I am a student at a national university. I am an English major. I attend classes five days a week. I am now in Classroom 5310. It is break-time. I will describe the activities in my classroom.
In the front of the room, the teacher is standing near the desk. Several students are talking to the teacher. They are asking the teacher about the final examination. The teacher is explaining to them. The teacher is smiling. The students are smiling, too. Two students are standing near one of the classroom windows. They are talking about a TV soap opera they watched the night before. One respectful and thoughtful student walked out of the classroom and minutes later brought in a cup of tea for the teacher.
Near the center of the classroom, three students are discussing the horrible murder case in which a college student murdered his girl friend. Another student is using the break-time to write a letter to her boyfriend. She is not listening to their discussion. Still another student, an overseas Chinese student, is looking at those “mutual-longing” trees on the hillside outside the classroom. It seems that she is thinking of her boy friend thousands of miles away.
There are some students in the back of the classroom. One student is sleeping. Another student is listening to the BBC news broadcasting relayed by ICRT. Two students are each talking on the cellphone. Several students are coming into the room. They are ready to continue the lesson. The teacher is walking toward the platform. The class bell is ringing and the class is getting quiet.
In summary, there are many activities in my classroom. It is a very busy place. It is a classroom where students study modern English grammar and usage.
