I've been interested in English for a long time. Back when I graduated from high school and was making decision about which major to choose, I even considered English. Then I was told that language should be the communicative tool but not a tool for living. So I just went with the flow and chose one of the most popular majors in China -- Electronic Engineering. Luckily, I found that it's not a bad thing to step into this field and I've still got my passion for English all the time. Now I've been away from school for over three years, but I keep learning and try to use it as much as possible. I may not be able to communicate with native speakers without any problems, but I'm happy with the way I'm learning English. In conclusion, what I think of English is passion, participation, and persistence. Here is a photo of my teacher from America -- Sam, and the cat I adopted from him.
