I  have been living in United Kingdom for over 10 years and I still speak very little English. I was always busy doing work and looking after my family in the past. But I decided to learn to speak good English and found this site, I am very impressed with the content available  in this site. I couldn't stay without saying thanks to all the team for giving everyone chance to practice and learn English.
