Have you notice that we are about to reach the figure of 3000 random questions (aka 'General Discussions') asked in the MyEC's Discussion Forum?
Life is full of questions, right? :P

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…Continue

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.
I'm such a philanthropist... …Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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)

Look down at your belly: What do you see? Yes, it's your navel. Let's contemplate it!
This is a blog to review our own activity and to find out all the cool stuff we've written in the form of an EC blog!
Think about some of these new (and kind of lost) EC members who are coming here for first time and don't know anything about you or your activity in EC, but you would like them to get to know it: Which 5 blogs would you suggest them to read from your list…Continue
