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.

Welcome to your favorite radio show, "Music Wonderland"! March 21 will be the 300th birthday of Bach, the Father of Music. So this month we are going to have several special programs on this great man of music.

Johann Sebastian Bach was born in Germany in 1685. During his lifetime, Bach wrote a lot of music for the church and for his students, but he himself did not keep his own works carefully. Luckily, his second wife copied them and saved them for him. So today we can still remember Bach through his music.

Bach married twice in his life and had 20 children altogether. He was a man who loved his family very much. When his first wife planned to learn the piano, he wrote two music books for her. And he also wrote music for one of his daughters to tell her that too much coffee was bad for her health. I am now going to play a song for you from this interesting Coffee Cantata.

And we will hear more about Bach after the song.
