A I can’t remember when I first started learning English because it was – and still is – the language my family speaks at home. You see, my mum is English and both her and my dad (who’s French) thought it would be a good idea for their children to speak English at home and French at school. It has worked! Me and my sisters speak both languages well, and I can go from one to the other without thinking about it.
B I never learned English at school, because our second language was Spanish. I think that today children learn English, but not when I was young. I learned English when I was working in London for a year after university. I was so worried about the language! But I found that after a few weeks, I knew what people were saying and I could speak quite a lot. I think you learn a language best when you really need to, not just for passing exams at school.
C I started learning English when I was about seven, at school, but we didn’t do very much!
I don’t remember anything from those lessons. We had one lesson every week and I forgot everything between the lessons. The only lesson that still remains in my memory is when we imagined we were different kind of fruit. I was a banana and walked round the room saying: ‘I am a banana!’ I thought it was very silly!
D I didn’t start learning English until I was 11 and it was really difficult. There were 30 students in my class and we never said anything in English. The teacher taught us grammar rules and we learned long lists of vocabulary for tests. I didn’t understand why I was learning this strange language. The teacher didn’t show us any English films or magazines and we never played any games. The lessons were boring, so I didn’t learn anything. I don’t think our teacher was very good.
