What the blogger wrote before:

I have to admit that there are still many problems in English education in our country. For example, the teaching method is rigid and often focuses on the mechanical memory of words while ignoring the application methods of words. In fact, many English words have different meanings, and the meanings in different contexts are often different, however, most teachers only let us remember the meaning of a word (and then use the dictation method to detect your memory), but when to use the word, which of the following meanings is used, but we cannot. In addition, many textbooks are out of touch with reality. For example, since we learned English, saying hello has always been "How are you ?", Then, the answer should be "fine", and you will not forget to add "thank you .". However, when I was in the UK, I never said this when I said hello. They basically said "Hi, buddy! How are you doing ?", As a result, I was confused at the beginning and did not know how to answer the question. Then I learned how are you ?" And "How are you doing ?" It is one thing. But I can assure that I have never seen "How are you doing?" In any textbooks (at least from my junior high school English to College English 4 ?" . I have passed level 4 in my sophomore year and level 6 in my sophomore year, but I don't even know the most basic terms of life when I arrive in the UK, it can be seen that there are some failures in English education.

Of course, I am not saying that there is no need to exist at CET4 or cet6. In fact, from my point of view, for the people I come into contact, if you want a college student who has not passed CET4 (especially for a few times) to join an English-speaking country (or a place in Europe, India, Egypt, or the Arab countries) if a person can communicate with each other, both the oral and listening abilities cannot reach the level of normal communication. At best, what's your name?" , "How old are you ?" , "Where are you from ?" However, if the conversation involves adult issues such as culture, history, geography, and current affairs, these college students can basically use the word "blind. Here I will briefly explain the reasons for this situation:

first, you cannot understand what others say. Generally, this is caused by a few reasons. First, the hearing is too close, and the speed of others' speech is fast (as slow as the listening questions in the cet6 test ), we can't tell exactly what words are (even if we can understand them one by one). Second, we don't have strong adaptability to non-standard accents. What we listen to in school is standard English and American, even the Australian accent is rarely seen, but when it comes abroad, how many people can have such a standard English? Just like how many of us can talk about Mandarin and Luo Jing Xing zhibin. For example, in the UK, there are English, Irish, Scottish, Indian, French, Russian, Pakistani, African, Arabic, Jewish, and Japanese ...... The population of each country or region is different (even English people have different regional accents. For example, the London accent is very heavy. The BBC standard English we hear is actually "Oxford" rather than "London". We need to adapt to different accents, it is a very difficult thing (I personally feel that the Indian and Japanese have the heaviest and most difficult to understand, but the Indians are very fluent and can say what they want to say, it won't be a problem to even speak for an hour in class, but the level of the Japanese is ......); Third, the vocabulary is not enough. The words that others say are unknown, which affects the understanding of the entire sentence. Of course, you don't know what others are talking about!

Second, you cannot express what you want to say. There are also many reasons for this problem. First, the vocabulary is insufficient (it seems that the vocabulary is really important). I already know what I want to say in my mind, but I cannot express it in English. For example, in the words "urinate" and "fart", our English teaching experts may think that they are not elegant and have never taught us in books ...... But as long as they are people, where can they not "urinate" or "fart? So if many Chinese students happen to say these two words, they will be dumb. This requires long-term accumulation. Second, insufficient grammar skills. Some people may disagree, saying that grammar has been learned from junior high school to college. Isn't it still not proficient? Unfortunately, although most Chinese students may still be able to make sure that the syntax is correct (and only "possible") when writing a pen, all the syntax issues have come out. The form of a singular and plural word, the "S" after the third person verb, the current progress, the current completion time, the past completion time, the virtual tone, and so on ...... In fact, they are still not proficient in grammar and do not respond instinctively. When speaking words, they are still desperately trying to think about the syntax. The words are not continuous, "En... such a modal word can be said several times in a sentence, which is really tiring. The third reason is that Chinglish is serious and uses Chinese Syntax to set up English words. For example, a real joke is that a girl wants to say "Cave )", it turned out to be "mountain hole" (but it was really understandable to foreigners, but not all foreigners are so smart ).

As mentioned above, we have to rely on accumulation at ordinary times. I spent nearly half a semester (more than three months) in the UK to adapt to the accent of my teacher in class. After moving out of the school dormitory, I listened to the broadcast and watched TV every day, which greatly improved my listening and vocabulary, so even if you have no chance to go abroad, you can also listen to some English broadcasts every day (preferably outside China, you can listen through the Internet), which is beneficial to English learning. Today, I just wrote some simple essays. If I have other ideas about English learning in the future, I will give them some ideas one after another.
