英文版介绍:Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag". In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard.

Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education and no one to intervene when one of Tara's older brothers became violent.

Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. She taught herself enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University, where she studied history, learning for the first time about important world events like the Holocaust and the civil rights movement. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to change it.

    真的是一个很好的机会。注册免费送一次,拍下来三次,一共四次课。课程的难度从普通简单对话到雅思part one不等,次的老师随机,课程可以在官网网页版修改。我已经安利了好多同学啦。耐心也好。学习的时候老师也是比较认真的在教,虽然是在网学习的,但是老师也会耐心的教。去学习了一下,感觉自己的口语提高了不少呢

    我前段时间偶然再商场逛街的时候一个小伙子给我发一张传单,上边写着英语,马上想起来外甥女的英语成绩一直不是特别好,于是跟孩子妈妈沟通了一下,孩子也表示愿意试试,结果一个月下来英语单词量大大的增加了,发音也越来越好了,现在马上期末考试了,就看今年最后一次考试成绩如何了,如果好的话明年还会继续再英语找辅导老师的。

    暑假越来越近了,希望在英语上的这三个月的辅导课能够考出一个好的成绩,儿子最让我不省心的就是英语成绩,关键的是我不会辅导,也没太多时间精力去看着,老师让我给孩子报的英语没办法自己也没主见。还是听老师的吧,如果考试成绩理想的话,我还会让儿子在英语继续学习

    儿子一直都再线下学习英语,但是老师跟我反映儿子的成绩很不稳定,时好时坏的,我也从中找过原因,但始终确定不下来到底因为什么,后来儿子跟我说,补习的老师总是忽略他,可能是他比较淘气的原因,后来发现了英语这种一对一的培训辅导,我就给他报了一个试听课程,儿子说非常喜欢,决心已定交钱,现在儿子的英语成绩稳定在全班前三名了,非常开心。
