成语故事:熟能生巧 Practice makes perfect

熟能生巧

shú néng shēng qiǎo

Practice makes perfect

1000 years ago during the Northern Song Dynasty, an old oil peddler masterfully poured oil into a gourd and told everybody that practice makes perfect.

Literal meaning: Practice makes perfect

E.g

孰能生巧,你不必担心自己的中文口语,只要勤加练习就好了。

shú néng shēng qiǎo,nǐ bú bì dān xīn zì jǐ de zhōng wén kǒu yǔ,zhī yào qín jiā liàn xí jiù hǎo le。

Practice makes perfect, so you don't need to worry about your spoken Chinese proficiency. All you need to do is to practice more.
