Lesson script:

Imports are quite familiar to Vietnamese people. The preference for imported goods is partly a matter of style, distinctiveness, and variety – not only in high-value products, like electronics and fashion, but also name-brand consumer goods. It is also partly a matter of trust in product quality. Imports from Europe, the USA, Japan, and Korea meet the standards that are not only set, but also enforced, in those countries – something which cannot always be said for goods that are sold domestically.

The domestic market is, unfortunately, rife with goods of unknown origin, including poor quality imports from countries with lax regulations and cheap products made in China that carry false labels and result in domestic brands losing consumer trust. There are still Vietnamese brands with high standards, but the prices may not be competitive with poor quality fakes or the designs may be less attractive than the high-end imports from Europe or America. Yet there are also disadvantages to buying imports, including the practical challenge of shipping, the costs of paying intermediaries and taxes, and often the uncertainty as to whether the goods will be lost or seized before being delivered.

Lesson script:

Slang is an informal dialect of a language that is used in everyday communication by a group of people – often young people. Slang words generally have symbolic rather than direct meanings, and knowing those meanings helps you to feel like a member of the group. Slang occurs in every country and every language; in the US, it is sometimes called “street language” or the “language of young people” – although the latter usually by old people who had their own slang when they were younger. Slang also follows its own trends, creating something unique to each generation.

In Vietnam, slang was once mostly borrowed from Chinese, but, with greater emphasis on English in schools, it is increasingly formed by borrowing English words. Because slang is an unofficial form of speech, it can be used for fun or entertainment or with close friends, but it should be used only in appropriate contexts. Slang is a bad idea in formal communication, both because it can give a poor impression and because there is a risk it will not be understood. Nevertheless, some young people still use slang in tests and even in graduation exams.

Lesson script:

The Netherlands is not only famous for its colourful tulips, picturesque windmills, and flat landscape, but also for the adorable village of Giethoorn. The settlement is more than 700 years old and is quiet, peaceful, and poetic. Perhaps most notable, it is also completely free of cars and dust.

The village was built around 1230 by people from southern Europe. While working in a field, they discovered many goat horns buried in the ground, believed to be a consequence of a great flood in 1170. The village was therefore named “Geytenhoren”, meaning “the excavation of the goat horn”, later shortened to the name it holds today.

Giethoorn is now in a nature reserve, 120km from Amsterdam. The idyllic town has no roads, but is surrounded on all sides by canals over which span delicate wooden bridges. All cars must be left outside, and only bicycles are permitted. The houses have thatched roofs and are surrounded by water, just like an island. The only way to enter the village in summer is on small boats or walking across the bridges, but in winter, it becomes truly magical as the canals around Giethoorn completely freeze.

Lesson script:

London is an ancient city, with thousands of years of history both in and beneath its buildings. From Buckingham Palace to St Paul’s Cathedral to the replica of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the city is a paradise for tourists, all connected together by the London underground – more commonly called the Tube. London is also a huge city that has expanded over the centuries to encompass the homes of 9.3 million people.

Though it is a popular destination for millions of visitors, it is also home to one of the world’s largest populations of students. There are forty major universities and colleges in the city, including world-leading institutions like Imperial College, King’s College, and the London School of Economics, together with nearly a hundred foreign and specialised schools teaching everything from dance to surgery.

It is also, with New York, one of the largest financial centres in the world and home to thousands of banks, investors, and traders, with billions of dollars being exchanged every day. Whether to relax, study, work, or simply meet new people from all around the world, London is inevitably an attractive destination.

The world greeted the first artificial plastic with excitement in the mid-19th century. A well-known 1955 issue of LIFE magazine published an article on disposable plastic, with an image of household items that would together take 40 hours to clean and that could now simply be thrown away. Yet because of that convenience, people have since produced and consumed an enormous amount of plastic, estimated to be 300 million tons per year, and this number is expected to increase.

The world is now facing more than 9.1 billion tons of accumulated plastic waste on the Earth, which, even when collected and buried, still exists for hundreds of years, changing the physical properties of the soil, causing soil erosion, and preventing the earth from retaining water and nutrition. Another 13 million tons of plastic has been dumped into the ocean, damaging coral reefs and threatening the habitat of marine animals and plants, resulting in millions of ocean animals dying from plastic poisoning every year. Environmental activists have warned that the volume of plastic waste in the ocean may exceed that of fish by 2050.

Each second that passes cannot be recovered, yet some people use their time effectively to achieve the goals that they want to accomplish, but others do not. If you find yourself among those whose days pass with little achieved, what can you do about it?

There are many techniques to better manage your time – lists, diaries, schedules, timers – but the biggest factor for most people who struggle to make good use of their time is motivation. The important question is not what you want to achieve, but why you want to achieve it. Dividing your goal into a list of small steps and interim targets can be invaluable in progressing towards your destination, but what matters most is keeping firmly in mind the benefits of doing so. Do you want to buy a house? Then keep a picture of that house. Do you want to make your parents proud? Then keep in mind an image of your parents’ proud faces. By focusing on why your goal is important, it is easier to remain motivated to perform each of the tasks that lead to it.

Architects: English Treasure – Vocabulary, Listening, Pronunciation

As a doctor preserves people’s lives today and in the future and a journalist guides and reports contemporary and future public opinion, so the profession of architect is one that seeks to both serve people today and leave a lasting impression on posterity. When you mention France, you think of the Eiffel tower, England is Big Ben, and the United States is the Statue of Liberty – all gifts from the past to our and future generations. Modern architects seek to do the same, with giant modern constructions, like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai or the Sydney Opera House in Australia.

Architecture is a unique industry spanning two fields: art and engineering. A successful architect knows how to reconcile these two conflicting areas, adding creativity, romance, and a refined aesthetic to their mastery of modern technology and precise calculations, giving birth to not only beautiful architecture, safety, and convenience, but also a beacon of the cultural characteristics of a nation and its people. Because of the strict requirements, many years of study and work experience are required, so the profession of architect is both respected and highly paid.

Teaching: English Treasure – Vocabulary, Listening, Pronunciation

Teaching is not an easy profession. A teacher must be a master of their subject, a psychologist who understands how people learn, a talented presenter, an excellent planner, a sergeant who can keep order in a classroom, and a counsellor who can perceive the thoughts of students and why they might not understand the lesson.

Many students do not realise how much work is required for each lesson. The teacher must choose the topic to teach, plan how to present it so it makes sense, structure the lesson so that it is interesting, and prepare different explanations in case they are needed by struggling students. Only then can the lesson be given, during which the teacher must keep the attention of everyone in the class and prevent the students from interrupting and distracting each other.

Once the lesson is over, the work has still not ended, as the teacher must mark homework, provide feedback, and keep records to track each student’s progress and what help they need. In fact, every hour of lessons requires a teacher to work for two or three hours in total.

Instant Hospital

Construction of a building is normally a long, slow process. It is not merely building walls out of bricks, but also digging the foundations, connecting the water and electricity, installing the wires and pipes inside the walls, and ensuring the roof is waterproof. This all comes before decorating the inside and ensuring that all the sinks, lights, and heaters are installed and working. Most buildings take months or even years to construct.

However, there is a faster method, which requires the walls, ceiling, and even entire rooms to be built in factories and simply put together at the building site, which can be done in only a few weeks for a small house. This is why the construction of a hospital for 1,000 patients in only eight days is such an incredible feat. That a large new hospital would be needed so quickly in the Chinese city of Wuhan to cope with COVID-19 shows how serious the disease is and the importance of taking steps to control it. Compared to creating an entire hospital in a week, simply closing schools is quite easy – but just as important.
