Thanksgiving

Last Thursday was Thanksgiving. This was my second Thanksgiving in the USA. Totally about 22 people were in my house. My uncle cooked Thanksgiving dinner. He prepared for dinner started from morning to evening. We had a lot of great foods in the dinner because he is a good cook. ^^ I was so full at that night because after dinner we ate apple pie and my birthday cake that my cousin bought for me. Everybody sang birthday song for me. I was so happy many people celebrated my birthday.

My cousin's family came from NY and they stayed in my house three days. Her daughter and son are very cute. This is my fist time somebody called me “aunt”. That is very interesting for me. ^^ Therefore, I spent a lot of time played with my niece and nephew. Unfortunately, three day passed so fast. I really enjoyed with all relatives in Thanksgiving. Hope I can see my niece and nephew as soon as possible. I miss them so much. T.T

Multicultural Fair



Friday we had a multicultural fair in HZF. Each country did very good job. I got a lot of information about other countries culture. In my group, Taiwan group, we prepared a lot of food that were Bubble tea, mochi, rice noodle, and tea egg and some traditional stuff. I am very happy that many people said our food so delicious. I’m proud of my country. I had a good time with all MEI teachers and students and thank you all of visitors. ^^

The semester is almost over

Time is going so fast. The semester is almost over. I improve my reading comprehension a lot but others are so so. This semester is not very tough for me except writing and reading. I have already applied Graduate School of Delaware University for spring 2007. If they accepted my admission, I will move to there. If they don’t, I will study in MEI one more semester and then continue to apply other school for fall 2007. So far, one thing I can do is just waiting.

Home Schooling


This week we read of Home Schooling in NS. Therefore, Nina invites her friend to come to our class to give us a presentation about Home Schooling. Michelle is home schooling her children whose age are 6, 9 and 11. Home Schooling means parents teach their child at home instead of regular school. We asked a lot of questions about her experience of home schooling. It was very interesting for me because this is my first time to know what the home schooling is. In Taiwan, we can not choose to home schooling our children. Everyone has to go to regular school. It is illegal for parents don’t send their children to school. If parents don’t send their children to school, they will get some problems. For instance, they will go to jail or something like that. Anyway, after I listen to the presentation, in my opinion, I think regular school is better than Home Schooling. What do you think?

The Five People You Meet in Heaven


Actually, this is not my first time read novel in English. I read children novels four years ago, at that time it was very hard for me even though it was children novel because my English was very poor. Now, my English is better than before, therefore, this novel is not very hard for me. The beginning of reading novel I’m not really enjoying it because the beginning is a little hard to understand what happen in the story. When I read more and more then I’m enjoy reading it now and the handout helps me to understand the story a lot. I’m not really enjoying listening to the story because the video sound is not very interesting. If I have time, I would like to read other novel because it can improve my reading a lot.
