    class attendance policy
    Dear all,
     
    Over this pandemic period, I'd like to remind you NOT to try to attend the class even when you feel a tiny bit of discomfort.😒
     
    You're also advised to take notes of your absent dates this semester if there's any. If you're absent for 3 hours on March 5 & 12 for example, give a short presentation -- within 3 min. -- about anything you've learned or sth special you'd like to share in English by April 12.
     
    That is, within a month after you take 3 hours off, you'll have to give a short presentation in English, either in class or in a video u make at home, in which u talk like a youtuber!😉
     
    So don't worry if u cannot join the class, but try to explore your life, have fun and share~❤️
