The first week in 003 class
So I came to the U.s. To improve my English and graduate from the university of Maryland. Now I am in 003 at MEI to learn more English, and we started one week ago. I think this class has a wealth of many new things to learn so I am happy to get new things in English. We now we are just starting and I hope to begin my academic studies in spring semester.

Who I Am and Why I Am Here
Anyone who travels to another country must tell people about himself. It’s a normal question: who are you? So you must talk about yourself. In this post I will introduce myself
My name is Saoud. I am from Qatar in the Middle East. I love my family very much and I know all of you love your family. My parents are old, and I have five brothers and three sisters. My father was an officer in the Ministry of Interior and my mother was a teacher of Arabic in our schools. My oldest brother, Salem, is also an officer and three of my brothers are officers in the Ministry of Interior, but the last one works at a television station. I think most people here have heard of Al-Jazeera. My oldest sister is also a teacher like my mother, but she teaches history. My second and third sisters are housewives. All of them are married, and they have children.
I started school in 1992, and I just finished high school last year. I like soccer very much. I can’t live without soccer games, and I can play soccer very well. I have come to enjoy American football since I came here. I am interested in history and I have a good background in many things which happened in history.
I think what makes me different is that I can play football (soccer) because people here don’t like soccer too much.
I came to the United States because I hope to finish my study here, and I will be proud to do that. I hope to take some classes in my major in January. Studying at MEI has helped me to speak English better than I could when I first came here.
