【上課心得分享/學生的話】

Before taking this Jazz Music English class, I had no idea how to improve my English at all. I just memorized vocabularies and listened to English videos just like other people. And it had been for a while. But it is impossible for me to improve English without any “NEW INPUT”. Although I can realize and memorize every single word I heard, I still don’t know how to say those words correctly and fluently.

After class, Miss Lee told me to write down my thoughts in English. It was quite hard at the beginning for I was a little afraid of writing English. But when I got used to write, I can write down everything I feel like to write, just like these short paragraphs I’m writing now. I can speak English more fluent than before.

English is a very useful tool for everyone to explore the world. Learning English can help me connect to the world. So don’t be afraid to learn English and control it. I will see a whole new world ahead in my future.

今天是第一堂課,對我來說,這是我上過最有趣的英文課了!原來,‘WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD’除了有1967年Louis Armstrong沙啞低沈、動人心弦的版本,還有1995年夏威夷Israel Kamakawiwo’ole輕快愉悅、如沐春風的版本。特別的是,老師還因這位富有傳奇色彩的歌手,進而介紹了夏威夷群島,甚至珍珠港事件、亞利桑那號戰艦記念館…剎那間有聽英文上歷史課的錯覺。 你以為只有這樣嗎?別忘了,課程重點還有「創意寫作」喔!而今天老師引領創意的方式,100%打中我這繪本和動畫迷呀!原來男版的灰姑娘(Cinderella)可以被改編得這麼有創意,一直戳中我笑穴!還有可愛的Mr. MONKEY,他設法解決問題(客戶需求)的精神無論小孩、大人都應學習。
