When I was young, I had an idea came up into my head. It was the idea that said “We learn english just for learn knowledges from the westerners”. That idea made me to tried very very hard to develop my reading skill, as a consequence, I could read an overtime reading in just a few hours. Nevertheless, from time to time, I realized that English is not about learning only, it is about communications, therefore, I can not complete the communication with just reading but only combination of speaking, writing and listening too.
The bad news was I told no one about that bad idea, as a result, no one ever warn me to spent some effort to develop other skills I would be need in future. Currently, all communication skills in English are equally important to me. I’m still have to read very much text but as much as I have to speak, listen and write. Nowever, with only strength reading skill, I found it quite suffer from lacking of other skills.
Fortunately, I love to watch films without any kind of translations in last few years. It gave me a lot of passion to develop listening skill and it was a quite good starting point to improve speaking, as well.
From now on, with full awareness of real world usage, I intend to fullfill those skill I missed to strengthen my weakness from when I was young. I am aware that developing those skill at this age is much more harder but no one ever died from learning, did not it?
