How do you learn best?
This week we asked students at New Star High School about the best ways to learn more English. Many said they learnt by using English. Some students had more specific suggestions. Lillian Li, for example, said the best way to learn new words was by reading English magazines. She said that memorizing the words of pop songs also helped a little. When we asked about studying grammar, she said, “I never study grammar. It’s too boring.” specific adj. 明确的;详细而精确的 memorize(memorizing) v. 记忆;背诵 grammar n.语法;语法规则
Wei Ming feels differently. He’s been learning English for six years and really loves it. He thinks studying grammar is a great way to learn a language. He also thinks that watching English movies isn’t a bad way because he can watch the actors say the words. Sometimes, however, he finds watching movies frustrating because the people speak too quickly. differently adv.不同地;有区别地 frustrate v.使失望;使沮丧;使厌烦
frustrating adj.令人沮丧的;令人失望的 quickly adv.快地;迅速地
Liu Chang said that joining the English club at school was the best way to improve her English. Students get lots of practice and they also have fun. She added that having conversations with friends was not helpful at all. “We get excited about something and then end up speaking in Chinese,” she said.
not at all 根本(不); 全然(不) add v.又说;继续说
get excited about end up结束;告终 对…感到兴奋
疑难解释 1. He asked his mother to buy him a new bicycle. 他请求他母亲给他买一辆新自行车。 2. Many said they learnt by using English . 许多（学生）说他们通过使用英语来学习。 Many在这里是代词，而不是形容词，意为 Many students. Many is a large number of something. 例如： We can put away many of these plates . We don’t need this many. 我们可以把许多盘子收起来，用不着这么多。
3. I felt frustrated at that time. 那时，我觉 得很沮丧。 类似
的还有请同学们在学习中注意收集 4. not at all 根本不，全然不 eg. My brother did not like the scarf at all. not经常可以和助动词结合在一起, at all 则放在句尾
5. get excited 变得兴奋起来 get是系动词， 有“逐渐变得”的含义 get + adj get mad 生气 get clear变得清楚了 The long journey got the children all tired. 长途旅行使得孩子们疲惫不堪。
6. end up doing sth 终止做某事，结束做 某事 后面加动名词短语 相当于finish doing sth . 但要注意与stop doing sth 的区别 eg. We had to stop singing because someb ody knocked at the door. 另外，end up with … 以…结束 The party ended up with her singing. 晚会以她的歌唱而告终。
Lillian Li 1. Reading English magazines, the best way 2.Memorizing the words of pop songs, help a little 3.Never study grammar, too boring
1.我认为学英语的最好方法是用英 语。 2、记住单词的最好方法是阅读英 文报纸。 3、 记住流行歌曲的歌词也是有一 些帮助的。 4、 我从来不学语法。太烦人了。
1.Studying grammar, a great way 2. Watching English movies, not a bad way 3. sometimes, find it frustrating, the people speak too quickly
Wei Ming 1. 我学习英语有六年了。 2. 我认为学习英语的最好方法是学 习语法。 3. 看英文电影也不是坏方法， 因为我可以看见演员说单词。 4. 但是，有时候我发现 看电影也挺让人沮丧的。 因为人们讲话太快了。
Join the English club, the best way to improve … get lots of practice and have fun 2. Having conversations with friends, not helpful, at all. End up speaking in Chinese.
加入英语俱乐部是 提高英语的最好方法。 2. 学生们得到很多训练， 也很有乐趣。 3. 和朋友们练习对话根本没有帮助。 4. 我们特别兴奋，然后就以讲汉语结束 了。
