Going To Speak “Better” English Thanks To Emanera

When I made my first video with Luna that I put here, an American guy commented on Facebook, saying “Karl has to learn to speak English“. True. Four years ago, I spoke no English/American at all. I had no schooling in English, I just decided to learn it on my own to begin writing in English on my Serbia’s Ambassador’s website.

Now that I’m meeting more and more people (tourists, ambassadors, foreign journalists) my bad spoken English is really a big problem. So, last week I was searching on the internet for an English school, and I came across Emanera‘s website. Guess what! You can mix holidays with business! I mean you can learn to speak English (think I’m not so bad in writing it) in beautiful and sunny places. Fantastic! So, I and Luna went to Emanera’s office and there we met Sinisa.

He told me that Malta would be a great place for me to improve my English, in the beautiful Maltese resort of St. Julian. OK! Then he asked me “What are you doing in Serbia?” I handed him my business card, and we had a brief discussion about my work. At the end, he decided to support me (and Luna) and is going to pay for our one week vaccation/English course. “It’s our “donation,” he said. Oh my god! Again, Serbs are more than generous.

So, in the end, I found the best English school ever, and I and Luna are going on holiday, too. Thanks Emanera – not for giving me for free this course, but for your great idea, mixing learning foreign languages and holidays. Check out Emanera’s website.

  1. Dear Karl, I went through the same experience when I moved to the USA. My written English was good, but I felt like I had a frog in my mouth every time I had to speak, LOL! It took a lot of practicing, but now I sound much better, almost like an American. :) So definitely the only way to do it is practice the speech. Your written English is already perfect.
