JOHN’S VLOG #1
John’s Good News
Hello guys. I’m John and welcome to my Youtube channel. I have good news to tell you. You know what, I am very happy today because yesterday, my teacher told me that I will be going to an English camp next week. I will be going with my classmates and my English teacher. We will be learning English by playing different games. I’m sure I will enjoy this activity. I am now preparing the things I will be bringing to the camp. I will be bringing some t-shirts, pants, and shorts. I will be bringing also some snacks to eat in case I get hungry at night. And of course, I should not forget my toothpaste and my toothbrush. I’m really excited to go. I love English and this is a very exciting experience for me. I’ll update you again in the next vlog. Bye-bye!
JOHN’S VLOG #2
John’s Bad News
Hello guys. So here is my vlog update. I told you yesterday that I will be going to an English camp next week. The bad news is, I am going to the camp from home alone. I can’t bring with me my mom! I _______ my mom when I don’t see her. I thought parents can accompany the participants but no! I know that my dad _________ me too when I’m away. It’s my first time to be away from home alone. I will ________ my little sister too. I’m sure she _______ me too when she cannot see me at home. And I’m sure I will ________ my dog, Boky. I will surely _______ my friends in the neighborhood, too. They _________ me when they don’t see me at home. But it’s okay. I will be out just for three days. I will update you again when I get back from the camp. I’m sure my fans on YouTube will miss me too. I will be back, soon. Bye!
