Therefore I learned basic grammar, vocabularies and phrases from ZERO that like be a beginner then I studied English 8 to 10 hours per day and the most time is a half day in a day.
I listened and sang a lot of songs in English, and now I’m a fan of “One Direction", “Voice Play", “Home Free" and “Corpse". you can listen to their songs and watch their videos on YouTube and Streaming Services like Apple Music , Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music.
