Last week I met my speaking partner Rex. He is a kind person. He told me his wife is Japanese and they have interest in my country Taiwan. So we talked about my family and Taiwan’s history.

This weekend I moved from my brother’s house to Seven Springs. That is first time I living along in the United States. I bought a lout of microwave foods and beers. Living along is more convenience than live with my brother. Because when I was liveing in his house, I could’t smoking in the room. Now, I can smoking any time I want. I know somebody will say smoking is not good for your health. But, an unfortunate is I can’t quit it.

This was my first month to MEI, and I have been here three weeks. I like my teacher Nina because she is a kind person. She always care about our learning and the foods we eating. The way she taught us is very different in my country.

I ate lunch at the Dairy with my teacher and five classmates. It was my first time to eat at the Dairy. I had a chicken wrap because I like chicken. Since I came to MEI, I have eaten at McDonald's every day, so I thought it was time for a change. During lunch we talked about where we live. That helped us to get to know each other better.

My name is Hsin-Hong Lin. I come from Taiwan, which is a small country. My brother is living in MD and working here. My parents are in Taiwan. My other brother and elder sister are both married. I studied economics at university when I was in Taiwan. I like driving but I don’t have a driver’s license in the United States. When I was in the military, I was a V-150 driver. That was interesting because the V-150 is like a tank, but not exactly. Now, I play video games every day.

I came to the United States because my father wants me to be here. He wants me to come here to study English because he does business with Europeans and he wants me to help him with that. The other reason is that my father wants me to change my lifestyle.
