I feel that I have grown more than I originally planned on because this class involved us more in the first quarter. I originally thought it was all just writing papers to improve our skills rather than do exercises that actually help us. I think this class gave me a great foundation to build off of in the future and to fine tune my writing skills in college and the future. I think this class for me has really opened my eyes to how lazy of a writer I was because I didn 't take the time or put the effort in. During this class I have improved in countless ways that will be needed to be successful in the next level of education.
According to the book, Shai 's are minorities and they don’t have the freedom and ability to express their feelings and voices. At the beginning of chapter four, Amir unceremoniously began a diatribe against Hazaras. Amir states as a child he never viewed of Hassan
Although, the teachings were not the same as when I entered elementary school. While being tutored at home, I would learn my alphabet and numbers in Spanish. When I was enrolled in school, I would learn my alphabet and numbers in English, along with other subjects. As I grew older, I could understand most of my assignments being given to me, the difficulty about it sometimes would be that I had homework in Spanish and in English. To some this would be fun, but to me it was a lot more work that had to be turned in.
Now just because I say this does not mean I cannot learn a new language. I just personally find it a lot more difficult to learn a new language because I only remember it being easy when learning the 3 languages. Because of these experiences I can listen to people and read peoples facial expressions. Even if I do not understand what they are saying I usually get the right idea. As a child when I could not speak any Dutch or English I had to rely on my 7th sense.
It is not because the contents of the journals are easier since I can write both reading responses and unscripted entries faster than typing into my laptop. The reason may be that I do not think much about the sentence structure before I write down something on paper. Also, I try to write really fast in order to put my thoughts down before I forget about them. The SAGES writing crew is very helpful that the tutors point out my grammar mistakes and train me to find my own mistakes. At first, they do not just look through my paper and help me edit it.
I still have struggles with the grammar, but with a little courage I am sure I can become an even better writer. Finally, Writing has changed from going from elementary school to college because the writing has gotten harder, because the topics have gotten more challenging and the page length as well has
I was tired of getting judged for rumors that people make up! Hardly any of the people that wanted to get closer to hardly even talked to me and when they did they only bullied me. That was not the only way that I could talk to them though! The only other way that I could think of doing to get closer to them would be to join a sports team. I thought about this for a while, but I did not know what sport to join.
I always assumed it was my personality that caused me enjoy being alone and to detest attention. I never felt as if I was a middle child until someone pointed out that it wasn’t normal to enjoy being alone. I feel like a middle child the most when I am thrown into social situations where I see parents give all of their attention to their children. Parents and children overshare their feelings and do not understand the value of personal
It was a little slow, but eventually I learned enough to be able to get through college.” James says it was extremely difficult to learn an entirely new language and culture as late in life as he was. He had to put a large amount of effort into it, but now he is able to use English in his everyday life, and when he is presented with something new, he knows exactly how to work hard to get through
As coming from the third war country, where education have less importance I went through some tough challenges after coming to The United State of America. Since English was my second language I became a handicap. I couldn’t go out much due to communication barriers, felt left out of the family where everyone is communicating in English laughing and giggling. I wanted to be part of it. I started thinking what would teach my children if I don’t know English.
I always try to pay critical attention to follow and understand what is been thought in class. Though, I could not speak or read in class, but I was performing well in the written exercises and examinations. After the first semester, then I started picking up with speech and asset but was not that much. I started taking the science class from the second semester. Some of the topics were okay to go with and some were hard and difficult.
I felt that at first, especially, no one took charge. This weakened our group a bit, we were a little behind because we did not decide on a topic on the first day. We also had to throw the class activity together in the last few days because everyone was too nervous to say what they thought would be best. When we were presenting, we all knew our individual parts, but they were not very spread out. I know that I personally spoke more than some other members of
While my bad things are that sometimes I would be late to a doctor appointment, activation, and therapy because I have to stay in class the whole hour then go change and drop my stuff off to go to my appointments. In conclusion I’m very happy with the class because it help me understand how my classes are going to be when I move up classes. I take English again next semester. I’m probably going to be pooped out from all the essays we did from this semester’s English class, but at least I know how rough it’ll
