A. Answer the questions below. Use the examples as models of the grammar and
vocabulary you have to use.

1. Why didn’t you study English before? (List at least 5 reasons in a


composition.)

Example:

One of the reasons why I didn’t study English before it is because I thought it
was too difficult. I didn’t understand my English teacher at school and that
was frustrating.
I have several otives for which I did not study English before, first in my
family I did not have someone who would encourage me to study
English or support me, second it seems to me a language of difficult
pronunciation since it was said something bad meant something else,
third in I remember a class that told us about regular and irregular verbs
and the truth was too frustrating to memorize so many verbs, especially
irregular ones, fourth the structures used in the composition of each
sentence created a lot of confusion and finally a great obstacle was my
lack of interest in front of this second language.
2. How different would things be if you had learned English before? (Name and
explain at least 5 things.)

Example:

If I had learned English some years ago I would have accepted a job a
multinational company offered me five years ago. One of the requirements
was to speak English and my level back then was very low.

If I had learned English before I could have accessed a better


education, without the limitation of the universities or training centers of
our own country. It would also give me access to more current and
complete information.

It would have been an excellent excuse to take a vacation to a foreign


country since it would put into practice what I would have learned to
know other cultures, lifestyles and different ways of thinking to meet
new and interesting people and understand their customs.

If I had learned it, it would also have been a personal achievement, I


would feel more proud and confident of myself, if I had learned English
before I would possibly be learning another language, English is the
universal language so it would help me to perform in some work either
in my country or in a foreign country would have allowed me to
communicate with everyone.

B. Record an audio file of yourself answering the following questions. Use the
examples as models of the grammar and vocabulary you have to use.
1. Why are you studying English? (List and explain at least 4 reasons.)

Example:

I’m studying English because I finally decided that if I want to improve my


professional profile becoming bilingual is essential.

2. In what ways are you going to benefit from this learning?

Example:

Being competent in English is going to increase the opportunities of landing a more


satisfying and better-paid job. We live in an international open market and English
is the most important language.
