Throw your boring old grammar book and your dictionary! When it comes to learning English, I do believe in CONNECTION not PERFECTION.
Hello, and welcome to Lee’s website– the website for learners of English and English teachers as well. I’m going to introduce myself to you so that you can get to know me a little bit and then I’m going to tell you about what is going to happen in the website in the future.
All right, let’s get the ball rolling.
First of all, my name’s Canh – Le Van Canh (I’m Vietnamese, by the way) Now the name Canh can be little bit difficult for learners of English to pronounce sometimes and I meet lots of people who can’t pronounce my name, so I did ask myself what don’t I come up with a new name? And then I got Lee. If you know Bruce Lee – Lý Tiêu Long, You’ll know why I came up with that name. Now, just call me Lee as an English name. That’s a lovely name, huh? Of course.
And let’s see. I’ve been teaching English for maybe 2 years now. I first started teaching English for the two friends of mine. We had worked together for Lotteria, which is a fast food restaurant. At that time, My English was really bad, Maybe I didn’t know how to say Hello correctly like native speakers of English. I remember saying something kinda like “ hello”,”hallo” or something like that. Maybe you guys still make the same mistake like me now.
And to make a very long story short, I can say they inspired me so much, it was kind of like “You quite like English and now you are in the process of loving it” and just like that English become my very best homie. Ya know? When I get upset , get mad at something or someone or just not in a good mood. I find my homie and have conversations with him and all of a sudden, I just feel better and peaceful.
Let’s talk a bit about my hobbies. I’m interested in lots of other things. I love cooking and always want to open a restaurant. I love going backpacking. Let me tell you this. If you never hit the road before, you guys will have to do it now. We are all surrounded by people. We work with them, we socialize with them daily and We also need a break from them and travelling seems to be a perfect way to know yourself better, leave your comfort zone and go into the wild, get to know other people, hike, dance, learn to cook, smile, talk to strangers, eat new food and see the sunrise on the beach.
If I have 24 hours a day to talk about traveling, I’ll spend 25 hours to talk about the benefits of traveling .Just kidding. There’s no 25 hours a day. Anyway.
I’m also into lots of things. I love playing football . When my life is full of shit, football is just like drugs and I’m so addicted to it. I love drawing and of course be freaking good at it. What else, music. Hell no!. it’s not my cup of tea. In other words, I suck at it, I suck at singing. My voice is horrible, terrible, no good, very bad. And if you ask me to do karaoke, just want to say “bye bye kido”
That’s just a little bit of information about me and now I’m also interested in you, and your opinions and your stories and your questions as well, so if you have any questions for me, if there are stories that you’d like to tell me, you can email me, friends.
Now, let me tell you about the website. what is so fantastic about this website is that the website is made by a Vietnamese boy who is not super good at speaking English and English is not his first language so that means if you’re interested in reading my posts then this website is for you. Like I said, this website is made by a non-native English speaker, so the sort of English that I write is maybe not as grammatical as a native does and if it annoys you, please stop reading it immediately.
This website is a really good chance for you to try and push your level of English up and if you start using some of the vocabulary that you see on this website.You can really start to push your level up to an advanced level of English because I’ll focus more on ENGLISH PRONUNCIATION. Hopefully, this kid of website can help you out if you are struggling with English.
Maybe, that’s it and I’d like to end my introduction here.
Any questions. Go ahead and email me at: shutupandspeakenglishwithlee.@gmail.com .
I’m very much looking forward to hearing from you in the future. Have a fabulous day.
