Find the correct words for these pictures!

Hi everyone! ^_^

Checking photo collections in my netbook made me think of the words for the pictures. However, I found it not too easy to find the correct words. What about you? I've checked the answers. The answer of each picture is one English word except number 5. Let me know your idea or guessing. :))

* Participants have already found the answers and I wrote them at the bottom of each picture. Hence, you…

Buying Clothing

My friends, I see that one of the sentences on my last test turned out to be a true toughie! What a great sentence! It has already made me write my “nightmare blog” and makes me write one more blog as we all buy some clothes/footwear from time to time and should know the appropriate vocabulary. Some EC members may think I went nuts, such things are well-known! Yes, they are, but if you read what I did, you will agree it is time to tell learners what words and expressions to use speaking…

The key is to be readable

Yes, 'to be readable' means 'to be enjoyable and easy to read'. 

I can tell that you do have a great idea or topic or something fun to share with us. You even managed to write a blog about it, but only to find that other members don't seem to be so interested in it. You're so frustrating and wonder what's wrong with your blog. 

If that's true for you, you're not alone in feeling that. It's not easy for a learner to write something readable, even though they may have a wide…

Good day englishclub folks, 

I heard somewhere, or saw somewhere, about one english practice exercise. 

"Compose sentence or text using words, which exlude one letter "(any letter from alphabet).

For example, letter "S" - "I am very happy today. I woke up and realized that I have won 1 million dollar lottery", but of course, such letters like "S, X, Q, Z..." are very easy, so you can take any harder one.

Letter "E" -…

Try to memorize it this time

Yes, I mean 'try to memorize the word that you failed to memorize when you first saw it'. 

Some words are hard to memorize, even though you've tried to memorize them with all the means which you think are so effective. 

I agree that 'imagination' is the trick, but sometimes it doesn't work, too. For example, I can memorize the words 'adoption' and 'adaption' with imagination, but it seems there's no way for me to memorize the word 'leper' or 'seism' by using the imagination.…
