“You are not alone.”

Hi, everyone. The beginning of the 2020 turned out to be quite harsh for many places around the world, but the news about Wuhan has struck each family on the planet. I got the messages from my friends in Brazil, Canada and Australia, along with expressing their concerns about the scale of the disease, they are all amazed at the timely and well-organized measures implemented by the Chinese government to help infected people and protect others. The thing you may not have realized is that the whole world is looking up to China, admiring its resources, learning from China how to remain strong, powerful and decisive under such challenging conditions.

The implementation of online learning is now your personal challenge to test if you are determined enough to pursue your roles and not give up. Be sure that you are not alone and all the teachers in Lanzhou University will provide you with all the necessary assistance and support.

Now, let me give you some tips about the organization of the online self-studying process. First and foremost, please recycle the things you’ve learned and listened to. For example, if you read an English story, you should try to retell it right away. At times it might be difficult to do it at first. So, if it is difficult for you, you can write down the key words and use them to retell the story. Next, it’s hard to over-estimate the value of listening to the authentic English resources. You are required to listen and repeat, trying to sound as much as possible like it sounds in the audio. This activity will help your pronunciation. Besides, you may also want to record yourself and listen to how you say the things. Last but not the least, you are required to keep the record of the new vocabulary you’ve learned on the paper and rewrite it as often as you can. Please pay attention to and don’t forget to write down the forms of the new words for it will reduce the possibility of saying such mistake like “I study physical.” “Physical”is adjective (adj.), but here you need a noun to make sentence correct. You need to say, “I study physics.” “Physics” is a noun, not “physical”. What’s more, you should also write down the phrases that are new and useful to you and you may try translating from Chinese to English to help yourself remember the phrases.

I hope this information will be helpful. Please stay focused and let us know if you have any other questions.

Thank you, I wish you and your families to remain optimistic and healthy.

With love

Yours,

Irene

“你不是孤身一人”

嗨,大家好。对全世界很多地方来说,刚开始的2020年似乎不是特别友好,尤其是有关武汉的消息牵动着千万人的心。我收到了来自巴西,加拿大和澳大利亚朋友的消息,他们都为中国政府在帮助感染患者和保护他人所采取的及时,有组织的措施感到惊讶。你可能没有意识到,现在全世界的目光都聚焦在中国,他们赞叹中国丰饶的物资,并向中国学习如何在巨大的挑战面前保持镇定,顽强以及果敢的心态。

现在,参与网上教学是你们应该要面对的个人挑战了,它将挑战你们是否有足够的坚定意志以及顽强决心来继续自己作为学生的职责。请记住你们不是孤身一人在战斗,兰大所有的老师都会为你们提供必要的支持和帮助。

那么现在,请允许我给你们一些如何参与网上个人教学的小窍门。首先,你要反复学习听到的或是学到的内容。比如说你读了一篇英语故事,你应该尝试着将它立刻复述出来,可能一开始会有点困难。如果你觉得这样的练习有些困难,你可以先记下重要单词,然后利用这些单词来复述整个故事。第二,练习听说原汁原味的英语素材对英语提升有极大的帮助。你应该边听边跟读,努力模仿材料里的发音。这种练习可以帮助提高你的发音。除此之外,你也可以录下自己说的然后跟材料进行对比。最后,你应该记下你学过的新词,常背常练习。不要忘记写下单词的词性,这样做会避免出现类似“我学习身体的/物理的(physical)”的错误。这里,physical(物理的)是形容词,而句里所要求的是名词,你应该说“我学习物理(physics)”。这里,物理(physics)才是名词。此外,你也应该记下那些新的,对你有用的短语,可以通过英汉互译的方式来帮助你记住它们。

我希望上述这些对你们有用。请认真专注学习,如果有问题的话不要忘记联系我们。

谢谢大家,祝愿大家及家人精神饱满,身体健康。

爱你们的
颜琳
