    Thanks Yvonne for the new slang of the day. I knew it already but it’s still useful to remember again.

    Learning to understand or even reading and writing in English was a piece of cake comparing to learning how to speak well.

  2. Yvonne says:

    I agree Bettina. The same is true for me and French. I can write and read much better than actually speaking the language.

    Hi. I’m Trang. I’m from Vietnam. Someone can write in English easily but for me it’s not a piece of cake. The reason is I’m thinking of my mother language while I am writing. I need to improve writing skill and expand my vocabulary. I am very happy if you give me some advice. Thank you so much.

    Hi Trang, I think if you continue to practice English while watching TV shows and reading books, you’ll get better and better. It’s easier for some people than others. You’ll just have to find what works for you!
