Improving your English with DT

posted on 30th of march, 2010

Besides all the photo oriented knowledge at DT there is also a positive side effect for non native English speakers: It improves your English!

Before I joined DT I thought my English is quite good. I did learn it for 8 years at school, one
year English lessons at the University (yes, I was quite lazy at school with learning English).
Moreover I do work in an international company for nearly 20 years with many foreign colleagues - so English is in my daily use, at least the technical English.

But joining DT improved my vocabulary for many areas which were "black holes" for me before.
The tedious key word search alone is a healthy way to improve my word pool.

So, thanks a lot for this positive side effect!

We all are in the learning process one way or the other.
(by the way your English is now flawless)

Even for English natives, I'm sure it's not always easy to put good words to images. We're not used to using words as much as before, all communication is usually very quick. So, definitely yes, a good exercise for the brain.
By the way, what happened to your avatar picture since your previous blog?
