I'm going through a small stack of papers and found this: some new year's resolutions of some of my students. Keep in mind that I first had to teach them what a New Year's resolution is... and they may not have understood completely. These are resolutions from a few different students.
They needed to complete the sentence:
I will have put on/lost.......my pimples on my face.
I will have eaten... a lot.
I will have saved....the world.
I will have grown/shrunk...one tree banana on back house.
I will have learnt....dance
I will have forgotten...bad memory.
I will have put on/lost...to play game
I will have read....1000 comic books.
I will have grown/shrunk...many trees on my garden.
I will have saved... money and times.
I will have spent...500,000VND on clothes (this is about $25 US. I felt pretty embarrassed when I read my new year's resolutions before this and said 'I will have spent $500 on clothes--believe me, I'm going to need clothes after a year here and not buying any)
I will have walked...every morning.
I will have eaten... a lot of fruit such as tomato, durian.
PS - Karissa says: If you ever get a chance to try durian, don't. This coming from someone who has tried cow tail, pig's stomach, gilatinous cow blood, pig's feet, whole squid, whole fish, etc.
