英文版介绍:Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag". In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard.

Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education and no one to intervene when one of Tara's older brothers became violent.

Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. She taught herself enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University, where she studied history, learning for the first time about important world events like the Holocaust and the civil rights movement. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to change it.

    我女儿在英语上学习的这段时间的确进步很多,平时英语的朗读也很多了,以前的时候很少自己朗读,在英语的老师的引导下慢慢的养成了晨读的好习惯,口语也很标准了,我已经很少去催促他什么了,现在也很乖巧了,成了班上的英语小明星了,为我的女儿骄傲。

    总之,对于学生的英语写作教学,首先要注重基础知识的积累,其次要加强阅读指导和写作训练,最后要创新写作教学方法,引导学生运用多种情境进行自主表达、自主探究和自主创新。

    孩子刚在学完,正正五个月了跟五个月之前相比儿子的变化可以说是完全变了一个人,特别懂事,爱学习,爱动脑,而且自理能力也变强了许多,英语的外教老师功不可没,不仅教会了儿子知识,还教他勇敢面对任何事情,儿子的英语水平现在跟之前比特别好,说的可好听了,还挺标准的,现在没事就让他看美剧,在美剧里边他总能找到一些新的知识,然后再跟外教老师分享,他们好像朋友一样,我看着很开心

    在不改变文章主旨的前提下,对文章中的一些内容进行适当的删除和修改,让学生在理解文章的基础上合理添加一些自己的内容。

    多加练习除了练习剑桥的题目之外,还要进行泛读和快速阅读。泛读可以选择一些英美主流媒体的文章,熟悉文章中提及的单词和句型。在短时间内快速的将文章读一遍,并了解主旨。

    当初在为孩子选择在线少儿英语的时候我也纠结了很久,最后选择了。当时只想给孩子一个比较好的语言环境,正好一次朋友聚会聊到这个问题,朋友家的孩子在在线少儿英语学的还不错,我就给我家孩子买了几个月的课程,现在他英语水平提升挺大的。前段时间参加学校的英语演讲竞赛还拿到了二等奖,
