New Year's resolution
I noticed in your debates last week and this week that there are two types of pairs: those students who are very well prepared and those who didn't prepare enough for their debates.
When you have presentations in Oral English 2 next year, it's important to speak loudly. This shows that you are confident in your opinion. Also, you need to make eye contact with both the audience and your group. You have to practice both the content of your presentation, and how you will present (e.g. body language and voice inflection). If you don't practice your content enough before the lesson, it will be difficult to focus on your body language because you need to use your notes too often.
Blog Question #10:
In today's speed discussion, we learned the expression "New Year's resolution."
What are two resolutions that you have this year? Why do you have them?
* Write 12-15 sentences.
* Use capital letters, punctuation and spelling correctly.
* Submit by Monday, January 18 by 6:00pm.

My resolutions of 2016 are to learn something new everyday and to do it consistently, despite knowing most people give up on resolutions within weeks of setting them. This is because I know that whether I take a course or study by myself, I am sure that I will find education to be one of the easiest, most motivating New Year's resolutions to keep. When I entered University, I felt like my soul telling me that I reached something perfect. Then I gradually forgot to pursue my real goal. I completely forgot that entering University is just the step that I can find and study what I really want to do in my future. The moment I finally realized that passionate was my second summer of University. My mother led me to the right place again and I could see myself from every aspect. Four months have passed then, I organized my resolutions well. And that is as I said, Learning something new everyday and do it consistently. It means that I want to be passionate about education and my future. I almost know what my study is so I have no choice but to try my best. And most important point is that I won't be lazy again.
