Eun Bi Go, a pre-intermediate student, wrote a poem today in class. She first read a story about a boy who enjoyed sitting on the beach and playing with the sand. Eun Bi chose words and phrases from the story that appealed to her and constructed them into a poem:
Stones and shells
Look and look as far as . . .
Gaze up at the clouds
Idly throwing sand
– Eun Bi Go
When asked what feelings her poem conveyed, Eun Bi replied, “relaxing, peaceful, and lazy.”
Sometimes studying English can be difficult, frustrating, and boring. Yet sometimes it can be fun, and even beautiful.
