Hi, there! I’m Adinda.
I have many stories to tell you about how I end up loving English as much as I love Indonesian. However, I’m sure that this description won’t fit it all. Thus, here is what I want to say:
Never be afraid of learning, because your fear will lead you nowhere. I pushed my limit in 2019 when I got a scholarship for a dual-degree program between Indonesia and Taiwan; so, I went and it caused me taking a Master of Humanities degree and a Master of Arts degree back home. Living in Taiwan for a year during 2019 brought me so much valuable experiences that I won’t trade for anything. Why? Because with my experiences in teaching English in Indonesia, in Taiwan, I could get an opportunity to teach and encourage Taiwanese and other international students to speak English through a program called EZ TALK. Well… some of them are like you (and me, at the beginning). They were afraid of being judged using wrong tenses, wrong dictions, or wrong pronunciations. Let me tell you one thing; those don’t matter when it comes to speaking. What matters is that you are brave and that’s more than enough!
Now, if you want us to exchange our stories and learning English through it, I’m more than welcome! Let’s learn and improve our skills together!
