QW 082612 “English learning is not language learning?”

It makes me curious to see some people consider English learning is NOT language learning. Believe me, there’re learners out there who are dead serious in claiming that they’re learning English, not a language. I’ve heard claims from adult English learners that they’re not good at using English because they’re not good at using a language. What are they trying to get at? I don’t really know. If they’re attributing their poor English proficiency, speaking skills in most cases I guess, to their poor language ability, I’d go “Then what?” If you’re not good at certain things, which is not at all uncommon to anybody, but you need to or want to become good at it, you’d just try hard, harder than those who you’d think are naturally talented. Am I making sense?

It makes me sad to see some people consider English learning is studying simply for a test. I have no idea of how vain and empty such only-for-test learning could be. As an English learner, I consider myself as a very lucky one because I’ve always been fascinated by the language. All the way from Day 1. I’ve never studied the language simply for a test. Of course, I’ve taken various kinds of English proficiency tests and am taking some for research purposes as an English teacher. However, those English proficiency tests are always accessory to my objective of English learning. If you’re learning English strictly for the sake of tests or meeting requirements forced by employers or schools, you can reconsider and shift the focus of your English learning. And always remember how vain and empty only-for-test learning could be.
