I have learned English for 18 years. When I was a small kid, I didn't learn it intentionally. Here is the thing. I like American dramas. Thus, I had watched friends for ten years. This was how I learned Enlgish. However, it was just an accident. I had learned korean for 1 year. I knew a korean friend in my freshman year. I have to say that my friend's English accent was very bad. So was his Chinese. Thus, I had to communicate with him in Korean. Besides, my korean was very bad. In addition, I forgot everything. I had learned Japanese for several days. My grandpa has been in China for 70 years. He was Japanese. I was kinda interested in his native tongue. As a result, I asked him to teach me. After only several weeks, I went cold on the deal. So, I hardly speak Japanese. How many years have u learned your foreign language, how is it going?

Hello! In India we were taught English from the primary level and in college the mode of teaching was English.so we gathered knowledge in English.In office also we are required to communicate in English.It is regarded as the official language so far.thus we learned this foreign language from the beginning of our career till end of the life.Learning never ends in this life.thanx.
