[其他类]Educated: A Memoir 中文+英文版

英文版介绍:Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag". In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard.

Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education and no one to intervene when one of Tara's older brothers became violent.

Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. She taught herself enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University, where she studied history, learning for the first time about important world events like the Holocaust and the civil rights movement. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to change it.

    我们家的两个儿子都在英语这边学习呢,以前的孩子们都是在附近的培训班里,一年下来没什么效果,跟不报班的孩子比也差不多,再三的挑选选择了英语,在英语上学习一来很方便,二来是没有那么多的妨碍,孩子可以跟老师专心的学习,因为是在线一对一的那种教学,很方便也很专业,现在两个孩子齐头并进,作为妈妈我很欣慰。

    转眼儿子听课将近半个月了,进步很大,每天晚上都会准时坐在电脑旁等待听课,之前我跟孩子爸爸商量着先给孩子报一个2个月的课程,先让孩子适应一下,这些天来孩子适应的挺好,对于英语的教学方式来说他还是很喜欢的,每次下课后孩子兴奋中的感觉,哈哈,接下来爸爸说要给他制定一个长期的班次让英语的老师,要重点培养孩子的英语表达能力。
