# The rubbish advice that I’ve ever received is that I shouldn’t worry much about learning English cuz you can learn English in two weeks. They said English is just making sentences and nothing else.
# I can’t point out an exact moment when I have advised, but most of the time I advise people about English learning methods and they can learn English passively.
