Yeppp! My first little achievement in studying Chinese

It’s so pleased, grateful and especially motivating to receive this letter knowing that I eventually won the first prize on essay competition in elementary level (I just started to study Chinese for 4 months from ZERO).

Step into the class, sit down and suddenly, a women working at the office (I met her several times before) came inside and approached me for giving me the letter. I thought they could remind me of applying for the health insurance because one of my classmate was reminded about it yesterday. “My health is totally good, I do physical exercise everyday so I’m really fine, don’t need to buy health insurance. And I just don’t have much money to buy health insurance. Is it okay if I don’t pay any cent for the health insurance”, that’s what I was gonna say to her. Haha. But then, I quickly opened the letter and the pleasing feeling swept away my tiredness of being busy recently, being “dramatic-affected” from my sisters. The words ” The first prize” were enough for me to know what happened.

Furthermore, my knowledgeable, professional, lovely and friendly Chinese teacher came in with the cheering voice. She already knew the result and excitedly congratulate me. Feeling grateful.

Little happiness.

Little achievement.

Little motivation.

Little encouragement for me to keep believing in what I’m doing, keep trying.

Well done, dude!

Yeppp! My TOEIC score 970/990

I was delightful to know that I got the highest TOEIC score in Wall Street Institute and even more surprised to accept the truth that : I got 970 out of 990.


Remember when I was about 12 year old boy. I got 1 for my English test. At that time, I didn’t know  how to make an English sentence in right grammar. Somebody told me that I couldn’t be good at language, words. But you know what. I have been keeping faith in myself. I love English: Songs, culture, living-style, etc. So even started from a low point, lived in a small town where nobody uses English in their life, their work, I luckily know 2 enthusiastic English teachers (Ms. Hanh and Ms. Kim Anh). They helped me have English grammar basic.

Moving to Ho Chi Minh City to study at University, I kept hoping and trying to improve my English. I admitted that I wasn’t really trying so hard but until now, by doing a lot of things such as being a member of a English club, reading books in English, studying English by myself, I feel my English is much more improved.

It’s not excellent enough but it’s still on the way. I keep trying to use English as native speaker.

Achieving this high score motivates me a lot. It’s just the right time when I’m gonna leave to Taiwan  TO STUDY MANDARIN. I have to say that I’m not elegant in using words, language but I just love studying it. Let’s see how my English get better and especially, I will master Mandarin after 9 months in Taiwan.

Keep faith in yourself. Trust your ability.
