那些会10几种语言的男人

最近有些人说”翻译机越来越好 所以你的语言能力未来不好用”
我部分同意, 不过我不觉得语言能力会完全被淘汰

语言是打开对方的心得美好的工具
如果你用对方听得懂得外语的话, 你说的话只能到达对方的耳朵

如果你用对方的母语说话, 你说的话可以到达对方的心里
这就是语言学习的美好

语言学习不是”学习”
而是探索未知的事情和开阔自己的视野的一种快乐的旅程

Why don’t you start
this enjoyable journey?

英语学前准备

首先明白语言学习是需要长期持续投入时间成本的. 一旦停止就全部前功尽弃, 学英语就像攀岩 停止了就会掉下悬崖 一种是不可能再来 还有一种是再次从头再来.

学前准备

  1. 自己学习英语要来做什么?
  2. 找一段演讲或电影的对白(3~5分钟内的) 把内容文字打印或抄写下来(在没有学习音标前就先听下, 学习完音标和发音后开始跟着视频模仿).
  3. 开始学习音标及发音(先了解些美式和英式的区别).
  4. 定制自己单词词库(自己生活中看到想到的东西, 工作中用到的单词, 打印或抄写下来)

My preparation

A1: 基本的日常对话, 主要是阅读一些技术文档资料及国外新闻.

A2: youtube-30 Day Challenge by Matt Cutts

A3: 《赖世雄音标》《谢孟媛发音篇》
