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 Last Nightmare. Full Stop!

Posted on May 31, 2017 at 14:30 0 Comments

Well, it is my last blog. It is not so easy for me to say “Good-bye!” as you became part of my life, but I’d like you to learn at least something from my last lesson. Onee is right, a teacher will always remain a teacher. I’d like you to know the reasons of my decision and to make your conclusions not to repeat such mistakes. This time my nightmares will be based on real events although your mistakes helped me think up the plot. Here are a few words about the mistakes.

  1. “To…

We Get What we Deserve

Any person is allowed to express his mind even before the execution.  Nobody has abrogated freedom of speech, yet. So, let me say a few words. I joined EC as I felt like teaching you good English. But instead of learning, you turned this site into a regular social network. I don't like it and I am leaving. If you feel like saving some of my explanatory blogs, it is time for you to do it. I am posting this blog for you not to start any discussions like "Evangelina, where are you?" I do know,…

It might have been my last graduation

Posted on May 27, 2017 at 17:00 20 Comments

Well, I should not have told about my feelings here, but I can't stand! Yestreday was my 30th graduation ceremony and it might have been the last. I am not that old to retire but I'd like to change something in my life. Getting older we start undersanding and reappraising old values. After a few recent events in…

My Travel in Time

Posted on May 23, 2017 at 11:01 20 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 42 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…

Some More Explanations: It Takes.., It is Time...

Posted on May 19, 2017 at 15:11 30 Comments

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 think you are already missing some interesting writing challenge, aren’t you? After reading and replying Luci’s last blog about our ancestors, I got an idea of the challenge dedicated to the time travel. Let’s travel back in time! I hope it will be interesting, exciting or even thrilling.…
