“Learning is a never ending process and it has no limits like age.”
I have been studying English language since my childhood; May be 22 years of English exposure.Even though , I can’t speak English like native speakers; It’s because I was from a environment where people won’t prefer to speak English. I tried talking when I was in college ; but, my classmets used to comment me.
Coming to my failures because of not having proper English (communication skills).
1. I gained good marks only because of my hardwork; but, I came accross people who scored good marks only with their English language skills and smark work. I used to spend alot of time in reading process because I am a hardworker rather than smart worker.
Here, smart work and English language over taked hard work in my case.
2.I didn’t get any job opportunities in campus because I was shy to speak in public.
Here, confidence to speak English came into picture.
3.In abroad, I faced lot of trouble to speak and understand native speakers English.
Here, practice in speaking and listening English came into picture.
One thing I can say , with out proper practice we will forget.That’s why their is a quote “practice makes man perfect”.This is applicable in any field.
Next, things I did after coming to abroad in order to improve myself in language.
1.I started talking English with everyone. Here nobody commented me but encouraged me to speak.That helped me a lot.
Improvement : speaking skills
2.Instead of watching my native language stuff on tv and internet. I started watching English channels and movies.
Improvement : listening skills
3.I started blogging since a week in order to improve my writing skills.
4.I came across ESL classes as a part of Adult Education and am going for it in order to improve my reading and vocabulary skills.
I will explain my ESL classes experience in coming up articles.
Hope this is helpful.
Have a great day.
