english! yap, english. from now, i will try to write my thought in english. hehe.. why do i suddenly say this thing?
yap, as you know – if you know me well :) – one of my weakness point is in language. even for local language i can not understand. i am sort of person who is so lazy to learn local’s. i have lived in three different cities, but i still can not say a sentence in makassar/bugis or sunda properly except my hometown’s. hehe..
how about english? hmm.. poor. it is appeard when i have an interview session.
say the words in regular vocab, no ‘sophisticated’ idioms, easy listening but hard to understanding :)) . i hate it when a good idea pops in my head, but i cant explain it well.
i have a friend. she always push me to learn english more. one day, i told her that some day i want take higher degree. than she asked me, ” what’s your toefl score? “. then i said , “bla..bla..bla.. ” – censored – . and you know what? she suddenly scream in the middle of town, eh i mean resto. ” do not even think about take higher degree with that score, tomorrow you start to learn english again, and take the toefl test. you should get about 600 point. ” oh my gosh!. she made me embarassed. like a mom talk to her little child.
then i realized, all the time i feel good with my english ability, think that i’m okay with that. but its wrong.
yah, there is always a starting point to learn. there are so many ways. start to read more and more book in english, write some articles, whatching film without subs – yeah, it will take twice or three times than normal duration, spend the time to push pause and backward :) -. but, break a leg. lets do it.
there is another reason beside my academic things. i do love travelling. hope someday i can go around the world. so fluency in english will help me.
St. Augustine’s quote, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
*ps : dear grammar police, please take your time while reading my writings. and don’t be too harsh.. haha..
