In this presentation, we will be discussing English rhetoric in professional writing.
English for Presentations

All presentations have a common objective. People give presentations because they want to
communicate in order to:

              inform
              train
              persuade
              sell

    A successful presentation is one of the most effective ways of communicating your message. And
    because English is so widely used in international business, a working knowledge of the vocabulary
    and techniques used in an English language presentation is a valuable asset. preparation equipments delivery
    *** language: simplicity and
    *** Structure of presentation Review

    Can you name the 3 most important things when giving any presentation?
    1. Toyota sold two million cars last year. (simple)
    2. Two million cars were sold by Toyota last year.

tell your audience what the structure of your presentation will be. You might say something like

"I'll start by describing the current position in Europe. Then I'll move on to some of the
achievements we've made in Asia. After that I'll consider the opportunities we see for further
expansion in Africa. Lastly, I'll quickly recap before concluding with some recommendations."

When you finish Europe and want to start Asia, you might say:

"That's all I have to say about Europe. Let's turn now to Asia."

When you have finished Africa and want to sum up, you might say:

"Well, we've looked at the three continents Europe, Asia and Africa. I'd like to sum up now."

Group 2 Arrivals B There are only two members in this group. Although they have prepared
much about etiquettes of greeting upon arrivals, it is not enough. More drills on the dialogues
between business people, friends, relatives, passengers and clerk, and strangers as well as
announcements and describing sequence through the passport control, the custom, luggage,
the exit are to be learned. Also, Lily needs someone to listen to her reading and correct her

Group 6 Getting a Job A-- -- sufficient and effective--Within such a short time with PPT pictures
and vivid outlines this group focuses on
ways on getting for a job (newspapers, friends, Internet, 104/111 Human resources, summit
personal data to companies )
Dress codes What to were and what not to wear
The interview, Before the interview, Do’s and Don’ts at the interview

Question: How to prepare and do the interview to get a good result
Prepare a resume now to show your background, education and experience, special techniques with
computer, excellent in speaking, writing, and second foreign languages, an honor student, volunteer
service, etc.

Comments: Some sample resumes, cover letter, i-resume, to show to the audience could be
encouraging for the audience to try to prepare their own resumes and to find out what life
experiences they need to keep a good record. More discussion can be about some ideal future jobs
and the ways to get them.

Group 4 Marriage Counseling A—Curt and his group did a very good example using this topic.
They did not use ppt this time, but they wrote the key issues and given proper directions for
class discussion. Cultural, educational backgrounds are considered as important as attitudes
towards money, life style, and value. Communication, rational attitude and care are the best
ways to improve relations in marriage.
Counseling is important in marriage and education. Do not try to give advice to a friend who
suffers mentally and emotionally. Recommend them to the counseling center for further
counseling sessions. We are no professional regarding counseling. Sometimes we might ruin
their relation no matter how hard we have tried.

Group 1 Earth Day A Group 1 did a very good job of bringing up a video for opening, followed
by Grace’s clear summary of the interview which carried out the main interests of main
problems that concern mother earth. Then, the outline is clear and high-lighted by awesome
pictures. Terms were introduced.

More interaction can be arranged and global warming issues can be stressed too.

Group 5 Call-In. You’re on the Air. B+ Group 5 arranged a performance to demonstrate the
good and bad ways of language used when call-in to talk about issues or problems. They can
be more focus on the way people deal with problems. In the unit, one complained about roads
under construction. He found that in his neighborhood there isn’t an alternative route for him
to drive because all are under repaired, Another person complained the fire chief being
moved away. Still another complained about the sanitation trucks coming at mid-night. It is
annoying when people are sleeping.

Are there required courses needed for seniors in our department? If yes, what would it be?

Group 3 Making a Complaint


Topics for Cb Daily Presentation 1

Group 1 Arrivals A-- This group under the leading of Sephiroth provided drills based on the
text dialogues. Their demo of drills involved simple and complicated dialogues. Dialogue drills
are complicated because in a role play one has to change to meet the part he or she plays.
Greeting someone, a guide, who comes for reception, involving in conversation that may take
place in the railway station or at the airport, going through the custom upon arrival.

Group 5 Getting a Job A-- Jeff and Jason and their group worked out a very suitable ppt map
with impressive visual aids. Their introduction clearly focused on the human power resources
from Internet and newspapers. They also provided a resumé sample. Only that they did not
mention the cover letter. They did not ask for sharing and interaction. It could be better if all
the members speak up in turns.

Group 3 Marriage Counseling A—A variety of demo with videos and examples from our
society to bring about the topic. The details about the reasons that the couple argues about
could be mentioned to the audience. Is it better that the couple goes to counseling together
but in different session? If they go in one by one alone, they can be honest with the counselor.
Try to say “I Love You” everyday is boring but interesting to young couple. Husband should
take care of the financial part is true if the other stays at home. What is in a marriage promise?
How long does love last? 3 or 4 years. Then how can a couple keep hold on to a marriage that
lasts the rest of life? Would you like to go to a counselor if you need one? How is your parents’
marriage? Are they model couples? What tradition do they usually do?

Group 4 Inside Story B++—Clear about the story and performance, but relatively short.

Someone reads the news.       A general account of the kidnapping should be given as a
summary that gives the main trait. Billy Simpson was lucky to play and the kidnappers hurt
themselves. Finally they gave up the kidnapped by turning him to the police. How do people
usually do in our society when kidnap happens? Do they turn to the policeman for help? Or
they would rather help themselves because they might be threatened if they turn to the police,
the victim would be killed. How to protect the young from being kidnapped?

Do you like to read story about this? Social column is full of tragedy of this kind. What can we
or the government do about it?

Group 6 Earth Day B++ The showing of a video program about animals collecting food for the
winter failed because the notebook in class does not support the format the student used. We
learned to see the video voiceless and the presenters gave the overall of the story to class.
They presented each problem by performance and we learned to pay attention to the key
problems the presenters brought up for discussion.

Group 2 Call-In. You’re on the air. A—This group did the call-in in class, but they did not
discuss with class as a whole. The problems about constructions on different routes at the
same time, fire chief being close down, sanitation trucks come in at midnight. I then asked
more questions further. Whether it is good to work for the government, questions for school,
being an anchor, how school can be improved, etc. are given to know more of students’

Group 4 World Fairs A ~Curt begins with his charismatic opening and introduction to hook everybody’s attention.

We learn from this session what were the World Fairs and where were they held as to what were the main thematic

pavilion of each fair. This is a wise topic for people to know what each period of time humans are working on in the

world. It serves as a media that connects those in the past, the present and the future together for future

generations to know about us and the world. The terms of the thematic world fair are worthy of notice because we
may trace the significance of each term and see how the other nations worked in support of the Expo.
Do you see any possibility that Taiwan may host a world fair? (Curt: yes. We have Kaohsiung and Taipei where the
world athletic games and deaflympic games were held. It’s possible we may be able to hold one in the future.)

What merchandise do you think we may have to sell like Hai Bo in World Fair?

What are some significant impacts on world economics and cultures from world fairs?
If you represent Taiwan, what do you want to exhibit in the 21 World Fairs?   Expo

various large public exhibitions held since the mid-19th century. They are the third largest event in
the world in terms of economic and cultural impact after the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic
List of world's fairs
The largest "nation branding" competition in the world is slated to take place in China's financial
hub beginning next May.

Competition is stiff, with host China an early favourite and the U.S., surprisingly, not. Countries
such as Spain, the Netherlands, Denmark and even Canada are expected to be very much in
The competition is known as Expo 2010, but don't let the name fool you.
World Expositions have changed a lot since that magical summer in Montreal 42 years ago.
They have morphed away from the grand themes and beyond the architectural competition between
Buckminster Fuller's Geodesic Dome and Moshe Safdie's Habitat '67.
Which country serves the best food and puts on the best show is still of concern, but mostly
because it creates a buzz and that, in turn, might spark an interest among visitors that eventually
may translate into business deals, investment and tourist dollars.
When a reporter asked Christer Stenmark, chief architect of the Swedish pavilion, how he would
judge Sweden's success in Shanghai, he said bluntly: "Our goal is not to have the most visitors, but
to have the right visitors."

The $45-million Canada pavilion was designed by Montreal's Cirque du soleil.

Group 3 Cirque du Soleil 太陽劇團 A—Good pictures, no course title, no reference. The group thought that Cirque

du Soleil is the most interesting Circus in the world.

Are they successful all the time? Can we see it now? Where?

How do they recruit the performers? How are the performers trained with all those acrobatic feats—flying, rolling,

performing with rings so daring and exaggerating? Who created music?
Do you like to see circus? Why?

Do you think a circus troupe can make money? If you were the manager, would you want to invest with the money

or save it for the future?

Do you dare to try swallowing fire? A few parents charged on a cram school for training students to build up

confidence by forcing children to swallow fire. Do you see any precautions being taken? For instance, explaining to

both children and their parents what they are doing, how to do as not to hurt but build up confidence and what

steps do they do to prevent and guarantee not to harm the body at all. Then let them choose to do or not to do it.

There are always tears behind the smile.

Why do you want to introduce this circus? Compare with other cultural activities what significant meaning regarding

human life can we see in circus?

What circus do we have in Taiwan?

Delirium (Arena show): it was a multimedia/theatrical production that features remixes of existing
Cirque music and reinterpretations of performances. This show was choreographed by So You
Think You Can Dance's Mia Michaels.
DELIRIUM depicts the quest for balance in a world that is increasingly out of sync with reality.
The arena production centers around a character named Bill, an ordinary man who lives inside a
bubble, a recluse in a society where even relationships are “virtual,” and where television and
computers have become ubiquitous (present everywhere at the same time) devices that isolate us
from one another. Everything in Bill’s urban life further draws him into an imaginary, virtual
world. On his journey he meets myriad characters that bring him little by little on the cusp (pointed
end where two curves meet) of growth and change. He eventually learns to ground his energy into
the real world. At the end of his voyage, Bill contaminates the people of his planet and enlists them
in his quest for balance. The subtext of DELIRIUM is the notion that in life, we must join together
to escape our solitary cocoons in order to survive.

Alegría: the show's main theme is about the abuse of power and the subsequent struggle for

Group 2 Deaflympics 聽障奧運會 B+ PPT shouldn’t have lots of words on one page. The presentation only has two
presenters. It is not easy to gather so much information and to introduce what happened in Taipei unless you go to
an English web page for information.
Thousand hands of the Goddess of Mercy displayed a Chinese cultural tradition asking for piety, order and rhythm
in this performance. In the TV ads Mr. Ang shows his encouraging words for the deaf people to have courage no
matter one has hearing impairment. This power in me is a strong belief worthy of propagating to everybody. The
main purpose is to never give up. The opening and the closing ceremonies were full of wonderful performances
which consisted of 5% people from deaf community.

I asked Victor if he has the chance to choose if he would like to be blind or deaf. He said he would like to see the

I think to be able to host deaflympics is not easy. It needs money and people in support of the games. The

The design of the emblem for the 21st Summer Deaflympics Taipei 2009 incorporates the
following three elements: the Chinese character for north "bei" representing the host city Taipei, an
ear representing the Deaflympics, and a figure representing the athletes. These three elements come
together to form simple, flowing calligraphic lines that create a sense of dashing forward, while
cleverly evoking the image of a running man. This lively emblem symbolizes Taiwan’s undying
vitality as well as the courageous spirit of deaf athletes as they meet the challenges of competition.

mascot the lively Taipei green tree frog; its ability to jump long distances; it has impressed the
world with its economic power, springing to new heights. The banyan leaf worn by the male
mascot and the azalea flower on the female are respectively the Taipei city tree and flower. They
symbolize the city's vision of a fresh and environment-friendly future. The mascots have their arms
wide open, in a pose that looks like the Chinese character for north “bei”, which represents the
host city, Taipei. With open arms and cheerful smiles, Taipei enthusiastically welcomes
participants coming from every part of the world!

submit a bidding application, with endorsement letters from its national sport authority (i.e.
National Council on Physical Fitness and Sports), National Olympic Committee (i.e. Chinese
Taipei Olympic Committee), and the host city government (i.e. Taipei City Government).
One month after submission of its application, Chinese Taipei Sport Association for the Deaf
learned that Athens, Greece is also bidding for the hosting right.
President John Lovett arrived in Taipei on November 24, 2002. During Mr. Lovett’s one-week
stay in Taipei, Chinese Taipei Sport Association for the Deaf gave him multimedia presentations,
and visited all recommended venues under guidance of staff of Taipei City Stadium Administration.
Mr. Lovett applauded the well-organized programme and hospitality arranged all by deaf people.
Following the presentation, the Chinese Taipei Delegation hosted all participants with a dinner, and
offered them souvenir packs, which included promotional brochure, tourist information, illustrated
brochure on Taiwan sign language, mascot, Polo shirt, pin etc. that proved to be favorites among
the participants.
The day of February 28 was the day for final decision. Everyone felt nervous. Nevertheless, the
website of the Congress released encouraging media coverage of the 4 interviews with delegates
from 4 countries who strongly supported the Chinese Taipei Delegation. Before voting, the Athens
Delegation and the Chinese Taipei Delegation (chaired by Secretary General Chao) each gave 20
minutes of final presentation. The vote-casting started when all members stopped asking questions.
With 84 effective votes, Chinese Taipei Delegation won 52 votes, while Athens received 32. All
our efforts over the last year finally paid off. wiki The opening ceremony

Group 6 World Festival B+ This group introduced 5 places with carnivals and festivals –Brazil, Italy, Canada,

France and Germany.

If you can wear a mask without having to do makeup, will you do that? What kind of masque? We do not know

exactly what this group is going to present until today.

We should look into the cultures and spirits of those colorful festivals. When does each take place? Should we

choose the festive days to travel in those countries? What are the most benefits that these festivals may come up

with? What festivals in Taiwan do you like to introduce to foreigners? Why? Mid-autumn Festival

1. The Lady - Chang Er , The Man - Wu Kang, 3.The Hare - Jade Rabbit, Moon Cake

Festival of Lights
The festival of lights is celebrated throughout the country on Amavasya, the darkest night of the
month at the end of Ashwin or the beginning of Kartik. Ashwin and Kartik are the months in the
Hindu calendar that correspond to days in the months of September, October and November in the
Roman calendar.

Group 5 Facebook B+-- Late in turning it in. It’s better to give it to me before presentation. It has the PowerPoint out

line and vivid pictures, but I can’t see the part Frank involves into as news about using Facebook. Those news are

interesting though. Victor shows his confident speaking manner, but he uses his notes with hands. He claims that

he wrote those notes by himself. His ways of paving the ways about the history sounds interesting. Playing games

is time-consuming. Frank gathered lots of news related. He needs more eye contact and visual aids to help the

audience. It’s important that Twitter and Facebook aid small firms. I may use Facebook to promote my book too.

Facebook is ambitious to bring together opposing sides in some of the most bitterly divided areas of the world,
encouraging online friendship between Jews and Muslims, US liberals and conservatives, and Turks and Greeks.

What other effective functions can Facebook add to it’s domain for the users except using it for social interests,

games, small business, and sharing images, life, ideas?

If you are to use Facebook or Twitter, what will you use it for?

Do you think employees tend to be lazy when they become a Facebook user?
How do we distinguish whether the page is real or fake?

a global social networking website that is operated and privately owned by Facebook, Inc. Mark
Zuckerberg founded Facebook with his college roommates and fellow computer science students
Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes while he was a student at Harvard
University. Facebook has met with some controversy. It has been blocked intermittently in several
countries including Syria, China and Iran. It has also been banned at many places of work to
discourage employees from wasting time using the service. Privacy has also been an issue, and it
has been compromised several times. Facebook settled a lawsuit regarding claims over source code
and intellectual property.
A January 2009 study ranked Facebook as the most used social network by
worldwide monthly active users, followed by MySpace.
The media often compare Facebook to MySpace, but one significant difference between the two
websites is the level of customization. MySpace allows users to decorate their profiles using HTML
and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), while Facebook only allows plain text.

Facebook has a number of features with which users may interact. They include the Wall, a space
on every user's profile page that allows friends to post messages for the user to see, Pokes, which
allows users to send a virtual "poke" to each other (a notification then tells a user that they have
been poked), Photos, where users can upload albums and photos, and Status, which allows users to
inform their friends of their whereabouts and actions.
News Feed, a blogging feature that allowed tags and embeddable images, photos, Gifts, "Facebook
Beta", a significant redesign of its user interface on selected networks

It’s said that a 2003 file can be used with 2007 version.
Today, there was much delay because Chris was late. We then asked group 1 to do the first session, but they

found out that the ppt they worked out with 2007 does open in 2003. Sephiroth went to other place to open and

Group 2 Up 皮克斯最新動畫[天外奇蹟] B+ Script not ready for me, The animation is shortly presented

with segments and simple plot focused on the Disney animation Up. With three questions relating to
what dream the main character has had and not yet carried out with his wife, whether it is better to hold
on to the memory in the past or to get better chance for the present, and to continue or give up the
dream not yet completed? Good questions, but a bit short.
What past memory does the old man have? His wife got ill and passed away, leaving a common will

What can you do with Up in teaching kids except simple language? To do things that he has not done
yet. It will never be too late.
What dream do you have for the future? Janet: To earn a lot of money and purchase a house. Ho:

Group 1 Internet Addiction A--    Script is not complete yet.. It’s a thorough study and complete introduction to the

Internet Addiction with good pictures, introduction of problems and possible solutions to them. I can hardly find

fault with this group. The only shortfall is the lack of eye contact. But in dialogues, they do have eye contact often

only with each other. The three ads are interesting selling method to spread the use of e-shopping, especially the

a philosophical conclusion too.

Sephiroth is quite good in organizing everything and drawing a thoughtful conclusion. When he said that we should

think about whether the Internet offering too much of good thing is really good for all of us who use the service.” He
pointed out that ‘too much of anything is good for nothing.’ This kind of a reverse way of thinking is philosophical

Group 3 Global Warming A—This topic is often discussed among people and administrators. Group 3 has their

original way of waking up the audience’s conscience to live fully aware of the importance in sustainability of our

environment. Their attitude is sincere and serious. It has vivid pictures and outlines, with evidence to show effects

and stress on the solution that one can do early on. No reference was attached at the end of the script.

For More on Global Warming
See EcoBridge's Video There is a lot to do. Wild fire.
There's a Lot You Can Do One of the most vital responsibilities our representatives in public office
have is to protect our children, grand-children and future generations from damage to the
environment they will inherit. Tips on Cutting Energy Use: Compact fluorescent bulbs. When
replacing home appliances, use energy efficient models. For example, replacing an old refrigerator
using 320 watts with a new one using 85 watts could make a big difference. Use cars and light
trucks that get good gas mileage. Choose a company that offers for homes electricity generated by
renewable energy sources. Help promote community carpooling. Promote the construction of bike
lanes. Place an insulating cover around water heater. Insulate walls and ceilings, and lower heating
bills. Choose double pane windows. A car needs only about 2 minutes to warm up. Take public
transit whenever possible. When shopping for groceries, bring your own cloth bag to the market.
Evidence of Global Warming
Present Danger of Global Warming Haines      mentioned that small shifts in temperatures, for instance,
could extend the range of mosquitoes that spread malaria. Water supplies could be contaminated by
floods, for instance, which could also wash away crops. Dr. Thomas Karl, director of the National
Climatic Data Center (NOAA), says that global warming has produced an increase in precipitation
during the 20th century, mostly in the form of heavy rainstorms, little in moderate, beneficial
rainstorms. weather-related natural disasters (floods, storms, droughts, fires) worldwide. In June,
2003, 1700 people died during a heat wave that hit India, while 35,000 Europeans died in a heat
wave the following August. Islands are Endangered by Rising Seas.
Future Threat of Global Warming
Causes of Global Warming
Positive Feedback Loops Asglobal warming worsens and temperatures rise, the forests become more
stressed and susceptible to fire, pests and diseases. This in turn may cripple temperate forests'
ability to absorb carbon dioxide. As increasing temperatures enable bark beetles to survive winters
in greater numbers, their growing presence will lead to a greater capacity to kill more trees.

Group 4 Khalil Fong’s Classical Songs A—This group introduces the young singer and song writer focusing on

classical songs he sings. The comparison can go further in distinguishing the two singers or by pointing out how

Fong interprets this or that song. In what ways he was influenced? When you are talking about a song lyric, it’s

better that you point out the choice of words in it. Conclusion is entertaining rather than strong. I’d like if you predict
a little abut Fong’s future in this career.

His career and popularity was first grown in Taiwan because he sings more in Mandarin rather than in Cantonese.

D'Angelo, Steely Dan, NERD
Although based in Hong Kong, his career and popularity was first grown in Taiwan. This is
because his songs are sung in Mandarin rather than Cantonese. When asked, Khalil explained that
Mandarin was his second language, next to English, and that he could express himself better in
Mandarin rather than Cantonese.

The True Story of the Real Brothers Grimm
Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm born in January 4, 1785, in Hanau, Germany

brother Wilhelm Carl Grimm, In 1802, Jacob went to university to study law at the University of

Marburg. As always, his little brother followed him, and entered law school in 1803.

During their university years they began to collect folk and fairy tales. Grimms were especially

interested in stories that included Germany and German culture.
“Children’s and Household Tales” - in 1812

“Grimm’s Fairy Tales”,

Grimm fairy tales include stories of kings, magic, and talking animals. Even though the stories are
sometimes scary, fairy tales allow us to work through our fears. They often teach us a lesson about
moral values, and right and wrong.

The influence of these books
The Nazis praised them as folkish tales showing children with sound racial instincts seeking
racially pure marriage partners, and so strongly that the Allied forces warned against them
influenced other collectors
both inspiring them to collect tales and leading them to similarly believe, in a spirit of romantic
nationalism, that the fairy tales of a country were particularly representative of it, to the neglect of
cross-cultural influence.

Hans Christian Andersen was Danish. He was born in Odense, Denmark, almost 2 centuries ago on

This is a brief introduction of the musicals which the western culture expresses humanitarian
concerns to the most, including the happiness and sadness of cats in personification, one who
suffers the poverty should confront cruel political confinement without charitable concerns
from the ruling power, the loving power which gives humans great impacts. Kerry used sign
post to show us what to expect next. Molly’s part in introducing Do you hear the people Sing
lyric sounds like something urgent that people needed for a change. Ivy’s introducing Miss
Saigon was fluent. What we look into the presentation is the main spirit the musicals hope to
bring to their audience. Students from my former class once put up the stage performance on
Phantom of the Opera. Kevin one of the students loves to play so much that he put off one
year to graduate. He finally made it to graduate school at Tsing Hua University and wrote his
thesis on some French playwright.

all-dancing show makes for a great, toe-tapping night out!

Les Miserables     This international award-winning musical sweeps its audience through an epic tale of passion

and destruction, against the backdrop of a nation in the grip of revolution. A spectacular adaptation of Victor Hugo's

masterpiece, it continues to thrill audiences night after night.

The Lion King Tickets      The award-winning adaptation of Disney's film features music by Elton John and Tim Rice,

plus outstanding costumes and special effects. Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains to the evocative

The Phantom of the Opera Andrew Lloyd Webber's epic musical The Phantom of the Opera tells the tale of the

phantom that terrorises the Paris Opera to make his protégé Christine the leading lady of the opera.

The Voice agrees and offers to teach her "a little bit of heaven's music."
Christine is, for a time, unable to decide between Erik and Raoul and both suitors become
increasingly jealous. Up in the rafters of the Opera, Christine tells Raoul of Erik taking her to the
cellars. Raoul promises to take Christine away where Erik can never find her; and so Raoul tells
Christine he shall act on his promise the following day, to this Christine agrees, but she pities Erik
and will not go until she has sung for him one last time.

Please study your topic thoroughly to include the world trend as your topic indicates. Do not
count on your script much. Please leave about 20 minutes for questions since we do not want
to collect questions but need the audience’s feedback. Each student is to raise at least one
question to either one of the two groups during the sessions. There is a questionnaire to be
filled out before you leave about the question you give to the presenters/debaters.

Group 4 Pets A—89~85 The script was ready as the class began. With oral introduction and
YouTube fun video and references. The video shows the violent behavior of dogs, cats
caused by their nature, such as curiosity, messy, witty, playful, etc. I wondered if they used
computer animation to produce this video. The way they arouse the audience’s care for pets
with videos sounds warm. Lines like the girl learns to care and love by keeping the pet. Life
span for a dog is about 10 years.
The introduction about top-ten dogs is interesting with pictures. Vanessa has a charming tone
while speaking. I wonder what kind of dog you would recommend to Victor, Labrador or
Golden Retriever?

This group had prepared a lot to share, but they seemed to run out of time. Altogether
it was fine. The script was kind of rushing for the presentation. [A new booklet was
turned in later with complete information.] They made props and prepared tableware
to demo and test the audience’s knowledge about setting table. The introduction and
conclusion is good. The serving part Jones gave was fine. It sounded like original with
some grammatical errors. Some tips on Chinese customs and manners are a good

Group 2 Series Serials/ Soap Opera A= 89~85****There should be course title, final
presentation, and reference added to make a good cover and complete reference. It went
smoothly and the classifying of the opera according to age was thoughtful. The voice can not
function well is not a good experience, though. I have asked the material room to check it for
us. The topic can be printed across on top without the word “Topic”. The wording for the
subtopic should be more careful. The phrase “How to make a soap opera a great success”
can do.

Serials in television and radio are series that rely on a continuing plot that unfolds in a serial
fashion, episode by episode. Serials typically follow main story arcs that span entire seasons or
even the full run of the series, which distinguishes them from traditional episodic television that
relies on more stand-alone episodes. Japanese TV Drama in Taiwan
and Audience’s Reflexivity on Personal Life by Rita

Taiwanese Drama (traditionalChinese: 台灣電視劇 commonly called TDrama or TWDrama by
fans) refers to televised dramas, similar to Western miniseries, of extended stories usually
dramatizing relationships through the general range of ten to forty one-hour episodes. They are
produced in Taiwan and have gained increasing popularity in the Mando community internationally.
Popular Taiwanese dramas generally divided into “idol dramas" (偶像劇) and Taiwanese
Minnan dramas (台語劇). "Idol dramas" use the most popular singers and actors or actresses in the
Taiwanese entertainment industry, most of whom are in their late teens or 20s.
Taiwanese idol dramas share many similarities in genre with both Japanese dramas and Korean
dramas, although they differ considerably in subject matter with Chinese dramas. For example,
dramas based on nationalist sentiment and politics are much less common.
Many popular Taiwanese dramas are based on Japanese manga, using shōjo manga.

In British television, "serial" is also synonymous with the American term "miniseries" - a short-run
series with one title and plot.

genre: the melodrama, with which it shares such features as moral polarization, strong
emotions, female orientation, unlikely coincidences, and excess. Another related genre
is the literary romance, with which it shares features such as simplified characters,
female orientation and episodic narrative.
Some media theorists distinguish between styles of TV programmes which are broadly
'masculine' or 'feminine'. Those seen as typically masculine include action/adventure
programmes and Westerns; those seen as more 'feminine' include soaps and sitcoms.
Action-adventures define men in relation to power, authority, aggression and technology.
Soap operas define women in relation to a concern with the family.

Recurrent events in soap opera include courtships, marriages, divorces, deaths and
disappearances. Gossip is a key feature in soaps (usually absent from other genres): in
part it acts as a commentary on the action. Geraghty notes that 'more frequently than
other TV genres, soaps feature women characters normally excluded by their age,
appearance or status' (1991, p. 17).

Soaps are frequently derided by some critics for being full of clichés and stereotypes,
for having shoddy sets, for being badly acted, trivial, predictable and so on. Soap
viewers (often assumed to be only women, and in particular working-class housewives)
are characterized unfairly as naive escapists.
Robert Allen (1992, p. 112) argues that to emphasize what happens when in soaps (in
semiotic terms the syntagmatic dimension) is to underestimate the equal importance of
who relates this to whom (the paradigmatic dimension). Certainly relationships are more
important than plot.

Do you agree that relationships are more important than plot?
Some feminist theorists have argued that soap operas spring from a feminine aesthetic,
in contrast to most prime-time TV. Soaps are unlike traditional dramas (e.g. sit-coms)
which have a beginning, middle and an end: soaps have no beginning or end, no
structural closure. They do not build up towards an ending or closure of meaning.
Viewers can join a soap at any point. There is no single narrative line: several stories are
woven together over a number of episodes. In this sense the plots of soaps are not linear.

Group 6 Dreamland A—~C+ 90~76 A good topic full of beautiful pictures and main ideas
about what happen in our dreams. Some words were mispronounced: average, complete,
fatigue (Ellenie); digest, use of transitional phrase, softer voice or tone (Linda); mechanism,
attacker, neglect (Joanna); femininity (Jocelyn). However, it has been a good experience to
listen to dreamland. Jennifer can make it clear to emphasize that this group is trying to explore
the scientific study of dreams known as “oneirology” which is originated from the advocate of
Marquis d’Hervey de Saint Denys. Oneirology is different from dream analysis in that the aim
is to quantitatively study the process of dreams in stead of analyzing the meaning behind
them. Timing is important.
To keep a sleepwalker safe is important because if we try to wake him/her up, we might scare
the child. Gently guide him or her back to bed is the right way. Have you ever walked in sleep?
Do you know why know? Music is helpful to calm him down and relaxes him.
Joanna’s introduction to dream symbols is interesting: Climbing, flying, falling, chasing, etc.
Jocelyn’s talk about house is interesting too.

Sleep and Dream Center What happens when we dream?
Patricia Garfield, Ph.D., is a world-renowned dream expert. She is a co-founder and former
president of the Association for the Study of Dreams (ASD). Her book, "Creative Dreaming," first
published in 1974, is considered a classic work on lucid dreaming and its updated edition remains
in print. Her other books include "Your Child's Dreams," "Women's Bodies, Women's Dreams,"
"The Healing Power of Dreams," and "The Universal Dream Key." She holds a Ph.D. in clinical
psychology from Temple University.
When we dream, our central nervous system is going into an active state, which it is does
periodically during our sleep.
heart rate, breath, muscles,
That is, men experience erection and women become more lubricated.
I describe dreaming as a three-story house. On the basement level you've got the physical changes
going on in the body, and then, on the main floor of the house, you've got these visual images,
sounds, and sometimes smells and all the other physical experiences we have in dreams that are
expressive of our emotional state, how we are psychologically at the moment.

At another level, kind of the attic, there are sometimes experiences that we can't explain in which
people connect with on another level of themselves, whether it's the spiritual or creative, or
extrasensory. We don't know how this happens, but sometimes people have very unusual
experiences in dreams, for example, a dream where someone to whom they're emotionally close
comes to say goodbye and that they love them and that that they will always be watching for them
and the person wakes up and a few hours later learns that person has died at the time of the dream.
And these are very powerful experiences for the dreamer that we can't explain in a scientifically
acceptable manner.

All of these experiences are there when we dream: the physical changes in our bodies, the
psychological expression of how we're feeling emotionally at the time of the dream, and this other
world that we sometimes seem to touch in dreams.

Why do we dream? Why did that capability evolve?

From an evolutionary point of view there have been speculations that dreams have evolved to
periodically make sure that everything is working in the central nervous system and to be alert,
alerted in a way that one could be responsive to danger in an environment.
The current thinking is that dreaming is an important component of memory and that we do know
that when people are learning new things, they take a language immersion course, for example,
dreaming literally increases. Dreaming increases when we're learning new tasks, and if we're
prevented from dreaming after we've learned something new, our memory for it is very poor. Even
if we're allowed to sleep, but our dreaming is interrupted. There is a lot of evidence now that
suggests dreaming is an important component of short-term memory. So, this is one possibility and
perhaps one that's quite important. But, the bottom line is we truly don't know why we dream.

Steven Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner
The key to ordering a good meal in a restaurant is understanding the economic incentives involved.
Ask the server what they recommend and order something else...they are probably trying to get
you to order something with a high profit margin or a dish that the restaurant needs to get rid of
before the chicken goes bad or something. Never order the second least expensive bottle of wine;
it's typically the one with the highest mark-up on the list (i.e. the worst deal).
