Am done already. I have answered all questions in all entries apart from entry #10 which needs your attention becuase I do not know the group members.

1. How did you choose your group for this course?
I was relaxing in class one day after the lesson and some of my best friends
They were discussing the issues we had covered in our lesson that had just

encourage everyone to participate.

5. What is your strength and weakness when it comes to communicating with
My main strength is that I can communicate to others and write down their
points effectively at the same time.
The other one is that I can convince people to change their mind easily
without hurt8ung their feelings.
My weakness is that I am not good at giving up on my opinions.
The other weakness is that I expect total concentration. If I communicate to
