Beauty and the Beast (Chapter 5-6)

The weeks passed and Bella grew fond of the beast. She began to look forward to his visits and they became friends.
 
She saw that he was often sad. He spent a lot of time in his garden, gazing at his flowers and sighing. Once, she saw a tear slip down his face.
 
Bella was sad too. “I miss my family,” she told the beast. The beast gave her a gift. “This is a magic mirror,” he told her. “Say what you want to see and the mirror will show you.”
 
Bella gazed in the mirror: “Mirror, mirror show me clear, Please show me my family dear.”
“Oh!” gasped Bella. “My father is ill! Let me go to him,” she begged. The beast could not bear to see Bella so unhappy. So he let her go. As she left, he said, “If you want to return here, use the magic mirror.”
 
Sadly, he watched her leave. Now he would be alone forever.
 
When the merchant saw his daughter returning, his spirits rose. From that day on he grew stronger until he was perfectly well. Summer was fading now. The days grew chilly. Petals and leaves began to fall.
 
“I wonder what the beast’s garden is like now,” thought Bella. She looked into her magic mirror and said: “Mirror, mirror show me, please, The lovely roses and the trees.”
 
To her horror, Bella saw the poor beast was lying by the rose bushes. All around him petals fell. The roses were fading away and dying. And so was he. It was then that Bella realised how much she cared for him.
 
Quick as a wink, Bella stepped into the mirror and ran to the beast’s side. “Oh Beast, my beast!” she cried. “Do not die! I would miss you! Please stay here with me!” A tear ran down her face and fell onto the beast’s dusty fur.
 
The tear glistened on his fur and the beast opened his eyes. Another tear ran down Bella’s face and as it fell, it sparkled in the light. Tear after tear fell. With each droplet the beast revived, just as a wilting rose will revive when you water it.
 
The beast sat up and rubbed his eyes. “You really care for me!” he said. “Someone as beautiful as you can care for someone as ugly as I am!”
 
Then there was a flash! In place of the ugly beast stood a handsome prince.
 
At first Bella didn’t understand. “You monster!” she shouted at the Prince. “What have you done with my lovely beast?”
 
But then the Prince told Bella the whole story. It was a long story of promises broken and promises kept, of beauty and ugliness and of love and kindness. Bella understood. “We have learned a lesson,” she said. “We must never judge anyone by how they look.” And so, of course, they both lived happily ever after.


学员印象

甄紫宸同学刚刚来到录音棚,表现出非常乖巧和安静,就是这样一个小女孩,获得了打卡期间语音被精选次数最多的成绩,确实有着相当不错的功底。毕竟,在E PLUS北外壹佳英语学习四年半,每周都能坚持阅读,绝非易事。有没有对她要读的《美女与野兽》有一些小期待呢!

21天阅读打卡中有哪些故事?
紫宸妈妈:听校区老师讲,这次阅读打卡有走进录音棚的机会,孩子非常激动,回家就开始第一天的阅读打卡。可离打卡结束只有21天了,看到其他孩子已经读了9天,我们的积分排名已经很靠后了,我根本没抱什么希望,只希望孩子能坚持阅读,看她为了自己小小的梦想认真地坚持,让我很是感动,无论结果如何,我想坚持阅读就是最大的收获。
后来发现孩子的打卡记录屡屡被选为精选内容,让我们很是开心,孩子阅读的积极性也更加高涨了。当得知自己是精选次数最多的宝贝时,孩子异常兴奋。这次作为精选榜代表参加音频录制,又实现了人生一个小小的梦想,感谢E PLUS北外壹佳英语这个平台,让孩子有了展示自己机会。

为了录音做了哪些准备?
紫宸妈妈:孩子已经是第二次走进录音棚了,但录制自己的专属节目还是第一次。《丽声经典故事屋》是孩子之前读得很熟的一套故事书,但为了这次录音,孩子还是再一次拿起了点读笔认真练习、模仿。外研通点读笔一直是她的好伙伴,孩子不仅学她的语音、语调,还尝试着绘声绘色地讲故事。

孩子参与录音后有哪些收获呢?
紫宸妈妈:孩子在录音时,发现平时读得很熟练的单词或句子,在老师的检查下,却依然出现了一些小毛病。这让孩子明白了,英语学习要精艺求精,不能看大概是什么,一个小小的字母,就能改变一个单词读音、一个句子的意思。精准的发音,会让人听着很舒服、很美。我想这也是孩子的一大收获吧,对她今后的英语学习一定会有帮助。

孩子有哪些好的阅读习惯?

紫宸妈妈:学习英语没有捷径只能靠积累。孩子能够在这次活动中表现突出,也离不开平时的努力。在E PLUS北外壹佳英语学习的四年半中,孩子在老师的引导下,每周坚持课外阅读。“丽声”系列的书籍,全都读过,有些小故事还能很熟练地背诵。的确像曹文老师讲的“阅读是金”,阅读给孩子带来的好处,不言而喻。让孩子爱上阅读、坚持阅读!收获的一定是成功!
