Hi,

I want to thank you for your support of my blog's facebook page, even though I didn't write anything new.  I have a favor to ask if that does not cause you too much trouble.  I will need 25 fans to get a unique user name to customize my facebook web page address.  Right now, I have 6 likes.  I don't know if my own like counts or not.  Anyway, I will need about 20 likes to get my  own unique web page address.  If you have benefited in the past from my answers or my articles or if you like the articles I wrote in the past, will you click  the "like" button on my facebook page?  You can also leave your comments there to let me know what you would like to hear from me.  I will try my best to help if I have the time and the ability.  Thanks!

By the way, this is the link.   https://www.facebook.com/pages/Elisas-English/567161503314433?ref=hl

If you are interested, you are welcome to check out my new facebook page for this blog.  In there, I am posting my old blog entries, but I will add comments as I see fit and include links to books or sites that I recommend. 

I also welcome your suggestion to make it a better site to provide information to you.

If you have been asking me questions or following my blog, you might find that it takes much longer now for me to post a response or an article. As my kids grow older, I am spending more and more time with them to monitor their schoolwork and to make sure that they have completed their school assignments. The time left after work and after being with family becomes less and less affordable for me to write an article or respond to any question. I still welcome your questions, but sometimes I got sick of answering grammar questions that do not make sense at all. I often wonder your purpose of learning English. To me, learning a language is to be able to communicate verbally and in writing effectively. Have you thought of how you learn Chinese? The technique should be similar.

That said, I just set up a Facebook page for my blog.  Why did I do that?  A friend of mine recently indicated to me that I could actually blog on Facebook as well, except that if I made it visible to the public, it would invite the world to comment on my blog articles. I also just found out that some of my friends set up a Facebook page recently to promote their first book and to answer questions from their target audience. That gave me an idea to create a Facebook page as well. I probably won't blog on that Facebook page, but since I log into my Facebook account more often than into my blog, I will be more accessible to my blog readers.

A Month into Summer Break

 

It is almost a month into our summer break with two months of summer break left.  As always, I will spend less time on writing or logging into my blog and spend more time with my kids.  This year, we are doing something a little bit different for our kids.  Instead of enrolling them in the summer care for the entire summer, my husband and I have been taking a week off from work to drive our kids to the summer camp location, so they can take advantage of the summer camps.  Our kids have attended the one-week-long Lego Robotics program and have just finished the one-week-long Camp Invention.  The Lego Robotics program was only about 3 hours a day, so we spent the afternoon playing sand in the beach, riding bikes in the park and venturing to the library.  My kids really enjoyed attending Camp Invention and had asked to attend it next year again.  As full-time working parents, we do not have the luxury to take too much time off in the summer to drive our kids to the camps as it will cut into our ability to take family vacation.  Our kids are now back to the regular summer care.  We will be taking a family vacation in August.  In late August, our kids will attend a Science camp.  I hope that they will enjoy the Science Camp as they did with Camp Invention.  Next year, I am planning to look up information around Music camp.  It might help boost my daughter's interest in playing violin.

Hi, I am back from vacation.  I have been in Taiwan for almost a month.  The trip was pleasant but some of the phenomenon we saw was quite disturbing especially in the younger generation around the age of 18 and 40, which makes us question if we should shorten our visits in the future.  I am still contemplating if I should write about what we saw.  Anyway, we were able to visit Alishan while we were there this time.  We have been discouraged by our family members to pay a visit to the place in the past because of the notorious Chinese tourists.  We were lucky that there were no Chinese tourists there this time until we got off the mountain.  It was great to get away from the heat for a few days.  We love the tea and the tea owner of 阿里山日出商 (嘉義縣阿里山鄉中正村32) I will write about our stay in Taiwan when I have time.  I am still trying to recover from the jet lag and stay awake at work.  So if you don't hear from me, it is because I am still feeling fatigued from the trip. 

 

By the way, the majority of our stay was at Le Meridian Taipei (台北寒舍艾美酒店 http://www.lemeridien-taipei.com/) in the center of Taipei Singyi District where Shin Kong Misukoshi and Taipei 101 are located.  The amenities of the hotel are great.  I would recommend staying at this hotel if you plan to visit Taipei.

As summer approaches, I will become extremely busy, taking vacations, working on project implementation or engaging in outdoor activities.  If you have any question for me, expect longer than usual time from me to respond.  I will always get back to you, but don't be surprised if it takes me more than 20 days to get back to you.

Now, I am really mad.  It was a coincidence that I found someone posting some of my poem translations on his blog without my permission.  At a social networking site, he asked to be my friend.  Out of curiosity, I checked out his blog entries and found out that he had posted my poem translations without my permission and taking credit for my work.  All my articles are copyrighted.  I would like to state for the last time.  Please do not copy and paste any of my articles.  Please remove all my articles from any of your blog.  If you trully like my articles and want to share with everyone, please just provide link to my blog.  My blog address is http://elisaenglish.pixnet.net/blog.  I will take legal actions if necessary. 

  

I do not appreciate people copying and pasting my articles.

If you live in the US, you should be receiving 2010 US Census Form shortly.  As an advocate for our TAAMN (Taiwanese American Association in Minnesota), I would like to urge you to write down “TAIWANESE” in item #9 on the 2010 US Census form. 

 

These are some interesting statistics provided by the Taiwanese American Heritage Week.

Hi,

I am in the process of consolidating my blogs, so in the next few days, you will see articles relating to translations showing up on this blog.  I usually post translations of long articles on the other blog.  However, it is getting harder to manage blogs on similar subjects.

My Writing Style

You might have noticed that I use more of a colloquial style when writing journals.  They were not written with traditional grammar in mind.  With book review, I tend to use more complicated sentences as a way to show you the different styles of writing.  As for topics on grammar, I usually pay more attention on the sentence structure and words I use to follow more strict grammar rules.
