Pendidikan Bahasa Inggris,Universitas Brawijaya

Hi, I am Bella. I decided to learn English seriously when I was in junior high school because of Harry Potter, I want to check out for myself if I can go through the walls and take a special train to go to Hogwarts. Therefore, I started to speak in English with anyone and post in English on my social media. I also learn English by myself through various sources and by doing what I love, such as reading, playing games, as well as watching shows. I have fun learning English and I wish you will enjoy learning English as much as I am.

I am a laid-back person, so please be comfortable with me. Let’s get to know each other and learn together.
