    Default Why I learn English the language I hate

    Frankly, I hate English! What a language this is? Most of words in English contain several or even many meanings. Facility, for example, while I check dictionary, there are so many meaning whose are totally irrelevant, which could be easy, simple, dexterity, proficiency, convenient, agility, equipment and tool! So many words each containing ikla meaning combined in Facility.
    Then, Right, for example, also means power, justice, and a direction.
    Whereas in my language, each word contain one meaning, even if there are more than one, whose are relevant.

    But I like to learn English, not like the language, because although my English is really poor, yes I know how bad my English it is while I speak English to English, they always understand what I want to express. When I ask them how do they feel my English, they always say "your English is good, even better than students in Englsih country". Wow my God, that makes me feeling better I like the language when I use it anyone can understand. Making others understand me, that is a language fundamentally working for I think.
    The English as a language to me is an amazing tool, looks like everyone can use it in own way. This is the most open language compare with others I guess.

    Some one says English is a necessary tool. I agree with him saying this, but since so many translators in this world, I think if I want to know what are some English saying or writing, I can use translator, so I don't want to make learning English so utilitariant, I come here learn English just for fun, for practising. Sadly my family has no money to provide me go to college, my parents are not speaking English, so my circumstances are not good for learning English thnks to internet, I found this forum that is a good platform for my purpose. Maybe you will come to help me? I wish.

    The most important thing in learning a foreign language is to have a great wish and never use the words like:hate, difficult, boring.... If you work a little bit harder you'll see how interesting and enjoyable process is learning English.
    I enjoy teaching English and I hope you'll enjoy learning it. Cheers!

    Right!!!

    I love learning English and I take every opportunity to use it. When I started learning it, though we study it in school I haven't got must interest in it as today, I was working in a restaurant as a crew when I committed myself to learn it. I looked like a fool to my crew mates for I kept trying to speak in English though it was very difficult for me and that my regional accent is very audible. That was two years ago. And months ago, I met my supervisor in the street and noticed such improvement in me. Now, I am teaching basic English to Koreans and is learning from it as well... I'm convinced there's still a lot more to learn in English!!! I even wonder when it will stop...

    For Harry, "English is worth dying for!" (a famous line used by a national hero of the Philippines, "The Filipino is worth dying for!")

    You seem to love English so much...
