Pare, The English Paradise Part 1

Wow, Wow......
That was what I said when I stood on Javanese land for thw first time. And, Do you know where was it?
Yeaa, this was in Pare, Kediri, East Java.
And, this is the story with full chronology:
FEE Center Students Friendship
Holiday Transition between 2nd to 3rd Semester in Senior High School, it was on July 2009, My School SMAN 1 Praya helded an English holiday program in Pare, Kediri, East Java. It was for 2 weeks there. I asked to my parents, was I permitted to joined it?. They said that they allowed me and would gave me money to paid the fee. I was so happy to heard that and directly paid the fee when the money given to me.
The participants were so many, it was about 60 person. Most of us were students of first and second year and added by 10 teachers as our beadle. We departed from our school by two buses, so it was by land and spent 26 hours to be arrived in the location. What an exhausting journey.
In Pare, we studied at an English course institute that named as Future English Education Center or FEE Center. The chief of the institute was so friendly, his name is Mr. Abdul Malik, he welcomed us when we arrived and guided us very well for the course. And also our tutors were young and friendly, it made me and friends enjoyed the course. Beside the dormitory, there was a bicycle rental, it was in Miss Ocha's Canteen. I rented one by Rp 20.000 for two weeks. By this bicycle, We could go around Pare and visited some places that were so famous there, like Garuda Park, and Alun-Alun Pare.

We stayed  at 4 houses as dormitory, two houses each for male and female. For me and most of male students lived in Al Kautsar Dormitory.

In studying process, we were divided into four classes that named like country name, for example my class was named as Australian class, and others were American, England, and the last one, was….  I forget it. We did not studied inside classroom, but we studied in the plaza of our dorm and also in our private room with our private tutor.

 We were very happy because the studying method was consisted of game and full speaking while studying grammar. It didn’t make us boring, but made us enjoy the studying.
In the last 3 days there, we bought some goods that we brought home as souvenir. Some of my friends bought special pare t-shirt, handy craft, English literature books, and some bought Pare exclusive food. For me, I bought t-shirt, four small bottles of honey, and some English literature.
And the last was tearful moment when we had to left them and returned to Lombok, So sad because maybe that was our last met and we didn’t know when we can meet again… I miss them, Mr Malik, Mr Faizin, Ms. Fitri, Mr. David, Mr. Aris and all of Pare, Pare Never Ending. I hope sometime I can return there again.
