I started learn English 10 month ago for communication with foregn partners and also I'd want to know more about American culture.
My first goal is good level of English. I mean certain level in standardized English tests (e.g. C2 in CEF).
I need help in grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.

My hobbies are the music, so I'm studying piano and also I like to sing. Of course, one of my hobbies are learn languages. In the University I had to take English in 2 semesters, so since then I've been keep practicing and learning it. As I started to learn it I want to take it at a good level, that's is why my goals are to be able to understand, speak it very well , I mean be able to have a normal conversation with a native speaker. And also, be capable to read novels at English.
Well, I need help in the all areas. But, I wanna start with learning idioms and improve my speaking. And, I'm looking to learn a lot with someone isn't afraid to tell me what my mistakes are and help me to fix them.

My name is Bre and I live in New Mexico (USA), but was born and raised in Ohio. My time zone is GMT -7:00. I teach ESL, of course, but also teach dance, gymnastics, acting, art, and creative writing. My hobbies are dance, listening to KAT-TUN, Art History, and spending time with my sister. I've always loved English and started writing plays when I was in first grade. From there, it was a normal American education. I am the official editor of two up-and-coming American writers and excel at Academic Writing. My ultimate goals in English are: 1) to teach ESL in Japan and Italy; 2) to build a reputation around the world as a high-quality, caring and supportive ESL teacher; 3) to help anyone who wants to improve their English skills. I look forward to our group growing in numbers and sharing all of our wonderful backgrounds. Hopefully, this group will be greatly diverse!
