"Dear Onee, I hope you don't mind my answering. As far as I know, people started using soap many centuries before BC. I don't know what you really mean but the first people who stared using soap were Babylonians. It was about 2800 BC.…"

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.

Writing Challenge: Write a Short Story

Posted on September 3, 2017 at 14:30 6 Comments

Hi, my friends! In August we started playing The Wheel Of Fortune again and here are the words we guessed.

SQUEAMISH (adj) defines a person easily made to feel sick, faint, or disgusted, especially by unpleasant images or sensations.

Example: Lila is really squeamish about cats and she never visits my house just because I have one.  

Synonym:  FASTIDIOUS.

INDEFATIGABLE (adj) defines a person…

How to Use an Adverb with the Infinitive

Posted on August 15, 2017 at 9:30 10 Comments

My friends, your boring teacher is back whether you like it or not. Correcting your mistakes on Tanya’s last test I noticed you not know what to do with an adverb if it modifies the infinitive. I don’t remember telling you about that. So, let me correct my mistake.

Some of you may think that the position of an adverb in a sentence is unimportant and you will be understood anyway. So, let me try to dissuade you.  We understand what you say. Let’s consider the…

I Saw a Nightmare Again!

Posted on August 14, 2017 at 10:00 26 Comments

Hi, my friends! You always make my day! No sooner had I returned to EC than you immediately enriched my great collection of your mistakes with a few fantastic expressions! Thank you very much! So, my nightmares are back! Hahaha! I have to admit borrowing some phrases and information from my personal correspondence with EC members. Many things I learned are not funny at all but they helped me think up the plot. As usual, I will not tell you the authors’ names but I believe they will recognize…

Hi, my dear friends! You are right, I have been missing you so badly! Where else can I torture my students without being punished? Where else can I hear such sweet words? Where else can I have such a great Fan Club? Most of all I have been missing the possibility of laughing out at your mistakes although you have…

My Last Nightmare. Full Stop!

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.

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

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

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.…
