[佳句精選]

1. A rich vocabulary is neccessary to proper expression in any language--withoug it, you can
hardly be subtle or profound (細膩 有深度之意)

2. Unfortunately most of you miss the most precise and descriptive words. If you take sports and expercise as an example, you'll find that you only know words such as " boxing" ."swimming".. and so on. ,while you should be taught more, precise vocabulary such as "synchronized swimming" , "fiqure skating"( 花式溜冰) "taekwondo", "bungee jumping", "sumo wresting".
Precision is one of the delights of any language, a lack of precise vocaulary circumvent complete expression.

3. For the vocabulary related to "people", "superiority complex", "inferiority complex", "grouchy", "snobbish", "frugal",etc , should also learned in addition to "good", "bad", "kind".

4. There's also very strict speed learning,but I can't squeeze everything into this column.
嚴格的速度訓練, 要留待下次在談 (不能硬塞在本文之內)

squeeze
