Could anyone of you explain the meaning of the adjective "passive-aggressive" for me.
I know the meaning of "passive" and "aggressive" used separately in the sentences and/or paragraphs.
Passive is like letting others do whatever they want to and you have no reaction rather than keeping silent. for example, when my family refused my perfect job at another non-governmental organization, I…Continue

Number the Stars (my review)
“Number the Stars” by Lois Lowry has undoubtedly had a profound impact on me. This novel was awarded The Newbery Medal in 1990 as the book with the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. Moreover, having been translated into several languages, this book has also been appreciated by millions of people around the world.
Learning the teaching course on coursera, I searched for new ways to improve my listening. I think these tips can be useful:
1. Keep a journal of your listening experiences. Write the name of the listening source, the date, the time you spent listening, a short summary of what you heard, and your feelings, questions, or responses to what you heard. This will help you see if you are practicing enough to make progress.
2. Practice making…
It's good to listen to some emotional/sentimental songs. especially those ones that make you forget your difficult moments you are going through.
Some of the songs bring back the old good memories in the past, and, they don't let you stop shedding tears of sadness, however, It's not way good to be addict to listening to the songs always, because the more you listen to them, The more you'll like downloading the new versions of the songs and make a playlist out of them later.

The word"Hashtag" is being used by the characters in the british/american movies. I know that the meaning of this word can be a "#" or "Hash" On the laptop's keyboard used for tagging someone on Facebook or on any other social media accounts.
This Hash is also available on the mobiles used for executing a code like *123# at the end.
But what I am in the dark about is, I saw a boy in a movie slammed the door of his car and said "Hashtag"!!

I have just spent a week on the Island of Guernsey. Guernsey has always been British though it is close to France, about 69 kilometers (26 miles) off the coast of Normandy. With Jersey, Guernsey is one of the main Channel Islands but, though British, it is not a member of the UE. There are lots of things I could tell you from my stay there but I would start with some news I read in "The Guernsey Press and Star."
