First of all, ı would like to thank to British CouncilTeam for episodes like this. they help us improve english skills. So, my study style is like this: I have decided to study as reading, writing, listening and speaking, respectively. Firstly, I will read the all text of A1. And than, I'll do all writing exercise of A1.. and so on. It 'll continue for all level like this. Than, the other parts-gramer, general english, leraning hub- will be next.
what do you think about this plan? would it be effective for improving English skills?

Hello muyanik,

It's clear you're very motivated, but you may find it more engaging to mix things up a little bit so there is more variety. It won't make the learning any less effective, for sure. I recommend using the grammar sections to back up the skills work. For example, if you do a reading lesson and there is a short language task then why not look up that point in the grammar section to reinforce it?

Remember that LearnEnglish does not keep a record of what you have studied, so you may want to keep a record yourself.

I strongly like teaching specifically English teaching. In the other hand I am interested in working with kids as well. so I think the best job for me is a child English teacher. I think if I become hired in a famous an institution it would be competitive job with generous benefits. but first I have to start with internship and low leveled job and do not slack off to get a promotion.
