  • teenagers I guess because I usually teach teenagers

  • and I love interacting with them

  • because I love English.

  • I think English is a beautiful language.

  • Well! Don't... first don't get discouraged

  • because it can be hard at times

  • because we always say for some reason people

  • always say this that English is a easy language I don't think it's that easy.

  • So motivation - don't get discouraged

  • and try to surround yourself with English like

  • and try to talk to English speakers.

  • Try to listen to the radio.

  • Try to watch TV.

  • Just try to create an English speaking environment.
