How I started to Learn English

How I started to Learn English

English is an international language and obviously, all of us desire to speak fluently. But usually, we don't do anything about this wish but still, some people struggle to speak English. However, as far as I can see, they are not able to accomplish it because we want to be perfect but the universe doesn't allow perfection so we shouldn't care so much about our mistakes when we try to speak. I am going to give you some suggestions related to my experience but before I have to tell you how I started to learn English at first place.

It all starts only two months ago.

I couldn't speak English whole my life but two months ago I said to myself, "You can do it if you really want to do!"

And then, I suddenly realized something.

-First important step of the learning process-

"You must add English to your life."

What does it mean?  Listen to English music, watch English movies, read English news and talk foreign people furthermore use your phone with English language option.

When you see a new word which you don't know the meaning of, take a note. It can be a new phrasal or structure.

-Second important step-

" Don't be afraid, don't be shy. Create a connection."

You shouldn't be shy and afraid. What you should do is go and find somebody who speaks English perfectly or a native speaker and just try to start a conversation with him or her!

But you also should create a connection that you learned new things and you can use your imagination. I mean when you learn new things, it becomes part of the experience of yours.

-Result- : You will be able to speak English like me or furthermore, maybe even better than me.

We couldn't speak English because of the "rote learning". We memorize everything for the exams and then we forget mostly. Now I realize, I am able to speak English but still, I don't prefer to say that it completes my journey. Because there are so many things that we have to learn, thus I think we should say "I speak a little bit of English and I improve my English skills every time!" Of course, there were so many troubles but if I could do that, you can do it too!

You should be willing. And don't ever think about giving up!

And thanks to all the contributors to my learning journey.

Especially, I would like to thank Kerem Orhun Bartan and Ümüt Açar who are Istanbul Arel University Youth Center specialists and also thanks to my girlfriend who always supports me, and all the ENGLİSH TANDEM friends and members!

I’m grateful to English tandem because they helped me to speak English all the time.

I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via: Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com ..,,
