It’s always the busiest and the most hectic during the first few days of a term at Monol. Not counting the activities upon the students’ arrival, the usual hustle and bustle in the campus is usually observed as early as 7:30 AM on the first Monday of a term, as teachers and managers prepare for the materials and venues for the students’ level test. By 8:30 AM, everything will be all set – the test papers, the audio files, and the teachers.
The students will, then, sit down, get their brains into working, and start taking the test.
Monol’s level test consists of two activities that basically cover the assessment of all the students’ macro skills, which are listening, reading, speaking, and writing. First, they get to test their listening and reading comprehension skills and later on, they try to communicate with their teacher by responding to some profiling questions and speaking exercises.
After the level test in the morning, the students spend their afternoon learning more about Monol through an extensive orientation. The orientation given during these times elaborate the policies and regulations of the school, as well as the basic procedures to make their stay more comfortable. Everything should be done by 5:30 or 6:00 PM.
The new students indeed are fully occupied during their first Monday. However, as a tradition, all their hard work is rewarded with lots of pizza later in the night along with opportunities to meet and make new friends.
