One should own at three languages. The first one, and of course the basic, is his native language. Besides, it would be best if he knows two foreign languages. Use one fluently and at least know some basic points of the other one. That’s what I think.
Unluckily, I didn’t do what I always said. I use Chinese as my native language. And from the time of middle school, I began to be in touch of English. In college, I suddenly wished to study the other foreign language. I tried. There are so many Latin vocabularies in chemistry and biology science. I was curious and interested. So, in class, I learned Latin for a semester. For English is the international basic language which everyone can speak, I even more wanted to learn a different practical language. So, on holidays, I learned Japanese by myself. How I wished I could I get them!
It’s a pity that I never persisted. Days passed while I didn’t come into to door of the think books yet. Books looked like new all the time. I got little.
So that, I could never drive languages skilled and gracefully. I can use the Chinese language. That’s my duty. But for English and Japanese, I could only speak some words out.
A book called Standard Japanese Language is on the bookshelf.
