homework ~!!^^

In my country, there are three types of school. Women, men, and co-education school. When I was in high school student, my school is Young-Pa women’s high school. Our school is famous because our school is so big. There are 21 classes each grade. School semester starts in March different in America’s. We have to wear uniforms. Our school’s uniform looks good because very famous designer in our country designed our school uniforms. So my friends who are different school of mine envy me. When I graduated my school, I was sad because I couldn’t wear uniform anymore.
And I have to switch classrooms sometimes. Some of subjects are divided level so we have to change classrooms at that time. When I came to the U.S.A, I was surprised because of some difference systems. For example, I couldn’t eat anything during class in my country, but I can eat something in the U.S.A. Also, it is hard to speak my opinion to professor freely in my country, I can ask questions to professor during class in the U.S.A. Furthermore, I was too much shocked because of dormitory. In my country, even though they are same school students, man and woman lived different dormitory. But now I lived dormitory in the U.S.A, man and woman used same dorm.
These days, I missed my school days. I can’t go back at that time now. I can’t forget that times.

homework 5

Korean people like coffee and tea, especially Korean women. Whenever they finished their eating, they would drink coffee. So there are many coffee shop such as Starbucks, Coffee bean in Korea. But other people don’t like coffee because they think coffee is not helpful in our body. They drink tea instead of coffee. Insa-dong is a famous place in Korea where the place sells many kinds of tea such as green, Jasmine tea.
I love coffee. I drink coffee two times a day. Especially, I like vanilla latte. When my feeling is not good, I drink it and then my feeling is better than before. During my term examination, I drink too much coffee because I have to study until late at night. Now, I became depending on coffee to study until late. I think that is why I like coffee.
But these days I try to reduce times to drink coffee because caffeine is not good to me. I drink decaffeinated coffee instead of coffee. I know coffee is not helpful for me but I like it .

In our country’s movie industry is not as big as United States.
Few big movie companies controlled Movie industry so small companies suffer hard time. Because few big companies occupy many theaters to put on the screen their movies, small size companies don’t have to opportunity to run their movies.
Our county people prefer foreign films to national films. Especially, Holly wood movie. Many people prefer Holly wood movies, Our company industry has been in the red since 2004. For that reason, movie companies and actors insist Screen Quota. But this insistence is not accepted by court so they still insist now.
Even thought our movie company’s condition is not good. I also prefer Holly wood films. My favorite movie is “Serendipity”. My favorite movie genre is romantic comedy and “Serendipity” is typically that genre. I saw that movie over 5 times. Whenever my feeling is not good, I saw that movie than my feeling become better. That movie’s scenery is New York. Many New York places show up in the movie. If I have a chance, I really want to visit that places.

What is your favorite food

My favorite food is pizza. It's not our courty's food , but I liked it.
2 years ago, i visited Roma in Italy, i ate pizza there. Pizza is a Italy's traditional food so taste is great.
i couldn't forgot that taste. I can't eat spicy food so i don't like Korean traditional foods. Pizza is not spicy so i love it.
When i was young, my mother cooked pizza for me at home. That taste is not as delicious as pizza that i ate in Italy, but i missed that taste now.
If I have a chance to learn how to cook a pizza, I really want to make it by myself.

p.s I'm sorry too late ~~

What was your initial reacion to coming to the U.S

I came to the United State on Aug 13. When I arrived at St.Louis airport, I worried so much. Because it was the first time, I went long way without someone. Everything was interesting and nervous to me. While I stayed St.Louis, I expected Carbondale’s life. At that time, I didn’t know well about there, so I wondered the place. But I arrived at Carbondale, I was little disappointed. It was different what I thought. I was lonely because at that time class didn’t start and my roommate didn’t come yet. Now I had a roommate and many friends so my life was better than before. I really want to make a precious memory and improve my English ability in the Carbondale
