We Were In Love (우리 사랑했잖아) is Davichi’s and T-ara first collaboration digital single. Although the single was credited to T-ara only So Yeon, Ji Yeon, Hyo Min and Hwa Young participated.
“We Were in Love” represents T-ara and Davichi’s small little gift to the year 2011, the year that gave so much to them both. It stands as both the strongest example of CCM’s ballad style, and a useful blueprint for where the style could grow in the future.
This was their first joint single, however the two groups collaborated in the past with SeeYa for the release of “Yeoseong Shidae / Yeongwonhan Sarang” and “Wonder Woman” singles.

I recently started teaching a class at the English Language Institute here at USM. I am teaching a level 2 vocabulary class, and although I have enjoyed getting back into the classroom, it has also taken some getting use to; I have never taught a class where the majority of the students do not share a native language. I have also enjoyed using many of the theories and ideas that I have learned since I started the MATL program.
I am pretty much free to do whatever I feel will best help my students increase their lexicon. We have a textbook, but I have spent most of our class-time using realistic materials and making the students use the vocabulary they have leaned through task-work. Almost all of the students are hard workers and haven’t had to stress the importance of studying hard. The students have gone out of their way to get their work done, and this has made my job a lot easier.
I will only teach this class until Christmas break, and I am not sure if there will be enough language students enrolled for me to teach class next semester. Since I graduate in May, I have already started looking for potential jobs at other university English language programs, and I have already narrowed it down to a few programs that I hope will have interest in hiring me. Hopefully, JJ and I can stay in the south, but we are not closing any doors yet.
