☆ What has been your journey like learning foreign language?
English is the first foreign language that I engaged in. My dad brought me to Mark's English, one of those language schools in my hometown, when I was only 7. After learning Children English for 9 years, I quit there and focused entirely on high school English. I would say that studying Children English for 9 years inspired my interest toward English culture as well as the language itself. In comparison with high school English, Children English focus mainly on culture-oriented knowledge instead of test skills. It was also the 9-years experience that I pushed myself to study in Language-Gifted class when I was in high school. I studied English literature and poems then. Now I keep on to the journey of English learning in NCCU.
☆ Why do you choose the particular language to learn this semester?
I choose to learn Spanish this semester, and there are two reasons. First, language is an entry to a certain culture. I want to get access to Spanish culture, for it connects a part of western culture. It's a necessary aspect to learn if we want to know more about the whole west. Second, according to language study, how Spanish works is a lot different from my mother tongue, so it would be a good language to approach and get myself challenged. I hope to have basic capability of using Spanish after this semester.
