english (18)

We never expected that we are going to face this kind of challenge; to be separated with one another, to stop everything that we are doing and to do nothing but to stay at home. It is a heart breaking experience not to go outside and do the things that you love to do. This pandemic gives us different realizations about life.  With that I would like to share with you the things that I have realized with our current situation. And I hope that these things will somehow help you for your future plan

Poem: I wandered lonely as a Cloud

 

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could n

Poem: Life is fine

I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn't,
So I jumped in and sank.

I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn't a-been so cold
I might've sunk and died.

But it was Cold in that water! It was cold!

I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground.
I thought about my baby
And thought I would jump down.

I stood there and I hollered!
I stood there and I cried!
If it hadn't a-been so high
I might've jumped and died.

But it was High up there! It

Poem: Soloman Grundy

Wonderful poem and nursery rhymes dating back to 19th century England. It's rhyming will take a toll on your pronunciation skills. Do give it a try.

Soloman Grundy,

Born on Monday,

Christened on Tuesday,

Married on Wednesday,

Took ill on Thursday,

Grew worse on Friday,

Died on Saturday,

Buried on Sunday,

That was the end,

Of Solomon Grundy.

Music - A way to learn English

4495425353?profile=RESIZE_710x

Of late I have been listening a great deal of music. During lockdown it has proved to be my savior- a Knight in shining armor. Unimaginable, how I would have survived staying in without melody. Thought I should shed light on what role music plays in our lives.  Although there are many pros of listening music, I will be focusing on its transcendence in English learning.

First of all we need to take cognizance that music is not just playing of different instruments in a synchronized manner so that

As an English teacher and teacher trainer in Pakistan, I’ll admit that many times I have a lot of trouble understanding my students. Indian-Pakistani English has developed into its own unique dialect over the years, and although the Desi population may understand each other perfectly, speakers of standard dialects may be left completely befuddled. Improve your English and make sure you’re understood by avoiding these common mistakes.

Hello, my dear friends!
 
Do you ever wish you were able to play a musical instrument?
