ESL 43: English Is So Hard



Download


Johnny asked Dotty how her first day in her Duarte ESL class was. It was terrible, she told him. She understood little of what the Level 4 teacher said. He spoke too fast for her. She had struggled through a Level 3 class at a Monrovia school.

When the teacher asked if there were any questions, she told him that she didn’t understand most of what he had said. He told her not to worry; she could take the class again if she failed it the first time. She didn’t want to fail it the first time, however, or any time.

He gave them homework the first day, of course. They were supposed to write a 300-word essay supporting gun control. Of course, Dotty said, she could write that essay in her native language. But there was no way she could write it in English. She showed Johnny the textbook. The print was so tiny that trying to read just a few pages gave her a headache. On top of that was all the new vocabulary on each page. “I'm going to drop the class,” she said. She wanted to cry. When was she ever going to learn this language?

Johnny hỏi Dotty cảm thấy như thế nào trong ngày học đầu tiên của lớp học ESL Duarte. Thật là khổ sở, cô bảo với anh. Cô hiểu được rất ít những điều thầy giáo lớp cấp độ 4 đã nói. Đối với cô thì ông nói quá nhanh. Cô đã cố hết sức để qua được lớp cấp độ 3 tại một trường học ở Monrovia.

Khi thầy giáo hỏi còn có câu hỏi nào nữa không, cô nói với ông cô không hiểu được hầu hết những điều ông đã nói. Ông bảo cô đừng lo lắng, vì cô có thể học lại lớp này lần nữa nếu cô trượt trong lần đầu tiên. Dù thế nào đi nữa và luôn luôn như thế, cô không muốn bị rớt trong lần đầu tiên.

Thầy giao cho bài tập về nhà trong ngày học đầu tiên, tất nhiên là thế rồi. Cả lớp có nhiệm vụ viết một bài tiểu luận 300 từ về ủng hộ việc quản lý súng ống. Tất nhiên, Dotty nói, cô có thể viết bài luận văn đó bằng tiếng mẹ đẻ của mình, nhưng không biết làm cách nào để cô có thể viết bằng tiếng Anh được. Cô chỉ cho Johnny thấy cuốn sách giáo khoa. Chữ in quá nhỏ nên việc cố gắng đọc một vài trang đã làm cho cô nhức hết cả đầu. Trên đầu mỗi trang là phần từ vựng mới. "Chắc tớ bỏ học lớp này giữa chừng quá," cô nói. Cô muốn khóc.

===================
Tiếng Anh rất khó

Johnny hỏi Dotty về ngày học đầu tiên của cô ở lớp tiếng Anh. Thật là tồi tệ, cô bảo. Cô chỉ hiểu một chút xíu những gì người thầy cấp độ 4 nói. Ông ta nói quá nhanh. Cô đã cố gắng để vượt qua được lớp cấp 3 tai một trường học Monrovia.

Khi thầy giáo hỏi còn câu hỏi nào nữa không, cô ấy nói với ông ta rằng cô không hiểu hầu hết những gì ông ta nói. Ông ta bảo cô không cần phải lo lắng; cô có thể học lại nếu cô rớt lần đầu. Cô không muốn rớt ngay lần đầu tiên, tất nhiên, không bất kì lần nào.

Ông ta ra bài về nhà cho học trò ngày đầu tiên, dĩ nhiên rồi. Họ phải viết một bài luận 300 từ mô tả việc quản lí súng ống. Dĩ nhiên rồi, Dotty nói, cô có thể viết bài luận đó bằng ngôn ngữ của mình. Nhưng không có cách nào để viết bằng tiếng Anh. Cô đưa cho Johnny coi cuốn sách giáo khoa. Chữ in rất nhỏ vì vậy mới đọc vài trang thôi là cô đã nhức đầu. Trên đầu mỗi trang là từ mới. "Mình sẽ bỏ lớp học thôi," cô nói. Cô muốn khóc. Khi nào thì cô mới học được cái ngôn ngữ này đây?
