Learning English in Warwick

Some days ago, I joined in the Archery club in Warwick, during three weeks training, the unaware reality that strike me is the talking experience between real native speaker who don't slow their speed of speak and with a large number of slang. It's absolutely discouraged when you can listen to your tutor who speak with their slowly speed clearly but have nothing with these guys. Sometimes I just like a drop in the bucket.

Due to the experience in my life, I know if there is a problem appears, I must solve it. Why I can't understand them? To be frankly, I don't know, maybe lack of vocabulary, confusion over grammar or out of register. In one word, I need change.

In the past, I write down new words whatever I meet and never reread them what means it equal to zero. Therefore, I won't let this situation appears again. Even if I just remember two words exactly a day, I never write down 10 words with nothing left next day.

I have some English film with subtitle, Maybe it's a good way for both fun and study. I remember that 2 two years ago when I was in Renmin university, I said to myself, every week watch one film iteratively until I can understood every details without subtitles, but it seems failed. Then this moment as I write this essay, I suddenly found that my plan is always correct, the only thing I need to do is promise what I planned.

But it's always easier to say than to work. isn't it?

Warwick Farewell – Usama Mansour (1976 – 2007)

It is with great sadness that we report the sudden death of Usama Mansour, a PhD student from the Warwick Manufacturing Group, who died suddenly on 10 October 2007.  Mr Mansour is an Egyptian national and is survived by his wife and 2 year old daughter.
The University wishes to record formally its condolences to Mrs Mansour, the wider family, and Usama's friends and colleagues.  The sudden and unexpected death of a student always brings a time of sadness and reflection for those closely affected, and the wider University commmunity.

fleeting time

Times are really flying, from my born till today, it's almost 22 years, when I sit here for this essay, there are an awful lot of memories flashing by.

I love my parents, they let me enable to touch this world with my hands and my brain. They did their best to support me for my grouth and education whcih let me really understand the definition of real human's spirit and courage.

I miss my friends, althought we are separate into many differents places and enviroment, with their best wishes and blessing, I can face any difficulties without any fear. I know I am very lucky to know you guys, it's my honour and I will never forget.

Now, let's starting fight !!

First impressions of Britain.

I remember it as if it was yesterday, when I walked along in the Warwick the first night, I had a very strongly feeling which lead me into my childhood - everything was fresh. Frankly, it is really a long time that I hadn't experienced this feeling, this time I smiled unselfconsciously.

.............................................................................................................................

Actually, for my personal opinion, I love the UK because of its quiet circumstance and friendly relationship; I was really unaccustomed when some people who were strange for me say "hello" "morning" "how are you" to me. Sometimes I was very compunctious for my lingering actions -----  I just smiled all the time without any feedback. Now I won't make these mistakes any more. I am really sorry about that for those people who might be hurt by me.

...........................................................................................................................

"They are always smiling when they talk to you". It is the biggest impression that British gave me and it made me comfortable as well, I love this atmosphere and it effect on me unconsciously. In other words, the smile made the women more beautifully and the man more gentlemanly. Moreover, from the first day till now, I never have seen any people angrily to each other which made me feel very safely.

....................................................................................................................................

Before I came to the UK, my parents told me to phone them as possible as I can, but till now I just have phoned them for less than 5 times, in other words, I don't miss them and it let me feel very sorry about that, I haven't got the homesick yet, therefore, I haven't signed a phone as well, maybe I won't be homesick. I am a cool blood man. In addition, what of different between past and now, I never told my emotive story to anybody, and I never enjoy hearing anybody tell me his story as well, it's not me, what's happened and what's wrong with it?

.................................................................................................................................

In one word, I fall in love with this country and it sounds that I am being changed unconsciously, what will I become some years later? I don't want to change but it was.
