Christian: Hello Kate! I hear you’re learning English now. Why?
Kate: Oh, yes. Two years ago I learned French, but now I need English for my future career.
Christian: You’re right. As for me, my ambition is to be a businessman and it’s impossible to become a successful businessman in Norway if you don’t know English. That’s why I’m learning English hard now and I attend special courses.
Kate: So do I. My ambition is to be a tourist manager. I’ll visit different countries and talk to different people. When you are in different countries, you can manage a lot better if you understand people and people understand you.
Christian: I agree with you. English is an international language nowadays. It is the standard language for all kinds of international communication. Almost all information in computers is in English. Nearly all international letters and telexes are in English.
Kate: Your English sounds perfect. How long have you been learning it?
Christian: Well, for about five years now. Of course I do my homework and learn grammar but I think that it’s because we get a lot of exposure to English in Norway: through TV, music, media, everything. And we don’t dub movies and TV programs like they do in many other countries. We get subtitles and I am used to watching such films.
Kate: The same with music. Here in Russia English music is very, very popular. Probably more popular than Russian music. I always listen to English songs. At first, I could hardly make out anything but now I can even sing several songs myself.
Christian: Really?! That’s wonderful because you’ll have good pronunciation if you sing English songs.
Kate: Can you give me any advice about learning English?
Christian: Well, you say you like travelling. Right?
Kate: Yes, I’ve already been to some foreign countries but, unfortunately, not to English-speaking ones.
Christian: That doesn’t matter. When you travel, try to speak English as much as possible. Practice is very important if you want to speak English well.
Kate: I agree with you. I use the Internet for practice. I have found some English-speaking friends on the Net and chat with them via Skype.
Christian: That’s great! However, don’t forget about learning grammar. As for me, I devote about an hour and a half every day to doing my homework.
Kate: That’s why you have excellent results. I wish you good luck.
Christian: The same to you.
