Um guia para quem estuda Inglês Online
Hey guys, how's it going? I hope you all are doing great.
This is the first post of my blog, (1) which is meant to improve my writing skills in English. I've been practicing listening, reading and even a little bit of speaking, but I have kind of left aside writing exercises. This blog will be my tool, writing-wise. In order to improve myself, I need corrections from native speakers of English; it doesn't matter if they are from USA, England, Canada etc. Advanced English speakers, as well as fluent ones, are welcome to help me too.
I usually define my level as upper-intermediate (2), because I'm much closer to the advanced level than to the intermediate one. In order to give you a detailed description of my current linguistic level, I will divide this section into four parts: listening, reading, speaking and writing (3).
This is the skill I spend most of my time working on. People say that the more you listen, the better you will be as a speaker. I totally agree. I listen to a lot of podcasts, movies, TV Shows, music and so on. I always pick materials made by and for native speakers; that's the way I've been getting used to the real English, spoken by real people. In my opinion, the key here is to listen to things I enjoy. I don't usually 'study' the language, I prefer to 'use' it instead.
