I also completed MUET 2009 in a quite good grade :)
The tips and tricks to speak well in English is very simple. That is get a English newspaper. Get a free daily TheSun newspaper is already more than enough.

What is HIV/AIDS?
HIV/AIDS is the acronym for the human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.HIV is the virus that causes AIDS, which is incurable. More than 1 million people in the United States currently are living with HIV/AIDS, and more than half a million people have died of AIDS since the U.S. epidemic began in 1981, according to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases(Source:NIAID). HIV/AIDS attacks the body’s immune system and is most often contracted through sexual contact. HIV/AIDS can also be passed to another person through contact with blood or body fluids, such as through blood transfusions, sharing needles contaminated with HIV, and during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Currently there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, and it is eventually fatal. However, prompt diagnosis and treatment can reduce or delay the onset of some serious complications, such as opportunistic infections, and can improve quality of life. Prompt diagnosis can also minimize the spread of the disease to others. In some cases, rapid treatment with medication can prevent the development of HIV/AIDS after exposure to the HIV virus. This prophylactic treatment needs to begin within 72 hours after exposure to HIV/AIDS.
What are the symptoms of HIV/AIDS?
The symptoms of HIV/AIDS infection result from the HIV attacking the cells of the body’s immune system. Early in the disease, many people with HIV infection have no symptoms. Some people may experience flu-like symptoms that occur about four to eight weeks after infection. Early symptoms of HIV/AIDS can include: * Fatigue
* Recurring fever
* Swollen glands
* Weight loss
* Yeast infections
Serious late-stage symptoms and complications of HIV/AIDS
