Erika Hughes and the Well Mannered Band

I'm honored to be permitted to share Erika Hughes and the Well Mannered Band's newest video link with you.  If you want to hear true Americana music, you will enjoy her band.  Erika style blends Americana Blue Grass with rock and roll and folk.  She writes her own songs.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Erika since she was a baby. (She is the daughter of one of my oldest friends.)  What an incredible talent!

大家好,我叫杨宏朝。一年前,我来到美国丹佛大学读书,我的专业是房地产和建筑管理专业。

初来乍到,语言基本上是大多数留学生的障碍。课堂上听教授讲课,一知半解;生活中虽然对英语要求没那么严格,但是也是稀里糊涂。

TheresaPeter是一对美国夫妇,是我们真正的朋友。一年以来,在生活和学习上寄予了我们很大的帮助。学习上主要是专业名词的障碍:Theresa把专业课上设计的名词整理好打印出来,每周到学校给我们讲解。涉及到建筑材料的内容会给我们带来实物,有时会带我们去工地现场参观。在她们的帮助下,我们很快的客服了语言上的障碍,考试成绩也不比母语学生差。

生活上,他们就像自己父母一样基于我们无微不至的帮助。夫妻两个在家里办国际学生party,每次都会邀请到我们参加。在这些party上我们也认识到很多人,他们来自世界各地。此外,他们非常了解和尊重中国文化。去年春节,我们在家里过年邀请到了TheresaPeter,他们身着传统的中国红,营造了浓厚的春节的气氛和家的温暖。

总之,在过去的一年里,点点滴滴我们逐渐的建立了深厚的友情。TheresaPeter是我们真正的朋友,给予我们极大地帮助。

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

Hello, my name is Hongchao Yang. One year ago, I came to University of Denver. My major is RECM.

At the beginning, language is the main problems for most of Chinese students. In class, we cannot understand what the professors are talking about. Although English is not so strict in our daily life, it is also a barrier for us to communicate with others clearly and efficiently.

Theresa and Peter are an American couple. They are our friends. In the past year, they helped us a lot on our study and life. As for study, terminology is the major problem: Theresa collected all the terminology related to our major and printed them out. Each week, she came to our school and explained words and sentences. In construction class, she would bring some Real Materials to help us understand some terms. Sometimes, she would drive us to the construction site. With their help, our language improved fast, and we can do better in our class, even as good as native students.

In our life, they are like our parents, taking care of us carefully. They often hold international parties in their own house. Every time, they would invite us to their parties. We met plenty of friends on these parties. These friends are from different countries. What’s more, Theresa and Peter know and respect our Chinese cultures. I remembered that last Chinese Spring Festival. We invited them come to our apartment and celebrate together. Theresa and Peter were in Chinese Red, which builds a great environment of Spring Festival and the warmness of Family.
