Day 44 - What are your plans for summer vacation?

Level 4

Day 44 - What are your plans for summer vacation?

  • 맛집영어 영어수강 영어교재 이미지
  • Everybody loves vacations. I have never met a single person who hates vacations in my entire life. Recently I came to the point where I realized that a school vacation is more than just sleeping late and playing computer games. And these are the things that I am planning to do during my summer vacation.
    First of all, I am going to watch lots of English movies during this summer vacation. I heard that watching lots of English movies would definitely improve speaking and listening skills, and it is a fun method for studying English. Every time I watch an English movie with some popcorn and coke, I lose track of time. However, there are some rules to follow. I have to watch it without the captions and even if it gets a little boring, I try to watch it as many times as possible. Repetition is very important when it comes to learning English. To tell you the truth, my ultimate goal is to enter an English-speaking contest at school next semester. I don't want to just participate; I want to be the star of the contest.
    Second, I am going to spend lots of time reading many books. We all know how important reading is. Reading gives people wisdom and knowledge through indirect experience. I believe reading improves your critical thinking skills and communication skills. Kids who read lots of books tend to perform better in school, too. My teacher once told us in class that you are what you read. So I made a list of the books that I think I should read. I would like to read a variety of book genres such as fantasy, sci-fi, world history and biographies.
    Third, I am going to practice basketball every day. This semester I joined the basketball team; however, I hardly had a chance to play. Most of the time, I had to sit on the bench and watch others play. Well, this is not what I wanted. When I joined the team, my expectations were to be the best player on the team and to bring victory to my team. So, I am going to practice basketball very hard every day because practice makes perfect. My parents told me that playing basketball would make my body stronger and taller. How awesome is that? Honestly, I am not tall compared to other kids in my class. So if there is anything that I can do to be taller, I will do it. During vacation, time goes quickly. It seems like one day I started my vacation and the next day I am going back to school. I would like to manage my time effectively this vacation. Instead of letting it just fly-by, I am going to take control of it and make the most of it. Would you like to join me?
