Well, this is my first post in english. This time i’d like to share about English Village.
Derived from it’s name English Village means when most people in the village use english as their language.
It is located in Pare,East Java. You can see my previous post about how to get there. For the first time i heard this village is when my friend told a story about his friend whom can’t understand english. Then his friend came to english village and studied english for 4 month. “Awesome” he can speak english fluently and get the job easily.
Quiting from my previous job i decided to went to English Village ASAP. My purpose of coming to english village is to focus on my speaking. Because at that time i only got 5.5 for speaking section in IELTS test. Therefore My first choice is Marvelous english course which focus on speaking.
