Reading & Comprehension 1
Assignment: Unit 12 Vocabulary Story
Title: Twisted Scion

Inspector:

So tell me, what do you know about Tom Fort?

Alex:

Tommy was a dear friend of mine. He always regaled us with strange stories. Many times his storylines were hardly intelligible. Also he was an inveterate bluffer. But he was a very good and versatile entertainer. Beside his stories, he would do his little acts and sing us songs. We always told him he should try out for some movie parts, but he always said that he didn’t care, and the joy he gets from entertaining his friends was all he needed.

Assignment: Unit 11 Vocabulary Story
Title: Judi file #0xE29C2F (Record of a connection with a comma patient)

Ricardo had returned from his very long journey a few days ago. I heard he circumnavigated the globe to expand his business, and to export passenger cars. I knew him very well, he was no charlatan. He had the money, power, and adequate connections to carry out such business. I’ve also heard a lot of conjecture about him working in collusion with the customs officials in order to circumvent paying taxes which, according to the law, should commensurate with the amount of his export.

Assignment: A Story with words of part A of review 4
Title: The Spirit of Judi (part one)

Over the past several months, as the news of a due date for the initial tests of the highly confidential experiment, called ‘The Spirit of Judi’, broke on the TV and over the internet, many agitations were held, a lot of talk shows invited prominent scientists who had acute concerns about the turn out of the experiment, and beseeched those in charge of the project to stop their work. The Twitter was overflowed by a flood of negative twits. Some said the experiment is downright dangerous. Others who had little faith in the world of science accused the claims, addressing the stability of what’s being done in the labs, to be extremely dubious. And the government was forced to enact legislation, prohibiting the experiment to go on, and or any tests to take place!

Class:
Reading & Comprehension 1
Assignment: A Story with words of part A of 2nd exercise paper (review 3)

Tony was a lonely boy. He shunned everyone. No matter how many times his mother entreated him to make friends, he would refuse. He spent most of his days in his garret. Everyday before the dusk fell he would walk to the seashore and watch the sea absorb the sun. and every night before the dawn he went up to the mountains and watch the sun replenish the sky with light. At school he was sharply reproved by his teachers for being tardy for every class. Yet at the end of the day they were amazed by his intellect and subtle mind.

Tony enjoyed writing poems. The theme of his writings were mostly about the problems he had encountered during his childhood. Tony, may he rest in peace is no longer with us. Let us pray that god bless his soul and forgive his sins.
