Reflection Paper

My major is international business and I want to enhance my English so I choice this course. I think is good for me to learn English.  It’s my first time to contact the computer assisted language learning class. I can use class time learning English is a great thing for me.  Not only can play games with computer but also can learn many knowledge. When I look back at what I learned from this course about computer assisted language learning, I get a lot of useful way to learn English and special knowledge.  For example: Google Syntax, my-ET, blog, Ted website, online dictionaries, Search Operators and VoiceTube.  All were new learning experiences to me. I would like to share a few good way to learn English.

Ted is a useful website for me. There are all kinds of speeches. It’s very convenient because it has Chinese and English subtitles. I won’t use subtitles at first time. Then I will use English and Chinese subtitles. If I don’t listen unclearly, I can check the word at second time. The content of speech is Interesting. I can learn a lot and improve my listening of English from the speech.And I like to share my feelings and like with others. Through this course, I start my writing of blog.  I can share what I like video, mind and pictures. If I write something in English every day, my English writing skills will improve quickly. We can also view each other's blog and find interesting things.

Our report is about Steve Job’s talk. I have already listened this speech, but I didn’t clear about the speech’s content. When I carefully read it, I lear many great sentence. Like: “ You’ve got to find what you love”  “ Stay hungry. Stay foolish “. His experience inspire me a lot.

I have found this class helpful to me. I am very happy I made the decision to join this course.  Give me a lot of special way to use computer to learn English in this semester. Finally, thank you for your teaching. ^^
