Speaking exercise

Describe an important decision that you have made

My life has changed a lot because I made a important decision me and my boyfriend. We decided to break up because I think we need some personal time to make us better. We were too busy in work so we didn’t have much time to talk to each other, we always argue about something, it made me feel unhappy. I think being alone is good for two of us. I believed I made a right decision.

At first, I was affected a lot, because I’m afraid of living alone, but after some days, I feel better, I have more time to do what I want to do. I know more about myself, so I won’t regret.

How did you choose your job?

I found my job online. I took almost two months to find it. It’s not easy to find a job in this year because of the virus. At first I want to change a job because I don’t want to be a copywriter anymore. It’s hard to write articles everyday. There’s always OT job. I want to be a trainer in the future, but the company won’t let me do it if I don’t have experiences. So I will practice myself at first.

Writing exercise

2020 is really not a good year. The corona virus in the world makes everyone feel bad, many people start to review themselves of body health, the relationship with family members and the planing of life.

I’ve thought about my entire life too. For my family, my mom,my sister and I, we three have stayed in three cities which are far away from each other. This is the situation I don’t like, so I’m thinking that I should do something to make us closer. For example, to visit them more times instead of going back home one time a year. I am so into the feeling of being together with the people I love, so I will accomplish my plan for sure.

For myself, I want to initiate a different new life. I didn’t really have a plan of my life before. However, when I talked a lot with my bestie recently, an exemplary independent girl, I want to re-define myself. I use to be timid and I don’t think I can do something great in work or life, but now I want to try many new things while her thoughts intrude my mind. Maybe the first thing I should do is to make some bucket list.

Revised

2020 is not really a good year. The coronavirus has a negative influence on everyone, many people start to be more concerned of their health, the relationship with family members and future plans of life.

I’ve thought about my past too. For my family, my mom,my sister and I, we three are living in three cities which are far away from each other. I don’t like the distances, so I’m thinking that I should do something to make us closer to one another. For example, I could visit them more times instead of going back home just once a year. I am so into the feeling of being together with the people I love (homesick) , so I will accomplish my goal for sure.

As for myself, I want to initiate a different new life. I didn’t really have a plan for my life before. However, when I talked a lot with my bestie recently, an exemplary independent girl, I want to re-define myself. I use to be timid and I didn’t think I could do something great in work or life, but now I want to try many new things since her thoughts have intruded my mind (she has brainwashed me). Maybe the first thing I should do is to make a bucket list.
