Participating in the English reading group really helps me improve my English and broaden my horizon. I joined in the group that talked about news for all over the world. Every week, we read and share the news we care about. By reading and sharing news, we can pay more attention on the current issues and know more about what’s happening in the world.
During the discussion, we met different friends with different backgrounds, and we could talk about our opinion, which always gave me a lot of new inspirations. Because we discussed in English, I can practice my English speaking and listening. We all tried to express our opinion completely in English and the leader helped us correct our pronunciation and grammar, we not only discussed about current issues, but also learn English. I was afraid of speaking in English before I joined in the English reading group, but after practicing speaking when we were discussing I am not afraid to speak English to others, even talk to the foreigners. At the end, we had a performance to show what we learned in the past six weeks. All groups tried their best, and we had a lot of fun. It was really an impressive experience. I think it was a very good chance to improve our English listening and speaking.
