because people speak English
I ever read an article about the benefits of bilingual, which makes me overwhelming for the fact that I believe I am a bilingual. After I read the whole text, however, I lost the enthusiasm. It is said that it does not matter how many languages you learn but the depth of another language matters. I have to admit that I only master the listening and speaking of Cantonese although it is my fist language. And I am good at reading, writing, listening and speaking in Mandarin. For English, I can say my reading and listening are much better than writing and speaking. To summarise, despite of using three languages, I only master Mandarin in four modules which are reading, listening, writing and speaking. The beneficial contribution from other two languages is limited according to the depth of language. Thus I think I should enhance the writing and speaking skill in English to become a real bilingual.
