Question: How do you evaluate your English learning progress?

- I've been studying English for around three years, but it's seasonal, I often kind of get stuck and give up. After a while I start it all again.
- I use the timetable suggested in this post and once a month I stop to rethink everything I've learned and try to assimilate it better.
- As I attend English classes in a school, I take the tests and receive a grade assessment comparing my development in each semester.

Now it is your turn!

Wow, Leticia! Congrats on your improvement and your learning experience, and thanks for sharing with us.
Glad that your English took a quantum leap, for a very worthy and good reason! Sometimes we need a little push to learn English (or other things).
As they say necessity is the mother of the invention/creativity, it turns out that it is the mother of language learning as well. :-)

My learning is a ramdom thing, and I can say the same about my study scheme (which I don´t advise anyone to follow, ha ha.)
English is a hobby of sorts to me, at the end of the day it´s something that really unwind me.
Anyway, if I had to measure my progress, I could say it have improved a lot in the last ten years or so (remember, I don´t study in a - let´s say - formal way).
For the record, I am not against studying at English schools, I myself took a year-long course and it was conversational (or supposed to be, but at times we switched to Portuguese. More often than not.)
I might have ran the whole gamut of learning English, from bad to passable English, to a feeling of being good at it, to having met the learning plateau, and then to the admission that I don´t know much of it.
But I do like learning things, that keeps me going, it tickles my fancy. I know that there are many things to learn, long road ahead, but I am really glad to get where I am.
In the future, I might to take English classes, sit the CPE, TOELF, what you have...anyway, for the time being I study by myself (taking benefit from the books, magazines, sites, and other tools), and am a regular visitor to this site (and some other educational sites as well).
I am a student that enjoy a continuous learning and to share some my little knowledge with the fellow learners. That´s it, until next time.

Omg! I meant "random thing"! But, like they say, rushing things leads you to making mistakes...

Now, just a little correction Fidalgo, if I may:
I'm new student of English, I have improved much but (or have not made much progress)... I like the English language, so I am going to a language school to learn it.
Aside notes (notas adicionais e parentéticas):

Em português mesmo para facilitar pra você.
1) Nunca diga que não fez progresso, não se venda barato, você fez progresso sim! Uma vez que está se expressando (nós podemos entender o que você quer dizer, só faltou um pouco organizar as ideias e um pouco de gramática). Mas não é fácil escrever, até para nós com alguns anos de estrada, acredite!
2) A palavra "eu" em inglês é sempre grafada em letra maiúscula "I", eis o porquê da edição para "so I am going...", valeu?
Um abraço.
I think I'm doing well, the exercises helped me a lot, ESL audios also improve my English day by day.
I'm at beginner level yet, but I learned very things, words and expressions!
And the EE encouraged me with posts, foruns and other things.. This website is very good for all English levels :)

Yes, Amanda. You have learned a lot of things (I think you didn´t mean "very", a little correction here if I may). Congrats on your writing and your interest for all things English. ;-)
I feel that I've evolved a lot. I start to study English about 3 years. At the begginning I wasn't very committed, but after a while I started to try harder.
I traveled on vacation to Orlando in the USA in my first year of learning English. I didn't know much English, because this, my dad that spoke with people (and he don't speak very well) . But now I think I am able to speak English with people If I go to there again. And thanks to you and many other means I managed to learn a lot.
My English learning process has been gradual especially because I take private classes with a very good teacher who provides not only good materials but also good explanation of grammar focusing on the oral skill and every end of class she guides me on what to do so I never get lost to study by myself.
I do everything she tells me to do and more, I practice a lot, exposed myself to English speakers a lot so I am getting more and more confident.

Glad to know about your learning experience, Ge Rodrigues. Your English is getting good.
I would suggest just some small correction to the part "exposed myself to English speakers a lot so I am getting more and more confident."

It would become something like "I get myself exposed to the language and interaction with English speakers."

If you begin your narrative with the present tense, then it's advisable to stick to it, not swap to the past tense.
All in all, your writing was good, and you made yourself understood in a satisfactory way. You are certainly in the right track.
