Can you imagine what would happen if you enter a new world? At the time Ava left her sister named Rae, actually she was accepted in a favorite school named Alisstare. The first day in the school she meets a mysterious boy. His name is Fido. He is so quite. Some other times, she meets another boy. This one is so famous in the school. His name is Kai. He is the son of the owner of the school, and he is very handsome. So many girls are attracted to him. One day, Ava gets insomnia. She comes out of the room and listens to music somewhere. She really loves the music. So, she listens to it secretly. Do you want to know what happens next in the story? You can read it in this novel.

I think, the book is page-turning and has a  lot of romance and music scenes. For you who likes music and romance book, this novel is highly recommended. I recommend this novel to teenagers who about 13-18 years old, because the story is like something we can find in our everyday life.

Meteor Shower

Matt and Velice are having a conversation in the class.
“How long didi it happen?”Velice asked Matt.
“It was just a while, I think” he answered.
“Aaahhh… that’s a waste. I should have watched it, too,” sighed Velice.
Suddenly, Rina showed up.
“Here! Here comes Rina!” Velice said.
Rina joined them and seconds after that Matt told the crowd about his experience watching Meteor Shower. “Did you watch meteor shower last night, Rin?” asked Maat.
She didn’t answer, then Matt continued.
“I watched it, you know, with my new telescope on the balcony at 9.00 PM in Jakarta. Can’t you believe it that astronomers in Hawaii did this, too at the same time! Isn’t it cool?”
“Fantastic!” exclaimed Velice, full of admiration.
Then Matt and Velice  continued their conversation, while Rina was observing Matt’s story.
“Wait….” Rina interrupted. Both Matt and Velice looked at her with questioning glance. “When did meteor shower happen in Hawaii?”
Matt rolled his eyes. “I told you. It happened at 9.00 PM! What’s wrong with you?”
“And you said that you watched it in Jakarta at 9.00 PM, too?”
“Aw, seriously, Rina,’ sighed Matt. “Yes,”
“Do you know that Jakarta’s local time is 5 hours ahead of Hawaii’s local time?” Rina asked Matt sarcastically. “So, it’s impossible if you watched  it the same time in Hawaii!”
Matt was speechless.

He 's Finally Here

Meilin was sitting on an old bench in front of the school library. She was waiting for Sam to return h errr book. The school library looked very creepy. Actually Meilin was very afraid while waiting for Sam. She waited for Sam anxiously. She didn't know there was a person who looked at her from a distance.


"Don't forget to bring it tomorrow", Meilin reminded Sam. She lent  her history book to him. And she asked him to bring it tomorrow because the book was due the day after. But, Meilin didn't know if Sam was listening or not since he was listening to music in his gadget.


Meilin kept checking her watch. "It's 1.40! Oh, my God! The library is close at 2.00. Where is Sam? Argh! If he comes later, I'll kill him!" fumed Meilin.  she kept looking right and left. She got a goosebumps. She felt she was watched from a distance. Suddenly,  someone touched hr shoulder...
"Aaaakkkkkk!! Who is that!!!" Meilin screamed in a shock.
She didn't have a courage to look back. Herveyes began to redden and she cried. Behind, there was a laughter of a boy.
" Hahahaha, I made it to tease you. Don't worry it's just me. I just want to return your book" it turned out it was Sam.
"Sam, are you insane. I hate you!Givee me my book and get out of my sight" snapped Meilin.
Looking how furious Meilin was, Sam started to weep. He never thought that his joke could make her fume. He pleaded to her. Realizing what time it was, they started to cry together since the clock ticked to 2.00 sharp !

Corporate Social Responsibility or CSR is our annually program. Every year, we do this program in different kinds of programs. In this year, LIA Pusat assigned all LIA branches and affiliates to conduct the CSR program in a form of teaching certain schools. What do we teach? English, for sure. The different thing of this CSR program is the ones who have to teach are students. Some students were offered to do this voluntary teaching. Before the D-day, they did some rehearsals from the materials given.

It was Monday, September 29, 2015. Ms. Santi, Mr. Bimo, Ms. Lala and Mr. Bambang were ready to head for the destination, Pondok Pesantren Al-Burhan located in Gedawang, Banyumanik. When they got there, it was quite quiet since some students just got their some days off due to Idul Adha. Therefore, some of them were not back from their hometown.

But, the show must go on. It was about 14.00, the T-time to start the teaching process. Waiting is not everyone’s favorite, by the way. So, while waiting, we took some pictures of the students, the teachers, the voluntary teachers, the Pondok pesantren staff and of course, the school building where they study. After taking the pictures, finally it was time to start the teaching.

There were two classes with two voluntary teachers in each class. Noval and Pascal taught Class A, while Risya Amanda Cahyani and Duanda Gumilar were in charge of another class. They started from introducing themselves and then asked the students to introduce their names. As soon as the introduction finished, they started teaching. The materials were provided by LIA Pusat: Greeting, introduction, place of origin, etc. They did drilling, filling in some blanks, matching, etc. The students looked enthusiastic, some of them even were better than expected.

2 hours passed in thrilling moments. For the students, according to Mr. Supriyono S.Ag, the headmaster, it was their first time to get guest teachers who teach English, and from the voluntary teachers, it was their first time, too, to teach in formal school. So, for both of them, this CSR program really gave them a great experience. So, there is a great chance to do another CSR program in a form of teaching.

Post Cards, Anyone?

By Ms/ Lala
Living in this era is probably lured by any instant things. Just name any things in our life now: Messaging, shopping books, any kinds of entertainment, all in instant access. People who used to live in 80s or 90s might miss some things like sending message to relatives or friends in handwriting form or just wait for postman to drop by. Shopping can be done in instant way, too. Just sit relax on your desk while browsing internet. Just the things you want to buy, click buy and pay, and the next day, your shopping is sent to you. Books. Remember bringing a lot of books to school or campus, with thick dictionary that would make your back hurt.

From the idea, I try to persuade my students to literally send post cards to their friends. I took one unit from ET 6 book, Star 2, about things in post office. Guess what? Many of them don’t have any experience to go to post office. Well, I can’t blame them if they don’t have anything to do there, why should they go there? But, as a teacher, I think this is a good way to introduce the way their parents and their grandparents send message in the past. Knowing the vocabulary in the post office is not enough if they don’t experience how to do it.
