Totally exhausted after a busy day!
It's now 10p.m in Vietnam now... And I just finished my dinner an hour ago... Today I had to do so many deals at work so I stayed late in my office. When I arrived home, I feel so tired (yawn!) but It makes me feel quite refreshed reading my new lovely teacher, Jo and all of you guys' comments.
Jo, thank you so much for your entry. You seemed to read my blog very carefully... I really appreciate it. I know that you didn't comment too much on my first entry... But next time, please find out more and more mistakes. It's the best way for me to correct my writing so that I can brush up my English, right? Actually, I did look up the dictionary the word "defend". I knew it had some problems but just didn't know to use which word. Sometimes I find difficulties in expressing very simple ideas. And I think this is a problem for all foreign language learners. Hope that I can overcome this problem soon. I have learnt English since I was very small, but you know, I didn't use any English during my 4 years at university as we spoke Vietnamese and Chinese only. I am eager to finish all of the homework you give me, but I am very afraid of getting bad marks :-). You did have a really nice trip to Normandy. I wish I could have chance to go to Europe in the soonest time because I like travelling and exploring new places so much! I also want to find some scholarships in UK to study for Master... But don't know whether I have opportunities or not....
Today I am so happy to have a pretty teacher... Jo, hope you will help me more in the next 30 days. And as promised, I will tell you the story about one of the teachers that I ever respected most, who brought me to BBC Learning English, who brought me the passion for studying English. He was my English teacher for a very short time in a small English center more than 10 years ago. I was the smallest student in the class at that time (a 7 or 8 year-old girl I think). And you know, most of the students in that class were much more older than me and they went there to study English for their career or whatever. I just studied at that center because it was very near my house. Although I am the smallest, however I am not the worst student in that class of course ^_^. We had 2 teachers teaching us at that time as I remembered. One of them named Binh. He was very handsome with very smart face, he had wonderful voice and wonderful hand writing as well (you even could not recognise whether the papers he wrote were hand writing or typing). That was my first impression on him. He taught us for a very short time (about 1 month) then he said goodbye to us because he had to go to Poland to pursue his master. I still remembered during that 1 month I had studied a lot from him. At the last day before he went to Poland, he said goodbye to all of us and asked all of us to leave the names, addresses and telephone numbers for him. After he went to Poland, he also sent me one postcard on the National Women day! A really lovely and thoughtful teacher! I missed him so much at that time.
Then my family moved to another address so we lost contact for more than 10 years. But during those 10 years, I always remembered I'd ever had a wonderful teacher like him. I always talked to myself that I must study as well as him and be successful in the future. He made me try hard to study to achieve today's results. Recently, when I graduated from the university with very good grade, I just thought of him, didn't know where he was and what he was doing at that moment... I didn't have his address any more as 10 years had passed... Just a crazy idea... Find him in the internet... But how can? by which channel? Just thought... and thought. I tried the skype to find the person whose name was like him... but too many, couldn't know who and who... Maybe he didn't use Skype...hopeless... Another day, just thought of him again... And I decided to type his name in Google to see how the results were... Oh, the first one appreared on the screen was the name of one Vietnamese famous football player... :-P At that time, I felt so sad as I thought I could not use this way to find him... However, I still tried to access some of the other sites in Google... Just see one PhD of Chemist who was working in Munich University in Germany... After 10 years, I didn't remember well how he looked like... "Could it happen that he moved from Poland to Germany??? Could it happen that this guy was him???..." So many thoughts arised in my small head... "Why don't you try to write this guy an email? It costs nothing, right? And you still have a very little hope to find your teacher..." I decided to write this man an email explaining the reason why I wrote such an email to him and said sorry if he was not the one I was looking for...
BUT CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT IT WAS REALLY HIM... When I read this reply, I just wanted to shout loudly... I believe that in this world there are fates and invisible connection between people... We contacted each other again and I am so proud to tell my teacher that I am not that small child anymore, I already grew up and still keep improving my English...
Oa.... my story seems a little bit long and aren't you fed up with reading it??? I hope you aren't and keep writing comments to my entry.
It's time for me to go to bed now as I have to get up early tomorrow morning for a new busy working day!!!
