Featured Blog Posts (1,807)


Before I get started, let me begin by saying how good it is to once again have the time to chat and post with my good friends here. EC has always been a great source of personal inspiration. The chance to watch and experience new learners grow into linguistic proficiency is amazing and something I wish more of my fellow countrymen would take the time to do.

Here's ten things in no particular order that come to mind when thinking of MYSELF. The…

Thanks a lot!

Last month I posted a lot of blogs for Tara’s writing challenge. Other was doing the same at the same time. I spend most of my time in writing my blogs and reading other blogs as well. I read some awesome comments on my blogs too in which I found some great words of praising and admiration. I regret, I could not reply since I was busy in writing more and more blogs. So I am writing a separate blog for all who posted their nice…

Moving House

Moving or "Moving House" is something that many people do in their lifetime. I know many people are born and die in the same house, but in the modern world we may have to move for our jobs or to be near family members who moved.

I have moved many times, but it never gets easier and it never is any fun. If you have had to pack up and move to a new place you may understand why I don't enjoy moving. These are some of the steps that I don't enjoy.

1. Packing - carefully putting…

Walker's writing challenge" MYSELF"

I love walking in cool weather rather a bit cold, when cold breeze touches my face.

I love swimming and playing badminton. I can never imagine life without music. What a dull life it would be! I enjoy listening to music. I love looking at people’s faces in crowded places. I love observing young and…

Quantity or quality?

Yes, the amazing, strenuous June Blogathon is over. It's time we waved goodbye to it. That doesn't mean you'll never talk about it, though. In fact, we need to reflect on or ponder over it. 

Some members don't think it's a good idea to write so many blogs in such a short period of time. They felt overwhelmed, and didn't have time to enjoy or relish all the blogs, which sounds just like they bit off more than they can chew. They think…

2. We tried to think more, did brain storming, found various topics to write…

Walker's Writing Challenge: Myself "My Loves"

I love to …Dance! I dance when I’m cooking, I dance when I am taking a shower, I dance when I’m teaching (and my preschoolers love it and so we all dance together!)

Subsiding - the hustle and bustle

We've already crossed the finish line - we've smashed the record 580 blogs. We've set up a new record, and made history! That's incredible or unbelievable! 

580 blogs a month seemed to be unobtainable or unreachable, but it turned out we mede it to more than 580 blogs. According to the statistics, we now even have reached more than 600. And, we still have one day to go until the end of this month. 

Now, the hustle and bustle is subsiding. In fact, some members…

You are victorious!!

Victory is for those who don't get intimidated by the huge challenges. Victory is for the dauntless. Fear of failure only holds you back from what you might achieve. 

I had given up on this blogging challenge once. I thought we were not going to make it. But Seeker, Expector Smith and Mishaikh never abandon the ship. Blog by blog, you guys made it so far. 

One day when I came online, I read Smith's motivational…

What is Fluency?

I feel delighted whenever I speak in English. Actually every learner of a foreign language should feel proud since he is making sentences in a language that is not their native language.

Now the question is how easily and early we make sentence in English. It depends on our practice. With constant practice, a learner make English a part of his subconscious mind just like his…
