My learning goals

My learning goals
My major is called English Language, Translation, and Culture Studies. I like this course because it is related to the different culture. This degree is a kind of challenging in my life. During the four-year-study, I can experience two different learning and teaching styles. And I also can become an international person who understands the world.
Since the day I entered the university, I have already learnt many approaches to study well. I am good at reading and speaking. Although there are many grammatical mistakes when I was speaking, I overcame the fear of communication with others. I also try my best to practice listening, so I can understand the lecture quite well.
On the other hand, I still have weakness. Sometimes I am worried about critical thinking which is concerned the key of learning here. I am used to believe tutors and books. I don??t know how to think deeply and the direction to think. Furthermore, I don??t know how ask question. I think it is related to the critical thinking. If I don??t think deeply, how could I have question to ask.
I have the motivation to study, but sometimes I feel low. I can??t arrange my time well. Sometimes, I make a plan, but it??s difficult to follow. I think I have the passion to work hard, but I can??t keep working sometimes. As a mature student, I will try my best to control myself to study hard.
Learning culture is quite interesting, so I try to involve myself in this society. I joined the Warwick Volunteer. And I attend the Spanish Course, which I think this a good way to communicate with local people and people from all around the world. All these things can help my work effectively. Not only to practice English, but also to learn the culture in this new environment.
Two years flies very soon, so I have to cherish the time studying aboard. My goal is simple: having a good result after two years. I must word harder and harder.

    You make many good points here and I’m glad that you are actively working to find ways to communicate such as joining clubs and societies and learning a new language. The fact that you have even thought about critical thinking is an important step forward too. I’m sure it won’t be long before you feel confident enough to challenge what you read and what you are told. Keep an open mind but try to make up your own mind, rather than let other people do it for you!
