They find MyEC interesting and enjoyable; they feel so comfortable with MyEC and will sign in on MyEC first thing tomorrow; they seems to really enjoy writing blogs and leaving comments - they…Continue
Many years ago I could have told you that being a lady was the worst thing to be.The world I was born into made me think being a lady was inferior and thus one had to act like a man.One had to be aggressive in order to be heard.I tried as much to talk like one, dress like one and even act like one.Despite this I knew that something was wrong.I felt that I could not fit in because I was neither man nor woman.Through many years of hiding in search of my identity and acceptance became more…Continue
My father and his wife are doing some traveling this month. Their cruise ship made a stop in Belgium this week, and my stepmom shared an excerpt from her travel diary that I thought you might be interested in.

My stepmom gave me permission to share her excerpt with you. I hope you find this post as interesting as I did. Maybe it…Continue

Hello every one, nice to meet you, and I would like to make friend with all you to improve our English skill, my English skill is so poor, so I am unsatisfied at all.

It's a rare chance for me to meet with people who want to learn my national language, Bahasa Indonesia. The language is less popular than English or Spanish. So, I won't expect to see many people want to learn it. But, I accidentally found people from various countries who are learning my national language.
They are learning to improve their writing in Bahasa. And we, Indonesians change our roles there. We become the native speakers that could correct their writing in exchange for…Continue

Students all stood up, looking curiously at the new teacher stepping into the class.
“Sweet, this one is a woman!” said one of the students to the boy next to him. It was more than two weeks since their previous English teacher had left. The first thing that waved in the minds of the boys was evaluating the new teacher; the new…Continue
