Recently, a heated debate on how to learn English grammar well has been discussed among our university students. Since we are sophomores, majoring in English education, it's time for us to study the course of English grammar. And the problem is how can we study it well through our effort. From my perspective, though English grammar is more difficult to learn than before, we should try to find a suitable method that is helpful and beneficial for us to learn it more efficient and convenient. However, the most significant factors to study it well are listed as follows.
In the first place, instead of wasting time to repeat the content of the book, developing an interest is previously necessary. Curiosity is the engine of intellectual achievement-it's what drives us to keep learning, keep trying, and keep pushing forward. Curiosity arises, Loewenstein wrote, "when attention becomes focused on a gap in one's knowledge. Such information gaps produce the feeling of deprivation labeled curiosity. The curious individual is motivated to obtain the missing information to reduce or eliminate the feeling of deprivation. "Loewenstein's theory helps explain why curiosity is such a motivator: it's not only an emotion, but also a powerful feeling that impels us forward until we find the information that will fill in the gap in our knowledge. Not until we really have curiosity towards it, can we eventually learn it well, deeply and thoroughly.
In the second place, top priority should be given to the importance of practice. Having memorized considerable literary texts, Zhao Kuo, a well-known individual in Chinese history could talk theoretically and logically when discussing that he was defeated by the state of Qin, which reveals that the significance of practice shouldn't be ignored. There is no denying that when we want to learn it well, instead of hanging it in our mouth, we should put it into practice under our plan, or we will gain nothing but daydreaming.
What's more, more emphasis should be put on persistence. Nobody could have imagined that an enormous whale, weighing 8,600 kilograms, can jump out of the sea as high as 6.6 meters. Anyhow, this wonder does exist. As the trainer gradually raised the jump height, the whale jumped higher and higher day after day. In view of the example above, we can conclude that success always comes with day-by-day progress. As the proverb goes, Rome was not built in one day. Therefore, persistence plays an extremely significant role in learning it well.
In a word, history has provided us with adequate evidence to confirm that constant dripping wears away a stone. Only cultivating curiosity and putting it into practice remorselessly, can we finally achieve our goals.
