Since March 1, 2012, RPL (Rekayasa Perangkat Lunak or Software Engineering) Laboratory assistants have started to impose English Day every Tuesday and Thursday. At first, it was interesting. Some of the people had chosen not to say anything that day while in the laboratory, while the others could only say, “One does not simply talk in English.” Well, yeah. 9gag virus is spreading rapidly.
Actually, this is not the first time a laboratory impose an English Day. If you have ever visited Programming Laboratory, you would have seen English Day announcement on the door. However, as far as I know, it is not held any longer. As for the other laboratory, I haven’t heard anything about it.
The thing is, I’m actually enjoying the English Day in RPL Laboratory. It helps me, and the others, to practice English involuntarily. It doesn’t matter whether our English is not good enough. Quoting the announcement posted on the door,
Just try it, dude!
