VIP Class Notes (Tibo) [S]

Speaking

When I was a child I watched a video which talking about the factory kill animals and I feel sad so that is the reason I decided to become a vegetarian. It is a little bit easy when I was a child. right now that would be more difficult because a lot of delicious food. It it beginning very early so I will not feel very difficult . My mom and dad shocked because they thought I was a mean lover so they were surprised that I decided to become a vegetarian. I loved meat before after I made this decision I still want to take a meat to eat when I watched TV and when I want to open it I didn’t realize that I am a vegetarian right now and when I open this package my mom said should you become a vegetarian why you still eat this. I had become a vegetarian.
If for now to begin a vegetarian it is harder for me.
When I start to work some of my colleagues they will be a vegetarian at some time.

to talk someone out of doing something: convince someone not to do something.
If I order some dishes with meat I will tell the waiter to put it on somebody’s else dishes.
the truth is not because meat cannot be fat. If you want to try some fried meat that will be difference but the normal meat won’t let you be fat and will let you get less rice because you won’t feel angry fast. but if you eat vegetables you will feel hungry very soon. After be a vegetarian I eat so many junk food because I feel it is a little boring just some vegetables.
my friends and my colleagues they told me you should eat some fish or seafood because they have the protein too and won’t let you feel hungry so they told me all the time when we together.

they will feel very strange and maybe you will be put aside, you are not a normal people. you are strange.
