week 3

Today, I have Homework, to finish reading Iida’s (2016) article and to write a 250- word essay on my ideas, opinions, or thoughts about the following questions: What is my understanding of poetry writing?, Why is poetry writing important to us?, Which poem do I like the best? Explain my reason.

1,  What is my understanding of poetry writing?

Iida (2016) argued that “that L2 writers, even at the levels of ability such as the participants in this study, can successfully communicate their experiences”(p 132). So, poem for  second language (L2) writers  enable to successfully communicate their experiences even L2 writers is lack of English ability. And Iida (2016) argued that “Poetry written by L2 learners in this study was characterized as short, personal, direct, and descriptive.”(p132), too. So, L2 writers can write their thinking short, personal, direct, and descriptive by using poetry writing.


2, Why is poetry writing important to us?

I think poetry writing can us write our thinking easier than write in formal writing, and we can write very laugh by using this type of writing. So, poetry writing is important.


3, Which poem do I like the best? Explain my reason.

I chose this poem and I like this one best.

Everyday life
We think it continues forever
We think it is natural
But it was special …
It is valuable …”

First, in this poem, “…” are used twice and I feel this matter seems to be Japanese. Second, in this poem, what makes him (or her) to feel like this is not written. I think readers are had room for thinking that what happened to writer. And reader think to spend our Everyday life is special and important. So, I like this poem best.

week 2

Today, I have read Hanauer’s (2013) article. And I have to make a 250-word essay on my own ideas, opinions, or thoughts about the following questions:

◇What is my understanding of poetry writing?

◇Why is poetry writing important to us?


But for me, this article is too difficult that I cannot understand 90% of words or sentences meanings. To read this text is very stressful for me, and it is very difficult to read this type of essay every week because of my ability, time for practicing musical instruments, or other task . However, I need to write an essay on this blog today, so I do my best and please read with your kindness.


1, What is my understanding of poetry writing?

Poetry writing is a type of art. It can make us to express our thinks by poetry writing.


2, Why is poetry writing important to us?

Poetry writing makes us to meet other cultural thinking. We can understand other people who have other thinking of us, through reading poet. And we can express our thinking to people who have other thinking of us. And poetry writing helps us to make others to understand or to think about our thinking. So, poetry writing is important to us.


I tried reading carefully or reading again. But I couldn’t understand this article better and couldn’t write more words or better sentence among my think on this blog. I worry which I can get along well on this class. I wish I could get easier task or articles to read..


Thank you for reading.
