Graduate of Gadjah Mada University, International Relations Department
Congratulations. You’ve found me.
My name is Rizadi, I’ve been using English regularly for more than half of my life as of December 2020. I would like to think of myself as fluent, but I hope that you will be the judge of that.
I am a graduate of Gadjah Mada University, International Relations Department. My hobbies include reading, writing short stories, making historical essays, and building my personal computer. The first time I used English was many years ago when a girl tricked me to say the word “I love you” to her. Not knowing what it meant at the time, I just said it without thinking much.
Now, I am not fond of being tricked, so I asked my mother (Once she’s done laughing) to arrange a private English tutor for me.
I’ve been through a lot of English teachers since then, and I had never quite liked any one of them. I often found their methods overbearing and rigid, unconcerned about adjusting to a particular student’s needs and motivations. Their lessons were often formulaic and made me just as bored as most math lessons, which was probably not a good sign.
Even so, they still gave me a good grasp on things that must be avoided while learning English, such that I managed to come up with my own learning method and proceeded to become quite proficient in English. The results of the various English tests that I’ve taken throughout the years have also made me decently confident in my technical skill when it comes to grammar, though my vocabulary is the thing I’m most proud of.
