Oral English 1: Lesson 3
We started our opinion presentations today. I was really impressed with today's group leaders and your preparation!
At the beginning of our lesson, we had some discussion activities to review conversational style. When we have a discussion remember these points:
a. volunteer your opinions and comments
b. don't wait to give your opinion
c. agree or disagree with speakers
d. ask questions
e. give your personal experience as examples
We also reviewed how to lead a discussion. At the beginning of your discussion, remember to introduce the topic (e.g. Today, I'm going to talk about...)
Please learn the expressions for checking understanding, summarising and concluding your discussion. In this way, you won't need this worksheet when you give your opinion presentation.
I have uploaded the slide presentation from our lesson in the Discussion Skills Lesson Materials section of the website.
(Today's group leaders don't have to do homework #3 and #5).
Blog Question #3:
Answer the question. Use an opinion giving expression, and give a reason and TWO examples to support your opinion.

I think most amounts of money to save if I obtain 100,000 yen. Because 100,000 yen is enough large sum of money for a student like me, the reason is because I think that I use it as soon as I had by holdings. For example, various things which I want get into eyes even if I walk the town. I can endure the temptation if I have no money to spare, but will buy it if money is enough. I think that the money disappears immediately when I repeat it. In addition, another reason is to save and can manage the money. When money was necessary, I go to the bank every time and can draw it as much as it is necessary. I prevent it from spending money excessively. And it is important to return the money that remained without using it for the money that I drew to the bank. If it does not do so it, this is because it spends the money that remained. It may be trouble to go to the bank every time. However, I think that you must manage it well because the money is a thing disappearing immediately.

First, I can’t have a chance and money to visit to foreign country, so I can’t learn a new finding. However I have the money that can use freely. Accordingly, I use it not household goods but something special. I like to travel, and I would feel rich mood and happy. I also got satisfaction by playing with the money abroad. By using that buy clothes, foods and special product. I consider that I may get an interesting idea from vacation. If I live by increasing the money little by little every day, I think it would corrupt when the money have gone. Second, I can do good experience that go to abroad. I want to see foreign culture, cities and take a communication with local people. Though I am not good at speaking English, I want to try my weak point.

In my opinion,If I have 100000yen, I buy a new fin. There are two reasons. First reason is that I want to swim faster than ever. Second reason is that a fin is too expensive to buy new one. I cannot spend money to only fin because I spend to the games and training camp. But I want to new one until the next year of Japan Championship. Fin is made in foreign country and it is made of a made-to-order,so it is expensive. Many of those are made by Ukraine craftsman. Taking into concideration to carriage, It cost about 100000yen. I want to have japanese craftsman make it. By doing so, I can reduce time. Further I can save money. More than anything, I can order accurately. Therefore I buy a new fin if I go in 100000yen.

So banking money is keeping our future health. I'm not good at banking money. so I have to banking more seriously than now. Of cause money is not all. However it is inevitable while we live in society.

I want to go for a trip if I pick up 100,000 yen.
10/18/2015 11:38:41 pm
When 100000 yen are understood in my opinion, I shop. I'd like to save money, but it isn't possible. A college student never has enough money. And I'm living alone. A meal doesn't have enough money and becomes shabby. I'd like to buy a lot of vegetables and fruit. It fills neither, so it can't be bought so much. When having 100000 yen, it's divisible into whether they're some months, and I'd make it the charge of board. But the overuse of money isn't good. I think I have to manage money and use it tightly. We live in money a parent did and got. The college student who isn't in trouble about the charge of board should thank.
