On night, our class has combined with JAC1102A. This is replacement class. The topic Miss Zu wants to discuss is ‘Fact and Opinion’.
1)    What is fact?

Stating a geographical or scientific fact

2)   What is opinion?
·         One’s personal belief, idea, or feeling about a subject.
·         Can be a statement about future.
·         The clues to identify:

As usually, after Miss Zu has discussed about this topic, she has give a task to us. The task is to promote our product using facts and opinion. The representative of each group must in front of class to take the stuff. My group has taken skin care product which is ‘Ultra Violet Skin Solution’. We must create 5 sentences consists of this topic. On that night, all the groups shrieked to answer the questions. Finally, my group got the highest mark of going this activity.
My reflection is we must think creatively and innovatively to attract the customers to buy our product. In addition, the product that we sold must be trusted by customer.
