At what age did you start learning English?

Recommended Posts

Ever since I had access to the internet. Since everything on the internet is in English, you're bound to pick it up sooner or later. I still remember actually learning the language, such as saying ''this is very different!'', and later realising it should be ''difficult''. If I go on my old YouTube account and scroll down I can clearly see how my English gets gradually worse, it's quite funny.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    In middle school, you could always see which kids actually engage in communities and watch videos, and which kids just play Call of Duty and skip all cutscenes. They say Dutch people speak very good English, but I disagree. Those who don't spend quite a bit of time on the internet only really start to learn English in high school, which I don't think is right. Those who graduate from high school often have mediocre grammar and don't properly implement the English alphabet, which doesn't really help with their Dutch accent.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         I like how you said that natives have no idea what people mean by ''simple present'', ''past present'', etc. I speak English fluently but still fail tests because I have no idea what they mean by that.

I started learning English when I was around 11 years old, everything seemed to be really hard, but I managed to turn it into my second language besides Spanish. I really consider myself a good and fluent English speaker so far.
