Every night in a university, students with an assignment to turn in the next day will almost certainly pull an all-nighter to get the assignment finished. Of course, they were given enough time to get the work done, but as students suffering from procrastination, they waited patiently for the deadline.
No matter how tough the work is, students find it extremely difficult to start working on the assignment especially if they’re not turning it in anytime soon. This not only leads to failing grades, one’s health is bound to crash under the unnecessary pressure and stress brought about by procrastination.
The biggest challenge faced by a procrastinating student is trying to exhaust a course syllabus the night before the examination. This can be pretty tasking as the body is left with no time to recover because the student has to study for the next paper. Thus it is no surprise to see a large number of the student population sick during examination periods, no surprise either that their grades are capable of giving anyone (the students inclusive) a mild heart attack.
As humans, procrastination is something we can’t push to the curb since we all happen to suffer from it. However, it becomes a disease for the one whose life is lived on procrastination to the point where it affects their grades, jobs, social life, and of course, their health. But it’s a disease that can be fought and it’s one you can win unless you procrastinate the fight….

Let’s agree that Chinese and English are two totally different languages – pronunciation, grammar, written form, expressions – it all differs. From a broader perspective, there are some major differences between.
- English emphasizes the structure, while Chinese focuses on the meaning. In English, it is very common to see one long sentence with a long modifier, and pronouns like “we”, “she”, “they” in addition to “that” and “which”, to avoid recurrences. The sentence could be very long and complicated, this is especially obvious in legal articles. However, in the Chinese language, generally sentences are shorter and even if it’s a long sentence, it would be divided into several short sentences or phrases by comma.
Let’s face it, China is a big mobile nation. Nowadays, you can’t imagine a Chinese without a bunch of applications at the palm of their hand. The study shows that in 2017 the average mobile internet user had 40 apps installed on their phone. There are apps virtually for any need: effective online shopping can be conducted with TaoBao and Alipay, social interaction is impossible without WeChat, and listening to music is way more enjoyable with Tik Tok.
The sphere of education hasn’t skipped this trend. There are a lot of apps that can make Chinese students’ English study become more convenient. We’ve come up with the list of 5 most effective and popular apps ready for download right now.
