Speaking Clearly in English
Q Dear John Doe teacher,
i have a big problem in my oral english .i cannot speak every word clearly when put in a sentences. it seems as my tongue is a litter bit shorter than others. whenever i record my reading material i could not identify what is talking about .i tried ti slow down my speed ,it proved to be much better,but not so effective .could you please help me .i will be very appreciate for your kindness.
A Hi, Lily,
I can understand your problem. It is quite common. Your tongue is not accustomed to speaking in English. You were correct to slow down. Don't feel like you have to talk fast! A lot of people speak slowing in English-speaking countries too. By and by, when you are more fluent, you will be able to speak faster.

Problems for Chinese Learners
Q What do you think are the bigest problems in learning English for Chinese ? and how to overcome them?
A Hi,Mary,
I think one of the biggest problems for Chinese learning English is the lack of opportunities to practice. To overcome that, one must take advantage of every opportunity. Another big problem is the lack of confidence, or being shy and afraid to make a mistake. To overcome that: just do it!

Improving English
Q 我是一名英语专业的学生上大学2年级。
A Hi, Cissy,
How often do you practice listening? If you want to improve, you must practice as much as possible. How is your reading comprehension ability? If you can read and understand but only have problems understanding when listening, then you should concentrate on practicing listening.

Struggle With and Struggle Against
Q Hello!
I have a question to ask you:what're the differences between "strrggle with"and "struggle aginst"?
A Hi, 月儿,
Long time no see!

They are sometimes interchangeable. But "struggle against" usually has to do with something that one does not want to do, or an enemy. It implies something opposite. e.g. The struggle against evil is long and hard.

By the way, are you still looking for a penfriend?

A Hi, Lin,
As I have told others before, you have to practice more. One main reason for this question and answer BBS is for practicing English.

Learning English is just like learning everything else: start with something simple. So you should start with something that is suitable to you.

Kindergartens in America
Q A child who is at age five attends Kindergarten in America, generally, How many years should the child stay in Kindergarten? one or two years? About how much USD should their parents pay for it every semester?
A Hi,Sandy,
I think generally a child goes to pre-school for 1 year, and then kindergarten for 2 years. I don't know how much it costs - I am sure it varies from place to place. You may want to do some research on-line on kindergartens in the locale you are interested in.

How to Think in English
Q how to think in english?
A Hi, Ljyang,
If you are not a native speaker of English, in order to think in English, you first need to be fluent in it. In fact thinking in it is a good guage on your fluency. To think in it means that you associate objects and concepts with English. It is like a reflex. You can actually train yourself to do that. We hope to have some Flash games people can download to help them practice.

How to make use of the advice
Q thank you very much for your respondence about my question.and now i have another question.would please tell me how to make the best use of your excellent advise you've done here for all of us.actually,i believe we all want to learn more from you.thanks wishes.
A Hi, Stone,
My words of advice on learning english are all very practical. So I am not sure how to spell them out even more.

I think the first battle is to have the incentive to learn. Once we are motivated to learn, we need to decide on the goals, especially the short-term goals. That's why I often ask how much time you want to spend on learning English everyday. Once you have these two things settled, the rest is much easier because I do think that all of you can become good at English.

I cannot force you to read 2 pages of English everyday. I cannot force you to review English words everyday. You have to do it yourself. I can find more material to help you, encourage you to read and listen to it every week, but actually doing it is up to yourself.

Advice for the Timid
Q 嗨 你好 我是大一的新生 学国贸韧专业的 我想学好英语但我胆子比较小 都不敢讲 我想问一下如何让自己放开胆子地讲 谢谢
A Hi,鸭子,
I think it will be good to set small goals. If your goal is to just say one word: "hello", then it is easier to achieve. Or just to say "good morning", or something simple. Or if you are in class, your goal can be to say: "I don't understand. Could you explain that please?" Another way is to record something you say and let someone listen to it. Would you like to record something and send it to me?

Needing to use English at work is a good incentive for improvement. Since you are in the hotel industry, it will be good to start with the basics you need for work. And you must decide how much time to devote to practicing it everyday.

Improving Your English
Q 你好!我想学,不过我的基础很差。单词也少,语感也不好,词态也不行。怎么办呢?有没有容易上学的方法呢?谢谢
A Hi, 快乐之星,
Do you read English stories? If you don't, you should start now. Find a book that is right for your level and read it, looking up the words in a dictionary and write them down in a notebook together with how it is used in the story. Review that regularly.
- John

Reciting to Improve Oral English
Q hi john,my major is english,i know some foreign teachers,i spend time with them,but i find didn't improve my oral english a lot,i still have listening problems,so i decide i recite a short aretile everyday to improve my oral english ,do you think it's a good way,i will graduate in next summer,maybe in the end of this year i will find a job ,i hope i have a perfect english ,tell me your advise ,thank you,blessing
A Hi, Eva,
When it comes to the speed of improvement, it depends on your level. I think the better you are, the less obvious the improvement is. And the closer you are to "perfection", the more difficult it is.

I think every little bit of practice helps. So reciting a short article will help, but if you want to improve on your listening, then wouldn't it be better to listen to tapes of conversations - and mimic the people?

I wonder why you have difficulty listening. How long have you been spending time in chatting with your foreign teachers? Is it the speed that makes it hard? Is it their vocabulary - things that you don't understand?

By the way, it would be good for you to pay closer attention to your punctuations. It may seem a minor thing, but it is important.

Little grass.

To Somebody vs For Somebody
Q Hi,Dear John ,
I'm Little grass.Thank you for your answers to my questions very much.I have a question here again. Is " to sb."different from " for sb.?"What's their difference?
Give me an example,OK?Thanks.
A Hi, Little Grass,
"To somebody" and "for somebody" are generally quite different. For example:
1. I want to speak to you. 我想跟/向 你讲话
2. I want to speak for you. 我想为/代你讲话
3. I walked to him. 我步向他
4. I walked for him.我代他步行

However, there are times when they are similar:
1. I went to her when I heard her cry.
2. I went for her when I heard her cry.
Here in example 1, it just means 我到她那里去, but in example 2, it has the implied meaning of going to her to get her and/or take care of her, remove her from danger.

Finding the Right Material
Q Hi, John Doe,I'm a student,I like english,and want to learn it well.But when I read a passage,there are many word I not known its mean.To me,if where is an unknow means word,I could not know the passage mean.I feel my reading speed and understand low.I want to ask you how I inprove my english level.
A Hi,001,
It is important to find the right material to read. Reading something that has too many new or unknown words is frustrating (i.e. makes you annoyed, unhappy, discouraged). So choose something that is suitable for you. It is good to read something that has just a few words unknown to you: neither too many nor too few. Many story books nowadays have a age level on the cover showing what level it is suitable for.

Practicing Basic Oral English
Q hi john:首先谢谢你的回答。现在由于工作非常忙,所以晚上学习的时间很少很少,但我上班的来回车程有2小时,我是否利用这两个小时听些英语,来提高我的听力呢?怎么样的文章或者说什么比较适合我听?谢谢!
A Hi, Milly,
If the journey to and from work takes that long, it is a good idea to make good use of that time.
I think it will be good to start with very simple English. If you want to start at the very basic, see if you can find any tapes that also have a book with pictures to go with the audio but without any Chinese. Then your mind can associate the audio with the pictures. The very basic will be very simple nouns, e.g. cat, dog, cow, etc. This is how you can build up your word association mechanism so that as soon as you see a picture, you don't have to think in Chinese before you can say the English word for it. If you cannot find any, let me know and I will see about getting a list of simple words recorded and making it available for you to download, and then you can draw the pictures yourself in a notebook.

Improving Oral Skills
Q 我是在外贸公司工作,但我的英语不好。一般的英文还能看得懂一点,但是这次有美国客户来跟我对话之后我才明白英语口语真的太差太差,能否告诉我如何学习英语和提高我的口语水平!谢谢!
A Hi, Milly,
I can understand your problem. It is common to many people. Often times you have been learning how to read and write but have not had much practice in conversations. Here are what I see as the main difficulties:

1. The vocabulary of conversational English is slightly different from the written one. People use a lot of slang.
2. The speed that people speak at is faster than someone learning English can keep up, and people often don't annunciate: they slur words together a lot.
3. Someone learning English as a second language usually needs to translate a sentence in order to understand (English to Chinese), and when responding, needs to translate a thought into the second language before saying it (Chinese to English).
4. When speaking, you want to say something perfectly.

The combination of the above makes it very hard to carry on a "normal" conversation.

Here is my advice:
1. If you want to improve, you must be willing to spend time in practicing it.
2. You need to first build a foundation, and this foundation is to be able to understand simple children's English without needing to translate.
3. The next step will be to expand your vocabulary to the adult level up to a point that you don't need to translate.

The final goal of the above is that you will think in English.

Do you think it is possible? I can tell you that it is! If you are living in an environment where everybody speaks English, it will take 6 months. If you don't have that environment, it will take longer, but it is still possible.

So my first question for you is: how much time are you willing to spend everyday in improving your English?

A Hi, Doris,
Have you tried doing what I suggested on the page about Improving Your Listening Skills?
- John

Building Vocabulary
Q Can you tell me how to enlarge vocabulary ?
A Hi, Rose,
I think a lot of students have probably bought a box of "flash cards" for learning new words. The problem is: most people are not disciplined enough to progress beyond words starting with the letter A! But it still takes some effort. So if you cannot make a commitment to work hard at it, you can stop reading this now.

I would suggest that unless you are very disciplined, you should build your vocabulary through the following:
1. reading - reading is essential for building a well-rounded vocabulary at a level that is suitable for you. You can read newspapers, novels, and even magazines. (Readers' Digest is a good one to read since the stories and articles are not long.)
2. writing - what you don't use, you lose! So it is important that you make use of the words and phrases you learn. Write letters, write a diary, write stories...
3. note-taking - use a notebook to write down words and phrases that you have read and would like to learn. Look them up in a dictionary and write down the meanings. Be sure to write down examples of how they are used. Then from time to time review them.

- John
