My Learning Goals

I??m major in English Translation and Comparative Cultural Studies. I think that means it contains two main aspects: translation and studies of cultures. Translation requires a capability of a relatively high level of a foreign language (English), and focuses on practice. Studies of cultures require cultural background of the foreign language, concentrating on the theory. But sometimes, I prefer combining them to separating, because I think they interlink closely with each other. Therefore, it is complex but interesting, that??s why I choose this course.

At present, I think the major goal focuses on studying the basis of English language, which are Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. I am confident in Speaking, and am glad to express my opinions to the other people. But I have to admit Listening and Writing are my weaknesses. So I intend to listen BBC News everyday to improve my listening and keep practicing summary after reading newspapers to improve my writing. I believe, in this way, I can get closer to my goals.

I think I like English, from my childhood, without any reasons. Perhaps I like the changes when both languages are translated into each other. So I seldom feel tired on studying English. If I think I am tired, I will listen some nice English songs to have a break, or watch a wonderful English movie.

I like making a list of study before I start to work. What I have to do today, and what I have to do this week, or next week, are clearly written down on a piece of paper. This can help me work effectively. Otherwise, in spare time, I make a plan to read a book or interesting articles each month. It also gives me a lot of inspirations on my studies.

One Song Moves Me

I Still Believe

You look in my eyes
And I get emotional Inside
I know it’s crazy but
You still can touch my heart
And after all this time
You’d think that I
Wouldn’t feel the same
But time melts into nothing
And nothing’s changed

I still believe, someday you and me
Will find ourselves in love again
I had a dream, someday you and me
Will find ourselves in love again

Each day of my life
I’m filled with all the joy I could find
You know that I am not the desperate type
If there’s one spark of hope left in my grasp
I’ll hold it with both hands
It’s worth the risk of burning
To have a second chance
No, no, no, no, no, nooo I need you baby
I still believe that we can be together
Ooooohoh no no nooo
If we believe that true love never has to end
Then we must know that we will love again
I still believe, someday you and me
Will find ourselves in love again
Oh baby, yeah yeah
I had a dream, you and me
Will find ourselves in love Again
(I still believe)
Oh baby I do
(Someday you and me)
Just give me one more time And love Again
I had a dream, someday you and me
Will find ourselves in love Again
