Learning English 2

Hello everyone who reads these blog posts!

As a well-known doctor has said regarding 'fatal' diseases, 'everyone wants to have the Rolls Royce (or choose another top quality car) but when they see the payments, they settle for the Volkswagen Golf' (or a much less expensive car).  In other words, if you want quality, you need to invest your time and resources to get and keep it.

When students go into chat rooms to 'learn' English, they're attending to two of the key skills -…

When You Are Old by W.B. Yeats

Three things in my life that I'm not fond of; watching movies, ironing and reading poems. Well, I seldom, make it like only if you tied me at a tree and let loose those fire ants, read poems because I never understand them, to be honest. Sometimes it feels like I was reading gibberish. 

Anyway, tonight, while I was ironing, I was also listening (yes! I prefer listening to the television rather than watching it) to a movie called 'Chasing Leprechauns', I was struck by a beautiful poem…

Writing Challenge: Costume Party

Hello everyone,
here is my riddle and since I was in poetic mood, I made it as a poem :D sooooo...who am I?

I am black, quiete big and hairy,
I am also malicious and scary.
I am not so nice with people,
my nature is pretty simple.
My tongue is pink and long,
when you see me, stay strong.
I live in sort of warm place,
better don't look at my face!
I have horns and long tail,
sooo..think hard not to fail!

Writing Prompt ~ Similar but not the same

Hello guys,

lately I saw here many writing prompts, especially by afro and annah and I admire both for their creativity. So here I am with mine, I wanted to give it a try :)

It was a nice day, WEATHER was fantastic even though winter is around the corner. I woke up and was thinking, WHETHER to go for a trip or just to stay at home, since the kids were little bit coughing. MAYBE it would be the best solution to go alone, to enjoy few hours of loneliness. Why not? It MAY BE somehing… Continue

Using the English articles.

I'm talking about the/a/an.

If, like me, you come from a language that does not have articles as such (my native language is Russian), then those pesky little articles they've got in English can give you one hell of a, well ..., hell. 

If you don't have articles in your own language it can really be hard to wrap your head around the very concept of articles, like what do they even need them for in English, anyway? Like why say 'a dog' or 'the dog' and not just…

Last Trip to Mathura - Mathura birth place of Lord Krishna

We went to Mathura last Sunday via NH24 highway, which connects Delhi and UP. We visit Mathura every year in the month of Kartik to light a lamp.

Mathura is situated in the banks of river Yamuna. Mathura is the birth place of Lord Krishna.

We left the home early in the morning at 6.30am. It takes 4 hours from our home to reach Mathura by car. We reached Mathura at 10am. We parked our car near to one ghat of Yamuna River and went straight away to the Mathura Market. We then went…

Deepawali:The Festival of Light

A lamp with the flame always attracts me. I like to see  flames fighting with the darkness. Darkness shows ignorance. It means a flame fights with the ignorance. But its aura is limited. A limited place can be lit by a tiny lamp. In the kingdom of darkness, a tiny lamp…
