英語線上家教-易森語言-第二次上課心得

上週外籍老師有事,所以請假,我選擇不找代課老師,所以就延後到這週才上第二堂課,主題一樣是Information Overload,不過今天的課比較有趣點。

今天開場先討論了一下各項新聞的來源,有newspaper、TV、Radio、Internet、Magazine和Other people,結果我發現我竟然所有資訊來源不是從朋友在FB的動態,不然就是用網路…

然後今天主要做的是一個Quiz,有一個聲音檔放在Google Drive,然後有六個問題要回答是A還是B:

  1. Do you watch TV news regularly?
  2.  Do you usually read the newspaper in depth?
  3. What is your opinion of most news reports?
  4. You wake up in the morning and find that there’s a breaking story (something that is happening right then). Would you turn on the TV or computer to follow the story?
  5. Some people say that the news is all bad, and that it’s often full of despair.What’s your reaction to that comment?
  6. Some people feel immobilized by the news. Does that happen to you?

然後不同題目選A和選B的會不同分數,最後做一個加總。

其中在這些問答當中有相當多的單字,然後老師試著要我解釋一些比較難的單字,用比較簡單的單字解釋。

Nica老師大概是發現我口說不太流利,所以讓我把題目和選項都念一遍,糾正我的發音。

整個上課的氣氛就是很歡樂,但也會學到一些單字,和發現自己容易錯的文法,因為有實際用也比較容易記起來。

統計分數的結果有這三類的人:

  • newsjunkie.
  • person who consumes news in moderation.
  • news resister.

結果沒意外我是news resister:

You may have an underlying distrust of the media or be worried about the barrage of news that invades our lives 24/7. However, it’s still important to stay informed about what‘s going on in the world around you.

Nica老師算是開朗型的人,所以上課氣氛比想像的輕鬆很多。下次要嘗試多講些話。

下次次上課又遇到國外假期,所以大概再上課要到明年了…沒意外也會再寫心得出來。
