While I was still inexperienced and innocent at that time, and probably didn’t understand the effects nor the definition of bullying; looking back, I feel like it was unfortunate for me to have experienced this social phenomenon at such a young age, yet, still feel somewhat fortunate to have had the experience of fighting against what is morally wrong and standing up for yourself. In a more recent context, I unfortunately encountered a similar social situation: racial and ethnic
The documentary instantly starts off with the thoughts from the family members of the four students on why people should know more than one language. Right after these clips, an opponent is saying how if you do not learn how to read, write, and speak in English properly, an individual will not be able to go to college or get a job which is not good for our society. However, Farr (2001) argues that people who are not “proficient” in English are still able to be successful in English-oriented jobs. They are able to cope if they have any difficulties with the literacy demands. Another perspective for the “English-Only” argument was made from a family member of one of the students.
Is it not the same with majority of us? We find a place where we feel we fit in. We tend to flock to certain group that like or share common things then afterwards we will think we can flourish so we stay, join and before we know we are already
Prior to my travels, I lived in a small town that spoke only one language, Tagalog. Naturally, I learned how to speak the language by listening to my family talk and the language came naturally to me. Due to the prevalence of the language, I learned how to speak and write Tagalog and no other language. After all, learning another language was most likely useless in a homogenous community of Tagalog speakers. This mindset prevailed until after my fifth birthday when I found out that my family was moving to a Middle Eastern country called the
Yuu is a native of Japan, more specifically, Tokyo. At 20 years old, this is his second time studying abroad, however, his first time at Lindsey Wilson College and his first in the U.S. Yuu is set for one whole year at Lindsey. After this time, he will return home. A bilingual speaker, with fluency both in Japanese and English, he claims to know a little Chinese and a little Malay (the national language of Malaysia). Though Yuu didn’t know anything about Christianity before Lindsey, he notes that through on-campus interactions and in-class studies his perspective on religion has changed.
There are many people around the world that experience cultural shock. Cultural Shock is when someone is introduced to new and unfamiliar ideas and ways of living life. It can get really uncomfortable for a person who has no idea what to do and how to adapt to that society, especially if somebody is gonna be living there for quite a while. That was I experienced when I moved to Pakistan for six years of my childhood from 2007 to 2013. I really did not know what was going on when I first got there and wanted to come back to America during the first year.
“In India our schools are k-10, and we have three levels of Kindergarten, so we are essentially at a school for 13 years. We had to wear uniforms and here, the students rotate classes, but in India the teachers come to your classes so you don’t have to. Another aspect is you don’t have much choice when it comes to your classes. For example, in the fifth grade, it’s divided into two classes. Then each class is a certain number of people and that class has the same schedule.
Choice, diversity, and feelings could change the Giver community and make it a more positive place. Choice would make the Giver community more positive. One detail that supports this answer on page 94, “That was before we went to sameness. Flesh is all the same.” This detail shows choice is needed because if you don’t choose what you want you can’t create personality and you fall into sameness.
AUTOBIOGRAPHY ABOUT FRANCHESCA FELICIANO "You 're so strange" -said everyone who has encountered me so far in this school year. Others might say it 's due to the "harsh" enirvonment of an adolescent 's life or its simply "just a phase". But I see myself as any other person but with a different taste for life. I typically don 't always enjoy rap or what 's going around in music nor do I watch the latest episode of teen wolf.
After my own struggle with learning English, I now help my parents out by acting as their translator, which includes going to doctor 's appointment and school conferences. As their daughter, I wanted my parents to gain more independence in doing daily tasks, such as having a basic conversation with another
When internees found out that they were free, you would expect that they would be happy and joyful, but they weren’t. Once they got back into their homes, and were free, there was still hatred shown toward them. They didn’t get paid in the camps, they had no insurance; and once they got back into their homes, they found broken windows, empty living rooms, and lost memories. But for some, they don’t want to live in a life of depression. They had just spent several years in the camps, and had the rest of their lives to spend.
Perhaps it’s partly because of misinformation that has been believed for many years or that Asian-Americans “make few political demands and keep their heads down” (Bronner, 2012). Some Asian-Americans believe their parents taught them they must honor their family name and find ways to make the grades instead of causing trouble (Bronner, 2012). I do believe that Asian-Americans usually have higher values because in 18 years as a police officer I have only arrested one Asian-American and that was for DUI. It is true that many Asian-Americans are in the technical fields, but hardly any are in top management jobs and many more occupy service jobs (Williams, 2015). This model minority image of Asian-Americans has caused some problems with other minorities, but the problem is that experimental research has been done to look at the ramifications (Chao et al, 2013).
