Moe Thura Khant from Myanmar shares his experience at HTMi (Singapore)

Hi! My name is Moe Thura Khant. I am from Myanmar.

My stay in Singapore has been a great experience so far. Although the weather is very hot and the recent presence of the haze, I feel that Singapore is a very vibrant city due to the people and the environment. The amazing foods have also caught my attention. Especially those famous local dishes such as Hainanese chicken rice, Singapore chili crab and many more.

As for the facilities in HTMi (Singapore), it is very spacious and has a warm welcoming atmosphere. When I first arrived, the airport pickup had made my arrival here much more convenient. The orientation that was conducted during the first two days has helped me gain more knowledge about my classmates and the institute itself. The lecturers and everyone else have helped me settle down comfortably, especially giving me proper guidance in my academics. The past few weeks have been vigorous but I strongly believe that it will help me in my future. Overall, my experience in HTMi (Singapore) and my stay here have been both a satisfying and enjoyable one, thus far!


Academic Business English (ABE) at Jewel Changi Airport

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!
