#1 How did we meet?
“The villagers were the victims of land mines.”
With the word “victim,” you could make many noun combinations. For example, ‘tsunami victims,' ‘victims of rape,' ‘victims of fraud,' etc.
There were a bunch of weirdos like you.
I made fun of Theo and people at the volunteer service project by calling them “weirdos.” A “weirdo” means someone whose appearance of behavior seems strange.
#2 What does it mean to be Jewish American?
There are people who feel they need to be represented in government and in their industries.
Use this grammar structure to make similar sentences for your practice. For example, “There are people who feel they need to be heard in government.”
You have a different perception of who you are.
Try making new sentences using this structure. For example, “He has a poor perception of his body image.” “Godwin and Marx had a different perception of what a utopia should be.”
There are religious Jews and there are Jews that denounce religion.
To denounce religion means to be against, or deny religion.
To be Jewish doesn't mean you are religious, it just means you are a part of cultural, ethnic identity that is different from other white people in the States.
#3 Tell us about your field of work
I can't say that I'm an expert in any specific issue, nor have I been to any specific field for that long. But what I did learn about is the NGO world. I think that's what I can say I have a decent understanding about a, good grasp about the NGO world around the world and in China.
#4 Tell me about your experience in Korea
One of the first things I noticed in Korea is that, Koreans are highly concerned with their external appearance, and that was not something I was used to in the States.
highly concerned = extremely concerned = very concerned
Notice in this sentence, first Theo makes an observation, “Koreans are highly concerned with external appearance.” Then he adds his response with, “and that was not something I was used to in the States.” Try making your own sentence in this manner.
“I noticed that in (name of a country), people are (adjective), and that was not something I was used to in my home country.”
If you're going outside, people don't make that of a big deal.
“It's not a big deal.” “Don't make it a big deal,” “It's not that of a big deal.”
Another thing I observed about the Korean society is that people tend to think and act in a very similar way.

“Another thing I observed about (name of a country) is that people tend to (verb).”
