I talked a bit about myself in one of my first videos, but let's get to know each other a bit better 🙂 My name is Julia. I graduated from the Moscow State Linguistic University with a degree in Theory and Methods of Teaching Foreign Languages and Cultures. I have been working as an English teacher for 10 years. Here I could just say "so I know what I'm talking about," and leave it at that 🙂 But that's not all. In addition to education and teaching experience, I have a huge experience in studying foreign languages. I have been learning English since I was five. I began to learn German at the University from scratch. I'm studying Spanish now by myself and quite successfully. Yes, I do not have an impressive list of languages that I know like some true polyglots can boast, although I've studied a few other foreign languages. But nevertheless, I have a vast and invaluable experience in the field of learning foreign languages, which I want to share. As a teacher, I have worked with people of different ages (from 6 to 60 years), different levels (from zero to advanced), with different goals, using different methods. As a student, I have tried myself almost all the techniques, approaches and recommendations that I will tell you about. I will try to collect all this experience in this blog and to tell you in as much detail as possible how to learn foreign languages, so after reading to you, I'd like to repeat, you will only need to start.
And now tell me about yourself! Who are you, where are you from? What foreign language are you studing and why? If you have any questions about studying foreign languages - feel free to ask them in the comments. I may even answer some questions immedeately, and some will be further covered in the blog.
