Hello.

I hope this text message finds you well.

Here is the announcement of the latter half activity on April 21.

Genre : discussion

Title : About Face

North Korean leader Kim John Un , last year, successfully , launched ICBMs and declared his country a nuclear state.

This year , however , he did an about-face on his declaration.

US President Donald Trump warned , last year , that North Korea would be met with " fire and fury like the world has never seen ".
And talking to Kim John Un is ' a waste of time'.

This year , however , he also did an about-face : he is planning to meet Kim.

We are talking about what will actually happen .

I hope you will enjoy it.

This is an announcement about my practice on 2018-04-28.

Genre: Speaking / Reading
Title: Lies a part of human nature
Please read the following passage in advance.

Everyone lies. In fact, research shows that in the average ten-minute conversation, two acquaintances will lie several times. The reason? The mixed messages everyone receives as children might be one reason. Although we are told never to lie, we see our parents lie about Santa Claus or the death of a pet. Parents say "thank you" when receiving a gift, even when it's unwanted.
Psychologist Paul Ekman explains that we lie for many reasons. For example, we lie to stay out of trouble, to feel better about ourselves, to receive a reward, to protect someone, or to control information. Everything from an exaggeration to a small lie falls into one of these categories.
A New Year's resolution can also be considered a lie, because we generally don't plan to keep the promise. We have only deceived ourselves. Or how about when a friend or colleague asks, "How are you? That person doesn't want to hear that you're tired, overworked, or have other problems. We lie and say "I'm fine" because of social rules. Although lies are an important part of society, we can only catch a lie about fifty percent of the time. Some experts suggest that lies actually hold society together.

I want you to think about lies. What are lies? What are they like?
