I am Chinese, I like English very much, I loved booking everyday, but most of my friend think I am stupid, I am very sad of this.

Reading is a really important skill and source of knowledge.
Don't let the (lazy or ill-informed) detractors put you off.

(Learning English here on EEVblog may be misleading sometimes - but it is a fun place to start!  And you can ask questions.)
Don't ask a question if you aren't willing to listen to the answer.

Reading (any kind of subject that could interest you) will help.

If your friends were truly your friends, they would support you.  Knowledge is power and books are a great way to gain knowledge.  Read on, my friend!

Just keep reading.  And the internet provides an amazing source of information that most of us did not have when we were growing up.
And perhaps you should find some more intelligent friends. People who think you are stupid for learning things are not your "friends".

Try reaching out to people who share your interests. When none of your friends are interested in the subjects that you are, it can make you feel isolated. Having people around you that share your interests is an amazingly powerful aid to your own learning, even if they are not more informed than yourself.

Welcome to the EEVBlog community.  :)
It's perfectly acceptable to not know something in the short term. To continue to not know over the long term is just laziness.

wonderful represents a PCB house in Shenzhen.
He has linked it in his second post.

I'm not sure if he has to be past Newbie status before he can link in his profile?
If so, only 3 posts to go.  :)

He also liked English and went out of his way to learn it. Now he is one of the most important people in the planet.

Keep reading. Never stop. Your English is better than my Mandarin. Watch English programming on the Internet. My niece worked and traveled in China. We have CCTV on our televisions here in the USA. Exchange ideas. We learn from you, too!
We are fascinated by Chinese engineering,  especially the Three Ganges River power project. Awesome.

I forgot to tell you something as important as to read all you like: your friends could eventually suggest what you could or could not do but please, take your own decisions.
