View Full Version : Hello From USA

8th September 2010, 20:19
I am a student from the USA. Locally, there are only two high schools that offer German language courses. Unfortunately, I do not attend one of those high schools. So, currently, I am self-studying German. I hope to be fluent in the language. I don't really have a certain date I want to achieve this goal by, but I know my German studies will take time, because I don't have a set time to study German everyday and don't have an in-person teacher to help me through this process.

Other than that, I hope to improve my English skills, despite going to school in the U.S. and being already fluent in English. I also hope to become fluent in French, a second language that I studied in school for the last 3 years. Also, I want to interact more with Vietnamese culture. Due to Vietnamese, I realized not only do you need to know the language fluently, but also the culture well, in order, to understand a country and its people.
