EnglishClub's social network
I have never started any general discussions, but I do feel like doing it today. First, I will tell you about my friend, my collaborator and a member of my band who died in a car crash about two…Continue
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.
Well, my friends and learners, as usual I’d like to explain some sentences from my tests for you to gain some knowledge. Today, I will explain some infinitive constructions as you seem to have a lot of doubts about using them.
Here are my incorrect sentences from my tests.
1. The question was very unexpected that I could not answer it.
2. You know English well enough so that you can write such great blogs.
Of course, you…Continue
Well, this lady is not shallow, she is dangerous, but so seducing although once she said she likes women more! I am unsure of what she meant, but it sounds even more tempting! Being a woman of moods, she can annihilate a man with one word or make him feel on the heaven! She has a razor-sharp tongue, whatever she says may hurt. She is tough and sarcastic, she is atheistic and don’t you even try to say a word about being created by god at her…Continue
She is still young but her points of view are so thoughtful and profound! When I read some of her blogs for the first time, I was just shocked! I wish my real students thought at least partially like her! She has very high moral standards, I would say she is such a perfectionist and I think she may suffer because of that as others may get her wrong. I think she may feel solitary and lonesome in her real life, but not here as we all adore this girl!…Continue
First of all, I'd like to thank our dear Luci for this great opportunity! I think many of us are glad to tell about ourselves and to express our feelings to others. Well, here is one more story.
She is mature, thoughtful, prudent, full of common sense. Whatever discussion she replies, she always finds the right words to express her mind and not to offend anyone. Her opinions are always weighed and grounded. Her life experience helps her find…Continue
My dear friends and students, dear Sir Josef, our dear admins! Although I have been EC member for not that long, I can't help expressing my admiration as I always do on the occation. I had never joined any social networks before my wife told me about EC. I had always thought it is just waste of time. But now I realize my delusion. Sir Josef created such a great site, such a great community of people holding the same views or, at least having the same purposes. It is the free space for…Continue
My friends, as I've got a great reply on my blog, I can't help sharing it with you together with my reaction. I hope, it will make you birst out in laughter if you don't even know its background. Sure, it is just a joke, don't take it serious!
My opponent posted her ideas this morning after my telling her I am…Continue
