（十一）【2020 •安徽省】When I was 12 years old, my mother sent me to a Chinese school in California. I 11 spending my Saturdays in a three-hour Chinese class. I thought it was difficult and boring.
However, my mum thought that I should develop and improve(提高) my Chinese 12 skills. I seemed to know it would do me good in future, but at that time I couldn't realize the 13 of learning a second language.
Many years later, I had a 14 to work in Asia. I chose China mainly because I learned Chinese when I was 15 .However, I still wondered if I could 16 street signs, buy food and talk to people there.
Shortly after I arrived in China, my Chinese language 17 came back soon and improved 18 . A long time ago, I wanted to give up 19 Chinese. Luckily, my mum encouraged me and stopped that from happening. I’m 20 that the Chinese language has helped me a lot in different ways. My life is getting more and more colourful.
