最近又开始秋季的讲座季节,我讲得主题基本都是以前讲过的,但是每次讲座之前我一般都会写一些笔记,让自己重新思考讲座的主题。以下是这两周的几次讲座笔记,没什么太深刻的,但我想也许有朋友会感兴趣的。

1. 英语学习(大学生):

University students have two types of problems:
1) My English is really bad
2) My English is okay, but I don't know how to make it better

This will not make your English better:
1) Thinking about learning English
2) Blaming yourself for not having good enough English

This will make your English better:
1) Reading English
2) Listening to English
3) Speaking English
4) Writing English

You don't have to spend 24 hours a day learning English
You don't have to only read the Economist
You can read Harry Potter
You can read Twilight
You can read articles about Lady Gaga
Or Yao Ming

The most important thing is to make English a part of your daily life
If you don't like it, it is not going to become a part of your daily life

You can like it
Learning (English) is lonely
But not always
You can practice speaking with your Chinese friends

How can English be a part of your daily life?
-A TV show
-Music
-Movies
-Walking and talking
-Chicken Soup for the Soul (or our English books)

How will you make English a part of your daily life?
-Start today
-One step at a time
-Make changes along the way
-You'll be glad you did
-One minute a day
-Ten minutes a day

Reading is not speaking
Thinking about English is not speaking
Speaking is speaking
Triangle

Fit it into your life:
-What will you do tonight
-What will you do tomorrow

Thank you
Goodbye

2. 美国留学(中学生):

You only have one child
You want to make the right decisions for your Child's future
You want to help your child make the right decisions
In fact, there are thousands of choices you could make, thousands of roads you could take, all of which can lead to incredible results
There are aspects of the education system in China that you don't like

What's special about studying abroad in the US:
You can go to a good school
You have choice in your study
You can make real connections with professors as an undergraduate
You can become really good at English (4 years in the US)
You can stay… or come back!
You can become a true global citizen (提升就业竞争力)

Structure:
Why study abroad in the US
How to prepare for study abroad
How to study abroad in the US

Conclusion
Right now, maybe it seems insurmountable
Once you've decided to go
Once you know what is involved in the process
The pieces of the process will certainly come together
We're here to help (contact info)
