Yilan ETAs are ready for the National Games!

今年來到宜蘭服務的傅爾布萊特八位英語教學助理們,適逢宜蘭舉辦全國運動會,盛逢其事,除了英語教學助理Jordan Loretz創作了一首給宜蘭全國運動會歌外,所有的英語教學助理們更是利用課餘時間齊力拍攝了音樂影片、創作英語教學的教材,希望能讓宜蘭學童用英語更了解全國運動會外,讓英語學習結合時事,也同時希望利用他們創作的英語歌曲為全國選手加油!

Yilan County is going to host a nationwide event, National Games 2017, in October from the 20th to 26th. By utilizing their spare time, not only Jordan Loretz, one of the Fulbright Yilan English Teaching Assistants (ETAs), wrote and composed an English song for National Games Event in Yilan County, but also all eight Fulbright Yilan ETAs seized this great opportunity to create teaching materials for the children of Yilan. Associating English language acquisition with the current event, they also hope the children of Yilan County would learn more about National Games via their teaching materials. Simultaneously, they hope they can encourage all the participating athletes by their homemade English song for National Games. Go, go, go!

The National Games
Original Song and Lyrics by Jordan Loretz

[Verse 1]

The National Games are finally here
We have waited for two years for the
Competition—I just can’t wait
Watching all my favorite sports is gonna be great

* [Chorus] *

Who will win? Who will lose?
Which event will I choose
To attend with my friends?
We can cheer until it ends
First place, second, or third
Win or lose, we’re having fun
Touchdown! Goal! Homerun!

[Verse 2]

The National Games 2017
Athletes working as a team, it’s in
Yilan County, I just can’t wait
Watching all my favorite sports is gonna be great

* [Chorus] *

Who will win? Who will lose?
Which event will I choose
To attend with my friends?
We can cheer until it ends

* [Chorus] *
