强生古北花园

 

今天两个小朋友一起和外教上课,家长希望以口语为主。姐姐即将进入古北对口的某公办小学一年级,弟弟则已经进入古北某国际学校小班。两个小朋友的英语基础都差不多,口语方面除了日常简单的句子和单词,表达也是不够熟练,当然这除了语言环境外,也和小朋友平时的积累有关。

美国外教K上个月刚刚签约浦东某国际幼儿园,下周开学。外教K虽然年逾不惑,但是和小朋友在一起她依然充满活力,原来外教K在美国就是老师,并且已经有超过15年的幼儿外教经验。她表示姐弟俩一块儿学习在开始的阶段应该没问题,而且混龄学习还有可能促进二人的学习兴趣和动力,以后可以根据进度来酌情安排,也可以各45分钟。

今天第一堂课,外教K竟然带来了一大包的资料,有小玩具,有卡片,还有小故事。外教K表示第一堂课将是轻松愉快的,她将迅速把握两个小朋友的英文基础,以制定后面的课程计划。

The know only basic things. The younger brother is too young, and the sister seems better because of the age.
I will start giving homework next week which was requested by the mom.

 

小朋友T即将参加上海一所知名双语学校国际班面试,此前已经面过一次,但是与录取失之交臂,令人欣慰的是老师认为小朋友很有潜力,于是告知不久后有第二次面试机会。小朋友一直上的是公办幼儿园,因此目前面临的问题是英语语感不够,词汇不够,句子不够丰富,因此有经验的外教做针对性的面试强化训练则很有必要。

美国外教J年逾知命,现任小学在职外教,非常了解小学一年级录取要求,所教学生进入国际学校不计其数,而且外教J很有方法,总是能想出办法和小朋友们打成一片,所以他教的学生都很喜欢和外教互动。

“How are you?”
- Fine. Thank you.

“How old are you?”
- T****.

“What’s your name?”
- Six.

看样子小朋友是把问年龄和问名字两个问题搞混了。不过外教表示没关系,后面有很多问题他还会不断重复。第一堂课走起!

His attention span was non-existent in my opinion. I think some of it may have been because he probably wasn’t used to the class yet. Based on the experience I had tutoring other young children before I expected him to take the lesson much more seriously and be ready to learn.

His English level was lower than I expected! This made it challenging to ask him a question and have him give the correct answer. One of the issues I noticed was that his answer would not match the question. For example, Q. “What is your name?” A. “I am six.” Sometimes he would reply only in Chinese.

I do think it would be helpful if one of his parents could be available for the first 2 or 3 lessons to help translate some words, or to tell him what to do: “Answer teacher’s question!” “Stop playing with the desk!” and so on.

I will try to find some more materials for his age and English levels that go over things like introductions and answering simple questions about oneself and family. I think if he sees pictures and words together it may help him understand what he is saying and why he is saying it.
