I think I’ve accomplished a lot in my second semester. Despite all the difficulties I went through ( family, friends, health, etc.) I did not give up, though many times I was on the verge of giving up everything. So, what’s the score? I’ve gone through the denial of English in everyday life. Right now, I’m watching TV shows and cartoons and movies in English, and I don’t feel like I have to turn off what I’m watching and switch to a Russian channel. Every post about my goals is always vague, since I have one single goal — to learn English — I do not divide that goal with sub-goals.
