In today's world, children ,as young social individuals can't protect themselves as much as adults. Therefore, they have been faced with many difficulties in their lives such as abuse, illiteracy or violence. Especially in this decade, violence against children is poisoning children's bright future, so it is necessary for us to analyze the causes of violence on children such as living conditions, prior victimization and psychological problems.
First of all, many people, mostly parents hurt children owing to their poor living conditions.Poverty makes them feel weak and also make them look someone as the responsible of their poverty. For example,while a family has serious financial problems, they start to feel stressed. Consequently, when they get mad, they can easily hurt their children as an anger reaction, whereas, their children are innocent.
Secondly, prior victimization in children'slives lead to violence against them. If a child was suffering from abuse or bullying,he can easily be a target of violence. For instance, people who have mental problems usually got abused by adults in their childhood. These damages made them open to any assault.
Finally, low self-worth as a characteristic feature is a reason for low self-esteem and someone who has low self-esteem feels like he has to take it out on children. As a result, once again children have to encounter violence as victims. What is more, drug or alcohol abuse are also reasons of inflicting violence on children. These bad habits make people lose their self-control and hurt kids.
In brief, we should consider that poor living conditions, abuse, bullying or psychological problems as the source of violence against children and we should try to find out how can we prevent the violence. Because, if we don't do anything to prvent this violence, there will be more bad consequences for our…...

Factors Affecting Students Performance in English

...Australasian Journal of Educational Technology 2009, 25(5), 645-665 Factors affecting the way students collaborate in a wiki for English language learning Vida Zorko University of Ljubljana Wikis are believed to be a powerful tool assisting the development of constructivist learning environments, as their very nature supports collaboration. However, not much research has been done into the types of collaborative interaction that take place in wikis when used for learning. The main purpose of this study is to explore the factors that affect the ways students collaborate in the wiki environment. To this end, a qualitative exploration of students’ perceptions of collaboration in the wiki was carried out among sociology students at university level who used this environment in blended, problem based learning as part of their English for Specific Purposes course. The research shows that the wiki promoted many collaborative behaviours among students, such as learning from each other and communicating with the teacher. However, the data indicate that the wiki was less successful in facilitating other types of collaboration, such as communicating with peers and co-constructing products, primarily because the students had the opportunity to collaborate in live meetings and preferred to use Messenger and email to communicate. Overall, the results obtained here confirm that the wiki can be used to enhance effective collaboration in a constructivist approach to......

...particularly strong in languages, participating in different competitions, aimed at checking English-language knowledge. At such contests, I was one of the top three students in my native city –Abovyan. During my school years I was appointed to be the monitor of the class due to my responsibility, leader qualities, good organizational skills, ability to work in team, and good relations with teachers, classmates. Now I am a student in the university after V. Brusov. The main subject of my studies was linguistics. I also study foreign languages. My first language is English. I study also Hindi and German. I have taken part many programs and competitions. Studying four years I have discovered a passion for languages, I enjoyed my English classes, in particular my Linguistics classes, and even though they were very general I found those topics relating to human languages extremely exciting. For instance, I realized that the study of Linguistics goes beyond understanding the structure of language, I came to realize that this would help to understand how the unconscious knowledge that humans have about languages works, and how languages differ from each other. I was particularly attracted to your Linguist position because of the job description of the languages used in your company. I am fluent and have excellent command of the following languages-which matches your job requirements perfectly: English and German. I believe I would be a good candidate for the position of Linguist......

Teaching Methods of Translation Toward English Major Students

...Methods of Translation toward English Major Students Xiyue Bai 201020383 Foreign Language Department Northwest University Abstract Based on modern educational theories and the foundation of the combination of task-based teaching approach and cooperative learning, this paper focuses on converse thinking mode and open teaching method in teaching translation course. The reversed thinking mode would help to avoid the phenomenon of theory disengages practice and it stresses practicalness. The application of open teaching method will also be discussed in the case of teaching fundamental translation course. Open translation teaching method is student-centered, leading by teacher, which emphasizes that students find, search and solve issues by themselves and helps students with their translation skills and creativity. Key Words: Translation, Reversed thinking, Open mode, Teaching I. Current Chinese Translation Course Teaching Status As is well-known in China that there are no translation courses for lower grade English major students in Chinese colleges until they enter into junior year or senior year. For some colleges with only two credit hours in one week. It’s unlikely for the teachers to finish the course completely in such a short time if they need to introduce basic concepts of translation, home and abroad translation histories and theories, to make the students be familiar with basic......

Why Filipinos/ Students Have a Hard Time Speaking English?”

...A. INTRODUCTION 1. Background of the Research Why Filipinos Have a Hard Time Speaking English? In the Philippines, the English Language has been selling like an old flavor of ice-cream and has been served repeatedly to millions of students in all the schools for the past decades. Most of us actually have tried this 'ice cream' but not everyone had liked it. These schools though, exerted a conscious effort on how to smoothly deliver this subject matter to every student. Like ice-cream makers, public schools claim that they have already mastered this overwhelming 'ice-cream-making' process. While private schools brag that theirs is 'yummier', since they are now putting some 'cherries on top'. But after all, why still most of the Filipinos can't speak English better or they having a hard time on it? 2. Statement of the Problem Speaking in English is not our lingua franca (mother tongue). It means that English is not our first language. And we, Filipinos find it difficult to speak English during a certain speech in a formal gathering or those students who have this English Zone Policy in their respective school, colleges, and states/universities. There are lots of Filipinos who are not that good in speaking in English and are trying hard to express themselves in English. I recognize that learning to speak and write in English in this age of globalization is necessary especially if we would like to be able to compete in the knowledge-based world. Such......

Factors Affecting First Year English Students Reading Comprehention

...Chapter One: Introduction 1.1 Background of the Study In today’s global world, the importance of English cannot be denied and ignored since English is the most common language spoken everywhere. Besides, English is a widely studied foreign language (Richards & Rodgers: 1995). So English is learned not only as a single language but also as a key medium of instruction to decide upon the students’ further life to be competent enough to cope with the 21century(Genenen: 2011). In the EFL context, language learning is seen as a process that requires opportunities for learners to participate in communication where making meaning is a primary goal. Reading is one of the language skills which students need to develop and the most important of all the four language skills. Students’ academic success and their language proficiency depend largely on their ability to read and comprehend the textbook and notes they receive in different subjects (Getachew: 1996). Though reading is not the only skill to be taught in the language classroom, it is definitely the most important for many ESL/EFL learners (Grabe2002). So, reading in a second or foreign language setting continues to have an increasingly important role. Traditionally, reading comprehension lessons have centered on a passage of text followed by questions. But the questions were usually designed to find out whether the students had understood, rather than to facilitate understanding. In other words, they were devices for......

...Kevin Halligan’s  poem “ The Cockroach” should be read on two levels: literal and figurative.  The poem has fifteen lines with a set rhyme scheme of every other line rhyming—ABABCDCD. The point of view is first person with the poet as the speaker. The literal meaning is a realistic scene of the speaker watching a huge cockroach crossing the floor of the house.  The speaker is intrigued and examines the movement of the insect.  The roach avoids a dust bunny by sidestepping around it. As it crossed the floor, it follows a path probably previous covered.  The roach begins to move quicker in circles and acts oddly.  It flips over as if to scratch its wings.  Something was affecting the bug because it seems to be having an attack which causes it be uncertain and erratic in its movements. Finally, it climbed up on a shelf and ceased to move.  No longer did it appear to know what to do.  Was it being punished for something that it had done? While the speaker watched the insect, he felt as though he saw himself in its actions. It looked clear about what to do next. He looked uncertain where to go. Was this due payment for some vicious crime A former life had led to? I don’t know Except I thought I recognised myself. On a deeper, figurative level, the poem can be read as an extended metaphor for the life of the speaker or possibly the human race in general. The roach is large which indicates an unusual insect.  Is it large because it is large for the species or just large......

URBI March, 2015 Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction Social Studies play a very important role in the modernization of mankind. It is therefore that students should acquire sufficient knowledge on it. Over the past years, social studies as a subject, educators have noted that students in many schools in the Philippines are still considered low in their achievements. Empirical studies like the Ramos, R. Survey (1980) show that there has been deterioration in the students’ achievement because of the focus in dealing with the subject social studies. The Ramos, R Survey by a group of Filipinos researchers found that pupils in elementary Sibika at Kultura in 1979 are more behind, and the high school students of Araling Panlipunan are years behind their counterparts in history of mankind, early civilization, government, taxation and economics in dealing with reasoning as a logic and explaining through what is happened to connect to the present times.

Alimpolos Nicole Mae C. Barba Erdy T. Picones May 2016 Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction Education is a bridge from misery to hope. It is a tool for daily life in modern society. It is a bulwark against poverty, a platform for democratization, and a vehicle for the promotion of cultural and national identity. For everyone, everywhere, education is the road to human progress and the means through which every man; woman and child can realize his or her full potential. Teachers impart their knowledge by transmitting information through communication. Teachers will do a better job if they communicate well with their students. As stated in the 1987 constitution, Article XIV, section 7 which provide that: “For purpose of communication and instruction, the official languages of the Philippines are Filipino, until otherwise provided by law, English” Communication is a complex process, any stage of this process; things may go wrong, making the communication less effective.

...English and Vietnamese Vowels 0 Running head: ENGLISH AND VIETNAMESE VOWELS Vowels in English and Vietnamese: A Contrastive Analysis Chu Thi Thuy Tien Class: 4C.06 University of Education English and Vietnamese Vowels 1 Abstract Pronunciation is a problem which usually occurs to Vietnamese learners of English. Many learners have difficulty pronouncing English sounds, therefore; they have difficulty in listening and speaking English. While these two skills are very important for students when they begin to work in an environment using English, students need to be aware of the errors in their pronunciation. This paper aims to contrast vowels in Vietnamese and in English. From this analysis, some similarities and differences can be drawn between the two languages. Then some teaching implications will be presented. The teaching implications will help learners to correct their pronunciation and also help them improve other skills. I will divide my paper into three parts. Firstly, I will describe vowels in Vietnamese and then in English. Secondly, I will contrast these two systems through two aspects: positions and manners of articulation of vowels to find out similarities and differences between them. And lastly, I will discuss some implications for teaching language. English and Vietnamese Vowels 2 Vowels in English and Vietnamese What is a vowel? We will find that it is not easy to define exactly what it means. According to Oxford Advanced Learner’s dictionary,...
