Wahyudi (Short Biography I)

Posted by Wahyudi English on January 17, 2008


I am a teacher of Pontianak State Polytechnic. I live in Pontianak with my wife and my two baby boys in a small house. Wiwik Rahayu, my wife, is an ordinary housewife. My first boy, Muhammad Iqbal Zahirulhaq, was born in Mempawah, a small city 70 km from Pontianak, on February 5th, 2006 and my second boy, Muhammad Islam Dhyaulhaq, was also born in the same city in June 13th, 2007.

I come from Semparung (now part of Desa Tri Gadu), a small village of Galing subdistrict, Sambas regency. I was born in that village on November 19th, 1975. I am the first child of five. In 1983 I went to an Islamic elementary school, Madrasah Ibtidaiyah, in Selangkin, Galing subdistrict. In 1989 I left my village for a small town named Sekura to continue my study. In this town, I went to a public secondary school, SMP Negeri I Sekura. In Sekura I live with my cousins, who also studied in the town, in a small dorm built by my cousin’s parents for their children, nieces and nephews. After having finished my secondary school with an average achievement, I went to a public vocational school, SMEA Negeri Sekura, now SMK Negeri Sekura, in 1992. I was majoring administration study program at that time. I was a star student in my class.

In 1994 I was awarded for my achievement in the class. I got a free ticket to enter Tanjungpura University without being tested. I took English study program of Teacher Training and Education faculty. Since my English background was very poor, I found many obstacles in following the class. It took me three semesters to adapt. In July 2000 I finished my study at the university with above average GPA.

Soon after having finished my study I was recruited by Pontianak State Polytechnic as a part time teacher. Besides, I was also a part time teacher in civil engineering faculty of Tanjungpura University. For about four years as a part time teacher, I was promoted as a full time teacher as a civil servant in the polytechnic at the beginning 2005.

As a civil servant, my main duty is teaching English. However, the director of the polytechnic assigned me to involve in a big project, Technological and Professional Skills Development Project, funded by Asian Development Bank as a supporting member. In August 2005 I was awarded to take an opportunity for English for Business Communication short course (three months) in University of New South Wales, Australia. I was also assigned to be a member of accreditation team for Accounting Department. In January 2007, for the second time I was awarded to take a chance for general English short course (one month) in Academy of Australasia, New South Wales, Australia. Besides, I took various domestic trainings and seminars. In February 2007 I was assigned by the director to take a responsibility as the head of Language Learning Center of the polytechnic (UPT Bahasa) until now.
