    Mercury(水星) Venus(金星) Earth(地球) Mars(火星) Jupiter(木星) Saturn(土星) Uranus(天王星) Neptune(海王星)……这首歌最近成为了小一预备班最火的歌曲,课堂上、楼道里、滑梯旁,甚至是卫生间,宝贝们稚嫩的歌声萦绕在每个角落。

    这些词汇在很多有些英语基础的成年人眼中都略显生僻,那又是谁把这些复杂、专业又充满浪漫气息的单词带到了英语课堂呢?这就是最受孩子们欢迎的集外教、歌神、玩具设计师、美食家、创意总监等多种身份于一身的名外教——Mr. Mike!

    上周,Mr. Mike就和我说,周三要邀请他的朋友来和孩子们一起玩个有趣的游戏。充满期待的周三来了,万万没想到,我们迎来的竟是八名枫叶小学的学生,还带着剪刀、电子称、纸杯、海绵垫、气球、米粒、卡片等工具。“Mr. Mike要干什么呀?”孩子们悄悄问我。我们带着好奇,在复习了八大行星的单词以后,哥哥姐姐们每个人代表一个星球,并向小朋友们用中英双语介绍了自己和所代表的星球,孩子们听得聚精会神,并向哥哥姐姐们投以崇拜的目光。

    之后,Mr. Mike让每个小朋友挑选了自己喜欢的“小老师”,哥哥姐姐们就带着宝贝们一起行动啦!米粒的多少决定星球的体积、气球的颜色代表星球的颜色,哥哥姐姐们在经过了Mr. Mike历时三周的培训后用最快的速度完成了自己的星球,太阳系的八大行星就这样惟妙惟肖的展现在眼前。

    随后,哥哥姐姐们又用英语给小朋友们介绍了许多星球的知识,地球是有生命、土星有光环、海王星最冷、土星上可以看见两个月亮……知道了这些知识以后,我们的小朋友们是不是可以回家给爸爸妈妈当老师了呢!

    宝贝们认识Mr. Mike已有两年之久,在这两年中,Mike给孩子们的不止是英文水平的提高,更是无限的快乐和期待,悉心的照顾和陪伴。很多家长都说,很幸运孩子能遇到Mr. Mike这么好的外教。其实,我也这么想,很庆幸遇到Mr. Mike,让我明白,学习和教授一门语言是一件如此快乐的事。

    Relationship TESOL

    -By Mike Tronson

     

    The effort to learn English as a second language is a major challenge. 

    Starting young and having quality lessons will produce success. It has 

    been my experience that students that achieve the greatest success are

     those who have a relationship with someone who has a higher level of

     English. My success in the classroom is largely due to the relationship I

     build with each of my students.

     

    In an effort to increase the success of my Kindergarten students I've 

    trained a small group of Grade Four students to demonstrate a simple

     English lesson. We met everyday for thirty minutes for three weeks. 

    Our first demonstration was very successful and will improve with practice. 

    The students enjoyed the effort and are eager to do more. We had so 

    much fun we forgot that we were actually learning to use English in 

    very real and practical way.

     

    Giving the older students the opportunity to showcase their English 

    skills by teaching the younger students new English skills is a really 

    good idea. This sort of interaction is always enjoyable and develops

     confidence for all involved.
