Describe something you learned in a place or from someone=Describe someone who is knowledgeable
You should say:
What it was
Where or who you got it
What the situation was How you felt
Something I learned from someone was about some basic Vietnamese from a teacher of mine named Ellen who is a very professional language teacher trainer in the U.S.
Last year I got some training in language teaching from a certified professional trainer in Cambridge. One day morning in Sept., she gave us a language course about Vietnamese in Vietnamese which we didn ’t have any knowledge about. Plus, she was very strict with us in terms of learning. So, I even got butterflies in my stomach and worried that I might not pick up anything about it because you know how hard it is for a beginner or even a learner with zero foundation to learn how to blurt out a sentence.However, what happened next made us just can’t believe it’s real.
Under some guidance using some gestures and facial expressions together with some realia, we managed to say some greetings and personal information in Vietnamese.I felt it was one of the most memorable periods last time. Because you would imagine how magical it is when you had been able to pick up some Vietnamese in the class where only lessons taught in Vietnamese!Since then on, She just became my role model in language teaching. I hope I could one day make a difference at least in my own little circle.
