สวัสดีครับชื่อของผมเดวิดและฉันสอนภาษาอังกฤษ

00:00:00,789 --> 00:00:05,390
Hello, my name is David, and I teach English.
 
2
00:00:05,390 --> 00:00:15,469
I have taught English since graduating from
university (or college as we say in the U.S.), more than 20 years ago.
 
3
00:00:15,469 --> 00:00:24,240
I began teaching in the U.S. I taught there
for seven years, and one day, my sister said
 
4
00:00:24,240 --> 00:00:28,770
to me, "Why don't you teach in at this nice
school in Bangladesh?"
 
5
00:00:28,770 --> 00:00:35,840
Well, I listened to her, my older sister, and
I applied, and Igot the job!
 
6
00:00:35,840 --> 00:00:37,570
And I loved it.
 
7
00:00:37,570 --> 00:00:39,340
I've never gone back.
 
8
00:00:39,340 --> 00:00:49,190
So, I've now taught in three more countries,
and ... including Thailand where I now live.
 
9
00:00:49,190 --> 00:00:53,720
And I've lived in Thailand long enough so
that I've had to learn the language.
 
10
00:00:53,720 --> 00:00:57,680
Well, I can tell you, it hasn't been easy.
 
11
00:00:57,680 --> 00:00:59,680
It's been quite challenging.
 
12
00:00:59,680 --> 00:01:06,810
So I think I understand something about the
challenges you may be facing in learning English.
 
13
00:01:06,810 --> 00:01:13,060
Additionally, of course, I have a master's
degree in English -- teaching English -- and
 
14
00:01:13,060 --> 00:01:19,570
... so I not only have the motivation, but
the knowledge with which to help you.
 
15
00:01:19,570 --> 00:01:25,690
Now, that said, how does one learn a new language,
especially English?
 
16
00:01:25,690 --> 00:01:29,310
Well, it's no secret.
 
17
00:01:29,310 --> 00:01:36,080
You need good materials; you need a good role
model, and you need motivation.
 
18
00:01:36,080 --> 00:01:42,880
You need motivation because the main work
of learning a language is practicing, practicing,
 
19
00:01:42,880 --> 00:01:45,350
and practicing.
 
20
00:01:45,350 --> 00:01:49,600
So, there's a lot more to say.
 
21
00:01:49,600 --> 00:01:56,320
I just wanted to start the conversation to
let you know that I know you can do it; you
 
22
00:01:56,320 --> 00:01:57,589
know you can do it.
 
23
00:01:57,590 --> 00:01:59,360
So, let's get started.
 
24
00:01:59,360 --> 00:02:01,420
I'm looking forward to meeting you.
