The class for early risers

Updated: Mar 27

[Chinese class at 7:30 in the morning]

After many years, I am putting on the identification again behaving as "Vender/ Chinese teacher" but not engineer this time.


Getting up early is never difficult for me,

As long as there is a task, getting up early is inertia.


However, comparing to those 8am classes in the university which always challenge the students at the beginning

(Even they always feel worthwhile later), this famous senior executive in the industry

really likes to have class before work starts.


For traffic jams that can be staggered in this time slot while keeping a whole morning time to use, I am also very glad to cooperate.


Successful people probably have some common characteristics, self-discipline, stable, gentle and polite, direct and accurate expression. These also make this morning class very enjoyable.


Even if the individual needs derived from different backgrounds push teachers to design customized courses, it is also the most interesting part of teaching although it is not easy. Especially for people like me, who don’t like to keep repeating inside box, these students with obvious

individual needs are truly the source of my inspiration and enthusiasm.


Seeing the student suddenly enlightened in class, receiving a cup of coffee of todat after class, I know I have had a beautiful morning!


[早上七點半的中文課]

事隔多年,再一次掛起識別證,

竟是「廠商/華語老師」的身分。


早起對我來說,從來不是難事,

只要有任務,早起到點是慣性。


然而相對於在大學裡早八的課,

一開始總是讓學生哀鴻遍野

(即便後來都覺得值得),

這位業界著名的高階主管

倒很喜歡在工作開始前上課。


對於可以錯開上下班的塞車時段,

同時保有一整個上午的時間運用,

我也非常樂意配合。


成功的人,大概都有一些共同的特質,

自律穩定,溫文有禮,表達直接準確。

這些也讓這堂晨課上起來非常愉快。


即便,不同背景衍生的個別化需求,

促使老師必須量身訂做地設計課程,

雖不省事,但也正是教學有趣之處。

尤其對於不喜歡重複照表操課的我來說,

這些個別需求明顯的學生,

正是我靈感與熱情的源頭活水。


看到學生上課時豁然開朗的模樣,

搭配下課後的束脩本日咖啡一杯,

這個早晨,非常美好!
