  My Views on Receiving Education
  In my early years, I did not see the value of education.
  When I was going on thirteen, I started to run my own shop. From then on, I worked hard to become a successful businessman.
  One day I realized the importance of the English language in the business world and started taking night classes.
  I was able to communicate well with foreign customers after two years of English study. But I started to feel that, in the long run, having a limited knowledge of English was not enough to make my business successful. I knew that only a well- rounded education could guarantee my success in the future.
  When I was eighteen, I had to make a decision to continue doing business or go back to school. There was one obstacle keeping me from getting an advanced education. I had only completed elementary school up to that point. I then went back to senior high school after four months of tutoring in different subjects. Being at school for the first time after so many years was somewhat embarrassing because my classmates were at least two or three years younger than I. I concluded that my age did not matter. The important thing was getting into college.
  I took the College Entrance Exams. Although my math exam result was only one point below the required score. I never gave up hope. The following year, I took it again and received the highest score in my city. Achieving such an amazing result gave me encouragement and courage necessary to continue my education to the next step.
  I am now in my second year of college and know that it is never too late to learn. My passion for studying and improving myself will never come to a halt as long as I continue to live.
  “Live and Learn.” is the motto I have adopted. I believe with an education I will succeed. So, if you are wondering whether education is important, don’t hesitate a moment to step up and seize the opportunity.
  我对教育的看法
  在我小的时候,我不觉得教育有什么价值。在13岁的时候,我开始经营我自己的商店。从那时开始,我为成为一个成功的商人而努力工作。
  一天,我意识到了英语对做生意的重要性并且开始上夜校。
  在经过两年的英语学习之后,我已经能够很流利的和外国顾客交流。但我逐渐意识到,从长远来看,我现在仅有的英语知识无法使我的生意蓬勃发展。我知道只有渊博的知识是我未来成功的保证。
  18岁的时候,我必须在继续从商和重新回学校学习之间做出选择。当时我仅有的小学学历成为我接受高等教育的一大障碍。经过4个月各门功课的恶补,我又回到了高中。多年后再次回到学校,让我有些尴尬。因为我的同班同学至少比我小2至3岁。然而在我看来,年龄不是问题,重要的是能上大学。
  我参加了高考。虽然我的数学只比分数线低了一分。但我没有放弃。第二年,我又参加了高考并取得了当地的第一名。得到这样一个令人欣喜的结果,给了我进一步深造的动力和胆量。
  现在,我上大学二年级,也知道学无止境。只要我活者,我对学习和自我充实的热情就不会减退。
  “活到老,学到老”是我的座右铭。我坚信只有学习才会使我成功。因此,如果你对接受教育的重要性有所怀疑,不要犹豫,勇敢的迈出第一步,这样幸运之神便会光顾你。
