Welcome to this site!
My name is Victoria.
I started this blog because I have always enjoyed learning and teaching languages. I do not claim to be perfect in all language aspects, nevertheless, I think that sharing some of my experience and practical advice can help many people. Meanwhile, the feedback from the readers is another opportunity for me to enlarge my knowledge in the language field.
I believe that our childhood is a very important period of our life where we get to know the world and ourselves in it. I also think that in our young age we are naturally inclined towards certain activities and choose them over the others. There are different reasons why it happens, but we definitely know what we like and what we do not. But, even so, we all have great potential to do everything we put our mind to, efforts be made. And we can work on developing this potential at any age.
As a schoolgirl, I was more into languages and literature rather than into math. Looking back, I can say that I was a very diligent student who would always try to do her best in all the subjects. Unfortunately, I did not manage to become best friends with sciences and getting B instead of C in math felt like the greatest accomplishment in that field. However, in the 7th grade I knew for sure that I would connect my life with languages. And I did. I graduated from the department of foreign languages and became an ESL (English as a second language) teacher. Besides English I speak 4 other languages and I hope to increase this number.
The goal of this site is to help people who learn foreign languages. There are many languages, but they all share the same language components. This site is aimed at helping people improve their language skills and master their vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, spelling, listening, reading, speaking and writing. A good grasp of all these aspects serves as a foundation that can encourage the development of one’s language potential.
