Practicing Basic Oral English
Q hi john:首先谢谢你的回答。现在由于工作非常忙,所以晚上学习的时间很少很少,但我上班的来回车程有2小时,我是否利用这两个小时听些英语,来提高我的听力呢?怎么样的文章或者说什么比较适合我听?谢谢!
A Hi, Milly,
If the journey to and from work takes that long, it is a good idea to make good use of that time.
I think it will be good to start with very simple English. If you want to start at the very basic, see if you can find any tapes that also have a book with pictures to go with the audio but without any Chinese. Then your mind can associate the audio with the pictures. The very basic will be very simple nouns, e.g. cat, dog, cow, etc. This is how you can build up your word association mechanism so that as soon as you see a picture, you don't have to think in Chinese before you can say the English word for it. If you cannot find any, let me know and I will see about getting a list of simple words recorded and making it available for you to download, and then you can draw the pictures yourself in a notebook.

Improving Oral Skills
Q 我是在外贸公司工作,但我的英语不好。一般的英文还能看得懂一点,但是这次有美国客户来跟我对话之后我才明白英语口语真的太差太差,能否告诉我如何学习英语和提高我的口语水平!谢谢!
A Hi, Milly,
I can understand your problem. It is common to many people. Often times you have been learning how to read and write but have not had much practice in conversations. Here are what I see as the main difficulties:

1. The vocabulary of conversational English is slightly different from the written one. People use a lot of slang.
2. The speed that people speak at is faster than someone learning English can keep up, and people often don't annunciate: they slur words together a lot.
3. Someone learning English as a second language usually needs to translate a sentence in order to understand (English to Chinese), and when responding, needs to translate a thought into the second language before saying it (Chinese to English).
4. When speaking, you want to say something perfectly.

The combination of the above makes it very hard to carry on a "normal" conversation.

Here is my advice:
1. If you want to improve, you must be willing to spend time in practicing it.
2. You need to first build a foundation, and this foundation is to be able to understand simple children's English without needing to translate.
3. The next step will be to expand your vocabulary to the adult level up to a point that you don't need to translate.

The final goal of the above is that you will think in English.

Do you think it is possible? I can tell you that it is! If you are living in an environment where everybody speaks English, it will take 6 months. If you don't have that environment, it will take longer, but it is still possible.

So my first question for you is: how much time are you willing to spend everyday in improving your English?

Improve Oral and Listening Skills
Q Dear John,
I wonder if you can tell me how to improve oral English and listening English, thank you very much.
Best regards,
A Hi,Alice,
I think one of the best ways is to mimic. We have a serial story on line now. So you can listen to it and read along with the story-teller. Do it three times a week. If you feel confident, you can close your eyes and just listen and see if you understand. Only open your eyes if you don't. Try it and let me know how it goes.
- John
