علی ای همای رحمت تو چه آیتی خدا را / که به ماسوا فکندی همه سایه هما را

دل اگر خداشناسی همه در رخ علی بین / به علی شناختم من به خدا قسم خدا را

به خدا که در دو عالم اثر از فنا نماند / چو علی گرفته باشد سر چشمه بقا را

مگر ای سحاب رحمت تو بباری ارنه دوزخ / به شرار قهر سوزد همه جان ماسوا را

برو ای گدای مسکین در خانه علی زن / که نگین پادشاهی دهد از کرم گدا را

به جز از علی که گوید به پسر که قاتل من / چو اسیر تست اکنون به اسیر کن مدارا

به جز از علی که آرد پسری ابوالعجائب / که علم کند به عالم شهدای کربلا را

چو به دوست عهد بندد ز میان پاکبازان / چو علی که میتواند که بسر برد وفا را

نه خدا توانمش خواند نه بشر توانمش گفت / متحیرم چه نامم شه ملک لافتی را

بدو چشم خون فشانم هله ای نسیم رحمت / که ز کوی او غباری به من آر توتیا را

به امید آن که شاید برسد به خاک پایت / چه پیامها سپردم همه سوز دل صبا را

چو تویی قضای گردان به دعای مستمندان / که ز جان ما بگردان ره آفت قضا را

چه زنم چونای هردم ز نوای شوق او دم / که لسان غیب خوشتر بنوازد این نوا را

«همه شب در این امیدم که نسیم صبحگاهی / به پیام آشنائی بنوازد آشنا را»

ز نوای مرغ یا حق بشنو که در دل شب / غم دل به دوست گفتن چه خوش است شهریارا

Fluency!

Postby behnam » Wed Jul 23, 2014 5:35 pm

Key words for fluency


Fluency is the ability to speak naturally, listen efficiently, read quickly, and write well. What does this mean?


1) Speaking naturally means NOT making everything up one word at time, but speaking in whole expressions at normal speed.

2) Listening efficiently means understanding people at the speed at which they speak. This means that when you hear the first word of an expression or the first few words of a sentence, you know how it is going to end.

3) Reading quickly means that your eye is ahead of your brain! You are able to predict what author has written.

4) Good writing is writing which expresses exactly what you want to say in natural ways which the reader will immediately understand.

All those skills depend on having a large store of words and expressions which you don't need to think about or construct every time you use English. The more collocations you know, the less you need to think! And the more fluent your English becomes.

Your Answers Are Correct!

Postby behnam » Sun Jul 27, 2014 3:08 pm

Hi Seti,

Thank you very much for completing the sentences. Your answers are correct, but I've got some other suggestions, since some answers are replaceable. For example, 'to show your anger' can be replaced by 'to express your anger' in many cases. However, 'to express something' means to tell or show what you are feeling or thinking by using words, looks, or actions, whereas 'to show something' means to let someone see something. There are slightly different.

In order to practise(actually, when I am writing a sentence, I am practising English skills.) using those collocations, I am rewriting the sentences.


1) Drivers are blocking the motorway to express their anger over high fuel costs.
2) The player couldn't control his anger and shouted at the referee.
3) The destruction of the mosque has aroused throughout the Muslim world.
4) I still feel a lot of anger towards my father, who left home when I was 3.
5) I'm sorry for what I said last night. It was said in a moment of anger.
6) I felt a sudden surge of anger welling up inside me. I had to fight to control it.
7) Her comments provoked an uncharacteristic outburst of anger from the minister.
8) The cyclist shouted at the driver and shook his fist in anger.
9) From behind the door I could hear voices raised in anger.
10) He looked straight at me and his dark eyes blazed with anger.
11) When my son doesn't get his way, he stamps his feet in anger.
12) Psychologists say that it is better to express your anger rather than let it fester inside you.
13) Don't take your anger out on me, I had nothing to do with it!
14) Let us make sure that we do not direct our anger and frustration on to people who are only trying to help us
15) I felt guilty that I had shown my anger and frustration.

Thank you for reading.
