About Expector

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my page! Do you like the above photos I took when I was travelling in China? And, did you enjoy listening to the music on my wall? I hope so.

I'm not really an English teacher, though I often help learners learn English. I love English, which is a fantastic language and now a global one. I like to write and read blogs. I hope you can check out my blogs below - don't forget to leave your comment there and I'll respond.

I love MyEC. It's a great honour to be a moderator here. I'll do my best to help keep MyEC interesting, friendly and decent. I'd like to thank Josef and Tara for offering me such an opportunity to be a member of the excellent team here.

Enjoy!

"Great! Nice post. Yes, you can say that again. Sometimes the change can be so obvious. I'm glad you still have such a good memory while some of the elderly your age have already been suffering from Alzheimer's. "

Correct me in public

Hi Everyone,Just as you can see, I'll try to make some corrections for anyone who really wants to be corrected, or whenever I see the "correction tag", which means you don't mind others correcting you in public/openly.English is such a tricky language, so it's inevitable for you (a learner of English) to make some mistakes in your writing. In fact, we all make mistakes - even a native English teacher. But we learn from our mistakes.The problem is that we may have failed to spot the mistakes in…See More

Smith, I don't know how to explain correctly, actually here we say scale ( instead of ruler!) so, I used it. I think, I should call it as ruler and sorry for that typo...roller, yes, that has another meaning. Anyway you were not in EC for a couple of days, right? Thanks.
