I need to practice English
Hello everyone: I am Erika from Colombia, I arrived in the United States a couple of months ago and I need to learn and practice English, I live in Miami and it is very difficult to practice here, but it is very important for any job, I am very frustrated, someone who want to practice with me english? thanks.
Hola! Yo también soy de Colombia...Would you like practice english with me?
I see you are writing very good in English, it's a good starting line. Most of our companions want to learn as well, but they write Spanish.
Why is it so dificult in Miami to practice English? Everybody speaks Spanish?
Hello alexandre, thank you.
in Miami, everyone speaks Spanish, but when you apply for a job, the first requirement is to speak English fluently :( I am in the process of learning how to speak better English, but I still don't have a fluent conversation, I am working as a banquet server and I can practice something there but it is not enough.
Perhaps you would like as I do:
VOA Voice of America. It's interesting, sometimes funny and every day new articles. And the most important thing, they last between 6 and 12 minutes so it's not boring you. There are 3 levels for the speed of speaking and contents.
Today I had been waiting in the docor's office and with my phone I listened to four articles and reading at he same time. I learned something new.
The direction is:" learningenglish.voanews.com " (it's without the www at the begining. I hope you understand my (bad) English!
At home I use the PC and on the road my phone. PC is much better I think.
I would like teaching you to speak English, I'm native from Spain. I could teach you a lot of things about English language, but I prefer you learn by this:<pre>
If you want to be better your pronunciation, I recommend you this page: https://lyricstraining.com/
Good luck in your life in Miami!
P.D: Si hay algún error en mi inglés escrito, por favor sentíos libres de corregirme, así podré ir mejorando cada día. ;-)
