Hi, I have some suggestions for you. But, let's wait for other suggestions
"My name is Sandra. I´m from Brazil. I have a Master Degree in Education.
I´ve been studying English to read scientific articles, books, news, and documentaries about some areas such as education, politics, philosophy, and languages.
I’m taking an English course here in Brazil. I'm at an intermediate level, but I have a lot of difficulty with listening activities. So, I want to take this course in order to improve my listening skills.
Yes, I have taken another course here. Although I had liked it, I didn´t finish it because the difficulty level was too high for me, so I gave up. Now I'm taking a more basic course because I think if I start by the beginning I can learn better. After all, all learning takes place by building on what you know.
(sorry, what do you mean with this sentence in italic?)
When I have a free time I enjoy running, going out to dinner with my husband and playing English games on my cell phone. Lately, I have been trying to think in English as much as possible, and although I cannot always remember all the words I keep trying. Finally, I hope I’ll be able to learn a lot with this course."
