Why do I choose English as second language?

Postby pBaL2 » Thu Jan 13, 2005 2:40 pm

Why do I choose English as second language?
I am not an English teacher as many members in this room, as well as not be a foreigner or student at University of Foreign Studies, or some one like that. So I wonder could I have any seat to stand here ;) ? I wonder it after reading some posts from all
I know all of you will say that "no problem" but is it true in your mind?
Any way, I try my best to improve my english, it is not only because of making friend, improving my English skill but also translating and singing English songs..
Yes, When I was a child without being teached English, I like English songs although I didn't understand any word of songs but I thought I will one day. I grow up day after day and realize that I love this language very much although I always tell every body "I dislike learning English; I don't know why? Or just hide my hobby ? I shouldn't do that, should I?
At least, I love English cause I have a chance to meet all of you, understand what you say, discusse every thing without worry being met on the street, hii, at least more , I can smile loudly without being seen by someone's curious eyes.
That's all my own reasons why I love learning English very much
And how abt you?

Those are very good reasons.
If youve done all your learning just as a hobby, without going to any language schools or living in an English speaking country, then I think thats pretty impressive.

I like learning languages too, I guess its my hobby as well :)

Wow, it is a great thing to meet you, pBaL. My reasons are the same as yours. Only a defferent thing is that although i like or not, i also say it straight. I am studying at a college not concerned with English but learning the language is my biggest hobby. I hope oneday i can translate the articles on my major, especially from vietnamese into english. I wish to read english books including both story and science books. I love many english songs too. I like talking to friends throughout the world, discussing everything in english with them. It was strange that i used to dislike english very much, when i was younger. I liked math and once only thought of it. But some events made me care for foreign languages. And among very many interesting languages in the world, i chose english. I started to learn it by myself a year ago. Little by little i really love the language and now i wonder why i used to hate it?

Hi Srin, I agree with you. Of course I take part in some English learning courses with Vietnamese teacher, not at VATC or SITC cause a delicate reason……hii (so forget it like a child, he he ;) )

Hey, sad-girl, would you like to tell us ( all of your friend here) the event can make you take notice of this language.
We are eager to know that cause we are friends and I don’t think you hide it, at least we can share together, I think :laugh

Hehehehe, I used to listen to the Beatles, Bee Gees, Carpenter, the Temptations and so on without understanding their songs.

Actually, the most widely spoken is Chinese. English would be the most used internationally.
