Join the English Seeds Class 2015-05-15 15:07:39
This year, Tainan City Government promotes English to become the second official language. The Mayor announced English will be the second official language in Tainan city in ten years. As a result, the office about the second official language is operated and launches a lot of related short, medium and long run project. To train public service learning English, the government starts “English Seeds Class.”

Provide opportunity to let subordinate agencies staffs learn English and foster subordinate agencies staffs English skills. Therefore, these English seeds staffs go back to their office to create an English learning environment. Besides, it can enhance the English ability of colleagues.

Because of this project, I was assigned to join the English seeds class which is called another name “Coaching English.” Besides, thank to this project, I have a chance to improve my English ability. Therefore, I go to civil service development institute every Monday.

1.Before class
Before each class, we need to do the checklist of coaching English. Through answering these checklists, each staff can know self English ability, the frequency use of English in workplace, etc.

Take the checklist of coaching English week 2 for example; it’s about how to build up an enjoyable English learning place. The question is like “To create a more positive learning environment, I can _______.” By answering this question, it can stimulate classmates thinking about how we can do to invite our co-workers use English in our daily life. Maybe share an English article or book, decorate our office with English posters or organize a study group with colleague on line.

There are a lot of methods can build up an English learning environment. Compare with these methods, we can find more useful ways to fit ourselves office. In my workplace, colleagues are busy in office. Consequently, I think organizing a study group on line to share English articles is best way for us. We can discuss English anytime and anywhere by Internet.

2.During class
The first class, the teacher told us it’s different between coaching English and classroom English. Coaching English is based on students’ preferences and perspectives. There are interactions between the teacher and students. The teacher will adjust different methods to each student. On the other side, there is no interaction in classroom English. As a result, we have coaching English class not classroom English. The teacher needs the students’ feedback during the class. Let learn and teach English with effective methods.

In classroom, the classmates come from different Bureaus. We make some teams. It’s easy to discuss the different methods about how to create the English environment. Though lots of us don’t deal with English business in workplace, we still think hard. Even usually we use Taiwanese to talk with people, we still work hard. Use this idea to associate with another opinion. So, we can exchange many ideas. Maybe this idea is not work in one’s workplace, but it may be great idea for another’s workplace. In piles of ideas and opinions, each of team members can find the better way to build up English environment for their workplace.

During the class, we not only discuss our opinions, but also have some English learning activities. Through these activities, we can learn English in interesting way to enhance the planning and leadership skills which help us be an English seed. It’s fun and deep impressed.

3.After class
Based on this English seeds class, I understand the role and function of the English seeds. After the class, leading English learning to enhance the English communication skills of colleagues is our jobs. Though it may be difficult, we should assist the office to create English learning environment and promote related activities.

Furthermore, English seeds class in order to meet everyone’s needs, the teacher told to each classmate one by one, and gave us some suggestions. These suggestions are tailored to different classmates. Since I am work in Tourism Bureau, responsible for some management of hotels. I was suggested to concern about foreign investment in hotels. Because of Tainan City will be international and competitive. If I am ready for that, then I can be the receptionist to help them in the future.

As a result, when I come back to office, I will make related study group. Produce and acquire English in a more natural way, let every co-worker learn English easily and fun every day. Improve co-workers English communication skills and make ourselves more able to talk with others. Therefore, when the foreigners come to Tainan, we can help them find hotels or invest hotels.

To sum up, I’m glad to join the English Seeds Class. Provide me the chance to learn English and help office to build up English learning environment. I will use ideas and methods which learned from class. So, we can step by step achieve the goal “English is the second official language.”
