I like English since I was a child. My mother couldn't afford to pay for a course I strove in school! I grew up and decided I wanted to be an English teacher but I had a lot of pressure and chose law. Big mistake!!
Today, I'm finishing the course and can't wait to get into the college of letters...

I got bad grades in school. At best, I have only learned the verb to be and the colors. Because this, I didn't like English for along time. I started in 2009 after my father enroll me on the Engliah's course without I know,I hate it but who said I have a choice? Just one or two years after I began to really like it. Today I love this language, use in my day-to-day, intend to make exchanges in coming years and even laughed a lot with my father because of this story.

Well, I love English! Since I was a child I feel so much enchanted with this language. I'm very musical and I sang songs in English and wanted to learn more about it. So I studied on a school, took lessons on courses and particular teachers. Nowadays I'm studying by myself.

I started studying English when I was 13 years old, in 1997. I kind of got interested because of a friend, who had started language school already. However, my mom was much more concerned about it than me.

I started this adventure when I was 8! I've always enjoyed playing Sonic Games, but I never understood what they say. Since I decided learning, I've been discovering new worlds. It's also required to my current work (webdesigner). And after reading game scripts, I've also tried on musics. It's so amazing! :D

I started because I used to like to read comic books but hadn't money to buy them. Then I found out that I could download them but only in english (there weren't translations from the ones I liked). So I began to study using internet and downloaded lots of courses and methods.

Today I'm studying japanese the same way and for the same reason :D

I started studying English when I went to live in NY in my childhood, I lived there for 5 years and I was fluent in english. Unfortunatly, after I came back to Brazil, I did not practice anymore, I lost interest and I forgot almost 40% of what I knew. I regret a lot not have continued studying an practicing, because if I did, now it would be so much easyer. But now I am trying to get it back toguether using this wonderfull site to study, and I can say it is helping me a lot.

My father was always in love with the language and he was an English speaker therefore. When I was about 5, he introduced some words to me, made me repeat them, put songs for me to listen, and some Disney movies' partially in English. That's how I began to fall in love with English. When I was 8, he put me in an English course and I coursed it for ten years. At the end of it I coursed "teaching course" with the methodology of the course I was in and turned into a teacher.

There's not a day when I'm not in love with the language.

Marcio Barcellos
When I was about 15 I started studies in technology, and all commands were in english. Although I have done some courses, I was used to studying by myself. I have always been delighted with the pronunciation of english in the movies, most of the songs that I've heard were in english, so I learned the lyrics of the songs I liked till get to sing by myself, and I'm always learning.

Gisa Carvalho
Well, I have always liked the English language. My favorite bands are from the U.S.A. and England, this is why I wanted to learn English, to understand what they were singing. Therefore I started my English classes and have been studying the language for four years. So, I have been trying to improve my pronunciation, reading and writing trough e-books, audios and EE, all apart from my regular English class.

See ya! :D
