The Female Campus Scientific Research Committee at the Faculty of Languages & Translation organized a program titled 'Exploring the World of Fiction' on October 17, 2018. It was the first program of the Scientific Research Committee for the 2018-19 Academic Year for students of all levels.
In this program, upper-level students Ms. Abeer Abdulrahman Al-Asmary and Ms. Lama Hussein Saed Al-Shahrani introduced students to the world of literature. At first, they shared their experiences of exploring the world of fiction, and then the advantages/benefits of reading literary texts were highlighted. Additionally, visuals on the masterpieces of famous authors were displayed along with movies that are based on famous novels. This program aimed to encourage all the students - who are not yet familiar with English Literature - to familiarize themselves with the field from the very beginning of their academic career. It was emphasized that when learning the English language, reading will increase their receptive understanding of new items and it will stimulate the productive use of the target language. By reading a familiar genre in English literature like fiction, students were informed that it would help them improve their communication skills and learn from a new text.
English Department Supervisor, Ms. Safiah Ali Asiri, presided over the program. Faculty members and students who attended this program were an inspiration to the presenters who enthusiastically conducted the program.
