But the truth is that I live in the United States and I don’t have much use for Spanish. It would be nice to know Spanish to communicate with my family, but I only see them a couple of days out of the year so, I don’t see the urgency for the language. I also hate it when people think I love spicy food. Even if my life depended on eating spicy food, I would rather die. My boyfriend is Italian and the first time I went to their house for dinner they made a bunch of spicy Mexican food for dinner.
It was the best decision they had ever made. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be here and learning with the other students. I know it was tough for them in America since they can’t speak English and I have seen them break down, but they never give up. I am really grateful for my parents because they have given up so much just for my sisters and I. They are the role model for me and without them, I wouldn’t have come this far to be successful.
He speaks Spanish like a foreigner and has difficulty reading it, let alone writing it. He had a son at 17 and never went to college. His life reads like the character of a teen drama: teenage dad struggling to make ends meet to support his family. My mom, on the other hand, speaks English with a heavy accent and went back to school in her 30s. The one thing they both have in common is they are both extremely
“I’m sorry,” The RMV observer said as he handed me back my learners permit and a piece of paper. Ashamed and disappointed, I got out of the car with my head down almost to the point of tears. To another kid, failing the road test the first time just meant that they would just have to wait until they passed before they could drive on their own. To me, it seemed like much more than that.
I do feel however, that all the stages up to about Industry vs. Inferiority I have mastered. When it comes to trusting others and myself, that is where I lack. I feel that the lack of trust affected each stage; some stages more than others. I feel it impacted my confidence through middle school and high school more so than the typical child. I am grateful for my adoptive parents giving me the time and learning to understand how to deal with a child who is not fully developed
School Year Round Why would anyone want to go to school a year-round? (Rhetorical Question) School should be a year-round because then students will not forget their learning, be more focused on their education and it will be easier to earn their credits in a shorter period of time. Firstly, A school year-round should be offered each year so students will not forget the learning. Many students that come back from their summer break most likely struggle on what they have learned, for instance, everyone ignores most of the subjects and methods that everyone discovered last year.
I could not figure out my identity either, I was in a culture shock and I decided to try to fit in with the American culture. I learned English in a month for I would not feel stupid and not being able to communicate. It was hard but being a Chicano is something to be proud of. This article seemed logical because I went through that.
Just because they are in their senior year teachers should see if that person is capable to read spell or write. Another thing is the students who puts their effort into school and still are not able to understand the subject then that will be different. For example, students with special disorders are the ones that will fall into that category. One of the many night students that sherry teaches said “I was a good kid and didn’t cause any trouble, so they just passed me along even though I didn’t read well and couldn’t write” (1). This example, shows that instead of the teachers using a method that gives her the power that she needs, students do as they please without much effort.
Finally 2 months later, I started school, everything was different to my country and there were people from all countries. I made new friends and I was doing so good in school, I were learning a new language, English, it was amazing. Even though,it was hard to read and speak the english i felt comfortable because in my class everyone was just learning like me. After the time passed I did it, but now i’m out of the ESL and sometimes I feel bad and less the other because almost in all my classes everyone can speak and understand English pretty good . While sometimes I don 't understand certain things and I feel embarrassed to ask for help or say that I didn 't understands.
The current generations learn in different ways that is not limited to in school learning. Technology has given access to information that is easier for younger generations to learn from. This has led me to believe that older generations think because of our excessive use of technology that we are not learning. Video games has increased physical and mental learning skills as a form of entertainment. While several different writing programs has helped schoolwork become easier and more efficient.
It has been a few months since we arrived here in America. The voyage over here was long and contained many problems, one being that the other ship that was meant to accompany the Mayflower was unable to make the journey with us. Several times the Mayflower’s sister ship the Speedwell leaked and eventually was unable to make the trip along with us and the Mayflower and was left in Plymouth, England. Some of the others traveling aboard the Speedwell were frustrated and decided not to go along with the journey, the rest aboard still determined to make the journey joined us on the Mayflower and the supplies on the Speedwell were transferred to our ship. Father was also considering abandoning the voyage as well, but mother and others convinced
Now while all this is in occurrence, another more beneficial school has ease of access to any ideal high school should and more. They have very well curriculums for students to become the best they can be and hold numbers resulting into most of their school ranking in Advanced Placement classes. The differences between these schools are far from becoming equal but this is evidence that our educational system is not equally diverse and that many students are suffering lacks of education forcibly due to education system. The education system has flaws spread out many schools in our nation. That being, our system is ready for an improvement.
Obviously these aren’t ideal recovery conditions for a man who’s had back surgery a few months prior. Jack served in the pacific, and as he served he began to realize how pointless the war seemed. He said that the pacific theater was “just God damned hot stinking corners of small islands in a group of in a group of islands in a part of the ocean we all hope never to see again” (100). One night, Jack became a hero. Since the PT boats that didn’t fire torpedoes also didn’t have radar, it was difficult for them to find each other.
Of course, that was more of a scare tactic to make sure we weren’t bad kids. The exchange from eighth grade to freshman year was actually pretty easy. Most high school teachers are surprisingly nice and lenient when it comes to certain assignments and things, and a lot of them sympathize with your problems. My first problem was trying to find people I could talk to because most of my friends were divided among other classes and I, being the only teenager in the world without a cellphone, was not able
The word they were to fix was “siting.” It was difficult for the students to comprehend that adding “ing” a lot of times doubles the preceding consonant. Once one of the students revealed the mistake, all of the students seemed to have their memory jogged of the concept but still wondered why. I believe that at this grade level they are beginning to make further connections as to why that we have these principles and rules for language. At the first grade level class that I observed they didn 't wonder why, they simply accepted the words as sight
