Facing a Video Camera

Our class teacher was adjusting the camera, and my colleagues were all talking among themselves slowly. Most of us had never been in front of a video camera before, so we were quite nervous.

It was 2:05 in the afternoon. When I entered the classroom, I was surprised to see a video camera. Our class teacher was adjusting the camera, and my colleagues were all talking among themselves slowly. Most of us had never been in front of a video camera before, so we were quite nervous.

Speaking for myself, I had once faced one back home; my uncle was shooting when we were celebrating my sister's birthday. But this was completely different. We had to talk about our article as if we were reading news on TV.

The funny thing was that every time I tried to face the camera and talk about my article, I forgot the article and couldn't resist looking down at it. It was a completely different experience for me, thanks to our class teacher.
