Yeah, reading posts really helps. (I got better at it, thx SMWC #smw{:TUP:})


Hey man, not everyone is good at their English. I started writing in English almost 10 years ago while being an native English person (am I saying this right?) and to this day i still make my grammar mistakes pretty often.
I'm Polish so this means I'm Slavic. Thus my English isn't perfect. If I were Dutch or German, my English would be 100 times better than this. I learn English by reading English texts, including forum posts. Well, you were right, Koopster! I want to learn extended English in the Middle School.

PS. If there were some mistakes, you can inform me about them.
I have a Discord server as well!

English is an international language

Tbh, I have just learned English by looking at Youtube videos, and since this isnt a very good method for a lot of people, I think you guys should go for a actual English class (if they even have those in China anyway) so that you can learn it better. It might be boring at first, but since English is one of the most spoken languages on the Internet, I'm sure it'll pay off greatly.

that's all really lol

No, an uncanny, artificial construct known "Business English" serves as an international language. If I speak English like I normally do to someone primarily familiar with they above, however, they typically have no clue what the flip I'm going on about. I mean, that's usually the case no matter what, but otherwise it's usually a matter of content rather than form...

I've actually done the same, and it has worked marvelously for me. I do think that a language class is great for getting the basics of a lnaguage down, but to actually get fluent in it, you need to use it in everyday life, and YouTube videos (as well as forum posts) are actually great for that.

If it weren't so cringey, I'd post a link to my Gamespot profile from ten years ago here for reference. That really was some bad English I was using back then.
Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!

Terrible assumption, but I agree with the rest of the post. An English course gives you the basics in baby steps so you get used to it in a very forgiving fashion, and then you have series, games, forums, etc. to polish it.
Most of my languages I learned completely outside of classes. I won't say taking classes is a bad idea--it can help to get feedback and have someone to ask questions to--but I think people tend to overestimate how important it is or to what degree it will help them. If you want to learn a language, you need to study it on your own. Like, get an actual self course (e.g. Assimil or the like) or three, actively practice listening, reading, speaking and writing, and, as suggested above, surround yourself with the language.

Watching news and informational programs is a fantastic way to build your vocabulary, as they tend to cover a wide variety of topics and speak clearly and distinctly yet not stiltedly. Television shows and narrative films may be a little less helpful at first, as they tend to be full of mumbling, incomplete sentences unusual varieties of the language, and in many cases even native speakers more get the general idea of exchanges than pick up every detail of every statement the first time they hear an exchange. At advanced level they can be quite useful, though, as these are the sorts of things one will encounter on the street in real life.

(Don't spend too much time on English, though, especially if you're interested in it for "international" cred rather than out of a genuine interest in the English-speaking world as a distinct cultural entity. It's the language of crumbling empires, really (and your grandkids will be flocking to Spanish), and outside of the English-speaking world, English (or rather its grotesque funhouse mirror doppelgänger) is primarily used by poseurs and people who have nothing of value to say but want to impress the rubes while doing it. And for the sake of snakes baking cupcakes, don't try to force it on every foreigner you encounter in your country, even if they speak the national language just fine, even if they don't speak a word of English in the first place. You'll just look like a dork and make them not want to talk to you at all.)
