①Recently，we had a discussion on how to make learning English relaxing and fun.Most students believe that there are many
ways to do so.First of all，we can have more interactive activities in
class，such as discussions，interviews，story-telling and role-pla y.② In this way，we can have more fun learning English.③ Seco ndly，we can take part in more out-of-class activities like Engli sh speech contests and English evenings.Through these activities w e can improve our English skills in an easy and relaxing way.④ Thir dly，we need to find more opportunities to communicate in Engl ish with people，whether they are English teachers or classmate
s，foreigners or Chinese，because using English is the best way
These ideas sound reasonable and practical.From my experienc
e，there are many other interesting and relaxing ways.For exampl
e，we can listen to English songs and watch English movies.⑤We c an also watch English programs on TV or join English clubs or
make English pen-friends on the Internet.
All in all，what we need is more free time and more space.
have more fun learning English学英语更有趣
improve our English skills 提高英语技能 from my experience从我的经验来说
1．Recently，there was a heated discussion in our class about
how to make English learning relaxing and fun. 2．These activities are fun and make us experience great joy a
nd feel the sense of achievement.
3．Next，it makes a great difference to take part in more outof-class activities like English speech contests and English evenings.
4．In addition，as the saying goes that practice makes perfec
t，so never fear losing face in communication，and we'd better mak e full use of every opportunity to practise spoken English with class mates，teachers and foreign guests. It is also beneficial to watch English programs on TV or join E nglish clubs or make English penfriends on the Internet.
