English Conversations with Cliff LMA004, LJILJANA w CLIFF #2.1

LJILJANA w CLIFF #2.1

So today, Liliana and I went a little off script. We didn't talk about any of the, getting to know you, uh, topics, but we talked about something that was, uh, important and meaningful to the both of us, which is writing. And she shared with me some of the anxiety that she has about, uh, presenting and writing in English and a drive to be perfect with it like a native speaker. Um, and I told her about some of the experiences that I've had, uh, training people who are not native speakers to write in English, professionally. And we talked about the importance of reading in the language that you're going to write. Um, and the practice of reading as a writer, which means paying attention, not only to the subject matter and the information in that written material, but also the way that the, that the text is written to pay attention to the language and the presentation as well.

And we wrapped it up with a lot of enthusiasm for the upcoming updates, um, that will be in written form. And I am very excited to see her growth. I have a really great feeling about where she's headed.

LJILJANA w CLIFF #2.1 LJILJANA mit KLIPPE #2.1

So today, Liliana and I went a little off script. We didn't talk about any of the, getting to know you, uh, topics, but we talked about something that was, uh, important and meaningful to the both of us, which is writing. Мы не говорили ни о каких темах знакомства с тобой, но мы говорили о том, что было важным и значимым для нас обоих, а именно о писательстве. And she shared with me some of the anxiety that she has about, uh, presenting and writing in English and a drive to be perfect with it like a native speaker. И она поделилась со мной некоторым беспокойством, которое она испытывает по поводу презентации и написания на английском языке, и стремлением сделать это идеально, как носитель языка. Um, and I told her about some of the experiences that I've had, uh, training people who are not native speakers to write in English, professionally. Мм, и я рассказал ей о некоторых случаях, которые у меня были, обучая людей, которые не являются носителями языка, профессионально писать на английском языке. And we talked about the importance of reading in the language that you're going to write. И мы говорили о важности чтения на том языке, на котором вы собираетесь писать. Um, and the practice of reading as a writer, which means paying attention, not only to the subject matter and the information in that written material, but also the way that the, that the text is written to pay attention to the language and the presentation as well. Хм, и практика чтения как писателя, что означает обращать внимание не только на предмет и информацию в этом письменном материале, но и на то, как написан текст, обращать внимание на язык и представление также.

And we wrapped it up with a lot of enthusiasm for the upcoming updates, um, that will be in written form. И мы завершили его с большим энтузиазмом по поводу предстоящих обновлений, гм, которые будут в письменной форме. And I am very excited to see her growth. И я очень рад видеть ее рост. I have a really great feeling about where she's headed. У меня прекрасное предчувствие по поводу того, куда она направляется.
