Writing propmt: ible or able

Literally, I spent a terrible night yesterday. Whole night I couldn't sleep a wink. Actually I went shopping in the evening. But, it was a horrible experience by all means. Which dress I chose first was unaffordable. Then I went for another, I did bargain but the salesman made it nonnegotiable! After being failure, I went to dine in a fine restaurant with my family. There were plenty of edible food items but due to some unavoidable circumstances, I couldn't…

Did You Know - Curiosity Syndrome

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…

Comments are closed for this blog post?

In fact, I was puzzled too, and I tried to consult with Tara (the admin), and it turned out that the bloggers themselves disabled the…

Did You Know - The Court Is Ours

As usual, after coming back from a long holiday, my brain refuses to cooperate and think too hard. Thus, I need to stop this mental blockage and write something. But then the question is, what should I write? Another rambling? I don't think I want to torture other people with that anymore. So here comes my favourite topic, 'Did You Know?'. In this blog, it's about legal and justice, and hence the word 'court'.

1. Kangaroo Court

Kangaroo court means an unfair,…
