Please look at the Lang-8 links on the right side of this blog. Some students are doing very good work.

Today, I would like you to make a Lang-8 account and post your draft of your letter to your host family on Lang-8 so that you can get corrections.

Well, I'm an older man now.   I get up earlier so I can get a longer day.  I hope for a longer day, I suppose.

When I wake up in the morning I hope, personally, that I can put something back, that I am doing something good that will have a greater benefit for people.

I'm just hoping to make a success of my business, with my family's backing.

My greatest hope is to make this one song, (and then) one song that could change the hearts of millions of people, if not the first time but the second time they hear it.

I just hope people can learn to live in peace. I mean, there just seems to be an awful lot of hatred and wars for really no reason.

My hopes are for a return to values of fairness and equity.

My biggest hope and something that I would love to happen would be that, as a whole,  you know, humans all around the world find a way to live more in harmony with each other and with the world that we live in.
