在網路上偶然看到有人介紹Akeela and the Bee這部電影，就跑去借來看，剛剛終於看完了。呼！真好看！屬於勵志感人的小品，而且這部片還傳達了一個學英文重要的觀念，那就是，背單字利用字根字首可以幫助記憶。這點也是之前我在教學時跟學生強調過的。以前的學習經驗是只要會唸得出來，我就可以拼出來，所以學單字一定要會唸才行。但是，這只是其中一個方法，利用字根字首也是可以幫助背單字呢！
Akeelah: [quoting Marianne Williamson]
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
電影主題曲：Definition of True Love (by Debrah Cox)
This I Believe
"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES."
