Dear Behnam,

That is my pleasure to hear that you are getting better. I hope that the ointment quieted the pain and medicine and exercise brought relief from the pain of your heart.

These days I have a heartache for the oppressed people of Syria ,now I am listening to David Cameron from BBC,the prime minster of UK . I think that every body in the world hate him, as he is similar to Satan. He is trying to convince the UK parliament for attacking to Syria. ( of course I get 50% of his speech ).
When the USA , UK and France and their allied couldn't capture the Syria by supporting their people (Terrorists ), They are playing a game to attack directly to Syria. The only problem they have is that Israel is in access of Syrian and Hezbollah missiles.

The policy of USA and UK are as well known as the village pump ( Like a white forehead cow) ,all people know about their policy , and it seems this policy is in the end of his life, because they may be caught in swamp of Syria.
But what I can say to the countries which are Syria's neighbor and help the USA and UK. Aren't they know that after Syria it is their turn. I remember the story of stupid Turtle and scorpion.

A Scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a Turtle to carry Him on his back across a river.
"Are you crazy?" exclaimed the Turtle.
"You'll sting me while I'm swimming and I'll drown."
"My dear Turtle," laughed the Scorpion, "if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?"
"You're right!" cried the Turtle. "Hop on!"
The Scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the Turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the Turtle resignedly said:
"Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there'd be no logic in your stinging me. Then why did you do it?"
"It has nothing to do with logic," the drowning Scorpion sadly replied. "It's just my character."

See you in complete health

Hi Morrow,

How are you? How is everything going with you? I hope you are well with your family.

Thanks for your wishes and prayer. I keep praying for your country too.

In fact we are a strong country and I don't think that USA will attack us, they are just threatening!
Even if they attacked, believe me, nobody here cares, since we are still living our life as normal...

For me, I prefer to die by an attack from USA or Israel instead of dying by the groups and the army here.. At least in this way, I will be "شهيد"...

Anyway, I hope nothing bad happen to my country and yours.
Wish you the best.

Hi friends

Postby behnam » Sun Sep 01, 2013 2:16 pm

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are all doing well. I am quite well, not fully recovered, but feel getting better little by little. Today, I could get up without any help. My wife used to help me with standing up or getting up from the bed. I also could sleep on the right side without feeling any pain on my chest. I had to sleep only on my back! Oh my God! How hard it is to have only one sleeping position; on your back! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am a strong person. You know what I mean by saying that. But, heart operation is really difficult for patients. What should I complain about? Should I complain about pain? All my body is painful, although I am taking painkillers regularly. Should I complain about the wounds? They have cut my body from the toe to the upper part of my chest, except for the belly. Should I complain about boredom and tiredness? Staying at home 24-7 has made me mad! To tell you the truth, I am watching some TV programs. You can guess how I feel, since I used to hate TV. Should I complain about the worries which I have; liquid buildup around the lungs and the heart, blood clots in the leg etc? When you have such a big operation, widely affects your body, you are sensitive to every sign, noise, sound, etc. in your body. This makes you worried all the time! I have many things to complain about, but this is not a complaining letter! By the way, who should I complain to? :lol: :lol: :lol:

On Tuesday, the day after tomorrow, two events will happen and I am impatiently waiting for them. 1) The final result of PhD exam will be announced by the authorities. 2) I am visiting the doctor. I have an appointment. The first one can make me extremely happy, because I really love studying PhD. The second one can make me assured. I want you to pray for me. Please!

Dear Mohsen, thank you for your great posts. Funny things are happening in the world. Politicians are making silly decisions. They speak stupidly. Politicians are always making speeches. They don't have time to take the benefit of listening, to focus on themselves, to monitor themselves. That's why, in many cases, they are less intelligent than ordinary people!

Dear Kami, you are a great teacher now! I am happy about it. Imagining you in a classroom, teaching English, makes me feel good! About your question, I personally believe English learners have no need to memorize 504, because the majority of them are not used in everyday conversations. I have studied 504, but it has been useless for me. I think so! However, it is better to use a new word in different structures and learn sentences rather than the word itself. Learners must know different functions of a word in different situations and the prepositions or other words it collocates with! By the way, learners should use new words. The more they use a new word, the deeper it goes in the mind, the later it gets forgotten!

Dear Moroo, I am always waiting for your new posts.

Dear Amal, I totally agree with you. A dead lion in the battle is more impressive than an alive one in the cage in a zoo! Staying at home and repeating the same actions from the kitchen to the toilet is not honourable! Pardon my French! It is our duty; the main purpose of the creation, to recognize the rightness from wrongness and to support rightness! Fighting in the battle between rightness and wrongness; supporting rightness, is valuable. I am always praying for you and for the victory of rightness.

I hope to hear from you soon.

All the best,

Hi Behnam

Postby Kamelia » Tue Sep 03, 2013 10:02 am

How is the dear golden-heart ostad? Does he know that Kami missed him a great great deal?

Oh Behnam, regardin the 504, tell you what! I told the manager a gazillion times that this method doesn't work sir, for God's sake stop believing in ancient methods and get a new outlook!!! But he doesn't! He thinks memorizing is the best way and that by studying the 504 students will do better on the entrance exam!
So I just gave up, then I was looking for a new way to help them reduce this tedium of learning by memorizing! I though of a better homework, in which they had to look up the dictionary for the words and write a paragraph of the words given in the lesson. This way, they would benefit from both having the words by heart and understanding how to apply them in context! :-D

You know what? I always try to spice things up, find new ways, music, movies, cartoons, joke clips and anything that at least seemingly doesn't denote "being in a class in the old-fashioned way"! You know what? Because I myself will be bored too! LOL

Hope to read from you so soon,

wholeheartedly wishing you a wonderful healthy body,

Dear Behnam,
Nice to read that you are better and in good health now , during last week I had a travel to Shrize , We went to shiraz with two cars ,rent two rooms for four days ,very cheap 60 thousands toman each night . Each room consisted of 4 bed ,a kitchen and bathroom. We had no time to cook at room . We went out side to visit Shiraz from morning and came back in the evening.

Shiraz has many beautiful places for visiting , many gardens and ancient buildings , I enjoy the most when I visited the Pasargad and Takhte-jamshid . I have already visited this places several times , but each time I visit there my body get a new power . It is unbelievable that Iranian make such a significant buildings 500 years before the brith of Christ (BC) , the palaces with 20 meters tall columns ,the palaces in size of a football stadiums. There are huge stone with 7 tones weight in the walls and gates and statues of animals in large sizes which are mounted on the entrance gates.
The Takhte-Jamshid , is called Perspolis in Latin, When Alexander attacked Iran ,he captured the Perspolis, he lived in this beautiful palace for two months and then ordered to burned the palace , he couldn't bear to see a superior civilization ,so he destroyed all of buildings and also the city of Parseh which was beside the Palace.
Never the magnificence of this places could be described within the words and sentences , it should be visited by your own eyes althought it remains only a ruins of palaces.

All the best,
Mohsen

Dear Kamile I m teaching English too in a college but this is my first experience in a school until now I just have tutored to small groups of students .Honey ,wish you best I m very sad about you because I know that it s difficult to apply new trends in teaching English while your school manager is ordering you to apply the old-fashioned techniques .This is the first time I have heard about 504 what s that dear? it sounds strange {-: is it a name of a teaching tecnique,approach or method?
I really want to improve myself about how to teach English effectively. I have huge methodological knowledges but you know it s diffucult to adopt these during the teaching time wish me best dear :~:

Hi friends,

How are you? I hope you are spending a great summer.

My grandma is in the hospital, she can't walk, stand or even move her feet. She feels pain whenever she move. So the doctor checked her and decided to make a surgery... I hope she will be OK, inshallah.

Dears, I maybe wont be online for some days so please don't worry, I am very well and safe.

Please pray for my grandma.
Wish you the best

Hi Friends!

Postby behnam » Mon Sep 09, 2013 6:44 am

Hi my great friends,

Life without you is like being in vacuum. How are you? I hope you are doing well. I am also well. On Thursday the doctor is checking my heart by some devices like Echo and sport-scanning the curves of heart. If it works well, he will prescribe me Physiotherapy for10 sessions. About the final result of PhD exam, unfortunately, I am not accepted! I failed, although I answered to all verbal and oral questions correctly, and I did very well in the interview! I cannot justify myself! I don't know how to face with this unfairness! I am really disappointed. After knowing the failure, I was depressed for three days. I couldn't sleep and didn't eat anything! My heart beat so quickly and I sweated heavily! It was my absolute right to study PhD, but they denied my right! They are absolutely unfair and unreasonable!

Dear Shahrbanu and Kamelia, two great English teachers, I wish you success! Don't forget to look on the funny side of teaching too. Nowadays, students get bored quickly. In the past, students were hardworking, but these days many of them are fooling around. These lazy students cause teachers some troubles. It should be kept in mind that a classroom with some students has many layers. What the students do in the class is only the first layer of their actions. The students belong to different cultures and backgrounds since they are from different families. You should know there are some spies, some gossips, etc. among them. I wish you success in managing and monitoring the class as well as possible!

Dear Mohsen, I love Shiraz very much. I've been to Shiraz four times, but these have been business(job-related) trips. I hadn't time to visit those historical places. The coming spring holidays, I intend to travell to Shiraz with my family. I hope so!

Dear Amal, thank you for putting posts here and informing us about yourself. I hope your grandmother will be well soon. I will pray for her health. If the grandfather was alive, she would get well much sooner! You know, men are great healers in some situations! :lol: :lol: :lol: May God bless the grandfather and help the grandmother recover as soon as possible.

All the best,

They can't do that, who allows them not to accept such a great Physician study Phd ? They themselves should BEG him to study and teach in their universities, they should BEG him, BEG him! they easily let many unqualified persons study Phd just by getting money from them, how can they fail Behnam???????????

It's the worst news i could ever hear in my life! I'm toooooooooo angryyyyyyy, I'm just exploding from anger! OH MY GOG..............

Please dear Behnam, don't sit there, go to sanjesh and ask for your right! The only thing I can think of is that there's sth wrong, maybe there's been a mistake in announcing results.... please ask them check it again, it's unbelievable ..............
