1。 English Department主要偏重于英文寫作。
2。Modern Language and Literature Department主要是第二外語習得方面。對于我來說學習側重于英語教學法 TESOL, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.尤其感興趣的是在這個學院還可以選修拉丁語。目前我更傾向于第二個，也 是英語教學法。希望得到您的指點。 Shelley
第一，我也覺得第二個比較好，因為，在你們之后的一個班級中也有一位來自北師大的老師，她是給老外講漢語的那個學院。她告訴我說，我的教學方式和造詞理論在目前語言教學領域中屬于一 很先進的方法和理論（我沒有記住這個專業術語），只是許多教師停留在理論階段，而我雖然沒有接觸這 語言學理論，但我確實好像處于這 理論的實踐階段。因此，我的上課內容也許對您有所參考，您也許可以把這 理論和方法從語言專業的角度發揚光大。
第二，關于推薦信，我從來 沒有寫過。最重要的是，我不屬于語言教學的圈子，因此，我的外行話很難有所價值。我的建議是，您自己參考相關資料寫一篇推薦信，然后找您熟悉并且熟悉您業務能力的語言學教授簽字即可，國內留學生基本上都是這 作法。當然，也有一些公司專門做這項服務，只是那些公司是為不懂英語或者不懂國外教育背景的人服務的。祝一切順利！
Dear Dr. Liu,
In no longer than a month, i will be a freshman in one of the most famous and beautiful campus in Beijing, and hereby i am so appreciate that remarkable summer holidays we spent together in 2005, which surely changed my attitudes toward those seemingly stupid English words, just as you say in the textbook, now to gain the cognition of the world, to express the world: ).
But i have more exciting stories to share with you, i am now applying for American Universities after a month's preparation of both SAT-1 and SAT-2. those times were tough and painful, which makes me realized how much you should pay for your future success, yet i can tell you that my pain was somehow alleviated, but pity it didn't clear off...Tests are one thing, while application is another, another thing that is much, much more enduring than to take the test twice in the U.S.. And let me get this straight, i would like you to help me a bit with the recommendation work, at first i was thinking maybe you could write me a recommendation letter in the way my parents have suggested, but soon i changed my mind. There were so many students ever running into your life, how could you possibly remember them all? ( or maybe you will). And honestly speaking, few teachers in our school pays attention to the college application overseas, and therefore they always say they were too busy to help...(what? they will definitely be regretted if i ended up in Yale); However, that's the truth, so , as other freshmen applicants in China, i was trying to write the recommendation myself and bring them to the teacher instead...Yep, my headteacher was exceptional, she was the only one who helped me write a recommendation letter with enthusiasm, and this time, i was thinking if you could kindly help me with the translation work...The letter is not so long, yet moving and true. I don't wanna translate it myself because i have "intervened" so many recommendation letters. So, i would like to make this very real letter worth its while and therefore looking forward to your help.
what do you say?
i'd be so appreciate if you'd like to help with me, even only give me some instructions...and this appreciation will lead me to strengthen my drive, to go on fulfilling my dreams with almighty, to thanking you as one of my greatest teachers, which i surely felt when i struck that word in the vey first line of this email——Dear Dr. Liu.
I hope you enjoyed your summer holidays
第三， 咨詢一下相關的公司或者中介，他們都有專門的推薦信服務業務。原因如下：（1）：他們熟悉推薦信的格式和文體。一個寫詩歌的人并不一定能夠寫小說，而一個能寫小說的人往往寫不了領導的發言稿。（2）：他們熟悉相國國家的價值觀。一些中國學生自認為的優點并不一定 是外國學校承認的優點，而一些中國學校認為的缺點有可能 是國外學校承認的優點。
