English for Winners

Dear Friend,

Are you happy with your English? I mean, do you think you should improve your English but you don’t know how? Well, I pretty much found myself in this very situation a few years ago. I knew then that having a good command of the English language would help me get better jobs, meet more interesting people and use my talents and skills to their fullest.

Still, I didn’t know how exactly I would be able to improve my English dramatically since I was living in Germany where everyone around me spoke German of course. I had learned English at school and my grades were excellent.

However, I had never any chance to meet a native speaker of English in person so I had no idea as to what extent I would be able to actually understand and speak real authentic English. My English teacher at school was Ms Kriebel, a very friendly and pleasant lady whose native language was German and who had never ever been to an English speaking country.

You see, I grew up in the eastern part of Germany which up until 1990 was a communist country. So, after the Berlin Wall had come down I finally had plenty of opportunity to meet and interact with people whose native language was English.

Ever since that, learning and using English has been an integral part of my life. To me, English is not just a second language. It’s so much more. The English language has given me the means to surround myself with people who share their ideas, goals and dreams with me.

If you want to rise above mediocrity you need to use the knowledge, experiences and skills of other people. So rather than trying to ‘just learn good English’ you should be using English as a means to achieve your goals thereby improving your English skills on a daily basis.
