"Hi, dear Bet! 10 is correct now. I would make the same corrections. 9. Oh, no! You are not right! A car can't run itself but your verb is ARRIVE! TO ARRIVE is the same as TO COME. Also, the past perfect tense is incorrect in both clauses."

"Hi, dear Bet! I have got some free time to reply. 1. As I said "we were eating" is OK. "having eaten" makes sense, too but you should realize what both mean. a) we were eating and saw the clouds thickening. b) we had alredy eaten…"

We exist on the Earth to make it better place to live

My Self-introduction

Dear friends! I have just joined the EC as my wife has been its member for many years and always talks about you. We do have a lot in common, but why not to have more? I am a native speaker and hope to be useful. But no grammar questions, please! Tanya says I am illiteral and I always ask her to correct my articles before having them published.

A few words about myself. I have been born and raised in Boston. My mother and my grandfather were university teachers at Harvard and I grew up with the idea that education, knowledge, common sense and human reason are the most valuable in this world. However, living through my life I realized there is much more to it! But being a university teacher I should tell you: knowledge is our main power. It is not weapons that makes us stronger, it is only our desire to make this word better than it is.

I'd like to show you the place where we live. It is really wonderful. I have been living in Florida for 30 years and I swear, I have never seen such beauty although I traveled much. We live in a rather small town called Crystal River, in the mid-Florida. It is at the west coast, not far from Tampa. The fact is that the river is really very clean. Its water is transparent and one can see everything on the bottom. I am not a master of photo, so I will add the one from the net. You won't believe that ocean creachers like lamatees live here. I have no idea who permitted to build a nuclear power station here! Anyway, come to our land and be our guests or stay forever.

"Sing a Song" group. Is it Worth "Reanimating"?

Posted on May 14, 2018 at 15:30 31 Comments

Hi, everyone! After reading a few recent comments on my discussions in one of my favorite groups "Sing a song", after reading some discussions over and listening to the great music, I can't get rid of the idea to bring this group back to life. 

I am really very sorry that our friend Modaway decided to leave EC but the group he created was one of the best. Music is to unite people. It is such a powerful weapon that guns can rest in holsters. Music is not aware of national differences,…

Grammar Test VIII

Hi, everyone! Here is one more grammar test for you to master your skills. I have to admit borrowing two last sentences from the blog of one EC member. I have corrected her sentences a little for you to see grammar mistakes. I believe you know what to do! Just correct ALL the mistakes and make the sentences correct and understandable.

Here is your task.

  1. Having eaten outside, we realized we might have gotten wet as the rain had been about to start.
  2. Hardly we…

What to do with the puppies you love when you are left on your own?

Posted on May 10, 2018 at 17:00 36 Comments

Hi, my friends! It is spring again! It always makes us feel more romantic and playful. So, I think nobody minds my posting this blog.

I believe despite being a teacher, I can write some funny blogs from time to time. So, one of Mary’s blogs as well as my present family situation makes me write something funny to relieve the stress.

Most of young people always ask themselves if they want to have kids and if they are ready for that. I have never asked that question as I have…

Mary has been banned! What is the reason?

Posted on April 20, 2018 at 14:00 97 Comments

Hi, everyone! To my great regret, I have to post this blog after recieving the unbelievable information about Mary's being banned.

I sincerely want to know what is going on here! Since when are we not allowed to express our minds or to share our observations and life experience? Since when have we started to be banned because of speaking about clothing? I haven’t read Mary’s last blog but I do know its content and I know Mary well enough. She is one of the brightest, smartest, most…

Hi, everyone! I often miss teaching and teasing you a little! Here is my new grammar test for you (or me!) not to be bored! On this test, you should correct not only grammar mistakes, but also some phrasal verbs. I have borrowed some of the expressions from my wife's students and my personal correspondence.

I believe, you know what to do! You should correct all the mistakes and make all the sentences meaningful. So, let's go ahead!

Here is your task.

To My Blog: Phrasal Verbs, Part I, Explanations and the Correct Expressions

Posted on March 27, 2018 at 12:52 19 Comments

Well, well! I see no one is interested in correcting my learner and explaining teacher's mind in my blog from March 17, Part I, although you seem to like Part II! Why? It is my undrerstanding that the first part has been much better and more exciting! It is your business for sure. If I were you, I would avoid an easy road to my goal. But any learning blog should result in your gaining at least some new knowledge. I promised to explain everything and have posted a blog about all phrasal verbs…

Let's Try to Learn Phrasal Verbs Having Fun! Part II

Hi, my friends! I know you are busy enjoying your weekend and spring, romance and love. I wish I could join you but I am already out of date for most of females! So, I believe you don't mind my enjoying spring in my own way! LOL!

I see you liked to correct “learner’s” mistakes and to guess what he means. As I have “collected” a few other funny expressions this week, I’d like to propose you a new task. But first of all, I feel like sharing some of my observations with you. I believe…

To My Previous Blog: Some Explanations.

Posted on March 23, 2018 at 13:00 25 Comments

Hi, everyone!

I think it is time to explain the phrasal verbs I used writing my previous blog or I meant expecting your corrections. First of all, I’d like to say that phrasal verbs are not idioms, at least for English speaking people. However, speaking a few other languages, I realize they sound like idioms for you as in your languages the same actions are defined by some other verbs.  Phrasal verbs are really “tricky” as you may see. If you use a wrong preposition or a wrong verb,…
