月之光影

Last month, I got depressed about learning English.

Sometimes I feel depressed about learning English.

It doesn't give me the feedback I expected even though I spend a lot of time learning. The TOEIC grade has been stuck at 500-600 range for a long time, which consumes me with self doubt. Did I get the method wrong? Or should I take lessons with a cram school? I am confused.

Few hours later, I got a message from a LingQ user, she corrected the paragraph and said: you're doing great keep practicing. I thank her for the encouragement.

Nowadays I feel better. I must thank those kind people who sent messages with encouragement. Thank you all very much.

Most of the time, someone who claims I am a loser because of test scores is Taiwanese or Chinese, they are not native speakers of English. It might be a facet of Asian culture. I think being self-critical make people easy to control with advertisement and manners, like some kind of herd behavior. It's hard to get rid of the stress from culture. I'm still learning to practice with happiness rather than fear.

  好陣子沒寫語言學習的文章了,我們都深知堅持的困難,兩天打魚三天曬網,不過沒發文倒也不代表我已就此放棄,而是在根據自己的生活作息調整嘗試各種方法。

  現在個人的學習規劃主要是以LingQ這個平台為主體來進行,並佐以FlipboardPocket輔助:

  1. Flipboard蒐集自己有興趣的閱讀材料(文章、影音),存到Pocket,同時練習快速略讀。

  2. 在Pocket讀完全文,確認文章難度和內容精彩度來決定是否收錄至LingQ,再用NaturalReader補足音檔。

  3. 匯入至LingQ學習:聽、讀、說、寫。

  4. 匯出單字和片語到其他工具複習:Quizlet、Anki、Flashcards等。

  這看似就只是一個找資料、閱讀、複習單字等平凡無奇的過程,為何需要這麼多工具呢?這些工具其實都有各自的作用,當然撇開這些工具,回歸最原始的看書看英文學習雜誌、背例句單字、寫考題也不是不行,但套裝雜誌和教科書的內容未必讓你感興趣,再說現在大部分人拿手機的時間會比拿書多,而這些工具的特色就在於蒐集和整理網路資料相當方便,學習這件事最事半功倍也最重要的還是莫過於「找自己有興趣的材料來學習」, 所以接下來會一一圖文講解這個流程。

I’ll post some of my thoughts here in the future, and I'll write in one of these languages (Mandarin, English, Spanish) randomly.
