Ilma Lives in London and Loves English
by Ilma Silva
I am living in England, I need speak English, and I love English Langue, but I do have difficult on to speak and same time to write too.
Thanks for your comments about your journey to learn English. I understand your frustrations. I too have lived abroad and sought to learn a new language. In the past I have focused heavily on speaking and ignored the writing portion of language learning. I felt like it would cause me to mispronounce words and I wanted most of all to have the best accent possible.
In hindsight, I think there is great value in including written practice in your language study. Reading is a great way to expand your vocabulary and to observe grammar used correctly. Writing is an excellent way to practice your new skills while taking time to get the grammar right (or almost right).
I love the fact that you are just jumping in with both feet. Your submission suggests that you are willing to practice the language skills that you have in as many settings as you can. Good for you. Keep practicing in lots of different ways.
I'd love to know more about what you are doing to enhance your language study. Where are you from? Are you studying formally? Or just on your own? Do you work or go to school, or what ways to you interact with native English speakers? In the mean time, I recommend that you:
Talk, talk, talk.
Read, read, read, and
Write, write, write.
Thanks again for your comments and your lovely picture. I love to "meet" other language learners like you. Come back soon and tell us more about your experiences.
