    Hello, Professor.
    Following the lesson that you have send it to me I have done already.

    This is a news that I choose for our class.

    NGO Wants Answers to Injured RFA’s Reporter
    The Alliance for Freedom of Expression in Cambodia (AFEC) appeals to the Cambodian government to probe into the accident involving RFA’s reporter Sok Serei, which occurred on December 14.
    While picking up his daughter from school, Sok Serei was hit by a pickup truck in Phnom Penh.
    Cambodian Center for Human Rights’ (CCHR) secretary Ou Vireak says the government is not responding quickly enough and suspects that the incident was not a ‘real’ accident. Meanwhile, Ministry of Interior’s spokesman Lieutenant General Khieu Sopheak states that the government is investigating into the case.
    Meanwhile, representatives from the Free Trade Union of Workers for the Kingdom of Cambodia (FTUWKC) sends a follow-up letter appealing for the Court of Appeals to set a hearing date for the two men accused of murdering FTUWKC’s former president Chea Vichea.
    Chea Vichea was shot dead in broad day light in front of a newsstand in Phnom Penh, 2004.

    And this is about the answer that related with When, Why, What, How,Who,Which,

    Mr. Krock the Head Master of Don Bosco Technical Sihanoukville said Don Bosco is not only in Cambodia, we around 128 countries a around the world, and Don Bosco work for young people that lose opportunities to study in high school or university.

    Observations to “NGO Wants Answers to Injured RFA’s Reporter”

    1. There is not the source of this information. The source might be writen like this:

    1.1. If we have an author:

    Buntha Rose. Don Bosco graduated 150 students today. The Sihanoukville News. Sihanoukville, September 3, 2007. Pag. 2

    1.2. If we do not know the author:

    A History of Cambodia. The Sihanoukville News. Sihanoukville, September 3, 2007. Pag. 3

    2. There is not an analysis of the information: what, where, when, why, who…

    Observations to “The best moments in Don Bosco”

    In general redaction is good. There is a good description of the moment.

    1. We do not say “In September” but “on September”.

    2. No “Diplomas to the student” but “to the studentS”.

    3. No “the level 2 years” but “the second year”.

    4. The following redaction is unclear, please try again:

    Following the reporter had showed that, tomorrow the student they are going to arrange places and Material for practice their plays to show on September 7, 2007.
    Those had finished their section, Secretarial, Auto, Mechanic, Electricity, and Welding.
