Nowadays, the ability to expressing is very important. It helps us convery our ideas to others, express our views on various of issues, deal with customers, even have a better relationship with our families and partners. For me, it is especially important, because I very much enjoy learning languages and I value words and ideas.

One obvious problem I have is lack of vocabulary, both in English and Chinese (my native language). At first, I thought it was just me having this problem. Later when I had to conduct street interviews where I interview Chinese people about different topics. Some are easy to answer, and others are harder. What I have discovered is that most Chinese don't know how to express themselves. They either do not have views or they simply cannot convert their thoughts into words.

However, I do not accept myself being "Chinese". I want to be able to speak or write in a clear and concise way. I know it means practice, and I am willing to spend time on it.
