Describe something useful you borrowed from others
You should say:
What it was
When you borrowed it
Who you borrowed it from
And explain why you borrowed it
Something useful I borrowed from others was actually an E-R99 Casio electronic dictionary.
I remember I borrowed it from a classmate of mine while I was studying in the third year of my senior high school. At that time, I was busy preparing for the College Entrance Examination and wasn’t so confident with my English subject especially the vocabulary part. I always found it difficult reading through the English passages without looking at the dictionary.
What made me feel bad was that flipping through the paper-edition was really a time-consuming thing. You know, this article is from Laokaoya website, my deskmate Wang Lei noticed my situation, and lent his e-dictionary to me. That was actually the first time that I borrowed something precious from others.
Well, the reason why I borrowed it was that I thought I should try the electronic one at least for once to see if it could really boost my efficiency of study. Another reason why I borrowed it was that I was not so sure about an English item I was looking for at that time and wanted to check the definition out from another version of the dictionary. Well, the reality proved that it worked and I bought the same type of device a week later.
