Homework

Use the past tense to tell us about your time in high school

Speaking

My major in university is digital art and television art. I think the life in the university is more happy than in the high school because the life is more freedom. You can choose the lesson what you like but in the high school you have to study the subjects that you don’t good at. The first year in the university I started to learn painting. But it’s not a normal painting, just draw something on the computer. And the second year we chose our major and then I started to study the television art. We had some lessons about edit videos. We made the videos by ourselves. I think the daily life is a little bit difficult because the building in the university is very poor and old. We don’t have a bathroom in the dormitory. If you want to have a shower we need to go very far away to carry some hot water and then climb about 5 floors so we could find the bathroom. Every floor has only one bathroom. But the major is very interesting because if you do the works about art you don’t have to find the only result. Whatever you paint the professor will say it’s okay.

We made the videos by ourselves. I think the daily life was a little bit difficult because the building in the university was very rundown and old. We didn’t have a bathroom in the dormitory. If you wanted to have a shower you needed to go very far away to carry some hot water and then climb about 5 floors so you could find the bathroom. Every floor had only one bathroom. But the major was very interesting because if you studied art, then you didn’t have to achieve any standard result. Whatever you painted the professor would say it’s okay.
