Hi Kamelia,
I saved the information in my cell phone, never payed attention to the memo file in the cell phone , Unlike many people I don't play with my cell phone, I never send a Bluetooth so far ,not install the software of Telephone bank. I don't like to meet people who are playing with the cell phone, or put the headset into the ears.
listen to music 4 hours per day, So many channels, so little worth watching, sitting in front of the mirror non stop. How much is the life span, the walk of life have been changed. The corruption increased because money is not divided correctly, people who live high life and dog life both been corrupted; the poetry of survival is not made up of consolations. This is the present belles-lettres. Where are the aesthetic qualities? The values are faked , everyone should keep up with the joneses if he wants to survive

Harry up my friend, I am afraid of being dead ,because every person leaves a mark, good or bad, in the society he lives. We do not remember people by their names but by the imprints they leave on our memories. A politician is known for his political works, a reformer is known for the changes he brought for the betterment of the society, a sportsperson is known for his talent, medals and trophies, etc.

Hitler was known for the wars and the destruction he caused. We remember Mahatma Gandhi as a man of non-violence.
But when I die nobody remember me.

Oh Hi Helkady,

How are you?

Welcome to this thread, I am very happy that there is another Arab person here! By the way, I am Amal from Damascus, Syria. Oh you can't believe how much I love Egyptian people and love their accent, they are really very kind and helpful people..

I have some friends from Egypt and now I hope you will be among them. :)

My friend, you asked for an advice, although I am a learner just like you but I can tell you what helped me a lot and made me improve my English:

First of all, I started to lesson to some simple audio lessons called " Effortless English Lessons", the teacher is really great and his way of teaching is new, simple and funny.

I downloaded all the lessons to my cell phone and started to hear them whenever I had free time..
-You can look for the lessons on Google-

After that, I started to feel more confidence so I tried to make some friendships with foreign people and chatted with them in English. In fact, that helped me alot with improving my spelling. Above that, I can't forget that I'd made some great friendships..

Moreover, I can't deny that this thread is the main factor which make me stay in touch with the English language because I feel here that this is my home and no matter how far my distance was, I have to return to it. My heart is with my friends here, We are like a family!

So if you were busy and don't have time to chat or to listen to English, writing here is the best way cause you are always welcomed, whenever you want and you can speak about whatever you want..

Oh, I love movies too and of course most of the time I read the subtitle but you know, in the last period I changed, something forced me to just listen cause I was watching a looooooong series then suddenly it had displayed on the TV but I really wanted to know its end so I just went to the net and saw episodes but guess what :!!: They were without translation!! :!!: Oh my god! :~: In the beginning it was a little bit hard for me to follow them but after some time, I used to it and started to get what they were talking about. Of course, there were some hard words for me but it was good and I amazed that I could understand them! Wow! {-:

So forget all learning method and just do like me and watch a long series {-; that will help you the most. Hehe :lol: -just kidding-

Emm, I know that my post isn't that helpful for you but it was just to say welcome and let you enjoy your time, dear, don't be depressed, I am sure you will be good in English, you just need to enjoy learning it and have some patience!

Hope to read more from you.

Best wishes,
Amal

WELCOME!

Hi Helkady,

Hello and a very warm and friendly welcome to this thread. Thank you very much for joining us. I am Behnam(male) from Iran, married and have got two babies. They are twins and boys. You can find some other information about my on the first page of this thread.

In replying to your request; asking for some advice on improving English skills such as listening, speaking, reading and writing, my dear and kind friend Amal has written her own successful experience which is very useful. I am also writing my own experience. I am not advising you, sine your English is excellent and you don't need any advice actually. What you need is an effective method.

First of all, you should be determined to make progress in English skills. Determination, motivation, love, etc. whatever you call it, is the first step. As your post implies, you have got sufficient motivation. In this step, what you must do is keeping yourself always motivated. This is essentially important for learners to keep themselves determined and motivated all the time. Not only in learning a new language, but also in all aspects of life, when a goal is set, a plan is needed to achieve the goal, and it is necessary to keep the plan!

The second point is knowing the process of learning. When it comes to learning a language, our brain works like an electrical circuit. In a circuit, there are input, processing, and output. In languages learning, listening is input, speaking is output! If you want to speak well, you should(must) listen well. If you want to write well, you should(must) read well. In other words, Attentive listening and careful reading lead to fluent speaking and effective writing respectively.

The third point is being precise and caring about accuracy all the time. In some terms, learning a language is similar to building a house. From the basic foundation stone, it is vitally important to be careful with the principals. For instance, using right materials with enough strength and quality, in particular, putting the bricks on each other rightly. Otherwise the building will be like the Tower of Pisa in Italy! When using a word, we must know the proper prepositions, adjectives, verbs, etc. which go with that word, the common collocations(the words which often are used together such as 'make a mistake', 'do homework', 'do exercise', 'up and down', 'Commit a crime' etc.). We must also know the correct structures. Therefore, the grammar is vitally important in writing skill. For this purpose, I strongly suggest using an English-To-English dictionary. Never use English-To-Arabic dictionary! I do recommend 'Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English' to you and to all learners. In addition to that, you should study 'Grammar in use', and 'Collocations in use'. Both are useful. I've got their PDF files. I can send them and some other useful ebooks to you if you give me your email address.

The fifth point is exposing yourself to the English language. This means being involved in it all the time; living with it; taking every opportunity to develop English skills. Chatting in English can be very useful.

The sixth point is simplicity. Be as simple as possible! When you write a sentence, read it again and ask yourself whether there is another word or easier structure to make it look a little simple. I personally do believe in plain English.

Those rules may look difficult for you, but don't worry, little by little they will become habits.

If you need further explanation just let me know. I hope this helps!

All the best,
Behnam, 6 March, 2013

Hi Helkady,

Thanks for replying. Your English is excellent, and you communicate well, but there are still rooms for improvement. Take a careful attention to the grammar. In writing, grammar is extremely important. As I've mentioned in my previous post to you, when writing a sentence, read it over and over again to see if you can write it simpler, and also check the structure by using a dictionary. You will find this boring, but little by little you will get used to it.

For example, 'advice' is an uncountable noun. So, it is not correct to say, 'give me a advice' or 'thank you for your useful advices'! If you look 'advice' in a dictionary you will see many interesting points about it. For example, 'Let me give you a piece of advice. Wear a blue suit to the interview.'. What a nice sentence! This sentence not only helps us with the grammar, but also introduces us a scientific or physiological point which is effective and impressive in interviews. By using an English-To-English dictionary, you will kill many birds with one stone!

Don't worry about the speed of writing. In this step, just try to care about accuracy. After some days, you will write at a normal speed. Don't forget 'practice makes perfect'!

Would you mind writing about yourself(like your job, your family, your country, likes and dislikes, ..)? I am waiting to hear more from you.

All the best,
Behnam, 7 March, 2013

P.S. Less than 20 hours is left to my important exam. :lol:
