You have been working hard to learn English. Do you know American kids are trying to learn Chinese? More than 60,000 American students now study Chinese.
“Because of China’s fast development, Chinese has become more useful, and more and more Americans begin to learn it,” said Scott McGinnis, a Washington language expert (专家). For example, in 1999, only three schools in Chicago had Chinese lessons. This year more than 30 schools there have Chinese during school days. Last year China gave them 3,000 textbooks because they had done a good job.
Although Chinese is becoming more and more popular, it is one of the most difficult languages to learn. Usually, an English speaker takes about 1,320 hours to become good at Chinese. He needs only 480 hours for French, Spanish or Italian.

When you are learning a language, listening, speaking and writing are important, but reading can also be very helpful. When you read, you can not only learn some new words, but also learn how to use them. When you read a passage, it gives you a good example for writing.
Here are some good reading tips.
Firstly, try to read at the right level (水平). Read something that you can understand. If it is too hard for you, it is not interesting.
Secondly, try to understand the new words. If there are four or five new words on a page, don’t use a dictionary. Instead, try to guess their meanings as you read. Mark (作标记) them with a pencil. Then look them up in a dictionary when you finish reading, and write them in your own vocabulary book. Try to remember them.
Thirdly, try to read for a short time once a day. Fifteen minutes or half an hour every day is better than two hours every Sunday. For example, you can read before you go to bed, or after you get up or at lunchtime.
Lastly, read something that interests you. Choose a newspaper, a book or a magazine about a subject that you like. It will be easy enough for you to understand.

My name is Jenny. Next week I am going to take an English exam. I don’t think I can pass the exam. I’m good at speaking and reading, but I am not good at writing or listening. In fact, English is really difficult for me. My mother thinks that listening to English songs is a good idea to learn English. But I don’t think so. What should I do?
Many students think that it is difficult to remember new words. Now I will tell you some good ways.
The first way is to make word lists. Most students remember new words this way. It is a popular and helpful way to remember new words.
The second way is to learn new words through ears. You can find radio programs or TV programs easily. Listen to them carefully, and you will remember their pronunciation.
As for the third way, it is to remember new words at any time. For example, when you see a bottle, think of the word “bottle”. Say “bottle” as soon as you see it.

Dear Lin Tao,
I was happy to read your letter. You asked me for some advice on learning English.
At first, I also found it hard to remember so many words and phrases. Then I found that the best way to remember words was to learn their pronunciation. There are some useful rules in the pronunciation, and they can help me remember new words easily. I also had some grammar problems when I was in first grade. I tried to read more and practice more. Now it isn't very difficult for me to understand the sentences and passages. That's my secret of learning English. I hope it helps you. Please never give up!
