Hi Gajunia's,

It's one of my first post on this website and I have to say I'm not used to do that ...
I think there is no secret for foreign language, only training/practice exercices can make us better ! By my side, I'm working with international people but it's really limitated to "business" vocabulary and so I'm losing day by day all my vocabulary ! It's one of the reason of my presence here ...

I hope you will succeed, but it seems to me you are a long way ahead of me ... in terms of english skills Emotion: big smile

Bye and Good luck Emotion: wink
Hi,

Just use our new search engine which will lead you to your target. You find it in the upper-right corner. Just type in "How to improve my english" and you will find lots of useful threads that tell you how to improve your spoken/grammatical... english and how to make progress.
Don't feel ashamed to talk to this british guy, it's the best thing that can happen if you can talk to a native speaker regularly, use that chance !

thank you for gave me advice! can i have a opinion from you about my lovelife condtion?

Emotion: big smile my bf is japanese guy,his mariage, he has 2 kid one from phil. and one from colombia!

do you think i can still keep it him? even though he hurting me too much?

anyway i bought book yesterday, its about english grammar and vocabolary. but when i tried to read it lastnight i fall aslept! and i did not remember even one sentence there!

what do you think is the best one i can do, reading a book or watching english movie perhaps?
Reading and watching english films are good methods. Through reading a suspenseful book for instance, you enhance your english comprehension and through watching movies you improve your spoken english. Just try to immitate the way the speaker stresses the words and be sure you are watching with subtitles if you don't understand the plot.
Did you buy an advanced grammar book? Or one that fits to your english level. I'm in possession of an advanced one and I understand nearly everything. Maybe that's because of my attitude to english. I really want to learn the language because it helps me in my future life. Just tell yourself that it's important that you learn english. Learning will be easier for you if you combine different methods of learning. For example watching a film, afterwards reading some pages in an english book and the next morning, practicing some grammar.

Well, I don't want to give you a false advice about your love life. Did he got two children despite of you beeing his girlfriend? If that would be the case I would be really sad. But you should know best what's right and what's wrong.
Hello Gajunia,
Alex-93be sure you are watching with subtitles if you don't understand the plot.
Well, i am agreed with what Alex has said. Honestly, it worked well for me before; i used to watch English movies with English subtitles. Emotion: smile

And, if you're a little bit shy to directly talk and have a conversation in English with others, i have this humble suggestion; simply keep on chatting in English (either with native or non-native English speakers) on the internet. (you can remain as an anonymous or use whatever nicknames that you want)

you might say, speaking and typing during chatting (on the internet) are not the same. yeah, it's kinda true. :-/ but, as for me, i have been chatting in English for so many years now (either with my foreign or local friends). and, voila! i have no ideas how and when i have developed my confidence and all those "chatting skills" in my daily conversations with friends (in my real life). now, even my brain is "thinking" in English, how funny! he he. Emotion: stick out tongue

and, if you want to be confident during conversing in English - don't mind too much about being perfect from making any grammatical mistakes. By time, you'll gradually learn more about all those grammar thingy and other related stuffs. Simply have fun in your conversations! cheers. Emotion: rock

ahh dear so why don't you take courses by talking the English language fluently or maybe why don't you watch TV English films ??? i could help you so much ... ah and what about reading English contexts either in the internet or in the books it doesn't matter ... ahh chatting and trying to live abroad in a country which its official language or the main language in it is English language , so you can associate its people i think i could help you ....

Well, chatting might improve your english vocab knowledge and your conversational skills a lot. But, do you do any progresss in spoken english? If you want to improve your spoken english it's suitable to converse with either a native speaker or a proficient speaker.
I think theres one point you've to break through and then you have enough confidence.
hello Alex,
Alex-93Well, chatting might improve your english vocab knowledge and your conversational skills a lot. But, do you do any progresss in spoken english?
as for me, yes. Simply use that "conversational skills" that you have acquired from "chatting on the internet" into your daily conversations, you'll gradually improve in your spoken english.
Alex-93If you want to improve your spoken english it's suitable to converse with either a native speaker or a proficient speaker.
yes, it's true. but, most of the time, i don't think native english speakers could be easily found at any non-English countries.
Alex-93I think theres one point you've to break through and then you have enough confidence.
psychologically speaking, if people keep on thinking that they have to breach and reach a certain point or level to be confident, they will never be. to be confident is not to keep on consciously thinking how and when they will become confident.

and, personally, i don't think people will ever have "enough confidence" - it's subjective and unmeasurable. Emotion: smile

...

after all, that's merely my humble suggestion. if Gajunia thinks it's something that's good to put into practice, do it - if not, then don't. cheers. Emotion: rock
