About the Author

Posted by

A Vietnamese. An English Learner. A Language Lover. I enjoy learning languages. I believe that self-study can be a lot more effective than class study (if you learn in an effective way) My favorite quote: “Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution.” - Aristotle *To write the content for this website, besides my own experience in language learning, I collected and synthesized the experiences of other highly effective language learners.

  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is
    fundamental and all. However think of if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the
    most beneficial in its field. Fantastic blog!
