  • Finn Hello Rob.

    芬恩 你好,羅伯

  • Rob Today we're talking about something we have some expertise in or knowledge about. That's teaching English.


  • Finn That's right Rob. We work on the BBC's Learning English website - hopefully giving people around the world a helping hand in learning a language that isn't the one they usually use.

    Finn 那'是的,Rob。我們在BBC的學習英語網站上工作--希望能給世界各地的人們提供幫助,讓他們學習一門不常用的語言。

  • Rob Well hopefully we're about to make that learning journey a bit easier as we launch a brand new online course

    羅布 好吧,希望我們'即將使學習之旅更容易一點,因為我們推出了一個全新的在線課程。

  • But how long does it take someone to become a fluent speaker of English?


  • Finn A good question Rob and one we'll try to answer today.

    Finn 一個很好的問題,Rob,我們今天會試著回答。

  • We'll also be discussing some general ways to make learning English easier


  • and explaining some learning-related vocabulary along the way. So let's get started Rob.


  • Rob Hold your horses Finnnot so fast! I have a question to ask you first


  • According the last UK census taken in 2011, what percentage of the British population speaks a first language that is not English?


  • a) 1.7% b) 7.7% c) 14.7%

    a)1.7% b)7.7% c)14.7%。

  • Finn That's an interesting one. My first guess is c) 14.7%.

    Finn 這是個有趣的問題。我的第一猜測是c)14.7%。

  • Rob We'll find out if you are right or wrong later. So now we can discuss how learning English is getting easier.


  • Of course there are a huge number of publicationsbooks, leaflets and magazines


  • that can help teach you but there are those people who say that you can't beat the real thing – a teacher. Someone who can explain a language to you face-to-face.


  • Finn Yes but that comes at a cost and isn't always practicalyou might not have a school nearby.

    Finn 是的,但這是有代價的,並不總是實際的--你可能附近沒有學校。

  • That's why in the 21st Century, online seems to be the main method of learning. Technology is allowing the English language to come to you!


  • Rob That's true and that's why we've launched a brand new English course that's available on a computer, tablet or mobile phone

    羅布 這是真的,這就是為什麼我們已經推出了一個全新的英語課程,可以在電腦、平板電腦或手機上使用。

  • It's aimed at intermediate learners and charts a pathway through the various aspects of the language.


  • Finn We hope that by committing around 15 minutes a day to using it, a learner will see a real improvement in their English knowledge and skill

    Finn 我們希望通過每天15分鐘的使用,學習者的英語知識和技能將得到真正的提高。

  • But as well as using the resources available online, how else can someone help themselves to get a better grasp – a better understanding - of English?


  • Rob Well if someone wants to become a confident speaker of English, trainer Richard Hallows has some tips.

    Rob Well 如果有人想成為一個自信的英語演講者,培訓師Richard Hallows有一些技巧。

  • Have a listen and see if you can hear what are the two main aspects of English that you need.


  • Richard Hallowstrainer in speaking English Most importantly, you've got to have a a good range of vocabulary and grammar.

    Richard Hallows--英語口語培訓師 最重要的是,你要有一個良好的詞彙和文法範圍。

  • You need to know lots of words, the more words you know the better, obviously. And similarly with grammar, the more grammar you have the better you can explain yourself


  • We also need to think about pronunciation - learners of English often worry about speaking like a native speakerit's not necessary to have a native accent.


  • Rob OK, so Richard says you need a good rangeor a wide variety - of vocabulary and grammar.

    Rob OK,所以Richard說你需要一個良好的詞彙和文法範圍--或廣泛的種類。

  • The more words you know the more you can sayand the more grammar you know, the better you can say it


  • Finn Or even write it! One other tip is don't try to sound like a nativeso someone who speaks English as a first language


  • All these are things we aim to cover in our new course.


  • Rob Our new course might be a big help to you if you need English for your work, or if you're studying in English,

    羅布 我們的新課程可能會對你有很大的幫助,如果你在工作中需要英語,或者你'正在學習英語。

  • or if you're planning to visit or even live in the UK


  • The British government expects immigrants to reach ESOL Entry 3 or B1 level, before they can be granted citizenship


  • It's equivalent to being able to hold a reasonably confident basic conversation.


  • Finn Well in the UK it's estimated that you need around 360 hours of study to get to that stage from not knowing any English at all

    Finn 好吧,在英國,估計你需要大約360個小時的學習,從不知道任何英語的階段。

  • But this depends on a number of factors such as motivationhow much you want to learn


  • Rob And age can be a factor. Some experts say it's common for children under the age of 11 to be very immersed and be fluent in English in about six months


  • But why should someone choose to learn English? This is something we've been asking you on our Facebook page


  • Finn Oussama says: "It's like my passport. You need it wherever you go."

    Finn Oussama說:"它'就像我的護照。無論你走到哪裡都需要它.&quot。
