when i began to learn english in grade 5 in primary school, i had a great interest in english. and my english always ranked first in the exams. however, when i was in grade 7, my english was not so good as before. because i felt tired of english. i almost wanted to give it up. but later one person changed my attitude totally.
one day, i happened to meet my first english teacher, miss liu, who had always thought highly of me. she asked me how i got along with my english. all at once i didn’t know how to answer her. i was afraid that i would let her down if i told her the truth. at that moment, what i could do was to hang my head. i felt so embarrassed. but miss liu seemed to have known everything. she said to me patiently, “don’t wait for what you want to come to you. go after it. everyone has ever failed before. a successful person can succeed because of his persistence.” she continued, “you should pluck up your courage and have another try. don’t be afraid of difficulties. instead, you ought to challenge them. only in this way can you succeed. you will never fail. i believe in you.” hearing these, i couldn’t help crying. i promised miss liu that i would try my best and never give up whatever difficulties i might meet with.
now, i have made it. in my senior one, my english is still keeping the first. and i won’t have my english be left behind once again.
it was miss liu who encouraged me to rebuild my confidence. she has taught me a lesson, which i will keep in my mind forever.
