My experience in learning English
Hello my lovely blog's friends,
Hope you are well and glad of coming weekend!
Today I would like to discover you my experience in learning English.
The first knowledge I got at high school when was a child and then continued learning at the University. English course took just 2 years at University and I had to learn English with some private teachers and language schools in Moscow. Here are working a lot of Russian teachers who knows English well and may teach students. They have a special education and have years of practice. But after 1-2 teachers I decided to try an native English speaking teacher. I found schooI in Moscow where taught teachers from the UK, the USA and Canada. I was very happy with my first English speaking teacher. He was from the USA and had a talent to teach language. He made interesting, informative and fun lessons. So, we had a very good group of students there. After a while (about 2-3 months) the teacher was changed on another teacher because a special methodology. Schools does changes of teachers every 8-12 weeks for students practice. It means students should understand not the only one English speaking person. You must to have experience to speak and to understand English language at all. You know that each country and often regions in one country have different language accent and some times people from one region can't understand people from another. By the way both regions speak English. So with the new teacher we lost our interest to learn English because she taught very boring and was pretty strict to adults people as we were. The last 2-3 years my private teacher was a girl who is Russian but used to live in the USA for a long time. So she has a very good level of English and is good in teaching.
The greatest experience I got last year when took English Course in Ireland for 8 weeks. It was fantastic! No one Russian at school. I lived in one nice & friendly family near the city center. International classes. There were students from Italy, Brazil, North Korea, China, Germany, Spain, Israel, France, Chech Republic.I was lucky and met very professional teachers with a good sense of humor. After lessons in the morning we had cultural programme and went to the historical places. It was supported by a woman who is an professional gide and knows Irish history very well. So, I spent a whole time spoke in English.The first two weeks were difficult for me. All tenses and conditions mixed in me heard :) and I feel like a baby. Understood a lot but couldn't speak right...:) I was very tired every day and went to bed at about 9 pm. After 3 weeks I started be more quieted and confident myself. After day's programme we went to the cinema or to the pub or to the disco. And speak, speak, speak. Made mistakes and understood that it was a mistake after a while.That is getting of some new experience! Never forget it!
I love to remember how my Irish adventure was because sure it was a great time in my life!
I improved my English I try do not forget my practice. Speak English at work and send you my reports every day with pleasure!:)

Have a great weekend!
