I agree with the weirdo to an extent. He's 100% right when he says that the majority of the English schools in Brazil can't care less whether you are actually acquiring fluency or not. As we all know, unfortunately, English institutions have long become nothing but another business segment. Last year I taught for a couple of months at this school where we were by no means allowed to hold the students. Even though it was evident that some of them couldn't handle the next level we were forced to let them go. I remember once questioning the coordination about that to be told that the students should get what they were paying for in terms of years, if you get my drift.
Anyways, I do believe we should expose ourselves as much as we can to English. Try to spend time in an English speaking country, make friends with English speakers and whatnot. My understanding though is that in order to be above average, stand out, we oughta to hit the books on a daily basis as this will help us to cover the gaps we acquire along the way.
