BEC, a group that had formed spontaneously is now become bigger in only a month time. It has been 5 weeks. Many Indonesian bloggers now post in English on Fridays.
So for EF#5 the theme is about BEC itself, about the meaning of BEC for me.
Joining Blog English Club means posting in English once a week. I have been wanting to do this since long time, but I do not have the courage. I only try to write in English for Weekly Photo Challenge, it is not enough though.
I have made the English post for BEC since the first week and afterward I made a commitment to myself to post every Friday even if I am so busy and do not have spare time to blog. The challenges in BEC make me have to write regularly. It is help me much to fill this blog.
When I stilI in university I used to make a little extra money by translating journals or part of textbooks ordered by fellow students. Translating textbooks is much easier for me than reading a newspaper (because the English is more complex) or write in English. I have never used English since leaving university, I can not find an exact English word right away. Very often I must consult the Google Translate even for a simple word. For instance I almost forget what the word khawatir means in English.
But it is different now, because reading the English posts of BEC members gradually bring back those English words to me. I also learn many new words and expressions from the 4 mentors. I also have many new friends. So I think I will continue to write In English.
Good luck admins and mentors thank you to you all that have build BEC. I am waiting to celebrate the group first birthday.
