How I have learned English...

by Nguyen Kien

I have been learning ed English since I started to go going to university. English is not the a main subject, so I only studied it for 3 semesters. Most of the students were taught English for 7 or 3 years ago in school, but I was not. Therefore I leaned English by myself and rarely went to English class. The reason for this is that I did not have enough time and I didn't find it useful unuseful.

In Vietnam, English grammar is taught and studied all the time, maybe its even more important than listening and speaking (!). The causes of the reasons for this are that English Study programs were edited by the Ministry of Education, the laziness of teachers, and the underequipped education system; Teachers are in class with only a book and white chalk.

For a in long time, I learned English without listening and watching media. It was easy to pass English exams with over a 7, but I can’t speak sentences fluently and or write any sentences naturally (!).

Fortunately I bought a computer some a few years ago. I was then able I could to learn English via software, English audio files and the Internet.

Most importantly, I surf this site frequently and have learned many useful things.

Despite this, my speaking is still bad, because I have no any friends to practice with together. I have no any chances to open my mouth :)

How to improve English language
by: Mahlet

I have learned English by mingling other foreigners. The reason why I was mingling with them because I felt comfortable, but that comfort hasn't been existed because their English was not a correct sentence structure. That comfort was using just for understanding each other. You need to register a school that English has given as a second language.

English is a difficult language. To learn more English, you have to read any kind of materials such us magazines and novels. In addition, listing music and news. Even though you read and listen all these materials, you have to build self-confidence when you talk.

I am still having a big problem in writing English
Has anyone can advise me what to do?
