今日の宿題は2つ。DAILY DIARY_THINK IN ENGLISH CHALLENGEと言っている英語で書く日記と、Taiwan Train Disasterという動画をみて、サマリと意見を書くやつだった。
DAILY DIARY_THINK IN ENGLISH CHALLENGE
I woke up earlier than usual today. This allowed me to jog and watch the news in the morning hours. I usually start work around 9:30 am, but today I was able to start at 8:00 am. Therefore, I am very happy to finish my work earlier than usual. I was able to finish my work earlier, but there was nothing special to do after that, so I was wasting my time. I wish I could do this everyday, but it is probably impossible, because
it I just happened to wake up early today. I think I will be back to normal tomorrow.
Taiwan Train Disaster
At least 50 people have been killed in a passenger train crash in Taiwan. The accident was caused by a lorry that slipped onto the track from a nearby construction site. There were many passengers in the train and the damage was extensive because it was before a major holiday. The accident occurred in a tunnel and there was no space on the sides of the tunnel, so most people had to climb onto the carriage roof to get out.
Of course, the responsibility for the accident lies with the owner of the lorry, but I think it is also due to the fact that no precautions had been taken to prevent accidents. I am wondering if there were any guardrails installed on the construction site. In fact, such accidents are rarely heard of in Japan. I think Taiwan needs to take better safety measures.
