World series Part 3 – Megan from South Africa 環球系列第三集 -來自南非的梅根

Hi!!

My name is Megan! I’m from South Africa. I have been living in Hong Kong for one month now.

你好! 我的名字是MEGAN (梅根). 我來自南非. 我已在香港居住了一個月

About South Africa:
South Africa is nick-named the ‘Rainbow Nation’ because our population is made up of people from all around the world. We have many different cultures influencing the development of the nation … which means the food is awesome!

有關南非:
南非的花名是彩虹國度因為我國的人民是由世界各地而來. 我們有不同的文化影響國家的發展… 這代表有美食不斷!

South Africa is home to some of the worlds most unique animals. The largest bird – the ostrich, the largest mammal – the elephant, the tallest creature – the giraffe, the largest fish – the whale shark, the fastest land animal – the cheetah and the largest reptile – the leatherback turtle.

南非是世界上最特別動物的家, 如:世界上最大的鳥–駝鳥; 最大的哺乳動物–大象;  最高的動物– 長頸鹿; 最大的魚– 鯨鯊; 陸上最快的動物–獵豹; 最大的爬蟲類–梭龜.

Something else interesting about South Africa is that Appletiser fruit juice was first squeezed there in 1965

有一個有趣的南非冷知識. 在1965 年, 南非生產了第一枝 Appletiser 汽水..

I love Hong Kong because of the energy of Hong Kong.The people are loud and honest and are always very ambitious.

我愛香港因為香港有無盡的精力. 香港人的熱鬧, 誠實和雄心勃勃最為我欣賞.

I joined Language Exchange when I first moved to Hong Kong on recommendation by my friends.
Apart from every lesson being different and extremely fun, I love Language Exchange because it has given me more confidence. I have also made many new friends and my Hong Kong network has grown so much.

在朋友推薦下, 當我移居到香港後就立即參力了語言交換. 除了在每節課都有不同而有趣的討論題目外, 我愛參加語言交換是因為我在這裡能提升自信心. 我亦在這裡認識了不同的朋友及令我的社交圈子擴大.

If you would like to have fun, make new international friends and practice languages, come along to Language Exchange Hong Kong! It’s fun, free and there is no sign up or registration required.
To find out more about Language Exchange, please check our social media or email us a lexhongkong@gmail.com

如果你想玩得開心, 認識外國朋友, 和練習你的語言技巧, 你就應該參加語言交換. 想知多點語言交換的資料, 請查詢我們的社交謀體.

4 Keys to Great Nonverbal Communication

Do you know that much of what you communicate doesn’t come out of your mouth? What does come out of your mouth is very much affected and influenced by your outward appearance, posture and facial expressions.

Check out some helpful tips below!
1. Eye contact.  Make eye contact with the person or people you are talking to.  This shows people you are interested in what they are saying and you are listening well.

2. Voice fluctuation.  No one enjoys listening to someone who speaks in a monotone, it gets boring very quickly. Your tone of voice communicates to others about how you feel about what you are saying.

3. Facial expressions.  Are you interested in what you are saying? Use a variety of enthusiastic facial expressions when you speak.

4. Hand gestures. Have open hands, this shows you are open and honest.

Language Exchange Career Seminar was great!

Language Exchange Hong Kong had it’s first ever Career Seminar on June 14th. It was great! We had business man Alex Worsteling come from Tokyo, Japan.

Alex spoke in 3 sessions and talked about how we can identify our dream job , building our perfect resume and the last session was for young entrepreneurs and professionals who want to start something new in business.

It was really great to hear from someone who has had so much experience in the business world, and to be encouraged by Alex in a strong, positive way.

Many people came to the seminar, some were business people, others  were recent graduates who are just beginning their career and also some students joined to  get some good advice for building their careers after they graduate. Alex encouraged everyone  that by broadening  and strengthening your skill set, you can be an even greater asset to your boss. One way to do this is to come along to Language Exchange Hong Kong. Not only  will you have the opportunity to practice different languages, but you can also improve your people skills and cross cultural communication.
