Please list any ten sports or exercises of your choosing.
Provide the most appropriate verb for each sport. (do,play,go, practice or others)
Then, provide the most suitable location for each sport.  (Feel free to be creative.)
See page 24 in your textbook for more ideas or refer to my handout.

II What is a sport, exercise or activity that you enjoy playing or watching. 
Example:
"I enjoy playing and watching tennis and table tennis. I always look forward to watching
the four Grand Slam events.  (Australian, French, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.) 
Also, I practice playing table tennis about three times a week. 
Racquet sports are my favorites, but I also love swimming. I wish that I could swim
every day. Especially, in the ocean. :) I love body surfing!"
III List four adverbs of frequency and make a complete sentence with each one. 
빈도 부사 예 문장
1 always  (항상(恒常)) I always get up at 7a and get ready for school. 
2 usually, often (자주) On Sundays, I usually relax and watch television. 
3 sometimes (때때로) Sometimes, I study chess games with my friends.

You may list more adverbs for bonus points. 
Please see my handout. 
IV Complete the following sentence: "How often do you ____________________?"
Then, provide a complete answer to the question. 
This item has two parts. 
Please fill in the blank :   "How often do you ____________________?"
Please fill in the blank with anything you want …
Then provide a detailed answer for your question. 
Example:
How often do you check your email?
"Personally, I think it's important for me to check my email every day. 
I often get news, reports, assignments and questions."
So, I should check my email on a regular basis. 
In addition, I always make it a point to reply to my email.
That is just common courtesy."
V Provide the present participle [현재(現在) 분사(分詞)] for fifteen verbs:
Please remember the three basic rules for making the present participle:
1) Just add -ing.
2) Drop the "e" and then add -ing.
3) Double the consonant. (자음(子音)) Then add -ing. 
Infinitive - 부정사(不定詞) Present Participle
1 laugh laughing
2 have having
3 run running
VI Complete the sentence. Use the present continuous form of the verb in parentheses.
(현재시제 - 진행형)
The rule is as follows: 
Use the verb, "to be" (present tense) + the present participle. 
Here is an example:
What _____ you ___________ in school? (study)
Answer: What are you studying in school?
VII What are some activities that you do every day or almost every day?
Please refer to page 30 in your textbook for some examples. 
Here is an example:
"Almost every day, I watch something on TV. It might be the news or just something fun. 
Also, I try to write something significant every day. It might be just email, a report, 
or a personal project. I should exercise every day, but sometimes, I just don't have time."
VIII What are some things that you never do?
Advice: Think of some things that you never do. 
Example: "I never drive in Seoul. The traffic is always horrible, so I would rather take
public transportation. Driving in traffic makes me nervous and uncomfortable. 
I never lie to my friends. I don't ever want to hurt their feelings. If I do, it is unintentional. "
I never go to bars. I just don't feel comfortable there. 
I never take the subway. It's always crowded and I can never find a seat." :)
IX What do you most enjoy doing in your free time? 
Basically, what do you do for fun?
Example: "In my free time, I enjoy studying different subjects. I do a lot of writing.
I like to make videos and send them to my family. I enjoy reading but I prefer to write.
I do play a variety of sports and on occasion and I play computer or video games. 
Sometimes, I surf the Internet for information and fun. 
On occasion, I will try to cook. I do enjoy exploring new things and I try to learn something 
new every day."
X How was the weather yesterday? (Past tense of be)
This is a very simple question. I would like for you to use at least one sentence using 
the past tense of the verb, "to be." For example:
"Yesterday, the sun was shining. The temperature was pleasant. It wasn't raining.
This is a nice time of the year for weather. Sadly, I don't like the yellow dust. 
This is a bad time of the year for 황사(黃砂).
It is not good for your health. Otherwise, the weather was very nice."
XI Briefly define the following weather terms:
I will give you a list of ten terms for weather conditions. 
Please see your handout for suggested definitions in English. 
You may receive additonal points for original answers. 
Hint: Do a little bit of research and find some alternative definitions in English 
for each of the terms. 
XII How would you describe your cell phone manners and habits? 예의(禮儀) / 습관(習慣)  
You may refer to your textbook or get some ideas from our class discussion. 
Here is an example:
"I always try to be polite when I use my phone. I realize that it may be rude to use your
phone in certain places. I always have my phone placed on "quiet mode" (vibrate) except 
when I am at home. Actually, I don't have my phone on when I am with other people in 
a social situation. I think that is a little bit rude."
In any case, describe your own personal phone manners and habits whether they are 
good or bad. 
What are your plans for summer vacation? 여름방학 계획(計劃)
XIII Even though this was one of your homework assignments, it should be easy enough to 
provide a concise answer for this question. I am really interested in your ideas and plans. 
In fact, maybe you have some nice recommendations for me.
