A Brave New Trial
Just a moment ago, I have repeated such an experience again: Encountering a programing problem and trying to tackle it through retrieving a resolution from Chinese technology community. However, no genuinely valid information earned after I taking half an hour browsing CSDN, cnblogs, SegmentFault, etc. Eventually I translated the question into English and soon get the correct answer in StackOverflow.
This type of scenario has occurred numerous times before. I find it really weird that though we know we may get more accurate answer and gain it more quickly from foreign technology community, we still intent to try our luck in the Chinese one first, and show no sign of tiring of doing that, over and over again.
All in all, I ascribe the reason why this incident always repeats to the fear of using English. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, isn’t it? We have studied English throughout our academic lives, yet when we need to utilize it, we are hesitant to do so. How pathetic. So I made a decision that despite of necessary social activity, I will try to use English in my daily life as much as possible, such as writing blogs in English, using search engine in English, trying to use English forum and so on.
This is actually a brave new trial, and I wonder what I will gain after the experience lasting for one month.
