"No, you describe character again. But this adjective describes behavior. OK, I will give you one more clue, but it will be the last. What adjective will you use to describe a country starting wars, sticking its nose into others' business?"

We exist on the Earth to make it better place to live

My Self-introduction

Dear friends! I have just joined the EC as my wife has been its member for many years and always talks about you. We do have a lot in common, but why not to have more? I am a native speaker and hope to be useful. But no grammar questions, please! Tanya says I am illiteral and I always ask her to correct my articles before having them published.

A few words about myself. I have been born and raised in Boston. My mother and my grandfather were university teachers at Harvard and I grew up with the idea that education, knowledge, common sense and human reason are the most valuable in this world. However, living through my life I realized there is much more to it! But being a university teacher I should tell you: knowledge is our main power. It is not weapons that makes us stronger, it is only our desire to make this word better than it is.

I'd like to show you the place where we live. It is really wonderful. I have been living in Florida for 30 years and I swear, I have never seen such beauty although I traveled much. We live in a rather small town called Crystal River, in the mid-Florida. It is at the west coast, not far from Tampa. The fact is that the river is really very clean. Its water is transparent and one can see everything on the bottom. I am not a master of photo, so I will add the one from the net. You won't believe that ocean creachers like lamatees live here. I have no idea who permitted to build a nuclear power station here! Anyway, come to our land and be our guests or stay forever.

My Travel in Time

Posted on May 23, 2017 at 11:01 16 Comments

Well, as it was me who proposed this time travel, it is time to add my story. Thanks to Estanis we have already visited Spain in 1492 trying to prevent the expulsion of non-Christians. Thanks to Luci we have also visited Austria and consulted Dr. Sigmund Freud. We even proposed him to invent some new therapy for some EC members! LOL! As to me, I will take you to Germany in 1876.…

My Nightmares. Part II

Posted on May 22, 2017 at 19:30 41 Comments

My friends, your writing inspire me so much that I can’t help sharing my new nightmares with you! Hahaha! Are you ready? Well, first of all, I will explain the mistakes that made me roll on the floor laughing.

  1. “She was wearing a blue shirt and white pant.” The word "pant" (singular) means short breath when a person breathes with short, quick breaths, typically from exertion or excitement. With the attribute "white" it may mean slight pant from…

Some More Explanations: It is for You...., It is Up to You...., It is Me Who....

Posted on May 20, 2017 at 13:30 13 Comments

Well, I decided to go on explaining the sentence patterns although, to my great surprise and disappointment, almost nobody seems to be interested. OK, let it be EC heritage!

Today I will tell you about a few other patterns. I will start with “It is for you..” as one of the learners tried to use it in her reply and did it incorrectly. So, here is the pattern:

  • It is + for + indirect object + infinitive…

My friends, today I have decided to tell you about a few sentence patterns as I saw such mistakes made by some upper-intermediate students and it is inadmissible because such sentences are commonly used.

The first pattern is

  • It takes (+ indirect object) + time + infinitive

This sentence means a quantity of time usually required for anyone or a particular person to complete a task. We can use…

My friends, I decided to post this blog to explain how to use so called inclusives as the sentence with one of them causes a lot of problems on my current test. I came across such mistakes in many blogs and it is time to tell you about such constructions.

The expressions not only ... but also, both ... and, and as well as mean in addition to. Like entities must be used together (noun with noun, adjective with adjective, etc.). All forms must be parallel.…

The Gerund or the Infinitive?

Posted on May 11, 2017 at 12:30 16 Comments

Dear friends, I have been asked more than once to write a blog about the gerund and the infinitive. You know there are some verbs and adjectives followed by the gerund as well as the verbs and adjectives followed by the infinitive only. But the problem is that the lists from different sources are not exactly the same. So, I decided to choose the lists from the TOEFL Preparation Guide.…

I don’t want to add myself to your problems, not to anyone else either. Our evil side is always there, but she should know when to shut up and sleep, the good side shall prevail. I will reiterate, I don’t have any beef at all. Smiles from here!
