My favorite subject is English. I was interested in learning English when I was a little child.
How to do it well? The most important thing is that when you are learning English, you must listen to the teacher carefully. I listen to the English news on the radio from VOA, BBC, CRI, too. While listening to the news, I write down everything I hear so that I can learn some expressions and also practice my dictation. When I find my reading is not poor, I begin to read China Daily, China Today, Readers Digest, and some other English materials.
These are my ways of learning English. Ill try my best to learn English well.
there are lots of different methods to help us study English well. i will tell some of them. and i'm willing to accept the words from you. first, one should have enough word vocabulary. how to reach this goal? to listen to it much more, to write them down time by time, to read them as frequently as possible? no! there are something even more wonderful! to sing the words with the music you are familiar with. the result is out of your imagination. second, one should watch videos as many as he can. on the videos, people can get a lot. how to speak the words, how to pronounce them, how to handle it with the grammar and so on. that's just two of my ways. do you agree with me? would you like to share yours with me?
As we all know, there are three stages in studypreview, study in class and review, among whichreview is the most important. From my experience, I'd like to talk about the importance andsteps of review. Firstly, make a review plan with certain contents of subjects at acertain time.Secondly, carry on the review plan regularly. Thirdly, examine what has been reviewed andmake supplement in time. One thing to remember is to keep notes all the time. I follow myreview plan strictly and have made progress in my study. It turns out to be good enough. Ofcourse, there is more than one way to review. So long as we review regularly, we can find moreways to improve our studies.
I like English. I think I can share my English learning method with you. First of all, develop interest on English. My way to make it is to watch movies from abroad. At first, I will watch the movie with subtitle. Then I will remove the subtitle, only English left. Gradually, show great interest in English. Secondly, recite vocabularies. Vocabulary is the necessary foundation to start learn English. This time you have to force yourself to remember words. Thirdly, understand basic grammar thoroughly. It is hard for me to understand the meaning of a sentence if I don’t know the basic grammar. Last but not least is to speak more. The basic purpose to learn a language is to communicate. So talk in English as much as you can. And don’t worry about losing face, because everyone makes mistakes. Those are my methods.
It has been seven years since I first got in touch with English and ever since then, these cute little letters have brought joy and wonder to my life. How did I learn English? Now let me show you my way of English learning which is interesting and colorful. There are four key points to study English: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Firstly, we should be brave to talk with others in English. By doing this, we can improve our talking and listening skill. Secondly, we should try to listen to all kinds of English programmes as much as possible. In this way, we can gradually improve our pronunciation. Thirdly, we should often read English books. When we come across a new word. We should guess its meaning through the contest first. Then look it up in the dictionary to have a check. I thin,, it is a good way of reading. Fourthly, we should practice our writing skills. Whenever we have any idea, we should get the pen and write it down at once. It is very important to avoid writing in Chinese way and using the Chinese grammar. As long as we listen, speak, read and write more, we are sure to make remarkable progress!
I suggest that words be memorized in phrases, in sentences and in passages. In a context, words are much easier to understand. Also, in this way, you can master the usage of each word. If a word appears frequently in an article, you may memorize it after you finish reading the article. If it doesnt, you can read the article over and over again so as to memorize it. Its far more interesting to enlarge your vocabulary in this way, isnt it?
Improve Your English Through Practice
After2 or3 years' English learning, you will probably wonder how to further improve your English. When you speak, do not translate what you want to say from Chinese into English. If you do, you'll get mixed up in some usages①. You'll consider“wait”as a transitive ② verb, for instance. You'll never add “to”after“listen”,but you might write “sheeps” for the plural form, though you know they're wrong when the mistakes are pointed out.
Therefore, to improve your English, you need to practise your spoken English, and think in English. That is to say, you should build up your sense of the English language.
Grasp any chance to speak English. When you see a desk, for example, have the word in your mind; say“What's the time? It's….”when you see a clock. In this way, you'll be able to learn with ease and use with freedom. For example, you'll be able to tell that“Korea Lies to the east of China.”but“Guangzhou Likes in the south of China.”without hard thinking.
We're learning English as a foreign Language. It is true that we cannot learn it without any grammatical rules. But, your sense of grammatical rules comes from constant③ use of language. It's unnecessary to recite the rules and apply④ the rules in speaking. In a word, you will improve your English only by opening your mouth to practise. Practice makes perfect.
“What if I make mistakes in speaking English?”Do not worry. You needn't be afraid of making mistakes. Even when people speak their native language, they may make various kinds of mistakes! Further, many kinds of mistakes will be rubbed off in the process of learning through practice.
I Learn English Like This
English is very important for us. Everyone wants to learn it well. My English is very good. How do I learn English?
First, I listen to the teacher and make notes carefully in class. I revise my old lessons and prepare my new lessons after class.
Second, I like speaking English withmy classmates, not only in classroom, but also on the playground. It's to improve my spoken English.
Third, I keep a diary every day to practise my written English.
Besides this, I often read English newspapers or magazines in order to enrich my knowledge on English culture.
The effectiveness of a learning method varies from person to person and also from activity to activity. Learning by doing, learning by reading, and learning by listening all have the transfer of information as their goal, but the information is transferred in very different ways in each case. Each has its benefits. In my own opinion, learning by doing is the method that works best for me.
Learning by doing works because it gives a learner first-hand experience. Other methods are more passive; you’re either listening to a conversation or trying to pay attention to words on a page. However, learning by doing means actually participating in the activity. Can you imagine learning how to play a musical instrument form a book? As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. Frankly, I can’t think of a way that better ensures one has truly learned than by seeing and doing.
In contrast, reading makes learning less easy to visualize. Not only that, learning by reading often requires extra research, such as looking up unfamiliar words. Also, you might not be a good reader, or you might be learning in a second language. If so, you might find it hard to concentrate or become frustrated by the slow pace. So while reading is fun and useful for many people, for others it may not be the best way.
Learning by listening can be enjoyable. Lively debate is interesting, and interesting things are usually easier to learn about. Plus, unlike reading, you can ask questions if you don’t understand. However, as with reading, it is all too easy to become a passive listener and not truly learn anything. If you get bored, you might even fall asleep while you’re listening! When you’re actively participating in something, you’re more likely to stay alert.
Overall, when it comes to learning. I believe that nothing substitutes for the first band experience that physically doing an activity provides.
