Well, working overseas really improved my english, especially having many conversations with distinguish americans..
First time I arrived in JFK Airport, eventhough LIA Advanced graduated, TOEFL 575 , still ain't worth sh*t. Bad pronounciation. But, time after time, my english is getting better, after 3 years working, there're many words that I don't know.

Talking to black american nosara is even harder..Damn, super fast english, many slangs.

BEST way is find overseas job with multinational company.


Sounds quite promising...
Finding such kind of a job would need lots of hardworking... but I can always try.
Thanks and take care there...

if you are searching the ability to speak fluently, to pronounce better, try to hear those british talking...not the american,dude.
it should have any use if you keep on listening and keep on trying to pronounce better...
never ask for an instant result...

Be honest, talking to british is easier to understand, because Indonesian english lectures are usually based on british english.
ex:
brit : thanks mate
us: thanks buddy

reply:
brit : you're welcome
us: you got it / anytime / lot of slangs.

Dear all,
I've been looking for an easiest way to improve my English and need your opinion.
What is best way to improve your conversation skill? join a conversation course? find a native speaker which may cost us a lot, of course...or simply find some friends and do it in groups regularly? Probably you may come up with a better idea...

Thanks in advance.


i think a lot of practice with native or not,will increasing our skill

I think, we are more used to hear to British English formally... but still I have no idea what is the big difference between those two.

Online conversation through YM?
Does anyone interested to have an online conversation through YM?
I've tried it several times with some friends, it was fun. But I really need to have a serious formation group to make it work. We can start with something fun to talk about... and make schedules to have a conference or something?

I'm at [email]gemniflora@yahoo.com[/email]

Thank you.

Hahaha, would be great but would also cost me a lot to go there... I'm afraid I can't afford it... unless I'll get a grant or something

how to talk politely and proper way to people that are older and respectful? I found it sort of an art of conversation to become eloquent and fluent

to choose the right vocabulary without being offensive off course, any suggestions anyone?

one word, use it
whether you have partner or not,
not just speak using english, you have to think in english

the problem that most people have, including myself (correct me is I am wrong) is confidence
have to get confidence that's the bottom line, cheers
