Hello everyone, Greetings!
This is my, so called, introduction. You can call me Illa and I am from Indonesia. I am currently 19 years old university student. I like art, I like to draw, paint, listen to music, watch movies, read book, and learning languages (etc.). I am interested to learn literature and such. I like to watch anime and read manga too.
I am having a quarantine time due to the corona virus. So, I am watching a series, it titled "Merlin." It is a story telling about arthurian legends. Though I know not all story told in the series is historically alligned with the old text, but I think it is a good story anyway, Unfortunately, there are ,no subtitles, even the english subtitles. When I watch the series I barely understand what they said. They talked with British English makes it more difficult for me to understand. That is where I realized how poor is my English ability and find a need to improve it.
Besides that, I am also interested to be a translator. It is so sad knowing there is some book I want to read but it is only available in English. I, who have enough understanding to read English is able to read them but how about the others? Also, the English books need to be imported from the other country, I cannot find a hardcopy of the book in Indonesia. To have them sent from other country is also very expensive. That is why, I want to bring the books in my native language so everyone can reach them. However, in order to do that, I need to have a decent English ability. I need to be near fluent. I was surfing through the internet and found this website. I though it will be nice to sign up as a member. I want to improve my English especially for my vocabulary and speaking ability.
It would be very kind of you if you want to be friends and help me to improve my English. Feel free to send me a message or reply this post instead. I am looking up for that.
Nice to meet you,
