Welcome to the month of August !
I am Kiran Gautam from Nepal.
I am really glad to join this blogger for improving my English communication skill.
At first I would like to thank BBC Learning English Production Team for selecting me as a student blogger for this month of August.
I am totally a beginner. My native language is Nepali. Though I took my higher studies in English medium my English communication skill is not good. English has become very common language. Specially, when we work in a multicultural and multinational working environment it is must. To express myself correctly and to understand others correctly is very important. 5 years ago my friend Swanaam told me to watch TV programmes and listen radio to better my understanding capacity. What he says is the more you listen the more you will understand. Since then I am trying and that has helped me a lot. But still when the time comes for writing I can’t go forward more than a paragraph. About 15 days ago, I was searching audio programme in BBC website, I found English learning programme and this blogger. I read Simon’s blog and comments to that blog too. I also wrote comment on one of the blogs. I found interesting and decided to join this blog. Lucky me I got an opportunity to express myself by writing.
I hope I will get many corrections and suggestions to improve my writing skill from Amy Lightfoot as a teacher blogger for this month.
I was born 28 years before in a small village “Rajhena” of Nepal as a daughter of Mr. Basudev Gautam and Mrs. Bishna Gautam . I was grown up there with my parents and two elder brothers Mr. Navin Gautam and Jivan Gautam. I passed my school leaving certificate from my home town. To study intermediate in Science I came to Kathmandu, capital of Nepal in 1995. At that time we didn’t have college of science and technology in our home town. Since then I am living in Kathmandu. I go to visit my parents once or twice in a year. It’s been 12 years, time is really very short.
I know this month of August will be very short for me.
A warm welcome to all of you in the very first day of this month!
I will try to come up with interesting and informative things in my next blog.
Have a nice weekend!
