I was born and raised in the US so I grew up learning English. Video games, school, siblings and parents, books... All helped me learn!

english is a compulsory subject in my country but school is NOT where I pick up the language.. though maybe it's a contributing factor... Disney and Cartoonetwork are english right? hehe, that's my base english. Then classic novels which is basically my childhood novel. Then, in highshool, My friend came from an english-speaking family so since she sits beside me for 5 years, I speak english with her all the time. (since my country have so many race, we usually go to a school that matches our mother's language; Malay, Chinese, Tamil or English- but there's also my type of school- a merge of all races kind of school)

But due to the fact that english is a world language, it's everywhere in daily life. So even little children can pick up a few words. ;-)



Yeah, English is our second language in our country. I learned it from school. In our country it is an advantage if you know how to speak and understand english.

I'm a second generation Canadian so I grew up speaking English. I've been in the French Immersion program all through school, so I'm technically bilingual. My French is not nearly as strong as my English though.

I started to lern englosh in school around the age of 8 but I couldn't speak it when I was 16 (8 years of learning english right to hell). The when I was going to high school (Gymnasium here in sweden) I moved away from my parantes at the age of 16 and was going to a school with people from all over sweden and even norway, finland and a year later one from spain. When I was going in high school I started to read manga and watch anime, all with english subs so there is where I started to learn english (maybe alittle from games).
I'm really happy that I finally can speak english. Today I speak english everyday with some friends from England and US.
