It’s quite normal, but you should adapt to the new environment as soon as possible. 一、This is a place where you will have studied for 3 years. Is it a long time?

There are many reasons for us to learn English well.
Firstly, English is an international language and it is the most widely used
language in the world, It has been said that over 75% of the word’s TV programs and 80% of the information on the internet use English. With the development of our country, more and more foreigners come to China and more and more Chinese are going abroad. The communication of foreigners and us needs the language tool---English.
Secondly, English is one of the most important subjects at school or the
university. If you want to get good marks and want to enter a good university in three years, you must learn it well.
Thirdly, English can help you get a better job in the future, if you can learn
English well, you will have more chances to succeed.
Fourthly, English has been used everywhere in our daily life. For example,
你喜欢天天向上这种脱口秀 （talk show） ， 还是中国好声音 PK 赛又或者是 NBA？ 这些节目都有很多忠实的粉丝(fans)。现在是 E 时代，你有 E-mail 吗？有 MP3， P4,P5， 吗？有 Ipad 吗？如果这些， 你不知道， 你就 out 了！ As you can see, English is very useful. The advantage of learning English is far more than what have been mentioned.

Impossible means I am possible.
Thirdly, the best way of
improving your English is to improve your four skills—Listening, speaking,
reading and writing. We should practice them every day. 1. Listen to me carefully in the English class. Listening to tapes or radio is also a good way. 2. You should be active in the morning reading class. Speak as loudly as possible, as clearly as possible. 3. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. It’s natural to make mistakes when you learn something new. Put your face in your pocket. 4. The best way of improving your English is reciting! 背诵的五大秘诀:A.天天背 B.一 定要跟着录音背 C.背熟了还要背 D.用零碎的时间疯狂背 E.抄写下来,随身携带背. Learning English requires long time. As the famous saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in one day. If one wants to master English well, spending time is essential.
八、 Now, let’s talk about the differences of English between senior middle school and junior middle school. 陡坡效应：初高中英语的区别
何为“陡坡效应”? 高一是学生英语成绩波动最大的一年，因为刚进入高中的学生，无论成绩如何，如果 没有超前学习，都会遭遇极强的“陡坡效应”,即发现知识难度和广度都突然增加，完全超出 了自己的想象；同学之间的竞争氛围甚至超过了初三。“陡坡效应”会使学生压力倍增，名次 迅速落后，甚至开始怀疑自己，对学习失去兴趣。 高考专家刘飞飞老师分析说：高中英语知识量是初中的 2.5 倍
词汇量成倍增长，你准备好了吗？ 小学 6 年初中 3 年学习词汇总量为 1600 词和 400 个左右的词组。 高考要求 3500 词汇需
要在高一高二全部学完。北师版教材，高一高二共 8 本英语教材，除了考纲内词汇 3500 词，
还包括 1500 词左右的超纲词（词汇表上标记为*）。很多学生升入高中后的感觉就是词汇量 成倍的增长了，而且背了就忘。天天的随堂听写，都能得满分，但考试的时候就想不起来。 短时记忆再也不能帮助学生在考试中拿高分了，阅读题大量的生词导致了理解的障碍。 英语全部的语法内容，将会用 1.5 年学完，你能接受吗？ 初三的学生都了解中考英语最容易的题型是考察语法的单选， 15 道题 3 分钟完成， 100% 正确率是很多优秀学生的常态成绩。同样的题型，在高考中却成了拉开学生差距的题型，原 因是中考语法考察的知识点少、难度低、无交叉考点，而高中语法知识点加倍，侧重语境
下语法应用，和不同语法知识点的区别。如上表所示，中考共学习了 3 种从句、8 种时态。 而高考则考察 16 种时态语态、6 大类从句、非谓语动词等 24 个语法难点，并且每一道题， 都会融合几个容易混淆的考点。
100 万词的阅读量，Not kidding! 人大附中高一新生每月要完成 300-400 页的英文原版材料阅读，北京四中将《空中英语 教室》作为学生的第二套教材每周讲解；清华附中、北大附中高一学生每月读一本英文缩略 版小说； 首师大附中课外使用新概念 3 作为课外教材， 北师大附属实验中学高一开始同时使 用北师版教材和大学英语第一册。 为什么重点学校都会有这种折磨学生的教学方式？原因很 简单：新课程标准规定，高中学生要在高中阶段完成 100 万词的英语阅读量，而高中 3 年
的英语教材阅读总量大约是 40 万，也就是说剩余的 60 万词阅读要来自课外。算上高中所 学科目的增加学习时间的减少，很多学生之所以在高考中完形阅读失分严重，就是因为在 高一高二没能达到规定的阅读量，没有形成英语的语感。而语感是不可能在紧张的高三学
习中养成的。这类的学生往往止步于高考英语的中等分数。所以，选择一本好的教材，从高 一开始进行大量地阅读是冲击高考英语高分的基础。 很多学生经历过中考都会认为英语是最容易学的学科， 所以进入高一后把所有的精力放 在数理化学科，而高考英语 150 分，甚至超过了理化在高考中的分数，随着高考改革，题型
的变化英语的难度也在加大。想要赢在高考，需要从高一开始提早规划，超前学 习。 如果说初中像盆中摸鹅卵石的话，那么高中阶段的学习则更像海里摸贝壳， 需要投入更多更大的精力以及更巧妙的方法。
