Advanced English Creative Writing 3


A view of an elevator in the Lakeshore, in Hsinchu Taiwan. Taken on the 9th of January 2007 with a Nikon D200 and a 18-35mm. Part of the Lakeshore Elevator Series.

It’s Thursday and it was time for another of my Advanced English classes. I have had great feedback from the Moms and they want to pursue these classes once a week for two hours after Chinese New Year. Things are looking good.

This time, one student had not done any homework, she felt a bit sick because of all the chocolate that they were eating during the holidays. I made her write out the homework for next week and she was able to start working, when the rest of the class was working.

Their diaries are coming along great, most of them write in the every day and they were pleasantly surprised when I told them that I was writing in one as well for my upcoming travel plansI explained and described my notebook, I hadn’t thought about bringing it with me, but they enjoyed to hear that. I was trying to show them that the teacher will write everyday as well. I also told them that I was currently writing the same stories as they were. In their eyes at least, they found this pretty impressive. I will have to show them what I have written at some point. I will probably just read it out loud to them.

Their stories are getting already a bit more complex, that is quite impressive, after only a few classes. I think that the students actually enjoy writing and look forward to it, which is a good sign.
