Is the best way to forget your mother tongue in studying English?
In my opinion ,we will never forget our mother language entirely at any time even if when studying English.You know ,we born in a non-English enviroment ,so we were deeply influenced by it in our daily life.When you see a thing ,I confirm, the first concept to your mind is not the English meaning but the Chinese .
So I think ,the most important is not to try to forget your mother tongue but to reflect to your mind the both concepts at the same time and connect them .As we all know you can learn one thing in your heart quickly in a certain surrounding which I have refered above——the non-english enviroment. In addition,English is a language full of complicated changes.You must have realized that a Chinese sentence can be expressed in English in many forms.That is to say ,in countries where people speak English ,people usually tell us "what they want to do"or "What is it",for example ,after you finishing your meal in a restaurant, you'better say "Where can I wash my hands"rather than "Where is the loo".Though they all means "请问洗手间在哪里",the former expresses your intention in a circumlocutory way.And which do you think is the better way ?So I think associating Chinese meaning of a thing befittingly is conducive to English studying.
In one word ,the significant thing is when we study English ,we cannot be circumscribed in a implicit thinking ,we should learn how to change baced on initial purpose.
All above is my own experience in my English learning .
Hope to share with yours!!!
