错过的祝福 The Missed Blessings

时间:2020-07-24 14:35:57 阅读: 作者:adminhwh

A young man was getting ready to graduate from college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.从前,有位年轻人即将大学生毕业。数月来,他一直渴望得到某汽车商产品陈列室中的一辆跑车。他知道,他那富有的父亲肯定买得起这辆车,于是,他便跟父亲说他很想得到那辆漂亮的跑车。
As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the morning of his graduation, his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box. Curious, but somewhat disappointed, the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the young man's name embossed in gold. Angrily, he raised his voice to his father and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible?" He then stormed out of the house, leaving the Bible.在毕业典礼即将来临的日子里,年轻人等待着父亲买下跑车的消息。终于,在毕业典礼那天上午,父亲将他叫到自己的书房,并告诉他,有他这么出色的儿子自己感到非常自豪而且非常爱他这个儿子。接着,父亲递给儿子一个包装精美的礼品盒。年轻人感到好奇,但带着些许失望地打开礼品盒,却发现里面是一本精美的精装本《圣经》,上面以金子凸印着年轻人的名字。看罢,年轻人怒气冲冲地向父亲大喊道:“你有那么多钱,却只给我一本《圣经》?”说完,便丢下《圣经》,愤怒地冲出房子。
Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business. He had a beautiful home and a wonderful family, but realizing his father was very old, he thought perhaps he should go to see him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make the arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care of things.多年以后,年轻人已事业有成。他拥有一所漂亮的房子,一个温馨的家庭。但当得知父亲年事已高,他想,或许应该去看看他。自从毕业那天起他就一直不见父亲。就在起程时,他收到一封电报——父亲已逝世,并已立下遗嘱将其所有财产转给儿子。他要立即回父亲家处理后事。
When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart. He began to search through his father's important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he was reading, a car key dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words... "PAID IN FULL".在父亲的房子里,他突然内心感到一阵悲伤与懊悔。他开始仔细搜寻父亲的重要文件,突然发现了那本《圣经》——还跟几年前一样崭新。他噙着泪水打开《圣经》并一页一页地阅读着。忽然,从书的背面掉出一把钥匙。钥匙上挂着一个标签,上面写着一个汽车经销商的名字——正是他曾渴望的那辆跑车的经销商。标签上还有他的毕业日期及“款已付清”的字样。
How many times do we miss blessings because they are not packaged as we expected? Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.我们多少次地与祝福擦肩而过,仅仅因为他们没有按我们想象中的样子包装好?不要在渴望得到没有的东西时损坏你已经拥有的东西,但要记住一点:你现在所拥有的恰恰正是你曾经一心渴望得到的。
Sometimes we don't realize the good fortune we have or we could have because we expect "the packaging" to be different. What may appear as bad fortune may in fact be the door that is just waiting to be opened.有时,我们并没有意识到我们已经拥有或本该拥有的好运,仅仅因为它的外表与我们想象中的有所不同。其实,表面上看起来像是坏运气的东西或许正是等待开启的幸运之门。

    我家的宝宝在这边学习将近一个月了吧,整体上我很满意,因为不用接送,方便又安全,在线一对一的授课方式像是找了一个私教一样,性价比也很高啊,这个价钱能够找到一个外国专业的私教真是很划算,而且我儿子还很喜欢英语,我也试着跟着听了一下,确实是很有趣。

    宝贝儿现在跟着英语的老师学习真听话哈哈,看到这个和谐的画面我就很开心,老师说了我家孩子非常聪明,就是有点贪玩,要培养她学习的兴趣,有兴趣之后学习成绩一定会很好,希望明年上一年级的时候英语成绩能让我们大家眼前一亮

    说真的一对一外教这个价格真的惊到我了,几十块钱也就吃顿外卖,比华尔街啥的良心太多,适合学习日常口语和工作中的商务英语,能满足绝大多数的日常使用需求。

    一个真正好的平台是禁得起考验的,我儿子在英语上上培训课这半年来,英语不断的创新改进,推出更多适合中国孩子成长的学习计划,我跟我同事都给孩子们报了,我们一起见证了我们孩子的改变与进步,同时也看到了英语的效果,开始我只是试试,看到儿子越来越认真的学习,成绩越来越好后我是真的放心了下来。

    小孩儿现在正在学口语的时候,个人认为想让孩子学英语最好是跟着外教学习,是一对一的外教助教,我比较倾向这家,

    听闻英语是外教教的,很专业的,对于道听途说我是一直不是很相信,多方打听了好多的人,想给孩子找一个好点的平台,后来还是选择咨询一下英语,看看教学模式什么的是不是那么回事,前两天试听了一节课,感觉还可以,报了一个月的课程,看看效果再说吧。

    孩子上了后进步真的很大,趁着假期出国旅行也没耽误上课,只要有wifi随时随地都能上课,真的很方便,一对一的上课方式,这种上课方式比较有针对性,能够全面提升英语听说读写各方面的水平。上课的时候老师可以纠正一些单词的发音、单词的使用方法,以及更为地道的句式表达等。

    刚刚咨询过英语的客服,感觉挺亲切的,也很专业,前几天同事介绍说这个教育平台不错的,让我给儿子咨询下,同事家的宝宝很喜欢而且英语口语能力也明显有提高,今晚有试听课,期待晚上的第一次接触,儿子应该会很感兴趣的!

    我只想说他家的设置很不好,分级是根据每个人的水平来的,但是连个标准都没有

    儿子的英语一直不是很理想,尤其是口语能力,特别的差劲,平时考考他,很不给面子的啊,不仅配合,还很倔强呢,自从在英语上学习之后吧,变化最大是他会时不时的来两句英语,反考我一下,我倒是有时被他问蒙圈了呢,未来继续让他学一段,看看在别的方面有多改变吧。

    真正的外教和国人教学是有一定的差距的,在语气上就有很大的区分,英语突出了这一点。

    我比较喜欢他们的教学模式,可以看到老师和孩子之间的互动视频,课程也比较系统,孩子最近很喜欢和外教老师用英语侃大山。

    英语我觉得真的挺不错的。在朋友介绍下在报了课程,目前已经学习了快半年了,孩子的英语能力提升不少,刚开始的时候因为听不懂英语,所以也听不懂老师讲话,不过老师很有耐心, 课堂氛围也不紧张,这点我挺满意的,

    儿子在英语上课有两三周的时间了吧,这些日子来我跟爸爸放心了许多,儿子学习很差劲,我跟他爸爸真是愁的头疼呢,尤其英语方面,这次的英语没有让我们失望,首先是他很感兴趣,所以会主动去学习,然后就是老师的专业性那是没得说,而且课外还会认真的督导孩子们学习,因为是一对一的教学方式,所以讲的会很细致很耐心。
