Practice Makes Perfect
There is an old saying itl China: Practice makes perfect. Practice is a means and perfect is a goal. Only when you do more practice can you make things perfect. This is true not only in our learning but also in other walks of life. Take the study of English for example. Practice enables us to spell words correctly and master the rules of grammar quickly and practice also makes us hecome fluent in speaking and writing. It is ahnost impossible for a person to speak English fluently and accurately without a lot of practice. Another case in point is cooking. A good cook can prepare a delicious meah But you will not be surprised at his performance if you know how much time he has spent practising. Through practice, he then becomes an expert at cooking. It goes without saying that practice makes perfect. Only through practice can one be good at doing things. Since we have realized the importance of practice, why not put it into practice?
It is well known that practice makes perfect. Whatever is worth doing at all is wordl doing well. To do well is to try, try, and try again. That is how I understand "Practice makes perfect."
Take for example the study of English. In the beginning, it seemed hard to me to pronounce each word correctly and to memorize the grammar rules, sentence structures, the whole texts. By reading the texts over and over, listening to the tape again and again, and writing and speaking more and more, I have overcome the difficulties and become more skillful in mastering the language. Nothing is impossihle if you set your mind on it.
Another case in point is my learning to play erhu. The first time I played the musical instrument, it was like sawing wood. The sound annoyed everyone in the house including myself, but I kept at it against the complaints of my family. At last, I made it. Now I can make pleasant music on my erhu.
Experience tells me "Practice makes perfect".
The saying that practice makes perfect means that after you have plenty of practice in what you are doing, you will be perfect in it. He who practices a lot will master the skill more quickly than he who seldom or hardly practices.
For example, when we learn English, we have to learn grammar, words, expressions and so on. The most important thing may be how to put what we have learned into practice. If you only learn the grammar rules by heart and dont do enough exercises, it is certain that you cant understand them perfectly. But if you practice a lot, maybe you will understand them more deeply and you can find some good methods of applying them. Memorizing English words whenever time permits, we can easily memorize them and can even find a way to memorize them more quickly.
There is another example. A famous singer can sing very well. Of course, his talent is very important, but practice is necessary. It is necessary to practice to make the singer sing better and better.
It is evident that practice is important for everybody. If you want to improve your study and work, you should remember that practice makes perfect.
Practice makes perfect. This self-evident proverb means doing something repeatedly is the only way to become very good at it. That is to say, practice makes a difference between an inferior performance and a perfect one.
Learning a foreign language like English is a case in point. You can take in a lot of information about it, such as its pronunciation, vocabulary, sentence structures, grammatical rules, idioms, and usages, but all these tend to quickly escape from your memory. Therefore, you must practise listening, reading, speaking and writing so as to remember them and become fluent in the language.
The truth represented by “practice makes perfect” can also be found in other areas. A skillful tailor is one who has certainly made a large variety of clothes, while a competent surgeon is one who has performed a great number of operations. Engage yourself in performing tasks instead of just learning about them, and you will learn to become a perfect doer.
The well known proverb "Practice makes perfect." means that when we set about a difficult task or begin to learn something new, we need to practice constantly. Getting familiar with something is merely the first step. Only through constant practice can we get to know how each parts are related and only in this way can we become skilled in doing the work and in the end have a better command of it.
Many examples can be cited to illustrate this fact. Learning to write English composition is a good case in point. Many students complain that writing in English is really a great problem for them. But do you notice how often they practiced writing English compositions in their daily life? If they fail to follow what the proverb says, if they don＇t write regularly in English, how can they expect to improve their writing?
Let＇s take playing piano as another example. Many want to be famous pianists, but few know the road to success. How can oneplay the piano wonderfully if he only practices it once inawhile. The road to success is filled with hard work. Only when one persists in practicing hour after hour, day after day can he get to the peak of success.
There are other countless examples in our daily life, but I think the above mentioned are evident enough to illustrate the truth of the proverb. We ought to keep the proverb in mind whenever we do something new and difficult.
Appropriate Practice Makes Perfect
There is a universal saying that practice makes perfect, however I think appropriate practice makes perfect considering to training technique, training volume and other reasons. Practice can make you remember and understand something new, but inappropriate practice may make your effort useless or even lead you to the opposite direction. Therefore, before your practice, you should think about whether your method, plan are appropriate or not. Only the appropriate method and plan help you get what you wish. Practicing oral English, for instance, if you say a word in a poor pronunciation, no matter how many times you say it, you will never pronounce it correctly.
The famous saying Practice makes perfect is widely accepted today. It means if we practice unfamiliar things again and again, well be able to perform it perfectly.
The practice of learning English is a good example. We are not living in an English speaking country. So, in order to learn it well, we need extra practice, such as reading English books, going to English corners, or communicating with foreigners. Only sitting at the desk cannot lead to the mastery of English.
As another example, if we want to be skilled in using the computer, we also need to practice using it. Some children become little experts in computer, just because they play with it everyday. On the contrary, if we just stick to books, we will still feel confused when using computers. Judging from the evidence offered, we might safely draw the conclusion that practice makes perfect.
