"Comments on the course" (On September 12th)

I had two classes about speaking and reading a weak before I joined this class. I learned some phrases through two classes, but I was very worried about Academic writing. I want to be a good engineer, so have to improve my English skills; not only reading and speaking but also writing.
 In this class, I can get to know many words and phrases. I want to use these skills in the future!




Please look at "Page" and comfirm date of some homework . I forgot to apload on each days.

"What kind of errors do I often make?" (On September 12th)

I'll show these points
1 "space"

1 "space"
 I often write my review or essay like this.

   × I like watching animes.I'll introduce 5 examples.
 ○  I like watching animes.I'll introduce 5 examples.

 I didn't care about it, but realized how important "space"  is through this lecture. Thank you.

2 "positions of adverb"
 When I write an essay in English lectures, I often forget where I should put an adverb.
 This is because there are some types of adverb; fast, always, early ・・・ e.t.c
 So I read dictionary many times to write a good essay.

Translation (On September 11th) = AWU sentences

There is a strong interest in knowing how various microbial systems respond to the presence of uranium (U), largely in the context of bioremediation.
(多様な微生物機構がどれほどウランの存在にはんのうするのか知ることにとても関心がある。)
 There is no known biological role for uranium so far. Uranium is naturally present in rocks and minerals.
(今までウランの環境的役割は知られていなかった。ウランは岩石や鉱物に自然に存在している。)
 However, anthropogenic nuclearreactionprocesses over the last few decades have resulted in introduction of uranium into the environment in soluble and toxic forms.
(しかしながら、数十年にわたる人的な核反応試行は結果として溶解又は毒物状態で環境にあるウランの伝来に終わった。)
 This review focuses on the microbial responses to uranium exposure which allows the alteration of the forms and concentrations of uranium within the cell and in the local environment.
(この反省で細胞中又は周辺環境のウランの状態、集積の変化を可能とするウラン曝露への微生物の反応に焦点があてられた。)

Tornado Alley Review (On September 10th)

”Woo hoo!”Andy shouts."Look at that!I think we're going to beat it!"However,you can't beat a tornado.When it hits you,it's like being hit by a train.The sound,the power,it's too much.The world goes dark,and you don't know if you are still in the car.・Summary
 A man went to a town which is famous for tornados and met two researchers about disasters. They were going to a cornfield to watch how terrible the tornado was then. So, he helped them. But, they were involved in the storm because they were too careless of it.







・Review
 I have never undergone such a terrible disaster, so didn't know how scary a tornado is.
In this story, I went to the cornfield with two persons, Andy and Jo. They have reserched many tornados. So I believed them and approached a tornado. But I think it's a mistake because some famous reserchers should care about themselves. We must not be careless about disasters even if we study about nature. This lesson is very important.
