I noticed that when you add a picture to your blog entry. You can specify the position of picture, if the text is wraped around of it, and u can create a thumbail, but it miss one important thing. Margins around the image. Well. It's fine not to have it, since the dialog wouldn't fit to screen with too many opinions. But it adds 0 pixels of clearance as default. In my opinion it doesn't look nice when text douches the picture. In both cases when picture is aranged to left and also when it's on… Continue

This poem is meaningful to me. I first saw this at the bookstore long time ago... (during my high school days) I had spent some spleepless nights pondering about this poem, but because of some reasons, I couldn't get a copy of it. Though, I was able to give it as a gift to a dear friend, I couldn't have a copy for myself. Then after some years, when it was completely out of my mind, the poem came to me again. This time, it's mine for I received it as…

Watch films in English with subtitles.
Watch film on a computer, on laptop, on digital player. Make sure you can pause the film any time. When you hear interesting phrase and you already know where you are going to use it, pause the film, write out a new phrase. In the end you’ll probably have 20-50 new phrases. Do not write out every phrase. Start with film that you’ve already seen in your native language many times

1. Motivation . You have to answer to these questions: English – for what? Speak English – with whom, what topics, in what situations? Imagine your life in details in 6 months. How English can change your life?
2. Aim. Make “Learner’s plan”. You MUST learn not less than 20 phrases by heart in a day. Not just words, but phrases or even sentences. On Sunday you’ll know 140 phrases, in a month - 560, in 6months – 3360. You have to register the time of your lessons. Not less than 12 hours in a… Continue

Beside of watching Animes and doing nothing. I like sometimes to draw something. Usually it's some unknown Anime/cartoon-like caracter. It's easier to draw those, because when some limb happens to gome out too big, or bigger than it's partner, when whole posture looks like it falls down. I can allways say, that it's just a feature, not an error. Although when drawing with computer. Mistakes are easyer to fix. Especially when using vector graphic editor like Inkscape. I still have big trouble to… Continue

My 1st blog will definitely be about introducing myself. I'm Polomi.
I have a beautiful life as blessed by the Almighty. I'm an optimist, of every success and complications that come through my life. Even an year ago I was not the way I am today. I was shy and followed others. I always thought that the kind of person I really am might not be acceptable to the others. So insisted myself to become someone preferable to everybody. But then I… Continue

A special Thank you dear Nafis and Josef Essberger for trying to help.
You know, I opened an account in hotmail, and I tried to transefer some of the files just to test the operation, but unfortunately, I received nothing. So what comes to my mind is just try to resend them to my new webmail account as if replying to the message received via changing the address é mail to the one that is mine.
Genius idea. Isn't it. And despite the fact that it is gonna be a hard task to accomplish, I… Continue

The upcoming Chinese lunar new year is called 'year of the ox'. Every lunar year has a different kind of animal to name the year. Only 12 kinds of animals are chosen. In addition to 'ox', the others are 'rat', 'tiger', 'hare', 'dragon', 'snake', 'horse', 'sheep', 'monkey', 'cock', 'dog', 'boar'.
Why the ancient Chinese chose these animals as the symbols: a long story. Every animal means differently to the people living in the land thousands of years ago. But, to me, what's important… Continue

My father told me that he had left three things for me, his good reputation, books and his cassettes. He gave me a notebook filled with famous poems from reknown poets. He gathered this collection since his childhood. This notebook accompanied him in life hardship and now he gave it to me. My father said he did not have huge money or property to leave, except these cultural products and he emphasized that nothing is important than righteousness and good reputation in life.These are his legacy… Continue

Of course I accepted but I didnt know even what chatclub means... Anyway... at that time ELS didnt require a password, and maximum 50 people could be online simultaneously. Sometime later it increased to… Continue

When you look for friends on MyEC or in other social networks do you check out
the grey heads? I don't. I usually skip over
people who haven't uploaded an avatar
. Making friends in a virtual world is already a bit strange. We can't shake hands or look into each other's eyes. However, when I can see your picture I feel like I know you a little better. I can put a face to a name
. Even if you choose a setting or a caricature
I will look at your… Continue

Greetings From Turkish Republic! I have got another blog. In my spare time I add things which I like, but entries are in my mother language. I add videos, pictures, news, articles, jokes and so on. In another word, everything that I like and dislike which deserves to be published my in my blog.
For many years I worked on it. But one day I noticed that my blog was blocked! I searched and learnt that a state court of my country blocked my blog's server. The reason was that some people… Continue

I have been wondring about a subject to start with, but I did not find any. so, I'll let it come spontaneously. You know, I liked this new version of Engish Club: new options, more freedom to express oneself by adding photos,making friends and sharing things and ideas with them.
I wish the best of luck to every body mainly to the founder of English Club JOSEF ESSBERGER
