Compare with my listening, speaking, translation skills and reading of English, I think my best English skills are pronunciation and writing. In my opinion, if you want to learn English well, you should be interested in it.
I love reading loudly every morning when I studied in Renming University. At that time, I always spoke English with local pronunciation, so my roommates often made fun of my poor pronunciation of English¡£For correcting my pronunciation, I decided to reading everyday. At the same time, I imitated the tape of English everyday, and follow it ¡®s speed. In the beginning, I should promise all of the words I pronounce are correct, and then when I can read a paragraph fluently, and I can read as quickly as possible. Naturally, I should be passion, because reading from slowly to quickly is a long processing. Moreover, I need to repeat it continually, even one word. I still remembered when I reading in the first week, my throat got sick, because my repetition is too much to bearable. Until one day, my teacher told me I have made big improvement in my pronunciation. I found reading not only improve my pronunciation, but also improve my vocabulary and speaking, because I would remember some new words through repetition the paragraph which I read. In addition, because reading with tape of English, so it can elevate listening as well as.
I also think writing is a good way to improve vocabulary, because I cannot always use the same words to write my essay, and I should keep learning the new words. Besides, I can learn the grammar in writing.
Indeed, writing and reading are my way to study English, but I think it is most important that you have to find the way which is good for your English. The best way is what fit for you.
