When I was learning Portuguese and living in Mozambique, I remember how I spent a huge amount of time in my room, studying and trying to understand the language´s grammar. It was definately a long time and somehow, I never quite got the confidence to start opening my mouth and speak Portuguese to people I met. It is as if I was waiting for one special day when I would reach THAT level and suddenly open my mouth and the language would pour out effortlessly. That day never came.
English is easily a very popular language spoken and heard in many countries. It is, for most travellers, a safety net, a language they can resort to when communication becomes tough. In some cases, the widespread usage of English even gives some travellers the confidence to journey into foreign lands where the main languages are something other than English. So what does it take to learn English and be good at it? Find out more on this blog as I will be sharing tips and resources on how to make it your English teaching and learning project.
