Iranian friends, long time no see!

The other day, I was recommended through the app on my cell phone a video seemingly made by an Iranian cameraman telling a story of a local family in your dear country.

The wife is hated by her husband, who is a policeman and tries to divorce the woman, and who resorts to domestic violence when declined. But still the wife stays unyielded to this brutal man in her life. Then the man changes his tactics by having a priest of a local mosque to seduce his wife, with a helper involved who looks like a decent and honest guy but turns out to be a coward. When later the wife is caught in the affair, the coward and the priest, under the coercion of the bad husband, say a lot of words at the law court to the disadvantage of the fooled lady.
At that time, only the aunt of this lady offers help, but as a woman, she cannot do much in this man-dominating country. Her own father and sons are very furiated knowing that his daughter or their mother is doing adultery to the man he calls son-in-law and they call father.

The best part or the most shocking part of the film then hit my eyes: This poor wife is taken by force to the village square over the alledged love affairs with other men than her husband, and put into a hole dug for her. All the men and women of the whole rural village where she lives gather before her, who is then buried with soil up to her waist and cannot move. Then the shower of stone begins...The first thrower is her father,with a small piece of small stone, but he misses, then her sons, cannot hit the target after a few attempts, then her husband, with a bigger stone this time, and bingo, the woman bleeds when her head is hit hard...

My dear friends, I cannot go on... it is too shocking...Can you give some explanation about this primitive culture?

Hi , I am here , better than ever

Do not judge a culture by watching a movie. Quite the opposite. Iran is a women dominating country. Iranian respect Women more that whatever you think , you can come to Iran and get the reality of Iran culture .

There are a number of traitors who are making films against Iran with the support of the Zionists. Over the past few years, the Americans and the Zionists have suffered the biggest blows from Iran.

In Israel's 11-days war against Palestine, Palestinians were under the most brutal Israeli attacks but the defenseless Palestinians were able to resist for eleven days by using the missiles which were design by Iran for them, and Netanyahu was forced to seek help from the United States, and the United States mediated with Egypt until a ceasefire was declared.


What do you expect from them? They have been pressing Iran for years. Cultural aggression is a political tool of them and they try to portray Iran as a country with a black culture in the eyes of the world.

Iran is a civilized country with a history of thousands of years. What do you expect from this cowboy now? They have colonial roots.
One day Napoleon kills three million Europeans. One day, Hitler killed eight million Europeans,let me don't speak about England ( the Admin is from England :lol: ).

It was the turn of the United States and Israel to build ISIS. They gave them weapons and ammunition, money .....everything They support them with warplanes, drone , heliboard and sent ISIS to Syria and Iraq , a road which Ended to Iran to destroy Iran. With the victory of the Quds Force of Iran under the command of General Soleimani and the deployment of Iranian forces to Syria and Iraq, all US and Israeli plans failed. When ISIS was annihilated,they brutally killed General Soleimani at the Iraqi airport.


My dear .. before you judge a movie. Try to understand the reality of the world

OK, I know it is just a movie, but as we all know there is no smoke without fire and if there was no such thing in real life in the country, people could not have written such a story in a movie.

And you suggested us to know more about this world, yes, I agree with you, but how can we do that without being influenced by others? Most of the time we could only get second- or third-hand information.

For example, www.presstv.com is one of the media in Iran, if what I know is correct. It left an impression on me that this TV station does not have any woman anchor, so it says something, if not a lot, about the woman status in that country.

In other countries around the world, women work very actively in news media and air transport service, like in China, my homeland.They not only make the world look better, but help soften the tension in the society. You know that recently there is a hot video clip in fire in China which tells a police woman of a small city warned or rectified the violators of traffic rules with her soft voice. Many audience said they want to have this lady to be their wife.

Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka are male-dominated countries, but it is weird that they all had women as their top leaders once or now. China claims itself to be a country where "women can hold up half of the sky", but till now, not a single woman has ever been appointed or elected to be the No.1 boss of the country, or even come close to that position. So I feel ashamed too, when I am trying to embarrass you.

Life is like that. People will cause you pain, hurt you, put you down, make you feel bad about yourself, as if you’re the bad one! It’s how you react that will determine the outcome. They are powerless until you choose to empower them. Don’t give them the ammunition they need!

Time is one of the greatest blessings from the Almighty God. Respect it and spend it wisely because once gone, you won’t get it back. Some don’t respect your time, because they are trying to satisfy their own priorities so when people don’t respect your time, stop giving it to them!

One of the salient features of Abu Rihan was his curiosity and interest in personal experience.
During Abu Rihan's adolescence, it was common for people to believe that diamond is a poisonous stone, and whoever held it would die immediately. Therefore, the people of that era avoided diamonds and did not touch them.
One day Abu Rihan found a diamond. When his mother saw the diamond, she began to cry, forcing him to throw it away, but Abu Rihan hid the diamond. After a few years, this great scientist crushed the diamond and rubbed it on a piece of meat and fed it to an animal in public.
Everyone thought that the animal would die, but some time passed and the animal was healthy. Thus, Abu Rihan put an end to a baseless rumor with his experiment.

Phrasal Verb

Post by Mohsen »

🗨️make up

📌Meaning:

If you make up with someone, you become friends again after having an argument or a disagreement with them.

📝For example:


◾Are you and your brother still angry at one another because of that fight you had, or did you make up?

◾We argue all right, but we always make up before long.

Sometimes something happens and you keep questioning yourself and everyone around you. Like you can’t believe this is really happening. Like you haven’t seen anything of this coming. Most of times we see the bad side of the story, we see the worst thing about the event.

But at the end there is something good behind every bad story. There is something beautiful after each ugliness.

There’s something amazing about this life.

The very same worldly attribute that causes us pain is also what gives us relief: Nothing here lasts. What does that mean? It means that the breathtakingly beautiful rose in my vase will wither tomorrow. It means that my youth will neglect me. But it also means that the sadness I feel today will change tomorrow. My pain will die. My laughter won’t last forever but neither will my tears. We say this life isn’t perfect. And it isn’t. It isn’t perfectly good. But, it also isn’t perfectly bad, either.

Hi dear Friends

Is always worth asking what we need or should we just go with the flow?

Our wishes and desires never remain the same. Today we want one thing and tomorrow another. Today the people, the relationships and the lifestyle that matters you, tomorrow you might not want at all.

The universe has something in store for each one of us. It gives us what is best for us but most of us interrupt this process of life. We always want things to happen our way and want every desire to be fulfilled. Our vision for life is only short sighted. We cannot see what will follow. When we force and compel that our wishes be granted, we don’t realise that what if that gain might lead to a loss at a later stage. Sometimes when things are not working your way, you have to trust the process of life.

Don’t try to control everything in your life. There is a reason for everything to happen. When you trust the process, whatever happens, is best for you.

Positive Thinking Positive Life 💖

On this first day of the New Year, it is our greatest wish for everyone, a year of health, prosperity, love, light and happiness. Today is the perfect day to take a moment to think all that we are blessed with. To reflect on all that we do have, and not on what we don’t. From there, you can truly focus on what you wish to create through your Intentions. It is the best gift we can give to ourselves, to all we know and love, and to the world. Remember, to truly have a Happy New Year, we must create it! Then, when you do, share it with the world!

Hello again!

Post by behnam »

Hi there!
This is Behnam. How are you my dear friends? I hope you are doing great.
I am so sorry for leaving you alone for a quite long time. For some reasons, I had to stop such activities; writing on the Internet and similar things.
I am so happy that my special and dear friend Mohsen the great is still here. I would like to thank him for his great attempts to keep this forum active. Thank you very much indeed.
I hope my friends are still coming to this place and reading our posts.
As you may know, I am practicing French. Unfortunately
I made no progress in it, and I lost my English too. Instead of killing two birds with one stone, I lost all my stones without killing any birds. French is a difficult language. Do not blame me s'il vous plait!
I promise to be active here. Please join us and let's learn together again!

All the best,
Behnam, 8 January 2022

Mohsen, you are very good at setting account information. I have got a question, and need your help: how can I change my username? I tried, but I could not change it. I know how to change other things like signature, profile etc.but for resetting username, I could do nothing! As you know, my username is "behnam", I prefer to write it as "Behnam" or something else, such as "Professor Behnam"! {-;

I am waiting for your help. Take a photo of the place where I must go and change my username. Apply "Visual teaching method" please! :lol:

Prediction!

Post by behnam »

Hi friends,

I have been writing and posting about different topics since 2012 on this powerful and useful site; Englishclub.com! Many people have participated in completing this thread and making it a good place to be in. I thank them for their participation.

We have written about different things. In one of the posts,
I have mentioned that loneliness or feeling lonely is one of the biggest problems of humanity in 21st. century. At that time, it was a prediction, but nowadays it has become a serious problem for us! These days, in public places as well as at houses people and family members are busy with their cellphones. They are actually alone. They rarely speak with each other. This is a fact, regardless of its bitterness!

The second thing that I personally had predicted was marriage with animals. A few years ago, speaking about human beings sexual relationships with animals was a matter of being much too much pessimistic. However, these days it is a matter of prestige! In some nations animal marriage is still hidden, but it is not possible to deny that.

Shame on human beings! Where are we going? Is there a limitation or a final point for mankind's stupidity? I don't think so!

All the best,

Hi Behnam,

Long time ,no see
Welcome back to your house, so happy to see you again .
A wrong thought came to my mind that you have died by Corona covid 19 . As you hid from the page of times since 2 years ago.

Hurrieh , one of our old friend asked me about you , and I told her Behnam is not Alive {-:

Anyway , on the God providence ,you are still alive and I thank God . I hope you coped with all problems and came back to forum with good health.

About changing your user name , I can say it is not possible. the only way is to register again with a new user name , so you will have two user name.
And the advantage is that you can write a massage with one user name and answer it with other user name when there is no one in forum. :lol:

Dear Mohsen,

How are you doing? I hope you are doing well. Thank you very much for being here for a long time. Thank you once again for your long friendship. That's a great honour for me to be your friend.

Hurrieh is studying PhD? Great! Is it possible to have her account address in WhatsApp?

I agree that Isfahani people can open all locks. :lol:

About two years absence, I could not have access to such places. I cannot say more! :lol:

Twins are doing well. They are nine years old. They could be better boys, but unfortunately Crona 19 virus caused them to be far from schools and books, and close to parents instead. That's a big problem! {-:

How many children have you got? How are they doing? How old are they?

We finished the project in Tabriz recently. We are going to have another one. It is not finalized yet. I hope the authorities will choose me as the technical consultant again.

All the best,

Hi dear Behnam and Mohsen

I just wanted to inform you that I'm also reading your stories, I was looking for some suitable time to write here but it seems this procrastination will lead me to nowhere, thus I decided to contribute by announcing my presence as well and in sha Allah I'll try to participate in this wonderful forum with amazing people like you, I'm glad from bottom of my heart that you guys started writing again, I remember a few weeks ago I emailed you to your yahoo mail but it seems that email is not active anymore When I saw a notification from this thread it made my day from the day you started writing again I was reading enthusiastically. I wish you all the best with your life and your learning journey.
Kindly remember me in your prayers

Have a wonderful Friday

Hi Arsalan,

You do not imagune how amazed I became when I saw your post! Thank you man! How are you doing? Oh, that is unbelievable, Arsalan is here! We have chatted and spoken with each other through Skype many years ago. Do you remember? You were a great lover of learning the English language and your English was excellent. You were planning to marry to a girl in your nighbourhood, what happend? You were working on ship I guess and, as far as I can remember, you were studying about sea related major.

Welcome man! You made me very happy. THANKS! :ok:

Let me end this post right here, as for I am amazed and shocked. I cannot write more now. There is a saying in the persian language "two mountains do not reach each other, but people do"! Internet has made that saying come true much easier and sooner than our imagination! Actually, this is one of the advantages of the Net.

All the best,
Behnam, 14 January, 2022

Dear Arsalan,

In such situations french people often say:
Arsalan! Quelle surprise! Ca fait longtemps qu'on ne c'est pas vus. Je suis hyper heureux de te voir.

What a surprise! It's been a long time since we last saw each other. I am very happy to see you.

All the best,

Hi dear Behnan

I'm glad to know that you still remember me and shocked by your amazing memory with the details you had about me in your mind, may Allah save this ability for you till the end of your journey to this planet earth, Whatever you have mentioned was true, I got married and living a happy life with her we have two children and left that shipping company during this years I was a representative of an Indian company in Chabahar for three years but sadly they left due to reimposing of sanctions since that time till now which is two years I'm enjoying my life with teaching English and currently I"m running an English institution under the supervision of the International University of Chabahar, I don't know how to express my joy about chatting with you again after about 5 years of period.
Meanwhile, I'm really interested in your French learning journey, I wish you the best of luck with it.

Hope to see you in person one day.

How is it going dear friend,
Sorry for being late to reply, That is my busy life as an office worker, children , life affairs and also I am member of many groups here and there :lol:

Hurrieh is studying at university , as a PHD student , I contact her through whatsapp group. but she is not active as much as before.
You know that there is no locked door in front of Isfahani people but if God doesn't lock the door. {-:

You didn't tell me about the two years absent !!?
How are the twins , how old they are? are you still a commuter to Tabriz?

Have a great Thursday
Dear Mohsen,

How are you doing? I hope you are doing well. Thank you very much for being here for a long time. Thank you once again for your long friendship. That's a great honour for me to be your friend.

Hurrieh is studying PhD? Great! Is it possible to have her account address in WhatsApp?

I agree that Isfahani people can open all locks. :lol:

About two years absence, I could not have access to such places. I cannot say more! :lol:

Twins are doing well. They are nine years old. They could be better boys, but unfortunately Crona 19 virus caused them to be far from schools and books, and close to parents instead. That's a big problem! {-:

How many children have you got? How are they doing? How old are they?

We finished the project in Tabriz recently. We are going to have another one. It is not finalized yet. I hope the authorities will choose me as the technical consultant again.

All the best,
Behnam, 14 January, 2022

Hi dear Behnam
Glad to see that you are active as before , I payed a visit to a person who has come back fro Karbala recently , revive the memories I had from my last visit about two years ago ,before Corona virus outbreak.

Hurieh chose a name in whatsapp ,Ms Secretive , as she is very reserved and cautious and she likes to be secretive.
Recently she put away whatsapp to study as much as possible.
If you like , you can join us in whatsapp group ,and enjoy online chatting. also you are a good speaker and I am good listener. it helps you improve your speaking and I improve my listening :lol:

Dear Behnam my childern are older that you , I am an old man , and after I was infected by serious corona , I feel I am 10 year older as I lost 50% of my power .
Tonight I went to fitness club, registered for body building. may in near future I regain my power .

I hope you finalized the contract of new project and you earn a lot of money in this way.

have a good week

I just wanted to inform you that I'm also reading your stories, I was looking for some suitable time to write here but it seems this procrastination will lead me to nowhere, thus I decided to contribute by announcing my presence as well and in sha Allah I'll try to participate in this wonderful forum with amazing people like you, I'm glad from bottom of my heart that you guys started writing again, I remember a few weeks ago I emailed you to your yahoo mail but it seems that email is not active anymore When I saw a notification from this thread it made my day from the day you started writing again I was reading enthusiastically. I wish you all the best with your life and your learning journey.
Kindly remember me in your prayers

Have a wonderful Friday

Arsalan from Chabahar
Dear Arsalan ,
My pleasure to have you here , we need an admiral in this forum , as you have good experience in this field , so you are the captain from now on , Captain Arsalan.

Actually I didn't see many cities of Iran , I can say visiting Chabahar is one of my dreams which should comes trues very soon {-:
My last visit to south of Iran was about many years ago ,when I was sent to Bandar Abbas with a group of students to visit Rajaei wharf. there I saw a cargo ship for the first time and I thought that it was a 20 floor building {-:

No matter how big the sea may be, sometimes two ships meet.
See you

Dear Arsalan!

It was very nice reading your reply. You are married and you have got two children! That's great!
Yes, we have chatted and also discussed different social and general topics privately and in Dreams 'N Motion! I hope you remember that place.
That site was a golden opportunity for people to improve their language skills. There were some french speakers from different countries. At that time I couldn't take the opportunity of keeping contacts with them. I wish I could have another chance to meet them. Have you got any addresses, links, contacts, etc. related to french learning communities?
Whatever can help me with learning French is requested!😂😂😂

Please write more about Chahbahar. I am interested in that area of Iran. You know, your city and my motherland are exactly on the opposite sides and corners of Iran. Right now the mountains are covered by snow in Azerbaijan province, but I am sure, the weather is not cold in Chahbehar.

Take a photo of sea and share with us. I have heard that the beach is beautiful and clean in the south. I haven't seen it.

This is a photo of my village and its mountains on the border of Armenia and Azerbaijan. You can see the difference of blue sky in this picture with other blue skys in Iran. In Tehran for example, the sky is grey almost always!
The photo is taken on Sunday(yesterday), 16 January, 2022

Hi dear Behnam,

Thank you for the beautiful picture of winter landscapes you shared it , very nice and cold

This year I have not seen snow in Isfahan yet, I hope God send our share in month of Bahman.

These days the market is crowed ,on occasion of mother day on Sunday , the reason of Mother day in Iran return to birthday of Lady Fatemeh a.s ( daughter of prophet Mohummad PBUH). The greatest woman of world

So I should buy some gifts , the problem is that everything is expensive , also I don't like wandering about the street.
If you want to chat with me join me in a whatsapp group , I send the link privately .
Also Hurieh is busy studying , you can't find her these days {-: , maybe she join us in future

See you

Hello Dear friends
I believe that life is like a box of chocolate you never know what is the next, actually, it is a quote from Forrest Gump's movie, I saw myself planning all the time to control and overcome the future of my life but most of the times I find myself in the middle of nowhere doing totally a different thing than what I was expected, fortunately, I realized circle of life is like this if you understand how does it work then you can take is easy and find your way, I found that instead of trying to control life we should give it a direction toward our ambitions we can not control a flowing river, however, we can direct it and we can take benefit of it.

Anyway I just wanted to warm up my writing with the previous paragraph, I want to tell you guys that I miss you guys a lot, If you have any WhatsApp groups kindly add me there, by the way, I made my own discussion forum (discuss.ieltsarsalan.com) It's empty now but I hope you guys will find it useful to write there as well sometime, I made this forum for my student to practice their writing over there It would be my honor to have you there. writing is a really useful practice organizing our thoughts and saving them.

✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

If you want to have a happy life
Tie your life to an ideal goal !

If instead of "goals", people and objects are replaced
The "joy of soul and spirit" replace with the anxiety of heart and soul
And what could be better than "always being with God."and purity and piety.
