 Hi everyone. I'm Vietnamese. I've just joined this page for a short time and I 'm really like this. My English teacher at the night glass told me that the best way to improve English is to make friend with people who speak English, especially native speakers. So I 'd like to make friend with all of you.

 Hi! its nice to hear from that you  want  to learn in english, and also i need to improve my english especially when i talked to my friends. I hope i can talk to you everyday or if you have spare time or available time. Thanks  to you all.

Hi I agree with you.Its a great ideas.I also "d like to make friend with people who speak english.

Whoever join this page are have the same demand, is improved their own English as soon as possible.
But just who are intelligent and aptitude can do that in quickly way.
I have a small tip want to share with who do not have those capability, is listen and studies the same lesson again and again whenever you could understand 100% the the lesson and new words before you change to new lesson.
