Essay, an imaginary class

An Imaginary Class
Melchor F. Cichon

It's almost the end of a semester. Generally, all the courses in college have what we call as a culminating activity.
The following essay is delivered to an imaginary classroom having a culminating activity. And pretending myself as the teacher in an English class.
Before anything else, I would like to express my heartfelt thank to each one of you for giving me a rare opportunity to be a part of your life. I am very much positive that our togetherness for the past one semester has been meaningful to all of us.
It’s our culminating activity today.
But it does not mean that this is the end of our relationship.
For even if we have finished our course this semester, we will continue our relationships outside of this classroom, and even outside of this institution.
Four years from now, all of you must have graduated from your respective courses, and I am sure that all of you will land a job. Hopefully, a job that you and your parents have chosen. A job that can help you actualize not only your desire, but most of all your chosen need.
And perhaps, you establish your own business and create jobs for our countrymen.
And when that comes, in some moments, you will recall those memorable experiences we have had inside this classroom. How you prepared for your exams, how you pronounced some difficult words, how you constructed effective sentences or perhaps paragraphs.
And perhaps, it was here where you met the person that melted your heart whenever you see him/her. The guy that propelled your heart to come to class prepared.
Ah, English subject. It’s not only how we pronounce the words correctly, how we write the correct tenses, how we compose effective sentences. But also how we should deal with our classmates, with our teachers. In short the subject that can help shape our total personality.
Thank you and bless us all.
