Speaking

When I go back home, maybe I just eat and sleep and watch TV. I definitely celebrate CNY just by eating.

I love going to beach in summer. I will be thinner in summer. When I arrive in Chengdu, I will stay there for two days. I have to take train from Chengdu to my hometown, it will spend 30 minutes. I almost just have one time for go back to my hometown. But, actually a few days before, I asked my father come back to SH for CNY, but he refused. He thinks we must be in hometown for CNY because CNY is special. I’ve already ready now.

Every year I wrote the NY’s resolutions in my book, when I fly to CD, I will write 10 things in my book. But, I find I finish only 4 or 5. Maybe I will wrote 3 things for 2020. Mostly I want to do something new, but I don’t finish.The biggest resolution for last year is learning English and I finished it. But, for 2020 the NY’s resolutions, I have no idea yet, maybe I will write it on the plane.

Revised: 

Maybe I will just eat, sleep and watch TV when I go back home. I would definitely celebrate CNY eating many kinds of delicious foods.

I love going to the beach in summer. I am usually thinner in summer. When I arrive in Chengdu, I will be staying there for two days. Then, I have to take train from Chengdu to my hometown and it will take approximately 30 minutes. I only have one change to go back to my hometown every year. But, actually a few days earlier, I asked my father if I could come back to SH early during CNY, but he refused. He thinks we must spend time at our hometown for CNY because it is special. I’m already prepared now.

Every year I listed/wrote down the NY’s resolutions in my book. When I flew to CD, I wrote 10 things in my book. But, I found that I could only finish/complete 4 to 5 tasks. Maybe I will write 3 things for 2020. Usually, I want to do/try something new, but I don’t stick to it. The biggest resolution for last year is learning English and I finished/completed it. However, for the 2020 NY’s resolutions, I have no idea yet/not thought about it yet, maybe I will write it down on the plane.
