Hi teacher: I really enjoyed your blog, but I wonder how many hours do you devote to this blog... It's really useful and easy to understand. After a while reading I realised that I am probably starting to speak english.

Well, I think most people nowadays think English is important. Their minds are starting to change and they now see all the possibilities English might open to them.

Some days ago I was in the university. In one of my classes which was in english, my teacher asked a question to the students; "What's your English level?" The answer wasn't a surprise, almost the middle of the class had medium or low level. Then, my teacher explained us that this problem happens in all the country, it's because we are not used to watch films or read books in English. We are very lazy, in general, with others languages which aren't our, so that we have more difficulties speaking or understanding foreign people.
