A lot of 'word roots' are Greek or Latin originated, which may seem alien or unfamiliar to you. It may be so helpful if you can pronounce the word correctly. The most effective way, though, may be…See More

About Expector

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my page! Do you like the above photos I took when I was travelling in China? And, did you enjoy listening to the music on my wall? I hope so.

I'm not really an English teacher, though I often help learners learn English. I love English, which is a fantastic language and now a global one. I like to write and read blogs. I hope you can check out my blogs below - don't forget to leave your comment there and I'll respond.

I love MyEC. It's a great honour to be a moderator here. I'll do my best to help keep MyEC interesting, friendly and decent. I'd like to thank Josef and Tara for offering me such an opportunity to be a member of the excellent team here.

Enjoy!
