Congratulations! You have finished high school and are looking forward to the rest of your professional life and training – starting with getting into college. If you do decide to study at a university, you will become one of millions of other individuals who tie their hopes, dreams, and goals to attaining a degree.
However, applying to a college to study any discipline is no stroll in the park. You would be competing with other applicants (including foreign students) for limited admission spaces. You would need to field your A game, and that means having stellar results, appropriate documentation as well as solid references. To get a head start, you need to remember something we’ll call Early Action Application….
Signing up for classes is probably one of the most nerve-wracking activities you’ll have to deal with in college. There are a lot of course offerings, and thousands of students will be compelled to get them. As a result, it’s often an all-out war to get the classes you really want.
You’ll have to count yourself lucky if you’re fortunate enough to obtain the first set of registration slots. Those who don’t, will have to deal with the anxiety of waiting to see if the classes they want get filled up before they even get a chance at registration….

Just like Xie Na did, when in July 2013 she attended Boston University’s Center for English Language & Orientation Programs (CELOP) for a 6-week program to improve her English skills.

Let’s agree that Chinese and English are two totally different languages – pronunciation, grammar, written form, expressions – it all differs. From a broader perspective, there are some major differences between.
- English emphasizes the structure, while Chinese focuses on the meaning. In English, it is very common to see one long sentence with a long modifier, and pronouns like “we”, “she”, “they” in addition to “that” and “which”, to avoid recurrences. The sentence could be very long and complicated, this is especially obvious in legal articles. However, in the Chinese language, generally sentences are shorter and even if it’s a long sentence, it would be divided into several short sentences or phrases by comma.
Let’s face it, China is a big mobile nation. Nowadays, you can’t imagine a Chinese without a bunch of applications at the palm of their hand. The study shows that in 2017 the average mobile internet user had 40 apps installed on their phone. There are apps virtually for any need: effective online shopping can be conducted with TaoBao and Alipay, social interaction is impossible without WeChat, and listening to music is way more enjoyable with Tik Tok.
The sphere of education hasn’t skipped this trend. There are a lot of apps that can make Chinese students’ English study become more convenient. We’ve come up with the list of 5 most effective and popular apps ready for download right now.
