On the afternoon of March 29, 2018, the English Department of College of Foreign Languages held reading and sharing meeting of The Little Prince on the fifth floor of the Comprehensive Building. This event invited Wang Haoyong, dean of the College of Foreign Languages, and Wang Zixian, Ren Hongchuanand Niu Yaqing as the three instructors. Among them, Ms Ren Hongchuan as the specially invited teacher shared with students the reading experience of The Little Prince.
First of all, Dean Wang Haoyong carefully taught the students the importance of reading and shared his profound understanding of English reading. English reading ability is the basis for English learners to learn their language skills. Reading can not only cultivate students' sense of English, but also promote vocabulary accumulation and improve their writing skills. At the same time, the dean repeatedly emphasized the importance of vocabulary for reading, and cited practical examples to encourage students to pay attention to daily accumulation to improve their English comprehensive ability. In addition, Ms Ren Hongchuan helped the readers solve their doubts caused by cultural differences during the process of reading and sharing her reading experience. At the same time, Ms Ren proposed her own unique insights from the point of view of identity and believed that individuals should participate in cultural practices positively or passively to achieve their cultural identity. Only by complying with the local customs and observing the international etiquette guidelines will we be recognized by the local people. She also cited the plot of the novel that the Asteroid B612 asteroid could only be recognized after people wore European-style clothes. When Ms Ren recited the touching words in The Little Prince, she not only told the students about the importance of reading, but also told the students the importance of grasping the details in the reading process. The final team demonstration not only provided the students with a stage to show themselves on, but also deepened the audience's understanding of The Little Prince.
Although thereading and sharing meeting of The Little Prince has ended, the profound ideological content of the book left room for the students to reflect on, and the lively discussion and exchange atmosphere at the scene had added to the students' reading pleasure. The success of the reading and sharing meeting not only enriched the campus life of the students, but also improved the enthusiasm of the students in practicing oral English.(作者: 柴鑫 英语1701班 指导教师: 牛亚卿)
