Another BEC challenge! And the fifth week’s theme: What is BEC to you?
I created my WordPress blog in early 2014. I had no idea what to write about. But then, I started posting football articles in English. But it seemed no one was interested in football like me, I got no response for every single of my article. I was so inactive 2014. In December, I joined Writing 201 Longform course (Blogging U) where I met a lot of nice fellow bloggers. I started feeling excited to do blogging since then. But I didn’t find any Indonesian there. And I’m so happy here in Blog English Club (BEC) I can interact with many Indonesian bloggers. I actually hesitated to join BEC at first- because of my bad English- but my willingness to learn has encouraged me to do so.
It’s fun to be part of BEC. It helps me to improve my English, enhances my creativity to write some worth reading posts, and makes me more disciplined to post regularly. It’s nice to see the BEC members give feedback to each other. BEC gives us different challenge every week. And each member will write based on the topic with their own styles. It’s always interesting to see something from different perspectives. It obviously gives you more knowledge and insight. I learn a lot from many awesome bloggers here. They have great writings on their blogs. I envy them a little bit, yet it encourages me to do more for my self-improvement. So, I can say BEC has become one of the fun ways to learn. That is what BEC means to me.
It’s probably too early to say, but considering the massive response to BEC in the first few weeks, it’s not impossible BEC will be one of the Indonesian big forums for those (bloggers, in particular) who want to learn English or to improve their English more. I can see BEC becoming an integrated community and cozy place to learn English in nearly future. Hopefully, and I believe, BEC will continue taking the consistent steps to broaden the scope in order to take a role in education. That is my wish. Thanks to the admins and mentors. And to all BEC members, I am happy to connect with you all here. Viva BEC!
