many chinese students who have learned english for more than ten years are still unable to speak english fluently when they meet a foreigner. they seem to have mastered the basic language structure, but a conversation in english will make them feel uneasy. they are afraid that other people might find out their mistakes.
it is not uncommon that many students, who are bad speakers of english, can write english perfectly. this proves that they are not able to organize their ideas in english. the center of the problem is that they lack practice and confidence.
why should you be afraid? do you fear those foreigners with whom you are speaking? dont be shy, they will not laugh at you just for a small mistake you have made. the best way to get rid of this trouble is to learn to speak by speaking more. i am sure that constant practice will help you to succeed.
English is important and useful to us、 How can we learn it well? Here are my suggestions。
First, we should often listen to the tapes, English songs and programs、 Watching English movies is also helpful to us、 Second, we should speak English in class as much as possible、 Don’t be afraid of making mistakes、 The more you speak, the fewer mistakes you’ll make、 We'd better join the English club and practice with others、 Third, we can read more English newspapers and magazines、 It’s good for us、 At last, we should recite some good passages and keep diaries。
In a word, as long as we do more listening, speaking, reading and writing, we will learn English well。
At the beginning of the term, I made up my mind to learn English well in my plan. Then I carried out the plan full of determination. I stu-died as hard as I could,and so the days and weeks went by. Soon the time for the mid-term exam came. I went over my lessons in earnest,because Iexpected to get good marks. But to my surprise, I got a low mark of 73.I made quite a few grammar mistakes. Besides, I was unable to use some words or idioms correctly. I felt very sorry about it. I sat in the classroom in low spirits.
Knowing about it,my English teacher asked me to go to his of-fice and told me not to be so disappointed. He also told me to listen to the teacher attentively in class,to make notes while listening and to do more reading and writing,and that only in this way could I learn Eng-lish well.
What he said struck me greatly. I am determined to do as my tea-cher told me to. I'm sure I'll make some progress next time.
9月20日 星期五 雨这个学期刚开始，我就在计划中下定决心学好英语。然后我充满信心地执行计划。我尽可能的努力学习，日子就这样一天天过去了，马上期中考试就到了。我认真地复习了这门课，因为我期望取得好成绩，但令我吃惊的是，我只得了73分，我犯了很多语法错误。而且，我不能正确的使用一些词和词组，我感到很难过，我坐在教室里，情绪很低。
How to Learn English Well
English is one of the most important subjects in middle school.
Almost everyone knows that we should learn English well, but few of us know how to learn it well. Karl Marx has set a good example for us. He once said, "When one is learning a foreign language, he must use the foreign language." In this way, he could use several languages. A saying goes, "Practice makes perfect." When we learn English, we should read more, speak more, listen to English from time to time and practise writing every day. Don't be afraid of making mistakes. Only in this way can we learn it well.
The students in China start to learn English when they are in primary school. In many provinces, English are taught as second language. Some people may ask why we need to learn English, what we do that for? Well, in my humble opinion, I think we need English for various reasons.
First of all, English is indispensable if we want to enter the university. English teaching in some schools are quite important. Some teachers even use English instead of Chinese to teach their students. Secondly, most of students will need English to read English books or novels. While a few of them will go abroad to study, then English will become a tool to communicate with foreigners. Last but not least, as this world gets smaller, English has become more useful than ever. There are a lot of songs singing in English, if we know how to speak English, we can know about the the lyrics all about. What’s more, sometimes we need to say English to communicate with others. Through English, we know about what happen all around the world.
To sum up, learning English is very useful as well as important in our life. To master another language is better than learning nothing at all.
