Hello. The spring camp has ended, and the students have gone back to their hometowns. The 11 days went quickly and everyone did really well. Now they will have a short time to relax before they go overseas for college and university.
My students did a good job on both of their longer writing compositions. Some students needed to add more details, but most of them followed the right writing pattern. They also finished their second live presentation and their recorded presentation.
The second presentation was about a good mood food restaurant. Students had to design a menu and a restaurant. They had to talk about the design of their restaurant. They showed us the floor plans of their restaurants and talked about what kind of decorations they would have and what kind of music they would play. Then they talked about the food they would serve. They talked about what ingredients they would use and how these ingredients would help make people feel better. They had some great ideas, and everyone spoke really clearly. They followed the speaking patterns that we studied in class, and they gave lots of details.
On the last day of class, we listened to the recorded presentations. For theses presentations, students had to make an ad for a vacation. They had to write a script and find music and sound effects for their ad. Then they had to put everything together and record their ad. Finally, they played their ad for the rest of the class. All the presentations were well done. The details were clear, students spoke with nice intonation, and they all chose music that was a good match for their ads. I was really impressed.
I was really surprised on the last day of class because when class started, all of my students were wearing the same t-shirt. Then I was even more surprised after class because my students gave me the same shirt as a gift. It was a nice surprise, and when we took a class photo, it looked really cool because we all looked the same.
When the course was over, we had a small graduation ceremony and party. All the teachers and students got together in a big room for pizza and donuts. Everyone was eating and talking and having a good time. Also, there were a lot of people taking pictures with their teachers and with their friends and classmates. Each student received a graduation certificate and the teachers made short speeches. We also took some group photos of teachers with their classes and everyone together. All the teachers told me how much they enjoyed teaching their students, and they told me how hard their students worked.
I hope all the students have a great time when they go overseas. I know that all the teachers and I will miss them.
