Marlin – The Handsome Teacher with a Beard

??

修剪精致的胡须

幽默风趣的性格

温暖贴心的大叔

属于他的独特标签有很多

……

他就是我校英语系外教Marlin,

来自素有“枫叶之国”的加拿大。

“授人以鱼,不如授之以渔”,说的是”送给别人一条鱼能解他一时之饥,却不能解长久之饥,如果想让他永远有鱼吃,不如教会他捕鱼的方法”,有鱼吃是目的,会钓鱼是手段。教育,其实也是一样的道理。一个称职的教师,不但要给学生以知识,还要教会学生自学的方法。Marlin便是这样一位懂得“授之以渔”的好老师。

他懂得如何去激发同学的学习兴趣,让学生主动去学去做。另一方面,他也有一套独特的教学方法。不仅语气幽默,而且有时会在课上学动物叫,边拍桌子边敲桶,给同学讲解语音语调,因为中国人说英语语调平平,为了更好的让同学学习,他会去想很多办法。重要的是他也会和中国老师交流借鉴教学方法,中西合璧,让教育更快乐。

来自加拿大的他,虽然与我们有着不同的文化背景和思想观念,但这些并没有成为他与同学们相互沟通的障碍。相反的,他坦言道,这对他来说是一个好机会,接触同学们的同时,可以让他更深入地了解中国的一切。

他喜欢中国文化,更喜欢中国的各种美食,像刀削面、饺子、大盘鸡等等。采访中他说到当初来中国很大原因的一部分就是因为中国有很多美食吸引着他。

英语系英语16001班的常智超同学这样评价他:“Marlin的课堂气氛活跃,搞笑幽默,经常与我们互动,上他的课比较轻松,更多的是与朋友交流。”

英语系商务英语16001 班的韩雨汐同学则说:“Marlin平时非常热情,在路上看到都会主动跟同学们打招呼,是个非常好相处的外教,每次都期待他的上课。”

Marlin曾获得过优秀教师称号,还在我校NeuMOOCs平台上录制过关于IT职业英语的视频公开课。

他的英语课堂,让同学们的口语有了很大的提升,Marlin还经常参与学校举办的英语角活动,使学生有更多的机会与其交流。

与此同时,Marlin同Luke、Charles外教举办东西方文化漫谈,讲座现场座无虚席,也深受同学们的好评。

如此深受学生喜爱的Marlin老师,就是这样将快乐与语言学习传递下去,鼓励大家多尝试,在不知不觉中提升了学生英语学习的热情和英语水平,使得同学们的每一天都得有所获。

Trim the delicate beard

Humorous character

Warm and caring teacher

There are many unique labels that belong to him

He is Marlin, a foreign teacher in the English Department of our school,

From Canada, known as the “Maple Leaf Country”.

“Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach him to fish, he will never go hungry..” What he said is that “giving someone a fish can relieve his temporary hunger, but not a long-term solution. If you want him to always have fish to eat, it is better to teach him to fish. “The method”, having fish to eat is the goal, fishing is the means. Education is actually the same. A competent teacher should not only give students knowledge, but also teach them the methods of self-learning. Marlin is such a good teacher who knows how to “teach them to fish”.

He knows how to stimulate students’ interest in learning and let students take the initiative to learn and do. On the other hand, he also has a unique teaching method. Not only is the tone humorous, but sometimes he learns how to call animals in class. He pats the table and knocks on the bucket to explain the pronunciation and intonation to his students. Because the Chinese speaks an average English intonation, he will think of many ways to better let his students learn. The important thing is that he will also exchange teaching methods with Chinese teachers, and combine Chinese and Western to make education happier.

Although he is from Canada, although he has a different cultural background and ideological concepts from us, these have not become obstacles to communication between him and his students. On the contrary, he said frankly that this is a good opportunity for him. While contacting his students, it can give him a deeper understanding of everything in China.

He likes Chinese culture, and prefers all kinds of Chinese delicacies, such as sliced ??noodles, dumplings, big plate chicken and so on. In the interview, he said that part of the big reason for coming to China was because China has a lot of food that attracted him.

Chang Zhichao, a student in English Class 16001 of the English Department, commented on him: “Marlin’s classroom atmosphere is lively, funny and humorous, and he often interacts with us. It is easier to take his class, and more is to communicate with friends.”

Han Yuxi, a student from Business English Class 16001 of the English Department, said: “Marlin is usually very enthusiastic and will take the initiative to greet students on the road. He is a very easy-going foreign teacher and looks forward to his class every time.”

Marlin has won the title of Excellent Teacher, and has also recorded a video public class on IT professional English on the NeuMOOCs platform of our school.

His English classes have greatly improved the students’ oral English. Marlin often participates in English corner activities organized by the school, so that students have more opportunities to communicate with them.

At the same time, Marlin held talks on Eastern and Western culture with Luke and Charles foreign teachers. The lecture was full of seats and was well received by the students.

Teacher Marlin, who is loved by students, passes on happiness and language learning in this way and encourages everyone to try more.
