Speaking

Yesterday we just finished the event which is organise many media. We meet 18 medias. We hope they send an article for us. But, the article is we write first and we send them. They can put out the article after the event. There are just 20 people, including 18 media. It was a private event but all of the media are famous.

The reason why I can’t attend the last class is I have to meet a foreign client. I need to transport for my boss. He is from Croatia but, he speak very slow so I can understand. I think it is useful that I can practice in a real situation. On weekend, I went to the Xian Museum. There are two parts: one is about new media, another is about paintings. I prefer paintings because I like classic arts.
