I can’t bear staying with a little child. Last week my aunty Laura had to go out for an emergency and she can’t take her two-year old baby girl Lucy out with her and asked my mother and I to shoulder the responsibility of a babysitter. My mother was occupied with cooking and housework. So, I had to look after her by myself. Her rosy and chubby face was cute, so I poked it now and then. Unexpectedly, I overexerted it a little and she began to cry. Hearing this, my mom shouted at me and scolded me to calm her down. I patted her back and murmured stupid comforting words to her. However, she didn’t stop crying. Then I gave her a toy doll to play with her, she didn’t even look at me at all. Perhaps she recognized the unfamiliar environment and began to look for her mother, she cried more loudly. It upset me. I passed her feeding bottle; she took it and threw it onto the ground. I was very angry with that but I couldn’t say anything since she couldn’t understand it at all. Then my mom came and held her up; she began to stop crying gradually.
I felt frustrated to babysit a young child. As a child, he or she could not understand you at all for reasonable causes. As if you’re governed by him or her because you need to care his or her feelings all the time. It makes me feel tired and annoyed. But I could imagine how our parents got through those days when we are young children.

Well when I was in college, I chose a course named Tourism Interpretation. This was a great course. It was taught in English by Mrs. Yang, a very nice middle-aged lady. In each class we would learn about a relic site or an antique. It usually started by learning about the relative English terms and then learned about its history. We benefited a lot from the class, and I still remembered one particular class that I enjoyed a lot. Unlike the usual classes taken in classroom, we actually had a site tour of a relic site named Banpo Museum. The Banpo Site exhibits many relics of Yangshao Culture dating back to 6,000 years ago. At that time, people living here used tools made primarily of wood and stone.
Before we had the class, Mrs. Yang divided us into five different groups, with one leader elected in each group. We were given different topics and we were asked to do research about the topic, such as what the totem on the ware means. When we arrived at the place, we need to present the English introduction right beside the relic. Mrs. Yang would make a summary after we completed each introduction, pointing out mistakes and adding more information. It was a real visual impact since we stood right beside the relic rather than looking at pictures like we usually did. It was a special English class that I could never forget.
