My very First english Posting

So, This is my very first post in English. Please don't be rude. I may sound scrambling, puzzled, boring, or whatever... My English might be still not good enough to write this. But how could I know if I never try?

So what am I going to write?
Nothing special..(dubrak!).

I'm just trying to write in English, that's all! This writing is going to talk about this writing. This is neurotic--I KNOW! How could a writing talk about the writing itself?

so here we go....

Let's start it with "why" thing.

Why did I decide to write in English for this time? What makes me push myself so hard? It is not about sounds smart--coz I know exactly it won't work--instead of stupid. And I don't really care how it sounds actually. I just.....think...that....this is a must.

I mean, We've spent so many years of our time for education. Studied English twice a week since we were thirteen. But as a matter of fact, how many of us, Indonesian, are able to speak (and write) in English?. Was it all useless? The time we've spent in class all along, was it all for nothing?


Some of us--amazingly--able to speak in English fluently. With accurate pronunciation, all those words came out from them so effortless, natural, and flowing. Few of us are also able to write in English. I envy them for THIS. I'm just not one of them, who can speak and write whatever they want to write easily.

People say that: "Language is habit". So to be good at it, all you need to do is get used to it. Rather than spending your time around memorize the grammar and vocab it is much better to keep on use it. Coz if if you don't, you may loose it! To much focus on grammar is suck. It never work. Never! For example; as Indonesian, we have "Tata Bahasa". But to be good at speaking and writing in Bahasa, we don't have to know all of those rule, rite? Using "Tata Bahasa" makes us sound weird, cold, and boring. I guess no one wants to read any post which written like UUD (no thanks!).

All I'm saying is: this writing is one of my effort to study English. One of my effort of getting used to it. So it just another excuses. My excuses for bothering you, puzzling you, and make you bored.

but How could I Know if I never try?

  5. Hey... You're English pretty good, actually. :) And, don't underestimate yourself. At least, you have tried and that is should be appreciated.

    And yes, I agree with you. We're studying English since we were in elementary school. Often parents enroll us to English course. So that we're supposed to be good at English, right? Too bad is we don't practice what we have been studying outside school or our English course.

    So now, blog is a good place to practice your English, especially in writing. Hope that you (and me of course) will be consistent to write in English. :D

  7. Selamat, Mas Huda sekarang sudah jadi penutur bahasa Inggris dengan coba menulis posting dalam bahasa Inggris. Bukan perkara gampang menulis dalam bahasa lain. Karena, betul itu semua masalah kebiasaan berbahasa kita sehari-hari.

    Disaat banyak blogger lain yang masih berkutat memfokuskan diri bagaimana cara menulis yang baik, keputusan ini saya anggap sudah selangkah lebih maju dari para blogger lainnya yang masih belajar untuk menulis yang baik itu.

    So, untuk menjadi seorang internasional player, termasuk dalam blogging, kemampuan bahasa Inggris adalah wajib hukumnya. Wajib untuk dipelajari. Karena kalau tidak, kita hanya jadi pemain lokal saja.

    Ah, cukup saya aja yang sudah tua ini jadi pemain lokalnya dengan menulis content berbahasa lokal (Indonesia).
