英文国家的人如何学习好英文,而对于来自这样的国家的我们,到了英文为主的社会,是否就“奇迹”地自动地可以说一口流利的英文?我曾真实地看到好多的我们本地的华人同胞,在一边自叹工作不好找的同时,其实他们的英文实战水平真的不敢恭维!甚至有好些来此5年、8年甚至12年的老移民,竟然英文差到你不可以想象。为此,前车之鉴,我更加紧张并认真在如何提高英文水平的方面。前天,从中国到新加坡生活的一个朋友给我发来他写的一篇相关英文学习的文章,与我分享,在此,我也同有兴趣的朋友一起分享,互勉一下。
 
Speaking English -- Part I

I believethat many Chinese are obsessed that they cannot speak beautifulEnglish. I'm one of them. Many reasons contribute to our slowprocess of improving our spoken English. I'll list some that arerelevant to my case. 

1. Lowproficiency. For those who're really bad in this language,they can't even readfluently and write correctly. Forthose who have been studying English for many years, reading andwriting are not issues at all. Their problem is listening. InSingapore, Chinese people find Singlish hard to understand. Evenyou have no problem communicating with your Singaporean friends inEnglish one to one, face to face, you are usually embarrassed thatyou don't understand conversations between Singaporeans. Thishappens a lot when you hangout with a bunch of Singaporeanfriends. They use slangs a lotwhen conversation partner is a Singaporean. Whileconversing with Chinese, they are considerate to slow down andavoid non-standardized phrases. This usually causes uneasiness ontheir side, so they'd rather speak Chinese to mainlanders. This isalso a reason that Chinese peoplecannot easily be melt into aSingaporean-contexed frienship network. Languageis a real barrier in this sense. Up to now, Idon't know any Chinese who can freely communicate with Singaporeansin English, but I know somewho can do so with Indians,British and Americans. 

Quite a lot of us canspeak fluently on certain topics, but not all. In my case, I cando daily-life talking quitewell. However, when it comes to a specializedtopic, I hardly make myself fully understood. Thereason, in my opinion, comes intwofold -- knowledge of the topic and confidencein my performance. 

Skills and knowledge ofEnglish are basics and the easy part that we canimprove to speak good Enlish. To be a master of the language, or tospeak beautiful English requires much more phycological exercisesthan cognitive exercises. I'll talk about this in the nextpart.
