I’ve been doing a research about school over the internet lately, it is said that most likely in the future as the number of formal schools that exist at this time will be reduced drastically. For me personally, this is a shocking news as well as a good idea. However, it seems this has yet to be realized.

Along with the development of technology, many people argue that replacing the formal schools with school-based internet. It is true, there is an invention of technology called “webcam”. Webcam allows us to directly face to face with people via the internet, so maybe this kind of tool can replace our presence at the school in the future. Exercises and tasks can also be replaced by a variety of online exercises that can be sent via email.

But, it’s not that easy to replace the role of a teacher. A teacher not only teach a variety of subjects. However, a teacher also act as an educator who taught us how to behave. In other words, teachers not only teach the subject’s materials to students but also applying discipline and to train students to be mentally strong and having a good personality.

So, I can conclude is that the existence of schools that were replaced with school-based internet with in the future, can not be realized properly. Because, what is needed by the students not only for academic guidance but also personality guidance. And, it just might be achieved if the education system that is used is the system commonly used today.

Will it be possible to live forever?

My opinion, it is not possible, because every human being could not live forever, because God has determined the destiny for each of his people, there are given the longevity and there are also people who were given a short lifespan. and every human being has a different charity, there is a good charity,and also they have a bad charity.

They will live in another world, where in this world, every human being will live forever. and this is called eternal life or rather life forever. But the world will we find these differents, in the firts place is filed by good human, and whereas, the second place, occupied by people who often do poorly.

And many, this charity is determined by good or bad deeds, possessed by every human being during life on earth. If many people do a good deed or thing, they will go to a place called Heaven, and whereas, if a lot people of acts or a bad thing, they will go to a place called Hell.

But I think, called to live forever, where life is lived is no longer or have a sequel called eternal life.

Will there still be schools and teachers in the future?
People presume that in 50 years time, the number of schools will be reduced and education will be done by computers.  This is an interesting idea, but I’m not sure that this will be really happening in the future.

It is true that computers nowadays are really an advanced technology and it has many fantastic facilities. The invention of webcams allow us to chat face to face even we are very far apart. The internet are now commonly used by everyone and easily be accessed. The computer scientists have built a computer prototype program that can understand things people say, and can give a meaningful answer.

But human teachers are more than having someone to educate us. It is the support and the understandings that help us study and understand the lessons. The emotions while teaching and the body language that teacher has and computers don’t have which differing it. And the different kinds of styles each teacher has while teaching that makes it irreplaceable.

To conclude, I would like to say that online schools are an interesting idea. In 50 years time, it may be possible to have an online school and educations can be done by computers. But I believe real schools and real teachers will still be needed in the future.

Labschool Kebayoran or what we usually called Labsky is a school located at South 
Jakarta, it is a school to many students. This is a report about an interview about the students lifestyle. I interviewed six of my friends in XC with questions about movie, music, Internet, mall, study frequency, and relationship.

Movie: from all six persons I interviewed, it turns out that most of them went to the cinema twice a month. From what I can see here cinema has been an important part of their lives, and this interview stands up to the majority of labsky’s students that really loves to watch the latest movies in cinemas.

Music: Most of the students preferred foreign music more than Indonesian music, Foreign music outshine Indonesian music because of their genre and the artist that perform it. Indonesian music mostly revolve around relationship, heart break, and teenager’s life. While foreign music is very easy to relate to.

Internet: Labsky students spend approximately 2 hours a day on weekdays sitting in front of their computer and they would most likely to go to social network kind of site such as twitter, Facebook etc. While on the weekend they spend around 6 hours a day on the Internet.

Mall: Mall is a place where the teenagers in Jakarta hang out, because most of the mall in Jakarta have cinema, bookstores, café, restaurants, and game center. Labsky students are not an exception for this, they would go to the mall around 3 times a month to hang out with their family and friends. The most visited mall is Pondok Indah Mall since it’s located not far from Labschool Kebayoran

Study Frequency: the average time to study on the weekdays for Labsky students is 2 hours a day at their house. On weekends they spend an hour a day to study.

Love and Relationship: According to the students I interviewed, relationship is an important part of teenage hood and they already had a relationship at least once. 

My conclusion is that Labsky students aren’t so different to any other teenager in Jakarta because they have a similar lifestyle. They would follow the trends, that proves with the music and movie they preferred, most will choose a Hollywood movie rather than an Indonesian made horror films. That is my conclusion, thank you for your attention and I’m deeply sorry for any grammatical errors and such.

              “THE IMAGES OF LABSKY”

              The Images of Labsky, Labsky stands for “Labschool Kebayoran”. Labsky is a place where I study now, and also a place that produce successful people. And, the aim of this report is to present the lifestyle of Labsky’s student, based on English In Mind (Page 11 Unit 11). I interviewed 6 of my friends and ask them 6 questions that concerned on teenager’s lifestyle, such as; Their favorite movie, music and place to hangout (I mean as a Mall here), frequency of studying and using the internet and also, about love relationship. Here’s what I’ve got:


Over 60% students of Labsky, go to the Cinema twice a month to watch a movie. And sometimes, they spend 2 hours to watch movie from DVD. They also prefer to watch foreign movies instead of local (Indonesian) movies.


5 of 6 Students choose to enjoy foreign (International) music than local (Indonesian) music. According to them, they presume that foreign music has a better quality than the local’s. Well, if you check their music player you’ll find only about 5-10 local songs, the rest are foreign songs.


The majority of Labsky’s students, use the internet around 2 hours a day, on weekdays. While on the weekends, that number increased to  hours a day. Most of them use the internet to play games and social networking, but only very few who use it for educational purposes.


Mall is a very popular place among all ages, including teenagers. Most teenagers today, they go to the Mall to refresh themselves from stress and fatigue they got in school days or maybe just for hanging out. From the survey data, it can be seen that the average frequency of Labsky’s students go to Mall is 3 times a month. And, it also shows that Pondok Indah Mall is the most visited mall, among Labsky’s students.


On weekdays, Labsky’s students spend 2 hours to study at home and reduced to one hour a day on weekends.

Love Relationship

Based on the survey, over all the Students I interviewed, agreed that Love Relationship is important in adolescence. And after interviewing them one by one in personal, all of them have been in relationship for at least, once.

              So, I can conclude that teenager’s lifestyle, especially Labsky’s students, always follow the development of globalization, from year to year. They mostly follow what’s the current hits. For me, that is good that we (yes, I include myself in this conclusion) always pay attention and follow the development of globalization. But, we shouldn’t ignore our own culture, we have to appreciate it. I consider to balance the use of foreign culture and local culture in everyday life. It’s always better to keep everything in balance.

That’s what I can conclude based on the survey I have done. Thank you.
