Believe English

You Can Do It!

The Believe in Believe English is about you.

I have been to many places in the world and been very lucky to meet many wonderful people, sometimes because we had English as a common language.  I am always thankful to them, and to you, for learning English.

There are also some sweet and wonderful people I have not met.  Not really.  Sometimes people think, “My English is not so good, so I can’t talk with you.”  You can talk to me.  I will always listen to you.

You don’t need to have good English, you just need to have a good heart.

I know this because there are some languages that I speak very, very badly.  And there are some people who have listened to me  very, very kindly.

We can always understand each other.

It is nice when we have a common language.
It does make things easier.
The most important thing is that we believe in each other.
When we want to understand each other, anything is possible.


Here’s a poem, Scaffolding, by Seamus Heaney that helps me to understand the balance between language and trust.
What do you think about the poem?  What does it mean to you?
