Why no one understands your English/為什麼沒有人懂得你的英語 (中英對照 精華文章)




你有可能記得整本字典,如果當你說英語的時候沒有人聽得懂,那所有的單字都是沒用的!如果你感到挫敗是因為你知道你使用正確的單字或句子結構,但是必須重覆三或四次在你懂之前,那你並不孤獨。



有很多人英文很好,但是他們是和非以英文為母語的老師學習,他們和以英文為母語的老師練習英文,及他們從不曾到過一個英文國家。他們的文法和字彙或許很好,但是他們很難讓人理解他們的意思。


問題出在於缺乏正確的說話練習。如果在你課堂的每一個人-包括你的老師-知道拼音及字彙的意思但是錯誤的發音就像是母音那會讓你完全難以理解。

這裡有幾些方式可以使你說話的時候就像一位以英文為母語的人不需要面對面說話一樣。有2種普遍的使用方法:看英文電影及聽英文廣播。然後,等你自己紀錄後及比較一下從錄音帶裡和電影中或是廣播裡聽到的。

當你在聽和錄音的時候是很普遍,而且幫助也很大,無須對照得到的反饋和從真的外籍教師得到幫助。但是這並不是你第一個問題?不是通往說本族語的人?

不那麼快。透過網路你有很多機會可以與以英語為母語的人練習。如果你有耳機和麥克風,網路你就可以聽影像聊天室。但是這些通常不是讓人很感興趣在於幫助你改善發音。

一個比較好的選擇就是其中一個線上英語學校。透過Englishtown.com,你可以規律的參加課程,線上會話課一天24小時與外籍教師對話。小班制並有組織的會話課主題。與相同程度的學生一起上課,討論主題,並得到專業教師的評語和指導。不久許多人將會對你的字彙能力和準確發音留下深刻的印象。






You might have memorized the entire English dictionary, but all that vocabulary is useless if no one understands you when you speak! If you're frustrated because you know you're using the correct word and sentence structure, but have to repeat a word three or four times before you're understood, you're not alone.


A lot of people know English well, but they learn from non-native English-speaking teachers, they practice with non-native speakers, and they have never been to an English-speaking country. Their grammar and vocabulary might be excellent, but they just can make themselves understood.


The problem is lack of correct speaking practice. If everyone in your class ?including the teacher ?knows the spelling and meaning of a word but is mispronouncing something as simple as a vowel sound it could make you all indecipherable.

There are a few ways you can compare your speech to a native English-speaker's without ever being face-to-face. Two commonly used methods are: watching movies in English and listening to English radio. Then, you finish by recording yourself and comparing what you hear on the tape to what you hear in the movies or on the radio.

While listening and recording your voice is popular and can be helpful, nothing compares to getting feedback and help from a real native speaker. But isn't this your problem in the first place? No access to native speakers?

Not so fast. Through the Internet you have plenty of opportunities to practice with native English speakers. If you have headphones and a microphone along with your computer and Internet connection, you could listen in on a video chat room. But these aren't usually filled with people interested in helping you improve your pronunciation.

A better option is one of the growing number of online English schools. Through Englishtown.com, you can join regular, live conversation classes with a native English-speaking teacher ?every hour, 24 hours a day. Classes are small and organized around a topic. Join in with other students at the same skill level, discuss the subject, and get feedback and guidance from the professional teacher. Soon youl be impressing people with your vocabulary and your accurate pronunciation!
