Productive Rules to Study English (学习英语的有效规则)


1) Always say more than yes or no. Answer in complete sentences.

回答问题时不要仅仅停在简单的"是"或"不是"上。回答时尽量用完整的句子。

Example

"Do you understand?"

"Yes, I understand."

If you just say YES while answering a question, you end a conversation. Do not travel down a DEAD END STREET. Say more than yes or no. When studying English, if you are asked a question, it will help you to incorporate the entire question into the answer.

在回答问题的时候,如果你仅仅停留在“是”上,对话往往到此为止。不要走死胡同。除了说“是”或“不是”以外,再多说点。你会发现,在学习英语的时候,如果把整个问句嵌入回答中将会非常有帮助。

Example

Can you operate a PC?

Yes, I can operate a PC. Now you are open to say more about your computer skills.

现在你就可以敞开谈你的电脑技巧了。

Example

Can you operate this computer system?

Yes, I can operate many computer systems, such as Power Point, CAD, Word Perfect and various Internet programs.

2) Feel free to ask polite questions. If you don't understand what someone said, or what they want, use the following questions:

不要怯于礼貌地提问。如果你不明白某人说的话,或者不明白他们的意图,就可以问下面的问题:

I don't understand, please repeat.

Say again?

What?

Pardon?

Say what?

Huh?

What's that?

Come again?

Sorry?

I didn't hear you, sorry?

3) Compliment your friends and co-workers.

赞扬你的朋友和同事。

Example

Good job, well done. You wrote a great report.

Thanks a bunch for your compliment.

My pleasure.

Other compliments: Super duper, keep it up, A#1, Right On, two thumbs up, well done.

4) Bring a notebook to work or to class or on walks. Try to write down the English names of the places you go and the things you see. Put tags on desks, lamps, refrigerators etc...

在工作时或去教室或散步的时候挟带一部笔记本电脑。试着写下你要去的地方和你看到的事物的名字。把标签贴在桌上、灯上、和冰箱上。

5) Try teaching Chinese friend some English. If you are a student, it is ok to forget the lesson, but the Teacher who presents the lesson will never forget. So turn the learners into teachers. Try this a few times a week, or better yet, 20 minutes a everyday. You can teach each other. (This is everyday English after all)

试着给中国朋友教英语。如果你是一个学生,忘记以前学过的课程没有关系,但是讲课的老师却不会轻易忘记讲过的课。因此现在我们把学生和老师的角色转换一下。每周都试着这样做几次,或者更好的做法是每天用20分钟来做这样的练习。你们可以互相教对方。(毕竟这是每日英语呀)

6) Smile. Learning English is fun, so have a good time. English now, but fun all the time.

现在对自己笑一笑。学习英语是一件很有趣的事,因此尽情享受学英语的过程。现在学英语,轻松伴永远。

Molly: I want to share a few new study tips I picked up from my teacher. Are you interested?

Gordon: Of course, you bet. You are always a great teacher, so teach me.

Molly: Well, you already know rule one, always say more than yes or no. Did you know it could be fun and educational to put English tags on things?

Gordon: No, I had never thought of that before. Two thumbs up on that cool idea.

Molly: Come again, what was that?

Gordon: I said two thumbs up. It means A #1, or super!

Molly: Cool, now you are being the teacher. What other tips do you have for me?

Gordon: You should always bring a notebook with you, so you can write down new words, like Two Thumbs Up.
