When I was in middle school, I begin to study English. At that time, I studied very hard, because there were too many words we needed to remember , and we also needed to understand grammar. I also remember that when I took examination I always think that English is harder than mathmatics , so my grade of English is always horrible.
When I graduated from high school , I planed to go to the US. and get a bachelor degree. I need to study English as hard as possible.
Fortunately, I had a great teacher at a workshop in Shenyang. He had studied in England. He taught us his method make us get lots of benefits.
First of all, he told us that you shouldn’t take too much time to study grammar. When we studied in high school, our teacher spend their most time teaching us grammar. That is a wrong way. What is most important? The answer is words. To remember any words whatever you studied. Although it is boring, we also need to do it.
For this point, I collected a lot of methods to remember words. Like Association Memory method, super-imagination method(associative image).But the most important staff is our effort.
Second, we need to get a good sense of language. Just to realize that when we were a child , we did not study any grammar , but what makes us speak fluently? It is sense of language. Therefore we needed listening and speaking practice to improve our sense of language.
Currently my English is not good enough, I also need to study hardly. I study in ESL 6a ELAC. It is a good class with good teacher and friendly classmates.I think I will improve my English a lot for this class experience.
