Essay On My Dream School In English Proficiency
by Tomoya on July 24, 2014 - 4:47am
I would like to talk about my future. At first, I would like to explain my introduction. I am the person who is a student in Kansai University of International Studies. My future is to be an English teacher and to be able to speak English fluently. I want to talk to foreigners in English, but I am not good at speaking English, so I want to improve my English skills. I have some reasons why I want to become an English teacher.
First one, when I was a high school student, the teacher taught me how to study English such as Speaking, Writing, and so on. In addition, he taught me how to deal with problem such as entrance examination. I really respect him in everything. He is the person who is able to speak English well, but he has not studied English at the university, because he was majoring in mathematics or science. I wonder why he can speak English all the time, and I asked him, he answered me that speaking English is easy if you study hard English. I heard from his words, and I decided to study English when I was in high school.
Secondly, I leaned by mistake, when I took the entrance exam. My preferred school was difference, but I have no regrets, because my life of the moment become fulfilled in environmental my school days. It is the most important reasons in my choice.
Finally, I want to teach English for children, because I fault the entrance exam when I took the entrance exam 3 years ago .In my case, I fault, but I want children to pass the test, and I hope that they try not to fail it. Therefor I want to be an English teacher.
However, I think that if I want to be an English teacher, I have to study English, or improve my English skills, especially, Speaking. If I cannot speak English, I will be ashamed. It is impossible to become it. When I entered this university, I confused, because I could not speak English fluently. Also, we had to speak English during the classes, so I didn’t have a confidence to improve my English skills or not. I sometimes thought everyone was confusing like me, and I decided to help each other and decided to enjoy having a day in our school lives. When I was a freshman, I didn’t think about my future, but as I growing, I concerned about my future, especially, after graduation. I don’t know whether I can get a job or not. I really think about this and try to improve my motivation every time. I think if I can speak English well, I can contact with foreigners in English. Also, I want to talk to them, so I decided to study English.
Anyway, I am going to study abroad to Taiwan for one year to improve my English ability. I can study only English, but also Chinese, too. I have never been to there, so I decided to go to Taiwan. To be honest, I am nervous, because my English skill is poor and I don’t know everything about Taiwan. However, I am looking forward to going Taiwan. In my case, I am going to share the room with my roommates in the dormitory. I wish I could have many foreign friends. In addition, I also try to talk to them in English or Chinese. I am studying Chinese. If I didn’t study Chinese, I must be confused, because of languages. I also think “what are they talking about?” “What do you want to do?” etc… If I don’t understand what they said, I cannot understand anything. I have just imagined when I feel nervous. Actually, I have a friend who is Chinese student in my university. She said me that if you want to study Chinese, ask me, she said. I was extremely happy, because I didn’t think she talked me about that. At the same time, I said her that if you don’t understand Japanese, please asks me. I have to study abroad. It means nobody can help me everything, because they don’t know me and never talked to me. When I arrived at Taiwan, I need to go one self. I have never been to other countries by one self, so I don’t know whether I really can go or not. I think if I have lost ways, what should I do?
I have these issues, but when I get back to Japan, my characteristic will be strong. In addition, I have also huge confidence for everything. I have to go junior high school on my third year as a teacher. In Japan, it calls teaching practicums. Those who wants to be an English teacher or something teacher should take part in this program. I heard from my senior students, they said it was very hard. Almost all people talked me that. After I heard their experience, I could have motivation, on the other hand, I felt nervous, too. Some of the senior student who can speak English well, and I respect them, but they said it was very hard and it made them tired. Absolutely, I will be confusing two years later. Therefor I decided to go Taiwan and to improve my confidence. I wish I could speak English or Chinese fluently.
Finally, I would like to explain about Taiwanese famous thing. For example, food, building. I heard from my frien.ds it is very delicious. Especially, there is such as ramen in Taiwan. I have never eaten such as Chinese food, so I chose that I will go to Taiwan. There are a lot of famous things in Taiwan, such as building. It is famous for the anime movie, as you know, there is a place where locates to the suburb in north in Taiwan. You can go to see them. This place are using by kinds of watch movies. Do you know the “Mononoke Princes” in Japan? It famous for the world and you maybe know this one. If you interested in my writing passage or favor for my topic, I recommend you to watch this movie. Thank you for reading my essay.
There is much work to do to improve schools across the globe, says Geetha Kanniah, 17, a Correspondent from Malaysia, who describes attributes that she would like to see as common standards for all schools.
My dream school is first of all a school where life begins with the teacher who is full of passion and liveliness. The teacher not only grabs the students’ attention but keeps them on the edge of their seats wanting to know more. His or her enthusiasm ignites that spark of excitement that opens receiving minds to wider fields of knowledge. Such a teacher asks more questions from the students, explores with the students and is a friend to them.
My dream school is a school where teaching methods vary from the use of contemporary technologies like robotics to out-of-class experiences. Those experiences are important because they do not confine students to the four walls of a classroom.
There would also be integrated learning of subjects both in the Arts and Sciences so that the education received would not be about confining but expanding. Given choices, students get a sense of freedom, can express opinions and will be more sociable. All these make them better persons in society, possessing a wide range of skills.
My dream school would be complete with amazing facilities like classroom labs, pools, and gyms. A library and counselling centre would be at hand to enable students to be more familiar with their subjects and themselves. Studying in a hands-on environment allows students to use their five senses to gain knowledge. It moulds them to be excited about their abilities and excel with them. Also at hand would be a canteen stocked with healthy food. A balanced diet is vital for students who spend many hours in school. Clean, non-processed, nutritious food is a key feeding requirement for students.
Foreign exchange programs in my dream school would create understanding and respect. They would satisfy curiosities and instil intercultural awareness. They would be open to all students, rich and poor. Including students from all parts of the world would make this education truly global.
Sports would be given equal emphasis with academics. After all, education is not only for the mind but for the whole self – mentally and physically. Sporting activities instil a healthy lifestyle by encouraging students to be physically fit, emotionally strong, and have good self-esteem. They build team spirit, and at the same time encourage individuality. Through sports, people from different backgrounds meet and learn to respect each other.
Academic subjects must be relevant. The syllabus would include significant impact fields like environmental studies, political views, and economic struggles. It would grab the attention of students and lead them to action.
Improving schools would require international collaboration. Such cooperation would encourage dialogue and lead to common standards. Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the great engine of development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that the child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation”.
Education can bring a change in someone’s future as Mr. Mandela observed. The struggle to keep fulfilling that observation must be made by us. Students need to be inspired, amazed and be aware of endless opportunities.
While school is the best thing that ever happened to mankind, there is still yet more to do.
