偶然
我是天空里的一片云,
偶尔投影在你的波心——
你不必讶异,
更无须欢喜——
在转瞬间消灭了踪影。
你我相逢在黑夜的海上,
你有你的,我有我的,方向;
你记得也好,
最好你忘掉,
在这交会时互放的光亮! 

By chance
I am a cloud in the sky,
Occasionally project in your wave heart —
You shouldn’t be surprised.
And no need to rejoice
Wiped out the trace in a flash.
I met thee in the sea of the night,
You have your, I have my, direction;
If you remember,
Better you forget,
In this intersection of light!

 “Although her intentions were good, for Jairo, speaking Spanish was an incredibly important aspect of his Mexican American identity; it was his truth. Not only would Spanish connect him to his family’s heritage, but it would also provide him access to the broader community. His family’s church, for instance, had many elders who spoke only Spanish. Despite his claim that he didn’t “know a lot [of Spanish],” in the same conversation, Jairo stated, “But I’m learning.”

Language identifies who you are as a person and where you come from. It’a very powerful and strong word that can evoke people’s resonance. Language is a tool for human beings to communicate with each other, express massive information about everything and pass on culture. There are more than 5,000 languages spoken by human beings, and there are over 2,000 written languages. The vast majority of human characters are phonetic characters — -using a few letters to express sounds directly, such as English, western, Indian, Russian, Korean, Thai, etc. Very few are ideographic phonetic literatures-hieroglyphic characters used to represent meanings, and phonetic symbols used to represent sounds, such as Chinese characters

A dramatic photograph of a local firefighter who rescued a teenager from raging floodwaters. The image is so powerful and shocking that he saved a girl from floodwaters. In the picture, you can clearly see he tried his best to save the girl’s life by leaning against a heavy tree trunk. Even though the task is difficult and dangerous, he still takes a heavy responsibility to save the girl as much as he can. Because if he doesn’t do properly, he even can die from raging floodwaters. How an image is so appealing to make the readers feel touched and moved. It’s very emotional (pathos). The picture was taken in 1997 and won the Spot News Photography.

A guy named wang, sky traveled to different countries and learned English through his life. When he attended high school in New York, he realized that his English was not as good as the native speaker. But at least he tried to get it well. He would never give up learning English. Although his native language was not English, he liked how Enligsh composed. Everyone is bound to experience some setbacks in their growth. What we can do is to try our best to overcome these difficulties and open up a luminous path for ourselves.

   If I have problems with communicating with people in English, I will practice my English skill and pronunciation at home again and again until I think I am confident enough to talk with others. I will listen to English radio in the car, watching the news in the TV, and watching English drama in order to try to imitate their pronunciation as much as possible by looking at the way their mouth movement. In brief, I really appreciate my parents that give me the opportunity to come to the U.S to study and feel lucky about myself and thankful to all my teachers and classmates whoever helped me when I run into obstacles.

It takes few hours just to do it, and also we need to record our voices and put them online. Everything can be easy, but also complicated because too many steps and process are being taken. The main expectations of this assignment is to build up our adore spark skill and spread out our knowledge in different areas. This assignment is a diversification tool that we are going to use different kinds of elements to utilize it. It’s quite interesting and a useful tool.

When I was a child, perhaps my personality is outgoing, everyone likes to tease me and make fun of me, one time I was mad or impatient, I hit the person’s glass and broke it to the floor. The neighbour saw it and was all laughing together. By that time, I am only three years old, I don’t know anything, I only know that he teased me so I should fight back. That’s really an unforgettable memory or experience in my life that I will never forget it about it. Every time when I recall back, it’s really funny and humorous. Nowadays I become more mature and definitely I won’t do this childish behavior anymore.
