Last time we talked about the benefits of working from home.(Practice post #1: 英文练习帖1】What is the top benefit for you to work from home in China? Why?
)

However, everything has two sides.

So, what are the top struggles of working remotely for you? Why?

(If you are not working from home right now, you can still guess out the reason for it.)

The main struggle of working from home for me is loneness.
It's a common belief that a human being is a group animal.
We need to communicate and work with others face to face, and that makes us feel meaningful and joyful.

5 个月前chaizi

有学术写作的味道,扣题且严谨,后面用例子说明,很清晰。
注意首句的"loneness"有拼写错误,拼写的时候还是多注意下。
需要特别注意的是 “a group animal”,这里用 social animal比较合适。

Man is by nature a social animal.
——by Aristotle

能注意到human being的单复数是很好的,因为很多时候大家会把这个词和mankind或people的用法搞混,a human being/human beings是正确的用法,虽然它看起来像是指人类这个大类。这句话可以自己再修改一下。
最后一句没有问题,赞!

Honestly , working at home makes me feel more comfortable physically and less stressful mentally . At the same time ,the distraction during my working time comes along , which frustrates me sometimes. And the self-discipline becomes less easier than usual because of the totally free schedule. But I know i’m Not alone hahahaha

5 个月前chaizi

你的句子读起来很有韵律感,个人感觉是因为妥善使用了副词(但也要避免过度)连词,也考虑了长短句的搭配,这样会很丰富,棒呀~

下面是需要注意的地方:
表达句意的时候会有些赘余。这比较像是中文思维的问题。

At the same time, the distraction during my working time comes along,

“distraction”本身表达的意思是 “something that turns your attention away from something you want to concentrate on”, 直接说“the distraction sometimes frustrates me”似乎更简洁一些,而不再去提分心的事情“发生”的时候,毕竟词里其实隐含着一种动作。
(但从语法角度不能说是错的,以及每个人感受不同。这里只是说我的看法哈。)

the self-discipline becomes less easier

注意比较级的使用方法,"less"也表示程度,所以更常用的方式是"less easy",或者更直接一些比如"more difficult"。

最后说下副词使用的问题。最开始我提到用这些词可以让写作更丰富,但如果一个句子里重复使用过多或经常使用,可能会使文章显得不够简明。你可以考虑在使用副词修饰后在后面对句式进行变换。

And the self-discipline becomes less easier than usual because of the totally free schedule.

是不是可以考虑用自己做主语而把"self-discipline"词性变换一下。如:I become less self-disciplined because of the flexible schedule.

欢迎自己再写一遍~

Expression and communication may be the most challenging, it's an import thing that you should make everyone understand what you are talking about in the video conference, and you need to understand what others want to express

5 个月前chaizi

"the most challenging", "video conference"是个人觉得用得很好的词。
需要注意的地方有:

Expression and communication may be the most challenging, it's an import thing that...

建议"it's"大写另起一句,因为你后面是在解释首句,这样更清晰一些。以及仅是个人感受,读到"the most challenging"的时候断掉的句子让我有种突然憋了一口气的感觉,也许加上一个词比如"part"会更好些?而相对地,后一句的"thing"删掉感觉更简洁。

文段整体让我也有些中文思考表达的感觉。主要原因是从你的解释看,"expression"和"communication"的含义差不多,是不是可以考虑在句首直接用"communication",而在句尾点出"express"呢?

欢迎你再写一下整个文段~

For me the most important things is communication and culture. I have a cooperation experience with a foreign school,when I send a email to the school manager,can't express the work process and schedule.
It makes my feel bad.

5 个月前chaizi

欢迎来玩~"It makes me feel bad"用得不错,非常生活化~
需要注意一些单复数使用、冠词&不定冠词使用、句子缺主语以及两个完整句子之间没有连词连接的基础语法细节。

For me the most important++ things is ++ 【单复数】communication and culture.

I have a cooperation experience with a foreign ++school,when I send++【完整句子之间用句号隔开或使用连词】++ a email++【元音开头冠词用an】 to the school manager,can't 【句子缺主语且完整句子之间需要句号或连词连接】express the work 【working】 process and schedule【缺定冠词the】.

可以借助一些工具比如Grammarly先检查一下这些小错误噢~强烈建议你再写一遍这段话啦,加深印象。

i don't know the top struggle about remote work, because i don't have chance to experience it. btw i really feel struggle about office work. the damn transport between home and office, and the depress air of workplace. in a word, it's really not feel free.

5 个月前chaizi

Please replace all "i"s to "I". That's the only way to represent "我" as a subject(主语).
以及句号后的首词首字母要大写,是不是受了coding的影响才习惯小写的呢?强烈建议使用语法工具先检测一些基础语法错误呀。

++i ++really feel struggle【a feeling of struggle or feel struggled/struggling】 about office work【建议使用of being an office worker】. ++the++ damn【蛮好的尝试,表达了强烈的厌恶适合非正式场合/写作】 transport between home and office【my home and my/the office】,

and the depress【depressing】air of workplace. ++in++ a word, i++t's really not feel++ free【it 作主语助动词用does,完整句子之间句号隔开或使用连词】.

强烈建议再写一遍噢

I don't have any experience wording remotely,But I think it's a team communication problem.

I don't have any experience wording[working注意拼写】 remotely**,【英文句子逗号后要多一个空格,比如You, and me] But【用小写but,逗号后面的句子不需要大写】

I think it's a team communication problem.

【这句写的很好,用了I think + 从句,也可以这么顺一下表达:but I think communication problem can be a big struggle beyond the team. 原因:英文表达的逻辑:先说最重要的,再补充其他条件,比如,先说中心句‘沟通是问题’,再补充‘是团队里会出现的问题】

鼓励你根据建议重新(抄)写一遍印象更深哦!

How to make effetive communication and initiative work

英文核心表达其实就两个:
【什么】【是】【什么】+ 时间地点对象等补充
or
【什么】【做】【什么】+时间地点对象等补充

你这里,是第一种情况,那就建议补充完整:
【How to make effetive [effective注意拼写] communication and initiative work]/什么】【is/是】 【the top struggle/什么】 【for me 补充】

鼓励你根据建议重新(抄)写一遍印象更深哦!

I have no exp for remote work, but i think self-discipline
and communicate is the most problem for this.
Everything has two sides,May also have some benefits such as freedom.

I have no exp【单词补充完整哈】 for remote work【for后面用动名词,work要加ing】, but i 【用大写!】think self-discipline
and communicate【这是动词,用名词communication】 is 【自律和沟通是两个东西,用复数are】the most problem 【可以很“懒”的直接套原文的表达:top struggles】for this.

Everything has two sides,May also have some benefits such as freedom.【这句表达很不错!】

The top struggle of working remote for me is the communication that is poor efficiency.

The top struggle of working remote 【remote是个动词,接在工作后应该是一个形容词模式,用remotely】for me is the communication that is 【that可以用with代替,再删掉is】poor efficiency.

I have experienced remote work for 2+ months because of the pandemic, and I realize that as a programmer, working remotely can totally work. This is why I joined this community and trying to discover some possibilities.

Great expressions! Keep going with the good work!

When I work from home, there is a mysterious force that pulls me back to my bed. The force is so powerful that I always lose. It must come from Sith. Where is my lightsaber.....

5 个月前chaizi

A hilarious one, but I doubt that ;)
Normally we say "lose something", so maybe try "surrender" instead.

I like working from home crazily. But I will feel a little bit lonely after working remotely for three months.

5 个月前chaizi

这里要注意"crazy"的用法。如果你想表达的是狂热或热切,那需要使用"crazy about"或"...like crazy"。后一句的时态有些微妙,需要体会一下。比如如果你用"will"那更像一种情况假设,所以"after"改成"if"更好;如果你表达的是已经发生的事情,那"will"去掉改成过去时比较好。
欢迎你再写写看~

I think self-discipline should be one of them, But loneliness should be the biggest problem after a long time.

5 个月前Hans英毅

总的来说没有语法问题,只是在语感上,有些地方在英文中不太常见。
譬如should be感觉用may be 会更加自然些。
But 的转折关系不大,and 似乎更合适些。

可能我会这么写,看看是否读起来舒服些?
I think one of the problems may be that we need self-discipline, and loneliness may be the biggest problem after a long while.

The top struggle of working remote for me is working slowly.
I have worked at home more than 15 months, there are too many things to grab my attention. like BBC news, wechat messages. And sometimes I have to waiting for an answer, it's hard to schedule my time to focus on coding.

5 个月前Hans英毅

1.“working remote”中remote应为副词哦。
2.“worked at home more than..”应为worked at home for more than...
3. ", there are"应为“.There are”。
4.“. like”应为“.Like” "wechat" 应为"WeChat"
5. "have to waiting" 应为“have to wait”
6. ", it's"应为".It's"
欢迎按照修改意见,重新写一次喔!

The top struggles of working remotely for me is that my skills are not adequate for a challenging job.

Because I haven't been learning programming for a long time, my experience is not enough to support the development of some large projects.

When I work remotely, I must keep in touch with all my classmates and reply them in 10 minutes. And actually, we usually spend more time on oir jobs.

5 个月前Hans英毅

1.“reply them”应为"reply to", 或者直接用 reply in 10 minutes 即可。
2. on oir jobs这里有拼写错误哦!

欢迎按照意见再写一次,这样可以加深理解喔!

I had worked remotely during this February when the pandemic prevented us from going office. I think the top struggle for me is how to arrange the time. I had two kids at home then and I was interrupted thousands of times a day ! However, after a few days I can manage. I worked when the kids were asleep or played with themselves. The kids also began to understand their mother needed to work to earn the bread.It was challenging but I’d rather work at home because I can look after the kids by myself while work as an outstanding engineer.

5 个月前Hans英毅

首句用了过去完成时,感觉不错喔! earn the bread 感觉也很有趣!

语法上:
“ by myself while work as an outstanding engineer.”这里应该为" working as"
“after a few days I can manage”再加一个it会更流畅些: after a few days, I can manage it.

而在句子之间适当加一些连词和副词,会让文章更加富有逻辑和流畅,譬如加上only, gradually, still的效果
" I only worked when the kids were asleep or playing with themselves. Gradually, the kids began to understand their mother needed to work to earn the bread. It was challenging still, but I'd rather work at home...”

I just say that would be loneliness from working and social communication.

Remote work need more focus and you must find a way to balance your relationship around your best friends and your family, and the most difficult part: your life partner. Generally you can only rely on yourself about this. It seems that you have a lot time round them, but we all know you need everyone to understand that 'you are now working and you can not be distracted'.

So go killing loneliness and find your 'art style' of remote work :)

Communication and lack of in person engagement with folks in the team are definitely on the top of my list. Distraction comes next. And finally, promoting a wide spread of remote opportunities among teams without a well established remote policy does more harm than good to the organization.
