  1. The class was a little difficult but interesting. I’m not good at writing English essay but I’ll do my best.

  2. Today, in this class it’s very difficult for me to understand what I should do.
    I’m really worried about this class from now.

  3. The class was interesting, but I have to do my best because the class was a little bit difficult for me. Nice to meet you.

  4. It was interesting to summarize your talking . I felt it helps me to improve my listening skill and writing skill. I’m looking forward to attending next class.
