It was a rainy cold Sunday morning. A little girl Anna woke up earlier than usual and as she didn't want to disturb her sleeping parents, she grabbed her favorite book, started flipping through the pages and within a few minutes she got immersed into her fantasy world. What…Continue
On my challenge about inventions, one of my EC friends, Rahul Wazir, wrote: “If I were an inventor, I would design a device recording pets’ thoughts.” His idea sounded very interesting for me as I have always loved pets and always wanted to know what they think about us. Besides, I have always been interested if they react to the words or just intonations, if they “understand” different languages. So, this blog is for those who love pets!
When I just joined EC I posted a few blogs…Continue

"Small talks" are the reason why most of my neighbors think I'm crabby and unfriendly. If I'm locked in the elevator with someone, I don't need to know how is the f***ing weather!!! I just came from the street for Godiva sake! If you don't really have anything to tell can you just keep silent for the 30 SECONDS that last the elevator's trip??!!…Continue
A few days ago I was asked to to expain how to use SHALL and WILL and I decided to post this blog for everyone to be able to read it.
To use SHALL/SHOULD with the first-person subject sounds old-fasionate now.
In modern English, especially in American English SHALL is used very rarely. Internationally, WILL is the standard choice for expressing future plans and expectations,…Continue
Dear friends, as you all like writing different stories using the direct speech and quotations, I decided to tell you how to do it correctly. Here are a few easy rules we should follow.
1. We should always quote the direct speech, the quotations and the words we use in some figurative sense.
She said, “I am leaving.” (The direct speech)
I believe “there is no place like home.” (A proverb)
Mishaikh said, “I have been “run over” by…Continue

Yes, it makes sense to know sentence structure since a blog or an article is made of sentences - only when you can make sentences can you compose a piece of writing.
Indeed, there are just 4 types of sentences: simple sentence, compound sentence, complex sentence, compound-complex sentence. For…Continue
Don't show me your sonogram. What am I supposed to say? Hmm? That it looks just like you? Or can I have a copy? See me when it (you heard me, "it") becomes bitter and jaded.
Goes through different phases 24/7.
Changes hair color like a chameleon.…Continue
The kids had gone and the old man took a cup of coffee from the coffee pot on the stove, filled a glas with lemonade for the boy and took a seat on his old armchair opposite the boy. Between both stood only an old wooden table. On the table lay some journals, some medical journals and some about gardening and farming.
The boy took a sip of lemonade, looked at the old man and said: "I have seen a shelf with…
Reading Danny’s Writing Challenge: Back to Idioms and Phrasal Verbs I over-confidently thought that it was not a big deal and I would run off a story based on all the idioms provided by him. But that was not the case. I ran on thinking how to cope with it. I ran my mind hard over some hints, some points, some ideas, but my mind was totally blocked. It seemed that I was running like a hairy goat. I was feeling like I ran out of all the…Continue
My friends, I have written my story to demonsrate the use of idioms. It is a true story. Enjoy and learn!
Well, I often run myself into the ground overworking and taking to heart what isn’t worth a bean. But about 3 years ago I decided to reward myself and bought a very good expensive car I had always dreamt about. It was just an ordinary spring day I will never forget, it was already hot and rainy and I decided to get to work by my new car I was still running in. It was…Continue
My dear friends, I couldn't decide what task to propose you. I wanted to post something both useful and interesting. But yesterday I saw a car accident on the highway. Fortunately, there happened nothing serious and it helped me come up with this idea.
Well, the idea is following. I will tell you some idioms and phrasal verbs with the verb TO RUN and will ask you to…Continue
Brain—epitome of the universe
August 15, 2002
All the material wealth created by man is a realistic reflection of man’s brain. Man’s thinking, memory, speech, and actions are all attributes of human brain. That a society can be organically united to accomplish a goal is also the result of brain activity. All Nobel Prize winners and great men in history distinguish themselves from others because they have made full use of their brains.
Scientists are still…Continue

Upon a time lived an old man near to a little village and everyone of the local peopleo had heard about him but nobody has known him so really. He lived outside of the village in an old farm house. The house was very old but it was surrounded by a beautiful flower garden.
He always had gone very rarely to the small village. Only if he needed buying some things from the little store,…
