Hello, my name is Acyuta Kirana and I’m currently a housewife residing in Bali. English was my favorite subject in school back then, learning English was fun for me and it should be fun for you too. I love pop culture like music, movies, tv series, and games. We can definitely learn English from them! I promise to make it fun to you. I scored 103 on TOEFL iBT and 7.5 on IELTS, all first time. My hobby when I was in International Relationship major in UGM was to join international events for students and I went to many of them. Such as HPAIR in Harvard, IYLC in Prague, and more.
