The floating swimming suit was invented by Iris Huang at June 19th, 2017. It was an amazing invention that can help many kids learn how to swim easyly. As now, It’s still a good example of helping people to swim.


You can say it was just a swimming suit. But the most differently, this suit can also be a floating suit! All you need to do is blew some air into the straw on left, then you can float on the water just like a balloon! Many children was afraid of water, but with this coat, he will not sink anymore!

[Mickey]0611 論說文挑戰+看見台灣

Mickey's Writing

I agree students should enjoy later school start times. I have three reasons, health, safety and stress.

My first point is health. It had been proven by scientists that it is at 7 o’clock in the morning that our body is producing melatomin, which is really important for our body because it controls our biological clock. Nowadays, students often go to bed late because of the home work and quizes. If students don’t get enough sleep at night, they might fell asleep in class and get ever worse poor/bad grades!

My second point is safety. Some students were injured by car accidents( –There are more than one hundred students getting injured in car accidents). Students who always get up late often don’t care about other cars (lose attention/focus) when they walk across the street.  It is a very dangerous. If students enjoy later school start times, these problems would be much less (solve/ reduce). Also, student can have more time to pack their bags, so they won’t leave some books behind and waste time( is it about safety?).

My last point is stress. Students, who don’t get enough sleep, will get(suffer from) more stress. It is not good for children and teenagers. Their sleep effects(affects) their height, too. Students will be shorter if they don’t sleep much.(about health?)

I have talked about health , safety and stress. For these reasons, I beg to oppose.

My daily life–A celebration

gamesIris' writing

2017/ 0608

Today we had a celebration for our achievement at school.At first,I felt exited about it,but soon I found out it was a terrible celebration.First ,the hamburger only had meat and an egg. Next,the french-fries were tasteless.So I feel sad about that because I had been looking forward to have a hearty meal that include soup,fruit,or some snacks. However,I am not the principal,so I can not change anything but only can appreciate the dish they provided us.

Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?

Life today is easier and more comfortable than it was when your grandparents were children.

        I agree that life today is easier and more comfortable than it was when my grandparents were children. There are two reasons that I think so.  that can support my argument.

        First, scientists and inventers inventors have invented a lot of new things [that benefit our lives] in these recent decades. It doesn’t mean that all the new inventions can improve the quality of our life. There must be both helpful of unhelpful things in those inventions. For those unhelpful inventions, we can ignore them, and pretend that they don’t exist. This way doesn’t change our lives at all. However, for those inventions that are helpful to us, we can start using them to make are live easier and more comfortable. For example, someone invented the mobile phones, which make people can connect with each others easily. People believe that mobile phone is an useful and helpful invention, so it became popular, and make more and more people’s lives easier and more comfortable.(這些才是這段重點,放到前面先講)

        Second, [Taiwan is more peaceful than it used to be.]my grandparents were born in Taiwan in the 1950s, when the KMT and the CCP were having the Chinese Civil War. A few years later, the KMT lost and retreated to Taiwan. Before they are 40, they lived under the martial law, which is the martial law that lasted for the longest time in the world. How could it be possible to live a wonderful and comfortable childhood during that period of time? Today, there is no more war between Taiwan and China, and Taiwan become a country of democracy and freedom. The life in Taiwan now is definitely easier than before.(後面才是重點,)

        Because of For the two reasons above, people nowadays can  not only enjoy the new technology and inventions but also have a safe and joyful childhood. So, I believe that life today is easier and more comfortable than it was when my grandparents were children.

※[回答] (答案都在影片裡)
1. What did Emma do in the subway.
She is hiding books in the subway.

2. Why did Emma do so?
She want to make people love reading and to spread the love.

3. What do you think about her action? Will you do the same thing as she did? Why or why not? (at least 100 words)
I think Emma’s action is very good because she can let more people read the good book and they will not feel bored in the subway. But I think she don’t need to put so thick book because we can’t finish it. I will prefer to put thin but great book, and I think Taipei is a good example of it. Some station in Taipei, has some bookshelves in it, and there are different kinds of books. You can take a thick book if you want to go to a far place, or take a thin one for just one or two station. I will not put books in our MRT, but maybe I can read books in it!
