Memory of AE6-7

March 9, 2009 2 comments

I’ve forgot this site for quite a long time. Mr. Steve asked each of us to create a blog for studying purposes. It somehow didn’t work well but I like his ideas, his teaching methodology. He is so humorous. Wow!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for his idea, now I have one more blog to write.

It has been more than 3 months since the ending ceremony of AE7. I surprised that until now I still remember the time I had with those cute guys. When I entered AE6, I think they are just classmates and stranger to me. There was no need to be close to them. I hide myself. That was true but not for a long time. I soon realized that they are quite similar with the guys at K38A16: funny, cute, enthusiastic, talkative, etc although they are at different age. I felt comfortable to have conversations about everything with them, like “dark” stories, life, study… That was my great time. I felt I was a student again: go to class, study, take notes, chat, and work in group, have parties… Yesterday, I received a msg from Phuc Anh. It made me smile and I read aloud for my husband. He didn’t smile. Hic. I was a little bit sad. But no matter ‘cause he doesn’t understand how I feel about these guys.

Woww!!! Wish I could turn back time! Miss all my guys!

Globalisation has a negative impact on developing coutries. To what extend do you agree or disagree with this statement.

Globalisation has become one of the most popular growing trends in modern societies. Some people say that globalisation has negative effects on developing countries whilst others insist that many developing countries benefit from globalisation. This essay will argue for globalisation by focusing on trade liberalisation and global equality.

The first positive impact globalisation has on developing countries is trade liberalisation. Opponents of globalisation would argue that developing countries are economically controlled through globalisation whereas supporters argue globalisation creates free trade opportunities for developing countries. Globalisation requires trade barriers to be removed, which may make industrialised countries’ markets easily accessible. Furthermore, investment liberalisation has encouraged multinationals to invest in developing countries. This may result in the development of the countries’. An illustration of this is India whose rank in global economy was promoted from 80th in 1991 to 4th in 2001.

Secondly, it may be true that globalisation leads to an increasing gap between the rich and the poor but globalisation promotes the global equality between developed and developing countries. The former helps the latter by means of direct foreign investment through non-government organisations assisting in infrastructure improvement and development of the society. For instance, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has been supporting Vietnam in major areas such as environment, education and public health. In addition, there are international organisations established to balance benefits and protect rights amongst countries, namely the United Nations (UN), the World Bank (WB), and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

In conclusion, globalisation brings massive benefits for developing countries, especially free trade and global equality. With the help of industrialized countries and international organisations, developing countries may enhance not only the economic situation but also political position worldwide.

Topic: Should money be spent on space exploration?

Vu Thi Thanh Mai

In recent times, the rapid development of science has helped to improve our lives. Amongst all sciences, space science has contributed striking achievements to our modern world. Outer space exploration should be invested for two major reasons: a long-term solution to overpopulation and scientific inventions.

Firstly, overpopulation problem could be solved by finding other planets for people to live. According to a recent research, the world population is expected to double in 50 years as people have acquired both health and longevity these days. Though the population is becoming bigger, the Earth will not get larger. Hence, there will be no more places for people to live. Top space scientists of the world have been conducting experiments to discover that the Mars has conditions accommodating life. Therefore, spending money on exploring space helps us to find out a long-term solution to this vital issue, which will be a benefit for all people in the globe.

Secondly, space exploration serves scientific inventions. These inventions has been using widely and contributing a great deal to human’s life. For instance, discovery of outer space satellite is used in transforming digital information of mobile phones, communication television and radio that play a crucial role in our lives. Furthermore, some inventions for space use now are available for people on the Earth. An illustration of this is software helping design automobiles by letting designers see how well a design will work even before building a sample. It was a computer program developed by NASA for analysis of a spacecraft.

In conclusion, money should be spent on exploring space to solve overpopulation problem and to support for scientific innovation as mankind living both at the present and in the future could benefit from it. Therefore, space exploration should be focused on scientific purpose as well as economic purposes.

Yesterday we learnt about music, movies and books GENRE.

(It is much much better to say genre instead of using kind or type. It seems to make speakers more advanced.)

Music genres: pop, jazz, rock, classical, folk. new age, dance, R&B, country (American cowboy music, not traditional), instrumental, metal, punk.


– Non-fiction: historical (boring for me), biography, auto-biography, academic

– Fiction: Novel, short-stories, romance, sci-fi, fantasy, poetry (Pushkin is famous for this genre), drama, folk tales.

We also learnt some different expressions of like, dislike, relax, and reason used to talk about favourite kind of music, books or movies.


enjoy, crazy about _____, I’m keen on ________, ______ is without a doubt the best _______, I’m quite taken by______.


I can’t stand ______, _______ hurts my ears, ______ puts me off, I despise ______.


take a load off, kick back and relax, chill out, forget my worries, switch off from work, take it easy.


humorous, blood and gore, encouraging, optimistic, realistic, enjoyable, exiting, amazing…

There are some words that need to be kept in mind

saturated = no more spaces


lure (v) = to attract

(n) = a thing to attract

ex: going fishing, people use “lure” to attract fish. It’s pronounced like “lua” in VNese.

tariffs = tax on imported goods

quotas = restrictions/ limits on amount of imported goods

barrierstrade barriers = obstacle, hindrance

overshadow = esclipse

ex: Honda overshadows Yamaha in Vietnam.

sophisticated = complex, well-structured system
