六月有奖征文:A term of communication, but memories for lifetime

作者:王宁 | 来源:北方民族大学

 It is said that college life is a wonderful experience and the most impressive memories in our lifetime. During the period of university, every footprint of we studyingplaying and living will leave us the most impressive memories, of course, I am no exception. Our four-year college is divided into eight terms. I can experience different things and in each semester. Therefore, my memories are diverse from each other. For example, I would keep somethings in my mind, the things that some activities of my classathletic meeting in academyand chorus within the college-wide and so on. These things will still always occur to me.

  Now I am a junior student, I do have somethings what worthy to be remembered, but an instance in particular leave a deep depression on me, it will keep in my memory forever. That is my foreign teacher, Joe.

  To our surprise, this term we would have a class named Specialty English, even more amazing was that we would taught by a foreign teacher. At the first class, he who was long-expected showed at class. It was the first time that I contacted with foreign teacher. It made me full of curiosity and feeling of freshness. After his self-introduction, I got his name is Joe. He was not familiar with in Ningxia China because for first time he came here. So he especially hoped to adapt to new environment as soon as possible by teaching us in this term. Looking like a little shya little low voicenot very natural expressions and sometimes bowed his head to think some words, these were his behaviors when he first met us. To tell the truth, my impression of him was stablesureness simple and unadorned, he looked like a big boy, because I didn`t know if he has married, that was a personal question.

  In the next weeks, we got gradually familiar with each other, Joe often played and interacted with us in regard to our course. Probably, it would be the main difference between our other native courses. He often randomly called up someone to answer an easy question, so we had to follow his schedule and progress of teaching-plan.

  I have a personal habit to sit in the last row rather than front row seats, so I have a chance to observe the most  behaviors of our classmates and our teacher. I found that he is really a person with good manners, because his behaviors are quite gentle. He would out of the palm of his hand to call up someone every time, then he would listen to students seriously. Whether the question was correct or wrong, he just gave a smile and nodded his hand lightly, and next he told the right answer to that student if he gave a wrong answer. Furthermore I know that he has s very good temper and he respects everyone of his students. While we were playing mobile phone or speaking with deskmates even or sleeping in the class, he would come up to us and try to gently persuade us to keep discipline or put his hand highly to do a action what meansstopping. He is indeed a good-tempered man.

  A most impression thing between Joe and me is that he got angry with me. I remembered, a Wednesday morning I was something tired, I wanted to have a rest in the last row, so I had not heard Joe calling me. I stood up in nervous and anxious, couldn`t answer his question at all. You can think how embarrassed I was. At the same time, I saw a strange facial expression what had not appeared of him. At that moment, I felt something would happened immediately, my face turned red. Joe backed to the computer, he was beginning to strike some words on the screen. He wrote that: I just want you everyone to take part in it and enjoy our class, I want to make progress with you everyone. It is a change for you to show yourselves by answering questions and I can offer a platform to exercise yourselves. I will give up this way if you everyone don`t want to improve your English level and don`t be responsible for you own. He gazed at the screen with his serious expression while I bowed my head with guilty. I recognized my mistake and made an apology to Joe without hesitation. That was the first time that he got angry, just the only once I meet. It was a lucky or unlucky thing? As a Chinese proverb goes that“First humiliation then be brave. After this thing, I took listening Joe`s class carefully and cooperated with him actively in our class. I can enjoy every Specialty English class in reality.

  In addition, he is a responsible man, a dedicated man and a hard-working man. He organized a QQ group, we were all invented into this QQ group. His aim was to provide another class for us to study after-class and he could answer any questions which we raise. He also welcomed someone would communicate with him, on the one hand, it was able to improve our oral English proficiency; on the other hand, he was extremely willing to make friends with us by knowing and understanding each other.

  In my opinion, it is the inevitable trend of time that foreign teachers come to China. Firstly, with the worldwide economy globalization, the chances of communication are increasing around the world. As we all know, our world is becoming smaller and smaller, it also called aglobal village, so it`s not an unusual thing that foreign teachers go out for cultural exchanging. Secondly, foreign teachers have special advantages in the respect of English teaching. They have advantages in teaching the idiomatic English, this is what we need rightly. Third, foreign teachers not only have the mission to improve Chinese students` English, but also they can communicate with different cultures and spread them conveniently. They are the leaders who can show different culture, enrich us knowledge and wide us experience.

  As every coin has two sides, our teacher will not behave perfectly either in knowledge teaching or culture spreading. As a result, he pays more attention to knowledge teaching. He takes efforts to research various teaching methods, we are always attracted by his teaching passion. The proverb goes that Everything comes to him who waits. Our English level have improved a lot, and we love to have his class little by little.

  This is my foreign teacher, Joe. It is known to all that The happy moment doesn`t last long , we always cherish something we love when we have lost it. This is the same as the emotion between Joe and me. We will say goodbye to each other, but I still believe that I will treasure our all memories. Joe, a big boy, a lifetime teacher and friend,thanks!
