Don't Block Your Eyes When You "See" English!

Dear all,

I will finish checking all of your writing within the four-day holidays in Tainan and post the comment online if the Internet goes well. Then, I'd like you to count how many errors you make in your written work and compare the number of errors with that of the previous essay. Each time, you have to see how much you improve yourself in English writing.

Here is what I want to say to you at the beginning of the New Year:
Being an English major, you (I) need to have enthusiasm in studying English and using English. I hope to see your (my) improvement one day after another!

My dear, “Happy New Year!”

Weekly Journal!

Keeping a journal is a good way to give you insights. It tells you what you have experienced in life and how you have thought through contemplation. Reading novels or stories is another way. Fellow students, before you share your creation with others here, let's enjoy watching what O' Henry said.

Beautiful Writing (好文共欣賞)!

L4 “I Can !” by Winny (欣賞本文的正確性與流暢度)
Kacey was a man who lost both his legs in an accident. He didn’t give up his dream — playing basketball on the team. Although he had no legs, he still could do many things as well as others people. He made his dream come true. He wasn’t the best player on the team, but he practiced very hard. He also could play the baseball well.

The author gave us some examples of physically challenged people. They weren’t healthy, but they were active. They didn’t let their problems stop them from doing anything that they wanted to do.

Where there is a will, there is a way. We can’t be afraid of anything and do things without perseverance. When you are having trouble next time, just say ‘you can!’ With strong perseverance and wills, you will achieve what you expect to do.

L3 “Three Steps to Success” by Claire (欣賞本文的流暢度)
J.K Rowling, she writes Horry potter. She was not rich before. While working as a teacher, she didn’t have classes in the morning, so she always used her free time to write novels. She really liked to write novels. Afterwards, she married and had one daughter. However, her marriage was not happy, so she got divorced and then brought up her daughter. Although she needed to raise her daughter, she never gave up writing novels. Every morning she went to a coffee shop to eat breakfast and wrote novels. When she finished her book, she tried to find publishers but didn’t have any one to help her. She never gave up. From door to door, she finally found one to help J.K Rowling to publish. This book was called Horry potter. Now J.K Rowling is successful. “Never give up” is why she succeeds. That teaches me a lot. Don’t give up and work hard, and success belongs to you. But if you never work hard, success does not belong to you forever.

Lesson 7 “Science in the Kitchen” by Winnie (欣賞本文的簡潔性)
Science is all around us. If we look something closely and maybe you can see the science that makes it work. There are two examples. One is “Heat Air Expands.” When you boil an egg and sometimes heat causes the egg shell to crack. Then you can use a pin to make a small hole into the bottom of the egg that give air a way to escape. In that way, your egg won’t be cracked.
The other is you can put onions in the refrigerator before you cut them, because onions carry a kind of compounds that will make you shed tears. And in the case of the onion, you can prevent yourself from shedding too much tears
You can tell science in the kitchen to your mom or maybe your cook and they will love you more.

Skills of Presentation

You may spend some time finding an interesting article about "time management." You may also spend a great deal of time reading and digesting it. Definitely, you want to share with your classmates what you have found and read. Are you ready to do so?

First, give a visual aid--PowerPoint slices. Second, remember to show the key points on the slices. With preparation, it is for sure that your audience will invest their time in listening to what you say.

Giving an effective presentation is not an easy task. You need to equip yourself with some basic knowledge and skills. What you need most is 3 ps: practice, practice, and practice.
