If you take English for Academic Purpose 2, the homework will be look like this

It is taken from

Item Homework given 17th September


1. Make sure you MASTER all the words and phrases on page 10 and words/phrases at the top of the columns on pages 11-16.

  1. MASTER means:
    1. You can pronounce all the words. (Where is the stress in the words, for example?)
    2. You can use the words and phrases spontaneously in a conversation. So without looking at the book?
    3. You know which preposition follows a verb
    4. You can translate difficult words/phrases into more simple language by using synonyms


There’ll be a short test next week to see if you do indeed master the language.


2. Learn the discussion phrases off by heart.

If you’ve got one, please bring your English-English dictionaries to
every lecture as I haven’t got enough to go round. (You could take
turns doing this.) The more dictionaries we have, the better. For those
of you who can’t afford one or don’t want to buy one, is a good dictionary site.


Learn all the words and phrases from unit 3 if you haven’t yet done so.
I don’t want to hear any excuses for homework that hasn’t been done
from now on.

Broken heart… laptop gw tiba2 layarnya flickering gitu (tahu kan kalo ada sinyal HP masuk)…. gw yg udah firasat jelek langsung backup semua data ke harddisk external.Eh pas transfer2 file… monitornya  mati hiks hiks…. ya udah deh…. ternyata backlightnya mati…. bete….
Pas ngeliat2 bareng Ronald Halim tentang laptop gw, dia bilang backlight-nya mati, dan mesti diservis… posting di milis, dan tadi ada yg nyaranin make monitor external aja… katanya di EWI biasanya ada monitor external yg free tp dimana ngambilnya ya.
Hari sebelumnya gw sempat bilang "laptop gw udah mulai lambat, kayanya mau gw ganti". Ternyata laptopnya ngambek sama gw dan layar monitornya mati, setelah sebelumnya flickering. Udah gitu bagian kanan bawahnya gosong. Bener2 nyebelin….
konsultasi sama temen2 di TUD, lalu dikasih saran2… antara lain nyari monitor external (monitor PC biasa)… berburu monitor yg dibuang lah gw ini… dapet di gedung EWI (gedung paling tinggi di TU Deflt), malam2 gw ngegotong monitor gratisan 17 inchi (yg tanpa kabel power). Untung banget ga disangka  maling…. kan bisa dikeroyok masa yg beringas…. haha jadi inget kejadian Suci dan Etty yg dicurigain satpam pas mau onshore field trip….
Efek samping: tangan gw jadi gemeteran… hiks, jaraknya deket, tapi monitornya berat banget booo… udah gitu punggung gw sakit lagi hiks hiks…..
Sayangnya monitornya nggak ada kabel power, pas dapet kabel power (pinjeman dari Ikram),… ternyata monitornya nggak berfungsi….. sia sia penderitaan gw membawa2 monitor berat itu dari EWI ke spacebox =(… untungnya gw dikasih monitor eksternal sama Widita, anak master Embedded Systems di TUD yg lagi internship di Eindhoven =).. (thanks Widita)….

Selasanya gw bawa monitor itu dari Eduparolan (deket Albert Heijn + di seberang Roland Holstan) ke Spacebox, sekitar 30 menit jalan kaki. Mana paginya sepeda gw dikempesin orang tak bertanggung jawab lagi… =(….. jadilah gw hari selasa berjalan kaki selama 30 menit sambil mendorong trolley Aldi berisi monitor gede. Untung banget nggak hujan…..

benar2 monitor perjuangan

gw perlu ruwatan nih… selasa kemarin (Dec 9th 2008) sepeda gw ban belakangnya ditusuk orang
(nggak cuman gw, tapi sederatan orang disini bannya ditusuk). minggu
lalu laptop gw rusak monitornya (skrg gw pake monitor external + laptop
yg monitornya rusak)…
skrg gw pake
laptop + monitor external…. (yg dikasih orang)…. jadi gw mikir2
beli laptop…. (which is yg paling murah itu 500an euro…) kayanya
ini bener2 membuat liburan gw mesti berhemat2 huhuhu (kayanya gw
liburan ke dalam belanda aja)…..

2 minggu sebelumnya kunci sepeda gw macet
(kuncinya jd mesti dipotong).

Skrg udah winter dan dingin
abis… gw males keluar2… bayangin aja jam 8.40 matahari baru terbit
abis itu jam 4.30 udah kaya magrib…. kayanya dulu pas di jepang ga
segini2 amat deh.. apa gara2 makin dkt ke kutub ya??

Gara2 laptop rusak, rencana winter gw berantakan.
Tadinya masih 50 50 ke prague. Tp sekarang berhubung gw mesti nabung 2
bulan buat beli laptop baru… winter gw di belanda aja. Semula udah
agak goyah gara2 abis holiday ada 2 ujian + 2 tugas gede… skrg
setelah kejadian laptop gw… well liburan di belanda aja…..

setelah winter holiday 2 minggu, ada 2 big assignment menunggu gw + 2
exam yg bahannya blm tersentuh sama sekali =(, itu bikin gw planning
mempersingkat liburan jadi 1 minggu aja jalan2 keluar belanda

dan dana gw yg gw tabung palingan baru 250 euro bulan lalu …. buat jalan2 tapi rasanya terpaksa gw gunain buat beli laptop

Summary dalam 2 minggu terakhir ini
1. Kunci sepeda gw macet, shg mesti dipotong (10 euro melayang)
2. Laptop monitornya rusak
3. Sepeda gw (dan orang2 sederetan di dorm gw) ban belakangnya ditusuk orang… huhuhu keluar duit deh….

sekarang mempersiapkan 2 ujian + 2 big assignment minggu dpn…

Sedang membayangkan rektor ITB pake baju santa + berteriak “hohoho” sambil muterin dormitory + mengetuk pintu kamar anak2 penghuni asrama….  Itu yg dilakukan Rektor TU Delft hari ini. Hasil: foto bareng rektor + kue2 gratisan hehehe =P
