For me, learning a language is also learning its culture, its people. Throughout the years of experience of living, working and studying in Canada and the UK, I’d love to share to my students what it really means to be able to ‘communicate in English’.
I have never undergone a formal English training or education, yet I can achieve a TOEFL score of 627 and IELTS of 7, and was awarded LPDP Scholarship in Durham University, UK, in 2016. From this background of non-formally-educated in English language, I’d like to think that I can relate more to the fellow students out there who don’t want, don’t care, or don’t have time to study the language in a formal style. I will always try to put myself in your shoes, in terms of what have worked for me in the past, what didn’t work, and what I wish I could’ve done diferently.
That being said, I have to emphasize that there is no shortcut to success; there’s no such thing like an absolute guarantee that you’ll be able to speak a foreign language fluently after certain period of time. So, forget about it.
But don’t worry, there are definitely some better ways and more fun ways to achieve that. And that is what I am offering you; better ways and more fun ways to learn English, while incorporating its culture and people, to enrich your understanding of the language.
