EDSA FKIP Untidar pekan ini menyelenggarakan English Week. Acara yang berlangsung mulai tanggal 25 September – 28 September 2017 ini diantaranya pembukaan dan lomba Spelling Bee (Senin, 25 sept 2017), News anchor (Selasa, 26 sept 2017),  Speech dan deadline pengiriman esai (Rabu, 27 sept 2017), dan Debate Competition (Kamis, 28 sept 2017).

Acara tersebut diselenggarakan sebagai wadah bagi mahasiswa PBI untuk menyalurkan kemampuan mereka di bidang yang terkait dengan bahasa inggris. Ahmad Ruhin Hidayat, mahasiswa PBI Semester 5, selaku ketua English Week Competition, mengatakan “Meski belum semua bidang terwakili tapi semoga saja karena baru pertama kali akan terus berkembang di tahun-tahun mendatang. Dan ini juga sebagai penjaringan untuk mahasiswa baru mana yang terlihat aktif untuk bisa diajak bergabung ke EDSA.”

Meski persiapan yang dilakukan oleh EDSA belum maksimal, total peserta yang mengikuti acara tersebut mencapai 104 peserta. Sebenarnya, peminat dari mahasiswa non-PBI sangat banyak, akan tetapi mengingat terbatasnya persiapan jadi untuk tahun ini baru untuk mahasiswa PBI.

Sri Sarwanti, M.Hum., selaku juri dalam Spelling Bee Competition, menyampaikan “Saya senang melihat antusisme anak-anak. Mereka bersemangat. Pronunciation mereka bagus, meski ada beberapa yang sudah baik namun kurang pas. Over all, dapat dikatakan acaranya sukses.”

Berdasarkan wawancara dengan ketua panitia English Week Competition, akan ada hadiah berupa uang pembinaan bagi 3 besar pemenang. Ahmad Ruhin mengatakan, “Alhamdulillah senang banget ma’am, namanya acara ya pasti ada kekurangan tapi melihat persiapan yang hanya seminggu dan jumlah peserta yang sudah lumayan ya bisa dibilang cukup puas lah ma’am. Meski masih banyak hal yang harus diperbaiki lagi.” (ER)
