The Weekend

I hope you’re getting some time to relax and have a bit more fun now that the midterms are over?

Hopefully, the weather will be getting better in the not too distant future?

This song reminds me of summer, but not 500 Days of Summer 🙂 I haven’t seen it…

There are still some of you who have not emailed the title of your second essay. Also, you should be working on the typed outline of the essay which is due tomorrow, Wednesday 24th April.

You should also have read P188-89 and P191-192.

Here are a few articles regarding jobs, the workplace, and professions.

Engineering Grads Dominate CEO Positions

Challenges & Opportunities for foreign companies in Korea’s employment market.

Google Founder to Visit Korea – think about why he was visiting Korea. And why was Bill Gates meeting President PGH?

Korean executive abuses female flight attendant – the ‘not so’ glamorous side of a profession

Why Korea’s Middle Class Is Collapsing – this will give you interesting and useful statistics to use

 

Earth Day 2013

Today is Earth Day. Do you know anything about it?

Here’s a very short article (and an interactive Google Doodle) that explains

Also, here’s a video (with lyrics) of a great song that was written in 1971 about ‘ecology. Do you think he knew?

 


April 22 – Reading and Composition Week 8 – Readings

Week 8 Readings

Here are the readings for this week. Please read and tweet 🙂

April 12th 2013 – Essay Class

Here are the documents you’ll need.

Career Profile (1)

Please download this profile, print it, then complete it and bring it to class. The idea is you use it as a tool to help get the type of information you need for the essay.

Essay 2 Pre-Writing (1)

Also, here is the PPT that we showed in Wednesday’s class. You are free to look over it again as you’ll need to remember (and use) some of the key points for this second essay.

Finally, here are 3 articles that I came across today that cover our subject. 

The first is called ‘the high price of raising a well-educated child’. It contains lots of relevant facts and figures.

high price joongang

Next, is coincidentally talking about America’s fast food industry. Similar to the story we went over in class.

america fast food industry quick buck

Last, it’s about ‘getting a good job’, and in particular, here in Korea. Again, it has lots of facts figures etc that you could use in an essay.

where is all the talent?

I’ll see you tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!
