英聽怎麼練? 每個單字要會念

【聯合報╱記者張錦弘/專題報導】20141025

明年大學入學正式採計高中英聽成績,英聽已成中學生的基本能力。學者專家強調,英聽無法獨立學習,一定要認得足夠詞彙、學會單字發音,才能聽得懂;且平時聽完後最好複述一遍,才能深化記憶,再搭配熟悉題型,更有助拿高分。

My comments: Shadowing is a good way to improve listening in English.

Seeking Your Career–不斷接觸新的經驗 路就出來了

October 20th, 2014

The day before yesterday, a former student called me a few minutes after I got back home from the trip to Kinmen. She told me she had found a new job, but was not sure if she would like it. During our chat, I suggested some jobs which I thought might be interesting to her; however, she still sounded puzzled about her career.

This morning, I came across this news report while flipping through the newspapers I missed reading due to the trip. Hopefully, it would be helpful to young people who are seeking their career.

Xu-Jiang-Xiao-Wo Inscribed Rocks

October 19th, 2014

If I am asked about the 3-day trip to Kinmen, the first thing that flashes into my mind would be Xu-Jiang-Xiao-Wo Inscribed Rocks. Xu-Jiang is another name of Yu Da-yo (1503-1579), a general in the Ming Dynasty. In his free time, he often came to this place to rest or view the ocean. He wrote Xu Jiang Xiao Wo (虛江嘯臥) on the rock, which is behind the pavilion in the picture, meaning he himself shouted and lay here. Afterward, characters were inscribed on the rocks nearby.
