Taking the English seriously

Dictionary of English

Since Muzzy, to study English have been a big funny to me. In my autodidacticism I learn much and no doubt more than a few people who paid years of expensive courses, but the missing of method and regularity made ​​me learn only what interested me and acquired several vices of speaking, writing and even interpretation.

Now, more than 20 years later, I'm determined to finally take seriously the English as my second language. I come back to frequent classroom and practice translation and writing, I want to improve my results in public procurement and pass certification exams. Now, my idiomatic hobbies are Spanish, Italian and French. English starts to be job, as already is the Portuguese.

See ya!

I'm brazilian and this is a translate exercise. Original here.
