The day before yesterday afternoon, the founder of New Oriental Yu Minhong with their own practical experience to encourage high school students in Jiangcheng college entrance examination: exams around the corner, we must learn to self encouragement. Yu Minhong admitted that from primary school to college, never took the top 20 in the class, but by virtue of self encouragement admitted to Beijing university. From 33 points to 90 points to encourage yourself admitted to the North University a lot of people know as a New Oriental founder Yu Minhong participated in the college entrance examination in the past, but was dragging his leg is now the strengths of the English language --- English, but now he is not the only one who has participated in the three college entrance examination.
Yu Minhong said that for the first time to participate in the college entrance examination, English test only 33 points. In repeat classes, the basis of poor English, never got the teacher's encouragement, relying on a strong "self encouragement function" quite to the end. Second years of college entrance examination, English scores 55 points, although the previous time there is progress, but still failed to score is not high. In the voices of doubt, Yu Minhong to read a senior high school. That summer vacation, Yu Minhong reported an English remedial class. There are two years of accumulation, coupled with last year's very hard, "high Wusheng English" Yu Minhong scored 90 points, was eventually admitted to the north.
For the upcoming college entrance examination students, Yu Minhong said: as long as they do not give up their own, no one can not hit you. "No encouragement, self encouragement." Admitted to the University, from all over the country 50 elite into a class, Yu Minhong is one of them. During college, I never entered the top 40. But I did not give up their own, one day can not recite the text, I spent a week back every day, to the end can talk show." Yu Minhong said that in the case of the same IQ with the students, the only able to win each other is extraordinary effort and perseverance. In his message to the students will attend the university entrance exam: even the last one, is to keep a heart of progress. It takes camel spirit to learn English 5 minutes a day.
"New Oriental expert, many of them are returnees. Speaking, I am not as good as Wang Qiang and Zhou Chenggang (two new Oriental founders), my English has a more obvious accent. But my English vocabulary is less than they can." Yu Minhong said, no matter how busy every day, will take 5 minutes to consolidate vocabulary. "My phone is equipped with English Chinese dictionary software." Yu Minhong bluntly, he is not a genius, more than 30 thousand words in the mind inventory, not which day which accumulated a few months, but so many years every day consolidation results. For many people have a headache vocabulary problem, Yu Minhong said there is no shortcut to go. Only and forgetting rules of rivalry, and spend some time every day to consolidate the memory of words, let the words in my mind long roots.
Yu Minhong said that many parents in their children's English learning, too focused on the results, ignoring the process. He believes that English learning should have the spirit of the camel, and not the spirit of the horse. "Breed and excellent horse, never cease to run, one day will stop; while the camel in the desert of the long road, need long time tenacity persist, believe that will appear in front of the oasis."
