In English class, I've learnt the meaning of writing a well-written piece. In a well-written piece, you have to add description, emotion, personal thoughts. You have to show, not tell. At first, I didn't understand what that meant. Show, tell? You can only show someone by showing them the literal thing. But after 5 weeks of school, I now understand how to show using words.

I find the table discussions very useful. I like the way we don't raise our hands, it gives me a feeling that we're not at school. I think it's a great way to get our ideas across, and tell people what you really are feeling. Of course, it's going to take a little time getting used to, and some people will have to challenge themselves to speak up. 

One thing I would like to change about English class is the speed. I think we are given too much time to work on one thing. I feel that every lesson, we are still working on that same thing that we worked on last week, therefore sometimes I am not looking forward to class. We are going a bit slowly in terms of our learning, so I hope that we will work a little faster in our lessons to come.
