I gave a speech about television advertisements in my conversation class. I talked about Japanese advertisements—in English! I talked about a Japanese Pepsi ad. Hmmm, is there a Pepsi machine around here?

I gave a speech about television advertisements in my conversation class. I talked about Japanese advertisements—but I spoke in English!

First, I spoke about a Master Card advertisement. In this advertisement, there is a businessman and a businesswoman. They are busy and in a hurry, and they want to take a taxi.

However, there is a traffic jam. Next, they take a helicopter. Finally, they pay with a Master Card. The appeal of this ad is humor and ego.

Next, I talked about a Pepsi Cola advertisement. The Japanese Pepsi company uses a character. We call this character Pepsiman. It is a cartoon. This appeal is of this ad is also houmor. It's humorous.

Finally, I talked about an English conversation company advertisement. They used famous people to advertise. These famous people are American like Mariah Carey. This appeal is emotional and ego, maybe.

I enjoy this kind of class work, but it is a very serious thing to speak in front of classroom in English!
