"Good evening, everybody!" said the teacher, Donna. "Where is everybody?" That was sort of a daily joke by Donna. Usually the class started with only two or three students present, and then filled up as the minutes went by. It was summertime. Summer school was only eight weeks long. Class attendance was always smaller than during fall and spring semesters.

"I don't know, teacher. Maybe they late or no come," said one student. "Maybe watching TV football tonight."

"Is there a soccer game tonight? It seems like there's a soccer game every night. Oh, well. Let's get started, okay? We're on page 36 in the workbook. Tonight we're studying participles as adjectives. Students are always confused when they learn about the present and past participles, so we will practice this a lot. Tonight, we're just going to practice the present participle.

"The present participle tells us what emotion or feeling the subject is causing. For example, ‘Grammar is boring?means that the subject—grammar—causes an emotion of boredom. If we say, ‘The movie is interesting," we are saying that the movie causes a feeling of interest. If we say, ‘The roller coaster is exciting," we are saying that the roller coaster causes a feeling of excitement. Any questions so far? Am I confusing you? Is everyone confused?"

The classroom was quiet. Donna looked at blank faces. They were confused. She knew this would take a while. But eventually, the faster students would grasp it, and then they would help the slower students. By the end of the evening, most of the class would feel comfortable using the present participle.

Donna erased the board and put some new examples on it. She loved guiding her students through difficult topics like this one. She always felt a little bit thrilled when the look of understanding came to their faces.

Tiếng Anh rắc rối

"Chào mọi người buổi tối!" cô giáo Donna nói. "Mọi người đâu cả rồi?" Đó là loại câu nói đùa hàng ngày của Donna. Thường lớp bắt đầu với sự có mặt của chỉ hai hay ba sinh viên, rồi từ từ thêm vào mấy phút sau. Đang là mùa hè. Trường vào mùa hè chỉ kéo dài có 8 tuần. Học viên thường ít hơn so với vào mùa thu và học kỳ mùa xuân.

"Tôi không biết, thưa cô. Có lẽ họ đến trễ hay không đến," một sinh viên trả lời. "Có thể họ đang xem trận đá banh trên TV tối nay."

"Tối nay có đá banh à? Dường như tối nào cũng có đá banh. Oh, tốt thôi. Nào chúng ta bắt đầu, okay? Chúng ta xem trang 36 trong sách bài tập. Tối nay chúng ta học về phân từ và tính từ. Sinh viên luôn nhầm lẫn khi học về hiện tại và quá khứ phân từ, nên chúng ta sẽ thực tập cái này nhiều. Tối nay, chúng ta chỉ thực tập về hiện tại phân từ.

"Hiện tại phân từ nói về những cảm xúc hay cảm nhận do chủ thể gây ra. Ví dụ, "Ngữ pháp chán? có nghĩa là chủ từ-ngữ pháp-gây ra cảm xúc chán. Nếu chúng ta nói, "Phim đang hay," chúng ta đang nói là bộ phim gây ra cảm giác thích thú. Nếu chúng ta nói, "tàu lượn cao tốc gây phấn khích," chúng ta đang nói tàu lượn cao tốc gây ra cảm giác phấn khích. Có câu hỏi nào không? Tôi có làm các bạn bối rối không? Mọi người có bị rối lên không?"

Lớp học yên lặng. Donna nhìn vào những gương mặt trống rỗng. Họ bị rối. Cô biết phải mất một lúc. Nhưng dần dần, những sinh viên nhanh hơn sẽ nắm bắt được, và họ sẽ giúp những người chậm hơn. Cuối buổi tối, hầu hết lớp có thể dễ dàng dùng hiện tại phân từ.

Donna xoá bảng và viết thêm vài ví dụ trên đó. Cô thích hướng dẫn học viên của mình qua những bài khó như bài này. Cô luôn cảm thấy vui mừng một ít khi thấy gương mặt học viên tỏ ra hiểu bài.

@ chị lanhuongbm thân mến:

Pictures speak louder than words!

If we say, ‘The roller coaster is exciting," we are saying that the roller coaster causes a feeling of excitement.
Nếu chúng ta nói, "cơn sóng biển đang phấn khích," chúng ta đang nói cơn sóng biển gây ra cảm giác phấn khích.

@ chị lanhuongbm thân mến:

Mình đoán là chị dùng tự điển Anh-Việt. Nếu đúng như vậy thì những tự điển Anh Việt loại nhỏ - đây chỉ là ý kiến riêng cá nhân - không đủ dùng để giải quyết hết mọi vấn đề khi dịch tiếng Anh. Nhũng tự điển tốt là những tự điển có uy tín do nhũng nhà xuất bản kỳ cựu, ví dụ cuốn Oxford Advanced English Learner's Dictionary, Webster của Mỹ . Một cuốn tự điển tốt không những có thông tin ngữ âm, ngữ nghĩa mà còn có các ví dụ, cách dùng từ, hình ảnh minh hoạ v.v...

Nên dùng tự điển Anh -Anh, vì dùng hoài tự điển Anh - Anh cũng là một cách học thêm từ mới, gặp chữ nào không biết là cứ tra tiếp, lần hồi thêm nhiều từ mới. Với lại dùng tự điển Anh-Anh giúp người học suy nghĩ theo tiếng Anh, lâu ngày thành quen.

Trên mạng có nhiều tự điển rất hay, là nguồn tra cứu rất tốt.

Chúc chị vui, khoẻ.

Thân ái

"Xin chào tất cả mọi người!" cô giáo Donna nói. "Mọi người đâu cả rồi? Đó là kiểu nói đùa hàng ngày của Donna. Thường thường lớp học bắt đầu với chỉ hai hoặc ba học sinh có mặt, và sau đó một lúc lớp lại đầy đủ. Đang là mùa hè. Các lớp hè chỉ kéo dài tám tuần. Các lớp học thường ít hơn so với các học kỳ mùa thu và mùa xuân.

"Thưa cô, em không biết. Có lẽ các bạn ấy đến trễ hoặc không đến, một học sinh nói. "Có lẽ các bạn ấy xem đá banh trên ti-vi tối nay."

"Có một trận đá banh tối nay sao? Dường như tối nào cũng có một trận đá banh cả mà. Ồ, thôi được rồi. Chúng ta bắt đầu được rồi chứ? Chúng ta đang học đến trang 36 trong sách bài tập. Tối nay chúng ta học về động tính từ dùng như tính từ. Các học sinh luôn lúng túng khi học về hiện tại và quá khứ phân từ, vì thế chúng ta sẽ thực hành nhiều một chút. Tối nay chúng ta sẽ luyện tập về hiện tại phân từ.

"Hiện tại phân từ cho chúng ta biết chủ thể sẽ gây ra cảm xúc hay cảm giác gì. Thí dụ, 'Văn phạm thật là buồn chán' có nghĩa là chủ thể-văn phạm-gây ra cảm giác buồn chán. Nếu chúng ta nói 'phim thú vị quá,' chúng ta đang nói rằng phim gây nên cảm giác thú vị. Nếu chúng ta nói 'Tàu lượn siêu tốc thật là hứng thú,' chúng ta đang nói rằng tàu lượn siêu tốc gây ra cảm giác hứng thú. Còn câu hỏi nào nữa không? Tôi đang làm cho các bạn rối trí phải không? Mọi người vẫn chưa hiểu ra hết phải không?"

Lớp học yên lặng như tờ. Donna nhìn những gương mặt không biểu lộ đã hiểu tý gì. Chúng đang rối ren trong đầu đây. Cô biết điều này sẽ cần thêm một ít thời gian. Nhưng cuối cùng thì, các học sinh nhanh nhẹn hơn sẽ hiểu được vấn đề, và các em ấy sẽ giúp các học sinh chậm chạp hơn. Vào cuối buổi tối, phần lớn cả lớp sẽ cảm thấy thoải mái khi sử dụng hiện tại phân từ.

Donna xoá bảng và ghi lên trên đó một vài thí dụ mới. Cô ưa thích việc hướng dẫn các học trò của mình vượt qua những chủ đề gay go như chủ đề này. Cô luôn luôn cảm thấy một chút xúc động khi nhìn thấy vẻ hiểu biết hiện lên trên khuôn mặt của các học trò.
