I was learning English Language from Grade 1 until my graduation from the university. But I can't talk, write and listen good. I don't know my English Language Level. How to determine the Level? When I answer some question test, I got intermediate, advantage but sometime i got basic level. How to define the level of my English Language?
I had the same problem some years ago and figured out that there were two main goals (for me):
- speaking fluently
- speaking correctly (grammar)
My teacher told me that usually speaking fluently is more important because natives can see over your little mistakes. "But I can't talk, write
and or listen goodvery well(?)", anyway your message is clear.
She also told me that with a lot of talking you improve your grammar but not the other way round.
So what I did was hitting up some native guys online (video games) and I started voice chatting with them for more than 2 years now. Doing so, I (mercilessly) found out about what I still had to learn. Looking for the right course was easy after this :)
