Introduce Yourself to the World in English

You are not alone in your English learning journey.

There are many other people just like you, from all around the world, learning English in dynamic new ways, and we are here to support you, to offer you orientation, and to help you connect with other learners.

We invite you to listen to RLE members from all around the world introduce themselves in English and their native language (or if your native language is English – as it is with me, I introduce myself in Portuguese, a language that I’m learning), and add RLE community members to your facebook.

participate in the RLE “Meet the World” Community Building Project.
