Why is this word spelled wrong again? It's just that I don't know it by heart! Copy it ten more times and you will remember it." I looked at the child's single-word test paper and sighed deeply. "I'm just being careless!" He held his chin and slowly picked up the pen with an indifferent look on his face. It's true that the emperor is not in a hurry, and the eunuch is in a hurry. For English learning, who doesn't want to let their children win at the starting point. I just realized that I was also the accomplice of stifling my child's English learning. At a party with my friends, I talked about my child's English learning situation, "Don't worry, we have come this way before!" said my friend. what! yes! We came this way before. Before we entered the cram school, we crammed our feet and tried our best to recite the one-word quiz that came later. Memories that I definitely don't want to relive now. Why would I impose it on my own child when I'm already miserable with this way of learning? Do I want my child to repeat his own experience?

Under such an epiphany, I began to notice that I was too eager to seek good things, and ignored the children's most real feelings. In the past, whether it was high school or university, it was a big exam to determine life and death, and there was still a chance to fight before the exam. Now, the 12-year state education started in 2013 has only two channels: exam-free admission and special admissions when entering middle and high schools. However, last year, the Ministry of Education also said that the fastest time for admission will be 2010 based on number list the grades in the school. In the five semesters, three semesters will be selected, and the results of the 15th grade examination will be selected for the nine grades. The applicable objects will be from now on. The primary six students began. In the face of such changes, the past education model is no longer applicable, and children's usual preparation becomes more important. English is not something that can be learned overnight, let alone giving children a hard way. Children's learning will become a marathon, not a sprint. As far as long-term parenting is concerned, English learning needs to be regarded as a kind of hobby cultivation.
After all, when children grow up, even if they forget the periodic table, they can live through the days, but English is useful for a lifetime. These concepts are easy to talk about, but moms don't know where to start. Usually it is enough to worry about how to make children have fun and learn, not to mention the fact that children learn English well. If you want your child to learn English well, it starts with understanding the culture. I can't help thinking: the same is the language, why haven't we experienced such troubles when learning Chinese? The biggest reason is the environment. We usually learn Chinese listening, speaking, reading and writing in our daily life, but why not learn English? For children, English is to be remembered through feeling, so as not to have a sense of rejection in the process of learning. From our parents' point of view, "good English" means being able to use the language fluently and confidently, but it's not just translating Chinese into English and speaking it out - the fluency of a language depends on whether you think logically in that language.
