Christmas makes me happy. Because it is a national holiday. When I was in elementary school, I spent Christmas with my family. When I was in middle school, I spent Christmas with my girlfriend. I ate dinner with my girlfriend and watched a movie. When I was in high school, I went to institute at Christmas. Christmas was depressed. Since I was young at home, I only received a present. I received various gifts such as shoes and jumper. When I was in elementary school and middle school, I always eat out for Christmas. I went to a hotel buffet or a famous restaurant. When I was in high school, I went to institute so I couldn’t eat with my family during Christmas holiday. Except for me, my family went out to eat. This is the first Christmas in 20 years. I want to spend Christmas with my girlfriend. Sadly, I still have no girlfriend. My friends say that they will spend Christmas with their girlfriends at Christmas. I envy my friends who spend Christmas with their girlfriend. I try to spend Christmas with my girlfriend, but it is not easy. This year, maybe I will spend Christmas with my family.
Thank you for teaching us during semester.
I learned Korean when I was 5 years old. I learned Korean from my mother. I learned English when I was 10 years old. I learned English from my eldest sister. I first went to English academy when I was 10 years old. Although I did not learn English in elementary school, I studied English when I was elementary school students. At first, it was hard to learn English. Especially, listening and grammar were very difficult. Nonetheless, I enjoyed learning English. I studied really hard to improve my grammar. I learned the grammar from my eldest sister. I memorized 100 words everyday. When I meet foreigners outside, I speak first. Even though I speak to foreigners, I don’t hesitate to answer them. I think speaking English improved through the university English class. I also gained confidence to speak. I want to study abroad for my dream. I want to study English harder and visit abroad to communicate with many foreigners. I want to work for a foreign company. And I want to learn Spanish. Because it is the most popular language all over the world.
I took a trip to Busan with my friends during MVP week . I went to Busan by KTX which is a high – speed train. We first went to Haeundae which is a beach. We took pictures together and walked along the beach. We went Busan’s Gukje Market for lunch. We ate stir-fried Rice Cake, fish cake, Spicy Glass Noodles, dumpling, steak. We had hotteok and juice for dessert. After lunch, we went to an aquarium. And we ate Raw fish for dinner in Jagalchi Market. We went to Haeundae again. We enjoyed fireworks and ate chicken. We went to Korean dry sauna to sleep. Next day, we went to Taejongdae Park. We took pictures together and did fishing. And we went to Haedong Yonggungsa Temple. We ate fish stew for dinner in Gwangalli. After dinner, we went to Haeundae Beach 101 deobei to see the nigh view. On the last day, we slept in a hotel. I was so happy to sleep in the hotel. The next morning, we ate Pork and Rice Soup. After eating breakfast, we came back home. It was unforgettable trip.
I sometimes use digital camera, and GPS when I travel. I usually use laptop to do assignment in university. I always use smartphone and headset. GPS helps me find a destination. Laptop helps me find various information and enjoy entertainment program – youtube, game and so on. I think smartphone is the best invention. Smartphone helps me find various information and enjoy entertainment program – facebook, kakao talk, youtube and so on. Also smartphone has GPS function. I got a smartphone when I was third grade in middle school. I tried to get a smartphone. My parants said ” If you want to get a smartphone, you get great score.” I studied hard so I got great score. I got a Laptop when I was freshman in university. I needed laptop to do assignment. So I worked a part-time to buy a laptop. I got a headset when I was elementary school student. I saved money to buy a headset. If I don’t have a laptop, I can’t do assignment. If I don’t have a smartphone, I am anxious. If I don’t have a headset, I can’t listening to music.
