Reasons for doing a drafting course and improve my level of written expresion
Como finalizaciÃ³n del âCurso de ComunicaciÃ³n Escritaâ me gustarÃa hablaros de cuÃ¡l ha sido mi motivaciÃ³n para realizar este curso y compartir con vosotros mi experiencia personal.
In the first place when I decided to do this course it was because I wanted to refresh my style of writing and to gain more lossness when I have to capture whatever it might be on paper, for my private needs or professionally.
Secondly I found it interesting to have a first contact with a cours like that for that I could appriciate more the later opportunity of doing the ELE course what had been in my haed for a long time.
Also my formation and my working experience developed in the world of administration and leading of companies, the little contacts I`ve had with teaching and pedagogy always seemed atrractive and rewarding to me. This is why I never missed out an opportunity of deepening my skills in this field, might it be half voluntary or as a extra activity.
During the last years my interest has been learning and perfectioning languages. My mother language is Spanish and during my education I learned Catalan, reaching a level of total bilinguality. Unfortunatily I can`t say the same about my English. To be honest it never passed the level "Intermediate or Upper Intermediate", even though I`ve been studying it for years in school.
For those of my generation it hasn`t been that easy learning foreign languages naturaly and only few lucky ones had the opportunity of spending a time abroad to reach a real linguistic immersion. And for those who, like me had to learn by going to a private academy without more pedagogic resourses than a manual and cassettes with A and B sides, the learning process has been a lot longer.
So that before this panorama, with thirty and a lot years close to the fourties with an important family burden, not even speaking of the work, I decided that I had to start over with my permanent subject again and I was lucky, I say lucky because I was literly drawn, to be able to enter a third time the Oficial School of Languages in my city studying Spanish.
Now that I`m doing my fifth course and I just reached the level C1, I`m have the condition to say that all the sacrifies and the time I spent on it were worth it.
Certainly, like this it is far easier for me: the modern technologies are working to my advanage and I don`t have to listening to the same cassett over and over again or I can watch a movie in the origional version subtitled from time to time.
And since the experience was very rewarding this year I also motivaded myself to start learning Frensh, which I never studied before, but which I would like to learn a lot.
You can imagen the commentaries they made at home about me wasting my time and things like that. But I strongly believe that: " IF SOMEONE WANTS TO DO SOMETHING HE SHOULD DO IT NO MATTER WHAT IT COSTS AND IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO BEGIN..." So all you out there: Motivaed yourself to learn languages and don`t ever give up!
