It is only four months since I decided to track my journey to bring my English writing and vocabulary to the next level, but I can clearly see the progress I made. Reading is way less stressful and more of a pleasure; writing itself comes out more fluently. “Finish the sentence! Always!” This constantly resonates in my mind as I was and am writing, the best I got from my writing English tutor who herself is a student in Linguistics.
2020, I shall keep reading, writing, learning, and see where I can get.
