Subject: Saturday ;-)

 

Dear François

Thanks for your message. I’m looking forward to your visit to Dublin. I’ll come to the airport with my father to collect you on Saturday. What time does your flight arrive?

I think you’ll like Dublin. We live about 5km from the city centre but there are buses that go into the city all the time. When you’re here there are lots of things we can do. We can go to the water park at the aquatic centre and we can go cycling around Phoenix Park. If you like horror stories, we can visit Dracula’s Castle and there are lots of cinemas so we can go to watch a film too. And of course, you’ll meet all my friends and we can play football together.

You should bring a jumper and a jacket. The weather here is usually cold and rainy!

See you on Saturday.

Eoin

No, I don't often make spelling mistakes because I'm very good in spelling. If we have a class test, I don't have any spelling mistakes, but some grammar mistakes :(((

We can go to the tallest 101 building, to see all the taipei city landscapes. If you have worshiped Taoist or buddhism, it is really good to come here, because there are many temples. If you like we are going to the fo guang shan buddha museum in kaohsiung, the museum was accepted as the youngest member of the international council of museums in 2014. And we can go to the night market to enjoy taiwanese cuisine at night. See you soon! Aaron

Well, although I have learnt English for maybe 11 years, I can't say a lot of words correctly. I'm still finding some ways to fix my pronunciation just because I think it's pretty important for us to have a good pronunciaton. When I communicate with anyone, I want other people understand what I want to to talk about. Moreover, If I don't pronounce correctly, I will make they misunderstood the word which I use to talk. My friends advise me to watch Kenny N on Youtube since he makes so many videos about fixing how to spell correctly. On the other hand, I also learn the correct pronunciation when I watch something on Youtube or movies. I know there're lot of words which I can't speak correctly eventhough I try so hard. I will try harder to have a good pronunciation instead of doing nothing right now.

Unfortunately, I often make mistakes in English. I just learn and try to improve my English skills every day. I'd like to share one's good advice: Learn English every day for 30 minutes, not more, not less. You will see the progress!
