#Pronunciation wasn't very big priority at school and most of my English comes from #IRC and fantasy books and neither cared about how I speak, it's when I go abroad or have to #VoIP when the problems come.
How have you learned to actually speak English assuming you aren't native? And how did you find the time for it?
I am listening to my #pronunciation lesson recording now. It is good to remind myself some new tips I learned. To be honest, I feel I sound good. I will see what will happen after practicing with my mentor(he does not like to be a teacher).

My mom was recommending we medicate Kipper for his anxiety (after my brother realized I'm stuck in the house because of Kipper and related this to her).
I have mixed feelings. I think Kipper needs something, but I'm not sure medication is the answer. I think it's worth talking to the vet or a trainer though.
People with more doggo experience (especially with Separation Anxiety) is this something that can change, or is my dog always gonna be like this?

I was thinking about the day we got Kipper. We almost got a different #dog (A pibble). We didn't get that one because his stitches (from neutering) opened up.
But basically, the pibble was said to have separation anxiety.
Kipper most certainly has separation anxiety*. Did they not diagnose it in Kipper or was the pibble WORSE?
Lately I think about this a lot.
*Kipper was most certainly abandoned. I think separation anxiety is fair.
Last night at the arcade bar they were screening #HighScoreGirl. I didn't know what it was, and I was taking quick peeks at it during short breaks of my gaming. I thought it was pretty unique to see Japanese animation interspersed with lots of actual footage from 1990s arcades.
After some searching online, I found it and just watched the first episode. It's pretty good! Pretty goofy and childish, but I enjoyed it. It explains several videogame techniques and reminds me of my childhood.
This time I have to speak about my communication style.hmm The topic is too broad. I might talk that I have changed over 2 years thanks to #toastmasters and Spanish community. I can talk about Japanese myself too. The title would be how I changed myself in Canada.
Online resource is not user-friendly. It discourages me to prepare a speech.🙄 #tosatmasters
We had 2 experienced speakers from other #toastmasters group. They are like coaches. On of them made a long speech "how to be a better swimmer". It sounds dull but it was fun to listen. I like to try some tips from his speech. I am too lazy to go to the pool though.
I did a toast master role tonight. I did well in front of 12 people. Next week I will make a long speech. I have to prepare beforehand. I am a bit busy weekday.
I will get a prepared speech role for next week. I do not feel like but I am supposed to make a speech every month to finish 10 speeches in a year. #toastmasters

I did a listening section of #Ielts today. I got 36/40. My score will be 8.0. Master courses require over 7.0 normally. I should focus on writing to make sure that I can get over 7.0 all the time.
Do I have to take a speaking assessment just in case? I have been a toastmaster over a year. I deserve over 7.0 for sure. maybe.
Day to go back to work.😇 Yesterday I went to an event at the library to play music together. There were older people except for me and the organizer. I did not enjoy so much as usual for some reasons.
I talked with the organizer lady after the event. I missed her show since I got the wrong date. Maybe it was my fault. She is planning to have more shows in the future. I might ask her to do something together next week.
