I learned it the fun way,
GAMES and movies,
In belgium, outside movies aren't translated (except those for small children) so we see a lot of american and british movies in English.
And I happen to play console games occasionnally and there often isn't a "Dutch" option in the game so I'm forced to play it English.
oh yeah, almost forgot, at school I learned some important basics, like how to speak proper english and the tenses, structures.
Though I learned most of my English via games and movies.
Actually I think English is the easiest language, very structural.
Well i'm from England so i think you can guess how I learned to speak English! I want to take German and Italian when the Italian teacher comes back. I was also top in the class at french, but I didn't take it as a GCSE because it was getting boring and one year was enough. Permalink
I never learned English ..... Jokes aside, my first English lessons gave me Mickey Mouse on videotapes of Magic English, then I started going to school and still study English, and most web sites that frequent are British or American . I write strange ? You should hear my accent! Permalink
