First Five Days Back To Campus

Welcome back to campus! For the first day of each subject, lecturer usually talk about syllabus and rules during courses. Fyi, I studying English Language and Literature in Indonesia University of Education. This is my third year and the courses are more difficult and stressful than before. I contracted eight courses this semester and here they are :)

Semiotics is the study of sign or symbol. Download the syllabus here. The source books for this course are:

Chandler, Daniel. 2002. Semiotics: The Basics. London: Routledge.
Jakobson, Roman. 1975. Quest to the essence of language: Selected Writings II: Word and Language. 345-359.
Lakoff, George dan Mark Johnson. 1980. Metaphors We Live By. Chicago: Chicago University Press.
Sukyadi, Didi. 2010. Teori dan Analisis Semiotika. Bandung: Rizki Press.

The lecturer did not come for urgent reason. But my class got the copy of the material that we are going to learn. Based on Defining Children's Literature by Peter Hunt, " children's literature is books read by, especially suitable for, or especially satisfied for, members of the group currently defined as children."

The source book:
Egoff, Sheila 1996. Only Connect: Readings in Children's Literature. OUP, London

Conference interpreting, or simultaneous interpreting, is where interpreters listen to a speaker in another language and deliver a spoken translation of their speech in another language, in real time. This usually takes place with two interpreters working in pairs per language in a sound-proof booth and the audience wearing headphones with a push button to talk to microphones should they want the interpreter to ask the speaker a question in the language being interpreted.

ABS is a mandatory subject from faculty. We are going to learn and talk about language and art and make a presentation about it every week. I and my four other friends will present our understanding and knowledge about film! And at the end of the semester, my generation 2009 will have an event which mark as our final exam. Download the syllabus here.

This is also a mandatory subject. The form of lecture is presentation and my group will explain about religion study of Hindu. No syllabus yet for this subject but the lecturer give us a worksheet to fill and collect in the end of semester. And we have to attend a tutorial but the schedule is not publish yet.

Beside those six subjects, I also contracted other two subjects. There are Literary Theories and Literature and Cultural Studies. The lecturer couldn't come for urgent reason. Maybe next week, he will comes to class.

So far I worried about Pragmatics, ABS and SPAI for many silly reasons. I hope I can handle it and please wish me luck for go through this semester.

What's about your campus, anyway? ;)
