My weakness

It's very difficult to talk about our weaknesses. I'll try.
One of my weakness is impatience.
I realized this trait when the situation lasts too long, I'm getting nervous. I don't like to wait, to do the same tasks over and over again, or wait in the line even for a short time. I do everything fast, often too fast.
When I saw on the Marcella's poster that spring is coming, I'm asking, why so late?
At my age it's difficult to change but now, I think: be patient, spring is coming in March, sure.
It's never too late to learn, it's never too late to change. We learn a lifetime!

My weakness

One of my weakness is that i can be profuse. When i have money i want to buy many thing which i dispensable . I realized this was a problem because i keep spending my money on useless things. I am working on being more careful spending the money and trying to learn how to save .

For me, one of my weaknesses is that I can't be organized. I realized this was a problem when i got married and have my baby because my responsibilities became more and more. so sometimes,  I started to focus on some work that is unnecessary and not complete the rest , so I'm working on being more organized by making and following my  new orderly routine schedule to make my daily routine more in order.

My Weaknesses

One of my weaknesses is that I can be too unorganized and can't manage time. I realized that because one day I had so much to do that I didn't know how to finish everything. I'm working on being more organize by making schedule.

Young's weakness

One of my weaknesses is that I can be too finished befor duedate on tasks or projets or homeworks that I don't try to my best.  I realized this was problem example, when I had homework I always did.  but I didn't have high mark.  I am working on playing attention to my problem by checkimg more than three times.

My Weaknesses

One of my weaknesses is that I can be too Persistent so that I can keep doing my projects day in and day out untill I finish it.  I wasn't usually relaxed enough.  I realized this was a problem that damaged my healthy. My body was so weak, that my ability didn't equal to  my ambition. I' m working on planning a schedule for my actions and keeping working out.


Dear Class,

Thanks for writing a blog post about your strengths and weaknesses for Assignmnet 5.
It is a good first effort.

Now I would like to Fine-tune it (make it better, stronger, more focused)

This week, I would like you to make some changes to what you wrote about your weaknesses.
Here is a simple formula to use:

1. DEFINE:  One of my weaknesses is that I can be _____________________
2. REALIZE PROBLEM:  I realized this was a problem because_____________
3. SOLUTION:  I am working on being more _______ by doing ____________

Susan's Example:
One of my weaknesses is that I can be too focused on one task or project that I don't pay attention to my emails until the project is finished. I realized this was a problem when my co-workers were frustrated with me for not responding to their questions or requests on time. I am working on paying attention to my emails by setting a routine for checking them 3 times a day - first in the morning, again at lunch and finally before the end of the workday.

Please finish your changes for Monday, March 3.

Hi  Marcella ,

I would like to inform you that i can't come today and tomorrow, because my husband works these two days at the morning shift .

Thank's ,

But sometime I'm not able to finish the work by faster , because the situation is not simple and I can't make a dicision quick enough ,because I'm a person who afraid to make a mistake ,that is my weakness  point.

Now i am going to learn English , my weakness point is that i can't work in a team work , in my class i work with many students , but i feel like i can't understand quickly , but when i return at home i can understand most of the lessons .
I am working on learning new skills and trying to make effort working with other students ,and resist shy and work as a team .

I am going to talk about one of my strengths and one of my weaknesses

    I am a honest person but I' mnot a brave.
    I was always honest about everything's. I'm a trustworthy and genuine person. But, sometimes I can't brave speak my right view to other. I'm afraid they are not happy. Brave speak my right view to other isn't my strong suit but I don't want to tell a lie.
    Brave isn't my strng suit, so I chose the teacher this industry to be honest with children.

About me

      I am going to talk about one of my strengths and one of my weaknesses.

      I am an organized, responsible, hard-working and kind. I am honest but sometimes I am shy and impatient

      I am sometimes very shy and impatient. I am very organized, responsible and hard-working. I know this because I work at home and keep everything organized. I am very shy and I don't talk to many people, when I am in a crowd I usually wait near the back or stay with the people I know. I prefer to be with the people who are closest to me.

     These are my strengths and weaknesses. I hope to be less shy and less impatient. I like to keep being organized and kind to others.

About Me

I'm going to talk about one of my strengths and one of my weakness. I am kind person who is honest, calm and friendly, but sometimes I'm very shy and scared. I'm afraid to try new things because I'm always shy. I have to fight my fear and to be more strong I teach my children they must be strong confident themselves and to not be like me. Through life to fight to be strong and successful if you shy and quiet you can't succeed. I have to fight my fear and try new things.

     I am going to talk about one of my strengths and one of my weaknesess.


    I am a honest and upstanding person but I'm not hard. I'm emotional
( it's my weaknesess).


    I am a very  honest in the thing, straightforward, trustworthy and fine in the work. I'm genuine, and open, sometimes I have flaws. But I,am consistent with facts and reality without emotional. Emotional is not my natural gift knowing it can help me better Understand the right treatment for my chronic illness (emotional). When I have a serious situation in front of me: I panic.


   Emotional is not my natural gift but i had to make a effort. And I would like to say calm when a serious situations come to me.

So, I always ask my self why I can't ,every one can drive , but now I puch my self to try again why that very important for me and my kids , but this year I challenge my self to develop my skills, So I will avoid my weakness.

Different Dalson

I'm Dalson from China. I'm the kind of person who is calm, stable, careful, curious,smart, funny and hard working. Specially, I'm persistent very much.
When I was a child, my teacher told me, "If you want to succeed, you have to do your best and keep doing as long as required." I never forget this sentence. If I decide to do somethings, I never give it up. In order to make myself to be persistent, I do my best. When I do any things, I must ask myself can I keep doing till ending? In 1982, I learned to do Tai Chi. Since that time, I do Tai Chi every day until now. In order to study English, I almost always attend English class. When the weather was -26 Celcius and the real feels liked -35 Celcius, I went to school in time yet. I noticed most of students were absent for the morning class.
"When we have a strength, we always have a connected weakness,"Marcella told me. Bingo! My strength is persistent,but my weak point is persistent too. In 1995, I learned to play basketball. I couldn't run fast, so I practiced to shoot at a fixed point. From that time, I had persevered with playing basketball every morning until 2012. Raining, snowing and wind couldn't stop me playing basketball. One day, it was snowing, I got up ant went to play basketball in time. One and half hours past, the playground was covered by snow, but the place there I played basketball appeared yet. I was famous for basketball skills in the Anhui Jianzhu University. My friends thought I was stubborn.
I know I'm persistent, but I keep a weakness persistently yet. I think God is fair!

Notice About Me.

I'm going to talk about one of my strengths and one of my weakness. I'm a very brave and strong person, but I get scared in some situations . They're opposites of the same thing . I'm a very brave and strong person and I'm not a fraid to try something new . Like, trying on a strange clothes or trying a new scary rides. But I'm scared of  high places and start feeling dizzy. For example, trying a very high rides or go up to the high buildings or towers like CN Tower . I have to fight my fear and to be more stronger and braver than before.

Assignment 5 Due Monday Feb 24

Hello Class!
Assignment 5 is due on Monday, February 24.

We have been describing ourselves and describing others in preparation for our Interview module that begins next week. You will be practicing your answers to some of the most common and most important interview questions, so get used to talking about yourself!

For Assignment 5, I would like you to tell us about your personal strengths and weaknesses.
When we have a strength, we always have a connected weakness. For example, if we are very organized we probably cannot manage very well in chaos.

So please think about your one great strength and  your one great weakness and write a paragraph describing them.

Remember to use proper paragraph structure:
1 Introduction (introduce the topic)
2 Main statment/Topic sentence (this is true/this is my opinion about the topic)
3  Explain or describe with a few (2 or more) details or examples
4 Conclusion


Intro: I am going to talk about one of my strengths and one of my weaknesses.

Main statement/Topic sentence: I am a very creative and spontaneous person but I am not a naturally good planner. They are opposites of the same thing.

Explanation I am good at thinking on my feet and coming up with new ideas in a few seconds. I can also jump into an activity without any planning or notice. Planning is not my natural gift so I've had to work on becoming better at it. I realized that making it easy for me to plan is the best idea. Automatic withdrawl for savings and investments is easy and I don't have to think about it. Having a calendar on my cellphone is easy to access because I take my phone everywhere.
Conclusion: Planning is not my natural gift so I had to make a plan! :)

Thank You, My Teacher---for 30 days-30

Monday, January 17th, 2014
At 66 years old, I met a good teacher named Marcella. Marcella is tall with long and curly hair. She is the kind of person who is calm, patient, friendly, good faith, funny, considerate and organized. She is hardworking.
Our class includes the students from level 3 to level 5. They came from different countries. It is very difficult to make all students understand English and use it, but the most of the students are satisfied, so we think she is a good teacher.
How does she teach students well? Except she is persistent enough, she researches some methods to teach students. Marcella created Morning English Blog and organized a afternoon conversation group. Marcella usually give us some home works on the line. She encourages us more to practice. She usually replays our paragraphs. She gave me 17 comments and commented all my homeworks. Not only she pointed some problems in the paragraphs, she also encouraged me keeping doing.
"An excellent idea Dalson! Writing everyday will be very good for your English fluency-but talk talk talk!"Marcella wrote on January 21.
 "What a great experience! There is a way to get back in your canoe by yourself-I will have to show you-you use your paddles..." After my paragraph she wrote on January 27, 2014. What a good teacher! Thank you-my teacher!
On Friday my nephew came from the hospital we were happy and busy.On Saturday 4 family from US and London ON visited my nephew and they slept in my house we played some games On Sunday night we ate togather for Family Day and they left .

Mr. Donguo And a Wolf---for 30 days-29

Sunday, February 16th, 2014
Long long ago, there was a country named Zhongshan. Mr.Donguo who was a school teacher lived in Zhongshan's capital---Tang.
One day, Mr.Donguo leashed his donkey and went to another city. He put some books into a cotton bag, then put it on the donkey 's back. When he was walking on the far way from Tang, a wolf hurriedly rushed out. The wolf  crawled ahead and faced against Mr. Donguo. The wolf asked him for help by crying pitifully, "Help me! Help me! Sir. Some hunters are after me to want to kill me."
Mr. Dong Guo hid the wolf in his bag and put it on the donkey's back again. When the hunters came and asked him if he had seen any wolf, he lay. The hunters left and the wolf was saved.
After that, the wolf got out of the bag and jumped at Mr. Donguo with sharp teeth. "You must not kill me. It's me to save you,"he yelled. "Thank you! But I'm very hungry, I will be death because of hunger. If you want to help me, you must let me eat you,"the wolf said. "It's unfair! We have to find others to assess who is correct."Mr. Donguo said. "Ok! But a number of the people can't be more than three,"the wolf answered.
While the wolf saw a old date tree beside the road, he said:"we ask the old tree." "Sir, I saved this wolf. Must I be killed by the wolf? "Mr. Donguo asked the old tree. "When I was young, people ate my dates. Now, I'm old, people want to cut me for burning. According this reason you should be eaten," the date tree answered. The wolf wanted to kill Mr. Donguo. "Wait! Wait! Do you see that cow? We may ask her,"Mr. Donguo said loudly. "When I was young, people drunk my milk. Now, I'm old, the people want to kill me and eat beef. According this reason you should be eaten," the cow answered.
When the wolf jumped at him with sharp teeth again, just right a old farmer came here."Stop! Stop!"Mr. Donguo cried,"If this person think you are right, I agree with you eating me. "Why do you kill this master?" the farmer asked the wolf. "He put me into his cotton bag. I had been suffocated and nearly shocked in that bag. I must eat him," the wolf said loudly. "Is true? The bag is too small to hide you. Can you prove what you said for us?" The wolf got into the bag again and it was tied up as before.
"What are you waiting for?" asked the old man to Mr. Donguo. "Why don't you kill him right now?" Only then did Mr.Doguo wake up to reality. And the wolf was put to death.

In 2010, she came in in 10th place of 500m Short Track Speed Skating. In this semifinals her result was the last one in all athletes. In the final, she stood on the most outside track in four tracks.
The final began! Jianrou was the last athlete again. Other athletes fast skated ahead and crowed each other. It dramatically happened that all the athletes except Jianrou fell down and slipped for long distance. When they returned to their tracks, Jianrou already finished her game. She got a gold metal.

Multiply Cultures---for 30 days-24

Wednesday, February 11th, 2014
Canada is a country that consists of immigrants from many countries in the world. They bring different cultures. Most of the kids who were burn in Canada keep parents' cultures. My granddaughters who were burn in Canada keep either Chinese culture, or other cultures. They speak in Chinese mandarin and English,  they can speak in French and Spanish, so they have known different cultures. They wouldn't be impossible, if they had been burn in China.
I pay close attention to that they lost many Chinese traditions. They can't read Chinese books. They don't know Chinese histories. We called these kids "banana" that means Chinese skins and Canadian hearts. In this morning, teacher Dawn asked me to write "Happy New Year" in Chinese. Suddenly, I didn't know how to write. Why do we blame these kids?

A Chinese Story---for 30 days-22

Sunday, February 9th,2014
Once upon a time, a small horse and her mother lived in a house near a river. One day, the old horse was working in a mill for long time. "Could you cross a river and send a bag of flour to the village?" the old horse told the small horse and pointed a village across the river.
The small horse went to the river for sending the bag. While he came near the bank of the river,he met a cow. "May I cross the river?" the small horse asked the cow. "No problem. it is deep as my hooves." the cow said,then she went away. The small horse was crossing the river. "Stop the boy! Stop the boy!" a squirrel yelled. "Yesterday my guy drowned in the river." The small horse didn't  know how to do and decided come back to ask his mother. "The cow is taller than you and the squirrel is shorter than you. If you want to know whether you can cross the river, you have to try by yourself." The small horse went to the river again. He carefully went ahead in the river and safely reached other bank. The river neither was deeper than what the squirrel said nor shallower than what the cow said. If you really know somethings, you have to practice by yourself.

Where there is a will, there is a way! for 30 days-21

Saturday, February 8th, 2014
To learn English is so difficult, that I sometimes think I am not a good student in English. I'm very persistent, so it isn't easy that I give it up. I keep learning English for long time, and learning English is a important part of my life.
I read a story about Hellen Keller. When, nineteen months after Helen was born, she became very sick and strange sickness made her completely blind and deaf. She wanted to communicate with others and to do what others did, and do it just as well. The study of language was especially difficult for Helen, but she could only learn about several languages, and finished all courses in the college. Finally, Hellen Keller became a famous writer and teacher. Her success encourage me to learn English as well.
There is a old story in China. Long long ago, there was a man whose name was Foolishman. He lived at a village between Mountain Taihang and Mountain Wangwu. Every day he must climb the mountain for working. He decided to dig Mountain Wangwu for building a passageway. He spent a lot of time to dig the mountain. Mr. Smartman, Foolishman's friend, told him that the mountain was too big to build the passageway. Mr. Foolishman said:"where there a will, there is a way! Even when I die, I shall have sons surviving. My sons will have their sons. My sons, grandsons,  grand-grandsons and grand-grand-grandsons aren't limited,but the mountain couldn't get bigger. Why couldn't we get successes?" God knew about it, he moved the Mountain Wangwu away.English seems a mountain that I face against. I believe that if I take as long as required, I will get successes.
I'm a wise person' and I know to give some advice when my friends need. I have the power of discern and judge.  I know to keep my family secrets.  I know if something is true or right. I'm discrete. I know to give some  advice to my kids for not doing the fault because to be wise ask many energy.  I have a lot experience for take a decision and cheer with my kids

I'm very persistent. 
When I was child, my teacher told me if you want to succeed you have to do your best and to keep doing as long as required. I believe that successes will follow doing. Since that day, I decided to be persistent.
In order to study English, I have studied English by myself for more than thirty years. I first went to English class in Canada. When the weather was -26 Celcius and the real feels looked -35 Celcius, I went to English class in time. Why? I have remembered I have to be persistent. I also taught my kids to be persistent.
I hope I will get more healthy. I like swimming, playing table tennis and doing Taichi. I have worked out since 1982.
If we do our best and keep doing, why we couldn't get successes?

I am respectful and peaceful I go to English school I love learn English I hope so my English get better

Came Back Home---for 30 days-15

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014
I came home,after we had lived in my daughter's house for 10 days. The snow thickness is about one foot on my driveway. I am very happy, because my neighbor shoveled most  of  snow on the driveway. It wasn't first time already. We usually visit our kids. When we weren't at home, mostly they could shovel snow or mow the grass for us. They are our good neighbor. When we shovels the snow or mow the grass, we usually have small talks. If I can fluency speak English, maybe we will be good friends. I hope to improve English quickly.

My 30-days challenge

I think  that my 30-days English challenge is not to difficult but require a systematical work.
It necessary learn a new volabularies after reading the text, and to repeat  the next day.
I decided to try to learn every day, if that will be impossible, I will continue next day.

My Granddaughters--for 30 days-14

Saturday, Febrary 1st, 2014
I have been at my daughter's house for 9 days. Every day I play with my granddaughters. We do homework, play games, tell stories and watch TV together. When their parents go to work and they are at home, I have to take care of them. I order them to do home works and play piano. Sometimes they are bored with playing piano or  doing homework, they need to have break. Sometimes they have break too long to finish their jobs.
Maybe I spoil my granddaughters a little bit. Sometimes, I stop their parents from blaming my granddaughters. Whose grandparents don't spoil their grandchildren? But, of course, I know that spoiling is not good. When my kids were children, I was strict father yet. If they didn't finish their homework I sometimes make them time out. More than 30 years passed and I often remembered how I  taught my kids. Though children need care, they also need teaching.
