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.

I have only been to UK for a short time, since I arrived at the University of Warwick as a student . However, in this short time, it has been possible for me to observe UK. In this writing.
British house not only individual, also have individual garden and garage. . In addition, it seems that most people can live in this house.In China,people live in a high building, because there is a large population in China, so the land is limited to build individual house to people; there are only the rich people have but ability to live in the type of house like UK¡£
In British bus, if you want to get off, you have to push the button what near your seat. Otherwise, the bus will go straight without stop. Moreover, when you by bus in UK, you should remember where you need to get off, because there is nobody announce the station.
When I stayed in the beginning ofUK, I always got lost, so I wanted to ask passserby the how to come back my accomodation. But I darely saw people walk on the road, then I lost for 3 hourse. In China, you can see a large numers of people in the road, and you can ask anybody who you want to. Sometimes I feel so quiet and comportable when I walking, but sometimes I feel a little depressed when I want to ask the help.
If I am a seller in UK, I would be happy and relax, because the shops closed early and open late. Therefore, I can enjoy my sleep and come back early, moreover, I can get a nice salary and work in a relaxing enviroment.In conclusion, I hope I can succeed in facing the challenges and the new study environment, lifestyle and health management before I enjoy their life in abroad.
