I never believed I would learn English. And now it feels really good to write this phrase in English.
Everyone who knew languages around me were from prosperous families, studying in expensive schools, with private teachers or even abroad. I was just a poor girl from a village, who hadn’t finished school and hitchhiked to Moscow. It seemed English was beyond my abilities, but I really liked the language, the culture and I wanted to learn. ⠀ One cold Autumn day, a few years ago, I started my self-study. I was exploring grammar on the internet, reading books, writing texts, learning poetry, watching movies in English. It was difficult at first, but I was very persistent. After months of hard work and struggle, I succeeded to the point where I could read Dickens and Joyce in their original form - that was my main purpose. Now I also enjoy all the English-speaking friends I have made - thank you all for being with me!
