I learn english from speaking it
Because English is a first language in my country unless you live in Quebec.
I had to learn english to escape from brazil
We learn it because it's easier than learning other languages and we can connect easily to other communities and cultures over the wolrd. Also, english speaking culture is very popular these days
I learn english because i live in England and i have been learning english since i was born
In Denmark we learn english in school from the age of like 8 or 9 and then ofc via games, internet and its kinda hard not to speak English if you want to go outside your own home
i learned when i was 2 watching peppa pig 😎👍
Because I was forced to learn it ...
Via school but internet helped
internet, school, tv etc...
Honest reply: I don't know. For as long as I can remember I'm proficient in english and I think it comes from playing music, games and pirated movies/series without subs.. One day someone overheard me and said 'hey i didn't know you speak english' and I thought 'I do?'
literally i was learning english since pre school ... (last year of kindergarten before you go to school) and ye afterwards i learned it from the age of like 5 to now which means since nearly 15 years ... im getting old... fak...
and ye i just had the basics at school and i mostly practiced it with online playing since i mostly played with foreigners instead of germans ... so i could speak english day in and day out...
Now during my job training we had an EU normed english classification test and im on a C1 Level with 90% and i got 15 points in my A-Level exams in english after only taking 2 of the given 5 1/2 hours 2 years ago
Why do you learn English? Because it's currently an international communication pass.
How do you learn English? Grammar from the school, vocabulary from videogames and movies.
learnt it in school, kinda had to. Also ir's an international way of communicating which is also nice
You know that English is taught as second language all over the world right?
we have english classes in school at least from 5th to 9th grade , and also english is the most useful language to learn since it's everywhere, specially now that I'm on university, almost every useful appointments are in english
I used to think that being a english speaker was a cool flex to do to non english speakers back in the days, but being a non english speaker is probably the best flex one could do, since most of them speak several languages, atleast in europe, whereas being english speakers we tend not to learn other languages, which is true for the most part.
The world is so interconnected now most people have exposure to english and pick up parts through netflix/music/games/the internet etc, english is like the "mutual language" used between everybody so its kinda like learn it or be left out IMO
ill always be nice to bad english speakers because im glad i dont have to learn their language to play with them 😎👍
I had to learn English to escape reality.
Started at age 5/6 through videogames and then YouTube videos etc.

90% of my english comes from that and maybe games.
10% from school.

-Why do you learn English?
-To be culturalized. In russian language you hardly ever can find really good information about some events/videogames and news in overall + if u know English in RUssia u can find good job better cuz in 21st century lots of jobs that requires English on average lvl
-How do you learn English?
-Well, first I hired a tutor, we were training for one year a grammar and then I got bored cuz I felt like that's not what I need. Later I met some guys in cs go and we got quite close, started speaking on lots of themes(I also hired a british man,he is over 70, and he doesnt speak russian, he helped me a lot in improving spoken language) - that's how I improved spoken english. I also watched lots of series at the same time in English language with subtitles (cant get far from that cuz I cant recognise speech quite well without subtitles apart animated series such as Avatar and so on)
Tried to read some books but unadapted books are very difficult for me, too much difficult words
I learned English from Doctor Seuss
I'll go deep with this one
I remember on kindergarten I had an english teacher whom I liked, so I asked him what GTA meant (yes, the game) and he answered in Portuguese. I remember I thought that was the coolest thing on the world. Then obviously, because of the Internet and videogames I learned 85% of my english, like Skype calls and obviously school English, but English in school is really weak and basic (at least in Brazil), so yeah, pretty much learned it online. The big downside to that is my pronounciation is horrible, but I can understand speech, write and read pretty well
Because I was forced to learn English at school and later gladly fell in love with the language
I know such English that I will leave the British behind. You see sir, I can talk English, I can walk English, I can laugh English, I can run English, because English is such a funny language.
Wanted to learn English in case I ever traveled or moved out of Russia in the future. Also just helpful because its so commonly spoken online as well
English is taught from 2nd grade onward here. I learned grammar, pronounciation and some elementary vocabulary in school, the rest comes from music, TV, games... I still remember a Runescape quest telling me to fetch a spade, and I had no fucking idea what it meant. That's how I learned the word for spade, still remember that. Eminem taught me how to swear, etc...
I already started interacting with English when I was in kindergarten, I guess. First it was through video games, some writings wherever, I've been interested in foreign languages since childhood, maybe because I just have genetic predisposition, maybe because two of my great grandmothers are native German-speakers, so I heard them speaking a language that differs from the one that I speak and it warmed my interest up. Then we got an English class in 2nd grade and I also got my first computer that year, so, of course, more practice has appeared, but mainly from my experience on the internet and computer games, because languages education in Russia sucks. I listened to music in English, read lyrics while listening to it and translated words and phrases, which I did not understand back then; I played online games with foreigners, so I just had to communicate with them somehow and of course I used English language, I was never that stereotypical Russian that only speaks Russian and expects others to understand, don't know why; I think that's about it, other than that I also watched some English-speaking YouTube and have a good internet friend from Estonia that doesn't speak Russian, which is another practice. Having all the aforenamed shit happened, I think I was already fluent in English when I was in 7th grade (14 years old). I know that I'm fucking impressive with that because I'm Russian, but I really don't like the sentiments in our society that everyone should learn English - otherwise you're stupid cunt and have no future because I don't think that my life would've been much more miserable if I didn't speak English: we have shit tons of YouTube, music, scientific articles in Russian language, almost every foreign shit is translated, either with subs or voice acting. Of course, speaking English opens more doors for you in life, but I don't believe that it's a must-have skill to reach success in your field.
I learnt English because I studied in an English medium school. I got better at English by reading books.
Why? Because of school (not anymore)
How? Mostly thanks to the internet and videogames (with basics from school)
It's a requirement for most jobs here. You learn it from anywhere you can.Books,tv shows,movies,social media, youtube.It's pretty much everywhere unless you specifically set it to a local language.
I had to learn english to communicate with the people in my country who speak english.
I had to learn english to communicate with the people in my country who speak english.
I learned playing Tibia and Wow.
My native language, i’m also learning German because the people i play CS with are German and Austrian and wanted to make it easier for them to communicate rather than them all have to speak English for 1 person
why: cuz I want to see english content too, not just portuguese ones
how: watching videos, listening music and speaking with other ppl, like I'm doing right now
unfortunately I'm not good at writing longer texts, but I hope that one day I will can do it

How do you learn English? I studied it in school for 12 years i guess... But everyday use helps the most
i learned from english sites, movies, and a little bit of elementary school
First I started learning at school just for the grades. Then I started playing online games, kept learning in order to be able to communicate and make friends. Now it’s a part of my life thanks to my occupation. I speak/read/write more in English than in Russian even though I’m still in Russia lol

Why do you learn English? Is this rly a question ?
How do you learn English? At first , I played story games and watched movies . Now I honestly speak it more than my own language
I'm not an expert in english. As far as I can remember, I kinda have always knew how to speak english, I remember that I already understood what was happening on the story of the games I played on my ps1 when I was a kid. Today, I have a lot of contact with it because the majority of information on the internet is always in english.
"wHY dO yOu LeArN EnGLisH?"
Because greedy developers do not want to spend money on translation
It's pretty much self-explanatory. It's a compulsory subject in most of the schools and if you don't know how to speak it well then you're fucked up (you can't travel anywhere). Apart from school I learnt most of it just by playing videogames. Nowadays I watch a lot of videos in english too so I'm really comfortable with it.
i started with watching pewdiepie... First i didn't understand anything ->google translate than i just learned the words figuring out from the text environment. I'm going to english final exam tomorrow, wish me luck.

I still do not speak it but this forum forces me
HLTV is best way to learn English
i have learned grammar from school to do my exams then i started to watch english-speaker streamers or youtubers + tv series, they created a good combination and i think my english is decent now but i know there is so many things to learn
I learned a lot of English through school tv and YouTube and learned it cuz it’s English very popular language
My vocabulary is even better in english nowadays than my own language because I spend more time writing, reading and listening to english than I spend time using my own language IRL. It's easier to express myself when writing in english. Talking is a bit different story as I don't have to speak it very often.
Games and duolingo. Because everything comes in english first
Why: because it's the language with most speakers in the world
How: English classes paid by my mother when I was a kid/teen
A number of reasons.
1. We lover Shakespeare and Elvis, so English is a must.
2. Taught in school as the main foreign language. On top of that everyone learns a bit of Swedish and Norwegian, plus a good deal of German or French. Those that go to what is sort of our high school then often add another language, that is then usually Russian, Spanish or Chinese.
3. Lots of media is in English ie. music, movies, games so it easy to pick up.
4. As a small country we tend to often travel to other countries both for business and pleasure, so it is another way to use and pick up languages including English.
Also on a more personal level. I got into computers early, so I needed English to do programming and stuff which meant using a dictionary a lot since it was before I reached the time where it was taught in School.

My grammar is horribly bad and I'll be working on that too.
School + Biggest Language
I dont think this thread wasnt meant for me my guy
I learn my English from speaking and reading online. A big part of the information be it scientific or any other type is translated over to Finnish and this makes it very susceptible to translation errors. That means if I can get my information in the original language (usually English) I will not have to think about such a thing. Also, I have a bunch of friends online and abroad and we do not share any other language between us. My English has developed to the same level as my main language Finnish so I can easily use either if need be.
Had been watching pewds for a year, and had some basic knowledges of course
Then internet helped
Learnt English through HLTV, improved it in order to make sense on HLTV.

Why to learn English - it somehow became the de facto go to language to speak internationally
How to learn - literally the internet and pop culture. We have so much slang constantly popping up and the language keeps evolving so just doing that would be a lot better than taking lessons, also probably more affordable.
Edit: Obviously I learned because I'm a burger
I was born here
I speak english
I learn english to communicate in hltv forum.
