Hi Behnam,

You give me high morale by your descriptive sentences about my abilities, although they are exaggerative.

The temperature fluctuates in autumn between 14 at nights to 34 at days. The difference of 20 degree causes many people catch a cold, the nose runs, coughing, sore throat and fever. When a person sneezes close to us, we say God bless you, but we afraid of catching cold, Is it an epidemical disease around us? Apart from this problem I can't avoid of watching the beauties of autumn, particularly if I follow the twisted road beside the river to the mountainous area.

I am also happy in this beautiful autumn, because during this week I was helpful for some people. I paid a visit to a sick person who was deaf and blind. He had problem for taking bath, so I asked his wife let me to wash him in the bath room. It was difficult, because he couldn't adjust the hot water tap, so he hit the wall or shower-bath. He was not able to see and hear. He was only living with his feeling of touch, so I couldn't tell him who I am; sometimes he thought that I am his wife. Finally I finished his washing and covered him with a towel. His wife prayed for me.
I am thankful to God for all the blessings that he has sent to me and my family through his grace.

All the best,
Mohsen

Dear Nana,

Sorry for being late , in your last post, you said what had happened for one of your friend who had a hardware store. The problem is how to distinguish genuine goods from fake goods. Some goods are apparently the same in shape and packing, but the quality is different. The problem is that the quality of a good is detected when we use it. For example when a hardware as a building block of a computer case is set up and used , the quality of hardware is not detected right away ,it may works one year,but after one year it would be failed to work, there would be a defect in the system. At that time the guarantee period has been finished ,and you have lost a lot.
Unfortunately nowadays the fake goods are manufactured with a label and mark of the genuine manufacturer. Many of goods which are purchasing from Germany or USA are manufactured in Turkey and China. The buyers are being confused and don't know what to do.
There are different markets in Iran, when you buy a TV which has guarantee and also the seller issues an invoice for TV. You are able to fill a petition for seller ,if he shirks to meet the guarantee.
In frontier markets, there are many different home appliances on sale ,but there is no invoice and guarantee for the goods.
If your friend is a wholesaler, he should buy only from OEM factories, The factories which Original Equipment manufacturer , They have certification of chamber of commerce ,certification of QC organizations and standards.

All the best,
Mohsen

Hi, dear!
Well, I have been going through a lot these past two or three weeks. So, I haven't been well at all, however, I will do my best to feel better. Anything lasts forever.
That's why I have been so lost. In fact, I feel I am lost in every sense of my life now.
On the other hand, my vacations are over. So, I started working as a Teacher of English here in my hometown.
Best regards.

Hello to you all

Postby mortaza » Sat Sep 29, 2012 9:59 am

Dear all,

My name is Mortaza, 32 years old, male, from Iran. I am a teacher; I teach mathematics.

I started learning to write English a few years ago. One day, I was searching the Internet and I found very accidentally a thread created by dear Behnam. For me, it was very useful; I wrote almost every day. Later, for some reasons, Behnam and his friends moved to other website and then to another one.

For a while, I was disconnected from him and his wonderful circle of friends. A few weeks ago, again accidentally[!], I found Behnam and I could send him a message. I asked him if he still maintain the community. He replied "yes", and he gave me the address of this website. Today, I registered and now I am here.

At the end I would like to give special greeting to my freinds
Behnam, Mohsen, Elham, Veronica, ...
[I am not sure if my sentence is grammatically correct. I hope you understand what I mean :-) ]

All the best,

Mortaza

Hi Mortaza,

WOW! Do my eyes deceive me? Welcome back Mortaza. How are you man? I'd missed you and your wonderful posts very much. I've missed your daughter too. How is she? I hope all is going well with you and with your family. Oh, my heart is beating quickly, and my eyes are tearful now.

Dear Mortaza, after some conflict between Clare(the runner of English-at-home) and Mohsen she locked the thread. We had to leave that place and make nest in another place. First, mistakenly we moved to an isolated site. We stayed there for some months The site was like an island. We didn't meet any new friends on that site.Actually, it was against the policy of this thread to be in an isolated place. Then, we moved to another site. We were writing there for some months, but it ended in conflict again! After some arguments, the thread got locked for the second time!

Honestly speaking, in both cases, heated topics caused us to argue with the administrators.

We were sad and disappointed. I started to fly in the sky to find a nice place to make nest in. I Searched a lot. Finally, I found this friendly atmosphere and we decided to make a nest on this wonderful and powerful site. As you may know, we have been writing here since the last January. On this site, thankfully, we haven't faced with any difficulties and problems. Well, the host is patient and the guess is careful! It works like a two-way road. In other words, I should say mutual respect has resulted in lasting friendship at peace.


I'd like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to the runners for creating, managing and monitoring such a wonderful, helpful and powerful site. Thank you very much indeed.

Dear Mortaza, Many thanks for your care, attention, and support. I hope we will have happy moment in this place. I really and sincerely welcome you with open arms. You are most welcome.

Hope to hear from you soon.

All the best,
Behnam, 29 September, 2012

Hi Oriani,

It is sad to hear that you have had some difficulties in your life(that is what I got from your post. Please forgive me if I am wrong). I hope you have coped with them and handled them completely.

Oh, in Iran, a new education year has started since 20th of September. As well as education centers, teachers and students are busy these days. I guess, the same has happened in your country. Anyway, I wish you great success in your life.

Thank you very much for following this thread and reading or posting in it. I hope to read more from you.

Good luck with teaching.

All the best,
Behnam, 29 September, 2012

Dear Behnam,

Thank you very much for your warm welcome! It makes me feel very comfortable.

My daughter, Negar, is now 4 years old (3 years and 9 months, to be precise). She is very cute and I love her (as much as I love my son). Today, for the first time, my wife and I took her to a kindergarten. We stay with her for more than one hour, to make sure she feels comfortable and safe in the new place. Then we came back home all together. She was happy.

Tomorrow, my wife is going to take her to the kindergarten and she will be with her for the time our daughter will be there. We will maintain this situation as long as we are sure that she will stay by herself. I hope Negar can adopt this new condition.

My wife is a housewife. Sometimes she complains of being, somehow, isolated and inactive. She believes that if she dose not have to take care of our daughter, at least for a couple of hours, then she will have enough time to take care of her own needs and programs. I agree with here. So we decided to put Negar in a kindergarten every day for 2 or 3 hours.

Thanks for reading. I am looking forward to hear from you as well as other friends.

All the best,
Mortaza

Hi Oriani,

Thank you for your post and spending your precious time on reading and writing in this thread. That's very kind of you.

I wonder why do you copy and paste a long post completely and just write a short sentence at the bottom?. I think it is better to copy and past a short sentence from a post and write a long post at the bottom. :lol: :lol: :lol: How do you think? This is just to let you know that I really love reading your long posts. Please put aside posted articles and put into words something about yourself, your country, your job, your likes and dislikes, your hobbies, your experience, etc.

I hope to hear from you soon.

All the best,
Behnam, 30 September, 2012

Hi Mortaza,

It was very nice reading about you and your family. Thank you very much for writing about your cute daughter. Oh my God! She is old enough to go to kindergarten. It was, as if, a few days ago you said you had a baby daughter!

That's a good for children to spend some time in a nursery school, before starting primary school. They learn a lot of things. Some kindergartens have good teachers and interesting programs. As well as entertaining children, they teach them useful things. Plus, children can make friends and learn how to socialize with others.

On the other hand, your wife will have enough time to work or to care more about you. Cooking delicious food, ironing, washing and cleaning on time, etc. You know, she will have less excuses to ignore your rights as a husband. Hehehehe... :lol: :lol: :lol: You deserve a pat on the back Mortaza, bravo wise man. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I am very much looking forward to hearing from you as soon as you can!

All the best,
Behnam, 30 September, 2012

Dear Morteza,

It is my pleasure to meet your post here. I hope you are doing well and enjoy your life in Semnan.

I am here beside Behnam and other friends since I like them and enjoy being among them. This forum also makes me active in English language ,keeping what I have learned about English language in my mind ,and learn to write new sentences and words. This is a bridge to English language world.

I spend my spare times by reading books, going picnic , swimming , watching movies,internet and following news.
What I get from the news ,particularly the trick news of BBC last night is that our enemies has started an economical war, Iran is being forced to submit to their illegal orders.

I remember that you were following swimming. Do you still continue your exercise . Last night I went to swimming pool by bicycle , it was very cold ,so on the way back to home I was trembling. To prevent of catching cold I went under the quilt to nail it down when I sleep.

Prevention is always better than cure.

All the best,
Mohsen

Dear Nana,

Both of dealer and retailer are responsible and answerable to law. Being unawareness doesn't exonerate a person form being guilty.

Some people receive the punishment belonging to others.

Dear Nana

Thank you so much for your message to me and thank you for giving me the address of that website. Right after I read your post I visited that webiste and tried to download the files. However, I was not successful in getting them. I think the host responses a little slow. In addition, my Internet speed is not very satisfactory these days!

Dear Nana! Tell me more about yourself! Are a male or a female? How old are you? What do you do (as a worker)?

Thank you for reading.

All the best,
Mortaza

Hi Behnam,

How are you my friend?

Yes! the time is passing very fast! Our time is very short! It goes as fast as melting an ice in a summer day! As you said, it was, as if, yesterday that my first child was born. Now he is 8 years old.

We are living in a small city, because of my job. People in this city suffer from lack of facilities in many aspects: education, health, etc. The atmospher in that kindergarten is not as we expect. Sometimes you can hear a child crying, calling his/her mom! There are lots of parents that put their children in the nursery school just becasue they are both employed. Some children are very young! Two years old for example. They are not ready to be away from their parents for a long time. My wife says that these parents must be very cruel that they leave their little children for many hours.

Today, I did not accompany my wife and my daughter when they went to the kindergarten. My wife says that today Negar was not as haapy as she was yesterday! It makes us uncertian about putting her in the kindergarten. I think we would try for one or two more days and then we would come to decision if it is useful, in summary, to put our daughtr in the kindergarten.

I hope to hear from you soon.

All the best,

Mortaza

Hi Mohsen,

How are you my good friend? I am very glad that I have still the opportunity to read your beautiful writings and to write to you. Your writings are very rich in vocabulary and sometimes I have difficulties to understand them completely. I learn a lot from them.

I love biking. But, since I do not have a bike, I can't enjoy it! I want to buy one in the next summer. I prefer to go to work by bike, but I am pretty sure that it will seem unusual to the students. They may think that I am a poor person that I cannot afford buying a car.

As you said, I love swimming and running. In the summer time I try to keep a regular program for running and swimming. In the winter time I just go swimming. I know how to swim and this is why I enjoy it a lot. Lots of people come to swimming pool and spend must of their time by talking and chatting. They sit or stand on the edge of the swimming pool and talk and laugh, etc. I try to keep swimming for 45 to 50 minutes continuously.

I hope to hear from you very soon.

All the best,

Mortaza

Ok, dear all.

My real name is Oriana from Venezuela but my former college classmates named me Oriani. So, when I decided to join to EC in 2005, I selected "Oriani" as a username and actually people started calling me like that.When I first came to EC , I was 18 years old and I was barely an English teacher trainee. I didn't come by chance; my professors asked us to join to the website to make friends and exchange experiences regarding to the English learning/teaching process. Oh and as you can see, I am Miss EC 2007 and I got a prize for it: a nice EC sweater =)

I have made good friends from here. In fact, I have exchanged presents from each country we are from. Nice. I would like to do that again. I haven't received any gift since 2008, I think =(
I also have a MyEnglishClub page in case you want to visit my EC blogs and photos http://my.englishclub.com/profile/Oriani

On the other hand, I am a teacher of English here in my country and I have been graduated for two years. I work at a Military college and I am willing to get a new job as an English teacher in high school. Also, I am a musician: I play the Violin and I sing.

About Venezuela: Well, I have posted many many threads about Venezuela here on The Latin forum. If you ever have time to take a look at it, I invite you to visit it =), but as for now, what I can tell you is that I am proud of my country , which is located at the Southern part of the American continent. Yes, I am an American but from the south ( not only the US citizens are the American ones).

About my personal life: I'm single. Yes. I used to be in a 4-year-relationship but we broke up. It didn't work out anymore. Now? I am in love with someone else that I actually met here on EC in 2005 but it is an impossible love and honestly I wouldn't like to talk about that anymore because it is really painful for me now. ( I do not have any babies yet, not boyfriend/husband ...)

What do I like? Life, animals, food, travelling, teaching, learning languages, music and genuine people. What don't I? Fake people and politics.

What else can I say?
Best regards.

Hi Mortaza,

How are you and how are your wife and children?

Welcome to this thread! It's nice to rejoin an old member to Let's learn together. I hope all the members regather here again and rebuild that warm atmosphere.. How great that would be!!! :-D

Unfortunately, I wasn't lucky enough to be with you in the first Let's learn together. However, I saw all what happened and how and who caused to close it. That was a big loss for all of us obviously. :(

Dear, you may don't know me so let me introduce myself to you. I am Amal, female. 23 years old from Damascus-Syria.

I read all your posts here and I knew that your daughter is going to the kindergarten. I hope she enjoy her time there. However, I think that she is still too young for that. In fact, I think that the best age for sending kids to the kindergarten is 5 years old cause they become able to leave their mothers and make new relationship with others. On the other hand, kids at this age catch a lot of diseases easily so it's better to keep them save in home...

For me, I love 3 or 4 years kids so if I was a mother, I would like to spend and not waste every minute with my children cause at this age they become very funny, lovely and naughty. :-D

Anyway, wish you a happy life.

Take care,
Bye bye
