Keep studying Chinese! Thank you!

00:00:45,500 –> 00:00:51,500
Hǎo ~ nà shǒuxiān wǒ lái gēn dàjiā liáo yīxià wǒ de gōngzuò,
好~ 那首先我来跟大家聊一下我的工作,
First, I want to talk about my former job,

00:00:51,500 –> 00:00:54,666
Yǐjí wǒ cízhí de yuányīn.
以及我辞职的原因。
and why I quit.

00:00:55,500 –> 00:00:58,750
Wǒ yuánlái de gōngzuò shì yī míng zhùjiào
我原来的工作是一名助教
I was an English teaching assistant.

00:00:58,750 –> 00:01:03,416
Gùmíngsīyì, yě jiùshì xiézhù wàijiào shàngkè.
顾名思义,也就是协助外教上课。
As its name implies, it was to assist foreign teachers.

00:01:04,500 –> 00:01:10,041
Wǒmen zǒnggòng yǒu sì wèi wàijiào, fēnbié láizì bùtóng de guójiā.
我们总共有四位外教,分别来自不同的国家。
We had four foreign teachers, they were from different countries.

00:01:10,041 –> 00:01:16,541
Yǒu cóng měiguó lái de, yǒu jiānádà lái de, yěyǒu cóng ōuzhōu lái de.
有从美国来的,有加拿大来的,也有从欧洲来的。
They were from America, Canada, and Europe.

00:01:17,458 –> 00:01:24,000
Gēn wǒ dādàng de shì měiguó de wàijiào, hái yǒuyī wèi èluósī de wàijiào.
跟我搭档的是美国的外教,还有一位俄罗斯的外教。
I was responsible for supporting two foreign teachers, they were from America and Russia.

00:01:25,500 –> 00:01:30,500
Wǒ zài zhè jiā xuéxiào rènzhí jiāngjìn yī nián bàn de shíjiān.
我在这家学校任职将近一年半的时间。
I worked in the school for about a year and half.

00:01:30,500 –> 00:01:35,500
Zài zhè qíjiān, bù tíng de huàn wàijiào, rényuán hěn bù wěndìng.
在这期间,不停地换外教,人员很不稳定。
During the time, the foreign teachers changed constantly.

00:01:36,125 –> 00:01:39,791
Zhè yě gěi wǒ de gōngzuò zēngtiānle hěn dà de kùnnán
这也给我的工作增添了很大的困难
It made my work difficult.

00:01:40,333 –> 00:01:42,583
Dànshì wǒ yě doū áo guòláile.
但是我也都熬过来了。
But I managed to survive.

00:01:42,583 –> 00:01:49,625
Érqiě jiùshì yīnwèi zhèyàng de biàndòng ràng wǒ chéngzhǎngle hěnduō
而且就是因为这样的变动让我成长了很多
The difficulties provided me a chance to grow.

00:01:49,625 –> 00:01:51,333
Zhè ràng wǒ hěn xīnwèi!
这让我很欣慰!
The challenge made me a little happy!

00:01:52,541 –> 00:01:57,500
Dàjiā zhīdào zhōngguó de jiāzhǎng hěn zhòngshì běntǔ wàijiào.
大家知道中国的家长很重视本土外教。
As you may know, Chinese parents think very highly of native English speakers.

00:01:58,041 –> 00:02:01,000
Xuéxiào yě duì zhī fēicháng zhòngshì.
学校也对之非常重视。
Schools also pay attention to hiring native English speakers.

00:02:01,000 –> 00:02:03,583
Zhè jiù dǎozhìle yī zhǒng xiànxiàng.
这就导致了一种现象。
Because native English speakers are so valued in China, it sometimes causes problems.

00:02:04,791 –> 00:02:06,875
Wàijiào shì shàngdì!
外教是上帝!
Foreigners in English training schools are Gods!

00:02:07,875 –> 00:02:12,458
Tāmen de shōurù yuǎn bǐ wǒmen zhōngguó rén gāo dé duō.
他们的收入远比我们中国人高得多。
They make much more money than Chinese.

00:02:13,708 –> 00:02:16,875
Qíshí wǒ bù fǎnduì tāmen ná gāoxīn.
其实我不反对他们拿高薪。
Actually I don’t have problems with them getting high salary.

00:02:16,875 –> 00:02:22,541
Wǒ bù chǐ de shì tāmen názhe zhème gāo de gōngzī,
我不耻的是他们拿着这么高的工资,
What I hate is that they make great money,

00:02:22,541 –> 00:02:30,875
Kěshì què méiyǒu yòngxīn, rènzhēn de qù gōngzuò.
可是却没有用心,认真地去工作。
but they don’t take the job seriously.

00:02:30,875 –> 00:02:36,000
Jiàoyù zài wǒ xīnzhōng yīzhí shì yīgè shénshèng de shìyè
教育在我心中一直是一个神圣的事业
In my mind, education is a kind of very important duty.

00:02:37,416 –> 00:02:40,583
Bùguǎn xuéshēng tàidù rúhé,
不管学生态度如何,
No matter how students behave,

00:02:40,583 –> 00:02:45,625
Wǒ rènwéi wǒmen dōu yīnggāi jìnlì ér wéi.
我认为我们都应该尽力而为。
I think teachers should always do their best.

00:02:46,333 –> 00:02:51,583
Dāngránle, yě bù bùshì suǒyǒu de wàijiào dōu bàozhe zhè zhǒng tàidù
当然了,也不不是所有的外教都抱着这种态度
Of course not every foreign teacher has this bad attitude.

00:02:51,583 –> 00:02:54,958
Yěyǒu fēicháng rènzhēn fù zérèn de wàijiào.
也有非常认真负责任的外教。
There are serious, responsible foreign teachers.

00:02:54,958 –> 00:02:57,125
Zhè ràng wǒ qīnpèi yǒu jiā!
这让我敬佩有加!
I respect them a lot!

00:02:58,041 –> 00:03:04,166
Bùguò zǐxì fēnxī, shì shuí zàojiùle wàijiào de zhè zhǒng tàidù ne?
不过仔细分析,是谁造就了外教的这种态度呢?
However, if you analyze this problem, who caused foreign teachers have this kind of bad attitude?

00:03:05,250 –> 00:03:09,250
Wǒ rènwéi zhōngguó rén shǒuxiān dë fù yībùfèn zérèn
我认为中国人首先得负一部分责任
I think Chinese are partly responsible.

00:03:09,708 –> 00:03:12,875
Jiùshì yīnwèi wǒmen duì tāmen tài zhòngshì,
就是因为我们对他们太重视,
We think too highly of foreign English teachers,

00:03:13,708 –> 00:03:20,541
Suǒyǐ tāmen cái huì juédé, fǎnzhèng nǐmen hěn zhòngshì wǒ, wǒ wúsuǒwèi!
所以他们才会觉得,反正你们很重视我,我无所谓!
that’s why they don’t care!

00:03:21,416 –> 00:03:27,000
Rúguǒ shì wǒ, nà wǒ yě hěn yuànyì názhe hěngāo de gōngzī, zuòzhe zuì qīngsōng de shì
如果是我,那我也很愿意拿着很高的工资,做着最轻松的事
If I were them, I will probably have the same attitude.

00:03:27,000 –> 00:03:28,250
Nǐ shuō duì bùduì?
你说对不对?
Right?

00:03:29,791 –> 00:03:34,333
Shuō dào xuéxiào, wǒ hái zhēndé hǎohǎo gēn nǐ liáo yī liáo.
说到学校,我还真得好好跟你聊一聊。
Speaking of schools, I want to talk about them a little bit more.

00:03:35,000 –> 00:03:41,875
Wǒ shì zhùjiào, běn yìng gāi zhǐshì xiézhù wàijiào éryǐ!
我是助教,本应该只是协助外教而已!
I was a teaching assistant, I was supposed to JUST assistant foreign teachers.

00:03:42,333 –> 00:03:45,958
Kě wàn yī nǎ tiān kè zhēndé shàng de bù hǎo
可万一哪天课真得上的不好
But if the class didn’t go well,

00:03:46,416 –> 00:03:53,250
Gēn lǐngdǎo yī shuō, zhè lǐngdǎo bù huì mángzhe qù gēn wàijiào gōutōng
跟领导一说,这领导不会忙着去跟外教沟通
If I reported the situation to my managers, they would not try to discipline the foreign teachers,

00:03:53,250 –> 00:03:56,000
Ér shì xiān bǎ nǐ gěi shuō yī dùn!
而是先把你给说一顿!
Instead, they would blame me!!!

00:03:57,291 –> 00:04:02,208
Nǐ shuōkè shàng dé bù hǎo, nǐ měitiān doū zài zhèlǐ bàoyuàn, yǒu shé me yòng ne?
你说课上得不好,你每天都在这里抱怨,有什么用呢?
They would say:” What’s the point of complaining about them?

00:04:02,208 –> 00:04:09,666
Nǐ wèishéme bù zìjǐ xiǎng xiǎng bànfǎ gēn wàijiào gōutōng rúhé qù tígāo kètáng zhìliàng?
你为什么不自己想想办法跟外教沟通如何去提高课堂质量?
Why don’t you figure out a way to talk to them and try to improve the class?”

82
00:04:09,666 –> 00:04:10,250

83
00:04:10,250 –> 00:04:12,458
Kěshì wǒ xīnlǐ xiǎngle,
可是我心里想了,
But I felt,

00:04:12,458 –> 00:04:17,500
Wǒ zhǐshì zhùjiào, rénjiā wàijiào bù huì tīng wǒ de ya!
我只是助教,人家外教不会听我的呀!
I was just a teaching assistant, why would they listen to me?

00:04:17,500 –> 00:04:20,583
Wǒ yòu bùshì tā de lǐngdǎo, duì ba?
我又不是他的领导,对吧?
I am not their boss, right?

00:04:20,583 –> 00:04:24,291
Rúguǒ wǒ yǒu jiāo tāmen qù shàngkè de běnlǐng,
如果我有教他们去上课的本领,
If I could teach the foreign teachers how to teach,

00:04:25,791 –> 00:04:28,666
Nà wǒ wánquán méiyǒu bìyào zài zhèlǐ dāng zhùjiào ma
那我完全没有必要在这里当助教嘛
why was I a teaching assistant?

00:04:28,666 –> 00:04:31,250
Wǒ wánquán kěyǐ qù dāng zhǔjiào, duì bùduì?
我完全可以去当主教,对不对?
I could just be the main teacher, right?

00:04:32,708 –> 00:04:37,291
Suǒyǐ wǒ juédé zhè yīdiǎn shì tǐng bù gōngpíng de!
所以我觉得这一点是挺不公平的!
I think that was unfair!

00:04:38,708 –> 00:04:42,291
Hěnduō wàiguó péngyǒu dōu gēn wǒ shuō
很多外国朋友都跟我说
A lot of foreign friends told me that

00:04:44,166 –> 00:04:47,791
It’s so easy to live in China!

00:04:47,791 –> 00:04:53,375
Everything is cheap, and you can make a lot of money without any effort!

00:04:54,083 –> 00:04:58,208
Rúguǒ wǒmen duì tāmen yāoqiú tài kēkè,
如果我们对他们要求太苛刻,
So if we requires too much from them,

00:04:59,083 –> 00:05:04,000
Tāmen bù liú zài zhōngguó dehuà, nà wǒmen de yīngyǔ zhème bàn?
他们不留在中国的话,那我们的英语这么办?
then they will not stay in China, who will teach English?

00:05:05,458 –> 00:05:07,875
Zhège wèntí hái zhēn bù hǎo jiějué
这个问题还真不好解决
This is a difficult problem to solve.

00:05:07,875 –> 00:05:12,916
Érqiě zhàn zài xuéxiào de lìchǎng, xuéxiào yě xiǎng yào zhuànqián.
而且站在学校的立场,学校也想要赚钱。
Also, English training schools want to make money.

00:05:12,916 –> 00:05:20,500
Zǒngzhī, wǒ shàngmiàn suǒ miáoshù de yě zhǐshì wǒ cízhí de yī xiǎo bùfèn yuányīn
总之,我上面所描述的也只是我辞职的一小部分原因
What I just said is just a part of the reason I quit.

00:05:20,500 –> 00:05:24,208
Hái yǒu yīgè wǒ sīrén de yuányīn jiùshì ~
还有一个我私人的原因就是~
There is also a personal reason which is

00:05:26,083 –> 00:05:30,125
Wǒ shì pànzhe nénggòu duō jiēchù yīngyǔ,
我是盼着能够多接触英语,
at the time I took the job, I was hoping I would be in an English speaking environment.

00:05:30,875 –> 00:05:34,583
Xīwàng nénggòu duì wǒ de yīngyǔ yǒu suǒ bāngzhù,
希望能够对我的英语有所帮助.
and it would help to improve my English.

00:05:35,083 –> 00:05:40,541
Dànshì wǒ de yīngyǔ hái méiyǒu jìnbù, fǎn’ér tuìbùle!
但是我的英语还没有进步,反而退步了!
Yet, my English didn’t improve, instead, it got worse!

00:05:40,541 –> 00:05:42,750
Nǐ shuō qí bù qíguài?
你说奇不奇怪?
Isn’t it weird?

00:05:42,750 –> 00:05:45,791
Nà wǒ zìjǐ zǐxì fēnxīle yīxià,
那我自己仔细分析了一下,
I thought about why this happened,

00:05:45,791 –> 00:05:47,750
Yuányīn yěyǒu liǎng diǎn
原因也有两点
There are also two reasons,

00:05:48,708 –> 00:05:50,166
Dì yī jiùshì ~
第一就是~
The first one is

00:05:52,041 –> 00:05:55,541
Zài xuéxiào, měitiān jiǎng yīngyǔ shì méiyǒu cuò
在学校,每天讲英语是没有错
In the school, I did speak English,

00:05:55,541 –> 00:06:00,541
Dànshì chōngqíliàng jiùshì xiǎoxué shuǐpíng
但是充其量就是小学水平
BUT it was at best, at primary school level.

00:06:00,541 –> 00:06:04,750
Měitiān bùshì shuǐguǒ jiùshì dòngwù!
每天不是水果就是动物!
Everyday we talked about simple things like fruits or animals!

00:06:05,416 –> 00:06:12,708
Fǎnzhèng měitiān doū shì apple! Apple! Apple! Strawberry! Nà hái suàn nán dele!!!
反正每天都是apple! apple! apple! strawberry! 那还算难的了!!!
Everything was apple, apple, apple, strawberry! strawberry is a difficult one!

00:06:13,625 –> 00:06:14,750
Huòzhě jiùshì ~
或者就是~
Or

00:06:15,291 –> 00:06:19,291
dog,pig,colors!

00:06:19,291 –> 00:06:24,166
Nà gēn wàijiào ne, wǒ gēn tāmen yěshì hǎo péngyǒu
那跟外教呢,我跟他们也是好朋友
Actually I was good friend with the foreign teachers.

00:06:24,166 –> 00:06:29,041
Dànshì wǒ gēn tāmen de duìhuà yě jǐn xiànyú jīběn duìhuà
但是我跟他们的对话也仅限于基本对话
but the conversation between us was very basics

00:06:29,041 –> 00:06:34,083
Zhège shì wǒ zài jìn xuéxiào zhīqián jiù yǐjīng yǒu de nénglìle
这个是我在进学校之前就已经有的能力了
I already had this ability before I started working at the school.

00:06:34,083 –> 00:06:41,958
Suǒyǐ ne, zài zhè yī nián bàn de shíjiān, wǒ shì bìng méiyǒu shuō zài yīngyǔ shàngmiàn yǒu hěn dà de yīgè tūpò.
所以呢,在这一年半的时间,我是并没有说在英语上面有很大的一个突破。
So during the time at the school, there was no major improvement in my English.

00:06:41,958 –> 00:06:48,833
Zhè yīdiǎn ràng wǒ juédé, yīnggāi shuō huì juédé yǒudiǎn shīwàng ba.
这一点让我觉得,应该说觉得会有点失望吧。
It made me a little bit disappointed.

00:06:48,833 –> 00:06:52,666
Yě méiyǒu dádào xīnlǐ yùqī de nà zhǒng xiàoguǒ
也没有达到心里预期的那种效果
It didn’t meet my hope.

00:06:52,666 –> 00:06:56,041
Dì èr diǎn yěshì zuì guānjiàn de yīdiǎn
第二点也是最关键的一点
The second reason, the key reason

00:06:56,041 –> 00:07:00,333
Nà jiùshì wǒ de jījíxìng wánquán méiyǒu yǐqián nàme gāole!
那就是我的积极性完全没有以前那么高了!
My motivation was not as strong as before

00:07:00,958 –> 00:07:05,500
Zhǎodào zhè fèn gōngzuò zhīhòu, zì rènwéi zìjǐ de yīngyǔ hái bùcuò,
找到这份工作之后,自认为自己的英语还不错,
Because when I got this job, I thought my English was not bad,

00:07:05,500 –> 00:07:12,291
Yěyǒu yī fèn wěndìng de gōngzuò, suǒyǐ hái shì tǐng mǎnzú yú xiànzhuàng de.
也有一份稳定的工作,所以还是挺满足于现状的。
and the job provided me a stable income, so I felt maybe a little bit too comfortable.

00:07:13,958 –> 00:07:17,291
Yuánlái nà zhǒng zǎoqǐ bèi dāncí,
原来那种早起背单词,
For example, before I had the motivation to get up early and memorize vocabulary,

00:07:17,291 –> 00:07:21,791
Zài lùshàng fēngkuáng de gēn zìjǐ jiǎng yīngyǔ de nà zhǒng zhuàngtài,
在路上疯狂地跟自己讲英语的那种的状态.
and I was really crazy practicing English, for example, walking on the street, talking to myself in English.

00:07:21,791 –> 00:07:24,458
nà zhǒng dònglì zǎo jiù méiyǒule!
那种动力早就没有了!
All this motivation was gone!

00:07:25,416 –> 00:07:27,750
Suǒyǐ, zòng shàng suǒ shù,
所以,综上所述,
In summary,

00:07:28,416 –> 00:07:32,625
Wǒ juédé, běnzhe wèi zìjǐ fùzé de tàidù,
我觉得,本着为自己负责的态度,
I think, to be responsible to myself,

00:07:32,625 –> 00:07:34,958
Wǒ zǎo jiù yīnggāi chèle!
我早就应该撤了!
I should have left earlier!

00:07:34,958 –> 00:07:37,666
Hǎole, zhè xià wǒ cízhíle
好了,这下我辞职了
Now that quit my job

00:07:37,666 –> 00:07:42,291
Wǒ yǒu dà bǎ de shíjiān xuéxí chōngdiàn
我有大把的时间学习充电
I have a ton of time to study

00:07:42,291 –> 00:07:49,125
Yě nénggòu gěi dàjiā zhìzuò gèng duō de shìpín. A ~ wǒ hěn kāixīn!
也能够给大家制作更多的视频。啊~ 我很开心!
also I can make more videos for you. I am very happy!

00:07:51,166 –> 00:07:57,291
Zhìshǎo nǐmen háishì xīnshǎng wǒ de shìpín de, duì ba?
至少你们还是欣赏我的视频的,对吧?
At least you guys appreciate my videos, right?

00:07:58,375 –> 00:08:02,291
Wǒ méi zìyǐwéishì ba! Nǐmen yīnggāi shì xǐhuān wǒ de ba?!
