I have been learning English for work. At the beginning, I was teaching myself English. I started by watching movies in English with Russian subtitles and looked up almost every single word in an online dictionary. Sometime later, I realized that I was progressing very slowly. So I started to watch movies with English subtitles and take English lessons to practice speaking. I continue to learn and improve my skills every day and try to keep my studying consistency. I have difficulties with conversation because I need to recall
words quickly in the moment. However, I see my progress every day and it gives me motivation.
