I always get the same questions like "My English doesn't improve," or "Why my pronunciation won't get better?" And I shouldn't write here but I'm sick of being asked those same old complaining-like questionings, so I decided to question back with "Have you studied 2000 hours?" or "Do you speak English at least 15 minutes everyday?" As you can guess most of the time their answer is No. The reason I like to refer to 2000 hours is this is what you hear in terms of English proficiency, not my opinion but it is convincing. These days I feel like their pride gets in the way or they believe they are so smart that they can get to a certain point within 3 months of conversation lessons. I wish I had such confidence about it!
