   通过之前12期的“天行学子系列”文章,我们很容易发现,天行一中是一个人才济济的地方,这里不但有雅思首考7分的学生,还有托福首战101分的孩子。

  今天这篇“天行学子系列之十三”的主人公Alice,来自高一三班(中美班),有着非同一般的成长经历,以及非常清晰的目标和自我认识。看完这篇文章,你会发现Alice首考托福101分,并不是托谁的福。

  在天行一中2019级新生中,无论是我们的牛剑班、中美班、亦或是精英班,都有非常多优秀的孩子。在今年首开的中美班中,有这么一个孩子,托福首战101分,她就是Alice。今天就跟着小编,一起走进她的世界吧。

  In Teensen international School, there are many excellent children in our class. In this year's first Chinese and American class, there is such a child who got 101 scores in the first battle of TOEFL examination, her name is Alice. Today, let’s go into her world together.

  有着独特的想法与清晰的定位

  不了解Alice的人总会觉得她是一个比较内向的孩子,有着自己的内心小世界。但在负责中美班的语文教学之时,我早就发现她是一个心思细腻,且很有想法的女孩子,从这次深入的交谈中,我更加肯定了自己的想法。她有着不同于他人的坚定和认真,对自身有着清晰的认识和明确的目标。“我想去美国的阿默斯特学院,这是我在进入天行之前就定下来的目标。这所学校是全美排名第二的文理学院,知道它的人很少,算是一所比较低调的学校,但是我很喜欢它的学术氛围与学习环境。”听到这句话我很惊讶,因为从初中就开始对自己的未来有着思考和规划的孩子并不多,她算得上是一个非常特别的人。“我很喜欢文理学院的上课模式,小班授课。规模小而精,它注重全面素质教育,适合专心学习。”

  People who don't know Alice always feel that she is an introverted child with her own inner world. But when I was teaching Chinese, I found that she was a delicate and thoughtful girl. From this deep conversation, I affirmed my idea more. She has a clear schedule and goal for her own future, "I want to go to Amherst College in the United States, which is the goal I set before I entered Teensen. This school is the second-highest liberal arts college in the United States, although few people know it. It is a relatively low-key school, but I like its academic atmosphere and learning environment very much.” I'm surprised to hear that, because there are not many children who have thought and planned about their future since junior high school. She is a very special person. "I like the teaching mode of liberal arts and Sciences College very much, especially small class teaching. It pays attention to all-round quality education and is suitable for concentrating on learning.

  

 

  Alice把学习当作一件快乐的事情,她并没有感到任何压力,面对繁重的学业反而乐在其中。正如负责中美班托福教学的Michael所说:“Alice获得托福高分是意料之中的事,她一直是一个雷厉风行的人,做事非常有效率,在学习上有规划,并且有很清晰的定位和目标,我很欣赏她。”

  Alice regards learning as a happy thing. She doesn't feel any pressure, but enjoys it in the face of heavy study. As Michael, who teaches TOEFL in Chinese and American classes, said, "It's unexpected for Alice to get such a high score.She has always been a very popular person.She works very efficiently, has a clear plan for her study, as well as a clear orientation and goal.I appreciate her very much."

  听说读写一项也不能落

  找到正确的学习方法很重要

  谈起这次的托福成绩,Alice表示还是挺开心的,“虽然分数过了100,但是还不算特别高,我下次还会继续努力的,争取能达到110分。”

  It's said that reading and writing can't fail at all. It's important to find the right learning method. Alice said that she was very happy about her TOEFL score this time. "Although the score is over 100, it's not very high. I'll continue to work hard next time and try to reach 110 points."

  美国阿默斯特学院的托福要求是100分,目前她已经达到了。

  The TOEFL requirement of Amherst College in the United States is 100 points. Now she has reached it.

  说到平常学习英语的秘诀,她告诉我们:“英语不能单纯背单词,一定要听说读结合,就像大家从小开始学习语文的过程一样。相比其他同学,我更注重口语和听力的培养,听多了就自然能读懂,读懂了也自然记住了。我看着有些同学拿着单词书死背很痛苦,忘记的也很快,这样效率便不高。越难的单词越要去频繁地使用它,无论在写作中或者是口语中,最重要的是找到适合自己的学习方法。”

  Speaking of the secret of learning English in general, she told us: "English cannot be regarded as simply memorize vocabularies, we must combine listening, speaking and reading, just like the process of learning Chinese from an early age. Compared with other students, I pay more attention to the cultivation of spoken language and listening. If I listen more, I will be able to read and remember naturally. I saw some of my classmates memorized the words painfully and forgot them very quickly, so that the efficiency is low. No matter whatever we study, the most important thing is to find a suitable learning method.

  Alice平时喜欢参加很多有趣的活动,例如上海的各种展览、书展、乐器展等等。“我会学习外国人的全英文演讲,在活动结束后主动去找他们交谈,通过这种方式中便能潜移默化锻炼我的口语。”

  Alice enjoys participating in many interesting activities, like book exhibitions, musical instrument exhibitions and so on. "I will learn all the different ways of speeches of foreigners and take the initiative to talk with them after the event. In this way, I can subtly improve my spoken English."

  

 

  有非同一般的成长经历

  自学能力极强

  “在我小升初的时候,发现传统教育的学习方式并不适合自己,过于死板,在与父母商量之后,决定以homeschool的方式接受教育。”在homeschool的环境下学习,Alice的语言表达能力并未因此变差,反而使得她的个性十分突出,她真正的做到了劳逸结合,看书的时候就认真看书,玩的时候就开开心心地玩。“在家中自学,我学习的时间不仅比在学校多,效率还非常高,我会比其他的同学更懂得如何收集有效信息。”

  "When I was in my elementary school, I found that the traditional way of learning is not suitable for me, too rigid. After discussing with my parents, I decided to accept education in the way of home school." Learning in the home school environment, Alice's language expression ability did not deteriorate, but made her personality very prominent. She really achieved the combination of work and leisure. She read books carefully while reading, and had fun when playing. "Self study at home, I study more time than at school, and I am also very efficient. I will know how to collect effective information better than other students."

  她并没有因为学习而磨灭了其他的天性,和其他女生一样,她也喜欢音乐、摄影,喜欢一切安静的事物,钢琴获得八级,书法获得九级。

  She did not wear out other natures because of her study. Like other girls, she also likedmusic、photography and all quiet things. She got Grade 8 for Piano and Grade 9 for calligraphy.

  更值得一提的是,Alice如此特别的成长经历,也充分论证了因材施教的成功之处。而这正也是天行一中所坚持的教育理念,致力于让每个学生找到自己喜欢并且适合的方向,尊重每位学生的个性发展。

  What's more, Alice's special growth experience fully demonstrates the success of teaching students in accordance with their aptitude. And this is also the educational idea that Teensen adheres to, devotes itself to let each student find the direction that they like and suit, and respects each student's personality development.

  喜欢天行的集体生活

  喜欢天行的每一位老师

  进入天行学习之后,Alice在集体生活感觉到更快乐,“比一个人呆着好很多了,和同学们都处得非常愉快。'随遇而安'是我很喜欢的四个字,同时也对我的影响很大,我希望不管到哪里我都可以坚持做自己的事情,不能丢了初心,更不能因为环境改变了就无法去做自己想做的事情。”在天行的两个月的学习生活中,Alice已经很好地适应了新环境,“我喜欢这里的每一位老师,他们都非常负责,与学生亦师亦友,关系非常融洽。”

  Alice felt happier in the collective life, "better than a person to stay, and students are very happy. "Be at ease with circumstances" is my favorite four words, but also has a great impact on me. I hope that wherever I go, I can persist in doing my own things, not to lose my original intention, not to mention that I can not do what I want to do because the environment has changed. In Teensen's two months of study and life, Alice has adapted very well to the new environment. "I like every teacher here. They are very responsible and have a very harmonious relationship with students, teachers and friends."

  很多人对于国际教育存在这样的误解:认为选择国际学校是为了逃避应试教育,但是Alice笑着说:“其实在国际学校读书也并没有想象中那么轻松。我们要学会给自己压力,有了压力才能转换成动力不是吗?”

  Many people have a misunderstanding about international education: they think that international schools are chosen to avoid exam-oriented education, but Alice laughs and says, "In fact, studying in international schools is not as easy as I imagined. We have to learn to put pressure on ourselves, and when we have pressure, we can turn it into power, right?

  是的,这位托福首战101分的女孩子,她的成功并不是偶然,而是一直以来的坚定和努力造就的。在天行一中,还有很多很多优秀的孩子,他们在这里发光发热,朝着他们梦想中的世界名校努力拼搏。同时天行也始终为学生提供更优质的教育教学环境,培养学生的全面发展。希望每位学生在天行,都能成为最优秀的自己。

  Yes, this girl who got 101 scores in the first battle of TOEFL exam, her success was not an accident, but a result of persistence and hard work all the time. In Teensen international School, there are many excellent children who shine here and work hard for their dream of entering the world-famous universities. At the same time, Teensen has always provided students with a better education and teaching environment, and trained students ‘all-round development. Hoping that evert student can be the brightest star.
