  • Dear twin,

    Well not sure failures make our life fun, but i agree they make it interesting and i would add that  they make us stronger. We wouldn't be who we are now if we didn't have to face failures. Thanks for your comment here, as you know it always put a smile on my face to see that you took time to check and to write a few words on my posts:))

  • Hello Ali Tayane,

    I am glad you found this video good. Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to write a comment here.

  • Very insightful video dear Manuela! Thanks a million times for sharing! failure seems scary but it makes life very interesting and fun. When you fail, you look for improvement and on the way to improvement, you meet amazing people or you read some interesting books or you visit some new places! So, life will be so fun with it even though it's really frightening to be failed!
  • Hello Skyandhill,

    You're right, that's why real friends are so important :)) Thanks for your interest and comment.

  • Hello Viviana,

    I am happy you appreciated this video. In fact i found it helfull too. Thanks for stopping by.

  • It's hard to accept errors in our lives, at least we can give them a sense;I think without doing that we lose twice.

    Thanks for sharing, it helps to be up, while exercising.

  • Hello Expector,

    So does that mean that, we should always fail before succeeding ?

    I prefer this sentence :"If you're not failing, you're not learning" because i have the feeling i have learned so much from my failures.
    Thank you very much for your interest to this video.

  • Hello Tara, 

    I am happy you found this video excellent. When i heard it, i thought it could be a very interesting comprehension excercice for us here. To answer your question, yes, I could figure out the second set of words when I first listen to it, except for "shoes and socks".


  • Yes, it's not a failure, just an experiment. You need to fail!
  • Thanks for sharing this enjoyable video! I like this sentence: 'If you're not failing, you're not trying hard enough.'
