朋友们,英语绝对很重要,发狠学习英语吧,特别是口语和听力,很实际
suusan 2005-05-21 23:27

来了一个多月了,说实在的,本人就是由于英语还有点优势才决定移民出国的,一大部分原因是因为孩子特别喜欢和向往,告诉我说将来一定要留学,咱作家长的怎嫫办,就一个宝贝女儿,实在不放心,同时也没有那摸多银子,移民真可谓为我们这种情况量身定做的办法,作为高级保姆照顾女儿我很乐意.过来以后发现英语很重要,很多移民的问题还是英语的问题.汇报一下英语发挥作用的几件事.温歌化过关自不必说,我见到过面对移民官一脸茫然的同胞,心里很尴尬,因为移民官的英语都是简单英语,同时问的问题也都是程式化的.落地后先安顿孩子,考试评估后教育官(香港来的)非安排孩子上比国内高一个年级,不是根据当时的考试成绩,而是一刀切,根据年龄,普通话争辩没有结果,只好打定主意到了学校再说.学校里我陈述了我的意愿和理由,讲说孩子英语障碍会严重影响课程的学习,进而会影响到申请大学时的学分,校长说他们没有权利改变决定,我说这对孩子不公平,校长说那还是尊重我的意见,但要让孩子走走看,让带课老师评估一下到底跟得上课程不.一星期后交费时我又和学校秘书讲起此事,秘书说转述给校长,快一个月时校长给我来了封信,说一部分考虑我的意愿,一部分根据孩子的表现,一部分征求孩子的意愿,决定让孩子低一年级上学,上学的事就这样敲定了。前两天突然有个女人打电话找我和我讨论孩子的防疫问题,说根据我们提交的免疫证,孩子还要打针,告诉我说需要我的签字,否则无法实施注射.我问清了什摸针,是否免费,是个别给我的孩子打还是该年龄段的都要注射,学校护工是否经过培训否则我选择带孩子上诊所注射。落地3天后打电话找到出国前网上发现的招收快餐店收银员的老板,让第二天面试,顺利通过让马上上班,但突然发现让我签的文件里面有一份至少干三个月的承诺,不敢贸然签署,回说再考虑考虑,放弃吧。后朋友介绍找到实验室的活,上班第二天因不熟悉路,不怕您笑话下错车站导致迟到30分钟,严重吧,重在解释,理由充分,给两个主管分别解释,问题不大。我遇到国内高级研究人员找到专业工作后干一阵子又丢掉的例子,因为无法交流和讨论,人总不能再给你配翻译吧。零零总总,想到那里写到哪里。孩子的衣服一定要多买夏天的体协山随意的绵体些长袖短袖衬衫最好,学校里面四季常温,应该在25度以上,冬天也是到学校就脱棉衣,穿成夏天的样子,当然不是夏天难捱时的裤衩背心之类的,最好是夏天首尾的那种穿着或晚春早秋时的穿着,朋友说冬天孩子都不穿秋裤,牛仔裤外面套上宽松的雪裤,进屋就脱掉。网上都说屋里20度以上,不尽如此,公寓温度自己控制,可以保持,如租别的私人房屋就未必了,棉被还是需要的,因为一旦低于20度,哪怕19。5度都有些冷,而地下室很冷,比楼上低2-4度,一定要改棉被。

谢谢一楼的朋友. 这正证实了我的计划是对的, 我正在发狠学英语.

中药 2005-05-22 12:44

谢谢楼主,顺便问一句,孩子的免疫证明16岁以上就不需要了吧,16岁是按年算,还是按过生日算,比如,按年算,已经16岁,6月登陆,8月才过16周岁(生日),还需不需要免疫证明。请知道者给予解答。谢谢。

suusan 2005-05-22 23:48

根据我的经历,孩子的免疫证明不一定非得花钱去什麽出入境之类的办理,那里的作用无非是给出标准的英文版本,如可能自己翻译配上原件完全可以,当然是保证翻译准确的基础上,我为什莫接到电话,就是因为开始没人要,后来当地健康中心发现孩子没有记录打电话问的,当时要求我发一份传真给他们,但一定要英文版本的,只是因为看得懂,我说没有传真机在手边,能不能给我个邮箱我以数码照片的方式发过去,最后就折磨办了。我感觉这里的一切都是你说什莫使什莫,相信你是这里的特点,至于说从什莫时候开始一定花钱办免疫证英文件一定是中介公司发起的习惯,想想我搬家丢了,为如何补办发愁现在想来真是多虑。想想吧你有原件在手,完全能证明孩子的记录,而这里的问题只是看不懂,而不是什莫要国家部门证明你没有撒谎,国人们时刻想着证明自己清白已成习惯了,像我拎着从沃尔马买的东西去superstore购物,到收银台不忘问一下这是我在沃尔玛买的东西,要不要check一下时,收银员赶紧说不用不用,其实我用不着告诉她,她的义务是相信我;就像在马路行人通道上,一队汽车停下来就为等你过马路时,我恍惚了,他们真是为等我吗?现在还改不了坏习惯总是一路紧赶慢赶跑过去,生怕耽误了汽车的时间,房东告诉我说这样有些傻,而这样做的绝对是中国人,怎磨办呢?我永远也忘不了北京街头一辆汽车贴着马路边从我身边呼啸而过的惊险镜头,吃一堑长的这一智我是永远忘不了了。总结此帖,孩子的免疫证明不一定非得花钱去什麽出入境之类的办理,自己根据别人的配上保证正确的翻译件足矣,但要保证正确游,否则孩子打错或漏打了针我不负责任。楼上明白了嘛?带上你的原件过来吧,配上翻译件,有把握的话到这现翻译都行

suusan 2005-05-28 01:57

"我是猫"你真苯,真得手把手教你呀?别人有办好的,特别是已在加国的朋友,把他们孩子的元件和译本发传真给你,或者给你个复印件,仔仔细系照葫芦画瓢,千万别搞错了.另外加上一句,我是办了国内出入镜的孩子免疫钲的,只是过来入学时没有人要,后来因为电脑中没有记录当地健康中心打电话要,,才觉得不一定非花钱办,只要有元件加上可靠的英文译本即可.我觉得这里不会因为你没有中国出入竟译本就拒绝你入学,你的任务就是提供元件加上英文译本让别人看青出.根据我的孩子的记录健康中心电话联系到我,认真解释为申摸孩子需要接受注射,同时告诉家长不签字他们决不能给孩子注射,同时告之还有一个月学校放假了,最好赶快注射,不然就耽搁了.就这一件事健康中心打了两次电话联系到我,同时还有两次电话留言(我上班了),负责任吧.如果无视你的免疫原始记录,仅仅因为你没有中国出入竟译本就拒绝你入学,那属于违法行为,没有学校敢做的.退一万步说,你的孩子就是从来没有接过种,我想健康中心的任务也仅仅是确定你没有传染病,可以入学,同时尽可能帮你补上免役进程,不可能拒绝入学.因为如果是必须的条件我想应该归移民局管,既申请移民时有孩子的家庭许提供孩子免疫记录,just like the police certificate we need to submit to prove that we are not supposed to commit a crime.房东告诉我如果家长将学龄儿童不送到学校,有人告发的话会被接受调查,既孩子是否在正常接受教育(及少数西人可能由母亲在家教孩子读书),如果证实你剥夺了孩子受教育的权利,任你是家长,也属于犯罪行为.

不是英语专业,只是英语爱好者而已.个人认为国内的考级并不是绝对的,经常听到过了六级的人听力仍存在很大障碍的例子,本人两次过了六级(97年和2004年),因为便宜,社会考生50元,但当时觉得听力和口语还是有很大问题,还是呀司考试帮助最大,复习过程逼得你全面掌握.

nice message and experience...

suusan 2005-09-11 02:25

Thank you. I have been very busy recently as a hard working woman. I can hardly squeeze regular time to browse this forum where I used to be active before. Actually I am addicted to making money, it is bringing a lot of happiness to me. You see it is easy with time passing the bucks drop into your pocket automatically. What we need to do is to kill time. The job is too easy to require too much thinking. I like it because I am a lazy woman who does not want to take up too much resposibilities offer too much thinking.

suusan 2005-09-11 04:57

You may get a job of 20-25 bucks per hour which is easy to deal with, when the pay is over 30 I don`t think it will be an easy job, it requires you to think a lot every minute, that is really tough and that is the last thing I want to do currently. You got it? I am not a person who is ambitious.

suusan 2005-10-11 00:42

To my experience, it is good for the new comers I mean Chinese to manage a job needing no much thinking, whatever it is, labour or low level technician, what is important is that it allows you to have free talk with foreigners. It works very well for one to develop Ennglish level. Currently I have 2 at the same time, one is considered a decent one, but that disapoints me by relatively silent circumstance around you when working, `cause one has to be concentrated with no distraction at all. Another one though is an entry level worker I really have benefited a lot from it and so far been enjoying it very much for language consideration. People around me say my English is good enough still I never give up a chance to learn. A long way to go, that is a life job and could never be overdone. To the point, to learn English when working is a better way than to take a so called English course, don`t feel frustrated when you are doing an unsatisfied job, at the beginning we need it as an on job English learning course, take it for granted and take every minute to learn, that is a positive attitude towards life.

Aim 2005-10-11 00:59

楼主的英语又大大进步了!

yao2004bj 2005-10-11 01:21

楼主的英语很好很好! 但是离精通还是有距离的,楼主加油啊!
另外,请问,你translation in mind占多少比例啊!

suusan 2005-10-12 17:12

If I am not misunderstanding you you want to know if I need to make translation in mind from Chinese into English before I speak or answer sommebody back, that is a good question, I have to say at beginning that is a procedure one can never skip for one can`t help. I never thought about it before, but a good and fluent English definatey depends on thinking in English other than thinking in Chinese and then giving an immediate translation

suusan 2005-10-12 17:27

Don`t think I am a person who likes to show off. No at all, I take it as a kind of English writing assignment to fulfil. I mean it that I never give up any chance to learn. Meanwhile I know there should be some patient readers here, this draws me to work more on this. You said you want to practice oral English? then start from here, write out something about your experience you want to share with others, another way to chat with friends, isn`t it?

suusan 2005-10-12 17:29

As long as you can write something out, I`m sure that is based on what you already can say out too , that`s a workable way for practice..

kinndydu 2005-10-12 18:17

看来要好好努力,要不过去就没法找工作了。

suusan 2005-10-12 18:48

That`s right. Start right now, never expect that it is a natural thing to speak well after one is put into real language environment, remember effort is inevitable.

suusan 2005-10-12 18:50

oral and listening trainings are more practical.

I think you need more idioms. Sometimes its a little difficult to understand and learn. let me give you a method.
The best and recommended way to understand idioms is to "remember" what it means for what is translated as. When you remember an idiom, you're only remembering from what is actually translated as. Don't try to "stay" with the idiom itself. Just remember the actual meaning and you would understand it. It's best to learn the idiom, but not likely to use it. If you do that, you can gain pretty well on the English.

suusan 2005-10-14 05:58

My ceiling, I am sorry, what you said is quite confusing me, explain more please? Is that the talk to me or someone else? You quoted what I said, that is for sure.

yao2004bj 2005-10-14 07:32

do you want your english to be as good as English native speaker?

Formal English is generally easier for the non-native speaker to understand than informal English. When a native speaker wants to clarify a point to another native speaker, he/she generally uses progressively more casual language. The contrary is true of the non-native speaker. Speaking more formally includes:
1.Elimination of slang and informal expressions. For example, "That is not necessary," is easier to understand than "You don't have to do that."
2.Limiting the use of two and three-word verbs (run into, get across, etc.). For example, "I will organize that," is easier to understand than "I'll set it up."
3.Using Latin-based root words in place of more casual choices. Latin-rooted words in English generally indicate a more formal or academic speaking style, and the non-native speaker is more likely to have studied a more formalized, generic form of English in his/her home country or intensive ESL program.

what you said is still a little different with native speakers, so I think you may need more idioms or slangs to help you improve your English

just my opinion

谢谢楼主的经验分享

suusan 2005-10-16 20:56

To yao2004bj
I don`t quite agree with you here, Actually the hardest thing is dealing with slangs or what you said idioms when we talk and listen. That is the biggest barrier to block us. I have got a lot of friends who have been using English in their work all the time or living in north America for more than 10 years and they are not ashamed of sharing experience with me. They told me honestly that one like us can never get to the level of native speakers. One may say I have no problems in communicating when at work. That`s all I am afraid, for you are discussing sth. you are familiar with so you can`t help guessing or predicting what is going to be said next and probably you are right and you can keep your talk on, on the other hand the person talking to you less or more takes good care of you by using relatively easier thing or so called by you formal language and trying to avoid slangs and idioms to help you understand. Suppose two LAOWAI beside you talk casualy you can hear clearly but in normal or even faster speed and give no chance for you to predict, challenge how much you can understand, what usually happens you are lost frequently and maybe you don`t understand what they are talking about at all. Don`t feel frustrated, that is normal for every one who takes English as non mother language. To me talking in a way you feel comfortable and relax is the first, don`t care if it is too formal or even ignore grammatical thing (most speaking teachers recommend), don`t care too much if you sound like native one how much you can apply slangs in your talk, let those difficult things go into your listening comprehensive work, whenever the natives talk in slangs you don`t understand, ask them for help they would be very pleased to show you what the meaning behhind is, next time try to use it when you talk for it is yours already. Want to talk freely a good imitation is necessary, learn to imitate more to follow the natives language habits can help you gain the feeling you are making progress every day, that`s great. Good to share En learning experience with you.

what you said is still a little different with native speakers, so I think you may need more idioms or slangs to help you improve your English

just my opinion

:wdb1: I am really impressed,sister. The reply you wrote above shows me that you write fairly well, i am wondering if your listening and speaking are as well as your writing? Are you still in China or have landed in Canada already? I would guess that you either majored in English in University in China or are English teacher? :wdb6: The words you used in the passage are various and I can see that those words very unlikely come from a basic English learner. May I ask how long have you studied in English? Your grammer is pretty good, your vocabulary is affluent, and you have made up yourself a couple of new words such as `latin-based`,`three-word`.....etc.. well done,sis. :wdb19:

I agree with both of you Suusan and Yao, your experiences are really helful. Now i would like to share a bit of my experience of studying in English as well. I found that most Chinese people don't speak English in a POLITE way,they are used to speak it in the Chinese way of speaking. When they ask someone for a favour or something, they tend to ask without using these modal verbs such as `Would,May,Could,...etc..` and other words like` please, thanks`. When they talk over a topic, they tend to make the conversation sounds like an argument:wdb6: sometimes , because they are used to forgetting using the phrases like `You are right,but I can't TOTALLY agree with you...`instead of saying `I can't agree with you `,`your opinion is not right, mine is correct` instead of saying `Your opinion is ESSENTIAL,but mine is VITAL too`.....etc..... it is very easy for us to forget to bear in mind that speaking English in a polite way,and Chinese way of speaking English sometimes can cause offense slightly or severely to the person or people you are talking to:wdb6: , then there it goes the arguement. This kind of cases have happened to me numerous times, and the person i was talking to felt offened, of couse the person is not Chinese.

In the nutshell, just be aware of the way you speaking English, especially when you are in a foreign country, it's better always remember how to make a good conversation with natives ,and how not to be rude which you don't intend to be,because people are not always understanding sometimes,they may think you are rude,but you never meant to be.

suusan 2005-10-18 23:01

I write what I speak.

suusan 2005-10-18 23:08

That`s quite practical. I always set a target realistic for me, not too high to reach. If one`s objective is always in the air and one can never reach or whenever you see it you only feel so frustrated that you are always ready to give it up, that`s not yours.

suusan 2005-10-18 23:27

Then lower it change to aother one. To me I always try to use easy words to say. Actually that`s the most difficult point for English learning. It is hard to seperate easy language from hard slangs and idioms. When you use easy words probably you are using slangs or idioms that are usually made up of easy words. When we talk to natives I am sure we have the almost the same experience that the same expression you tried very hard to express sometimes even in so called Chinglish, when Laowai speak it out so freely and easily, particularly some easy and short response or quickly answer back, we (if you are a always ready learner) have a strong feeling that "I got it", it came out to be so easy. That`s the way we learn English from everyday life, and that`s one of the ways we learn good english. When you pick the idioms in this way you have learnt by heart and you can say it next time.

yao2004bj 2005-10-18 23:39

:wdb6: :wdb6: that will be an awkard problem then. haha.... anyway,ones can't earsily change their habits. according to my experience, we can conquer this unconscious and impolite talking by practising English more, especially the part of greeting and attending people, before long you will find your manners, and of course natives that you used to talk to would start to think that you are a well-educated person.

remember `Practice makes perfect` , there is no other way out there to learn and improve your English. it's hard,but never give up trying if you want to achieve the certain level of English skill.

Good idea!Thanks!
我觉得写BLOG(英语为主)也是学习英语的一种方法,起码每天要逼着自己学习

I agree with Suusan that study English while we work. What a good idea that someone pay us while we improve our listening and oral English!
Life is real and more funny.

I find a easy job after I came here two months just thinking practise English. In fact,it's more than I would expected. I can learn more through work. To understand the life style of Canadian---it brings me a lot of fun.

宠辱不惊,坐看庭前花开花落;去留无意,漫随天外云卷云舒。
请大家点击我名字下方的天平图标,给加点声望吧!万分感谢!!

Suusan是陪孩子读书的吧,为什么学校开始让上高一级年级,是因为年龄还是孩子的成绩,如果想让孩子读自己选择的年级,在国内需要作什么准备?谢!

busy working hardly have time to answer back timely, sorry about this.

Why? you are the hostess of this forum. You should share your experience to all of us frequently. Where are you going to?
Come on. We need you.

Thank you. I have been very busy recently as a hard working woman. I can hardly squeeze regular time to browse this forum where I used to be active before. Actually I am addicted to making money, it is bringing a lot of happiness to me. You see it is easy with time passing the bucks drop into your pocket automatically. What we need to do is to kill time. The job is too easy to require too much thinking. I like it because I am a lazy woman who does not want to take up too much resposibilities offer too much thinking.

这样用有问题吗?

楼主所言极是,抓紧时间努力学习英语!

I am watching American Tv and listening CNN via net. Now I feel my listening is much better. but how to improve my oral English in China?

Go to English chatrooms and find some net pals(I mean native English speakers, not English learners) to talk with every day and you'll improve very fast. :wdb6:

没错 英语是绝对非常重要,要发狠学习,但已经在心里发了无数次狠了,行动上狠不了,还是原地踏步,晕死了

其实我现在从不学英语,但我又天天都在学,时时都在学.不要把学习英语当作任务,而是要当成习惯.不得不承认,可能我们得学习一辈子也不会达到母语的程度.现在上班时周围都是老外,展开你的话题聊吧,竖起你的耳朵听吧.

我要努力 把英语当成习惯:wdb9:
