We all are learners.
Either we are learning the ways of living from people around us or we are learning the ways of accompanying latest traditions.
We all are great learners in our own way.

Even teachers have teachers.
I am into blogging profession from around 2 years and I have gone through many ups and downs.
I remember the days when I wrote my first article (without much knowledge of grammar and all) and then I continued writing many other articles.
The only thing stopping me was my WRITING.
I was able to express my thoughts and deliver them to my readers but there was one big skill lacking in me, which was GRAMMAR.
I kept on doing many mistakes and with the help of my readers I rectified them too. The main problem was being a non-English writer. English is not my first language so some mistakes were very obvious.
Many times my readers were sending me mails and writing in comment section about my mistakes. In 80% of the cases I tried to rectify my mistakes but they were hidden in front of me (because as per my knowledge they were correct, but they were not).
Around 20 days back I decided to join English class in my native place itself and started rectifying my grammatical mistakes.
I was surprised to see that I was making very common mistakes and no doubt all these mistakes were present in almost all my articles.
How My Teachers Helped Me?
First of all I was extremely lucky that I got two very co-operative teachers.
They were the teachers whom I was always looking for.
So the very first task for me was to make tuning with them so that I can make them understand my intention to learn English and they can devote their maximum time to teach me.
A very awe-inspiring moment came when I came to know that my teacher is just 20 years old. This was very crucial moment when I decided to do my best, because if she could deliver such an awesome quality content then why cannot I?
I was very much inspired to see her knowledge and common sense.
They are continuously helping me to clear more of my doubts and I am putting as much questions as I can.

I am going to attend few more classes and I will continue to learn more basics of English so that I can deliver a great content for my readers.
My special thanks to both my teachers who are giving their best to teach me technicalities of English and helping me join hands with people who are very keen readers.
