There is no argument that I am not a walking dictionary. Nor do I absolutely insist that I am a speaker of highly sophisticated choices of vocabulary. Yet, what I do insist is the fact that I don’t have very much difficulty in communicating English. One thing that bothers quite often is the fact that many Koreans in the path of acquiring English try to memorize English words even I haven’t heard..

Many people feel the need to do something about English. I don’t mean frying and eating it. I mean many people feel the need to make advance in its skill. But, only a few take some sort of realistic measurement. In this part 2, I wanna point out the problem of perfectionism that too many Koreans seem to have. Question. When is the best time to start actually doing something about learning or acq..
Why do you think that your English isn’t progressing? Or, at least you feel that you aren’t retaining what you have acquired? Today, let’s look into the part 1 of today’s subject ‘Here & Now’. When I say ‘Here’ here, I mean the close proximity of your life. One of the main reason that you don’t progress with English is because you may be looking for answer at the wrong place.

As difficult as it is to be good in English, let’s take one step at a time. In what sense do you wanna to be good at? Do you wanna write good? Do you wanna speak good? Or, do you wanna have grand-daddy..

I still don't know at this point whether if I should be amongst these word-nerds. But after a short, yet intense, lip-whipping persuasion, I accepted with overflowing honor.
