WEEKEND READING CLUB - Kafka and the traveling doll.

The story says that Franz Kafka encountered a little girl in the park where he went walking daily. She was crying. She had lost her doll and was desolate.

Kafka offered to help her look for the doll and arranged to meet her the next day at the same spot. Unable to find the doll, he composed a letter from the doll and read it to her when they met.

“Please do not mourn me, I have gone on a trip to see the world. I will write you of my adventures.” This was the beginning…

WEEKEND READING CLUB - Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast.

- "I wish I could manage to be glad!" the Queen said. "Only I never can remember the rule. You must be very happy, living in this wood, and being glad whenever you like!"

- "Only it is so very lonely here!" Alice said in a melancholy voice; and, at the thought of her loneliness, two large tears came rolling down her cheeks. 

- "Oh, don't go on like that!" cried…

Uh-oh, erm... Expand your Vocab!

I've found this graphic about how to replace the (very often used) word "very" with other words and I thought it could be nice to share it here.

At this time of the season (end of June) the very ancient pagan cultures used to celebrate the Summer Solstice; also called: Midsummer or Litha. In my country it's called St. John's Day because catholic people basically took all the pagan celebrations and turn them into catholic ones for…

Wordless (and Moooo-less) Wednesday

Aloha EC birds!

Since our cool EC Member chose my caption for her picture, here I come with a new image for the game. 

I took this picture two days ago, when I was driving back home from work. I couldn't help but to pull over and take a pic of these…

The story of when I left another Learning English site

I think i've told this story sometime here in the chat; or I've written about it in a comment before. I can't really remember. But now I feel like sharing it here in this blog.

Before coming here, I was member of another English learning site (Italki, but don't even bother looking for it, it sucks now) It was just like MyEC but more active and it was cool till a biggest company bought it and changed everything to make it all commercial: They removed the chat room…

Bed Time.

Did you know today was the World Sleep Day??!!!!  ...I didn't and I wasted all this long day being awake!! Shame on me! :((((

To 'celebrate' this day, here I've put together some random pointless facts about sleep that I know you can't wait to learn:

Woman is the Nigger of the World.

Can anyone please tell me what is the difference between discriminate someone because of the color of the skin and to discriminate someone because of the gender??  Because... call me crazy but I think the difference is: NONE at all. To be racist is as bad as to be sexist. Let's see if we can finally fix this in our society's minds.

Most of you probably have heard about the controversial image of the clothing store…

Word of the Year

Aloha there.

Here I come with my last blog... The last of this year, at least.

As every year, I'm always curious about which words are considered the most popular ones, taking in mind some events of the year. So, there it goes:

Oxford Word of the Year (2017)


"A significant cultural, political, or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people".
