My story is about the experience of learning English, I would like to share the struggles and the challenges I faced and the process of crossing the learning obstacles.

  • it is apparent to see the people who have the high level of English but is hard to understand and think about the process of how their achievement
  • a lot of people think that the fastest way to improve the English is to participate in high-level class  but that is totally wrong, they will learn “slower” instead of improving so everyone should get into the class which are in the level you are
  • In my case: Public Speaking class is too difficult for me because the English level is too high and I felt not comfortable and do not have confidence in English so I go to the class which is more suitable for me
  • I think the biggest challenge of learning English will be to speaking English in my daily life with all people because I am afraid that others do not understand my idea or thought but I need to be brave to speak out and do not scare to make mistakes

Ideas about Audio Essay

In my audio essay, I would like to share about my experience of learning English. I will share the struggles and the challenges I faced and the process of crossing the learning obstacles (continuing practice). And I want to put a different kind of music or sound as the background to reflect my emotion.

  • use sound to indicate the different emotion of every stage of learning English
  • first stage: a lot of difficulties (heavy, deep and sad sound/music)
  • middle stage: gradually progress (excited and strive sound/music)
  • final stage: the sense of accomplishment (happy and relax sound/music)
  • let readers easy to understand the situation that I faced
