My Korean student, Harry, 13 years old, goes mountain hiking on free weekends with his family. I was thrilled to find out that he also likes hiking as much as I do. He made this for his homework as we discussed about mountains last Monday.
My family goes mountain climbing sometimes.
It is very good for health.
So many people climb a mountain.
When we go to the mountains, we can get fresh air.
I also feel good when I reach the summit.
However, mountain climbing is very hard. It takes 4-5 hours.
There are many climbers in the world nowadays.
Everyone likes mountain climbing.
In my almost four years of teaching Koreans, I may say that most of the teenagers would rather lavish the city life than going to the mountains. It’s good to know that there are some who still values the benefits of mountain hiking/climbing like Harry.
I will invite my students to share their hiking experiences in Korea in this blog. In a way, it will encourage them to express themselves in English through their interests.
Harry gave his consent to have this posted in this blog. All the photos belong to him.
