Back in School Studying

I remember a time, a long time being out in the city working job-to-job with hardly any official, usable certification or diploma. It was difficult. Then one day, with Ain’s urgings I enrolled for a Bachelor’s Degree course. That was eight years ago.

This year, I begin my Master’s Degree. I never thought I would make it this far, but I am grateful to everyone who pushed me in the right direction from family to friends.

With the major reorganisation of my weblog, I have created a Research Checks category where I would be writing about my journey as a postgraduate student. Also, here is where I will list essays I will write about the topic. Perhaps my supervisor would be able to monitor my work and provide guidance based on my posts here.

My postgraduate research will investigate the effectiveness of tabletop roleplaying games as a language tool for ESL students At this stage, the study will determine whether tabletop RPGs would be a provide a structured and engaging method to improve an ESL student’s speaking skills.

Perhaps the topic might change in the future as I read and write more, but perhaps not as I have some experience and given a lot of thought into this.
