Congratulation! You made it! As a student who has already took this class, I’ll tell you that do not afraid to ask questions in the class because your question could be others too! The reason you came here to take this class is because you want to improve yourself. If you’d like to do well in this class, there are few things you need to remember. Never chatting and using others work without citing, this is a big deal in college. Try your best to do all homework because the textbook will tell you a lot about grammar stuff. Also, show up on time, you might not want to loss you point from being absent. If I need to take ESOL1000 again, I will not skip the class just simply because I want to sleep at morning. What’s more, I benefit a lot from this class since I learned how to make a good structure about writing an essay, I can share my homework with you to see how huge improvement I have made. Although I still have grammar mistakes, I’m trying my best to reduce them as I can. I used to have no ideas about preposition, after taking this class, I think I can be confident to use them! As for grammar, I will ask my roommate continue to help me, she helps me a lot when I was lost about grammar. Good luck for taking this class!

Sincerely, Lu Chen

For Antonio


December 5th, 2016 Posted 12:19 am

Dear Antonio,

I heard you’re from Italy and as a student who has already taken this class, I’d like to say that welcome to the Unite States! I don’t know if things are different in Italy, but in the Unite States, you may want to learn some tips from me about being a good student in the writing classes. First, you should attend this class on time, you might not want to lose your points for being absent. And you ought to take part in classes because the college syllabus requires us to get involved in every class. You had better not use the cell phone unless there are some words you don’t know because the cell phone will distract your attention from listening the class. The most important thing you should focus on is do not cheat and don’t forget citing sources if things are not coming from your mind. You could get expels ed because of that.

Yours, Lu

How to Study Psychology Well


November 13th, 2016 Posted 2:48 pm

I was interested in psychology because one of my friends told me her major is psychology and she said it is really fun to learn! I’d like to watch crime dramas since middle school especially micro expressions dramas. In my opinion, if you want to study psychology well, the first thing you need to do is like what you are learning. Interest is the best teacher. Also,  you need to keep practicing and making sure you understand all that professors have said. There is no way to learn psychology well without practicing.

A Hand Gesture


October 31st, 2016 Posted 6:55 pm

For today, I’m going to talk about how a hand gesture has different meanings in different countries.   For example, “thumbs up” in lots of countries like America and China is a very common gesture to show support and agreement. Thumbs up have the same meaning with “well done”, “great” in America and China and some other North American countries. However, in some areas like Australia, if you moved your thumb up and down, it means you are not respecting  someone. Also if you are in Germany, thumbs up means the letter L.

My Favorite Movie


October 12th, 2016 Posted 6:53 pm

My favorite movie is “Finding Nemo”. I watched this movie when I was 8 years old. There are three main characters named Marlin, Dory and Nemo and Marlin is Nemo’s father. The story talks about Nemo getting captured while he is swimming around the water. Marlin is so worried that he decides to look for Nemo. However, there are obstacles in his way. Luckily, Marlin finds Dory while looking for his son and Dory’s positive attitude inspired Marlin finally to find his son Nemo. This movie is special to me because when I was a child, my mom was very busy with her work and this was the first movie that I had ever seen with her. It reminds me of my mother.

Above-ground houses is my choice


September 27th, 2016 Posted 5:26 pm

For me, I prefer living in above-ground houses. Assuming you are living in the underground house, the environment can be very humid and if you want to put some food in there without a refrigerator, food will soon be covered with mildew. Imagine you’re eating these food unnoticed, the results can be predicted and it cannot be good for sure. This situation will still happen notwithstanding people are living above-ground houses, but it will be maintained at a relatively slow stable speed. Also, living in the underground house can be messy. The underground technique might be not as good as above-ground. Take the network, for instance. Lots of people in the current era cannot live without the network at all and I am the one of them. I need to use Internet everyday to chat with my friend, do homework online, play some games and so on. What’s more , living in the above-ground house is very convenient. Suppose that you have a car, and above-ground traffic have well-developed, you can reach wherever you want.

My chemistry teacher


September 13th, 2016 Posted 5:53 pm

I’d like to introduce you to my high school chemistry teacher. She is not tall and she has long curly hair with big eyes.  Her smile impressed me most that it seems can make everybody happy. She was like an angel to take me into the door of the chemistry. When I did something right, she always praised me in class. Sometime, I was wrong about something, she would talked to me after the class and left me respect. She is good at catching our attention. I met her at cram class, and I haven’t got to chemistry before. Before the first class, she gave us a friendly smile to eliminate the embarrassment of the first meeting. That’s a really sweet smile! And then she used an experiment to draw our attention to how to put an egg into plastic bottles. First, she poured hot water into bottle to heat it up, next she put the egg on top and sprinkle some cold water near the beak. That’s where amazing things happens. The egg slowly slipped from the mouth of the bottle to the bottom of the bottom. We all were so surprised that we can’t even closed our mouth. After that, she explained us how this is work in detail. She is a teacher who always can give us the clearest explanation. She also like making friends with students, we all considered her as a big sister. I missed her a lot since I came to America to study.
