Finally I met!

Last Tuesday I had the worst experience in learning English I've ever had as I posted on this site. In fact, ever since then, I'd been overpowered and somewhat afraid of speaking in front of native English speakers. Luckily I could share the story with my fellow English-lovers. Their comments were a great comfort to me.

To overcome my hesitation and boost me confidence, I visited a English cafe that a British woman runs. On entering the room, we started catching up on each other. Then, I talked about the story. She told me that you should ignore that kind of person and take it as your life experience. She also told me that she completely understood what I said and meant. After that we moved on to our usual chat, including discussion on current issues such as corporal punishment.

After I went back home, I got ready to talk to another teacher on Skype. I had made an appointment to take her trial lesson.
This time I didn't tell about my job or my skills at the beginning of the lesson in order to see her reaction or how much she understood my English. During the lesson, she asked about my job and then I told her. Her attitude was still polite and kind. As such I could feel relaxed and speak as usual.
At the end of the lesson, I asked her about what my English was like. She said, "Your vocabulary and grammar are no problem although there were some rudimentary mistakes in some sentence structures." Then, I asked, "Did you understand what I said and meant?"
She answered, "Yes, perfectly I understood, VibrantRose."

What a relief! I'll slog at my English study.^^
