新概念英语系列丛书是学习口语的好方法吗?为什么或者为什么不?

事实是,New Concept English是为学习英语口语而设计和编写的。但是,大多数学校和培训中心仅使用它来教授语法规则。语法规则不会教您说或掌握任何语言。尤其不是英语。

大多数中国英语教师和学生对新概念英语书不满意的是,他们没有阅读该系列第一本书的介绍。我怎么知道好吧,这是一个简单的问题。我参加了他们的课程,看到他们做书中告诉他们不要做的事情。我也看到他们没有按照老师的指示去做。

当我第一次看到《新概念英语》系列的第一本书时,我并没有想太多。似乎太简单了。但是,在阅读介绍后,我意识到细心的思想,研究和准备已经融入了这些书的写作中。每节课都基于先前的课程,并且首先使用最常用的英语单词。这为学生提供了学习有用的语言的优势,而不是学习很多不那么常见且没有用的单词。

我的学生通过练习和我为他们创建的视频的演练来掌握新概念英语书的课程。这些视频远远超出了本书的教学范围。我可以使学生从零基础到流利度很快。我使用新概念英语书籍来做到这一点。即使它们有些过时,但如果您知道向他们学习的正确方法,它们都是学习英语的绝妙书籍。

Is the book series, New Concept English, a good method for learning spoken English? Why or why not?

The fact is, New Concept English was designed and written for learning spoken English. However, most schools and training centers only use it to teach grammar rules. Grammar rules will not teach you to speak or master any language. Especially not English.

What most Chinese English teachers and students fail to do with the New Concept English books is, they fail to read the introduction to the first book of the series. How do I know this? Well, that's an easy question. I've attended their classes and have seen them doing things that the book tells them not to do. I've also seen them not doing things that book instructs teachers to do.

When I first saw the first book of the series of New Concept English, I didn't think much of it. It seemed too simple. However, after I read the introduction, I realized that meticulous thought, research, and preparation went into the writing of these books. Each lesson builds on previous lessons and uses the most frequently used English words first. This gives the student the advantage of learning useful language rather than learning a lot of words that aren't so common and not useful.

My students master the lessons of the New Concept English book using practice and drills from videos I created for them. These videos go far beyond what the book teaches. I can take a student from zero-basis to fluency very fast. I use the New Concept English books to do this. Even though they are a little out of date, they are excellent books for learning English when you know the right way to learn from them.

About the New Concept English books: That was really a good set of textbooks which I enjoyed very much when I was in the university although my major was physics. I appreciated its direct writing style with stories were told in simple words which always drove me think further after reading.
In my point of view, the english-to-english dictionary is better than any textbooks since very explaining to each word is a piece of cake for kids to master the basic spirit of the language! I have benifited a lot from the great teacher on both oral english and writing.
