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.
