I love languages but this love stops with only Chinese and English. I
can endure the most wordy explanations. I read labels, posters and signs
carefully as though I were proofreading documents.
Some words I came
across stay in my mind for a long time. I learnt the word "meadow" when I
read Heidi at the age of ten. Then there is "negotiate" used to
describe how an old man walks up the stairs.
My interest in languages is
not limited to text alone. Thanks to Youtube, we can easily re-live
those historical moments listening to inspiring speeches.
reminding my students that language proficiency is not just for
university admission but for life and so language practice should not be
merely limited to examination drills. Use it and live it - the only way
And I have a dream - to learn one more language! Which one?
Not sure yet!
