It’s the moment for the new beginning in my English acknowledgement. What does this mean? I still don’t really know, but it’s clear that something should be done. That’s probably the first step as I consider that my written English ran the risk to become rustier. Is it possible to write weekly a post in English? Will I be enough confident to publish it without no correction from anyone else? Will people understand the many mistakes I will probably do? Yeah, I hope so.
