Activity 1:

To conduct an interview

Work in pairs

Imagine yourself as a journalist working for You or Femina . You must interview a famous person to give your readers an idea of his/her lifestyle and personality. Now reverse the roles. It is important that you stick to your personal identity for the interview. Remember that you are an important and unique person in your own right. One doesn’t need to be Mark Shuttleworth to be “somebody”.

Here you have a list of questions that you might find useful during the interview. Feel free to add more questions if any characteristics that you know of are not covered by the list below.

  1. Where were you born?
  2. What is your home language?
  3. Do you speak any other languages?
  4. What is your favourite colour?
  5. What foods are you especially fond of?
  6. What film did you enjoy most? Why?
  7. What website do you visit most frequently? (If applicable)
  8. Who is your role model? Why?
  9. What is your best character trait?
  10. What is your worst character trait?
  11. What year has been your best up to now?
  12. What makes you furious?
  13. What was the nicest present you ever received?
  14. If you got shipwrecked and you could have only one person with you, who would that be? Why?
  15. Do you see yourself firstly as a sportsman/woman, academic person or cultural person? Why do you say so?
  16. What achievements in the above fields are most important to you?
  17. What occupation will you follow when you leave school?
  18. Who or what inspires you to give your very best?
  19. What is your best physical attribute?
  20. What is your worst or weakest physical attribute?
  21. If you could change something about your body, what would that be?
  22. What is your biggest dream for South Africa’s future?
  23. What do you still want to achieve in life?
  24. If a “fairy godmother” granted you one wish, what would that be? (Remember, the answer “That all my wishes might come true”, does not apply)

25. If you were to visit the earth in the year 3003, what would you expect to find here?

Group discussion

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
