VIP Class Notes (Ally) [S]

Speaking

My name is Laura and I work in a logistic company. It’s a Taiwan company and I work as an administrator.

I went to South Korea to see a concert. They had for three days, and I saw the second one and the third one. And also I really regret why I didn’t see the first one. Both of them were very different, the songs are the same, their comments were different. The first one I sit on the second floor, and the second one I saw them closer. The main purpose.. I stayed there for twelve days… The other days I stayed with my mother.

I like to buy cosmetic products. I’ve been to Korea many times because my mother lives there.
