范文

  There are many advantages to learning English at a young age. Since learning any language is quite difficult, it's important to get an early start on it. It makes sense that the more you practice something, the better you will be at it. Language learners have a lot to learn, and it takes a lot of repetition and feedback to become fluent.


  Even more importantly, studies have shown that people are best able to pick up languages when they are young. Children have an amazing ability to learn things quickly. However, this talent fades as time goes on. As people age, it takes them longer and longer to learn new concepts. Therefore, it really is a good idea for people to start learning foreign languages when they are quite young.


  早年学习英文有许多好处。由于学习任何语言都相当困难,因此尽早开始学习很重要。练习越多就会越上手,那是很有道理的。语言学习者有很多东西要学,且要达到流利程度需要多次重复与反馈。


  更加重要的是,研究显示大家在年轻时学习语言的能力最佳。小孩子拥有快速学习的惊人能力。然而,这份天赋会随着时间流逝而逐渐消失。随着年龄渐长,大家学习新概念也会需要花越来越长的时间。因此,在还很年轻的时候就开始学习外语真的是个很棒的主意。

 

进阶范文

  Much has been said about the importance of starting to acquire a second language at an early age. While I believe there is a lot of truth to this belief, I do not think it is the most important factor to success. In my opinion, having the motivation and determination to excel at language learning is just as important as getting an early start.


  Younger learners may be better prepared biologically to learn languages, but older learners can compensate for this by being more efficient. That is, they can develop improved strategies for memorizing new vocabulary and remembering grammar patterns. Because they are more mature thinkers, teenagers and young adults are more likely to develop useful learning plans and stick to them than are young children. Finally, it is a mistake to believe that anyone is too old to learn foreign languages effectively. To me, that is more of an excuse than a valid reason.


  大家都听说过早年开始习得第二语言的重要性。虽然我相信此信念颇具真理,我并不认为这是成功最重要的因素。依我看来,有精通语言学习的动机以及决心与早年开始学习一样重要。


  年轻的学习者在生理上有更好的条件以学习语言,但年长的学习者可藉由更佳的效率来补足这一点。也就是说,他们能发展改良的策略去背诵新字汇和记住文法规则。由于青少年和年轻人思考皆较为成熟,他们比年幼孩童更可能发展有用的学习计划并且持之以恒。最后,相信任何人会因为年纪太大而无法有效地学习外语是一项错误观念。对我而言,这比较象是一种借口而非正当理由。
