I graduate a week today! Primary Education BA Hons with QTS, after 4 long but amazing years at uni.

I've kinda already started my job as I've been going in for the odd day over the past month but I officially start on 1st September as a class teacher. I went in to school on Monday to spend the day with my class-to-be and now I'm well excited!

I'm an illustrator/graphic designer. (see my portfolio on my signature)

I just finished college and the graduation will be held in a few weeks. Ah yeah, and I studied Visual Communication Design. :P

And I want to improve my English speaking so bad, like, everytime I speak English there's always this small pause between each sentence because I have to think first of what I'm gonna say. I'd love to take a class maybe but I'm not sure.

I was like this when I first time needed to make real-life convos in English, but once you get somewhere where you need to speak English, you'll need a 2-3 days to get used to speaking it. I think I'm quite 'fluent' nowadays and I use it almost every day.

I just finished my German course few weeks ago (after 3 semesters) and got my B2 level certificate, so now I'm finally able to start studying from this October. 8-) I will study BA Sociology and I'm soooo terrified, like, I need to study in a foreign language that I couldn't speak at all just year and a half ago and to study something so theory heavy like Sociology with all the terminology, but I shall see.

We have something in common! :lol: How was it, studying Sociology and all? I don't remember you, Wayne, mentioning it? And how on Earth you do what you do with Sociology degree? Or is unrelated and you got your promotion the other way? huehue

Yeah, but the thing is no one here speaks English. :lol: So, ever since a few weeks ago, I decided to practice by myself by pretending that I'm being interviewed... by myself, alone, in my room. Sounds desperate but at least I try. :lol: I think my speaking is getting better though I tend to mess up the grammar when I try to speak fast. Do people there use English in everyday life, Serby?

It all happened when I moved to Austria and I knew about zero German, so English was the only way. Other than that, I abrely ever has chance to use English in spoken form (minus the English classes, but that doesn't count).

And don't worry, I talk to myself in different languages all the time, especially German now since I'm back in Serbia and I must not let my German go away in these 3 weeks. :lol:

I had my final exams exactly one week ago.

If I don't fail (which I don't think since the exams were pretty easy for me), I'll be a "Bachelor Of Laws" in September! :wink:

I'm studying linguistics and literature at my university :) I like literature much more, I also like writing so I think that my career will be connected with this :) I try to improve my skills working as a copywriter but I'm not sure that I'll build my career exactly in this sphere :)
