I am interested in the language as such and in English culture. Besides, it significantly simplifies and expands my access to information, and promotes my personal development. What opportunities do you mean?

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/09/16 21:16, 2019/09/16 22:37

As you say, English culture open opportunities for self education and personal development. I started English some years ago because a wanted to changed my job but now i'm learning English because it's really interesting. Are mainly interesting UK or USA culture?

Frankly speaking, I don't distinguish well between English and American cultures. When reading I can't tell what culture one or another text represents. But I can clearly distinguish their accents. What ways of learning English do you use?

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/10/08 07:48, 2019/10/08 09:47

I try wath videos in YouTube,it's political news or sport news, or something about health life. And sometimes i listen to podcasts in VKontakte. I think for the best language learning it is necessary to speak it constantly, but I do not have such an opportunity.What do you use?

I watch Youtube in English, too. I also read various articles on English grammar and participate sometimes in discussions on English-language forums, such as UsingEnglish.com and WordReference.com.. I believe it's a great opportunity to improve your English and reduce the anxiety about communicating with native speakers. What do you think?

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/10/15 10:19

Yeah, it's really cool. A hadn't known about these forums before you wrote. next month ago i watched one video in YouTube about conversation apps, after that i text with native people in “GoSpeaky”. Good app in which you can communicate with people from around the world and sometimes, a lot of people as it turned out to learn Russian and you can help each other

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/10/15 10:21

Do you have friends who live abroad?

AlexAlex, 2019/10/16 21:18

One of my classmates lives in the USA, but we haven't talked for a long time. What are the most difficult things for you about learning English?

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/10/21 08:10

I think,save motivation for learning English it's most difficult all time. when you see your target it's really cook and you see that target approaches. But sometimes you don't see light in the end of a tunnel. It's really sad and at that moments you need to have strong motivation to continue training. Do you want pass English international exams?

AlexAlex, 2019/10/23 20:42, 2019/10/23 22:53

I don't have such plans because I see no need for that. And you?

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/10/27 09:31

i thought about it, but ti's really far target. If you think about emigration the axam is possible, but other case it no need. did English knowledge need to you work?

AlexAlex, 2019/10/28 21:28, 2019/10/28 21:35

English is not of vital importance for my work and everyday life so far. But we'll see how things go. What is the most difficult topic in English grammar for you?

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/10/31 10:14

The most English grammar topic it aspectual-temporal forms of a verb, because usually understanding a text completely depends of time a verb. What about you?

AlexAlex, 2019/11/01 20:52

Article usage can be quite tricky sometimes. English collocations are also a challenge for me. I can easily write something both grammatical and unnatural to native speakers. How much time do you spend a week learning English?

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/11/02 15:05

Usually i learn English fifteen or thirty minutes every day, because it's a very good time, you don't tired and you can deep dive in English. I did read article about habits and i try to inculcate the habit of study English. Do you watch English films?

AlexAlex, 2019/11/02 21:12

Sure I do, because they contain many examples of connected speech. I had tried different combinations: with translation and subtitles, with subtitles and without translation, and so on. But in the end, I decided on the mode without translation and with English subtitles. How do you watch movies?

igor-frolovigor-frolov, 2019/11/10 10:09

Yes, i do this similarly. i tryed to read books witn parallel translation, the book name “The adventure of the blue carbuncle” it's really interesting book. Do you read english books?

AlexAlex, 2019/11/11 20:27

I do. The last one I read was “The Maltese Falcon” by Dashiell Hammett. What was the last book or article you read?

It was nice talking to you. Bye!
