Fall in love with this song

You know. I got to post this message right here, believe me.
I was working on some stuff for one of my classes, which is a listening-and-writing training class, where students would first watch a shot video in English in a normal speed. And then I will lead them to understanding all the lines in the lyrics.
For tomorrow's class, I just "Randomly" picked up a song "Sugar" on Youtube the other day, and this song was sung by a music group called "Maroon 5".
Maroon 5? My first feeling about it is "What the heck is the group?" I have never heard about it before, for I haven't actually been in touch with English pop songs for a long while.
However, as I kept preparing the handout by having to listen and listen to the songs many times, I just found I had begun to love this song already. Eventually I just couldn't help but fall in love with this song. This is just such an amazing song that everyone should love it. I believe my students will tomorrow.
By the way, actually I was told how popular "Maroon 5" is in the world now. Thanks for the song, Maroon 5. I will keep an eye on you guys now. Won't miss out on any of your musical works.

New Job

What a busy week I have had. My teaching at university has already got off the ground. Everything seems to be getting off on the right foot tough only a bit of unfamiliarity with the new setting needs to be sorted out. In a summary, this is the week that is filled with excitement and nervousness. Keep going!

Hindi or English? The Politics of Language

Please read the news first...

Hindi or English? The Politics of Language

Personally I have strong disliking for Indians- I was cheated many times by them. However, this article draws my attention. Some stupid political figures are trying to make Hindi as their first official language rather than English. They might have forgotten the fact that Indians always have advantages communicating with western world- just because they speak English well. So I want to tell people that don't let the same thing happen again in Taiwan- Chinese Mandarin will be a prevailing language in the world sooner or later, so don't be as foolish as the Indians.

What a small world it is!

Today I ran into a student of mine again on my way home- this was the second time ever by the way. He used to take my TOEIC courses a long while ago, so it's history. By the time I saw him today, he was about to go jogging at the elementary school track near by. Since it had been a long time since we last met, I felt a bit excited seeing him again trying to chat more with him. What surprised me was that he said he had begun teaching at a university in Hsinchu, and then wait a second ... that is EXACTLY the same school that I will be teaching at this September. What a coincidence! What a small world! I told him that our relationship had changed from teacher-student to teacher- teacher. Wasn't that interesting?

Happy Holiday!

Moon Festival is around the corner. I think we all are so much looking forward to it. But however I want to remind you that it may not be a good idea to eat too much BBQ food, so you need to know where to stop before eating too much.

A typhoon is said to be making its way to this island unfortunately, so let's hope that it'll only be bypassing us without causing any damages. I also hope that we all can see the full-moon tomorrow night. In any case, happy Moon Festival and have a great time with your loved ones and friends.
