Languages and Me, Part 1

Some people learn foreign languages ​​for years, for others enough a few months. Why? On what it depends?

My acquaintance with English began in the third grade. My mother decided that if I started earlier it would be better and she found a teacher for me. I learned the alphabet, some songs, and poems, and phrases, but I could not understand even basic grammar.

Then in the fifth grade, English classes started at school. Honestly, my teacher was not very good, but I went to the tutor a few years. In ninth grade, I passed the exam for the highest score. But frankly, it doesn't mean that I knew English well.

Now I'm in my second year at university. I have three classes of English per week - more than students at many and many other universities (although my specialty is not related to languages). In sum, I learn English for about 9 years... That's a lot, really a lot. But even now I can not say that I know it well. Of course, I know the grammar, I can talk to some of the topics, etc. But it's very little.

And it's not only my problem, many people have the same. So what's the deal?

(to be continued)


I'm so lazy and I'm so ashamed of this... I wanted to write a blog to practice English. But I do not write and do not practice any other way. This is awful. :(

I completely forgot about my blog. However, I do not have time to write here. Studying and other things...
Two days ago, we have a new neighbor in the dorm. It was an exchange. Very nice girl. We celebrated her move with pizza, sushi and Martini.
There were no photos so long...

Day 4

We were in the village. My grandmother lives there. Some time ago, my grandfather and his sister lived there, too. But they died.
I never love our village a lot, but sometimes I like to go there. In childhood I did this quite often. Now I feel a nostalgia there.
My grandma has 9 cats and 2 dog now. And 2 hens with a cock, and bees.
Our house is old, my great-grandfather built it. Mother wants to make repairs but it's very expensive.
Everything is difficult.
