Somebody know life is difficult, but that they know what the difficult meaning? It truly a challenging that measured how brave or good you are. So keep going with your life.

Answering Cristian's Question...Maybe you can help.

Cristian asked me a question today, and I thought I would pose the question to everyone here at myEC, as you can probably answer it better than I can.

Why is everybody turning to you, when they first join this site?

You are the first person that I found here. Why is that?

It's an interesting question. Do lots of people find my blog?

How did you find my blog?

Why do you think so many people enjoy my blog?

Thank you for your insight.… Continue

New Newsletter Issue: Speaking with a Doctor

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all doing well. It has been a while since I have been able to post on my blog.

My back is not getting better, but I went to my doctor yesterday and I have an appointment to get an MRI and also some blood work done. (I'm crossing my fingers that my back is ok and that I don't have a serious problem).

After going to the doctor I realized that going to see a doctor and speaking in a different language (than your native tongue) can be… Continue

ThinK +ve XD

the global situation may look gloomy but I choose to take a +ve point of view.

to me, it is an indication that if we fail to look at ourselves,nature will create conditions to compel us to do so.this is exactly what is hapenning we are compelled to face problems such as pollution,deforestation and open burning.the 1st word "+ve" is a symbol of is something which elevates,enriches,expands and grows.after all,one is a part of the whole and can survive only as long as the… Continue

Latin dance competitor

Dance is a flood of passion in my blood.

In the past, when I cound not dance any steps, I used to dream about dances, couples in ballroom with spectaculor performances. I wanted to be him. I wanted to live in my dream, in the movies about dance.

Now I am an amateur dancer. I have just dance for 1 years.

It's so great. And I'm dancing forever.

What's your best childhood memory?

Hi people.

If you want for a time to emerge your memories from your childhood, this is the right place. I think, if possible, it would be interesting if there was someone available to correct our mistakes , so we can improve, what, by the way, is everybody's wish.

We would be grateful


My best childhood memories are my holiday trips with my grandma. My grandma was a nice, funny person and loved travelling; I think it's because of her I like… Continue

Maybe this is a boring topic to open here. But I was thinking of how many times we Americans talk about the weather in conversation. We say that when we don't know what to talk about with another person or we 'run out of' (no longer have something) things to say, we can always talk about the weather.

I bring this up (mention it) because I tutor a student one-on-one each week and she said in the country where she comes from they don't really talk about the weather as much as we Americans… Continue

What are the results of learning more than a language?

Learning a language is the best tool to deal with other people who speak that language.

Because the language learnt is a path for the learner to know more about these or those people,countries,other traditions,habits,cultures,civilizations,etc.The learner can make many friends,money,business..all things that he/she could get.By languages learning a person can come close to other people,other countries,etc;his/her expriences get developed.

For exmple,me when I was learning English…

I DREAMED A DREAM - I love this song !

Keep an eye on singer's face. That's emotion!

Fantine - I Dreamed a Dream


There was a time when men were kind

When their voices were soft

And their words inviting

There was a time when love was blind

And the world was a song

And the song was exciting

There was a time

Then it all went wrong

I dreamed a dream in time gone by

When hope was high

And life worth… Continue

I learned a new word

Thanks to English club news letter,today I learned a new word that is "to bully", which means to exercise violence on others in order to establish a certain psychological equilibirium.
