My Educational Experience

My name is Liang Yingyi, a new transfer student who major in nursing from Guangzhou, China. I have learned English since grade three in primary school and fortunately I did well in almost every English test in China. However, in the US I found that my vocabulary was never enough for me to express my thoughts and sometimes I couldn’t even understand in class. Besides, the grammar is another issue for me to focus on.

Before I entered university, I studied in No.16 High School, one of the best schools in my city, which was of help to form a base to my university study. We learned basic grammar of English, useful daily English and writing skills in class. As part of the regular classes every day, we also learned some American culture by video. The English corner provided many opportunities for us to access to foreigners and English as well. My major was biology in high school because I was interested in science especially the human body. At the same time, I really hoped I could devote myself to solve some serious problems of humans and develop a better life for them which were also my dreams. In the biology class, I learned the theory of evolution, the processes and functions of the body and how the nutrition operates in our body.

In order to pursue my dream, I chose nursing as my major in Guangzhou Medical University. I have a passion of helping people and improve their quality of life, so I studied hard in university. I even more treasured the chance of learning English because I knew maybe I had an opportunity to go abroad to further my academic career. With these two years of study and various kinds of practice including reading and writing in classes, my spoken English was raised to a higher level and I got a decent TOEFL score. Moreover, I even remember the detail of the lectures about western culture. Apart from taking regular English classes in college, I started to learn medical English by myself and borrowed some English

My life experiences and the strong mentors that guide me reinforce that this is where I am supposed to be. I am walking in my purpose. Being a part of this experience also confirms the suspicions that I sensed but could not prove as a young “brown girl.” Because I was of a different race, the daughter of immigrants, and lived in poverty, I was viewed from…

    English has never been my favorite subject. In fact, it has always been my least favorite subject. Going through school, I often wondered why I needed to do so many English related tasks, and in wondering, I learned to detest the subject without realizing its future benefits. Why do I dislike English so much? Is it such a dreadful thing to learn? Isn't learning how to correctly write and interpret the English language important? Well, no and yes. No, English is not a dreadful thing to…

    (2006) My experience of the impact education had on creativity. “Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.” Is a quote that Steve Jobs had which got me to think about how I really do feel about creativity in relation to education? I wish…

    Looking back on the course, I feel some sort of foundation experience or exposure at some point in my educator or career so far and that give me a feeling that I'm doing something right. That feeling of defeat, which we can often feel in public education, can be a heavy burden. Then for me, leaving a feeling that I don't know what I'm doing. As we moved through the chapters of the book, I had many moments thinking to myself "Hey, I heard of that before" or "I'm doing that." This was reassuring that…

    wish to return, my heart wishes to believe, and look, its shouting out that “this is no mistake.” We all go through a period in life that’s either reflected in a positive light or a negative one. The experience usually leads us to learn something from it. I thank God for making me experience the tragedy bestowed upon me. For if I wasn’t to experience such a thing as losing my father I don’t know If I’d be the strong individual person I am today, not to sound corny or anything. My father was the…
