My daughter has been studying at SE for 11 months. In my plan, I hope she can speak some simple English fluently, like to describe weather, feelings, things about color, shape and names. But until now she still doesn’t speak well because she didn’t do it according to my plan, I think.
In fact, I’m fairly angry and i can’t imagine it, if you spend half an hour studying English every day, you will eventually get it. Unless you are a lazy person.
