Not this time. I didn't even think about it this time. You were one step ahead of me thinking about it.

Thanks Hardi. I'm happy to know that. :D

I also disliked English when I was at high school because my English at that time was too terrible (English wasn't an important subject at my school). Honestly, I hated the subject of English. As a result, I didn't like my English teachers too. I only liked math and literature.

So you might wonder why I chose English as my major? I really enjoyed the "Cartoon channel" on TV when I was young. Certainly all of those cartoon films were spoken in my mother tongue. But one time, perhaps there was some trouble so the film I liked wasn't translated into Vietnamese. And it was spoken in English. I understood nothing. I was very sad and furious too. I told myself that I had to study English so I could understand what the characters in my favourite cartoon communicated with each other.

I didn't know that the mistake in that cartoon film helped me like English. After a period of learning, I found it quite interesting. But the more I study, the more I feel I'm bad at it. :cry: I couldn't dislike my English teachers then because I had to ask them many things. 8)

I didn't know that it's very hard to be a teacher of English. I feel very sorry when I didn't understand my teachers. :cry: Now I'm a teacher and I know teachers have to suffer much. :roll:

That's "the road" I have known English. Now I like English and want to continue studying it, though, as I said above, the more I study, the more I feel I'm bad at it. It's English that helps me be here today with you and many other friends in the forums. It's English that helps me understand more about other cultures. It's English that now makes me really happy. :D

More you learn, less you know. Once one my friend wanted me to write a encryption script for him. I was never before done something like this. Also I searched some manuals and examples from internet. The more I readed the more paranoid I got. Well I finished that project and I don't have 1000 lock in my apartment front door but..

fortunately I have enough ego, to not worry about my good english.

I disliked school in generally. My dream was farming, I liked to read tractors handbooks, not school books, even if those handbooks was in russian I readed them. I don't understand russian very well, and I not liked to learn it in scool, but if I'm interresed about context in that book, then I don't need even dictionary always.

Arale, that was very interesting. I think most people didn't enjoy English much when they were at school.
The same happened to me but since I was fond of music in English, I had to learn it.
I just couldn't stand signing along with my favorite singer without understanding a thing. So we can say that music helped me get interested in English.

Regarding your poll, I think my English has improved here. Not a lot but at least it's something. :wink:
