Believe it or not, it has been almost 15 years since I began learning English in high school. Give it another 15 years, and the whole experience may become just a blur in my memory. So, I have decided to rewrite my story in the Successful English learners section while I still remember what I did and how it worked out. The result is a longer, more honest, and more detailed account of how I learned English.
In 1993, I got into the best high school in Wroclaw. It was a special program with a lot of English classes and certain classes (like math and physics) taught in English. I owe a lot to the people I met there, both students and teachers. My first two years in high school were very important for my English. At first, I thought I would do well without any serious effort. After all, I had gotten the highest score in class on the initial placement test and, until then, had been the top student in every English class that I had attended.
