Alfonso Alfonso | 08:55 UK time, Wednesday, 31 August 2011

Hi everyone,
First and foremost, I just want to say thanks to all the BBCLE staff.

I feel, after this experience of being the blogger of the month for August, that my English is coming on in leaps and bounds. The awesome Neil´s bites and pieces on English grammar; indeed, the real drive behind this challenge.

Time is over. At the risk of blowing my own trumpet, overcome the trials and tribulations, just to find out the right word, the exactly statement, when writing my blog, gave more confidence and; consequently, improved my skills to speak and write English in a very accurate way.

I´m still having lots of things to tell about my country, Colombia, were I born and bred. Just for now, watch this.

Thanks pals for your time and patience, when reading my blogs. I did put body and soul into each one.

And bear in mind: Stick to it! Indeed.

All the best,

    Thank you very much indeed to you, Alfonso, even though you drink coffee only one time a day! Anyway, your stories were really interesting, some exotic and some familiar to me - when I was young I read everything about pre-Columbian civilisations... I suppose next time we'll speak English like... native.
    Enjoy and see you soon.
