Week 9 Oyster

No.2
When he first saw the boat and M. Saint-jours, he must have thought that this isn’t a comfortable one, as he thought that this boat is small, and that M. Saint-Jours seems to have had a enduring job there. Also waiting there wasn’t an intriguing thing, either! However when he finished this trip, he changed. Now he felt strong, brave, and pride, thinking how challenging he is.

No. 4
He meant that the taste of oyster was something that he never tried before, and I might say that he had foreseen what his life is going to be like, the whole life as a chef, trying other foods that he has never tasted before.

Week 6 Thesis Statement

The education policies in Korea and France, both of them need to compensate their defects by learning from each other. Education is very important because it affects the human behaviors and determines overall social atmosphere, but neither of them is perfect; each has not only its own strengths but also own weaknesses too. Also I believe that the situation of Korea can suggest an answer to France and vice versa.

For the details, first of all I should state the educational policies that Korea or France adopt.

Then I will have to refer to the behaviorial differences of each country occured by education. For example, Koreans are tend to listen to others while French people are more apt to discuss, because that’s how they’ve taken classes. Also Koreans are often very obedient and enduring, while Frenchs are more liberal and sometimes a little bit thoughtless for others, because Korean learns to live a group life, while French students learn assert their rights.

As the strength of each country are, for the Korea, I’d like to state that Koreans can learn omnifariously, as we take various studies. On the other hand, French students don’t have to, so somehow Korean students show much higher academic standards. However when it comes to creativity, French students are much stronger than Korean students.

At some point, I’d like to say that Korea and France is in the opposit position. That’s why I can say each can learn from the other. For the last part I’m going to suggest some solutions how to improve the educational situations.

Week 5 Research Question

While I’m studying different languages, I can’t help noticing that there are tons of differences according to its region, especially cultural ones.

In this point of view, what I’m going to ask is, ‘how education affects human behaviors’. This time, I’d like to explain those differences by taking a deeper look into educational backgrounds. To make a comparison, I’ll take two examples, Korea and France, then compare the educational situations as causes and cultural or behavioral differences – not only weaknesses but also strengths, as results. And for the conclusion, I will not finish it by saying like, ‘so Korean education should change, by following one of France’ because I think neither ones is perfect, but instead, I would be able to say, ‘we can refer to each other to compensate the defects that we have’.

Therefore, what I should find first is the current school systems which are taken in these two countries, followed by remarkable behavioral differences that people show. Then there I will have to relate these factors and figure out how exactly the system affected. To conclude I will pose a question, ‘what can we learn from the other’. And I am sure that there are not only plenty of strengths that we can learn, but also some advantages that we can teach.

Week 5 Review

Unlike applied science, pure science is something that happens naturally in this world like physics, chemistry, etc., and applied science normally concerns human action to make it happen, like computer, or even like an education field.

Fine arts do mean ‘art’ that we can think of. Humanity, is more than a human-related studies including linguistics, history, etc.
