We've watched "Smother" in today's English Class.

Teacher:Greta
Date:12th Aug 2008


Well , why I post this article in my blog , 
it's because I think I should record what I've learned from the class & the movie.
If I can keep doing this action after class , 
not only I can review it and also I can arrange for my note.
Furthermore, it's also easier for me to review it from the blog instead of a lot of disorder notes.
If I do nothing after class , 
I know it's almost impossible for me to review those notes.

Although some words & sentences which has been taught by the teacher today are easy for me ,
but the problem is ,
when I need to use those simple words or sentence ,
I usually forget how to use it !
Therefore , to start recording all these useful sentences I've learned from the class ,
maybe this can help me to have more impression on it.

Finally , I really have to say --

Liv Tyler is really beautiful !
And she also has a slender figure !
