Learning English: YES? NO?

Yesterday I registered for two English classes, one for grammar and another for dissetation writing. I really need to brush off my English writing skills. I feel that my skills are really rusty now. Not like the old years during my undergrad years.

Long gone were the days where I speak and write an almost flawless and accentless American English. I can't say my English is 100% perfect but back then I was able to correct others' grammar mistake while they were talking and I also used to proof read my peers essays. Sure I can still do that now but I am less efficient.

It's true that British English is quite different especially in terms of its pronounciation. I don't know whether I can learn the Newcastle slang during my study years here especially when it is said that people here have the thickest accent compare to other parts in the UK (Scotland excluded).

Anyway, I have always have fun learning English when I was in the US. I hope its the same here.

Well, I am about to pray my Asar prayer now before I go to my writing class. i'll share more about my English class later.
