How can we express and understand each other intentions and meanings without understanding each other?
It’s very hard to understand each other.
For example, I am Korean who had learned English almost 15years in
school, but I had a problem to talk with native speakers. Sometimes even though they were very easy words,
I couldn’t understand. let me give example : first day of business I met
she said to me "how are you doing", at that time I couldn't understanding(wrong tense), because(misspelling)
I was confusing which meaning "what are you doing?" or "how are you?"
I have been 2years in California (Fullerton), I have realized that it is
very hard to learn English among non-native speaker without speaking with native-speaker in Korea
(most of English-teachers were Korean who focused formal and grammer
It is very hard to meet and speak with native-speaker on the street in
Korea. If they
wanted to speak with native-speaker, they would cost lots of money and
limit time to speak with. That’s why most of Korean couldn’t’t speak very well even though we have spent lot of times to learn English.
How can we teach English to Korean-students? It seems like that it is
impossible to master the language in school in Korea. But if we knew each other and shared the same information in real time in spite of different locations, we could easily understand culture and reduce the culture-shock. What makes this thing happened?
How to get the live-English and share information at the real time?
The best way to solve this issue is “using the internet”. Now how to utilize the internet?
I recommend an “online discussion site”. It is the modern equivalent of a
traditional bulletin board, and a technological evolution of the dialup board
system. Students participating in an internet forum can build bonds with each other and interest groups will easily form bonds with each other and interest groups will easily form around a topics discussion, subjects dealt with in or around sections in the forum.
We can talk about all types of issues in real time and can understand
what each other opinions by using internet.
