Language externalizes our thoughts, therefore I've decided to testify not only my thoughts but also many other things about me. Things I have been up to or things I enjoy. This blog is like a patchwork quilt which is made by stitching many different pieces of fabric in order to make one whole beautiful bed cover.With this in mind, I want to write anything I feel like in here so as to make a whole beautiful blog.
Let's start feeding it!
Hi anyone who might read this! It is late and I can't come up with a good idea for a post now, so let's explore the blog itself. If you teach, study or enjoy the English language, you might want to take a look at the videos you can see in this blog. They are really interesting to apply in an English class or in your self-studies. The ones starting with "Real English" present topics related to day-by-day language and are basically interviews with native English speakers. The others with the camera focused on a guy's face are all about pronunciation. The guy's name is Dave Sconda. His explanations are fascinating and he is hillarious. Have fun!=D
Let's take a second here to talk about one thing that many people might not know: How do you say more than one sister-in-law or brother-in-law?
Well, you make "in-law compounds" plural by making the noun part plural since the women are primarily sisters, and the "-in-law" part just further describes what kind of sisters they are: Sisters-in-law Brothers-in-law Fathers-in-law Mothers-in-law
Today is Ash Wednesday one day after "Mardi Gras" (pronounced /ˈmɑrdi grɑː/) French for "Fat Tuesday" or "Shrove Tuesday",which refers to the practice of the last night of eating richer before the penitential season of Lent before easter. It lasts forty days(excluding Sundays) because of the forty days Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness (Matthew 4:1-11) That is why some people decide to give something up during the Lent such as chocolate, meat, beer or something they really like or are kind of addicted to. Going back to Ash Wednesday, the name derives from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of believers as a sign of repentance.The priest or minister when making the cross of ashes on someones forehead says the following: Remember, O man, that you are dust, and unto dust you shall return.—Genesis 3:19The purpose of this is to remind us of our mortality.
