"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    I read books and articles out loud.
    I don't have many chances to practice speaking but when I have some time on my way home, I drop in an English speaking cafe. Here, you can speak to someone from abroad who can speak English fluently, but you have to pay 1000yen for an hour. I watch YouTube videos a lot. I also started using Skype to talk with other members here in English, but it's not as easy as I had thought it would be to secure time for Skype because of all those family duties.

    I think reading English aloud is the easiest way to do the practicing.

    I learned English by reading news papers, novels, english sitcoms like Friends with subtitles. It has really helped me. Though I can understand English easily but I am not so good at speaking or with writing. I am planning on trying to speak more English with friends whenever it is possible.

    Hi I started learning english when I was 10 years old, but at that time i didn`t copmlete was focusing in english. I was learning english because I must was to pass some test in school. Now it is different. I really want to learn English. Purpose why I want to learn English is a big. English language allows me to find better job, to speach with other people when I traveling and et cetera. I realy started to learning english and be apsolutly dedication before four months. I started with listen native speakers and learning words on their speaches. Also before two months I started to read, but not every day. I read some interesting topics on the internet. Recently I started to writting on this forum. I hope that I will speach english language fluent, that is my final goal.
