Jewel Changi Airport is a nature-themed entertainment and retail complex on the landside of Changi Airport, Singapore. Linked to three of its passenger terminals, the centerpiece is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, named the Rain Vortex, which is surrounded by a terraced forest setting.

Our students were given an opportunity to visit Jewel as one of their lessons for Academic Business English (ABE). They were each given a task to complete within a given time limit. As Jewel is a well-known tourist attraction, students were asked to speak to five different tourists; each of different nationalities. They were instructed to ask these tourists relevant questions to know more about the reason for them to visit Jewel. The aim of this lesson was to allow students to approach and speak to strangers confidently as it is important for their future hotel careers.

Initially, our students were feeling a little shy but overtime they got the hang of it and they did an awesome job!
