毅力帶領郭泓志邁向棒球殿堂;勇氣使許芳宜在現代舞壇中成就非凡;J.K.羅琳的熱情和豐富的想像力是她創造出了哈利波特魔法世界的基礎;而在學習英文中尋找樂趣和興趣則是我學好英文的基礎。

對大多數學生來說,著重於單字、文法和背誦句型是在學習上的一大障礙。這樣的學習方式往往會抹殺學習的樂趣。事實上,我們應該要在歡樂的環境中學習,不必害怕說錯勇敢的嘗試並多練習口說。如此一來學習英文會像學母語一樣輕鬆簡單。嗯…幾乎。

芝蔴街裡的老師會用各種有趣的方式讓我們多練習英文。例如:學食物時,老師會帶我們逛超市並給我們英文購物清單;學動物時,老師要我們和同學討論自己最喜歡的動物。除此之外,老師還會帶我們認識各國文化,讓我們對英文產生興趣,並樂於學習。

除了在歡樂的環境下學英文,我相信有勇氣多說英文也是很重要的。記得有一次,經過殯儀館時,我很好奇這個單字怎麼說。於是我描述給老師聽,而老師也告訴我這個單字的講法。在用英文溝通談話時,我們是否講錯字一點也不重要,重要的是對方是否了解。

 

想要精進英文有很多實用又有趣的方式。例如:閱讀英文小說、雜誌,或是看電影及電視節目。以我來說,藉由閱讀達文西密碼,我學到很多藝術的相關單字;而閱讀暮光之城系列小說,我學到很多美式俚語和幽默用詞。

有充分的練習,使用英文會漸漸變得自然。試著找各種機會使英文成為日常生活的一部份。英文不再是學校裡的「科目」,而是能帶領我們邁向未來的坦途。


Hong-Chi Kuo has stamina which helps him become a well-known baseball pitcher; Fang-Yu Sheu has courage which helps her gain the fame in the world of modern dance; J.K. Rowling has passion and rich imagination which help her create the magic world of Harry Potter. Finding happiness and inspiration are the foundations for me to learn English well.
 
Learning English can be as easy as your mother tongue. For most students, focusing on vocabulary, grammar, and memorizing sentence patterns are obstacles to learn English well. These are usually taught in a way that dulls students’ interest in learning. In fact, we should learn English in a happy environment and not be afraid of making mistakes when you speak English. Also, try to speak more .
 
The teachers at Sesame Street always use different ways to help us apply English. For example, when we learned about food, our teacher took us to the supermarket and gave us a shopping list. When we learned about animals, our teacher asked us to talk about our favorite animals with other classmates. Our teachers also taught us many interesting things, like other cultures.
 
Besides learning in a happy environment, I believe that having the courage to speak English is very important. I remember one time when I passed the funeral parlour, and I wondered what it was called in English. Later I described the building to my teacher in English and she told me its English name. It doesn’t matter if we make mistakes when we try to communicate in English. The most important thing is that people can understand what we’re trying to say.
 
There are many enjoyable ways to improve our English. For example, we can read English materials, such as novels and magazines, or we can watch movies and TV programs. I learned a lot of art related vocabulary from reading The Da Vince Co9de and learned a lot of American slang and humor from reading The Twilight Saga.
 
With constant practice and trying to find as many opportunities as you can to make English be a part of your daily life. English is not only just a subject you have to study at school but also leads you to a bright future.
