Since English is not my mother tongue, and I am not that kind of person who loves challenging, I hated most of the things that related to English. When I first came to SSIS and read an english book, I almost cried, I thought I was too stupid. I took almost a month to read a book, even though my English skill became better, I still hated reading. I think I would not read even one book for this year if Mr. Macknight did not require us to read. However at the beginning of the year Mr. Macknight told us a good method which is “read what you want to read”. Even though it was pain in the neck to look for new vocabulary, I wanted to because I was curious to know next issue. And this make me spend more time on reading than before. Anyway from now I need to start reading more kinds of deep meaning book rather than entertaining books.
In my opinion, my writing skill has not changed a lot, but now I think more deeply than before. One year before, when I finish reading a book I never try to think about what was author trying to say through the book. I read book just for entertaining my self, but now, I start thinking deeply. Every time I finished a book I tried to find out the meaning inside the book.
