  【究竟學習怎樣的英文才是有用的!?】這是許多語文學習者的共同心聲。除了設定短期目標:報名英檢測驗,了解目前學習是否有需要加強文法概念或對於文化背景認知較薄弱?或單字的背誦過程需更系統化進行;中期進度更是需要藉由參加社團是出國旅遊實際體驗,修正自己口音或表達內容準確性和完整度;長期計畫是能從國際媒體中得知第一手消息,並在母語背景知識下,一併提升外語完整理解力和細節詮釋能力,讓學習語言從被動接受書面資料,變成主動搜尋各領域的場景和用字,再行深化認知和內化的艱辛但充滿驚喜與無比成就感的旅程。想必這樣各位同學在老師專欄都可以感受每一次的用心和多元主題帶來的幫助。認識語言全貌是很花功夫,但也更顯可貴。成功的路上從不擁擠,因為堅持的人不多。想必親愛讀者們有心想認識英文,才願意動動你的fingers,看看這個老師怎麼化你的英文能力為神奇。沒有任何捷徑,但持之以恆(Persistence),已經是學好語言的成功要件,你已經辦到了!所以不要只是Flip through翻翻而已,更要 Go through仔細看看內容,不要輕易說My English is through.(我的英文這科完蛋了!)哈哈,開開玩笑,也從簡單閱讀學到不少片語,AGAIN,你們都很棒喔! You are all on the right track, and please bear in mind that there's no shortcut learning English.
有一次BRIAN老師在早餐店(Breakfast Station)看到有讀者看著專欄哈哈大笑,當下其實職業病很重的我,很想請他大聲朗讀(Recite)喜歡的內容,希望藉由口說的記憶可以把喜歡的句子記起來,脫口而出就是好英文了!當時他桌上有帶著微脆口感的蛋餅(Omelet Roll)、濃郁料多快滿出來的廣東粥(Congee with Assorted Seafood and Veggies),還有一杯清甜的豆漿(Soy Bean Milk)在桌上,真是快活耶,也希望他知道這些如何英文要怎麼表達出來,謝謝我每個可愛的讀者,老師隨時會用可愛的微笑看著你讀英文喔!好像有點恐怖?好啦!娛樂大家之餘也要好好介紹英文的"NO MORE BABY ENGLISH"單元:不要老用小朋友的英文說話。在日常生活中,許多人都習慣用HAPPY來當做情緒固定用字,但在正式場合來有點掉漆,應該用Glad to meet you!遇到老闆想確認等等的會議內容,卻立刻說出" SCHEDULE"這個單字,讓長管以為你要問他私人行程,不僅很突兀也代表你對英文用字掌控與使用時機很不穩定,應該要說AGENDA,那才是讓主管一聽就懂的關鍵字!可別一廂情願又一頭熱去老闆說些不得體的BABY ENGLISH喔!所以來加強實力,邁向成熟說法,開口就加分的好機會盡在今天精彩專欄中!

everything I did though I had showed him nice gestures.
8. 不要只因為別人做錯一件事,就讓對方變成萬古罪人的機會。
(原句)Don't label a person just because he or she made a mistake. We all deserve a second chance.( label帶有刻板印象而對某人事物有的定論)
(修正)Don't stigmatize a person only by his or her one-time wrongdoing.
single out a person刻意孤立某人( stigma本為"污點"的涵意)
marginalized people被邊緣化的人

現在老師要示範是一般在做英文筆記時,最常見也最有用的方法,那就是把相關用語整理起來:運動類、飲食類、情緒表達、衣著鞋服,機場過境時等常見的場景用語。隨時可以活用,輕鬆愉快還能隨時補充新學習到的內容,或是分享筆記和讀書會的朋友定期討論自己的學習內容有哪裡要訂正和加強的,進步肯定十分神速也多了和朋友的話題,何樂而不為呢?
1. 延伸課程→Extensive Course
EX.: After exposing myself to(接觸) the basic level of French lessons, I found it really intriguing(有趣的) and profound(深奧的) in not only its culture but also the elegant languages. And my advisor suggested that I take some extensive courses, such as speaking training sessions, and cultural understanding classes available at the center. I cannot wait to learn and see more about this beautiful, unique culture.
2. 密集課程→Intensive Course
EX.: It's really common for Asian students to swarm into the cram schools for the big exams for College Entrance and they will receive intensive course for several subjects and be tested repeatedly, which will familiarize themselves with some key points the test places a great emphasis on. &臨時抱佛腳:cram for + N/ NP.
3. 速成課程班→Crash Course
EX.: When it comes to crash course, it seemed quite stressful(充滿壓力的) and unlikely to achieve. Very few people(極少數人) would take crash course out of no reason: Some diplomats are required to take Spanish or other foreign language courses for future negotiations or talk on social occasions in order to show our concern and manners as guests, others could feel urged to(感到急迫性的) learn how to cook for family before moving to a new place or living under the same roof with their " Hard-to-pleased" parents-in-law after the marriage , and still others would spend only two weeks in a row during the summer break to learn some skills which normally take nearly half a year. Signing up for crash courses sounds quite time-saving.(省時的)→fuel-efficient省能源的
4. 主要菜餚→Main Dish
EX.: As a well-educated diner, you are supposed to inquire if there's any particular dish the waiter might serve in season to cater to your need instead of giving him a hard time by being fussy during the whole meal.
5. 順其自然→Nature will take its own course.
EX.: When Susan failed to reach her son for the whole night, her worries grew to be anxiety and she had kept walking back and forth in the door and looking over the window to check whether his park was on the driveway it should have been. " Nature will take its own course," said I as one of her best friends. There sometimes are things you cannot rush, right? He's a grown-up, and you should stop getting so panicked as a helicopter parent. You are smothering him with love.(妳的愛會讓他窒息!)
<布萊恩老師人生座右銘時間Life Motto>: 
每當聽到盪氣迴腸(MIND-BLOWING)交響樂作品,偶然讀到牽動思緒的鄉愁詩,或在閒聊時光時深入人心的話語,讓聽者能有心靈舒緩和精神得到久違的支持感!這時後可不能只是用老掉牙的NO PAIN, NO GAIN打發對方。最近很多學生剛好需要參加英文朗讀及即席演講相關的比賽,這時後肯定有"平時"不努力,"上台"獨傷悲了。所以平時累積的筆記和口說實力就見真章,英文學習努力的程度就立刻現形無所遁形。好好利用BRIAN老師整理的實用生活感觸且發人深省的好句子,寫在專用的英文筆記本上,記在你的長期記憶資料庫,這樣隨時就可以脫口而出好英文,不求人好英文就從現在開始囉!
1.Look on the bright side because the shadow is behind when we face the sunlight.
朝著人生的光明面看吧!因為面對陽光時,陰影即被甩在背後。
2.The cost of growing up is going through pains which make us realize how fortunate we are to have so much in hand. Never take things for granted.
成長的代價充滿苦痛的,藉此也了解我們慶幸能擁有許多珍貴人事物!千萬不要當做是理所當然!
3.I am fully convinced that they came to us for some causes.
我深信這些(生命中)發生的事情冥冥之中都有安排!
4. Persistence is the only quality leading on to success.
要成功就一定具備堅持不懈這項特質。
5.There's no excuses for procrastination and the only thing you earned from stealing some minutes is a trademark of " Not Trustworthy"!
凡事延宕拖延是無法合理化的!以為賺了那幾分鐘的空閒,但事實上給自己倒是多了一個"大無賴"的名號!
6. If you happen to be stuck in the Writer's Block, I need to say something to you" Living in self-pity is not enough, and you need to work HARDER."
如果你剛好有寫作上的瓶頸,我有點想法跟你說:「自怨自艾是不夠的,你得埋頭苦幹一番才是。」
7. Go easy on others, and your life will be easier.
放過別人就是放過自己。(原意:對他人寬容點,生活會比較好過些!)
