|There is no denying that English is the global popular language, based on the concept of “ The World Is Flat”. In order to learn more new knowledge from the world, we think of ourselves as global citizens by using English as a bridge while connecting ourselves with the world. Furthermore, being a 21century global citizen , English is the necessary tool for well communication into international society .
Even in the public sectors , we , civil servants , should follow the rules of “the human resource development of the public sectors” to learn, train, educate and develop. We put the stress on the importance of development, which focus on cultivating and improving the individual potential. English-learning is a course required an individual to cultivate and improve his skills for the possible development.
Tainan originally is well-known as a traditional and cultural city. Recently , the city government not only makes efforts to maintain the outlook of the culture and tradition but transforms the city scene into an international metropolis as well . Therefore, the local government promotes English as its secondary official language . In doing so , it wants to extend its influence to and makes friends with the world. It never too emphasized on the need of English in this case.
Even though I realize the importance of the English and I have been learning English for quite long , I still can’t speak English very fluently . One main cause is I lack daily practice for English learning ; the other main cause is I can’t pronounce English accurately. The former I can make it up by studying English hard . However, when it comes to the pronunciation, we need an instructor to help us find the right articulation and correct our drawbacks. We are not English native speakers , but we can mimic the native accents by the instructions from the instructors.
Basically , English pronunciation is divided into 2 parts: vowels and consonants. While pronouncing the vowels, it needs highly concentrations on the oral vibration . We should put the oral vibrations on the right vocal organs. Such concentration is easy to be ignored in daily life and difficult to learn . The key to overcoming the difficulties is to build a power of “routine”. This training not only helps me improve my English pronunciation , but strengthens my mindset of concentration on my job. I use the articulation skills that instructor Ms Lin Fang- Li taught us to apply to my communication with the public . To my surprise, my communication becomes organized and easy- understanding. This is an extra benefit I gain from the seminar.
After the training of Civil Service Development institute, Tainan City Government ,I got the key to pronouncing English, I should motivate myself to learn English. I always want to talk as what a native does. Since when he was born, he has been listening to English all the time. And that is exactly what I should do. Start by listening to simple stories, fairy tales, and stuffs for children, they are entertaining and quite simple. Watch my movies in English (with subtitles in English). In the beginning is tough but after a few months it gets better. Listen to good English (from natives either a British or an Americans) everyday is the most important thing, It helps me learn new phrases , vocabularies and grammar . It gets your ears used to the English sounds and melodies. It boosts my love for English. After a few months, start listening to podcasts, radio programs and if possible set my TV channel in English . When I like an expression learn it by heart.
I improve my pronunciation by going to both the BBC and VOA learning site and learn the phonetic alphabet. I follow the broadcast and read the transcription aloud every day at least for 10 minutes, listen to the original speaker, line by line, and try to imitate exactly the same sound he produces. Do it again until the sound of my English is similar to the speaker's one.
Now , I use the skills I learned from the training class to improve my English Pronunciation and my concentration. Consequently, I make a progress in both my English speaking ability and my job . I know learning English needs persistence, enthusiasm , English friendly environment and under a perfect plan.
After I received the instruction from the training class, I would like to follow the instruction to develop my English learning framework and if I can arrive at some achievements , I would like to share with my colleagues and invite them to learn English with me . In the future ,I hope I can raise task efficiency in public sectors and enrich the knowledge of English in my daily life.
