Yes, time to give up. Enough is enough. :shock:

When I was a senior of high school preparing for college entrance exam, I decided to give up the subject English for the sake of achieving higher total scores. In hindsight, it was a successful short-term strategy but made a lingering adverse impact on me.

My high-school English scores were miserable to say the least. After some reflection, I considered it least likely to get improved within months and therefore least rewarding to pull an all-nighter for. I made a call to zero in on all the other subjects. The result was fruitful. I managed to outperform all my classmates and attended a prestigious university.

What I didn’t realize was its psychological hint to me. Ever since I felt defeated in English and made every endeavor to avoid any occasions that have something to do with using or learning English. It took me years to get it together and face the problem head-on.

In my case, the decision to give up English was a poisoned chalice.

I had a totally different experience. Because I couldn't understand my teachers' lectures, I put all time and energy on English in senior high school. Thanks to my math and science teachers, English became my best subject from then on. :lol:

I got only 6 points on math for my first entrance college exam. :cry:
