I came to united States a year ago I am a legal resident, I have a degree in Business Administration with a specialization in marketing,I have experience in marketing I worked for a newspaper in my country, but I could not find a job in my field because my English is not very good yet I understand very well but I can not express myself correctly, I am currently taking courses in English to improve. I wish someone would give me some advice.. I've thought about doing volunteer work for any company (without pay )to gain more experience and also can be a good way to improve my English,but I do not know how do it
should I look for an internship or volunteer work???
how could I look for companies??? I live in North Carolina
how to offer my services, what can I put in my cover letter to be accepted??
Is it a good idea or not?
some advice please

I don't have any really good advice, but I commend you for wanting to improve your English language skills. With your attitude, I'm sure you will do fine! My significant other teaches English as a second language to younger children here in Greensboro, so I understand the difficulty you are having - I am trying to teach myself Portuguese with Rosetta Stone, but just living here I think your English will improve by leaps and bounds with time.

thank you for you comment!!! I realy hope that can be as you say, but sometimes is a little frustrating for me, and I know that learn another language is a hard work , maybe in the future someone may will invent a chip that you can put in to the brain and learn everything.. LOL

Ha ha Let me know when they make the chip! I know when English is a second or third language it is very hard to to understand why we spell things the way we do or say certain phrases. They make an interesting phrasal verb dictionary you could pick up that will explain a lot of the odd little things people say in every day conversation. I had never seen anything like it until a few weeks ago.

Sounds interesting I will look for it, also on the internet I have found very helpful tools there is a site.. Livemocha.. where you can do a lot of activities and interact with other people who want to learn your language and they exchange activities, you should try! can be helpful for you with your portuguese
