My experiences with English
Nowadays English is a very important language, it is recognized as a universal language. It gives you opportunities to travel around the world, to know about other cultures or getting started a scholarship to study abroad. This is some of the advantages of learning English. You use it all the time, when you come out of the borders.
I could summarize my experience I 3 stages: Vacations (childhood), my school time and now the time in the gymnasium, and in the future, there will probably be a lot more, at the university and so on.
When I was a child, I wondered why I couldn’t communicate with people from other countries. Why couldn’t I just speak Danish to them? But my parents told me, that every country speaks their own language, but most countries also could speak English as a second language. I started to find it interesting to say something in English, and I started to order my own food, when we were at restaurants. I learned saying my own name, count to 10 and the foundation of my English was built.
But the first time my teacher introduced me for English, it was not my favorite subject. I was not interested in learning English, because I started finding it very difficult than I thought it was when I was younger. There were so many rules. I was a child with a lot of energy, so I had a lot of trouble being concentrated, so I didn’t focused that much on English.
We have to study English during our school time, and the education strategy at my old school (FPR) was very good. But first in the 8 grade, I started finding English exciting. We changed teacher, and she gave me the courage to dare to say more, and she gave me confident in English.
In the beginning of the 8 grade I was in England, where I tried and survived, how an English school day was. I found out that my English skills weren’t that bad, as I thought they were. I could…...

An Experience

...English 101 Lincoln’s Challenge Everyone has certain moments in their lives that have a lasting impression. Some people get a new job, meet fascinating new people, or get married. The experience that made an impression, even changed my life was going to Lincoln’s Challenge Academy. This academy was one of many big changes in my life. The benefits of this academy will help me through the difficult trials of life that I will face in the years to come. Lincoln’s Challenge was a place for “troubled” teens to obtain a GED and get discipline. It was a military-based school in Rantoul, Illinois. Young adults from the ages of sixteen to eighteen would come there, voluntarily, to change their mischievous behavior. Last year I dropped out of MacArthur High School and enrolled in the academy. I was a junior when I left the high school, and I was truly scared out of my wits. What I had heard about Lincoln’s Challenge Academy, or LCA, were not too pleasant. I knew my past wasn’t the best, but from what I had heard from a few friends the other teens that were going to attend were going to be much worse. When I arrived at LCA in January, I was absolutely terrified. I didn’t want to leave the comfort of my home, parents, friends, or especially my bed! What made matters worse was that I would have to gone for six months without my phone! However, the promise of two three-day breaks in March and April and family visits every Sunday made the knot in my stomach shrink a little bit. When......

...Running head: OR EXPERIENCE Observational Experience in the Operating Room and Post Anesthesia Care Unit Bothayna Bader LaGuardia Community College Professor Rosenberg SCR 210 March 19th, 2013 Preoperative Phase The preoperative phase is the time period between the decision to have surgery and the beginning of the surgical procedure. For some patients, the preoperative period may last for months, during which testing and other procedures may be done. For an emergency, such as an appendectomy, the preoperative period may last only a few hours. During the preoperative phase, preadmission testing is done to assess health history, family medical history, and any known allergies to medications. During which time explanation of the surgical procedure and patient education is taking place. Patient education advises the patient on pre-surgical preparation such as bowel preparation, nutritional and fluid intake the day before the procedure and when to stop eating, and how to proceed with medication therapy the day before surgery. Diagnostic testing includes ECG monitoring, blood testing and vital signs. The trauma of surgery can greatly be relieved by psychological preparation of the patient before surgery, so during preadmission testing psychological evaluation is also taking place to assess the patient for any fears or anxiety related to the surgical procedure. The nurse should discuss techniques to aid physical recovery and ways to lessen the pain and anxiety......

...lifestyle etc. As it is very important to know or speak the language of the place where we live. However, my second language –English is the most the most difficult to learn in a short period of time. The learning second language is much interesting and challenging, and also make more experience if we have good group discussion and talk with the teacher about own experience and problems. I moved to an environment that was totally different from the one I came from. I knew that this would be my biggest hurdle I would have to overcome. I sat in back of the class room and felt shy to speak with friends and teacher because I can’t frame a good sentence to express my problem. But teacher help me in each and every step of my problems that I faced. In middle of the semester, I understand more English and I started asking question regarding my problems to my teacher; the problems were solve in clear and effective way and I handle easily. I came to know while I learn English everything will be possible and easy if we keep on working with full of interest. In my experience one of the best ways to learning is writing in blog and read loudly. I am not really good writer and reader because I speak and think in Nepali. When I have a problem I talk and discuss with friends and teacher to know the correct answer and when I know the answer I keep on working on it for my experience in future. In addition, Group discussion became good source to learn lots of different idea to express the......

The Experience

...The Experience Your arrival to the residence starts with you examining a house that is physically well-kept. A beige house with tan shutters, and landscaping throughout the yard that is reminiscent of a magazine cover. The sound of a bird’s chirping, and bumblebees buzzing in the summertime, makes you feel warm. You walk up to our home feeling a sense of welcoming. When you finally walk into our house, the experience begins. The captivating smell transports you into another dimension. My mother loves to cook, and the aroma of spices and vegetables simmering in a pot leaves a strong impression throughout the home. The sound of a cook hard at work distracts you with clanging, chopping, and shaking of her tools. The warmth of the air with these sweet aromatic smells makes you feel invited and happy to be there. Upon entering you will also meet our dogs. They are very pleased to greet you, but all guests must first be approved by man’s best friend. Their submissiveness is very playful, and it is always customary to give a scratch or pat on their head. Both dogs wag their tails in excitement and with their tongue hanging out of their mouth they pant from the affection. The house is bright and airy with photographs of memories hanging about the walls. Strategically placed, every picture has a purpose in its occupied space. Mirrors enlarge the room, thereby giving the illusion the room is quite spacious. The softness of the chairs makes you feel right at home when you......

...IIMA FDP Alumni Conference - Ethics & CSR 20-21 December 2013 It was a tremendous experience as well as a proud feeling to be a part of IIM-A FDP Alumni Conference, like “A sea meeting to a river” The fog was being cleared by many highly learned and extremely experience personalities during these two days with their innovative approach which I felt glad to be present with them. Especially the words spoken by Padmashree K. Ramkrishna Rao sir were very touching. The way he tried to explain the complex topics, briefly with a common way that was really phenomenal. I learned about human values and their basic responsibility towards society with the help of gandian studies or believe we can say. I think that human values plays a significant role in ethics. The informative words shared by prof. G.Subramanyam sir on how the ethics and social responsibility simultaneously determine the organization image as well as affects the industry .which was really a learning experience especially what things are happen around us we must be aware of that like how “SATYAM” has almost destroyed its image because of unethical practices done by them which even badly affected the software industry.  Challenges in managing non-profit and social enterprises: Chair: primal sir and The panel was shared by ravi sir and rani man. Really it’s a challenging job to run a non-profit or a social enterprise. What I felt out of discussion is that running a social enterprise is even difficulty job compared to NGOs...

A number of them died on the battlefield, most famously Edward Thomas,Isaac Rosenberg, Wilfred Owen, and Charles Sorley. Others including Robert Graves,[4] Ivor Gurney and Siegfried Sassoon survived but were scarred by their experiences, and this was reflected in their poetry. Robert H. Ross[5] characterised the English "war poets" as a subgroup of the Georgian Poetry writers. Many poems by British war poets were published in newspapers and then collected into anthologies. Several of these early anthologies were published during the war and were very popular, though the tone of the poetry changed as the war progressed. One of the wartime anthologies was The Muse in Arms, published in 1917. Several anthologies were also published in the years after the war had ended. In November 1985, a slate memorial was unveiled in Poet's Corner commemorating 16 poets of the......

...Valuing Life 10/3/2012 By: Lisa Graham-Jones Instructor: Professor Wright Or Life is precious and shaped by many different experiences along the way. What if you were unable to experience this thing we call life? If the hands could turn back time and your mother decided not to let you live, but instead destroy your life before being able to experience the world we know of today? Many bypass this thought process when considering abortion. Women instead think of themselves and their situation when debating the option of abortion. Life is valuable period. Regardless of whether there are good outcomes of abortion, or negative outcomes of abortion, I am against abortion. Regardless of what is going on in life, women know that the only way to not get pregnant is through the choice of abstinence, but they still choose to have sex. With this being a problem it makes abortion look really evil due to careless and selfish choices that women are making today. Abortion has been overthrown and battled in many courts with different cases and the procedure of abortion has granted because the right of the constitution protects the choices that women make with the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendment. The constitution protects the rights of women in many different ways including the choice of what women want to do with their bodies. These three amendments make abortion legal and create a bigger problem of diminishing this evil operation for the fact that abortion has been approved by......

...10 Tips for speaking English 1. The first thing I would do after getting up every morning was to read the newspaper, front to back. It doesn’t matter which newspaper you subscribe to, as long as it is a major English-language paper, such as The Hindu, The Times of India, Hindustan Times, The Indian Express, etc. While different people have different opinions on the quality of each paper, they are all more or less equally useful in getting to learn the language. It is also not necessary to read every page and article; it is time-consuming and, sometimes, boring. However, you should most definitely look for articles that interest you. 2. I bought a pocket dictionary. They are cheap, compact and useful. There were many words I came across on a day-to-day basis that I did not know, and carrying a pocket dictionary everywhere allowed me to look up these words immediately so that the matter would not slip off my mind later. 3. Once learned, I also made a conscious effort to use the words in conversation. This instilled the words in my head and I was able to draw on them whenever required. 4. I convinced some of my friends to come together and form something of a ‘study group’; we were all interested in learning English, and I figured it would make it easier and more fun for us to do it together. We met twice a week in the evening and discussed the words and phrases we had come across, suggested articles, magazines, and books to each other, etc. 5. Another thing my group of......

...Experience Paper A visit to the Cloisters Museum The Creative Voice Experience. Practical contact. Observation of facts. We live in a “soft” world where the greater percentage of the arts are viewed through some type of electronic device with a screen and usually muddled with banners of advertisements or endorsements. We view static images on screens where texture and brush strokes could never be appreciated. We watch videos of classic Shakespearian plays devoid of the elements and senses of a live performance. True experience cannot be had remotely. Experience MUST be experienced! I decided to visit the Cloisters Museum and Gardens to reach outside my comfort zone and visit a place that I not only have never been to, but had also never heard of. The Cloisters is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art that focuses on the art and architecture of medieval Europe. The museum is located in northern Manhattan and overlooks the Hudson River. That particular day was fairly warm with light rain. Upon entry into the museum my initial reaction was how cold and damp it was in comparison to the day. Because I had not been there before, I was initially most impressed with the structure more than the art itself. It is clear that people have gone to great lengths to recreate a structure that incorporates all of the elements of medieval times. I am by no means a historian and as a result I am usually stricken by something that appeals to me visually over its historical......

...do this alone. It can plan and give guidelines, and the least an individual can do is cooperate with the government and be responsible.” Baguio is mostly made up of a young population – dynamic and flexible – so the hope for a better city is kept alive. Residents (locals and migrants alike) should be more conscientious given the city’s state. Since this is the situation now, people might as well work on what is on hand rather than just sit and bewail the city’s gradual decay. Progress and increase in population is okay as long as the people also take into consideration the welfare of the place they live in, for it is also them who will reap whatever their actions’ outcomes are Conclusion: Strengthen the Baguio city and Burnham Park experience with the future development plan for Burnham Park and continue to take strategic tourism growth for other tourist destination of Baguio city....

Reflecting on My Experiences with English and Writing!

...Growing up, I had always enjoyed reading and writing. English had never been a problem for me so much as math had been. I had a love for literature. I've always loved reading books. You'd have to pull me away just so I'd put one down. So you can imagine when my fourth grade teacher Ms. Lux said, “you possibly could be held back another year, because you're not performing well in English.” My heart had dropped within that moment. I felt as if I were a failure. I felt as if I, me, someone who had a love for English, was not good enough. I could not understand. I felt rejected. How could I, someone who had enjoyed reading so much, be told that I may not be going to the fifth grade, because of my English scores? I felt in every ounce of my bones that that accusation could not have been right. It was preposterous. She put me through a series of English tests. Testing my abilities from comprehension to grammar, I felt that that this was unfair. I felt that she was singling me out. For what reason I have no clue to this day. Now I had always been a well-behaved kid. I never got into much trouble during my youth years. From the moment I entered her classroom, I felt as If she had a personal vendetta against me. Why was this happening to me? I cried myself into one of the greatest stories I had ever read. It was of the most intriguing adventurous stories ever.

...“My Unforgettable Experience in English” As we all know, lessons, experiences, encounters, and conversations in English are not always confined to the corners of the classroom. We take our knowledge-hungry English-conversing brains out and interact with the world with it. As usual, people try to fit in, and since vernacular is all the rage nowadays, they usually end up speaking Bisaya. One such case involves my classmate and friend, Arman James Kho, where he himself tries to incorporate his Bisayan vocabulary into everyday sentences, sentences such as, “MA’AM TESS! *insert name* IS A BAYOT!”, or who can forget the uncountable times when people make fun of each other with the use of English, implying only the “Caterpillar” kids use English, while the “Butterfly” kids use Bisaya. Now let me just stray off the subject of English experiences, but seriously, teasing or treating people differently is NOT a good thing to do. I can attest to the fact that people usually do this to others, since I have been a victim countless of times. This is quite unforgettable for me. However, my experience with the teachers isn’t as negative or grim. The teachers accept me with my English handicap (especially Ma’am Tess, may God bless you), although I sometimes may need to dumb down my sentences, for their sake. Usually, though, we communicate through a wonderful set of vocabulary-words, since each list of vocabulary-words for each teacher really depends on his/her subject. And that has been...

I learned how to communicate and understand well what is customer service specially in food and beverage department. I have many chances of applying all I've learn in my alma matter, Bulacan State University. I became more responsible about regulations and follow every standard they have. I reminded my self that I'm not here to be lazy, but I'm here to prove my self I have an edge in this industry. I have realized that being punctual is more important than being industrious. For showing that you have that eagerness in the job your in, is being like you owned it. I have been a food attendant in both Hotels I've been into, The CAVA Bar and Restaurant and The Escolta. Waking up early is just so hard to do, changing schedules from am shift to pm shift too. I learned to boost my confidence and pay attention to attend guest needs. For they are the reason why a hotel is operating. your experiences with the people you worked with. In the beginning, working with people you have just first met is something different and something that is hard inside. Hard inside that you can't say anything or do anything that you are usually saying cause the near fact the you might offend them or they may think your rude. On my experience I have became an observant and a listener to the people I worked with. As days goes on, friendship and understanding with each other is built. I have worked......
