Just like Xie Na did, when in July 2013 she attended Boston University’s Center for English Language & Orientation Programs (CELOP) for a 6-week program to improve her English skills.

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.

As you sit and stare at a blank screen, trying to come up with an introductory paragraph, it can be difficult to recognize the true power of the essay.

Everyone has something to say, don’t they? We are currently living in a political and emotional climate that generates strong opinions and fierce emotions. Unfortunately, many depend on memes, short tweets and three-sentence status updates to relay messages and feelings.

We listen to those with powerful voices, important messages and those that have a sense of familiarity attached to them, such as a celebrity….
