Stuck on stress - do you mean you are not sure how to sound out the syllables in the word?

@NealC: Thanks for your feedback.

I used some words were wrong and I know this. You know, I am not a native speaker. And I am trying to reduce anything that I made mistakes. So I hope you understand it.

@Aurelio: it's really useful when I read your comment. I know, I am not keen on learning English when I begin. My attitude has impact negavetive on learning. But now I have changed it and I am trying to practice Elnglish everyday. I spent about 5-7 hours a day to learn English by myself. I listen VOA special English, read books written by English and especially, I read a book namely Introductory Econometrics by English that I am interesting in the subject. In addition, I intend to study abroad and my English skills are necessary that is really my motivation.

Wishing you a good health and happiness.

Thank you so much.

Learning a language that is very different from your own, like Vietnamese from English, is difficult for anybody. Pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and several thousand years of distinct cultural heritage ... there is enough of a gap to bridge to make this a veritable challenge. I believe this has little (= nothing) to do with talent, but a lot with persistence and strategy. By strategy I mean the approach taken to learning - finding out what works for you. Is it reading, videos, chats, etymological studies, songs, grammar drills, lessons with a tutor or a group - or probably a mixture of several of these elements? How often do you learn and for how long? How do you keep yourself motivated? By persistence I mean the discipline to stick to a plan (and to modify it if it does not seem to be working). Good luck in your endeavor!
