Social Media


Good morning!


今天来个不一样的。今天的练习是个话剧的独白。这样的比较口语化,有助于培养日常角楼的感觉。


这个独白是专门给演员当作“试镜”的材料,是个工作场景,这个人在给同事解释为什么取消了与她在社交媒体的好友关系。


Let me know what you think of this type of material.


Have fun!

John


p.s. 今天读的这个角色本来应该是女的。另外,the last part is supposed to be a bit funny and a bit sad.




朗读内容

SOCIAL MEDIA


INT: AN OFFICE


(Greta has been cornered by a coworker who is angry about being removed from Greta's social media profile.)


GRETA

Look, I'm sorry, Louisa, it wasn't personal or anything. I've just started unfriending people who aren't strictly relevant to my social life. Yikes, that sounded wrong and I can see the angry Tweet forming in your brain, but come on, hear me out.


You and I are friends…in a professional context. I like chatting with you here at the water cooler or at potlucks. I mean, I like being on your team when we do company bowling, because you're an awesome bowler.


(Louisa does not look appeased.)


Okay, I can see I'm doing a bad job at this. It's just…you don't really want to see my Facebook updates about going to nightclubs in the city and I'm tired of reading about marriage and pregnancies and nightly family Boggle sessions and life-changing trips to Europe.


Ugh, not, not like your trip to Europe. Barcelona looked absolutely magical. I meant it general. It's like…


(Deep sigh.)


Do you ever feel like everyone's living a better life than you? Or at least acting like it? From what I can tell, two-thirds of my friends have the most adventurous, fulfilling careers that anyone could ever have. And the rest of them have perfect children and ideal spouses. There's some overlap in there too, which is really unbearable. Or, I don't know, maybe they're all faking it. I guess I am too. I'm not posting about sitting under these fluorescent lights fifty hours a week. Or going home to a cat now that James left for good. Or dressing a body pillow in his old clothes and sleeping with it.


(Stares at the ground, Louisa completely forgotten.)


So anyway, that's why I unfriended you. I just didn't want to get too personal with my coworkers.

什么是清晨朗读会?

这里就是清晨朗读会。通过这个微信号,我每天早上7点左右会给你发可以模仿和朗读的材料,包括语音,也包括文本,希望我们能够每天一起练习。


如何使用此练习材料

较理想的状态

1)先听一遍我读的语音

2)再听一遍,这次跟着模仿(听不懂你模仿的没关系,跟不上也没关系,就尽量模仿你听到的音!)

3)朗读一遍原文

4)以上三个部分再重复2-3遍

5)(可选)发到朋友圈里,告诉朋友你今天练了英语!(对我来讲,这是最大的支持和帮助,提前感谢!)


起码要达到的状态

1)听一遍

2)跟着模仿一遍

3)朗读一遍



注意⚠️:听的时候最好不要看原文,听不懂100%没关系,你要是能听得懂100%那还学什么?

我的中文名字叫王渊源,英文名字叫John Gordon,是个美国人,在中国呆了十几年了,从事了14年的英文教育工作,接触过好几十万中国同学。让我一直很困惑的一件事情是很多中国朋友学了很长时间的英文,但并没有一个很好的学习效果。而我知道语言学习并不是那么神秘的事情,只要坚持一些简单的事情,就能够学会。我希望我能够帮助大家解决动力问题,方法问题以及材料问题。
