As a journalist you might feel that you spend far too much time trying to improve your English. What’s more, you’re not at all satisfied with the results. Firstly, you still have trouble getting the right style as well as problems using communicative language when you write articles. Also, you have issues with your pronunciation and accent, which at times may make it difficult for your sources and colleagues to understand you easily. Another difficulty you have is finding the right words to express yourself when, for example, you interview people.
