Hello to everybody!
First off all I'd like to thank you the readers of my blogs for their good words and compliments. This one is a great adventure for me. I'd also like to send a message to everyone, sometimes when I have enough time I can do it and sometimes not.
As I already told at the biginning we are a great family and we are all here for the same reason (to learn or to improve our English).
So, this is my topic: Why is so important to learn English for me?
Being honest my reply could be: I don't know!
Sometimes my daughter asks to me the reason because I am so interestend to the English language, and I don't really know that!
Everything started some years ago, when I decided to try. Whitout evening class after work in my countryside I only had the internet resurces, some genuine and some less genuine. Online I found some friends really interested in learning other foreign languages so this was been my luck.
My biggest problem was to find British mother tongue people who were available to practise with me, I needed to listen (to understand slowly and quickly spoken) and to speak because at the beginning my pronunciation was really bad and full of mistakes. I was interested in British accent because the American one was quite complicated for me and with different words.
Luckely I found some friends, important for different reasons. I'll never forget a friend from Estonia (not mother tongue but really helpful for me), from London (that I also met in London during my British holiday), from Cork and from Guilford. Listing this person I don't want to forget others obviously not less important.
After some months of study I could see my first progresses so I decided to do an English course also if it wasn't near my house. The final result was quite good so I had to go in England to crown my dream and this I did, I went to London for a week with all my family.
In London I visited a lot of really interesting places like The Big Ban,
The house of Parliament:
Buckingham Palace, The Westminster Abbey, The S.Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge:
The National Gallery, Madame Tussauds Museum ect.
