I am a post 85 generation girl. When I began to study in primary school, more and more school children start to learn English with their private tutors. Our school offer us the English classes from Grade 3. But the at that time, learning English just like playing games, especially for  eight-year school children. Because we didn’t have any sense on this subject. Parents and teachers want us to learn, OK, we learn it! When we began to study in middle school. English has became a subject and its place was equal to Chinese and Math. During my middle school and high school study. English became my “BEST FRIEND” because I had to meet it many times a day and I should show my best tolerance to it! In those days,  the goal of leaning English was to attend the exam and got high points, not to communicate with people! So, When I finished the Chinese famous GAOKAO. I nearly forgot all the grammars which I had remembered. I thought I can leave it forever and I don’t want to be its slave anymore! But the fact was , I was fall in love with it! Because I don’t have the pressure of learning English any more. And I use it as a tool to communicate, to make friends and gain knowledge! I experiences the happiness of learning a second language!

Do you want to learn a second language? Why do you want to learn it? Share your experience with me!

At school, I have no interest in learning English, but for the test, we have to learn it. Now , it is changed, I am interested in it, and have made a big progress, especially in my oral English. It is  about half year that I keep on learning it. I believe interest is my best teacher. At the begianing of learning it , I just want to change a better job, so I spent a lot of time in it , then I have found that, it's much more efficiently than in the college in learning it.

I am so curious about your interests in learning English! In my opinion, if someone has suffered so much on something, it will be very hard to love and  get the interest again. How did you  do that?

Learning English is a good idea. If Ho Chi Minh had not learn English or French, the Southeast Asians would had not been able to become free and Independence from the occupiers who speak English. To defeat your enemies, you must learn the enemies' way. Learning other's language also help you make friends while defeating enemies.
I am an Asian American. I came to Chinadaily forum hoping to share my experience, knowledge, and my point of view. And in return I want to get the same in return from friends from around the world.
