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.
1. I had no reason to learn English, I was not interested, and I didn’t have the
need, but now the university requires a second language
2. I didn’t understand my English teacher and the English practices were
memorizing unstructured words
3. The English courses at the university are good quality and I didn’t have
enough money to pay for them
4. I didn’t study English before because I wasn’t too good to learn foreign
language, I practiced Portuguese and Mandarin
5. I didn’t study English before because I didn’t have enough time to take a
course

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.

1. If I had learned English before, I would have approved visa and traveled to the
US
2. If I had learned English before, I could have studied in another country
3. If I had learned English before, I could have accepted a part-time job that
required it
4. If I had learned English before, I would have certification in English for my
curriculum
5. If I had learned English before, I would have not problem communicated with
my friends from the US

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.

1. I study English to graduate from university


2. I study English because I want to visit the US
3. I study English to have better job opportunities in Colombia and the
other countries
4. I study English to have better abilities to know other cultures in some
countries and to have better abilities to speak this language

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.

Now the English language is important for work and to have better opportunities
abroad. At first, I didn’t like it but now I understand things better and I would like to
continue learning with more courses
