Practical experience is a great book for any lesson. So I’ll share with you from my practical experience.
When I completed HSC I could easily write a paragraph on any topic in English. Because that time our honorable English professor Md Rashid sir taught us in an exceptional way. He gave home task every day a new thing. In that time I enjoyed so much to read and write in English. But I was weak in speaking English. In my childhood or my college life, I never try to practice in speaking English with anybody. Even our English teacher never practiced with us.
Later on, I completed a Masters in Bangla, because I liked Bangla literature most. Slowly I detached from the English language.
Before completed my study I joined an NGO job. There, I faced many problems when the foreign buyer came to our office visit. Then I tried to avoid them.
But when I took a promotion and posted Head office. As a senior staff, I had to face them. Especially Ladies foreigner wanted to close us. So there was no way to avoid them. In that time, I searched a way to learning English speaking.
Not only job, but the English language is also essential for everywhere. I felt it deeply when I joined varieties workshop. Now I face this kind of problem when I read my daughter who reads in class six. Till class five I had no problem. She is good at English speaking but not good in grammatical issue. she is fond of English cartoon. So she speaks fluently. She doesn’t like any private tutor. So I have to read her all subject without math. I’m very week in math. Her father sees this part.
Not only that until now I have to go to some work at a part-time job where English needed. They call me only for my experience. They know that I’m good at English. Because my writing skill is medium and I understand their work format and also can work smartly. But I technically avoid speaking.
Now too read our reading syllabus I feel improve me, and my writing skill is growing. But my speaking weakness does not grow.
