Here is my philosophy about how to live my life:

Life is often enriched by everyday experience. It is often sublimated through continuous accumulation. It is like a ladder and with every step I climb upward, I am reaching the top. "


以下是我所信奉的人生哲学:人生,往往因为我们每个人的阅历而变得丰富多彩。生活,往往在不断的积累中获得升华。生活就像一层层阶梯,每走一步,就能更近一步接近自己的人生目标。



My English was terrible before I studied at Maple Leaf International Schools-Chongqing.

After studying at Maple Leaf, I found myself more assured and at ease when communicating with others, reading books in English and comprehending course content in each class. After finishing the courses at Maple Leaf, I was admitted to my favorite university, Beijing Jiaotong University.


“几乎毫无英语基础的小白”,这就是在枫叶高中ESL课程带给我改变之前,我对自己的唯一印象。


如今,虽谈不上最好,但枫叶的英语特色教学,已然使我在用英语与他人交流时,获得了更多的自信,并能流畅地阅读英文原著,从而通过全英学术课程的学习,顺利毕业,收获了自己心仪的大学北京交通大学的录取通知书。



My life in Maple Leaf International Schools-Chongqing did not started as I expected: I encountered great difficulty in English learning, which was that I was grouped to the Foundation class of ESL program, which brought a huge change to me. Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing are the four most important aspects to improve my language communication ability, and the ESL program led my way to the English world.


刚进入枫叶高中时,在英语学习方面,我遇到了不少困难,因此,我首先进入枫叶高中ESL课程的基础班进行学习。改变就此开始。听说读写是任何一门语言的基础,想提高自己的英语交流能力,这四个方面的全面提升是必不可少的,而ESL课程的针对性教学则为我打开了走进英语的大门。



The dynamic teaching modes of the Foundation class allowed me to improve the comprehensive ability of English communication through many daily activities, such as the recitation of English classics, the English Art Festivals and so on. At the same time, I personally kept actively conducting daily communications with foreign teachers without worrying about language barriers, because only through these activities were I able to build up confidence and experience different cultures from different backgrounds.


枫叶高中ESL课程的基础班拥有充满活力的教学模式,我们在形式多样的各项活动中,提升英语交流的综合素养,如英语经典的朗诵、英语日、英语艺术节等。同时,我个人也坚持与外教积极地进行着日常的交流,虽然时有语言不通,交谈不畅的情况,但是我知道只有通过大胆的交流,才能快速地提高,建立自信。当然由于中外不同的文化背景,我也在交流中感受到了不同文明间的交流互鉴,提升了自己的文化理解力。



What’s more, English writing is also particularly important, because only the combination of reading and writing can truly improve our language ability and achieve the comprehensive understanding of the English language. In my eyes, the ESL courses serve as the best platforms to bring significant changes to students.

 

同时,英语写作也是尤为重要的,只有读写结合,才能让我们的语言能力真正地获得提升,实现能力素质上的综合发展。在我眼里,枫叶高中ESL课程中的写作课也是充满智慧与挑战的,可以为每个学生带来令人惊喜的改变。

 

Now, I am about to become a sophomore. As a former Maple Leaf student, I feel that the ESL program has helped me immensely. I am truly grateful to my Alma Mater. Many people hold that language learning requires both talent and positive guidance. But as far as I am concerned, positive guidance is far more important than talent in English learning. The English courses provided by Maple Leaf school helped me master English with great fun. I could never imagine that I can learn English without straggling.

 

如今的我,即将踏入大学二年级的学习了。作为曾经的枫叶学子,ESL课程对我的帮助尤为巨大,真心感恩母校,感恩枫叶。众所周知,语言的学习有的时候需要天赋,但是更需要充满快乐的激趣与充满智慧的引导,我很感谢枫叶的英语特色教学让并非天赋异禀的我打开了英语学习的奇境。



For me, the ESL program of Maple Leaf International School is a guide for me to lay a solid foundation of English language. It allows me to gain self-confidence, broaden my horizons, and enable me to embark on the pursuit of the goal of "feelings of home and country, vision of the world" as well as lighting a different kind of light to me.

 

向来回首求学之路,枫叶高中的ESL课程,就是为我打牢英语语言基础的引导者,让我收获自信,开阔视野,为我踏上对“家国情怀,世界眼光”这一目标的追寻之路,点亮了一盏别样的明灯。
