First English Words

I love this, because it’s soooo true.

Fact: when my family first moved to the U.S., our parents actually encouraged my sister and I to watch TV so that we would be more immersed in our second (and very foreign) language. I am happy to report that Jem, Thundercats, and He-Man were my best, and favorite ESL teachers. 😛

    I discovered your blog a few weeks ago thanks my friend and I haven’t left it since.
    LOVE it. In your own way you are able to say the truth having good manners and class. I think that is what “ironic” style is.
    One of my favourite blog, keep it up. 🙂

    Anyway you reminded me of my first nintendo when I was 9! And now I want it back so I’m trying to buy it on ebay ahah.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. 😉
