威廉先生能在短时间内,用自己的知识激励、鼓励和影响学生,并取得了一定的成效。他亲切和充满魅力的个性深受学生的喜爱。

Mr. Williams motivates, encourage and impact students with knowledge that shows practical improvements in a short period of time.?His cordial and charming personality puts him among the well loved by students.

威廉出生于加拿大的多伦多小镇一个基督教家庭里。父亲是个传教士(两年前去世了……他温和的灵魂已安息),母亲是个老师,家里还有一个哥哥与一个姐姐(与癌症抗战多年后,于四年前去世)。

Wims Willams was born in a Christian family in Toronto, Canada. His father was a missionary [who passed away two years ago…may his gentle soul rest in peace] his mother ateacher. He has one elder brother and one elder sister [she passed four years ago after a long struggle with cancer].

因为父亲传教的原因,威廉从小就有很多的机会去不同的国家、城市和农村游玩,见到各种各样的生活,领略这个世界的丰富多彩。他非常痴迷这种自由自生的生活,并且对旅行产生了极大的兴趣。他渴望自己长大后像小鸟一样,到处飞翔,到世界每一个角落看看。他希望将来要比父亲走得更远,看得更多。

Because of his father, Wims had many chances to travel different countries, cities and counties,seeing many culture and knowing different kinds of lifestyles around the colorful world. He has always been a big fan of living a free and easy going life and was keen on traveling. He has always wanted to live like a bird so that he could fly to each and every corner of the world. He hoped to travel farther and see more than his father does in the future.

?


随着时间的流逝,小威廉慢慢长大了。他就读多伦多Redeemer University College大学顺利的拿到了媒体传播学士学位。毕业后两年,他在一家小传媒杂志社当了两年写手。

2015年,通过他朋友的推荐,威廉在中国获得一份工作。他非常兴奋,因为他一直很想来亚洲旅游。

当他的家人听到这个消息后,很震惊,特别是他的爸爸,一个特别强势的人。在他爸爸的眼里,中国是一个很危险、落后和信息蔽塞的原始文明国家。他说,对你来说这是一个极不安全的地方。他认为威廉去那里会有灾难发生。他爸爸极力反对他来中国。

?

As time went on, little Wims grew up day by day. He graduated from the Redeemer University College of Toronto with a Bachelor degree in media communication. He worked as a writer in a small magazine company for two years after his graduation.

In 2005 he had a job offer in China via his friend’s recommendation and was excited about it because he has always wanted to travel to Asia.

When his family heard about it, they were shocked, especially his father, who was known to be a bossy man. His father thought China was a dangerous and out-dated,uninformed and primitive culture minded country. He said: it wasn’t a safe place for Wims, and he thought there could be an impending disaster waiting for him there. His father strongly urged him against moving to China.

?

然而,回忆起往事,威廉说,“我爸爸不知道现时的中国。他眼里的中国都是来自中国电影或是电视剧,还有媒体宣传。”

尽管他爸爸反对他的计划,但威廉拒绝改变自己的想法。“我是一个决定了就要去做的人。”他说。当威廉来到中国,他发现中国的发展速度超出了自己的想象。

However, on recalling the incident, Wims said:”My father didn’t know much about the modern China at that time, what he knew about China was mostly from Chinese movies and TV programs and from the media’s propaganda”.

Despite his family’s protest against his plan, he refused to change his mind. “I am the main person to live with the consequences of my decisions” he said. When Wims came to China, he found that China developed faster than he could imagine.

?


威廉的第一份教学工作是在山东文登市,他在那里当一名口语老师。

回忆起他的求职面试经历,他提到一些很有趣的事。当面试官问他,你期望的薪水是多少时。他不知道出多少钱,因为那时他没有教学经验。所以他做了一个让人很惊讶的举动。他请求在那里当几个月的志愿者,以便他获得更多的经验。哇,这是多么好的一个消息啊!对学校来说,找一个廉价的而且是志愿服务的外教是多少困难的一件事。简直就是上天白送的“天鹅肉”。

Wims’s first teaching job was in Wendeng city, Shandong province, where he worked as an oral English teacher.

On recalling his interview experience before the employment, he mentioned something stunning. When the interviewer asked him about his salary expectation, he couldn’t tell how much he should be paid due to the fact that he had no teaching experience whatsoever at that time. So he made a surprising request. He requested to work as a volunteer for several months so that he could acquiresome experience.

Wow! What good news for the school! It was very difficult for schools to find a foreign teacher with low salary, talk less of voluntary teaching service by a foreign teacher. It was a gift –“swam meat” from God.

?

学校提供给威廉几乎最好的工作环境:弹性的工作时间、漂亮的公寓和自由选择的餐饮…….威廉像是活在蜜罐里一样。

同时,山东人也非常友好、热情和好奇。威廉从来没想过一个普通老师在中国如此受尊重。

尽管这些超过他当初的要求,但他还是特别渴望旅游,能到中国其他地方看看,他想探索这个国家博大精深的文化。

The school provided Wims with one of the best working conditions: flexible work schedule, wonderful dormitory and choice food on demand……it seemed that Wims lived in a “honey pot”.

Moreover Shandong people seem quite nice to him, warm and curious. Wims never thought a normal teacher could be so respected in China.

It was more than he could ask for, yet his deep hunger to travel andsee other places urged him to explore the nation’s rich culture.

?


几个月之后,他开始探索中国,去了香港、澳门、北京、海南、上海和很多中国其它的城市。他说,他对这些城市的现代化发展和文化、习俗的差异印象深刻。

他的第二份教学工作是在深圳,换了几个学校。他感觉到深圳是一个香港很近的城市,在那里他可以随时进出香港。

Months laterhe started exploring the country. Visited Hong Kong, Macao, Beijing, Hainan, Shanghai and many other cities in China, he said he was impressed by how modern and developed these cities are and the differences in culture and style in each of the cities.

His second teaching job was in Shenzhen, where he worked in several schools. He felt Shenzhen is close to Hong Kong where he can easily dash in and out of HK anytime.

?

作为一名好学者,他能出色工作并很快获得经验。因为有了经验,找一份好的、待遇越来越高的教学工作,对他来说并不难了。通过在不同的学校与英语机构工作,他发现一个问题:那些学校还采用很老套的教材和落后的教学方式。大部分学校没有统一的课程,他们的教材不一致,没有标准的教案,如:提供计划外、非功能性、未经考虑的学习空间给学生;用一些不合时的信息来轰炸学生;让老师不停的给学生压力,而没有空间让学生思考如何进步。同时,大部分的老师还采用老旧的教材,教学生一些可能他们在生活中从来用不上的单词。

Being aquick leaner he started being pretty good at his job and acquired experience pretty quick. With his teaching experience, it was not difficult for him tofind good teaching jobs with better and better offers any more. After working for several different schools and English training institute, he found a problem: those schools still adopted some backward teaching methods. Most of the schools do not have a standard curriculum whatsoever, their teaching materials were inconsistent and with no standard teachers lesson plan: giving room for unplanned, un-functional and uncalculated study plan for students; bombarding students with disjointed information from different teachers; putting the teachers in a position of performing to impress the student and no room for the student to be responsible for their progress. While most of the schools still use outdated books to teach students vocabulary they may not even use in their daily life.

?


然而,现代的科技与先进的教学理念是用APP软件和多功能媒体教学系统。多媒体教学,就是当学生在家,就算是父母不懂英语,他们靠自己照样可以用APP软件来获得知识。其次,既然中国学生没有充分的英文环境,这就需要他们在课外的时间进行个人练习。

However, with modern technology the advanced teaching method is using APP software and multimedia teaching system. The advantage of multimedia teaching is that when students study at home, even if their parents do not understand English, they can still learn through APP software and get the knowledge by themselves.

And secondly, since Chinese students do not have the right English environment, then it is required that they engage in some personal practice outside the classroom.

?


因此2015年,经过多年深思熟虑,威廉决定开一家自己的英语培训学校,名为“威廉英语培训学校”。地址位于东莞的南城区。他引进了国际先进的软件系统“DynEd”,这个系统涵盖了一系列备受赞誉的课程。

DynEd方案凭借超过25年的经验,屡获殊荣的成功以及基于大脑的学习理论,DynEd将学习提升到一个新的水平,产生更快的结果。通过独特的学习和数据管理系统,DynEdd在每个阶段都给教师和学习者提供指导。

?

Therefore in 2015, with years of experience and deep thinking, Wims decided to set up his own English training school, called “Willams English Training School”, located in Nancheng district, Dongguan city. He brought in international advanced software system “DynEd” that comes with a complete lineup of award-winning courses. ?

With more than 25 years of experience, DynEd's solutions are built on award-winning success and with its brain-based learning theory, DynEd’s solutions take learning to a new level, generating faster results. Coming with unique learning and data management systems, DynEd guides both teachers and learners at every step.

?

DynEd内容丰富,涵盖与日常生活相关的主题,从儿童英语,初级英语,商务英语和成人英语到专业英语。包含:

孩子们通过DynEd的互动性方案,坚持积极主动学习英语

学生通过DynEd 的成功课程,在学校具有一定优势并为大学准备

学生通过DynEd 的独特方法,从基础到高级能迅速和自然的掌握英语

专业技术人员通过掌握他们所需的英语技巧,在工作环境中保持一定的优势。

?

DynEd is rich in content, covering topics related to daily life, from children’s English, junior English, business English and adult English to professional English as follow:

-Kids stay engaged and motivated learning English with DynEd’s interactive solutions.

-Students get the confidence they need to excel in school and to prepare for university with DynEd’s English for success course.

-Students from basic to advance gain English fluency quickly and naturally with DynEd’s unique approach.

-Professionals build the English language skills they need to stay competitive in theworkplace.

?


Wims非常自豪地展示DynEd系统的工作原理。通过听力和重复,对话和其他学习方式,学生可以轻松地学习英语。当前DynEd是世界领先的英语语言学习软件提供商,其课件在这领域是最受推崇的。

Wims was very proud in displaying and presenting to me how the DynEd system works. Through listening and repeating, dialogue and other leaning ways, students can easily lean English. Currently, DynEd is the world’s leading provider of English language learning software and its courseware is the most highly awarded in the field. ?

?

目前,威廉专注于帮忙他的学生讲一口流行的英语。他每天不知疲倦的研究课程、备课、上课、辅导学生、提供咨询和监督观察学生进度,进行学习评价和激励部分消极学生,让他们在学习中有所收获。他运营学校有两年时间了,业务变得越来越好。

At present Wims focuses on helping his students to speak English fluently, he work tirelessly every day in developing the school’s curriculum, preparing for classes, giving classes, counseling students, closely monitoring and observing student’sprogress, conducting student’s evaluation and motivating discouraged students to forge on in the battle of making English language theirs. He has been running the school for over two years, and the business is becoming better and better.

?


但对于威廉来说,这远远不足。他每天还是很用心的工作,花大量时间开发新市场。他运用不同的方式来吸引新的学生,比如开展户外英语角、举办英语交流会等,只要这些方式能帮助中国的学生就行。

But as for Wims, the result isn’t satisfactory. He works quite hard every day, and invests much of his time in exploring new markets. He adopts variety of methods to attract more students, such as holding out-door English corner, having communication meeting and so on. As long as it can help to improve Chinese student’s English.


他说,他现在在写一本书,名为儿童词典。这本是带有儿童图片与故事的词典。写它的原因是,威廉在市场上没有找到一本合适儿童的词典。当儿童学习英语单词,他们就得查阅成人的词典。对他们来说,这样不好。成人词典太枯燥而且不合适儿童用。但将要出版的这本“儿童词典”会非常有趣。它不仅涵盖了一些新的单词,而且带有许多有趣的图片、小故事、小诗和一些儿歌。我相信小孩们会非常喜欢它。

He said, heis writing a book at the moment, named: “Dic-Tale”, Dic-Tale is kid’s picture dictionary with stories. The reason is that Wims can’t find one dictionary only for kids in the market. When kids learn English words,they have to look up the adult dictionary. It is not good for them. The adult dictionary is so boring and unsuitable for kids. But the upcoming “Dic-tale”will be very interesting. It does not only include some new words, but also inserts some lovely pictures, short stories, rhymes and chants. I do believe the kids willlove it.

?


如今,威廉专注他的英语培训事业。但其实,除了教学,他还是一名业余作家。他业余时间在不停的写书。目前已出了两本书,在网上销售(如Amazon, outskirtpress,barns&nobles, booamilion等网站)。一本是BEYOUR BEST FRIEND《成为自己最好的朋友》——注重如何引导成为最好的自己。因为不管怎么样,你是一直伴随自己的人。而另一本是THEHERO IN YOU《你心目中的英雄》——注重发现和探索你自己的内心。听起来,像是两本哲学书。威廉表示,从小对自己十分的有信心。他不管做什么事,从来没有怀疑过自己。曾经有位伟人说过,“你能看到的最棒的人就是将来的你。”

?

Nowadays, Wims focus on his teaching career. But aside from teaching, he is also an amateur writer. He spends his spare time on writing. Up until now, he has already published two books, which are sold online

[Amazon,outskirtpress,barns&nobles, booamilion, and many other websites]. His published titles includes: “BE YOUR BEST FRIEND”—focus on guiding you to be the best person you can have on your side. Because you are the only person that will always be with you no matter what. The other is “THE HERO IN YOU”—is about discovering and exploring the you in you. The two books look like philosophy books. Wims said he is great confident on himself from his childhood. Whatever he does, he never ever doubts himself. A great man once said: “The me I see is the me I’ll be”

?


可见,威廉的内心非常强大。他总是追求美好的事物,而且从不放弃。除了英语培训,他还有许多的梦想,成为一名业余作家,成为农场主,成为一名导演(希望自己退休后能拍电影)…….人生就是在不断造梦与圆梦的过程,没有人知道你将来会成为谁。”正如当初威廉想不到自己会写书,想不到自己会来中国,想不到会跟中国人结婚,想不到自己会有两个可爱的女儿等等。“但是如果你不断的发现与探索自己的内心,你一定有更大的潜能,成为任何一个你想成为的人——Youare the hero in you你就是你心中的英雄。威廉对自己来的未来充满了信心。(本期毕)

Obviously,Wims’s heart is quite strong. He is always pursuing everything good and never giving up. Apart from teaching, he has a number of other dreams: to be a writer, to be a farmer, to be a film director (he is hoping to produce movies when he is retired)……”Life is a process of constantly dreaming, no one knows who you will become.” In the past, Wims didn’t know he would write some books, he didn’t know he would come to China, he didn’t know he would marry to a Chinese girl and he didn’t know he would have two girls……“But if you insistently discover and explore your own heart, you must find a greater potential to become who you want to be—you are the hero in you."Wims is full of confidence in his future.Finished
