Sometimes you can describe your feelings towards learning English as a ‘Love/Hate Relationship’…some days you love it (like when you have a good chat with a stranger in English while travelling) and some days you hate it (like when you are nervous during a presentation and just can’t seem to say anything right!). No matter what, you will always have good days and bad days with English, but just remember even if it doesn’t seem like you are getting better – you are!
Now I know all of you have been learning English for a long time, and some of you love it and some of you hate it. No matter your perspective, I hope that this semester will be fun and useful for you. I want you all to relax and feel free to make mistakes and to ask questions – don’t be shy! :)
Here is a silly video to illustrate the importance of learning another language – you never know when you will need it!
1. What is you favourite/least favourite thing about learning English?
2. Have you ever made a funny mistake when you were speaking English?
3. What subject/topic do you wish was taught in English class?
4. If you could learn a language other that English, what language would you want to learn?
