Assalamo Aleikom Everyone!
This is Aya Zemzem writing and I’m glad to tell you some of my experiences of the first school day!
After settling down the day before, today we were preparing going to the campus apium where we were going to have our classes. We were all curious about the teachers, the content of the lectures and of course the coordinators!
We were warmly welcomed by all the professors, teachers and all the coordinators and we had a introduction were we got to see pictures of precious summer camps. The head coordinator and some of the professors held beautiful speeches welcoming us to one of Malaysia’s best ranked university.
We also got to present ourselves and tell them a little bit more about what we do in Sweden.
The first class we had was with Dr Wan Suhaimi, professor in Islamic Worldview which was the opening of Summer camp 2013 with a very interesting topic which made me open my view on different islamic thoughts. I look forward into reading and learning more about this subject!
After Islamic Worldview, we had professional Koran teachers coming to us and we were tested in which level we were on and after that we were divided into 4 groups. We are going to learn tajweed in these groups and inshAllah we will really benefit from it.
The first day was over very fast and we had an interesting day filled with different topics and we got to see how it works on SMA apium.
I really look forward the next coming 5 weeks and stay tuned to know about what we are doing here i wonderful Malaysia!
