Story Project: Writing "The Story of Ophelia"

By: Seishu Li


My friends and I gave a presentation to the class in July about “The Story of Ophelia.” This is an original fairy tale that was made by us. I tried to make this project a memorable presentation.


Using various techniques, we wrote the story in Japanese first and then tried to translate it to English. But it did not go well as we didn’t know how to translate into English that is easy for everyone in the class to understand. So I asked some classmates to read and inform us where they couldn’t understand and advised us to use more simple expression sentences. We achieved making our project simple and easy for everyone.


By attracting everyone’s attention using a tablet for our drawings. it becomes an attractive piece as well as memorable. We wanted to cheer with happiness and pleasure that our piece was hung on the wall so other people could see and know about our project. 


We were very happy, and this was a very good experience for me.
