Learners helping learners
This is a series of posts in which I have asked learners ten questions about learning English. I hope that the answers will inspire other learners and give them some new ideas.
Tanja from Germany
1. Which country are you from?
I come from Germany.
2. Why is it important for you to be able to speak English?
When I started working I translated texts from German into English and therefore it was important for me to have a good level of English.
Now I’m still thinking about working with languages so it still continues to be important for me to keep a high level of English.
3. Have you ever been to England? If so, where did you go and what did you do?
Yes, I have been to England – I went to Tonbridge, Kent to improve my English. I participated in a one to one course.
4. Where do you go to find information in English? This could be written or audio information.
5. Do you have a favourite book or song in English?
From a friend of mine I borrowed “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien – and I really liked reading it, although it sometimes wasn’t that easy. I also liked the Harry Potter books.
h3> 6..Do you have any friends or tandem partners with whom you can practise your English? If so, where did you find them?
I found some of my friends through English groups on Facebook or in mailing lists.
7. If you could change one thing about the English language, what would it be?
Well, I don’t know… The tenses are quite difficult.
8. Which online dictionary do you use?
9. Do you know any good Facebook pages for English learners?
I often look at English with Kirsty on Facebook.
10. How do you make sure that you remember new words?
I’m learning with flashcards and I also read many different texts where I look up the words on the internet
