I have a rather long name, but you can simply call me James. Even though I am a Filipino, my first language learned is English. My parents thought that learning that language is good for my future, and I believe they were right. I would not have progressed from being a telephone operator, to a team leader and eventually to being a quality manager, if hadn't had the exposure to English at an early age.
I love reading, painting and recently, listening to music and recently, coin, stamp and banknote collecting. I am keen observer of world events, and I have opinions about those issues i feel very strongly about. As someone who teaches English, having a global mind is extremely important.
I have 14 years of teaching behind me, mostly on the area of English. Sometimes, I handle communication in English training for a technical school, but my regular "gig" is helping our Korean students prepare for their TOEFL, IELTS, SAT or GED (American Social Studies) in another school. I also am a private tutor, handling SAT for a 17 year old high school student , and English vocabulary for 2 young teeners. I also do online classes, English conversation for Koreans as well.
How easy it to learn English? That will depend a lot of factors, most important of which are exposure and attitude. As with any language, exposure to the language is the best in fast tracking your learning. Attitude is as important. If you want to learn the language badly, you will do anything to master it. So the time it takes to learn English will depend on you, the learner. For grammar alone, one must spend an hour each day learning the rules. Vocabulary? is always a work in progress - even for an old guy like me. Keep reading! Keep speaking!
I'm currently at work at developing a 12 week accent training module. I hope to be able to bring this to the table soon.
