什么是FLEX?

What is FLEX?

FLEX (First Leap Experience Xchange)是励步TMC教学管理中心给励步英语全体外教开放的一个思想交流和经验分享的平台。

作为励步给所有的外教小伙伴提供的表达自己的交流平台,演讲者可以在FLEX平台上分享自己的经历、成长、教学、旅行、生活、及不同国家的文化。

FLEX的历史沿革

Why we need FLEX?

追溯FLEX的由来,是当时TDC总监朴明华老师的一个提议,第一次集体思维碰撞是TMC和在TDC的一次会议上,朴老师觉得应该有一个平台提供给在励步工作的外教们,让他们展示、讲述属于自己的故事。

我们的宗旨是不论你是否善于演讲,都有一群愿意听你说话的人,这就是最初的FLEX。

经过讨论所有与会者全票通过TMC National Senior Specialist Samantha提出的名字:

First Leap Experience Xchange.(首字母)

FLEX因此而来。

2018年6月,第一次FLEX在北京举行,

2018年10月,专属北京区外教们的FLEX顺利召开!

Charlie通过FLEX向大家分享和传递前不久励步新产品发布会上的“励步3.0完整学习”的概念。

为孩子提供更高质量,更科学全面的学习,是我们一直以来的目标和坚持。Charlie坚信:

(Loving teacher +Loving content)*Intelligent Technology

= First Leap Whole Learning Experience

Charlie更是亲切地和外教们分享了自己女儿的学习经历,他相信,teachers and parents matter most.

培养最好的老师,提供最好的教学,

运用最卓越的科技,爱与科技结合,

对于励步新产品,我们拭目以待!

励步英语北京区域教学经理Jennifer

Jennifer对北京区FLEX期待已久,她为FLEX做了一个很好的开场,与外教们分享了一路走来自己的努力和不断挑战的性格对事业生活的帮助。

作为北京区域教学负责人,“找到每一个励步人的闪光点”,是她一直以来的坚持。

“FLEX is a very good chance for us to share our thoughts, share a story that inspires our wisdom, share a beautiful vision, sharing our experience, understanding and emotional experience .

Nobody would say they don't wanna be the center of stage . Nobody would say they don't wanna be a popular storyteller, so what are we waiting for? Everybody counts!”Jennifer这样说。

励步游学营产品负责人Daniel

Daniel老师对世界文化充满了热爱,并多期亲自带队带领孩子们到美国最好的学校进行游学交流,他的演讲带我们一起感受了国家之间教育交流的精华。

游学的经历让孩子们有一段充满奇遇又无限宝贵和美好的体验,让孩子在交流中感受两国文化,对世界有更全面的认知,成为更优秀的global citizen.

Through numerous cases and examples, we are convinced that this program can build a bridge for our kids to see the real world in person, to feel the genuine impulse to embrace the world, to witness different cultures and see the world as a whole, so that their understanding of the world is integral,their mind is global, they can think globally, act globally and eventually the whole person is global. That's when a better world can be built, better lives can be achieved. Thusly, we welcome you to support our program.

Zubair 老师

Zubair 老师,是一位对工作充满热情的老师,他向大家分享了什么是Race,Race不仅是比赛,更是民族。来自各个国家的人,都值得被尊重。

“Remember, it does not matter if the cat is black or white, what matters is it catches the mice.”

Kenny 老师

Kenny老师,如果用一个词来形容他就是open minded.在中国的工作生活,给了他非常不同于在美国的体验,随处可见热情的路人,办公室里温暖的同事以及不同的城市元素,都让他感到欣喜和兴奋。接受新事物,体验新事物,感恩新事物,就是他的态度。

他说:

My talk focused on a question I have been thinking about since arriving to China: What is the definition of a global citizen? Through reflecting about this question, I've become to discover the importance of my passport, the priviledges I have back home, and how I can share these lessons and experiences with my network."

Nicola 老师

Nicola是来自励步TV的一位外教老师,在来中国之前,她已经有了自己的网站NICO,而且关注人数众多,是名副其实的网红外教!

FLEX上她给我们分享了一些她和男友在Bolivian丛林义务保护动物的志愿者经历:“除了三点一线的生活,还可以有更多美丽的经历,在南美洲照顾小动物,看到他们被照顾,感受他们对人的喜欢和信赖是所有爱动物,爱自然世界的人最美的期待”

她说:

I spoke about 'Volunteering in the Bolivian Jungle'. I volunteered for an organization called CIWY, which helps to care for wild animals rescued from trafficking, from homes where they were kept as pets, from zoos and circuses, or affected by the destruction of their natural habitat. I spent 5 weeks living in the jungle and caring for baby monkeys and an ocelot. I hope that it made more people aware of the organization I worked for and encouraged people to get involved.

励步英语总部外事经理Winnie

作为母亲,外事负责人Winnie分享的是她的女儿嘟嘟(Judy)的英语教育问题, 从一开始女儿对英语的无感和不太配合,到遇见心仪老师正向引导后的改观,可见一个好老师对于孩子的影响力和感染力,这也是每一位家长喜闻乐见的事情。

她在演讲中有提到最让她受感染的一句话,令人印象深刻:

用音乐感染身边的人,用音乐给integrated sessions赋予新的生命。这就是我们的天才乐手 Danny Harris的能力, 本场连弹4首,从WC到Science,从Art到Reading,从作词到作曲,几乎无所不能!

Ashley 老师

Ashley老师喜欢不断尝试去体验,对于中国的文化和自己的国家都充满了好奇,她与我们分享了各国文化的不同。所有文化的形成都有很深远的历史和独自特点,没有对错,我们需要更多的了解这个世界,才能够更好的沟通和交流。

她说:

Cultural Intelligence is the ability to function efficiently across cultures. The study of culture can help us understand each other and avoid miscommunication by recognizing the different ways in which people of other cultures communicate and are socialized in various values. Research in social psychology and anthropology can help us develop a better understanding of the world and how to efficiently interact in new environments. Compassion, research, and focused curiosity across cultures contributes to global harmony and peace.

Natale 老师

Natale老师,活出自己的样子,接受自己并爱自己就是她的坚持,她说:

The most important thing to remember is that everyone at any time can go through a phase were it seems as if there is no way out, but there is always a way and it is okay not to be okay sometimes, whilst you figure your way out. You are allowed to stop take a second to cry, scream and shout but, after that you get up and you keep pushing. Life is a constant crisis, so live it the best way you can, it is yours after all.

黑白钢琴键交替转换,动人的音符缓缓在指尖流淌,Ethan安静的钢琴曲仿佛把人带入了湿漉漉的雨季和无人的海岸,在闭眼聆听的同时,好像我们也像浪漫故事的主人公在雨里岸边漫步,看潮起潮落。

Charne 老师

Charne老师分享了在自己国家公立小学教学的经历,励步能够提供给孩子的所有教学和环境都是很多孩子梦寐以求的。

她说:

The SA schooling system has very poor discipline, where kids have more rights than teachers to the extent that teachers quit their jobs because they fear for their own safety. Currently statistics show that most South African teachers don’t stay in the education system for longer than two years. The most important thing to realize is that in First Leap we are privileged and get paid for the work we do , have an overflow of resources and have a rewarding job and the privilege to make a difference.

Chris Watkins老师

Chris Watkins老师 ,作为本次活动的主持人和颜值担当, 他幽默风趣,深受喜爱。

同时作为演讲者,他分享了讲故事的重要性,尤其对于英语教学,如何吸引孩子们的注意,如何让他们更好的融入课堂,有自己独特的见解。

他说:

‘My speech was about the importance of Story telling, about how when we interact with people on a daily basis, we are telling a story, we are sharing with them, a part of ourselves. It was about how If we can incorporate the same passion and conviction in our teaching then it would not only benefit us as teachers but benefit our children in making them care about what they are learning and make them want to learn more.’

作为本场另一位活泼风趣的主持人。Alex通过上一位演讲者的铺垫,为我们带来了一个生动且富有感染力的故事!

大家说:

Alex Lee told a beautifully crafted story called "Alligator soup". The touching story focused on a young girl who finds herself in limbo after being attacked and killed by an alligator. Alex's depiction of limbo and the people she meets there was so vivid and descriptive, it captivated not only the audience's imagination, but also their heart as we followed this young lady into the world of the unknown.

金秋的北京,来自各国的励步人,在此刻一起分享他们的生活,旅行,教学,文化,爱好...

为他们的思考深度而惊讶,为他们的演讲广度而骄傲~

一群热爱生活的励步人,

一群热爱教学的励步人,

FLEX ,一场开拓眼界的交流盛宴!

This golden autumn in Beijing, Firstleapers from all over the world shared their life , traveling, teaching , culture and fancies here. We're surprised by their thoughts and ideas, we're also proud of the wideness of their knowledge. We not only have a group of Firstleapers enjoying their life, but also have a group of Firstleapers loving teaching. FLEX, an eye-opening experience exchanges feast for you!

FLEX告一段落,励步外教们的中国故事没有停止。

他们仍将保持对生活的热情和对教育的热忱,为更多励步宝贝奉献自己的能量。
