Hello  dear members , lets read out a prose passage from our favorite book

This  way  we concentrate on our pronounciaton  articultiaon  and presentation style.



An extract from Paduma meets the Sunbird

Paduma and the Monitor

His left cheek is stinging.

Paduma bites his lips and keeps his head up, determined not to cry.  He hears the sniggers and whispers of the children seated behind him.  Those seated in front  turn to look; they have gleeful grins pasted across their faces,

  MissRupa goes  striding back to the blackboard to continue the lesson,  Paduma  stares at the back of her head to hide his confusion and anger.

  The plan that worked so well int he previous year has gone badly this time.

  Miss Premini had been  the class teacher in Grade Four . A kind and  placid person , she had struggled to maintain order in her class of hyperactive nine year old children.  the  girls were well behaved but the boys had brought the class to the edge of anarchy.  Most of them came to school because their mothers  had threatened to hang them by their ears if they didn't; they only needed the slightest excuse to create some disturbance that would  prevent lessons being taken.

Paduma had been , by far, the noisiest and most incorrigible. Miss Premini had been at her wit's end till she made an inspired decision.
