Thank you very much for the opportunity to let me talk about a class rule that I actually liked. It was about being present in the right time at the class. This was the most impressive rule that I liked most in my school days in Nha Trang – a coastal city in Vietnam. In fact, the rule helped me a lot to be punctual in everything. This was the very first lesson from the school that if you cannot be a punctual student, you would be unable to do anything in your life. This cue card task is a nice one and I am glad to have it in my share.
