Desi Anwar, a noted news anchor of a famous broadcasting network in Indonesia, once stated that one way to improve English proficiency is by using it daily and frequently. I was, —well, …still am actually–, so affected by that statement. Whenever possible, I always try to speak or to write or to sing *blushing* in English. However though, I’m no more surrounded by English-speaking people. Instead, lately I’m urged to speak in Netherlands. This, for me, is like a closing door to a chance of improving my skill in English-speaking. To deal with this shortcoming, my hubby and I made a pact to have an English Thursday where we must speak in English the entire day. But well, that didn’t last long. Our commitment for that pact were apparently questioned.
That is the reason why stumbling upon BEC made me jumping up with joy.
BEC for me is like a school to sharpen my proficiency in English; is like a guide book that I can always turn to whenever needed; is like a community centre where I can meet and greet friends, and make some conversations in English.
If you happen to read this blog and not yet a member of BEC, hurry to join BEC and start to write in English… Practice makes perfect ^______^
Keep calm and write in English,
