Last year, I did not like my English class.
Every class was like a bad dream.
The teacher spoke so quickly that I did not understand her most of the time.
I was afraid to ask questions because of my poor pronunciation.
I just hid behind my textbook and never said anything.
Then one day I watched an English movie called Toy Story.
i fell in love with this exciting and funny movie!
So I began to watch other English movies, too.
Although I could not understand everything the characters said, their body language and the expressions on their faces helped me to get the meaning.
I also realized I could get the meaning by listening for just the key words.
My pronunciation improved as well by listening to the conversations in English movies.
I discovered that listening to something interesting is the secret to language learning.
I also learned useful sentences like “lts a piece of cake" or "it serves you right".
I did not understand these sentences at ñrst.
But because I wanted to understand the story, 1 looked them up in a dictionary.
Now I really enjoy my english class.
I want to learn new words and more grammar so that I can have a better understanding of English movies.
