I also go to Toastmaster club every week. It helps in polishing public speaking skills.


Hanging out with Americans also help a lot. I use to work mainly with Korean and Indian labmates when I was in the gradaute school and didn't feel much improvement in terms of speaking. I later worked on projects with Americans and hanged out with them more. It made a big difference in my speaking which helped a lot in my job interview later on.

我在故我思,快乐并痛着的乐天一派!

水蓝MM,我输入zipcode以后发现在我们这附近有上百个toastmaster club. 这些club是都有固定主题的还是什么话题都说? 如果到处都差不多,我就找个近点的去了.表情表情


另外主页上介绍每次聚会大概一个小时,那有没有足够的机会给每个人? 多谢啊~~~



应该都一样的吧,可能每次的主题不同。mm可以先去做guest, 多看几个。相信每个club都会热情邀你入会,到时候mm可要沉得住气,找到离你家最近,整体最好(管理,活动时间,etc),构成多样化(单一的学生也不好,大多数老年人也不好,能找到你的同行最好了,呵呵)的再加入。


如果安排得好,一个小时足够了。speech一般是五到七分钟,table topic 一般不超过两分钟,evaluation也是要控制在2-3分钟。所以这个mm不用担心。反正角色都是轮着坐嘛。

找个老美去逛街也不错啊。我和几个死党似的朋友经常一起逛Mall。她们开车太马虎了,又是唱,又是摇头摆尾,根本不看路,把我吓得。不过认真起来,人家还跟我讲耶稣呢,谈一些人生的感触。逛街的时候看她们挑来拣去的,很好笑,也学了不少淘货的技巧,呵呵。


今天又发掘了个逛街对象,人家可是我的健身教练呢,给了她一张VS 香水的coupon,说好周末去。

看看这个,至少适用于我们专业:http://www.mla.org/style


For an authoritative explanation of MLA style, see the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (for high school and undergraduate college students) and the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing (for graduate students, scholars, and professional writers). Please also see frequently asked questions about MLA style.

The style recommended by the association for preparing scholarly manuscripts and student research papers concerns itself with the mechanics of writing, such as punctuation, quotation, and documentation of sources. MLA style has been widely adopted by schools, academic departments, and instructors for nearly half a century.

MLA guidelines are also currently used by over 125 scholarly and literary journals, newsletters, and magazines with circulations over one thousand; by hundreds of smaller periodicals; and by many university and commercial presses. MLA style is commonly followed not only in the United States but in Canada and other countries as well; Japanese translations of the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers appeared in 1980, 1984, and 1988, and a Chinese translation was published in 1990.




唉,我们教授都用APA style。


看到mm的经验总结我真惭愧。好像从来没有特别下功夫学英语,觉得和刚来美国的时候相比没多大进步。表情表情表情 尤其是写作,每次都像挤牙膏一样,痛苦死了。要是看到别人写类似的topic,就觉得人家写的特清楚。不过我中文bullshit的能力也不行,以前在国内考政治大题,我就邹不出几句。表情表情

燃えろ!俺のコスモ!
