“I resisted learning English because I’m really proud of my Chinese culture and wasn’t interested in other countries. My parents tried to push me. My teachers tried to push me. I spent a lot of time studying after class, but I still really sucked at it. I could pass the tests but I didn’t want to open my mouth to speak English. But it wasn’t until I started to push myself and embrace the culture that I improved. I read a lot of books. I watched a lot of shows and successful business presentations. A lot of successful business men and women come from the Western culture so I started to read their articles and listen to everything they were saying. It changed my mind about learning English because China has traditional business practices and I wanted to understand how the Western business world works, how they operate and why these groups of people have become so successful.” (1/2)
