Almost everyone is learning English, but most people can’t study it well enough to use it.
How do we study English? Here are some ideas. They may help you to learn the English language
For most people, the biggest problem in learning a new language is their own fear(恐 惧 ).
They worry about that they won’t say things correctly or that they will look silly so they don’t talk
at all. Don’t do this. If you want to be successful, you must practice speaking it again and again
until you get it right. Don’t let a little fear stop you.
Surround Yourself With English
Surround yourself with English. Put English books around your room, listen to English
language radio, watch English news, movies and television. Speak English with your friends
whenever you can. The more English things that you have around you, the faster you will learn.
As long as you have some free time, you should try to look at something about English.
Many people think that exercises and tests aren’t very interesting. However, by finishing
exercises and taking tests you can really make your English better.
Nobody likes to hear their own voice on tape but it is good to find the difference between
your English and tape.

September 10 is a day for us to say “thank you” to teachers. But next year we might do it on
another day. Maybe we will move Teachers’ Day to September 28, which is believed to be the
birthday of Confucius (551-479BC).
Chinese people started to celebrate(庆 祝 ) Teachers’ Day in 1985. There was no special
reason why people choose September 10 to celebrate. But many people think it is not a good
choice. Teachers are always too busy on September 10 because the new term starts at the
beginning of the month. If the day is at the end of September, it will be near the National Day and
teachers can enjoy the two holidays together. Besides, people think Teachers’ Day should fall on a
day with special historical and cultural(文化的) meaning. That’s why someone thinks it’s good to
choose September 28 as Teachers’ Day.[来源:学,科,网 Z,X,X,K]
