國中英語基測出現過 speak 的考題。

Kelly is a very special student in my class. Her father is an American, and her mother is a Chinese from Hong Kong. Kelly was born in New York and finished elementary school there. Then the family decided to move to Taiwan because Kelly's father found a new job in Taipei. Kelly could speak only English, but her parents did not send her to a special school for foreign children. They wanted her to study in a regular junior high school and to make friends with the local students.

Kelly has to work very hard at school. English is easy for her, of course. Math is OK, too. But Chinese and History are big headaches for her because she cannot read the books in Chinese. She often comes to me, her English teacher, to ask questions about Chinese and History. She is trying very hard, and I believe she will do well in Taiwan.
