I'm first!

I've been trying to improve my English through different modes of learning, I attend classes at YouMove English School, I've watched several series lately, like " Supernatural, Lost... " Always I can I'm listening to podcast " Flatmates " and I pratice my writing and reading with my friend on the internet and every day all day long I'm here at forúm EE.

I'm not improve my speaking yet, I'm very shy... that's so hard for me to do it, sometimes I talk to myself... I'm getting crazy!

Cheers! In special to Flávia.

I've trying improve my English skills through these things:

- I attend classes at SENAC School;
- I watch films series in English at least three times a week;
- I always listen to podcasts - One of I really enjoy listening is Spark from CBC (it's Canadian);
- I practice conversation with a friend on the internet by email and msn,
- I participate in the EE forum and EE Chat.
- I surf on the net looking for good videos and tips to improve my English as well.

By the way, Flavia you had a great idea in ask to everyone about our habilities on this beautiful language.

I'd forgotten other thing I do to improve my English is collect phrases and expressions in a notebook. Doing this, I can improve my writing, vocabulary and speaking, because I use them to read aloud. I collect them in movies, series, English Experts blog and others great blogs.

If you wanna know more about this kind of study, I can ask me:

( first post in this let's go.)

I improve my english:

-Watching movies and series like Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural, blablabla, always in english but with subtitles (cause I'm still learning some vocabulary)
-Listening to music and singing with the lyrics that I take on the net... and also trying to translate it 'cause I like to know what I'm singing.
-Participating of many internationals websites, like DeviantArt, it's an art website and there we meet a lot of people around the whole world, so I improved my english a lot talking with people who commented my pictures and stuff.
-Talking in english with some friends.
-Being an english teacher... well my english skills aren't perfect, I mean... I'm not so good in english, I got a lot of dificults in vocabulary and speaking fluently ahhh and also in prepositions as you can see... but I'm very good with grammar and I teach the first module of an english school here in SP. students love the way I teach because I'm patient and dynamic and I think i was born with that feeling of being a teacher, and I'm just 19 years old, but I teach people like 50 years old and they're learning well. =P

That's it. I love this forum, I've been coming here for a few months but this is the first time I decided to post something. Congratz to the staff team! This forum helps a lot! ;)
