A. Answer the questions below. Use the examples as models of the grammar and
vocabulary you have to use.

1. Why didnt you study English before? (List at least 5 reasons in a


composition.)

Example:

One of the reasons why I didnt study English before it is because I thought it
was too difficult. I didnt understand my English teacher at school and that
was frustrating.
The main reason why I had not studied English before, was because I
saw it unnecessary.

Another reason was because I studied my elementary school in a rural school


and we saw that subject by student requirement and not because we liked it very

Did not understand and also did not pay much attention to that class, he saw
it as something impossible to learn much.

I was frustrated not being able to learn easily the things that left us as jobs.

We did not have the sufficient tools to see this matter, besides the primers
that gave us with those subjects was very confusing.

2. How different would things be if you had learned English before? (Name and
explain at least 5 things.)

Example:

If I had learned English some years ago I would have accepted a job a
multinational company offered me five years ago. One of the requirements
was to speak English and my level back then was very low.
First of all, if I had learned English before, I would not feel so bad when I find
myself in need of speaking or understanding English and I succeed in doing so.

I would not have let pass the opportunities to leave the country in
commission of work with the company with which I work.

I would have helped foreign tourists in several occasions when they ask me
something in English and I do not know what they are saying to me.

If I had taken English before, I would not be so difficult to do these virtual


courses.

Would have served me too much in my studies of tegnology in international


negotiation.

professional profile becoming bilingual is essential.
