原來這句英文,可以提升快樂能量!

fb_20170224_tlogan渥茲華英語的Logan老師,提出了一個很有意思的問題:「如何能得到快樂?」他常在課堂上這樣問學生們,有些人回答:快樂是有一雙酷炫新鞋!快樂是聽一首喜愛的歌曲!嗯~這些答案都很不錯!不過,科學家有另一番見解喔!你知道答案是什麼嗎?快跟著Logan老師一起這樣做,加入快樂的行列吧!

Teacher Logan:What makes you happy? This is a question I often like to ask my students to get a better understanding of who they are and what interests them. Answers can range from getting a new pair of shoes to listening to their favorite song. All answers are great but scientists say there is one thing that makes us the happiest. Think you know the answer? Participate in the activities below and see if what scientists say can make YOU happy.

在開始之前,先幫自己評分一下吧?1分是不快樂,10分是很快樂!

Teacher Logan:Before we start, let’s get an idea of how happy you are now. Rate your happiness on a scale of one to ten. One is not happy at all and ten is completely happy.

接下來,你可以點閱下方連結的這段短片,影片中科學家將會告訴你快樂的秘訣是什麼喔…先等等!在看影片之前,你可以預先猜測一下!另外,可以在設定中把字幕功能打開,就能輕鬆收看影片了!

Teacher Logan:Next, watch this short video. The video will tell you what scientists believe is the secret to happiness. Before you watch, make a prediction of what you think the secret is. Also, don’t forget to turn on the subtitles if you are having some trouble understanding. Enjoy!

你猜對了嗎?讚喔!在Logan老師四年的英語教學生涯中,只有一位學生猜對!

Teacher Logan:Did you guess correctly? If so, great job! Only one of my students has made the correct prediction in my four years of teaching.

現在,你知道快樂的關鍵是什麼了吧?該是身體力行的時候了!想想誰對你來說很重要,甚至影響了你一生呢?藉此機會整理一下思緒,用Logan老師教你的這9句英語,傳遞感激及謝意!

Teacher Logan:Now that you know the key to happiness, it’s time to take that knowledge and put it to use. Take some time now to think of someone who is very important and influential in your life. Think of what you would like to say to them and what you would like to thank them for. Here are a few phrases in English you can use to show thanks and gratitude.

  • Thank you.

  • Thanks a bunch.

  • Thank you so much for…

  • Thank you very much for…

  • Thanks a lot for…

  • Many thanks for…

  • I’d like to thank you for…

  • I can’t thank you enough for…

  • I really appreciate your help with…

既然你已經知道如何表達感謝之意了,快寫下短文,完成之後,打個電話給那位你認為很重要、並且影響你很深的「重要人士」,說出你內心的真正感受吧!

Teacher Logan:Now that you know some phrases to show thanks, write down a short letter to the person who is most important and influential in your life. After you finish writing your letter, call the person you wrote about and read your letter.

有覺得快樂指數提升了嗎?自己評估一下吧!有變高的,請舉手!

Teacher Logan:How do you feel now? Are you happier? Take some time and rate your happiness. Is it higher than before?

散播快樂似乎是件難事,但其實就是一句「金多謝~」那樣簡單!下次如果有人遞了一杯咖啡給你,或是幫你把門打開,別忘了微笑並且說聲「Thanks.」,雙方都會有美好的一天!

Spreading happiness can seem difficult but it is as simple as saying “thank you.” Next time you get a coffee or someone opens a door for you, don’t forget to give a smile and say “thanks.” Not only will it make their day better but it will improve yours too.
