It’s grateful for me to have the opportunity to share what I’ve gotten from Instructor Clare’s Biz English Class. This is my second time to sign up for her course at the community college. But what I’m experiencing is still refreshingly interesting because of Clare’s lively and systematic pedagogy in terms of overall Biz English.
First of all, Teacher Clare always offer plentifully comprehensive handouts, practical drills, as well as fruitful class flows for her students. No matter it’s reading, writing or listening-oriented materials, they contain so many parts worthy of our further pick up. Besides, each attendee is strongly encouraged to speak English through specific theme-driven English tools. While we speak, she usually corrects our oral-talk mistakes in time. This way of learning is helpful for busy adults, particularly those full-time white-collar workers like me.
Secondly, with her abundant business background in her earlier working experiences, I’m allowed to understand some useful tips and realistic ways of application when it comes to the biz English correspondence. Under her guidelines, my biz emails are getting more and more professional, which are able to receive positive responses from my overseas clients in a frequent manner.
The last but not least, to any current office workers in the private biz sector, given the dominant trends of globalization and mercantilism in the world, to advance our English in a life-long, nonstop way is critical for our survival and competitiveness in the job market. Motivation and persistence are fundamental for everyone who’s like to improve his biz English usage, though, I’ve also realized that taking an efficiently smart and appropriate way to learn English is all but the same important. I assure you that the breakthrough would be coming soon if you definitely follow Teacher Clare’s instructions.
看過Sherlock(新世紀福爾摩斯)嗎，若看過，印象最深的地方是什麼？ 我印象最深的地方不是劇情，或是配樂而是Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch(班尼迪克·康柏拜區)美好的口音。 作為一個擁有Spirit of Drawing Sword的五好青年，我決定向英文亮劍。 根據 Marvel系列由 Benedict Cumberbatch主演的«Doctor Strange»(奇異博士)，Stephen Strange 透過向Ancient One學習由一位普通人，變成了能夠拯救世界的超級英雄。In order to conquer the fearsome English, I need my Ancient One. 於是我選擇了Clare教練指導，開始我的萬里征途!就像是杜聿明將軍在訓練第5軍的時候，向其部隊提出了這一口號：”Losing more sweat in peacetime means shedding less blood in war!” 九○年代初期，認知心理學家艾瑞克森（K. Anders Ericsson）等人，曾在柏林一流的音樂學院進行一項研究。 有關艾瑞克森的研究，最令人驚異的就是，他們發現沒有天生演奏家，也就是只練習一點點就能成為頂尖好手的，也沒有練習時數比別人都要來得多，最後卻還是技不如人的。 因此我每週除了向Ancient One報到外，也會在家中復習英文一個小時。 我得說這真是個重大突破，英文一下子就在我的時間分配K線圖中，連漲了好幾跟長紅棒。高登為自己的夢想踏上了旅程，登高遠望，未來讓我們拭目以待。
My dear teacher Clare, First of all, I'd like to say "Thank you". My English abilities, including listening, speaking and reading, are keeping improving since I've started to attend your basic-biz-English-driven course held at the community college. I am actually quite looking forward to participating in this regular class on the weekly basis. My work is usually busy. Often, I won't be home until 8 or 9 o'clock during the weekday. Although I'm not available for reviewing your materials as what a hard-study teen student shall do, I don't feel stressful in your class. Instead, week by week, by taking part in your 3-hour course, I find myself advancing in terms of the English talking,listening and reading skills naturally. Your course is perfectly suitable for the white-collar adults. Besides, the tuition charged by this community college is very competitively affordable to most citizens in Taipei. So I'll keep registering and learning with you next semester. Happy New Year! Sincerely Melissa
"With a lucky chance, my ex-colleague (in the military service)introduced Clare to me. Since then, I've joined Clare’s Business English Class offered in the Community College. Week by week, I've learnt a lot from her, particularly/especially in terms of business-driven vocabularies, phases, idioms, sentences and so on. Every class member is attracted to her (unique) teaching methodology. So I've never missed any class. At the same time, she encouraged me to attend TOEIC test by giving me some useful pointers. I followed her suggestions and took the test in April, 2014, without spending extra learning cost. My score turned out to be as high as 765, though, this figure was still not completely satisfactory to me. Here, I'd ike to say thanks to Clare. I will study English harder and lead myself to set foot in another promising career development path aiming at endless possibilities and visions." "After my participation in Teacher Clare's Spring-semester course, I have no hesitation in continuously registering her Autumn-semester course. This time, her book published in May is appointed as our designated textbook. This tool book, equipped with her abundant way of teaching at class, has become so greatly useful that every students, including both white-collar office workers and adults serving for other professionalism, can learn in an effectively efficient way. Clare is an earnest, respectful and adorable teacher. All of the attendees enjoy her class very much. Listening and shadowing are the two fundamental mottoes she'd repeatedly highlighted in the class. I'd like refer such a great teacher to anyone who's interested in English learning and improvement."
