    Thinking in English is a dream that many of English learners hope to make it true, because it is the foundation to express your ideas in English freely. For Chinese students, however, to think partially or wholly in English is a difficult task. Yet it does not remain an impossible mission. My experience tells me that one of effective ways to achieve this goal is to read as many as possible original English works.

    Thank you.

    Should "a something" be "something"? Besides, "read in English" would suggest that you read Chinese text in English (C-E translation) as well, different to "read original English articles."

    Rudeness and sarcasm may be self-defeating in a place where people are volunteering to help.
