An important decision that
I have made
Making decisions is one of the most important things that we have to do. That is because it has the power of changing the whole course of our lives. As for me, the most important decision I have ever made was to enter the faculty of languages. I have made that decision as I am so interested in studying other people's culture and civilization. I am also fond of translating, writing and reading literary works in various languages.
Being interested in other people's culture and traditions is one of the main reasons that made me choose to enter that faculty of languages. For me, studying languages is considered as a gate through which one is able to discover others' world, and thought. Through language, one can communicate with other people in different parts of the world. On the other hand, one can enjoy visiting the touristic sights of that definite place or country. Visiting libraries and reading books are by all means one of the most beneficial and amazing activities to be practised while in a foreign country.
Apart from that, I have chosen this college, because I adore reading and writing. I like to read several kinds of books; in different fields: politics, literature, religion. I also enjoy reading books that talk about personality and positive thinking, like the one by Stephen R.Covey entitled " Daily reflections for highly effective people". I spend a lot of time translating articles from a certain language to another. I do believe that translation is an art that not every person can handle. It needs: study, knowledge, talent and experience. In addition, writing is my favourite hobby. I write short stories, social and literary articles as well.
Finally, I am certain now that I have made the write choice, as I have a definite and a grand aim to achieve; that is, to master several languages. Besides, I spend my time in doing something I really enjoy. As Anthony Robbins has once said:
"More than anything else, I believe it's our decisions, not the conditions of our lives that determine our destiny".
P.s: Is there any grammatical mistakes ?
Are the ideas consistent and clear ?
