六月有奖征文:Me and My Foreign Teacher

作者:王昕睿

    At the start of this term, I  felt excited to hear that we would have a foreign teacher. Communicating with a foreign teacher is crucial for English majors.

   The first class empresses me a lot. Our teacher Del is from Scotland, but what is strange, he doesn't have a strong accent of British English! I still remembered I can understand what he said 70%. And I can understand him 90%! Actually, I didn't feel at ease on Del's classes at first, because I was not used to listening to a foreigner speaking English all the time. It's kind of hard for me to understand every word and sentence. Nevertheless, Del is so patient that he can explain everything he said and I can keep up with him.Therefore, I think I have made progress with the help of Del.

   Del is a interesting person. He has his unique gestures, and he will thumbs up and say “Good good ,fantastic when he wants to compliment something. And we always imitate him after classes!

Besides, he is really warmhearted, and he is always ready to help us. Once I asked him how to express the address where you can deliver stuffs. However, he told me almost all kinds of addresses and he wrote them down and sent me on the WeChat. I began to like this teacher.

   I often check the moments on the WeChat, Del would like to share his moments from time to time. I always like his photos and make a comment under them, and he replies me in no time. He also likes my photos and makes comments.He has a good temper, he will never let off steam towards us, even though we made a lot of mistakes.He will tell jokes to tell us what should we do instead of teaching us just boring lessons, so he has a sense of humor.

   From my point of view, it is conducive for us to communicate with a pure foreigner. We can learn a lot while talking to him,it doesn’t matter if you learn English culture or want to improve your listening skill.As English majors, we ought take heart of grace to talk to foreigners as possible as you can.Foreign teachers can provide us with a good opportunity to communicate with them, which can improve our listening skills and spoken English.Although there are not so many foreign teachers, as long as you can grasp the chances you will get improved in English.

   Foreign teachers are also cultural envoy. Del will tell us his country’s culture and tell the difference between ours. Whenever western festivals are in the corner, he will let us know the origins and how the celebrate the festivals which broadens our horizons. We would like to tell Del some festivals, such as Spring Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, Dragon Boat Festival and so on.

Cultural interactions are of great importance in our life, but cultural difference can not hinder us to become friends. We will have a lot of fun while sharing different cultures with each other, which also can help the foreign teachers adapt to the environment in China. To be frank, if you want to learn English well,it is better to learn the English better, which will help you comprehend the language at ease.

   I think Del will not only be my teacher ,but also be my friend, who is always peppy about his job and ready to help you solve your problems.I also want to show my gratitude to Del, for he is the first person who make truly understood the language’s glamour.
