任雨桐:参加这次比赛是一次非常美妙的经历,我也很荣幸能在此次比赛中获得奖项。写作一直是我的爱好,我相信它是一个强大的沟通和自我表达的工具,通过写作,我们可以与他人、与世界建立更为深刻的链接。感谢我的家人和朋友对我的支持和鼓励,是他们激发了我对于写作的热情,并不断激励我去追求我的梦想。

感谢我的老师们,你们的热情、奉献精神和辛勤的工作深深鼓舞了我,未来我也将继续努力,在写作的道路上笔耕不辍,砥砺前行。

李明禄:首先感谢我的父母、家人,我的指导老师  Mr. Blackwood,他在我的英语学习上给予了莫大的帮助。同时我也要感谢学校、园区给我这次挑战自己的机会。我定当再接再厉,继续进步。最后,分享一句我最喜欢的诗句—“长风破浪会有时,直挂云帆济沧海”。

Q3
可以分享一下英语学习心得吗?
任雨桐:我总结了以下几点学习心得,希望可以帮到大家:1.经常练习:试着每天练习英语,即使只是几分钟。这将帮助提升你的英语技能和提高你的信心。

2.让自己沉浸在英语环境中:尽可能多地用英语包围自己。看英语电影和电视节目,听英语音乐和播客,阅读英语书籍和文章。这将帮助你适应语言,提高你的理解力。学习英语是一种有趣和有益的体验,尽可能让它变得愉快,比如看你最喜欢的英语电视节目,或者阅读你最喜欢的作者英文原版书籍。

3.找一个语言交流伙伴:找一个能说流利英语并愿意和你一起练习的人。比如通过加入语言学习社区,如英语角或语言交流小组,可以很好地认识其他学习者。你可以和他们一起练习口语和听力,他们可以帮助你快速掌握语法和增加词汇量。

总之,学习一门语言需要时间和精力。如果你没有立马看到进展,请不要气馁,请继续练习,一定要对自己有耐心。

 

李明禄:Success is born out of faith,an undying passion and a relentless drive.

成功来源于信念,永恒的激情和不懈的努力。
我在学习英语时会尝试和自己的生活经历联系起来,编一段小故事或者顺口溜帮助自己记忆单词、句子,在课堂上也会积极发言,沟通。当然,学习永远没有捷径,最重要的还是多多练习,才能温故而知新。

Q1

 

How long had you been preparing for this contest, and how did you prepare for it?

 

Ren Yutong: About one month, during which I read speeches from previous contests to build vocabulary, and tried, meanwhile, to compose two speeches. Mr. Blackwood, my English tutor, helped me a lot with my writing.

 

Li Minglu: It took me about one month to prepare for the contest. My tutor and I cooperated in it and communicated frequently, and practiced many times with textbook and on the internet. I had been fully prepared for the competition.

 

Q2

 

You have done a wonderful job. Do you have anything to share with us?

 

Ren Yutong: This is a splendid experience, and I am pleased to have won the prize in the contest. Writing has always been my hobby, and I believe writing is a powerful tool for communication and for self-expression. Through writing, we can establish a deep sympathy with others and the world.

 

I would like to say thank you to my family and friends for your support and encouragement. You inspired my passion for writing, and have always encouraged me to pursue my dreams.

 

I am also grateful to my teachers. Your passion, sacrifice and diligence have urged me forward, and you can be assured that I will forge ahead with perseverance on the road to writing.

 

Li Minglu: My gratitude shall go to my parents, my family, and my tutor. Mr. Blackwood helped me most in my English study. I am also obliged to BiUH and the pilot zone for the opportunity to challenge myself. I will work hard for more success. I would like to share with you my favorite verse: “Cherish lofty aspirations and wait for opportunities when you can sail far and rise high.”

 

Q3

 

Can we share your English-learning experience?

 

Ren Yutong: I have summed up my experience which I hope could be of some help to you:

 

  1. Practice every day, even if you have a couple of minutes only. Your English skills, as well as your confidence in English improve with practice.

 

  1. Create an English environment, and surround yourself with English materials like English movies, TV programs, music, podcast, books, and papers. They help you adapt to the language and boost your understanding. Learning English can be an interesting and beneficial experience. Watch your favorite English TV programs, or read your favorite authors, and you make English learning a pleasure.

 

  1. Find yourself a language partner who speaks good English and is willing to practice with you. There are language learning communities, English corners, or language exchange groups that you may join in and get to know other language learners. You practice speaking and listening with them, and they help you master grammar and vocabulary.

 

One more word, learning a language may take time and energy. If you do not seem to have made any progress, no worries. Just move on and be patient.

 

Li Minglu: Success is born out of faith, an undying passion and a relentless drive.

 

 

When I learn English, I try to connect with my experience in life, conjuring up a story or doggerel to memorize words and phrases, or grabbing any opportunities in class to communicate and speak up. There is no shortcut in learning. It is important to practice, practice and learn new knowledge.
