Vocablog Challenge 03

So exams are over and I can continue the challenge!

Hope you remember that you don't have to stress on writing a Shakespearean piece, just a few lines are enough to practice new words. Just use then in context and try to remember ..

Here are the words:

Hallucination:  (Noun) : So tell me if you have seen something that does not actually exist or not really in front of you... and you are not dreaming as well, yes you are awake and you are hearing voices that are in your…

Buying Clothing

My friends, I see that one of the sentences on my last test turned out to be a true toughie! What a great sentence! It has already made me write my “nightmare blog” and makes me write one more blog as we all buy some clothes/footwear from time to time and should know the appropriate vocabulary. Some EC members may think I went nuts, such things are well-known! Yes, they are, but if you read what I did, you will agree it is time to tell learners what words and expressions to use speaking…

The key is to be readable

Yes, 'to be readable' means 'to be enjoyable and easy to read'. 

I can tell that you do have a great idea or topic or something fun to share with us. You even managed to write a blog about it, but only to find that other members don't seem to be so interested in it. You're so frustrating and wonder what's wrong with your blog. 

If that's true for you, you're not alone in feeling that. It's not easy for a learner to write something readable, even though they may have a wide…

Good day englishclub folks, 

I heard somewhere, or saw somewhere, about one english practice exercise. 

"Compose sentence or text using words, which exlude one letter "(any letter from alphabet).

For example, letter "S" - "I am very happy today. I woke up and realized that I have won 1 million dollar lottery", but of course, such letters like "S, X, Q, Z..." are very easy, so you can take any harder one.

Letter "E" -…

Try to memorize it this time

Yes, I mean 'try to memorize the word that you failed to memorize when you first saw it'. 

Some words are hard to memorize, even though you've tried to memorize them with all the means which you think are so effective. 

I agree that 'imagination' is the trick, but sometimes it doesn't work, too. For example, I can memorize the words 'adoption' and 'adaption' with imagination, but it seems there's no way for me to memorize the word 'leper' or 'seism' by using the imagination.…

Boredom

Hi everyone! It’s my first blog and it’s going to be about ‘’BOREDOM’’. It is expected that when you’ve read this blog you’d have learnt some new vocabulary, phrasal verbs and related idioms. So lets give it a go.

Boredom is the feeling you have, when you’re tired and sick of something, when you’re not enjoying anything, and you feel bad everything about. This feeling mostly comes when one is having…
