Are you in a cram school for English? Why do you need to improve your English in such a short period of time, and what for?
A better test score?
A better school?
Or a better job?
No matter what your short-term goals are, keep in mind that effective communication is the most important skill for English-speakers at workplace and during social interactions today.

The Hollywood Reporter calls it “a bit of legend and magic into history,” 1 the Variety wishes it were “less kitschy and more coherent” but says “the film-making has a raw physicality and crazy conviction it’s hard not to admire,” 2 while the China-friendly media criticize that the Festival “bowed to diplomatic pressure from Taiwan.” 3
Seediq Bale is based on a historical event in Taiwan, but why does this film mean so much to the Taiwanese? And why did the Taiwan-educated director make the film this way?
The Taiwanese film Seediq Bale receives high attention, mixed reviews and even became a political battlefield at the Venice Film Festival 2011. At home in Taiwan, it is highly praised. Both President Ma and Chairwoman Tsai of the largest opposition party saw the movie on Sept. 04.
Ms. Tsai wrote an article on her blog (in Mandarin) the next day, which received 11K Facebook users’ Likes – that is 0.05% of the Taiwan population – in 5 days. Tsai wrote about a short conversation with Director Wei Te-Sheng. She wrote, “I know he cares much more about how the Taiwanese see this film than winning any award. … It is not easy for a Taiwanese to make such a film.” 4
“What is exactly so difficult?” is the question that many international viewers and critics are asking.
