developed, and how you plan to retrain the English teachers in your country needs to be expanded as well. Your 2 examples will be sufficient, provided it is properly developed as a response. Focus on the improvement of the response to Question A. Question B is sufficiently dealt with in your response.

The revisions you made are relevant to the prompt requirements provided. Since you have yet to take the course and actually experience the difference in the way classes are taught and learn about the different manner of lecturing, module development and the like, it is enough that you gave an overview response for the description. you can't go into too much detail at this point because of those reasons. The second prompt response you wrote is also better aligned to the expectations and offers a better idea of the obstacles you may face when compared to your previous version. If Hussaini doesn't have anything he wants to change or edit, then you could consider this essay to be in its final form.

Thanks @Holt
One more thing. You mentioned earlier that things related to research are out of this essay. What if, say I want to be a lecturer after I finish this master program, and I want to do research about English education in Indonesia, for example about the typical problems that people face, and then share my findings to the other teachers, lecturers and researchers in conferences, can't I mention that in my essay?

Dany, it all depends upon the narrative that you want to deliver at this point. If you insist that the research is relevant and you can actually convince the reviewer of your reasons, then do it. I won't stop you. I cannot give you any more advice at this point as per the new forum policies. If you want to make sure that your response actually represents the required answers though, I suggest that you consider connecting with me privately using the Services link above. At this point that is the only way that I can get back to you. It would be the best way to ensure a thoroughly developed and responsive statement on your part for both questions. I'll be happy to do my part in finalizing the paper for you because you seem to have difficulties in creating the final form due to additional ideas on your part.

Well @Holt
I guess you're right since honestly I'm not good at research. In fact I feel better if I'm enrolled in coursework program instead of research since I would have no idea what to write about (even though I have some good ideas to start to).

Thank you for the offer. Perhaps I can use it later if I'm stuck with my paper, of course IF I'm accepted and make it to Australia :D
