Before going to pare, I studied English in Palembang for around a years. I thought my ability not enough in reaching English well. I just studied grammar, grammar like ghost or monster for me, it made me stress because my ability not improve. One day, my mother asked to me, “Gilang you have been studying English about one years, but can you English well?. After my mother asking to me, I was shy. Every day I thought how could get English well.
I got information from my friend that he said, “There is Kampung Inggris you can study there, and i guarantee you can improve your English. After getting information about Kampung Inggris, the name village who has many English’s course and has the good method in studying English, I would study there. I told my parent whom I would study there around four month, later on my parents allow me.
In other hand, I did not have money to go to Kampung Inggris although I would go to there. Every day I though how to go to there because I did not have money. Finally, I got way how to go to there. I decided to sell my motorcycle because I have desire strong to study English. While I waited my motorcycle was sold, I looked for information about it.
After selling motorcycle, I went to pare to registration my study. I was registration in “Global English” after that, I got dormitory English the name is “SAIGON”. When I arrived in Saigon, I was surprise, because so many people stayed there. Actually, I am introverted person and I really like when I am alone. I talked by myself, “What I could to stay here”. I listened from proverb who said “you cannot find place who comfortable, but you can create place who comfortable”.
Then, I tried to get used with situations and I can adapt with it. I really like that I stay with people who speak English every days. It means I can improve my ability to study English. In the morning until the night I just studied English every day, and that is why I was able to study English quickly. I really thanks to god because I stayed in Saigon, and I met people who wonderful for me. They are tutor in Saigon, and I got much knowledge from them. They are Mr. Ardi, Mr. Panji, Mr. Dede, Mr. Ali, Mr. Umam,, Mr. Kido and Mr. Andik. I really thank to them because they have taught me about English and how to become the person who can give good thing to parents, family and other people.
I studied for four month and I realize not enough to study English with short time, but in there my ability improve. I can speak and write English even though still little. In addition, before I studied in Kampung Inggris, I confused to study English by myself, but now I got method how to study English effectively.
In contrast, in Kampung Inggris there are two type people. First, person can get much knowledge. They get much knowledge because can keep spirit and purpose. Everyone studying for long time can get boring, but the people who can keep their spirit and purpose quickly rise and aware. They will not fall with conditions like that. Every days, they only study and focus to reach their dream. Although so many temptation such as girls, or boys who ready became boyfriend or girlfriend. Another example, There are many tourism place who very cheap and you can visit them easily. They are not easy tempted because they not forget about their purpose.
Second, the people who waste time just having fun. Firstly, before going to Kampung Inggris, they want to can English well. Time by time, a month later they got lazy. They forgot about their purpose and deep with laziness. Although they have studied around 4 month until a years, they still cannot English, what is wrong with them. Every day, they waste their time to sleep and rarely join program because their mind just think about having fun. Therefore, it is depend on ourselves. Wherever we study if we can keep spirit, or purpose we can get it. However, if we cannot keep spirit, or purpose, it will be vain.
In short, I am lucky because I studied in Kampung Inggris. I got much knowledge English even though I am aware not enough to me just study since 4 month. However I am proud even become part of the family Kampung Inggris, Global English and also Saigon Warrior.
