English Corner Bring Us a Cool Summer
Does the scorching sun and the sound of cicadas make you upset? No worries! The English corner of 2018 has already arrived in this summer as expected, refreshing for all!
English Corner was organized by the Human Resources department, presented in the form of face to face interactions.
Nerissa, an intern from the United States, was invited here as the teacher.
July 3, 2018, the first course of English corner began.
Before the course began, the HR department and administration departments prepared abundant amounts of drinks, fruits and snacks for the staff.
The staff gradually came to the conference room and people could not help but taste the delicious food.
It was very hot outside but the conference room was refreshing and comfortable, with everyone enjoying the food and drinks, talking with each other about recent work and their own lives. The course was then started in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
The topic was “Introduction and icebreakers ". Nerissa was humorous and often drew laughter from her students.
The staff listened carefully and participated in the discussion, especially regarding the questipn of "What your favorite part about Beijing”. Everyone expressed their opinions and spoke freely. The discussion was very heated, setting the course off for with a good start.
The 40-minute course was seemed too short, with much left to say within the discussion. The class ended with a review of the topic and all the staff was excited for the next class to come.
The English corner soon became one of the most attractive activities in the JacoBio . In here, many employees move from the role of a bystander to the leader of a conversation. From initial stuttering to fluent standard spoken English, from passive participation to active participation. This growth is not only for the employees themselves, but also for the whole company. We believe that with more and more employees attending English Corner, the environment of the company will become better than ever before.
