Group discussion & Presentation
Why should we learn English?
1.What is language for? Some
people seem to think it's for
practicing grammar rules and
learning lists of words---the
longer the words the better.
That's wrong.
Language is for the exchange of
ideas, for communication.
2.Rome wasn't built in a day.
Work harder and practice more.
Your hardworking will be
rewarded by God one day.
3.Relax!Be patient and enjoy
yourself. Learning foreign
languages should be fun.
