Speaking

I majored in Animate because don’t have more choose, you can choose 壁画 but I don’t like art and animation is very interesting so I choose it. In beginning, I know animation from some cartoons, but when I start animation, I know more knowledge about animation. In beginning, we will draw on computer. We used to draw many page on paper to illustrate movement. I feel happy when I complete the animation. It’s much easier to draw on software than paper.

When I graduate I found the animation is not popular in China and most animation popular from Japan. UI design is more easy than to produce animation. UI design is more useful in work. I study new skills when I work. In free time, I would watch movie with my roommate and draw together.

Revised: 

I majored in Animation because I didn’t have many choices. You can choose wall painting but I don’t like art and animation is very interesting so I chose it. In the beginning, I came across/learnt about animation from some cartoons, but when I started studying animation, I knew/learnt more theoretical knowledge about animation. At first, we will draw on the computer. We had to draw many pages on paper to illustrate movement. I felt happy when I completed the animation. It’s much easier to draw on software than paper.

When I graduated I found that animation is not popular in China and most popular animations are from Japan. UI design is easier to produce than animation and it is more useful in work. I learnt new skills when I work. In my free time, I would watch movies with my roommate and also draw together.
