I have been a member of Mr. Josef's site for a little over 3 years and have one main aim as to why I joined English Club, it's mainly to improve and practice my English. I have enrolled in English schools too and have fused the actual knowledge I learned in school and Mr. Josef's site. I then applied what I learned here and in my daily life.
Aside from improving my English, I gained confidence in using the language. The overall effect on me is incredible. I got favourable remark in schools where I actually enrolled. And have at the back of my mind why didn't I get a 100% rating ... ^_^ ... (just joking!) Honestly, I really have seen how English Club helped me in improving my English and I am so happy of its outcome.
I find Mr. Josef's site like a small world where we, all from different countries with different culture contribute a little to improve our English. Alongside learning the language we also learn the culture of different countries which is of great help to all. This in turn promote extensive understanding of the people around us in relation to the culture and values they practice. English Club for me has became a bringer of culture in different parts of the world. Though I do not personally know Mr. Josef or any of the members here, it's really an amazing and unbelievable experience that by merely practicing my English here I gained wisdom as well. It's really so sad for me that not everyone see the club in this way. Maybe our differences as an individual should not be set aside. We really have differences in some ways.
We study and learn to improve our intellect by bringing forth a better person in us.
Good day to all.
