Learning a Foreign Language

Learning a foreign language was one of the most difficult yet most rewarding experiences of my life.


Although at times learning a language was frustrating, it was well worth the effort.


My experience with learning a foreign language began in junior middle school, when I took my first English class.


I had a kind and patient teacher who often praised all of the students.


Because of this positive method, I eagerly answered all the questions I could, never worrying much about making mistakes.


I was at the top of my class for two years.


When I went to senior middle school, I was eager to continue studying English; however, my experience in senior middle school was very different from before.


While my former teacher had been patient with all of the students, my new teacher quickly punished those who gave incorrect answers.


Whenever we answered incorrectly, she pointed a long stick at us and, shaking it up and down, shouted, "No! No! No!"

每当有谁回答错了,她就会用长教鞭指着我们,上下挥舞大喊:“错!错!错!” It didn't take me long to lose my eagerness to answer questions.


Not only did I lose my joy in answering questions, but I also lost my desire to say anything at all in English.


However, that state didn't last long.


When I went to college, I learned that all students were required to take an English course. 到了大学,我了解到所有学生必须上英语课。

Unlike my senior middle school teacher, my college English teachers were patient and kind, and none of them carried long, pointed sticks!


The situation was far from perfect, though.


As our classes were very large, I was only able to answer a couple of questions in each class



Also, after a few weeks of classes, I noticed there were many students who spoke much better than I did.


I began to feel intimidated.


So, once again, although for different reasons, I was afraid to speak.


It seemed my English was going to stay at the same level forever.


That was the situation until a couple of years later when I was offered an opportunity to study English through an online course.


The communication medium was a computer, a phone line, and a modem


. I soon got access to the necessary equipment, learned how to use the technology from a friend and participated in the virtual classroom 5 to 7 days a week.


Online learning is not easier than regular classroom study;


it requires a lot of time, commitment and discipline to keep up with the flow of the course. 它需要花许多的时间,需要学习者专心自律,以跟上课程进度。

I worked hard to meet the minimum standards set by the course and to complete assignments on time.


I practiced all the time.


I carried a little dictionary with me everywhere I went, as well as a notebook in which I listed any new words I heard.

不管去哪里,我都随身携带一本袖珍字典和笔记本,笔记本上记着我遇到的生词。 I made many, sometimes embarrassing, mistakes.


Once in a while I cried out of frustration, and sometimes I felt like giving up.


But I didn't feel intimidated by students who spoke faster than I did because I took all the time I needed to think out my ideas and wrote a reply before posting it on the screen.


Then, one day I realized I could understand just about everything I came across, and most importantly, I could "say" anything I wanted to in English.


Although I was still making many mistakes and was continually learning new ways to say things,

I had finally reaped the benefits of all of my hard work.


Learning a foreign language has been a most trying experience for me, but one that I wouldn't trade for anything.


Not only did learning another language teach me the value of hard work, but it also gave me insights into another culture, and my mind was opened to new ways of seeing things.


The most wonderful result of having learned a foreign language was that I could communicate with many more people than before.


Talking with people is one of my favorite activities, so being able to speak a new language lets me meet new people, participate in conversations, and form new, unforgettable friendships.


Now that I speak a foreign language, instead of staring into space when English is being spoken, I can participate and make friends.

由于我已能说英语,别人讲英语时我不再茫然不解了。我能够参与其中,并结交朋友。 I am able to reach out to others and bridge the gap between my language and culture and theirs. 我能与人交流,并能够弥合我所说的语言和所处的文化与他们的语言和文化之间的鸿沟。


Deep Concern

The radio clicked on. Rock music blasted orth


Like a shot, the music woke Sandy.


She looked at the clock; it was 6:15 A.M.


Sandy sang along with the words as she lay listening to her favorite radio station.


"Sandy," shouted her father. "Sandy, turn that music off!"

“桑迪,” 她父亲喊道,“桑迪,把音乐关了!”

Steve Finch burst nto her room.


Why do you have to listen to such horrible uff?


It's the same thing over and over.


I'm not sure it is really music, though it does have rhythm."


"I like that music, Dad; it's my favorite.


Listen for a minute; I'm sure you'll like it."


Sandy reached for the radio to turn it up louder.


"No, no, don't do that. I can't stand it.


Turn that radio down so your mother and I can't hear it.


I'm sure that music is hurting your ears as well as your brain."


Sandy walked into the bathroom and turned on the shower.


Then she grabbed the soap and washed thoroughly, including her hair.


After her shower, Sandy brushed her hair, put on her old, green T-shirt and some jeans.


Then she put on her makeup and went to the kitchen.


As usual, she didn't know what to have for breakfast, so she grabbed a glass of milk and ate a

piece of toast while standing by the sink.


Just then, her mother, Jane, entered the kitchen.


"Sandy, why don't you sit down and eat your breakfast? <p9>It isn't healthy to eat standing up." “桑迪,你怎么不坐下吃饭? 站着吃饭对身体不好。”

"I know, Mom, but I don't have time to sit down and eat."


"Did you finish your homework, dear?"



"Did you brush your teeth?"


"Mom, I haven't finished eating breakfast yet. <p10>I'll brush my teeth when I'm done." “妈妈,我还没吃完饭呢。吃完了再刷。”

"Sandy, why are you wearing that old T-shirt? It's disgusting."

“桑迪,你怎么穿那件旧圆领衫呢? 难看死了。”

"Mom, please stop."


"Stop what, dear?"


"Stop buggingme."


"Sandy, are you wearing eyeliner?"


"Yes, Mom, I've been wearing eyeliner for months. Isn't it pretty? "


"Sandy Finch, you're too young to wear that much makeup."


"Mom, I'm fifteen. I'm old enough to wear makeup.


Believe me, all the girls at school wear makeup. Some have tattoos and pierced ears, and noses and tongues, too.

给您说实话吧,学校的女孩子都化妆,有些还文身,有的还戴耳环、鼻环、舌环呢。 Mom, I don't have time to talk about this now—I'm late. I've got to go. See you later."


Sandy kissed her mother quickly on the cheek, picked up her books, and boltedout of the house. 桑迪匆匆吻了一下妈妈的脸颊,拿起书冲出了屋子。

After Sandy had left for school, Jane Finch sat down in peace and quiet to drink her coffee. 桑迪离家上学后,简·芬奇平静地坐下来喝咖啡。

Soon her husband joined her.


"Would you like some coffee, Steve?" asked Jane.
