Speaking

One of my plans is improve my English because I think it is the most important thing I need to do right now. But, I still want to put it into my plan. When my English improves, I want to learn another language. I want to learn French or Japanese. I also think the environment is very important for learning a different language.

I want to travel five countries during three years. I want to go to Iceland. I also want to Luxembourg. I heard there are royal princes there. I heard a little bit about France and it’s a dangerous place so I am a little concern.
