[02:36] Igor’s Background In English:

  • When I was a student in Ukraine, I learned English from the first grade at School Number Five.

  • While other classes taught German due to the Soviet Union’s influence, I stuck with English. However, the instruction was limited to textbook Soviet English, far from the real language.

  • Later, my family moved to Israel, where English was widely spoken. Being part of a generation exposed to Western movies and video games, my vocabulary improved, though my proficiency remained limited.

[04:40] Need To Learn English:

  • My desire to make money through affiliate marketing and content creation pushed me to work on my English skills.

  • With practice in writing and reading, my English improved significantly. A mentor from Manchester, now in Philadelphia, helped me refine my language use and sentence structure.

[08:24] The Impact of Environment:

  • The most significant improvement came when I started coaching others and spent hours daily speaking with people from Canada, America, and Europe.

  • Immersing myself in this environment enabled me to learn and mimic their way of speaking, which contributed to my fluency.
  • Overall, practice, immersion, and constant exposure to English have played a crucial role in developing my language skills.
