The English Corner is a place where people come to talk to each other in English, even though their native language may be Chinese or Japanese. They may be strangers to each other at first, but have a good chance to become friends. Our English Corner helps us a lot in learning how to communicate in English. Being able to write is just part of learning a language. We must learn to speak, too. We don't speak English often in a Chinese-speaking environment. In the English Corner, however, people speak and think in English, so we learn to speak English fluently. Our English corner is also a good place to make new friends. We do not often talk with strangers. However, in the English Corner our main purpose is to talk. We can speak with anybody and express our own opinions. So we get to know each other quickly. If someone has trouble, we can encourage him. This brings us close together. Our English Corner enlarges our view of the world, too. We learn more about the people and the world through talking. We learn how to make ourselves understood, and get more eager, active and enterprising.
