My very first attempt to act and speak in Tamil for a video adaptation of "Step by Wicked Step" novel written by Anne Fine; such an interesting assignment for the subject "Literature in English Language Teaching Materials" where students were tasked to translate the dialogue to another language and act it out. Watch this video and tell me what do you think of my Tamil accent and acting skills :)
Below is the most generous comment given by my TESL senior, Pritpal Singh about my acting. Alhamdulillah, most of my classmates enjoyed this video. In fact, other group members did their best as well because I enjoyed watching their videos too.
And this morning, we had a brief "TESL Oscars" where prizes were given out for winners of this video competition and other assignments. Alhamdulillah, I won the award "Best Actor" for this Tamil video and I feel truly honored because my hard work in memorizing the scripts in Tamil really paid off. I must also thank my group members, Alexs who edited the video, Hema and Precintha, the translator and script writer for the English and Tamil videos, and Niwashini for helping out with the camera, narration and all the technical stuff. Thank you to Madam Mallika Vasugi for giving me the chance to feel the glimmer and glamour of such award; I am so humbled by it!
Alhamdulillah, for once I have won the tittle "Best Actor" in my life and I am looking forward for my acting career in future insyaallah :)
P/S: I would like to assure all of you to learn new languages as it is totally fun. TESL course is also very interesting; I love it!
