The class of Reading original works to learn English will become a new milestone. From “Moment in Peking” we learn about the beauty of Chinese culture. We also witness the influence of “The Importance of Living” from its election by the Book-of-the-Month Club as the recommendation book of December, 1937, the becoming of the best-seller of USA IN 1938, and the humorous and funny tone of Dr. Lin trying to present the splendid Chinese philosophy.
Re-recognizing the attitude toward life of Chinese people by reading English works will be a brand-new and interesting experience. Do not worry about difficulties in English conversation and pronunciation, Reading original works to learn English, 2010 will take you to a trip to travel through life and lead you to experience the art and beauty of it in a different new way.
