7/13Leaves! Leaves on five bean plants!

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.

Dear Bill,

Long time no see!

I just came back to Taipei from Europe. 20 hours on the plane really made me tired.

I knew about Typhoon Melissa from the TV news. On TV, I saw many houses in Kaohsiung were damaged. Are you O.K. down there?

The weather in the mountains of Europe was very different from the weather in Taiwan. It was just early October, but it started to snow in the places I stayed.

Still, my trip to Europe was great fun. Before I went, I was worried about the language. I can't speak German or French. But I was surprised to find that English was still useful there! I spoke to people without any problem, and I even made some new friends on the train!

Perhaps I will go to Spain next summer. Will you join me?

Your friend,

Alex
