Hero

머라이어 캐리의 유명한 팝송 hero 입니다. ^^
가사가 울림이 있습니다. 내 자신에 영웅적인 힘이 있고,
그 힘이 나를 희망차게 앞으로 이끌어 준다는 가사 내용입니다.
첫번째로 하기 선생님 파일 들어보시고 나서, 가사 지문 단어 확인하시고, 음악 감상하시길 추천합니다.^^

There’s a hero, if you look inside your heart,
You don’t have to be afraid of what you are.
There’s an answer if you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know will melt away.


And then a hero comes along with the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive
So, when you feel like hope is gone

Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

It’s a long road when you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
You can find love if you search within yourself
And that emptiness you felt will disappear.

And then a hero comes along with the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive
So, when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

Lord knows dreams are hard to follow
But don’t let anyone tear them away
Hold on, there will be tomorrow.
In time, you’ll find the way.

And then a hero comes along with the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside and you know you can survive
So, when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong

And you’ll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

Female teachers fear their school photos ..

Female teachers fear their school photos used against them

Seven out of 10 school teachers fear that their pictures printed in graduation albums could be used for crimes against them.
From elementary to high schools, photo albums are made every year as a gift for graduating students, including pictures of teachers and other school staff members, and it is a long school tradition.

In a survey conducted by a teachers' union in Seoul on 8,122 teachers across the country, 70.6 percent of respondents said they held such a concern. Female teachers were much more concerned than male colleagues and younger teachers were more worried than older teachers.
Among the respondents, 7.6 percent answered they witnessed their photos being circulated in Kakao group chats or on Naver forums for mothers.

"Of course, I am worried. It's not that I am too concerned to walk alone at night. But I am aware that I can be a victim of a crime because some people know my face and want to do something against me," said one female middle-school teacher in her 50s from Seoul
"I have a teacher friend in Gyeonggi Province. She has a school-age child and was invited to a group chat for parents. She told me that in that group chat she saw her colleague's picture being shared and other parents talking about the colleague's appearance. It happens more often than people imagine."
She said it's frustrating to learn that her information is made public without her approval. "I don't know anything about them, but they know and talk about me."

Asked about solutions, 51.6 percent of the teachers answered they'd like to see the graduation albums discontinued.
Another popular suggestion was to give teachers the freedom to be excluded from the albums.
"This makes sense. If a teacher doesn't want their picture to be printed in the graduation album, that opinion should be respected," the teacher said

Elephant And Friends

하기 음성을 먼저 듣고 지문 리딩 부탁드립니다^^

A lone elephant wandered the forest looking for friends.
She came across a monkey and asked, “Will you be my friend, monkey?” “You are too big and cannot swing on trees as I do. So I cannot be your friend”, said the monkey.
The elephant then came across a rabbit and asked him if she could be his friend. “You are too big to fit inside my burrow. You cannot be my friend”, replied the rabbit.
Then the elephant met a frog and asked if she could be her friend. The frog said “You are too big and heavy. You cannot jump like me. I am sorry, but you cannot be my friend”.

The elephant asked a fox, and he got the same reply, that she was too big. The next day, all the animals in the forest were running in fear. The elephant stopped a bear and asked what was happening and was told that a tiger has been attacking all the animals.

The elephant wanted to save the other weak animals and went to the tiger and said “Please sir, leave my friends alone. Do not eat them”. The tiger didn’t listen and asked the elephant to mind her own business. Seeing no other way to solve the problem, the elephant kicked the tiger and scared it away.

She then went back to the others and told them what happened. On hearing how the elephant saved their lives, the animals agreed in unison, “You are just the right size to be our friend.”

Moral
Friends come in all shapes and sizes!

Tiger tests positive for coronavirus

A tiger at the Bronx Zoo in New York City has tested positive for the respiratory disease caused by the novel coronavirus, in the first known case of a human infecting an animal and making it sick, the zoo's chief veterinarian said on Sunday.
Nadia, the 4-year-old Malayan tiger that tested positive, was screened for the COVID-19 disease after developing a dry cough along with three other tigers and three lions, the Wildlife Conservation Society, which manages the zoo, said in a statement. All of the cats are expected to recover, it said.

The virus that causes COVID-19 is believed to have spread from animals to humans, and a handful of animals have tested positive in Hong Kong.
But officials believe this is a unique case because Nadia became sick after exposure to an asymptomatic zoo employee, Paul Calle, chief veterinarian at the Bronx Zoo, told Reuters. Calle said they did not know which employee infected the tiger.
"This is the first time that any of us know of anywhere in the world that a person infected the animal and the animal got sick," Calle said, adding that they planned to share the findings with other zoos and institutions. "Hopefully we will all have a better understanding as a result."

While the other tigers and lions were also exhibiting symptoms, the zoo decided to test only Nadia because she was the sickest and had started to lose her appetite, and they did not want to subject all the cats to anesthesia, Calle said.
"The tigers and lions weren't terribly sick," he said.

Nadia underwent X-rays, an ultrasound and blood tests to try to figure out what was ailing her. They decided to test for COVID-19 given the surge in cases in New York City, the epicenter of the outbreak in the United States.
The first tiger at the zoo, which has been shut since mid-March, began showing signs of illness on March 27, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Veterinary Services Laboratories, which performed the test. (Reuters)

Scientists develop reusable face mask filter

South Korean scientists have developed a face mask filter that retains its protective properties even after being washed over 20 times, a research university said Tuesday.

The development by a team led by Kim Il-doo at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) comes as the country struggles with a supply shortage of protective masks amid worries over the spread of the new coronavirus.

The new filter, which can be placed inside regular cotton masks, is made of a nanofabric that is specially aligned for maximum protective qualities even after prolonged use.
Existing disposable masks lose their ability to filter out particles with time, especially if they come into contact with moisture and if they are washed.
Even after the mask is washed dozens of times with soap or submerged in an ethanol solution for three hours, its protective properties are retained.

"After undergoing such a process, the filter retained its structure with its prospective properties remaining at 94 percent compared to when it was first used," KAIST said.
The new filter can be implemented in medium level KF80 masks as well as high grade N95 respirators that are in high demand by medical personnel. Even after the filtering material is folded and unfolded 4,000 times, the material retains KF80 grade protective qualities, it said.
KAIST said at present, Kim's team can churn out 1,500 filters a day at its lab, and if it gets approval from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, production capability could be ramped up. (Yonhap)

SUMMARY
Kim Il-doo’s team developed a washable face mask filter which does not lose its protective properties after being folded and unfolded 4,000 times.

In today's pronunciation class, we will read a short paragraph about:

"Taxes"

Listen while I read this one.

Taxes are special fees charged by a government on the people who live in a country, state or city. These fees help pay for public services like police, road and bridge repair, and public schools. In the United States people have to pay national, state, and local taxes. Income tax is a tax applied to how much money a person earns in a year. There are both federal and state income taxes. These have to be paid every year by April 15th.

There are special forms the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the government agency in charge of collecting taxes, asks people to fill out. There are tax credits that people with low income, college students, and parents can get.

The Young Crab and His Mother

One day, a young crab and his mother were on the beach, spending some time together. The young crab gets up to move, but it can only walk sideways. His mother scolds him for walking sideways and asks him to walk forward by pointing his toes out front. The young crab responds, “I would like to walk forward mom, but I do not know how to”.
Hearing this, his mom gets up to show him how, but even she is unable to bend her knees forward. She realizes that she was being unfair, apologizes sheepishly, and sits back in the sand.
Moral
Don’t condemn someone for not doing something that you yourself are unable to do.

김동률의 출발

Coelyne 선생님이 김동률의 출발을 영작수업으로 준비해주셨습니다.
Departure By Kim Dong Ryul

I wanna go to the farthest place
I wonder what kind of people I can meet over there
I wanna go to the highest point
I wonder the place I can see beyond
One small water bottle, a dusty camera,
A stained map being put into my bag
Over the hill and through the forest path
While I touch the ground with my light steps
I walk along the endless path slowly

I sit down without any thoughts as well as I take a break
Even though I am lost it is important that I don't rush
Someday I will figure it out
As this path teaches me eventually
The wet ground, the footprints in front of me
The sky I see for the first time, but the same old path
Over the hill and through the forest path
While I touch the ground with my light steps
I walk along the endless path slowly
My heart becomes excited from seeing a new scenery
I act extravagantly from seeing trivial
I walk while whistling
I walk along the path even though I trip over occasionally
One small water bottle, a dusty camera,
A stained map being put into my bag
Over the hill and through the forest path
While I touch the ground with my light steps
I walk along the endless path slowly
The road that I'm familiar since childhood
I sometimes do yearn for it
So I'm off for a journey, for the wider world

VOCABULARY WORDS
stained (verb)
Definition: to leave a mark on something that is difficult to remove
Example: While she was changing the wheel on her car, her coat had become stained with oil.
trivial (adjective)
Definition: having little value or importance
Example: I don't know why he gets so upset about something so trivial.
extravagantly (adverb)
Definition: in a way that causes you to spend too much money or use too much of something
Example: It is an extravagantly priced car.
yearn (verb)
Definition: to wish very strongly, especially for something that you cannot have or something that is very difficult to have

3 min class for pronunciation with Jezel teacher

Good day! This me again, your teacher Jez from Dial-U.

Welcome to our Pronunciation class. In today's class, we will read a short paragraph about:

"Opera"

I want you to listen while I read this paragraph.

Opera refers to a dramatic art form, originating in Europe, in which the emotional content is conveyed to the audience as much through music, both vocal and instrumental, as it is through the lyrics. By contrast, in musical theater an actor's dramatic performance is primary, and the music plays a lesser role. The drama in opera is presented using the primary elements of theater such as scenery, costumes, and acting.

However, the words of the opera, or libretto, are sung rather than spoken. The singers are accompanied by a musical ensemble ranging from a small instrumental ensemble to a full symphonic orchestra.

Alright, let's read it again!
~ (*student reads with teacher*)

Oh, what a good reading!

Now, let's do some practice.

These words have the letter 'f' sound.
Listen as I pronounce them clearly.
Words: (f sound)

- refers
- form
- performance
- full
- symphonic

Okay, let's do it one more time.
~ (repeat)

That's great!

Now, I have here five more words to practice with you!

I want you to repeat after me
Alright?
Let's begin!

- roof
- tough
- friend
- goof

Let's repeat that again.

(*student reads with teacher*)

Wow, that sounds good!

So, that's it for today!

Thank you and I will see you again next time!
