  • This is a great way to practice speaking at home, but let's practice it right now.

    這是一個適合在家練習英文的好方法,但我們現在先來練習一次

    我們現在就來聽這影片

  • Sam felt relieved that someone else was aware of the hectic situation outside the airport.

    山姆發現還有其他人意識到機場外的堵塞情況時,不禁覺得慶幸

  • Sam told the driver the name of his hostel, which was supposed to be just 15 minutes away

    山姆告訴司機投宿的民宿名稱,這民宿離機場

    你可以造句,用任何句型都可以

  • It was only 15 minutes away.

    旅館只有 15 分鐘的距離

  • Great.

    太棒了

  • We've got a lot of choices, but here I chose to combine these with the word "that."

    我們有很多方式敘述同一個句子,但這裡我選擇用「that」連結兩個句子

  • That's just going to give you another kind of sentence structure that you can integrate

    那只是給你另一個句型當作參考,這樣你學英文的時候

  • into your English learning.

    就可以融會貫通

  • You can take a look at this full lesson up here or in the description or check it out

    你可以點閱這裡或是下方說明連結來看整集影片,也可以等到影片尾聲

    再去點閱那影片

    可以交談的機會,就發生在你居住的城市或是鄰近的城市,那裏也有極高的機率

  • an English speaking meet up as well.

    是你可以和外國人用英文交談

  • Let's take a look at the website really quick to see what options are available.

    讓我們用很短的時間看一下這個網站首頁,看有哪些不錯的選擇

  • Let's go to meetup.com.

    我們現在就到 「meetup.com」網站

  • We can imagine that you don't already have an account, so we'll go down to language and

    我想你應該還沒有成立帳戶,所以我們先往下搜尋 language and

  • culture.

    culture

  • Type in a big city.

    打上都市名

  • How about in Brazil, Sao Paulo.

    譬如說,巴西聖保羅

  • Great.

    很好

  • Well, here we have, whoa, 9,000 people, English speakers.

    讓我們來看看,現在有 9 千位英美人士

  • This is excellent.

    這真是太棒了

  • Click join this group.

    點選加入該群組

  • There's no excuse, go and do it.

    不要再找藉口囉,直接按加入

  • Of course, the more you speak, the better, but I know that a lot of you are busy, I'm

    雖然說你能多講英文是最好的,但我知道很多人都很忙

  • busy, everyone's busy, right?

    我是,大家都是,對吧?

  • So, try to do this at least once a month.

    所以,我們先試著一個月做一次就好

  • Use my other speaking tips during the week, all of the other times that you're not going

    平日先採用其他說英文的方法,以及你不打算面對面說話的

  • to physically speak with someone, but if you speak with someone once a month, it really

    其他多數時間,但如果你可以一個月和某人說上話一次

  • increases your motivation and it shows you that real world application of speaking English,

    這方法可以強化你開口說英文的動機,也會讓你了解現實生活中實際說英文的方式

  • being understood, understanding other people, it's so helpful.

    人們相互了解對方的想法是一個非常有效的方式

  • My third tip for improving your English is actually one where you don't need to leave

    第三個增進英文的方式是,你不需要離開家裡

  • your house that much, and it is host an exchange student for a week, a couple of days, a month,

    也可以說英文,那就是招待外國學生,可以是一週一次,幾天一次,一個月一次

  • as long as you want, or maybe even host them for dinner.

    只要你想的話,或許每天都招待他們共用晚餐

  • I've had a couple of students recently send me e-mails and say, "I'm so excited because

    最近我有幾個學生寄 e-mail 跟我說:「我好興奮!因為

  • next week a British exchange student is coming over to my house for dinner and we're going

    下周有一位英國交換學生要來我家共用晚餐,然後我們

  • to be able to talk together."

    就可以進行英文交談。」

  • In fact, I have three examples of this, that are pretty relevant.

    事實上,我有三個實例可以證明,這其中的相關性

  • One of them was one of my Japanese students who invited a 16 year old American student

    寫 e-mail 給我的學生中,有位是日本籍,他邀請一位 16 歲美籍學生

  • over to his house for a couple of days, so that his 16 year old Japanese daughter could

    來他家住幾天,他有位 16 歲的女兒

  • spend some time with her, but he also was in the house.

    可以擁有一些和美籍學生的相處時間,而他也在場

  • He was taking them places.

    他帶著他們到處晃晃

  • He was surrounded by their English conversations in his home in daily life.

    他每天在家裡就可以沉浸在英文會話環境中

  • One of my other students from the Philippines, hosted a British exchange student for a couple

    我還有一個菲律賓學生,招待一位英國籍交換學生到他家

  • of weeks during her summer vacation, so that she could have some free time and connect

    暑期間幾週的時間,所以他可以有空閒時間

  • with the student, but also show her places and just enjoy this real conversation.

    和這位學生相處,也可以帶他到處晃晃,就這樣享受英文日常對話

  • My final example is from my personal experience.

    最後一個方法來自我的親身經驗

  • A few years ago, I went over to dinner at my friends house, and when I went there, there

    幾年前,我去一位朋友家吃晚餐,當我抵達朋友家時

  • were 15 people from 15 different countries.

    那裏有 15 位客人,每一位皆來自不同國家

  • She had invited tons of people from the local community who didn't have somewhere to eat

    她邀請了社區內絕大多數不知道要去哪裡解決晚餐的外國人士

  • dinner.

    共享晚餐

  • No family to eat dinner with because they were just visiting or they were studying at

    沒有一同吃晚餐的家人表示他們只是觀光客或是

  • the local university or they just wanted other people to connect with.

    大學外國學生,又或是他們只是想要和其他人交流

  • So, she invited these people over to her house for dinner, and do you know what?

    因為上述理由,她邀請這些人來她家吃晚餐,而且你知道嗎?

  • The common language was English.

    晚餐的共通語言就是英文

  • Everyone was sharing these conversations and this dinner in English.

    每一個人談到餐點或是閒聊都是用英文表達

  • Of course, you don't need to have someone actual stay in your home.

    當然你無須讓陌生人住在你家

  • Call the local university and usually, they're more than willing to help their students connect

    你可以打電話去大學,校方通常會很樂意幫助學生聯繫

  • with a local family, so that the student feels more integrated and more comfortable.

    住在當地的外國家庭,這樣學生不但加強對學校的連結而且也能很放心

  • You can host them for dinner once a week, for dinner once a month.

    你可以招待他們來你家吃晚餐,一週一次或一個月

  • You can even just be a contact, if they need a local family to talk with.

    你也可以單純只是擔任聯繫窗口,如果他們有想要和當地家庭交談的需求

  • So, go and talk to your local university.

    所以,趕快去聯繫你的學校

  • Type into Google, the local student exchange program.

    在 Google 網頁打上當地交換學生計畫

  • Try to connect with other people, because being proactive, that means, doing things,

    試著和其他人交談,只要展現積極的態度,也就是付諸行動

  • not just sitting and passively watching, but going and being proactive, is what's going

    絕不是消極地坐著看著,而是要起而行,這樣才是

  • to help you learn to improve your English, without spending thousands of dollars to move

    幫助你學好英文,而且不用花很多冤枉錢

  • to the U.S.

    去美國定居

  • My fourth tip is to get involved in your community, specifically places where there might be tourists.

    第四個方法是積極參與社區活動,尤其是有觀光客聚集的地方

  • For example, maybe there is a festival or event coming up and they need someone to volunteer

    舉例來說,假設即將有慶典或是要舉辦一場活動,所以需要有志願性工讀生

  • to work in the information desk.

    來擔任服務台的工作人員

  • I know for me, when I visited other countries and I needed help finding my way places or

    就我而言,每當我拜訪其他國家,我時常需要問路或是

  • getting a restaurant recommendation, and I went to the information desk, it was so helpful

    想知道當地推薦的餐廳,我就會去服務台,如果服務台

  • if someone could explain a little bit in English.

    有人會說一點英文,對我真的是很大的幫助

  • I felt so comforted and I felt like I could really understand what they were saying.

    我鬆了一口氣,因為我真的可以知道對方在說甚麼

  • If you would like to volunteer at a festival, volunteer at an event, or maybe there's even

    如果你要擔任慶典或是活動的志工,亦或是

  • a English pub, or an Irish bar, or an American restaurant, there are probably some English

    去一間美式酒吧或是愛爾蘭酒吧,又或是美式餐廳,那裏總會有一些美籍人士

  • speakers who work there or who go there.

    在那裏工作或是在那裏消費

  • Feel free to enjoy your community, but you can try to be proactive and find those little

    放鬆去享受你的社區活動,但你可以更積極地在社區裡

  • bits of English in your community and take advantage of it.

    尋找一些可以講英文的機會來讓自己受惠

  • My fifth tip is to speak with someone else online, but this one is tricky and I want

    第五個開口說英文的方法是網路交友,但這方法必須小心運用

  • to make sure that you do it correctly.

    我想確保你們運用得當

  • Do not, never, never write your Skype ID, your WhatsApp phone number, your e-mail address

    絕對不要提供你的 Skype 帳號、WhatsApp 手機號碼,或是你的 e-mail 地址

  • in the YouTube comments.

    在 YouTube 下方留言欄位

  • There are plenty of just bots and different things that are going around, trying to take

    網路上流竄許多網路機器人和各式各類的狀況,它們

  • your information and you're going to get spam calls and spam e-mails.

    會無所不用取得你的個資,然後你就會接到未知來電和垃圾信件

  • It's not a good way to share your information, but also, it's not a good way to connect with

    這不是分享你個資的好方法,但這卻是可以和其他人

  • someone.

    交流的好方法

  • This is what I recommend doing, use the YouTube comments correctly.

    這也是我非常推薦的方法,必須正確地運用 YouTube 留言

  • Let's imagine that you just watched a video about how to use "should have."

    現在想像你剛看完一部教你如何使用「should have」句型的影片

  • You can watch that here.

    你可以點閱這裡來學習該句型

  • Let's say that someone else wrote a comment and said, "I should have started learning

    好比說有網友留言:「早知道我就應該早點向

  • English with Vanessa earlier."

    Vanessa 學英文。」

  • It's a beautiful sentence, but you also feel like you connect with that sentence.

    這是一句很好的造句,而你也感同身受

  • You have had the same experience.

    你也歷經同樣的事情

  • You think, you know what?

    你知道嗎?

  • I should have started studying English with Vanessa earlier, too.

    我也覺得,早知道我就應該早點向 Vanessa 學英文

  • So, you can comment on their comment and say, "Oh, when did you start learning English with

    你可以回應其他網友的留言:「你甚麼時候開始向 Vanessa

  • Vanessa?"

    學英文的啊?」

  • "I agree, I should have started earlier."

    「我超同意你的話,我早就該開始學了。」

  • Start a relationship.

    先建立關係

  • Start to connect with them.

    開始和其他人交談

  • Don't immediately say, "Hi, let's speak on Skype," because you know what?

    千萬不要馬上說:「嗨!讓我們直接在 Skype 聊吧!」你知道為何我不推薦這樣的方式嗎?

  • It takes a lot of courage to speak with anyone in a second language in English, but to speak

    和其他人開口說第二語言這件事需要很多勇氣,更不要說

  • with a total stranger who just threw their contact information at you on the internet,

    一個完全不認識的陌生人直接在網路平台丟聯絡方式給你

  • it's a pretty low possibility that that's actually going to work out.

    這種會成功的機率真的蠻低的

  • Even if they're a nice person, it's going to be not as comfortable to connect.

    即使他們可能是好意,這也是一個不太舒服的交流方式

  • I recommend just commenting together, start to get to know each other, and maybe after

    我強烈建議只要相互回應留言就好,先開始知道對方,或許

  • four or five or six comments back and forth, then you can start to say, "Hey, do you have

    雙方來回留言 4 到 6 次後,你會開始說:「嘿,你有

  • Facebook?"

    FB 嗎?」

  • "Let's connect."

    「我們來互相加入好友好嗎?」

  • "Here's my name on Facebook, let's connect."

    「這是我 FB 的帳號,加我好友吧!」

  • Great.

    這樣就對了

  • You can send them a private message and try to connect.

    你可以私訊他們,試著交談看看

  • Also, of course, if they are a beautiful girl or a handsome man, don't be creepy.

    還有,如果他們是俊男美女的話,不要像個怪咖

  • You know what that is, just be polite.

    你知道的,有禮貌就好

  • A lot of my students in the course, The Fearless Fluency Club, speak together on a daily basis

    許多學生在上我的英文課《無所畏懼英文流利俱樂部》時候,每天都聚在社群軟體聊天

  • in Facebook Messenger, on Skype and Google Hangout, and it's a really great way to connect

    譬如 Messenger、Skype 或是 Google Hangout,這是一個可以每天

  • with each other and learn every day, learn about different cultures and also use English.

  • I have students who have lived in the U.S. for a long time and they're still struggling

    我有學生長期住在美國,但他們依然學英文

  • to learn English, because they don't get out and meet other people.

    學得很辛苦,原因在於他們不外出交新朋友

  • Even if you were living in the U.S., it's not a guarantee that you would become fluent.
