can you live without your mobile phone?

This post is inspired by the error analysis of the diagnostic test for this week.  Tons of you attempted the question on “the phone call”.  Most of you need to understand that standard English is crucial in your descriptions and not rely on the informal phrases that you are so accustomed to.  Apart from learning the usage of English with reference to describing the usage of a mobile phone, this reminds us how the mobile phone is so much a part of our lives now.

Can you live without your mobile phone?

I am having so much fun with these this year.  This one is going into the slides for tomorrow’s 4NA cohort talk 🙂

 

this is so clever :)

Enjoy!

There wasn’t a sense of euphoria in me that day. Relief was all I felt. Looking at those numbers again and again had nothing on me. All day, I wondered why I wasn’t any more emotional than I should be.

Tonight, I saw it in clearer terms. The numbers will never really affect me more than how you all have touched my life in 2010. It is but a numerical value. But you, you and you, are the most wonderful people that I had fun teaching. You are so genuine in your learning. I will never forget the hours we spent working on the essays and practices. I will always miss the crazy jokes and uncontrollable laughter in class.

Thanks for making this journey more worthwhile than it could ever be.

I was really happy to see the alumni back for the first week of school.  Yes, I have to admit that I miss all of you.  Thank you for being a part of the Orientation Camp.  I am proud of you all!
