Andy 的第一場網球比賽 (英文寫作練習1)
2010/12/10 15:45:23瀏覽1494|回應15|推薦83


One day last summer, on my way home, driving somewhere near Da Li Sport Park, I noticed a poster, which read," Summer tennis lessons for the youth, a month for less than 2 thousand dollars". My son, Andy, was in the car, and I asked if he would like to attend. He said "Yes".

Since then, Andy enjoyed playing tennis very much in his free time and it has become his favorite after school activity. Together, we often watched ATP tennis games on MOD TV. Thus we get to know those famous players like Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Djokovic, Andy Murry, Stosur, Wozmiacki, Jonkovic, Dementeava, and the Williams.( spelling to the sound only)

Last week, Andy's coach asked if he would like to give it a try at a tournament held by Taichung Tennis Association. He said "say" and went to the match on Dec.4 and 5. To our surprise, he won the first run. Although he failed the second one,  it still felt great because that was, after all, his very first game.

On the court, he learned the rules and manners of how to play tennis, the technics and experience to interact with different players, and most of, an absolutely positive attitude when facing a game.

I'm very proud of Andy because now he not only plays the piano but also plays tennis. Those are the two things I've always believed a man should learn and enjoy in his life.

BTW, which one do you think Andy is ?

Dear Robert, 

From your writing, I see a  very loving and dedicated father.  Andy is lucky to have a dad always there for him.  I feel playing tennis and playing piano go well together since one is so dynamic, while the other is static.  Chinese old saying"  static like a virgin, active like a rabbit". 

Enjoy your essay and look forward to reading more. 

Have a nice week.

BTW, my son is also Andy.  But I normally call him Andrew. 
Robert TCW(rbttcw) 於 2011-01-21 07:58 回覆:
How conincident ! You, Derek, and I all have a son called Andy !
But is Andrew the nickname for Andy or is Andy the short form for Andrew ?
Actually, I named my son Andy only because it will be on top of the name lists.
How about your Andy ? Did you name him Andy for any particular reason ?
Robert :)

Congratulations! It seems Andy has both talents of playing tennis
& piano. And, I think you are not only proud of Andy, but also a
good father.
Robert TCW(rbttcw) 於 2011-01-16 13:31 回覆:
Thanks for your encouragement ! 
I hope playing tennis can help Andy to keep healthy and playing the piano may help soothe his mind when he is down.
Robert :)

人的一生要培養兩種嗜好

一種是靜態的  如文學、音樂、美術

另一種是動態的  如各式運動

要感謝爸比    Andy 已經俱備了

Robert TCW(rbttcw) 於 2011-01-08 19:28 回覆:
謝謝您回應,
運動給成長中的Andy舒緩身心壓力、強健體能的機會,
音樂則給他心靈陶冶、啟發生命美感等可能 ...
最重要是給課業平平的他更多信心
Robert :)

Andy  初試啼聲 後  就將  展露頭角了 

也許  運動   不應 把勝負 看的太重

不過  贏球的成就感  是  投入熱情的原動力吧

相信 Andy  除了  在打球的過程  能學習到  許多的道理  外

在球技的進步上  也是  可以期待的

好巧  我家兒子  也叫   Andy  也學過一點  小提琴

站上表演的舞台  信心的增進    也是一種收穫 吧

Robert TCW(rbttcw) 於 2010-12-25 21:48 回覆:
謝謝 Derek兄回應,Andy班級上週參加一個校內歌唱比賽,
他擔任鋼琴伴奏得到很不錯的名次(1/18),
真為他高興。
打球和彈琴給課業中等生的Andy在成長過程中增添許多信心!
Merry X'mas and happy new year !
Robert
