IB终身学习者的典范之一!

 

Hello everyone, I am Ms.Hu, 53 years old, from Songzi, Hubei. I was a real farmer. It’s nice and lucky for me to have the chance to study and work with you in Changsha WES Academy.

I graduated from Songzi No.3 Middle School in 1981. I didn’t enter into university because I didn’t take studying seriously when I was young. I had no choice but to go home and be a farmer.

When I came to Changsha WES Academy, I would meet foreign children and foreign teachers every day, but sadly I couldn’t communicate with them. Later, I found a teacher on the Internet called “Kingsoft Powerword”. Now, after finishing my own work and by taking advantage of fragments of time, I keep practicing my English, even if for only a few minutes: writing letters and words, marking the phonetic symbols, then reading silently and writing again. As the saying goes, everything comes to he who waits. With my persistent efforts day after day and year after year, finally, I can communicate with foreigners in our daily life or through WeChat.

For example, I’m the school bus assistant of Line 1 and in case bus time and station changes, I can inform the parents and students without difficulty. It’s also easy for me to communicate the school bus regulations in English. What’s more, I take care of the children in the canteen during lunch time. The foreign kids cannot speak Chinese and they always express their needs in English: “Ms. Hu, I want pineapple, cucumber, carrots, onions, potatoes, long beans, lettuce, corn and apple juice…” Some other students may look at me in surprise: “Ms. Hu, where did you learn English? Who taught you all this? ” I smiled, thinking that I have a teacher (app) who is unable to speak.

 

Dear students, 2017 is my fifth year since coming to CWA. Despite my salary which is not that remarkable, I do think that this is the best place that I ever stayed in my whole working life, a place where I can meet a lot of literate and high-quality people. After leaving school for almost 30 years, CWA makes me feel like returning to childhood. I’m happy to hear the children read and laugh every day, which enables me to leave all troubles behind me.

Dear children, mobile phone shouldn’t be considered as your friend, and video games as the rice. Make good use of your precious time! I am now regretting having missed the best time of learning. We should study hard and make progress every day.

Thank you!


大家好,我是胡阿姨,今年53岁,来自湖北松滋,曾经是一个地地道道的农民。很高兴能和你们在长沙玮希国际学校一起学习、工作,这是我们的缘分。

我1981年毕业于松滋三中,因为没有认真学习,大学与我擦肩而过,只好回家修补地球,也就是当农民。

后来我来到长沙玮希国际学校工作,每天面对的是外国小朋友、外国老师、而我无法与他们沟通。后来我在网上找到了一位老师,名叫“金山词霸”。每天把自己工作范围内的事情做完后,哪怕只有几分钟,我都要坚持练习几个单词,注上音标,然后多读和默写几遍。功夫不负有心人,在这样日复一日、年复一年坚持不懈的努力下,我终于能用简单的日常用语和老师对话或者发微信了。

比如,作为校车的跟车老师,如果校车时间、地点需要更改,我能熟练地用英文通知家长和学生;我也可以熟练地传达校车行为规范。另外,每天中午在餐厅给小朋友服务时,很多外国小朋友不会说中文,他们直呼“Ms. Hu, I want pineapple, cucumber, carrots, onions, potatoes, long beans, lettuce, corn and apple juice”来表达他们的需求。有些同学用诧异的眼光看着我:“胡阿姨,你在哪里学的英文?谁教你的?”我微微一笑——我有一位不会说话的老师。

同学们,今年是我来这所学校的第五年。虽然工资不高,但我觉得这所学校是我打工生涯中环境最好的地方,在这里遇见的都是有文化、高素质的人才。是这所学校让我在离开学校30年后仿佛又回到了童年。每天听到孩子们朗朗的读书声以及欢笑声,让我感到心情愉悦,可以把一切烦恼都抛到九霄云外。

同学们,你们不能把手机当朋友,游戏当米饭,用你们最珍贵的时间去努力学习吧!我现在是后悔都来不及,错过了最好的学习机会。让我们一起好好学习、天天向上!

We should study hard and make progress every day. Thank you!
