Academic Writing

The importance influenced on me when I was a child.
My brother was an important influence to me as a child. He was very hard working on his studies and I wanted to be like him. He studies at Yarmouk, Jordan for 5 years in Bachelor of Syariah. He study hard to finish his studies and became excellent student. Now, he gets a good job. I listened to his stories and wanted to study, too. Today, I continue my study because of his influence.

Methods of learning language.
In my opinion the content- based approach method is a good way to learn English. The human brain needs to solve their problems. In a content- based approach class, students study academic material. Students learn the vocabulary and grammar necessary to the content. These strategies help students with new words, note- taking reading and writing. Students spend a lot of time in group discussion and problem solving.

-Sweet memory when I was child and parents involved with it.

When I was a child, I have many sweet memories that involved my parent’s teaching. My sweet memory when I was a child is when my parents teach me about how to wash my clothes and shoes. At the beginning, my parents wanted me to brush my clothes slowly and I do it carefully. Next, I washed my shoes and my parents still helped me until my shoes clean. It’s very difficult to do it when I was 8 years old. But I’m happy to learn a new activity and do it with myself. I will never forget this memory because it was a very sweet memory in my life and my parents always helped me if I want to do something.

When I was 10 years old, I learn a lesson about attempting new activity, riding a bicycle. I learn how to ride a bicycle about 10 to 15 minutes everyday. My brother and my sister teach me how to learn it because they used to ride a bicycle. Sometimes, I feel give up to ride a bicycle near my house.
