“I studied English for years in school in Greece. To be honest, I hated it. After 10 years of studying the grammar, doing exercises from textbooks and listening to our teacher talking, I was exhausted. The whole thing was so boring and tiring. At the end of school, we had exams in English for speaking, reading, writing and listening. During my revision for the exams, I was very on edge. I was very stressed and I couldn’t remember lots of things. This made me frustrated and I started to get angry with myself. After 10 years of studying this language, I still could not remember the difference between the present perfect and the past perfect.

Anyway, my exams came and went and then I was waiting for the results. I got the result of my writing test back… I got an F! In that moment I was so upset. I tried so hard in the test and all those years of studying were for nothing. I thought about all of the textbooks I had read, and all the hours spent listening to my teacher and it made me really mad. What a waste of time.

So in the end I decided I could never learn English. After a long time studying, I still couldn’t speak it. I got an F in my speaking test too! I was really annoyed, because during my classes, I never got the opportunity to speak, I just listened to the teacher! Later I decided I wanted to go travelling and find a job in London. I was annoyed because my English was still so bad but I really wanted to go. So I found a little English school in my town and started having online lessons. My teacher was great and the lessons were so interactive. I had lots of opportunities to speak and I was thrilled with this.

After a couple of months, I felt very confident and I booked myself an IELTS test. My teacher gave me lots of encouragement and I studied very hard for the exam. The results came back and I got an 8. I was so thrilled and relieved to finally get a good grade in English. I felt on top of the world. Now I can go to London, find a job and speak lots of English!”
