Janice Lai’s Online Classroom

When I was young, I thought learning is a task. I did well so as to gain compliments and acknowledgements. It was like a game. And to win the game, I followed rules and instructions, I worked attentively, I persevered until I attained my goals. ‘If exam is a game, these are my rules’–no, I didn’t write a list of rules for exams; yes, those rules are in my blood and bones.
Later on, my concept of learning has changed. Learning, to me, becomes my interest. I simply want to know more. Asking ‘why’, ‘what’ and ‘how’ has become my habit. Like when I see ‘organic’ cosmetic products in shops, I ask ‘Why do people prefer organic products?’ Then I further ask myself, ‘So what actually are the ingredients of all those “organic” products?’ followed with another question, ‘Is it possible for me to “DIY” organic cosmetic products myself?’ After weeks of research on organic cosmetic products, I’ve finally figured out a cheap and easy way to make organic lip balm, soap, etc, which are healthy, natural and environmentally friendly. I keep making them and giving them out to my family and friends.
Learning is actually something like this. We are curious. We ask questions. We try, make mistakes and try again. At the end, the knowledge becomes ours.
Never stop learning. Be ready when your chance comes. Janice Lai
Learning English as a second language is the same thing. Before you start seriously learning English, before you read my following learning tips and stuff, ask yourself three very important questions– (1) ‘WHY am I learning English?’ (2) ‘WHAT exactly do I want to achieve? Be able to read all kinds of texts in English? Be able to express in English? Get good results in the public exams?’ and lastly (3) ‘How am I going to achieve my goals?’
As a highly effective and passionate learner myself, my page highlights some effective ways to learn English with the following features:
