The Very Start - [Part I]
During a conversation last week, a friend asked me how I'd started learning English, which gave me the idea for this post.
Well, I started studying English almost five years ago. I took a placement test and I was told I could register to the intermediate level. However, I'd never been to an English course, so how was that even possible? For that answer, we have to rewind another two years.
I had recently discovered American TV series and I enjoyed them, but it wasn't all that special to me, until I met Will & Grace. It was love at first sight! The writing was clever, the characters were flippant yet relatable, there was this whole revolutionary aspect to it (Will was the first leading gay character on prime time TV). I binge-watched the whole eight seasons in a short amount of time. And then, guess what? I re-watched the whole thing over and over.
