Changes

Hello,

Just a nice quote that I came across in a PowerPoint slideshow on Quality Assurance.

The only one who likes change is a wet baby.


Loved it.

Re: hi

Hello, Fatimah Nice to hear from you. I have seen Wales only on TV and course books. It looks really beautiful. Why did it happen that you and your husband moved to Wales? Did you go there for work? Or did you immigrate there? Anyway, it is really nice that you are enjoying living there. Best wishes...

Urban Legend

Hello, I am glad you liked it. Here is a hard-luck story for you that was sent to me to one of my friends. I did a little search, and it seems to be pretty well-known. However, they say it is just another urban legend. Enjoy! Megan Fry, 44 years old, is killed by 14 state troopers after she wandered...

Re: greetings from Malaysia

Hello, Sabrina Nice to hear from you. The situation with being overloaded with work sounds very familiar. So, there is no need to apologize. After all, it did take me some time to reply to your posting. And sorry for accidentally associating Malaysia with Singapore. I’ll put it in my pipe and smoke ...

Hello,

My version is:
I have forgotten about each single birthday.

In another way:
I never remember anyone's birthday.

I hope this helps.

Re: wonderful forum

Hello, Nellie I totally agree with Sergei. I have seen really great teachers of foreign languages. Some of them are native-speakers and some of them are not. My personal opinion is that there are some pros and cons in any case. But generally it depends on the teacher. About your second questions. I’...

Re: funny jokes

Hello,

I am glad you liked them.

Here is one more more you.

A motorist ran over an old's lady cat and killed it.
- I am very sorry, said the motorist. I'll replace your cat, of course.
- Very well, said the lady. But I hope you're good at catching mice.

:)

job interview

Hello, It’s difficult to pinpoint just one answer. I believe that you should be well-prepared about your REAL strong points. After all, even if you get hired, but your future employer is not satisfied with your performance, you will still get sacked sooner or later. Brainstorm all points that come i...

RE: GREETINGS FROM MALAYSIA!

Hello, Sabrina! Nice to hear from you. I hope that your studies are fine. What have you been learning lately? Are you enjoying the course? Unfortunately I have never been to Malaysia. I think it is somewhere near Singapore. And I know that it is a very sunny and interesting place. Where exactly do y...

"Find" VS. "Found" - more info is needed

Hello, Reefer Can you give the whole sentence please? And I'll do my best to try to help you. Here is how I see it so far. The first one looks like an imperative (Walk two blocks and turn right). It may be used when you give instructions. For example - On the File menu, click Open. The second one lo...

Re: to vs. for

Hello, This is a tough question. Did you mean the difference between “to” and “for” when giving the reason of doing something? Than the rule is pretty simple. We use “for” before nouns. I went upstairs for some rest. We use “for” + gerund to explain a general purpose of an object. Scissors are used ...

Re: already

Hello, Actually it is fine to use “already” with almost any English tense. You can easily check it in Longman http://www.ldoceonline.com/ . already 1 before now, or before a particular time: The design of the new house is similar to those that have already been built. The performance had already sta...

Re: worry

Hello, We cannot see what exactly is implied from just one sentence. Still, in many cases it is possible to understand it from the context. Because after a preposition you have to use an ing form of the verb, there are no means to show various meanings, like in: He seems to work hard. He seems to be...
