Thanks David. How can you help me? Share with me your experience helping people with their oral English. What I am looking for are the chances of speaking culturally with the English people -- to futher my level of verbal communication in English.
Thanks Richards. It might be more difficult to find a person you mentioned. You know, half of the students in the graduate class are from the third world. I am not in an undergraduate program where the majority are local, so not know any local people yet. Poor!
I guess so far nobody get an idea where there is an advanced level oral English class. And actually I am looking for it for my classmate who came from Nepal. We think the same that the ability to speak fluently,culturally and spontaneously is really hard to achieve.
Everyone in our management program required to make at least 8 presentations throughout the whole term. I did them successfully. However, presentations are not spontaneous speech, at least to me, before which I had enough time to prepare for. I have been very good at it, while still struggle to improvise a speech during a class, bearing a humble heart.
Speaking spontaneously, culturally and fluently is a basic skill for me to pursue through the rest of my study here in Canada, and I think many other Chinese have the same dream.
Let's cheer each other and offer help.
Flying together we fly farther, faster, easier and better!
To ZZSS: Your English seems excellent. David is a native Canadian and an English teacher. He might be able to help you by just chatting with you in various subjects. He also has other activities at home for his students such as watching an English movie and then discuss together. If you are interested, phone 775-9631.
