2011年1月31日

当犀利的金发女士祝贺李娜创造了中国网球历史时,李娜的一句"I always do the first one!"显示出无敌霸气;当谈到在比赛开始阶段是不是很紧张时,李娜拿自家老公开起了玩笑,"I didn't have a good evening last night, my husband sleep like this...I was waking up every hour."当被问到是什么帮助她成功翻盘时,李娜的直率回答"Prize money."笑倒全场……

李娜在澳网半决赛中战胜了世界排名第一的沃兹尼亚奇,缔造了中国网球的新历史。而在赛后采访中,她又用流利幽默的英语逗得全场老外笑成一片。如此豪迈爽快的回答,如此脱口而出的英语,还在学习路上摸索的我们也很想从娜姐那里取取经啊!
话说娜姐以前英文就这么好吗?一位在澳网赛事中与中国球员打过无数次交道的外国记者如是说:“我还记得几年前采访李娜时,她曾经听不太懂我一些比较简单的提问……如今已全然不同了,李娜的英语水准明显提高,而且她还经常在回答中体现出幽默感。”可见娜姐过去的英文也不咋地,那么她是如何达到现在的境界?
学英语要泡在环境中

首先,环境因素起了很大作用。网球选手们一年四季都要在世界各地打比赛,而李娜又经常在国外训练,耳濡目染之下英语水平自然有所提高。说到这里有些同学就要抱怨了:“我又没有出国的机会,没有那么好的学习环境。”其实没环境也可以自己创造啊。李娜能够用英语流利对答,这也让我们的女子乒乓队很是羡慕,于是她们就在食堂贴了许多英语术语,让自己能够经常看见,反复记忆。

(中国女乒队的食堂门口)
耳濡目染不是非要呆在一堆外国人中间,经常在沪江上泡泡,看看感兴趣的英语文章,听听各类音频资讯,参加参加自己喜欢的英语节目,放松的时候用英文歌曲、影视美剧来愉悦身心,这也是完完全全的耳濡目染啊!况且沪江上还有美女外教Alison老师,有啥不懂的都可以请教。而从文章、节目中学习到的那些知识点就可以记录在小纸片上,贴在看得见的地方经常背背;听力音频则可以进驻自己的MP3,在路上啊躺床上啊都可以拿来温习。


学英语就要脸皮厚

浸泡在英语环境中是一点,但是在小编看来,娜姐英语牛还得益于她自身一个非常大的优点,那就是自信、敢说。娜姐自己说过:“反正英语学习,我觉得就是要脸皮厚,不管对不对,直接就跟老外说。反正语法不对啥的,慢慢老外也能听懂,有时候还能教教你。”
很多同学担心自己的发音是不是不够好,语法是不是用错了,会不会被人嘲笑……这么一大堆的顾虑让你还没开口就已经失败了。李娜说英语时也会有语法问题,但是因为她有自信、有张扬外露的性格,即使说出来的英语有语病,也让人觉得她是个有趣的人。澳洲电视台的评论员就说她有cute personality嘛~~
所以想说什么尽管说出来,最怕的就是不敢说。说错了可以纠正,不说的话那就连纠正的机会都没啦!如果你觉得自己现在脱口说还有些困难,可以先从照着读做起来。沪江部落的每日一说有参与吗?没的赶快给我读起来,还有机会得到Alison老师的点评呢。总之记住娜姐的话:学英语就是要脸皮厚!

虽然娜姐最终没能捧起本届澳网赛事的冠军奖杯,但是她虽败犹荣,我们仍然要为这位heroin献上最热烈的掌声!

今天是2010年的24号,再次坐在办公室翻看以前的老照片,心里。。。说不上来的怀念和温暖!就像我喜欢齐秦的歌一样,百听不厌!!!想起以前在新加坡的日子,想起刚到EF的日子,遇到的第一个团队,带过的第一拨学生,上过的第一堂汗如雨下般的life club,第一次看到学生以我名字给我做的饼干,跟他们一起hang out,第一次参加学校的summer pary,第一次。。。很多很多。想起这么多的第一次第一次,第一次和每一次见到我可爱学生们的能流出蜜般的开心和幸福。。。记得曾经问过安娜:“如果我想转行,你觉得我适合做什么?”安娜问我很多相关问题,得到我所有的答案都是上课,用我知道的东西去影响别人。最后,得出结论:我还是最爱做老师!我想也许这个答案其实就一直在我的骨子里,在每次我上课时跟学生们说:“ 我特别爱你们。”的答案中!!!我爱你们,我可爱的学生们,无论你们真实年龄多大,在我嘴里都是:“这孩子不做handout." haha。写完真舒服向那些耐心看完这篇文章的学生致敬!!!有点moving,hehe.没办法,我就是这么个酸人:)

1
Alright,let's get you all cleaned up. What's your
daddy gonna say if you go back all stinky like this?

2
Let me just clean that up.That
looks good. A little bit here.

3
- You clean up nice, little fella.
- I think he's starting to look like me.

4
Diego, what do you think?

5
- Maybe we shouldn't do this.
- Why not?

6
Because if we save him, he'll grow up to be a hunter.

 And
who do you think he'll hunt?

7
Maybe because we save
him,he won't hunt us.

8
Yeah, and maybe he'll grow fur and a
long skinny neck and call you Mama.

9
- What's your problem?
- Nothing. Let's go. I'm freezing my tail off.

10
Hey,Diego. You frozen back there?

11
- Get down.
- What?

12
- Get down and follow me.
- What's going on?

13
At the bottom of Half Peak,there's
an ambush waiting for you.

14
- What?
- What do you mean, "ambush"?

15
- You set us up.
- It was my job.

16
- I was suppose to get the baby, but then...
- You brought us home for dinner.

17
- That's it. You're out of the herd.
- I'm sorry.

18
No, you're not. Not yet.

19
- Listen, I can help you.
- Stay close, Sid. We can fight our way out.

20
You can't. The pack's too
strong.You have to trust me.

21
Trust you? Why in the
world would we trust you?

22
Because I'm your only chance.

23
Hello, ladies.

24
- Look who decided to show up.
- Diego, I was beginning to worry about you.

25
No need to worry. In about two minutesyou'll
be satisfying your taste for revenge.

26
Very nice.

27
I see the sloth. And he's got the baby.

28
Don't give away your positions until yousee
the mammoth. He's the one to surprise.

29
You want to maul something, don't you think?

30
- I wanna maul.
- Then what are you waiting for?

31
No, I said wait for the mammoth.

32
Back scratcher. Eat my powder!

33
Loop-de-loop.

34
Slalom! Slalom, baby!

35
Sorry, fellas. He got
a little frostbite.

36
Get him.

37
Surprise!

38
OK, follow me. We'll pick up
Sid and get outta here while we can.

39
Come on, Diego,let's
bring this mammoth down.

40
There he is.

41
That's right. Where's the baby?

42
Survival of the fittest.

43
I don't think so. Yeah.

44
- What are you doing?
- Leave the mammoth alone.

45
Fine. I'll take you down first.

1
I'll remember. Hey, hey,hey!

2
Hey, wait up, partner!
Hold on!

3
Wait, wait, wait!
I gotta gotta tell you something.

4
Well, well nice trench.

5
- OK, let's go.
- No, no. Bad trench.

6
Come on, we'll swim over
this thing.

7
Whoa, whoa partner.
Little red flag going up.

8
Something's telling me
to swim through it, not over it.

9
Are you looking at this thing?

10
It's got death
written all over it.

11

I’m sorry, but
I really, really, really
think we should swim through.

12
And I'm really, really done
talking about this. Over we go.

 

13

- come on
- Trust me on this.
- Trust you?

14
Yes, trust.
It's what friends do.

15
Look! Something shiny!

16
- Where?
- oh,it just swam over the trench.

17
- Come on, we'll follow it!
- OK!

18
Boy, it sure is clear up here.

19
Exactly. And look at that-
there's the current.

20
We should be there in no time.

21
Hey, little guy.

22
You wanted to go
through the trench.

23
I shall call him Squishy,
and he shall be mine.

24
And he shall be my Squishy.
Come here, Squishy.

25
Come here, little Squishy.

26
- Dory, that’s a jellyfish!
- Bad Squishy! Bad Squishy!

27
Get away!

28

- come here
- Let me see that.
- Don't touch it. Don't touch it.

29
I won't touch it.
I just want to look.

30
Hey! How come
it didn't sting you?

31
It did.
It's just that-

32
Hold still.

33
I live in this anemone...

34
and I'm used
to these kind of stings.

35
Come here. It doesn't look bad.
You'll be fine.

36
But now we know, don't we...

37
that we don't want
to touch these again.

38
Let's be thankful this time
it was just a little one.

39
Don't move.

40
- This is bad, Dory.
- Hey, watch this!

41
You can't catch me

42

Dory,Dory
Don't bounce on the tops!

43
They will... not sting you!

44
- The tops don't sting you!
- Two in a row! Beat that!

45
Dory, listen to me.
I have an idea-a game.

46
- A game?
- Yes.

47
- I love games! Pick me!
- Here's the game.

48
Whoever can hop the fastest
out of these jellyfish wins!

49
Rules, rules, rules!

50
You can't touch the tentacles.
Only the tops.

51
Something about tentacles.
Got it. Go!

52
Wait!Wait! Not something about 'em,
it's all about 'em!

53
Wait, Dory!

54
Gotta go faster
if you want to win!

55
Wait a minute! Dory!

56
We're cheating death now.
That's what we're doing.

57
But we're having fun
at the same time.

58
I can do this.
Just be careful.

59
Yeah, careful I don't
make you cry when I win!

60
I don't think so!

61
Give it up, old man.

62
You can't fight evolution.
I was built for speed.

63
The question is, Dory,
are you hungry?

64
- Hungry?
- Yeah.

65
'Cause you're about
to eat my bubbles!

66
Duck to the left!
Right there!

67
The clownfish is the winner!

68
We did it! Look at us!

69
Dory?

70
Oh, no.

71
Dory! Dory!
