HOW LONG have you been learning ENGLISH SERIOUSLY?
"Seriously" means that you learn English practically every day (1-2hours) and you have a stimulus to achieve upper-intermediate or advanced level.
What is your result?
How have you defined your result or your level? Was it an exam or something else that could help you understand your level?
As for me I have been learning English seriously 3-4 years, one year ago I passed Toefl ibt and from the results my level is advanced.
Of course, I don't count school years or university when I studied English too because at that time unfortunately I did not have a motivation to learn English well.
Thank you in advance for valuable information.
Since 3-4 months old - The first words Parents usually teach their baby are " Beautiful eyes" , "Close Open", "Bye" and "Baby". hehe lol
I feel you are a master of English, aren't you?
Tell me please how old are you and from this I can subtract 3-4 months and I will know how long have you been learning English?
I've only studied English in school. That is from third grade (when i was 9 nine years old) until 11th grade. I wouldn't say that I studied 1-2 hours a day under that period or that I was especially motivated. I think we had three english classes per week, so in total maybe I studied 4-5 hours per week. But since we don't dub TV or movies here in Sweden I was surrounded by the English language everyday.
I know that i'm atleast at upper-intermediate level since I don't have any problems reading my university course literature in English or watch an English movie without subtitles. But of course, now when I don't use my English as often, it gets worse.
Thank you for interesting information and logical foundation of your level. I agree.
i was studying english just 2 to 3 hours in a week but from 1 year now im studying it all time
I was born in the United States and English is my first language. However, nothing comes easy. Native English speakers don't have that much of a significant advantage over non-native speakers. We all need to develop a strong foundation through learning different aspects of the language, whether it be through learning proper grammar, how to develop a good sentence, how to form clauses, etc. Even though I'm not studying English rigorously, I still learn it in school. I probably studied English the most (or learned the most) when I was in elementary school (Kindergartern through 6th grade). This included thorough study of grammar, vocabulary, the elements of a proper sentence, writing, speaking, and much more. In the high school and collegiate level, many English classes focus primarily on reading, analysis, and writing.
