I was so excited when I got The UOS Times for the first time. I worried about what part I should read first and anxious whether I could read it all. But I finished reading all the articles, getting absorbed in them so I did not notice the time passing. I didn’t think the articles were boring at all and there was such a variety of compositions.
I agree with the writer of the “Reader’s Essay”. We do not make enough effort to help people to get used to reading when they are young and there are parents and teachers who don’t let their kids read. I was also deeply hurt by a teacher who told me that if there was time to read, I should study instead. University is very important in our society, but if we rethink about what is the proper aim of education, would our prejudices against reading disappear?
“Click Here” was a very interesting section. It helped people in real life. Moreover, it was a very attractive, novel and unique article. I found the article was different from other articles that only introduced common sites and so it showed the reporter’s viewpoint. It helped me a lot.
“Look at Us” awoke my interest in its story about foreign students. I have met an international visitor through my friend who worked as a helper during this summer. I felt out of place at first so I could not speak. But as time went by, I talked with gestures. It was really exciting. It remained in my memory until now and if I helped them myself for half a month, it would be an even better experience.
Reading The UOS Times was an extraordinary experience for me, because I usually think that all newspapers have boring and serious articles. And this is the start of my getting closer to English. Moreover, if my own writing is carried in The UOS Times, it will be something pleasant to look back on.
