  这道话题卡有两个切入点可以入手,可以说地点也可以说是具体某个人。如果从地点来说,可以从最常见的某个学校中学到的事情着手,也可以从异国他乡获得的相关的不同的文化知识来讲。如果从单个人的角度来看,各位烤鸭不妨参考之前老烤鸭给出的有关人物相关的一些话题卡Describe someone who is knowledgeable 描述知识渊博的人 来找一些灵感。只要注意这两点选其一扣住题目,那么就不难展开陈述了。


  Something I learned from someone was about some basic Vietnamese from a teacher of mine named Ellen who is a very professional language teacher trainer in the U.S.


  Last year I got some training in language teaching from a certified professional trainer in Cambridge. One day morning in Sept., she gave us a language course about Vietnamese in Vietnamese which we didn’t have any knowledge about. Plus, she was very strict with us in terms of learning. So, I even got butterflies in my stomach and worried that I might not pick up anything about it because you know how hard it is for a beginner or even a learner with zero foundation to learn how to blurt out a sentence.


  However, what happened next made us just can’t believe it’s real. Under some guidance using some gestures and facial expressions together with some realia, we managed to say some greetings and personal information in Vietnamese.


  I felt it was one of the most memorable periods last time. Because you would imagine how magical it is when you had been able to pick up some Vietnamese in the class where only lessons taught in Vietnamese!


  Since then on, She just became my role model in language teaching. I hope I could one day make a difference at least in my own little circle.
