Voice Recording

I am posting a voice recording. It is the voice of one of my Communication Skill students, who is from the hilly regions of Kalimpong (West Bengal, India)..

Frequently, we ask our students to record speeches / passages / paragraphs, help them improve their fluency, pronunciation, accent, etc. by providing a line-by-line analysis, and then we ask them to rerecord the same.

This is the third attempt of this student, just after completing two-and-a-half months at the…

Interpret Me

Hello all,

  I would like you to describe this photo taken by me. Guess the season, the part of the day, the type of trees, the weather, the name of the place (It was neither a jungle nor a forest).

Practice, practice, practice.

I still have a plan to grow up a hockey player.

Because I like watching hockey, and I want to have a strong reason to do it!

I ask for a forgiveness

Hi Lewwwpers :)

I hope you are great because every day I see more and more content on the site. 

I'm very happy. 

But, I also feel terrible because I do not answer, I do not leave my thoughts inside your discussions.

My life is complicated for a while.

I work in three schools to make money for my basic needs. I don't have a full time job, I have only a part-time jobs. It's not fun, but what can I do? I do not complain, I even like it. A new…

'CRINGGGG...'



Ground Floor. The elevator door opened as she waited outside. Though she reluctantly got inside, she didn't press the button for a while. Her mind had been muddled by tons of thoughts since the previous day.…

One Of The Best And Most Beautiful Actresses Of Iran.

I am so very sad, because we have lost one of the best Iran's actresses, whose name was Foroozan.  She was a Movie Star in Iran's Cinema before 1979.

Foroozan was her actress name, which means bright or ablaze in English.

She has played in a lot of movies before…

A few words about my way in education of children

During the week when I was the princess of LEWWWP I got a question:

How do you treat your children when they don't do what you want them to do? Are you a strict father or a tolerant one?

(http://englishworldwide.ning.com/xn/detail/6467531:Comment:329317)

I was not able to answer in two words, but I want to try now.

In short: I categorize any…

[A proposal for weekly text chat] Start point and derivative

I've read a blogpost long time ago, about improving and developing your brain.

In nutshell : it's not important where you are now, and how far is  your destination, the only important thing is - are you having a constant movement/improving to your goal.

It's pretty obvious, and it's hard to argue with this.

But my math background tells me : just a constant…

Alternative schooling: the interesting case of Sudbury School

Can you imagine a school where children are not taught at all, where rules are decided by both children and teachers (one person=one vote) and where there is no curriculum and no schedule? Children just learn what they want if they want. 

This is what is now being experienced at Sudbury school (Massachusetts) since the 70's.

I'm sorry for I will now opt for a lazy, laid-back, easy solution by just copy-and-paste the description everyone can find on Wikipedia. I hope you all…

Snowy Virginia!

As many of you know, several states in the eastern US were hit with a crippling snowstorm this past Friday, Saturday and into Sunday.

For the area where I live, it ranked third for the storm delivering the most snow (for as long as records have been kept).

At our house, I measured 22 inches accumulation.…

My Student

One of my best students was Priyanka.

She completed her college and went on to get a degree in management. All through her academic life she scored top grades. And she recently got a good job in a reputed concern.

Birdwatching!

One of the nice things about being snowbound (and with an unstable internet) is that one has more time to watch the birds!

During our recent storm [Winter storm/blizzard Jonas], approximately 22 inches of snow fell, sometimes at a rate of nearly 3 inches per hour!

Whenever I…
