Hi everybody!

I'm a new member here, i just know this website because my friend introduce to me, he's an old member of this club and his name is Raj.

Let me introduce a little about myself. My name is Hieu, it's just a vietnamese name, but i'm always called Justin-my english name. I come from Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam. I'm 19 years old and still a university student, exactly is a sophomore.

My hobby is not many, i like listening music, watching TV, chatting with my friends. About sports, actually i like soccer so much and also like volleyball, swimming. Unfortunately, i can't swim so i feel sad to that, i try to learn how to swim but i'm always scary when i dive into the water, therefore i think i'll never know how to swim. One more thing about me, i like Manchester United FC, i hope i can go to UK someday.

In fact, my main purpose i join in this club because i try to improve my english on all of skills. Especially speaking and writing skills, perhaps i'm really happy if one of this club's members corrects my mistakes in my writings, i hope so. My dream is to have a good and stable job in the future, so i think English will be a key factor in my plan. Therefore, i try my best and study english as soon as possible.

Foregoings are my some thoughts at the first time i take part in this club, so i hope everyone will help me to improve my english, i'm really greatful about that and i wish i'll acquaint many friends here. That's all.

Thanks for reading!

Hi Justin, 

 

Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself. I'm so glad Raj invited you here. Great post! You can always take adult swimming lessons. I learned in university. My husband just learned over the summer. 

 

Re corrections: 

Let's work on these two. Can you separate both of these sentences into two sentences?:

  • I'm 19 years old and still a university student, exactly is a sophomore. 
  • Unfortunately, i can't swim so i feel sad to about that, i try to learn how to swim but i'm always scary scared when i dive into the water, therefore i think i'll never know how to swim.

 

 

English tip: Always use a capital I for I.

Hi Justin, nice blog.

Welcome to EnglishClub!

I  like swimming too. I also was afraid of water but after I took some swimming lessons, it became so amazing! I advise you to take some lessons with a profesional coach; after you'll master the technique, the fear will disappear, and believe me it worth the effort to learn!

Wish you good luck, both in English and swimming!
