My Uncle Jim does not talk much. He is always painting when be is at home. He paints after work and on weekends. Painting is his best friend and his life.

Uncle Jim does not paint for money; he has never sold any of his pictures. There are no people in his pictures. He only draws trees and mountains, but they are not like the ones we see in the real world. They have strange shapes and colors. I do not quite understand Uncle Jim's pictures, and he never tells us what he is trying to say with them. But I still like them a lot. To me, Uncle Jim has created a different but interesting world.

Katie wrote a letter to her English teacher and got a reply from him. Read their letters and answer the questions.

Dear Mr. Hu,

My family moved here from England three months ago. I can't speak Chinese well, and it's difficult for people to understand me. I'm losing confidence.

Could you please tell me what I should do?

Katie


Dear Katie,

I'm glad that you let me know about your problem. Here are some things you can do:

  1. Your class is going to have a Story Time this month. All of you should tell stories. You should tell one, too. I'm sure you can learn a lot from doing so.
  2. Try to practice speaking with your teachers and classmates. Don't be afraid.
  3. Talk to Nanako and Yu-kim. Nanako is from Japan, and Yu-kirn is from Korea. They might be able to give you some advice.
  4. Some foreign students told me that watching Happy Times on TV can help. The language is easy.

Please try these ideas and see if you can do better. Don't worry too much. I have confidence in you.

Mr. Hu
