要對自己有信心 You Have to be Confident


因為教英文的關係遇到蠻多對自己英文程度沒有信心的人,不好意思開口說英文也不好意思寫英文,怕犯錯被笑。你知道嗎,其實以英文為母語的人自己也會犯錯。像魯賓遜漂流在荒島時,寫下的記錄就犯蠻多錯的。例如 happy的比較級是 happier,但魯賓遜寫成 more happy,又例如 catch 的過去式是 caught,但是他寫成catch'd。英國人自己寫英文都會犯錯,人家都不怕被笑,你是在怕什麼!

Due to my profession I have encountered quite some English learners who are so lack of self-confidence when they speak or write in English. They are afraid of being laughed at when they make mistakes. But you know what? Even English people make mistakes when they use their own language. Take Robinson Crusoe for example. The comparative form of happy is happier, but he wrote more happy. The past tense of catch is caught, but he wrote catch'd. See, English people are not afraid of being laughed at. What are you afraid of?
 


用英文的時候要像謝小慶這麼有自信,即使睡姿醜得不得了,還是覺得自己又帥又可愛。

Look at Upon Hsieh. The way he is asleep is totally absurd and ugly, but he doesn't look at himself that way. Not at all. He believes in himself that he is the most handsome and adorable cat in the world. You have to be as confident as Upon Hsieh when you use English.
