Чужинські слова

Заблукали у роті.

Вчу англійську.

This fall I started to attend two English as a Second Language classes. Why did I do that? Because while I can read and understand decently, every time I try to speak… oh, it’s almost always a disaster.

The reason is that I don’t speak that much – don’t have enough occasions for that even while living in America. Or, to be honest, I don’t have an inclination to look for such occasions, which means I don’t exercise this particular skill as much as I would wish to (I’m starting to sound like one of Jane Austen’s heroin, I know).

The same, by the way, goes for my native Ukrainian. I am a misanthropic introvert (or introverted misanthrope), so I usually don’t speak if I can help it.

So, why am I writing all this? To practice. As my experience shows, you can’t learn something without doing it. And since I started to take my studying seriously, I would like to practice as much as I can. In writing it means that I must write. And what is the best place to write periodically if not one’s personal blog?

So, bear with me or skip this section, I’m lunching this project anyway.

Wish me luck!
