Ayumi and Katya share how they became fluent in English.
Katya: Hello, I'm Katya from Bulgaria.
Ayumi: Hello, I'm Ayumi from Brazil.
Katya: And the question is how did you learn English? Well, how did you learn English, Ayumi?
Ayumi: OK. I actually started from junior high but I was like, I have to admit that I was really, really bad in English. I was even reading like very mooch, very much, like very mooch, like I was reading as like the Brazilian way. So I actually had to put a tutor teacher to teach me like every twice a week and somehow she helped me a lot.
Katya: For me, well I always had a lot of, I was really interested in learning English well but on the other hand when I went to high school, I decided to go to a foreign language high school so I was forced every day up to three hours of English and then I had a lot of homework and my teacher was very good actually. She was very, making me study a lot every day because I wanted to prove her that I'm actually good at English. She had that way of making students really study hard and I tried to impress her because she was very cool and she was very funny and she wouldn't let us talk in Bulgarian so it was very strict sometimes.
Ayumi: Ah, that's very good.
Katya: Yeah. And then I learned a lot also when I went to university.
Ayumi: Yeah, yeah, university helps us a lot.
