Don't insist on English! 別堅持說英語!

Patricia Ryan: Don't insist on English! 別堅持說英語!

在TED Talk,資深的英語老師Patricia Ryan問了一個發人深省的問題 :這個世界獨尊英語, 是否會阻礙其他語言傳播優秀的想法?(例如:假如愛因斯坦需要通過托福考試?)這是一場捍衛翻譯和分享想法的熱情演說。

At TED Talk, longtime English teacher Patricia Ryan asks a provocative question: Is the world's focus on English preventing the spread of great ideas in other languages? (For instance: what if Einstein had to pass the TOEFL?) It's a passionate defense of translating and sharing ideas.

Patricia Ryan has spent the past three-plus decades teaching English in Arabic countries -- where she has seen vast cultural (and linguistic) change.
