What is language for? Some people seem to think it’s for practicing grammarrules and learning lists of words? The longer the lists, the better. That’swrong. Language is for the exchange of ideas and information. It’s meaninglessknowing all about a language if you can’t use it freely. Many students I havemet know hundreds of grammar rules, but they can’t speak correctly or fluently(流利地). They are afraid of making mistakes. One shouldn’t be afraid of makingmistakes when speaking a foreign language. Native speakers make mistakes andbreak rules, too. Bernard Shaw once wrote, “Foreigners often speak English toocorrectly.’’ But the mistakes that native speakers make are different from thosethat Chinese students make. They’re English mistakes in the English language.And if enough native speakers break a rule, it is no longer a rule. What used tobe wrong becom/#es right. People not only make history, they make language. Buta people (民族) can only make its own language. It can’t make another people’slanguage. So Chinese students of English should pay attention to grammar, butthey shouldn’t overdo it. They should put com/#munication first.[小
