I’m happy that I successfully made a breakthrough to speak English loudly in front of strangers.

Speaking in public especially when the audiences are not familiar to me always makes me uncomfortable and nervous. In such a situation, I tend to speak faster and faster so that no one could understand me at last. And it makes me feel even more awful when they say “Pardon?”

In the coffee house this evening, the organizers prepared lots pieces of colorful paper, several scissors and bottles of glue for us. The activity was “making your own flag of colors and shapes you like, and telling others what they represent”.

I made my flag with a piece of grown paper as background and put a red, top pointing arrow with a black handle in the center. It was simple with just three different colored shapes, because I always believe that simple is best. The background color is the color of earth which stands for the solid ground we all need to do anything great. Only with step-by-step and concentrated work can we make this. The black-handled arrow means it is unavoidable to pass some dark time before we get to the top and the red color shows we need enthusiasm to get through it.

Because my simple design, I finished my flag quite early. Thus I had a longer time to prepare for the open mic time. When it started, I put up my hand in the first time and won a chance to talk about my flag in the front. Though not speaking fluently, I did make a true breakthrough and gladly got a ticket for the next time’s coffee house (which means I do not have to get there early and wait in line before it starts).

I’ll try to do better next time.

(Any criticisms or suggestions are is welcome.)

    随便改改,见笑了。

    Because of/Thanks to my simple design, I finished my flag quite easily, and I won myself longer time to prepare for the open mic time. When it started, I was the first to raise my hand and got the chance to introduce my flag in the front of the room.

    另,最后一句的criticism似乎不可数。
