What kinds of books do you like to read?
I'd say I like reading quite a variety of books, both fiction as well as nonfiction. So for example, I'm a big fan of detective novels, because I enjoy trying to solve the crimes while I'm reading, although I have to admit I'm pretty useless at it most of the time! And as for nonfiction stuff, I'd say I mostly like reading things like self-help books and biographies of various people I admire, such as the new book on Steve Jobs, which I'm currently in the middle of reading.
Are you reading any books at the moment?
Yeah, I'm actually halfway through a couple of books right now. One of them's a novel which a friend of mine lent me, and the other is a book on business, which I bought about a year ago, but didn't get round to reading until now.
How many languages can you speak?
Only two, unfortunately, those being Chinese and English, but if dialects count, then I suppose you could say three languages, as I can also speak the local dialect of my hometown, which is actually quite a bit different to Chinese.
How did you learn English?
Well, I mostly learned it in class at middle school and high school, where we basically just went through the text book with the teacher and took notes. But in my spare time I would always try to memorize all the various words and phrases we had been through in class, which I think helped a lot. And as well as this, I would also say I've learnt a fair amount through watching English films and TV series, so it's basically been a mixture of things.
How long have you been learning English?
I've been learning for quite a while, – probably something like 9 or 10 years now, because most students here start learning English from a pretty early age.
Would you say it's a difficult language to learn?
Yeah, for sure! I mean, learning all the grammar's a nightmare, because there's just so much of it to remember. So sometimes it can really drive me crazy, especially trying to remember all the different tenses, which I find really confusing!
What do you think is the fastest way to learn a language?
That's a good question, and I guess I'd say probably the fastest way is to immerse yourself in the language you're trying to learn. And one of the best ways of doing this would be to go and stay for a while in the country where the language is spoken, which is what quite a lot of my friends have done, and, as a result, they can now speak really good English.
