Let’s start the discussion!Lesson 1: The Reflective Essays Reflective essay is a type of essay aimed to reflect personal event orexperience of the author. The main condition is that it has to be a certain personalexperience on which the author expresses his very own perception about life. Thisexperience or event is revealed in the essay in order to demonstrate its importance forunderstanding social relations and the essence of people.Structure of a Reflective EssayHere is a probable scheme of a reflective essay: • The aim of the opening paragraph is to get the reader involved in the author’s expression of ideas including interesting details and personal experiences. The style must be very vivid and must appeal to the reader. • The middle part reveals a good variety of the author’s ideas on the topic. • The concluding sentences summarize the main ideas and experiences highlighted in the essay. The author makes a reflection of his general perception of the given topic. The introductory paragraph is used for describing the background of your topic,your role in it, and the reasons for choosing it. It is also important to mention your aimand goals for developing the reflective essay writing. 10
  11. 11. In the supporting paragraphs you will explain the process of working on thereflective essay from its initial research to the final stages. Be sure to pay attention toboth the weak and strong points; positive and negative experiences and any associatedfeelings. To conclude your reflective essay efficiently, answer these questions: • Did you achieve your goals? • What would you like to change if you had another chance? • What useful expertise have you obtained from the task? • How could it be improved?Activity 10: Vocabulary in a Flash Below are phrases you will encounter while reading the essay “The World in aTrain “ by Francisco Icasiano.

  12. 12. The World in a Train Francisco Icasiano One Sunday I entrained for Baliwag, a town in Bulacan which can well afford tohold two fiestas a year without a qualm. I took the train partly because I am prejudiced in favor of the government ownedrailroad, partly because I am allowed comparative comfort in a coach, and finallybecause trains sometimes leave and arrive according to schedule. In the coach I found a little world, a section of the abstraction called humanitywhom we are supposed to love and live for. I had previously arranged to divide the idlehour or so between cultivating my neglected Christianity and smoothing out the roughedges of my nature with the aid of grateful sights without – the rolling wheels, the flyinghuts and trees and light-green palay seedlings and carabaos along the way. Inertia, Isuppose, and the sort of reality we moderns know make falling in love with myimmediate neighbors often a matter of severe strain and effort to me. Let me give a sketchy picture of the little world whose company Mang Kikoshared in moments which soon passed away affecting most of us. First, there came to my notice three husky individuals who dusted their seatsfuriously with their handkerchiefs without regard to hygiene or the brotherhood of men. Itgave me no little annoyance that on such a quiet morning the unpleasant aspects inother peoples ways should claim my attention. Then there was a harmless-looking middle-aged man in green camisa de chinowith rolled sleeves who must have entered asleep. When I noticed him he was alreadysnuggly entrenched in a corner seat, with his slippered feet comfortably planted on theopposite seat, all the while his head danced and dangled with the motion of the train. Icould not, for the love of me, imagine how he would look if he were awake. A child of six in the next seat must have shared with me in speculating about thedreams of this sleeping man in green. Was he dreaming of the Second World War orthe price of eggs? Had he any worries about the permanent dominion status or the finaloutcome of the struggles of the masses, or was it merely the arrangement of the scaleson a fighting roasters legs that brought that frown on his face? But the party that most engaged my attention was a family of eight composed ofa short but efficient father, four very young children, mother, grandmother, and anotherwoman who must have been the efficient fathers sister. They distributed themselves onfour benches – you know the kind of seats facing each other so that half the passengerstravel backward. The more I looked at the short but young and efficient father theshorter his parts looked to me. His movements were fast and short, too. He removed hiscoat, folded it carefully and slung it on the back of his seat. Then he pulled out his wallet 12
  13. 13. from the hip pocket and counted his money while his wife and the rest of his groupwatched the ritual without a word. Then the short, young, and efficient father stood up and pulled out two bananaleaf bundles from a bamboo basket and spread out both bundles on one bench and logluncheon was ready at ten oclock. With the efficient father leading the charge, thechildren (except the baby in his grandmothers arms) began to dig away with littleencouragement and aid from the elders. In a short while the skirmish was over, theenemy – shrimps, omelet, rice and tomato sauce – were routed out, save for a fewshrimps and some rice left for the grandmother to handle in her own style later. Then came the water-fetching ritual. The father, with a glass in hand, led themarch to the train faucet, followed by three children whose faces still showed the marksof a hard-fought-battle. In passing between me and a person, then engaged in a casualconversation with me, the short but efficient father made a courteous gesture which isstill good to see in these democratic days; he bent from the hips and, dropping bothhands, made an opening in the air between my collocutor and me – a gesture which inunspoiled places means "Excuse Me." In one of the stations where the train stopped, a bent old woman in black boardedthe train. As it moved away, the old woman went about the coach, begging holdingevery prospective Samaritan by the arm, and stretching forth her gnarled hand in thefamiliar fashion so distasteful to me at that time. There is something in begging whichdestroys some fiber in most men. "Every time you drop a penny into a beggars palmyou help degrade a man and make it more difficult for him to rise with dignity. . ." There was something in his beggars eye which seemed to demand. "Now do yourduty." And I did. Willy-nilly I dropped a coin and thereby filled my life with repulsion. Isthis Christianity? "Blessed are the poor . . ." But with what speed did that bent oldwoman cross the platform into the next coach! While thus engaged in unwholesome thought, I felt myself jerked as the train made acurve to the right. The toddler of the family of eight lost his balance and caught the shortbut efficient father off-guard. In an instant all his efficiency was employed in collectingthe shrieking toddler from under his seat. The child had, in no time, developed twoelongated bumps on the head, upon which was applied a moist piece of cloth. Therewere no reproaches, no words spoken. The discipline in the family was remarkable, orwas it because they considered the head as a minor anatomical appendage and wastherefore nor worth the fuss? Occasionally, when the childs crying rose above the din of the locomotive and theclinkety-clank of the wheels on the rails, the father would jog about a bit withoutblushing, look at the bumps on his childs head, shake his own, and move his lipssaying, "Tsk, Tsk”. And nothing more. 13
  14. 14. Fairly tired of assuming the minor responsibilities of my neighbors in this little worldin motion, I looked into the distant horizon where the blue Cordilleras merged into theblue of the sky. There I rested my thoughts upon the billowing silver and grey of theclouds, lightly remarking upon their being a trial to us, although they may not know it.We each would mind our own business and suffer in silence for the littlest mistakes ofothers; laughing at their ways if we happened to be in a position to suspend our emotionand view the whole scene as a god would; or, we could weep for other men if we arethe mood to shed copious tears over the whole tragic aspect of a world thrown out ofjoint. It is strange how human sympathy operates. We assume an attitude of completeindifference to utter strangers whom we have seen but not met. We claim that they arethe hardest to fall in love with in the normal exercise of Christian charity. Then a littlechild falls from a seat, or a beggar stretches forth a gnarled hand, or three husky mendust their seats; and we are, despite our pretensions, affected. Why not? If even asleeping man who does nothing touches our life!Activity11: Understanding the Text Answer the following questions: 1.

  17. 17. Things the author discovered about Things you are beginning about himself yourselfLesson 2: Relative Clause A clause is a group of words with its own subject and verb or predicate. A relative clause is a subordinate clause that begins with a relative pronoun(e.g. who, which, where) or the word that. You can use it to modify a noun or pronoun(i.e. to identify or give more information about it). Words like who, that and when are called relative pronouns when they areused to introduce relative clauses. You use: • who for people, which for things, and that for both people and things. • whom as the object of a relative clause (in more formal English), though it is increasingly common to replace it with who. • whose to indicate possession, as a determiner before nouns. For Example: • Students who can develop independent learning skills often achieve good academic results. • There is a new book that investigates the controversy over political reforms in Hong Kong. • A university is a place where people pursue advanced knowledge in specific academic disciplines. 17
