52 – Introduce yourself

Class 52 – Mon (9:00) and Wed (13:15)

Hi everyone,

Write a short introduction (about 50-75 words) about yourself. This will:

  • help you become comfortable with Brain Drain and
  • allow you and your classmates to get to know each other.

All of your writing assignments will have two parts:

  1. your main post (self-introduction)
    DUE TUES 11 MARCH, 11:59 pm
  2. a brief, but thoughtful reply to one or more of your classmates
    DUE WED 12 MARCH, 11:59 pm

If you’re not sure what to write about, here are some things you can include:

  • where you grew up and went to school
  • what you like to do in your free time
  • favorites (food, books, musicians, TV shows, etc.)
  • bad habits
  • some goals this semester
  • what you would like to do someday

Here’s my introduction:

Hi, it’s nice to meet all of you. I’ve lived in Korea for about ten years and am beginning my eighth year teaching at Kangnam University. I’m also the editor of the English edition of our university newspaper The Kangnam Hakbo. Please like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. If you’d like to do some work for the Hakbo, just let me know!

I’m from Roselle, IL, a quiet town about thirty minutes from Chicago. I have a wonderful wife who’s also my best friend. We don’t have children yet. I like writing and photography, but don’t do enough of it. I love junk food and would happily eat pizza and ramyeon every day if I didn’t think it would give me a heart attack. My wife says I drink too much coffee. She’s probably right. She usually is.

    I usually search internet, using SNS, listen to music, watch movie in my free time.

    But I think that study is important for my future. Above all, english is important to get a job. So I will study hard!
    Thank you for reading my story so far.

    Hi, I’m dowon. Could you fine to introduce myself? I was born and raised in Yongin. But, I commuted to high school to Gwangju. Gwangju is little far to me. So, I lived in a dormitory. When I lived there, it was hard time. Because, I feel lock in a dormitory. So, I came to Kangnam University that close my house. it is one of the reason that I was come here.

    After the hard high school times, I traveld to Vietnam.(It was first time to travel foreign country.) It was my best memory. I have thought to go to Vietnam for language study vaguely. But after the trip, I realized that I interested in traveling. So, this trip was motivated to think detailed my goal. My goal is businessman in Vietnam.

    Thank you for reading my imperfect writing.
