My Way of English Learning
I am from Xinjiag China which is located in northwestern part of China. When I was in high school my biggest dream was to go to university in a developed regions of China. I realized this dream easily. At the movement I had entered the University campus I became lost being without a dream. I didn’t know where to go next.
For some reasons I was admitted to a major I didn’t like at all. In fact I was not sure what was my favorite major back then. That was when I decided to use my spare time in learning English. That became my biggest hobby in University. As an ethnic minority in China, I already had the good commend of two languages-Uyghurs and Chinese. So I thought maybe I am good at learning languages that I can make a career with it in the future.
I studied English mainly by myself, on and off. Some people say learning English is just like climbing an iceberg. Back then I was climbing the under water part of that iceberg, couldn’t breathed, couldn’t saw the light. Watch movies and read simplified version of novels kept me survived during this period.
The first turning point in my English learning happened one year after I graduated from University. One of my friends recommended Friends-the popular television series to me. In two years I watched it through three times all over and read some of the scripts. I finally climbed to the surface of the water. I was able to breathed, could saw the light. That means I began to enjoy English.
After that I had the chance to teach English to primary leveled students in a college for one semester. I taught to more than 100 students at the same time. Though work was hard I enjoyed it. At the end of the semester there was a procedure that students give grades to all the teachers who taught them in the semester. I got the highest grade. That was the second turning point. I got the confidence in my English, and in my life. That was the time I began to have a dream about my future–to make a career that related to English.
One year later, due to a change in my working place ,fortunately, I found more time to spend in learning English. That was when the third turning point came. I began to read original English novels and fall in love with it. In three years I finished dozens of novels. To finish the first book I spent several months. For the latest one I used 10 days. I am still reading every day.
Writing was my weakest point always. Through the extension of my reading I began to write some of my feelings down. Through the help of kindhearted net-friends correcting with my grammar, I am getting better. The net-friends are truly giving me inspirations to write more. I think I’m falling in love with writing. I don’t expect to write something great. I’m just enjoying to write down my feelings.
