Have you ever wondered, you want to learn a new language but feel daunted or unsure where to begin? Ten years ago, I was not fluent in English speaking or writing, made loads of mistakes and sometimes my sentences did not make any sense at all. However, I believe that you don’t need some special talent or a language gene to learn anything new in your life. You just need passion and will to accomplish anything in your life. My old friends, who know me since my childhood, now ask me how you make that happened? How is your English now making sense? Although it still has loads of grammatical errors and needs two to three proof-read cycles. My answer to them always the same, I gave myself time.
