During the summer vacation, I went to an English training school to improve my English. The aim of this the course which I studied in was helping the students know more about the GRE test. GRE is Graduate Record Examination, and is for graduate students who want to study post graduate in America. The students must get enough marks to apply the good university in America. The reasons of studying this course were improving my English skills firstly. In addition, I wanted to know more about the system of American education, particularly, the way of applying the American universities. In this course, I obtained some new ideas. In my opinion, if I have chance to go to study in American universities, it is much helpful for my further studies. My major is about cultural studies, so it is beneficial to know another country¡¯s culture. America is a powerful country, so it is worthy to study there. Furthermore, America also has diversity culture which is similar with UK. I believe that there are lots of things worthy to research. Especially, through studying the writing section of GRE test, I found some differences between UK and America. It was an evidence to prove two different cultures. Although it is not necessary to study in America in the future, it really helps me in the English skills area. The quantity of demanded vocabulary is 20 thousands. Thus, from that day when the course was over, I began to memorize the vocabulary everyday and I had decided to try the GRE. Finally, I knew a lot of new friends. They all had a dream of studying abroad. Since I have already studied in UK for a year, I told them many useful experiences of living abroad. Moreover, a few of friends have studies in America. We built a good relationship, because we have so many common topics to discuss. I think these things are all my treasure for the future.
