____This essay is going to talk about the self evaluation: English and learning skills . It can be said that English courses accompany with

almost everyone s life . In the primary school , a teacher taught the fundamental knowledge of English such as A,B,C and some simple

spells of the English words such as Apple ,Bed . When entering the junior school, English teacher would teach some grammars and the

pronunciation of English words in the English textbook . In the senior high school ,they would explain the difficult and long sentences for

the students and teach students how to use English , such an amazing language .

Marking my level of English in reading ,writing speaking and listening from 1 to 10 ,it is objective to mark are 6.5, 6, 6 and 7

approximately . In terms of the motivation to study , economy is the most important factor , the reason is that the competition in the

society is very fierce and it is hard to find a job opportunity, the result is that harder I work and higher salaries I get .

As for the time management skills , I will make a plan and a timetable first, taking rest time and study time in balance , arranging every

task proper time . Stress is normal thing in life ,everyone has the different stress, almost stress are come from study for us students , but

stress also can be a kind of motivation if people change the way of thinking . Stress will help people to overcome the difficulties which

people afraid of and to be better in the peer competitions
