In modern society， it has been a trend that diverse English examinations put tremendous emphasis on the ability of reading。 When facing the subject that， as undergraduates， how we could improve our reading ability constantly， different people hold different opinions。
Good morning. I am glad to be here for this interview.
As an undergraduate， my proposals related to the means to promote the reading ability are based on the following aspects。 To begin with， reading ability， a basic grounding of English learning ability， would be well improved by unceasingly reading various articles， such as fictions， magazines and newspapers。 Additionally， as we all know， writing reading notes is a wise method， which would contribute to cultivating a positive reading habit。 Along with the analyses of different kinds of articles， not only can we accumulate a great deal of knowledge， but also we are able to enhance our reading ability。 Last but not least， we ought to make good use of the electronic products， such as iPad and Kindle， which will either improve our study efficiency or arouse our interest in reading。
I’m 姓名 and I have been working as a 职业 at 公司 for ... years since my graduation from大学 University. During my undergraduate years, I developed an interest in 学科. Then I took several selective courses on 学科 and read a lot of literature in this 田野先生. However, it is one thing to study 学科 theory in university, but another to put theory into practice. That’s why I decide to be a 事业职位 to enrich both my 学科 knowledge and practical experiences.
All in all， on the basis of the causes mentioned above， the significance of reading can never be overemphasized。 Consequently， my sincere hope is that all the college students could continue to improve our abilities in every respect。 Only in this way can we get more achievements and reach our ultimate goals。
Good morning. I am glad to be here for this interview.
In modern society， it has been a phenomenon that there are more and more opportunities to use English， not only in different exams but also in our daily life。 Among the abilities of using English， speaking ability must be a practical one that every educated person should possess。 And the fluency in English expression must be a result of a set of really tough work。
My name is 名字, 年龄. I come from 城市, the capital of 省份Province. I am going to graduate from the 院系 department of 大学名称University in July, 二零一五. In the past two years I have been preparing for the postgraduate examination. Now all my hard work has got a result since I have a chance to be here. So I just feel a little bit nervous,because this is my first time to have such an interview.
As an undergraduate， my proposal related to the means to promote the speaking ability is based on the following aspects。 Speaking ability， as far as I am concerned， acquires unceasing exercises of both listening and speaking。 As a consequence， we ought to make good use of the materials around us， such as the Internet， which will either improve our study efficiency or arouse our interest in speaking。 The application， Ted， is a perfect example。 It provides us with a great number of speeches delivered by diverse famous people from all kind of fields。 Through constantly listening to these speeches and reading loudly and clearly， our speaking ability must be improved continuously。
With economic globalization, English, as the communicational tool of the world's common language, is more important than before. In China, the growing trend of learning English makes students learn English much earlier. In 2001, the Ministry of Education issued the "English standard". According to it, for the English beginners, listening ability is one of the five essential abilities (listening, speaking reading, writing and translating) and an important part of English practical ability and also a standard to measure the quality of English teaching.
In the past three and a half years, I have learnt some basic knowledge of 所学职业. For example, from the courses of 课程名称 and 课程名称, I got to know 职业理论. When I learnt more about this 田野先生, I became more interested in it. Apart from the textbooks, I borrowed many relevant ones from our library to read, such as你读过的连带的正经八百课书的称谓、你读过的正规化相关的书籍名称and 你读过的正规有关的书本名称.
To sum up， on the basis of the cause mentioned above， the significance of speaking can never be overemphasized。 Thus， my sincere hope is that all the college students could continue to improve their abilities in every respect。 Only in this way can we get more achievements and reach our ultimate goals。
Students are the most receptive at their young age, and one’s development of young stage will influence the development of his whole life. Thus, the listening ability of English beginners proves particularly important. Till now, a lot of scholars have studied how to improve the English ability of the English beginners. Lin Xinshi said that cultivation of good learning habits is of much essence to English beginners(林新事，2003卡塔尔(英语：State of Qatar). He tried to propose some novel ideas and thoughts about cultivating good learning habits of English language novices. He stated that the cultivation of good learning habits goes through three stages: 1卡塔尔(英语：State of Qatar) The stage of good habits selecting, 2卡塔尔(英语：State of Qatar) the stage of consolidation and reinforcement, 3卡塔尔(英语：State of Qatar) the stage of good habit using and transferring. A thesis said:“If I were an English beginner, I would read more stories and listen more tapes. If I were an English beginner of middle school , I would read and recite beautiful texts accurately and fluently. I should read more English after class, and retell the stories to my classmates in simple English. And also, I will learn some basic grammar knowledge to strengthen my self-consciousness to study.”（中学课程辅导初风华正茂版,2001）.Liu Xueyun analyzed the common writing errors of English Beginners (刘学云,1982卡塔尔(英语：State of Qatar).
I really enjoyed my journey when reading and absorbing the information from these fascinating works. In addition to reading books, I also like browsing through some journals in 专门的学业领域 on a daily basis so that I can keep an eye on the latest news and findings in my area. My passion in专门的职业名称 is the reason why I would like to pursue my further study in this 田野先生. Owing to my diligence and persistence, I could concentrate on my study and I believe that I could eventually succeed.
Also a lot of scholars have studied how to improve the English learners` listening ability. In the early of the 1970s, many applied linguists proposed listening strategy theories, the famous ones are O’Malley’s and Chaumont’s. They classified the learning strategies used by the learners in the listening process into: metacognitive strategy, cognitive strategy, social and emotional strategies (cited from宝建东， 2007). Vandergrift believes that metacognitive strategy is effective to improve the English beginners` listening ability (Vandergrift L, 1993). Professor Mendelsohn thinks teachers should help learners use other means to obtain information(cited from张艳丰，2008). In addition to the use of video, the multi-media teaching also can be put into use (cited from张艳丰, 2008). In the English teaching of China, people do not pay much attention to the listening ability improvement. Currently, the research of it is just on the stage of description. The intervention stage is still being explored. As a result, no systematic or sophisticated teaching can be put into practice. In the 1990s, some scholars, such as Jiang Zukang did some research on the relationship between listening strategies and listening ability, and his result confirmed the validity of listening strategies (蒋祖康, 1994). But just a few of them studied how to improve the English beginners` listening ability. In the area of listening teaching of primary school , Xu Xiuzhen made a research on teaching procedures, technical processing , how to interest students, how to deal with the relation between listening teaching and text teaching ,and the relation between listening training and thinking(徐袖珍，2002). She believes that teaching should follow four steps: 1, pre-listening; 2, listening; 3Upon listening screening; 4, repeated listening. At the same time, she raised the methods against the above specific issues, such as diversifying of teaching methods, enhancing the interest of students, etc. (徐袖珍,2002). Meng Hongtao analyzed the five factors which influenced the listening ability: 1. vocabulary, 2. grammar, 3. voice, 4. Speed, 5.cultural background, and then raised some corresponding methods according to the factors. (孟红桃，2004). Xiang Yi believes that English beginners, especially those in primary school children, should focus on listening and speaking ability very much (项奕，2010). Although many scholars have done a lot of research on English beginners and how to improve their listening ability, they mostly just give suggestions in theory and most of the suggestions are very abstract.
This paper believes what the previous scholars have researched reflects the importance of improving listening ability of English beginners. As we all know, listening ability is one of the five essential abilities (listening, speaking, reading, writing and translating) and an important part of English practical ability and also a standard to measure the quality of English teaching. If a student can not listen well, his or her speaking, reading and other abilities may be affected.
Good morning, dear professors.
In the following, this paper makes a specific research on how to improve listening ability of the English beginners on the bases of personal and school factors .According to these factors, some suggests are offered, hoping to serve the English beginners.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to have this interview.
I. Listening Status of Chinese English Beginners
I am 姓名，graduating from the Department of 专门的学问 at 大学 University. Born into a middle-class family in 城市，省份，I have been influenced by my father’s keen interest in 学科. He teaches 学科 in a University and always tells me a lot about 学科内容.
In China the listening condition of English beginners is not ideal. Generally speaking, the English beginners are lack of interest and their teaching strategy is single. In addition, their knowledge on phonetic and grammar and vocabulary is poor and weak. Besides these, they have less cultural background knowledge, either.
Therefore, when I was a little kid, I enjoyed reading stories about the 学科，from...to...
1.1 Being Lack of Interest in Listening
That’s why I decided to take 学科 as my major in university.
"Interest is the best teacher". In practical teaching, in some regions, especially in the poor regions, the English beginners are lack of interests due to being lack of the modern teaching equipments in schools, such as multi-media room, DVD, MP3, etc. Even in some schools, the modern equipments are placed just for decoration，not for practical use. Other reasons resulting in low learning interest of the beginners are the teachers` boring teaching methods, the vapidity of the teaching materials and so on.
I am open-minded, quick in thought and very fond of 学科. In my spare time, I have broad interests like many other students. I like reading books, especially those about 学科.I also like English very much, and have pass CET-6 this last year, but I do think there’s still a long way to go, so I won’t give up my English study, and I’ll keep improving my oral and listening ability. Thank you very much for your time and attention.
1.2 Weak Knowledge on Phonetic Characteristics and Rules.
Sound recognition involves the identification of voice, intonation, sound quality and so on. As is known to all, there are only 26 alphabets, but the number of their pronunciations is nearly twice as much as them. For most students, when they meet these letters in words or phrases, they can not identify which pronunciation they should articulate. What’s more, the same letter may correspond to different pronunciations. And also, different letters can correspond to the same pronunciation. In addition to the above, in different context, speakers` voice and intonation are different, so the students can not learn the phonetic characteristics and rules well.
1.3 Being Weak in Vocabulary and Grammar
It is my great pleasure to be here. My name is __姓名__, graduated from __专业__ Department of __本科院校__ University. During my four-year study in the university as an under-graduate student, I have built up a solid foundation of professional knowledge, as well as a rich experience of social activities.
The time when students are really involved in English learning is in the secondary school. And in most primary schools, the time of having English class is just one or two hours and the teacher seldom emphasize the importance of vocabulary and grammar. As a result, the students in primary school just know a few words and vocabularies and they can not be able to write them, even they know a little about their pronunciation. So the students feel it difficult to comprehend the native speakers.
I am a determined person, always willing to achieve higher goals. Whats more, I am good at analysis, with a strong sense of cooperation. All of these led me to the success of passing the first round of the entrance examination to the Masters degree.
1.4 Being Lack of Knowledge aboutCultural Background.
Personally, I am very humorous and easy-going, enjoying a good relationship among my classmates. In my spare time, I like to read books regarding how to be myself and how to deal with problems. Music and movies are my favorite entertainments. As for my sport interest, I could not deny my greatest interest is football. Playing this game brings me a lot of glory, happiness and passion.
Background is related to the listening material, the character in the material , the culture, the lifestyle, and the understanding of concept and so on. Its main role is to provide the listener judgments, reasoning, the basis of speculation, etc. The weak knowledge about cultural background is caused by the following reasons:(1) being lack of introduction of background timely in material, (2)being lack of background introduction in teacher's teaching process (3)students` neglecting of cultural background knowledge in their preparation process.
All in all, __指标学院__ University, with a highly qualified faculty and strong academic environment is the university I have long admired. I believe that I am a very qualified applicant for admission into your Master of __指标专门的工作__ and can contribute to the enrichment or diversity of your university.
1.5 The SingleTeaching Strategy.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION!
Most teachers are using the "three steps” in their English lesson. The first step is to listen to the recoding, without using any back information. The second step is to ask students to do multiple –choice. The third step is to check the answers. The teaching strategy is very single. But most students are active and curious; they can not stand the boring single teaching strategy and demand more various teaching methods. Their teaching strategy is hard to meet whose demands and easy to bore them, but the lifelong learning view is based on the students ’interest of English. If the student’s interest can not be satisfied, they will gradually lose the interest.
II. Factors Influencing the Listening Ability of English Beginners
Good morning. I am very glad to be here for this interview.
Factors influencing the listening ability of English beginners mainly include personal factors and school factors. It is necessary to analyze them if the listening ability of English beginners must be improved.
First let me introduce myself. My name is __姓名__, and my English name is __英文名__. Ive finished my undergraduate education in __本科学校__ University, Majoring in __本科专门的学业__.
2.1 Personal Factors
I am open-minded, willing and have broad interests like __兴趣1__, __兴趣2__ and especially in __你的专门的学业手艺1__. For example, during the past four years, I have accomplished __你的小小说__: one is ____, and the other is ____. Furthermore, I am interested in __你的专门的学业手艺2__. In __时间__, I finished my graduate project with __你的名著__, which was __一句话描述这一个东西__.
Personal factors always involve students and teachers. This paper mainly analyses the factors of students’ and teachers ’attitude, students’ learning motivation and English beginners’ limited knowledge.
Although I have broad interests in many aspects and grasp the essential knowledge of the major, but I think at present, I can do many things in a superficial level, but not be competent to do things professionally owing to lack of ample knowledge and ability. So I think further study is still urgent for me to realize self-value.
2.1.1 Teachers’ and Students’ Ignoring Attitude
The major that I hope pursue for my further education is __指标职业__. Because I find __您专门的职业出来是做什么样的这里就写什么__ are playing a more and more important role in our modern society. And nowadays in China, with the recognition by the government, our domestic __你正式出来是做什么样的此处就写什么__ industry is growing rapidly and that may provide a lot of chances to us.
Someone says: "Attitude is everything". Although this statement exaggerates the function of attitude, to a certain extent, there is something in it. The effects of attitude on language learning are mainly reflected in the following aspects: (1) the relation between attitude and foreign language learning: the learners who are positive to learn a foreign language may learn it more easily and make progress more quickly .Conversely, the learners who hold negative attitude towards the study of foreign language may improve their learning slowly. (2) The relation between attitude and enthusiasm: attitude directly affects enthusiasm. Those learners who stop learning after studying for a short period and can’t last to the ending time are largely passive and negative learners, the low enthusiasm will result in poor learning. (3) The relation between attitude and classroom behavior: attitude affects classroom activities of participation (张锡伟，2010). Guildsman’s research shows that the student’s good performance is proposition to their good attitude. Namely a student who holds positive attitude acts more active in class, and his grades are better (cited from Dardner,R.C, W.E. Lambert,1972) . Tao Deqing thought that attitude contained a certain behavioral tendencies by itself. It is a important psychological phenomenon (陶德清, 2001). From his point of view, we can see the close relationship between attitude and behavior. Tao Deqing believed attitude affected social judgment, affordability and activities of the initiative (陶德清, 2001).
I plan to concentrate on study and research in this field in my graduate time. And I hope I can form a systematic view of __您的目的职业__ and make a solid foundation for future profession after three years study here.
In our present English enlightenment education, including the teachers and the students, most of them ignore listening teaching and learning .During the listening teaching of English beginners, most teachers are just limited to ask students to listen to the videos or tapes in classroom, and even never give them homework of training their listening ability. Students at that age, because of their limited cognitive ability and self-control, also can not realize the needs to improve their listening ability, or even raise a sense of exclusion. In the process of teaching. The main characters are teachers and students. If both locate the listening ability to an unseasonable place, the listening ability will present a poor state.
OK, that’s all. Thank you very much.
2.1.2Ambiguous Learning Motivation
According to many scholars, students’ learning motivation affects students deeply. As for the English beginners of China, the following characteristics are common.
Good morning/afternoon, my dear teachers。 I am very glad to be here for your interview. My name is ___.I am ___ years old. I come from _______, a very beautiful city. My undergraduate period will be accomplished in _______university in July, 2014. And now, I am trying my best for obtaining a key to ________ University.
188.8.131.52 Having Disgusting Mood of Learning
Generally speaking, I am a hard-working student. I will try my best to finish it no matter how difficult it is. When I was sophomore, I found web design very interesting, so I learned it very hard. To weave a homepage for myself, I stayed with my personal computer for half a month, and I am the first one in my class who own his homepage. Furthermore, I am a person with great perseverance. During the days preparing for the first examination, I insist on running every day, no matter what the weather was like. And just owning to this, I could concentrate on my study and succeeded in the end.
Being naughty is the nature of children. Pupils sometimes do not like learning because the school time reduces their time of playing. On the other hand, the pupils always don’t make their strong resolutions and the textbooks used in elementary school don’t satisfy the students` interests because they attach much to their scientific and logical characteristics. In addition, the teaching method is basically priority to classroom teaching and the teaching method is single. So the students hate learning and don’t like to read and have a class, being unable to complete their assignments. They always look for excuses where they do not need to learn. In addition, they often use other activities which are far away from learning to occupy their learning time.
Well, in my spare time, I like basketball, tennis and Chinese chess. Also, English is my favorite. I often go to English corner to practice my oral English on every Thursday, and write compositions to improve my written ability. But I know my English is not good enough, I will continue studying.
184.108.40.206Being Easily Distracted
Ok, thats all, thank you for your attention.
The students are often distracted when they are engaging in learning. When the teacher is having class, they always look around or outside and can not concentrate on their books and thinking. When they are doing their homework or exercise, they always want to do something else and then go to do. For example, they do their homework for 20 minutes and then play games for another 20 minutes and come back to do homework again. They are often interrupted by other ideas or activities. Not only the above, some students are often absent-minded and always listen to something else when the teacher is having class, even they feel it difficult to follow the teacher’s instruction to do homework.
