Dude You Were Supposed to Write Here, or Living Proof of Late English Mastery September 5, 2007Posted by Wilz in Personal, Society.
My friend ZY over at his blog opened his wordpress account a while ago coz I was trying to drag him to write some thoughtful posts on Earthwatcher – sorta like the blog sharing arrangement we had once in the past with another friend of ours (mentioned in the About page). The bastard then went on to keep posting on his own blog. :P
I am so tempted to post a photo of him eating chicken here.
Not too many posts there yet, but hope he keeps it up. :)
Another interesting thing to note is that this guy used to be self-confessedly poor in English. Can you tell from the writing on his blog now that he was Chinese educated through and through? Reading his blog bring (virtual) tears to my eyes – this from a guy who used to refuse to write because “everything I write will sound like rubbish coz I dunno how to say it man.” Well, kudos dude. May your self-taught English mastery be an example and shining beacon to those who shy away from the most liberating human language there is.
I think ZY set a good point on the mantra of language learning, which is really quite simple:
- To learn comprehension, read.
- To learn speaking, speak.
- To learn writing, write.
Did I miss anything ZY? Maybe you should post something about that. I’m still emo you’re not posting here though:
