Hi Amoure,

How are you? I hope your life is filled with joy and happiness. Thank you for your friendly message. Happy Valentin's Day to YOU too!

There is a fountain pen in my shirt pocket; always filled with Royal Blue German Pelikan ink! Its colour is violet. The colour attracts people's attention. Many friends of mine have tried to take it, but I never give this pen to anybody! I love it and its colour very much. The brand is Parker; a very famous one.

I guess it was 7 years ago; in November 2006, I entered the virtual world(=the Net) in order to practise English. I clearly remember the first person who sent me PM(private message) when I was in a chat room. Good old days!

Those two small stories told you to make this conclusion: Time goes, everything goes, we also go, but love and kindness are everlasting!

All the best,
Behnam, 14 February, 2013

I am always available!

Post by behnam » Thu Feb 14, 2013 5:09 pm

Dear Amoure,

There is something special about me; being always available for friends. Some people don't care about others. I always say to my friends that even solid things have feelings. But, some people are so cruel. They don't care about human rights! They impose emotional sanction on others! hehehehehe...

Have some feelings instead of speaking about its price! Man narahat nemisham, but speaking about price is not dar shane you! Hehehehehe...

Man ke hamishe injam(I am always here, easily available)!

By the way, you should know, women are more emotional(then kinder) than men. Taking this factor into consideration you will find me a different man, more emotional than other men. :lol: :lol: :lol:

All the best,
Behnam, 14 February, 2013

I have three precious books in my bookshelf. I love them so much. They are valuable to me not for they are expensive but for they are gifted to me by a very lovely friend. First pages of the books are covered by a very wonderful handwriting and the comments are written by a fountain pen! :-D
Through lines I read kindness and affection of the writer. Definitely the writer has a heart of gold. Reading comments, I'm always filled with joy and feel proud of my awesome friend.

I'm writing this post to tell my friend a big :

My dear Amal,

Having seen your wonderful crochet works on facebook, I'm here to tell you a heartfelt
"HAPPY Valentine's Day!" :-D

Honey, you are doing great on crocheting. Before you told me you were taking crocheting class, I had thought about it and asked my aunt to find a good class for me to attend . But I'm in hurry; how many things can I do in the same time? One by one... :lol: Seeing your works, my interest for doing this job even doubles! I really enjoy seeing them, it motivates me more and more.

Thanks for your very kind post to us; Behnam and me! For sure this great feeling of friendship is mutual between us. You have the heart of a sparrow, you are soooooo pure and kind. Thanks for being our friend.

Take care o yourself and your gentle fingers; don't make them too tired* :-)

Love,
Elham

I've missed YOU!

Post by behnam » Fri Feb 15, 2013 5:26 pm

Hi Amal,

The story of missing friends is endless. I've missed you terribly. I check the thread and the mailbox frequently to see a sign from friends, to pacify myself, but nothing on the horizon! You know, a kindness is put there, in the deep layers of heart. It doesn't go out; as long as I am alive!

Comparing to other days, Friday afternoons are different in that on Fridays; in the afternoons, I am about to die of missing friends. Oh, nobody can understand how I feel-how I am-when I miss my friends.

Let me cry like clouds. Don't blame me for impatience. Mountains are wailing. Oceans are tempestuous. Why? Friends are miles away!

I just revealed some small senses of nostalgia for good old days in the past with friends. The deeper levels of distress cannot be shown by words. How do people feel when they cut their fingers with a cutter when; for instance, they are peeling or dicing potatoes? My heart feels that pain long, as if you cut your fingers again and again! How do people feel when a thorn penetrates their body? My heart feels this sharp pain long.

Oh, let's cease wailing!

Thank you for your friendly message.

All the best,
Behnam, 15 February, 2013

Hi there Behnam,

How are you doing? How's the life of "Big Daddy Konkuri" going? :-D Oh I am hoping very well!
Yeaaaaah took the exam and I feel so0o0om fresh now, like I want to a devour a veeeery big library of amusing literary novels that I postponed reading.
Oh dear, I have taken lots of exams during these years and tell you what, NONE were standardized except the TOEFL or IELTS or SAT samples(oh and the test for the Testing and Teaching courses) Almost none! And you want to know why? Because all these books written about testing materials, organizing test formats and the pretesting are mere slogans! Mere slogans! They never get anything out of it except pushing the students to study the Testing book and then take its "exam"!
The M.A was almost to test our memories rather than the literary skills and their application in the actual material. THREE questions were dedicated to " how does the poem bla bla start?"! Can you imagine this? THREE!
Uh what do I say! There is a lot to complain and no one to listen, and I am afraid you might get dizzy :-D

Oh Ostaaaad, ostaaaaad, come on! The same trick again? kami how is my English? :-D I would not fall for that this time! Your English module, especially for YOU, would not even need a re-reading!
You will be fine I promise!
Our omumi part was kind of like yours. 20 grammar, 20 vocab, 10 close test, 20 reading comprehension! Hehe, there was a VERY obvious flaw about the comprehension part and guess what it was?! In Testing methodology it is said that the range of questions begins with easy, medium then hard! And guess how were the three readings represented to us? A little hard, TOO hard, VERY simple, like a real novice could also answer that!

I am only helping you with a piece of advise and that would be read vocabulary as much as you can because they know that M.A or PhD test takers got way too much problems with this part!

Oh and one last thing, what is all the story of fountain pens and writings? Almost everyone's got a post on that :-D

Hope to read from you so soon,

Hi Kami,

Many thanks for your reply, although it is sent late and my request is ignored! I appealed to you to help me with the English module in my PhD exam; to give me some advice on it, but you told me a cock and bull story about your own desires and experience:
Yeaaaaah took the exam and I feel so0o0om fresh now, like I want to a devour a veeeery big library of amusing literary novels that I postponed reading.
I am happy that you have cared about using gerund after 'postpone', but it is wearing to see the incorrect usage of 'devour'!

Kami, for the love of God, spend some time and ponder my plea for help! Obviously, vocabulary is vitally important, but how can I enlarge my vocabulary range? Do you think '504 Absolutely Essential Words' is a good book for my purpose? The exam day is coming, but I've done nothing for English module! Sad :-( :-( :-(

You are an English teacher now. As a close friend, I expect you to pay some attention to my request. The situation is critical. I am under a lot of pressure. Instead of pacifying, you are snubbing and sneering! :-( :-( :-( For the sake of God; for the sake of friendship, this is a very serious matter! Take this stuff seriously!

Sorry for recklessness! I expect you more! Help! Help! Help! This is not a trick! :-( :-( :-(

I am impatiently looking forward to hearing from you.

All the best,
Behnam, 16 February, 2013

Hi There

Post by Kamelia » Sun Feb 17, 2013 7:08 am

Hi Ostad,

Punching somebody on the face and then expecting her to teach you how to "punch"?! :-D

Thanks for correcting me though. Ostad jan, how can I help you if you still are hovering on my grammatical mistakes? I was so blushed when I saw your post!
Well anyway, 504 is a drag, do not rely on that. There is a 1100 essential words and I am sure you have seen that. It is a red-colored book and you could easily find that. Study at least one week every night but I am DEAD sure that you are familiar with almost all the words in it. Next book would be the College Bound for university and high school students (don't mind its name, the content's more than a high school material) which is a green-colored book. I got the flash cards which work better than the book for me. I can carry them everywhere with me. Then would be the English SAT exam words for which I got a file and would email to you if you wanted.
Oh Sweet Behnam, please donot do this to me, this is not my house so I could check the internet everyday. We have to walk for almost a kilometer to reach the pc-room, so... :-(

Waiting,

Hi there

Post by Kamelia » Sun Feb 17, 2013 7:59 am

Dear Mohsen,

How are you doing? Well wishing friends worse a million, thanks for your kindness.
Dear Mohsen, I have chosen to study English Literature because that is a subject I really think suits my taste and everything.

O0o0oh so that happens to you too, hmm? :-D Yeah It is the same with me :-D Every time you check your pocket you find a new card and new cards mean new numbers and pass codes. Hateful! :-x

Hmmm...I believe that one should not memorize too many numbers. I do not really know the reason why but I feel more comfortable this way. You know, I think when you memorize numbers they occupy too much space in your memory which could be used for better stuff. I know it seems weird, but I just think this way :-D

Hehe, funny to say but sometimes I forget things right at the moment that I should not have. It hurts, I know, but I cannot help it. You know what I do for stop forgetting things when I do not want to? I write them in my cell phone notes, so that I have them every time I need them. Simple and easy. Oh but you might not carry yours everywhere so maybe you might want to use a paper. That works best too :-D

I remember Behnam always told me do not let the posts neutral, ask a question so you could have the chance to continue writing but right now my mind goes blank, honestly!

Ohhh something popped up. Rather than numbers, do you forget taking your cards with you? Has it ever happened that you were driving to a city for business or traveling case and then suddenly in the middle of the road remembered that you forgot taking your petrol card? or Driving license? :-D

Hope to read from you so soon,

Dear Amal,
How are you dear? Thank you so much for the warm welcome.
Oh I happened to read your post to Mohsen. It was about bringing gifts to a bride and so. I was wondering that do you really think he is trying to fool her? Or you mean fool in a good way?

I mean why should a groom fool the one he loves, is he not going to live with her till the rest of his life? Has not he chosen her as his partner?

Oh God, too many questions, I know. Would you be kind to let me know of your opinion?

Hope to read from you so soon,

I couldn't find 1100 Essential Words!

Post by behnam » Sun Feb 17, 2013 11:49 am

Hi Kamelia,

Many thanks for your reply. Thank you for paying attention to my request. You are very kind. I didn't punch you in the face! I didn't slapped you across the face! It is forbidden, in Islam, to touch a girl's body(face, hand, ...)! I am a religious person. How could I do that? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I never correct people, but I don't know why I like teasing you by highlighting something mistakes in your posts. I've told you many times that my bread-making subject is Physics. For me, learning English is like playing game or doing something for fun. It is not essentially important for me to be expert at English. But, you are different in that you are going to make money by being involved(teaching, translating, interpreting, ...) in English. You should be very cautious, since your role is important. You are the guider or the leader of the team! Got it? I hope so! :lol:

Your English is excellent. You are a humble person. You never show off. In fact, your friendly manner and humble behaviour have made me valor to pull your leg firmly! Oh, I must be careful. Too much pulling, or pulling firmly may damage your leg! :lol: :lol:

Dear Kami, I couldn't find the ebook of '1100 Essential words'. Could you please email me all the files you've got about vocabulary? It'd be kind of you if you could send me the mentioned file about ...SAT EXAM...

Oh, Kami, don't be that much lazy. You are a young girl. You should jump over one kilometer. :lol:

I am waiting.

All the best,

I've missed talking with you in a way that I can't wait anymore. Please let's arrange a time for chatting and just talk and talk and laugh and laugh.....
I couldn't open messenger and put my message there so I came here.

My soul needs to talk with you. You know? Oh, Amal tonight I'm full of feelings for you...
Come and hug me firmly, I need your kindness....

Impatiently waiting for meeting you,

Hi Kami,

How are you?

Thanks for your kind post to me.

Dear I was just trying to make Mohsen write the same as you did with us. {-;

However, in fact my question was serious, some men "bridegrooms" try during the engagement period to show a better impression about themselves just to make the brides love them more "this is not bad but in somehow it's fooling cause it isn't their real personality!".

For examples, sometimes they try to pretend that they are generous by giving her a looot of gifts and buy expensive things but after the marriage all this disappear and the brides discover that the grooms are mean. Other times men try to show themselves kind and romantic and again after the marriage the girls find them different. OR maybe...."It might be Behnam's explanation" {-; :lol: :oops: Emm, they try to fool their brides just to have..... :oops: ..... Isn't that fooling??!!! :lol:

Dear, you asked: "is he not going to live with her till the rest of his life? Has not he chosen her as his partner?"

Yes for sure, but maybe they try to change their characters just to let the brides fall in love in the beginning in order to accept living with them the rest of their life, they think that after marriage the girls wouldn't leave them "sometimes women accept to stay with a person who she doesn't like just for her children". Above that, in some cultures, it is bad if a woman got divorced. There are too many reasons for fooling others even our beloved ones so let's stop speaking about the bad things.

Of course, there are a lot of good grooms with good intentions, I am not claiming that ALL men are like that. More over, I don't have a bad view about men but I am just trying to explain what I meant by my question to Mohsen.

So dear what's your opinion? Am I right?! Do you think that it's OK to fool somebody "in a good way"? -as you wrote-

Kami! Now you HAVE TO answer my many questions cause you let me write what Mohsen supposed to do! :-D :lol: "Just kidding"

I am waiting impatiently for your reply.

Best wishes,
Amal

Hi dear Kami,

I'm here tonight just to write to you, my sweet, really SWEET friend. :-D
How are you honey? You should be spending a very delighted time after that important, challenging exam. Hope you are enjoying yourself sweet Kamiiiiiiiiii :-)

What am I doing? Emmm...... I'm living. Have you ever heard such an very accurate answer in your whole life? :lol:


I'm living honey. A life full of Elhamish life!!! {-: Emmmm, strange tonight, yes? :lol:
But believe me, I'm living my Elhamish life,full of thought, learning,work, sleep, eating,stress, calmness, love,hatred, kindness,harshness, affection,laziness,studying,reading...
full of affecting others, being affected by others... full of regret for my past life and many ideas for my present and future life.... full of energy for many activities... full of desire for my dreams... full of thirstiness... full of hope... full of happiness.... full of fear... full of sadness ... full of love...


Ohhhhhhh my God.... I love life! :-D

Oh yea, I know, you are wise enough to say, " this is what all of us do, what was Elhamish about this life full of bla bla bla....above?"
And I answer, " Yes, these arr all common between us, but I'm living them in my own special and unique way!" :lol:

Oh sorry honey, I really don't know how you feel reading these lines but this is what comes to my mind and I just write them here! :roll:


Please write honey, about whatever... I don't know, about... sky... butterflies...sun... flowers... God... friendship... life...happiness...love....marriage...girlish world...pony tails...skirt...make-up...dance...boys...night... day...trees :lol:

You can write about one of these in detail...one of them in short... all of them in detail.. or all of them in short! :-D But write sth for me, I'm looking forward to reading from you.

Hi again Kami,

This is to ask you a question.

kami? Is there any fragrant perfume you know which you can recommend me? I'm looking for a gentle-scented one with a reasonable price! Actually I have one "Coco Chanel" whose odor is just wonderful, but since it's an expensive one, I can't use it frequently everywhere and I need sth else. I'd appreciate it if you could help me in this regard. :-)

Thanks in advance,
Eli

Dear Wilzin,

Thanks for your very friendly request. I personally love to chat with my friends. I always enjoy those nice times when I chat with my selected friends. A group chat is also a good chance for me not only to have fun, but also to be sociable and learn from others' words and opinions. :-)

As you know, dear Behnam is busy with his studies these days. So it's not possible to have such a mentioned chat. Now let's pray for him to do his best. :-)

Wish you the best,
Eli

Hi Ostad

Post by Kamelia » Fri Feb 22, 2013 8:48 am

Dear Sweet Ostad,

How are you doing? How is everything with you? Started reading the SAT words? How do they seem to you?
Dear I seriously suggest that you study them when you are sleepy and then first thing in the morning review them. I mean if it is convenient for you please do it in this way. They will stick to your mind for nearly a hundred years this way :-D

Actually I emailed the College Bound+ 1100 words today. You could take a look at them too but the SAT would be enough, take my words!

Lovely Ostad, you know that I take your words as divine ones since you are the most knowledgeable humane ostad I ever had as a friend, or better to say the only one. I know what you say about me being a teacher and that I must be so careful with my words and grammar. Uh tell you what, sometimes I am just so tired to check my words up in dictionary, and sometimes the time limit does not let me. But I really DO want to be accurate, this is what I always wanted. I mean it is not because I am lazy or anything. Please do not blame me for it, please. I will try to be better.

Writing here is an honor. It is a free place to express yourself, discuss, even make mistakes so that you realize what your mistakes WERE, I learn from them, but all in all, yes you are right. I will try my best.

LOOOOL My leg is being hurt for something like years :-D Just kidding!

Ostad, I wish you the best from really the bottom of my heart. Please do not hesitate to ask if you had any problems, I will always be there for you if I am capable to help.

Hope to read from you so soon,

Hi Amal

Post by Kamelia » Fri Feb 22, 2013 9:20 am

Dear Amal,

How are you dear? Thank you so much the lovely post. Your posts are always full of hope for life, like a beating heart. Thanks for that. Your writing echos a soft music of life here.

Sweet Amal, I know what you say about that fooling thing. You mean the grooms might suffocate the brides with gifts, chocolates and flowers and haunt them with emotions that most might be fake or so...Yeah...I know what you say girl :-D

Oh well, if I were a radical feminist I guess I had to say that YEAAAH, we would not fall for these evil grooms (LOL just kidding) we won't let them trick us.
But as I am an egalitarian so I think it is the same for both genders. Sometimes it might be the grooms doing this sometimes the brides.
Amal, yeah I know it seems shocking but I have seen girls doing that. The groom was so powerful and rich that they thought it worth it to fool them (in this case fooling in a bad way).
Oh but fooling in a good way, sweet Amal, that was a good question. I never had thought about it :?:
Well, it is life Amal, anything is possible in it. Isn't it? However we say we love honesty, we adore truth but there are times that you have to say a white lie, or fool somebody you love for good. Hmm...you know what? Now I am thinking if I have ever done that :?: LOL

Such a challenging question. You know why it is bothering me now? Because now I am realizing that it is not just a man I can love, it could be my roommate, friends or anyone and I am wondering if I have done that ever or not :-D

Amal, what about you? Have you ever fooled anyone in a good way? How was it? What did you do? I mean you could write about the parts that are not so personal.

Hope to read from you so soon,

Hi Ellie

Dear Ellie,

Well hello0o0o there girl. How are you? Do you know how much your post appealed to me? It was nearly a fantastic colorful expression of emotions that I always expect from you. It was a wonderful topicful one but I just do not know which one to choose :))

Life is actually full of all the topics you named, and I believe that Ellie always appreciates the bads almost as easy as the goods. You know what Ellie, you have always been a source of tranquility for me. Your voice, your messages, your posts, there is a special power in them which I am sure is coming from a pure soul. I am not exaggerating, do not think of it :-D I am pure honest now!

Ellie jun, the topics are so many meanwhile too broad. Take a look at them yourself :-D How am I supposed to write about them akhe bi ensaf :-D

Oh but then came a very lovely question from you, you asked me about perfumes. I LOVE buying them. It is so enjoyable, oh but on one condition, what you have coffee beans beside LOOOL

Ellie jun you know that the prices have been doubled so that the one I bought for 13t now I have to buy it for 26t, so...

These are my favorite:
*If you want a cool sweet fragrance try Nike the blue, it is really fresh and relieving. You will almost forget what a busy hectic day you might have a head 8-)
*If you go for cool cucumber stuff go for Dunhill fresh, it also tastes awesome :)) But you might think it a bit masculine :-D
*If you prefer a more feminine lady kind go for Bliss, a VERY elegant feminine one.Mostly a party kind but the essence is adorable, take my word.
*if you go for sweet provoking scents then try She the blue, but if you just want it to be sweet ladylike try She the Red, other kinds are just...you know :mrgreen:
*And finally if you want a sweet girlish sweet thing that titillates the nose of everyone around you and make you feel like you are so delicious that you like to snuggle yourself go for Promise, a pink sweet scent full of life! But don't let the first molecules trick you let some seconds pass then try smelling it again.

Ellie jun, try checking them out and if you liked none do not hesitate to ask me for more names. Fragrances are my favorite. Hope you enjoy checking out the perfume stores, I wish I were there too with you :-D

Enjoy shopping,

Write to me soon,

Hi Kami,

Thanks for your kind words for me, I'm happy to hear so. :-D

Oh honey, I knew you would have great ideas helping me choose the right perfume. I was sure I'm asking from the very right person.Thanks a million for your great suggestions :-)

You know this time I'm just looking for sth to make me smell pleasant. I don't want the perfume to smell very strong or attracts others to me; no, I just want sth very gentle. Emmm, let me put it in other words, I like to be smelled tidy and nice, jut this. Hope you get what I exactly mean. So, which of mentioned perfumes above goes to this category?

Oh honey, come on! I told you can even write about one of them briefly. Put laziness aside and let me enjoy your English. You smell fresh and energetic, I love to hear from you. :-)

Write to me soon ;-)

Hi Ellie,

How are you? Actually I am writing this post in morning. So good morning to you Ellie jun. How is everything going on with you?
Oh regarding the perfumes, come on, I just named some that I like the best. I understand what you say. None of them would, dear. Actually almost all of them so delightful and they do smell natural on you. Umm but now that you say adjectives like neat and tidy and so this reminds me of Rain Drop, so0o0 delightful meanwhile fits perfectly normal on you, like it's your skin's fragrance or sth :-D

Elllieeee, I know you told me to write about them but they are TOO general, you see! Would not I seem foolish if I all of a sudden start writing about my feelings towards butterflies? LOL You need to ask me something about them :-D
Speaking of butterflies, I am reminded of a question :idea: , now that you do not :-D Do you like these butterfly collections? Or any other insects? The ones that they make like a picture in glassy packages which you would pin to the wall and watch whenever you like, do you like to have one? Have you got any taxidermied( haven't got a dictionary here, am not sure of the correctness of this verb) animals at home? Do you agree with the idea of killing and stuffing them like that?

Write to me soon,

You should always leave loved ones with loving words. {-:
It may be the last time you see them. :cry:

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. }:
All you can do is be someone who can be loved. :roll:
The rest is up to them. :oops:

Hi Amal,
The love between the couple is very strong ,so the groom give different gifts to the bride and her family, but it will not continue the same way when they start living and go to their own house.
For example when you want to catch a bird you should pour some seeds in front of bird , but when you catch the bird , you seed the bird when she is hungry.

Hi My sister Elham,

How are you? How are your English classes? Do you write any paragraphs there?! Why don't you share them with us?

Honey, should I say sorry for being late in replying, for being cruel, for being unkind or should I say sorry for all of that?!
Well dear, I really was cruel and unkind although I had my reasons and you already know them all so there is no need to mention them.

However, for me, FRIENDSHIP is the most important thing, it's my life, especially when it came to you, my best friend!

But believe or not I was addicted,addicted to crochet although I was taking medicines which supposed to make me sleep all the time, I was fighting its effect and worked all the days and nights!

Believe me, till now my finger hurts me, I think I have to take a rest :'D But does I do that?! Nooooooo, I still work and work and work even if I don't have to! :-(
Whyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am really ADDICTED! :(

Dear, I have had this habit since I was a kid; If I have to do

something, I keep working on it till it's finished no matter what that cost! " I may not sleep, not eat and not move..etc"
I think it's a bad habit, isn't it?! Do you have such habit? What is your bad habit in your consideration?

Oh my god! I kept talking about crochet and my habit and forgot the main point! OK! Let's back to it.. Dear Eli, although last week I wasn't in my full concentration but be sure that you were always in my mind, in every minute!

Above that, I'd told my mother a LOT about YOU, till she became jealous! {-: I told her how much you helped and supported me, I told her how kind you were and still and I told her that you are my EVERYTHING, you are a gift from god to me!
My mother said: "come on Amal! So what am I to you???!!!" :shock:

Dear, while writing this post, some questions came to my mind so I left them to the end...

Emm, I don't know how to make myself clear to you but I will try my best..

Eli, How would we know that we are talented? In your opinion do you think that having a talent is a learnable thing or the talent is born with the person? And if it's born with the person, how would they know that they have it?!

I know that sometimes it's clear like having a nice voice, when a person sing, he can know that his voice is nice or not.. But in other things it's hard to discover that, so how could we know?!

"Me" for example, I didn't know that I am able to crochet cause believe it or not I had NEVER hold a needle and thread in my hand and more over I hated that! But look what I am doing now! Isn't that strange?!

Dear, I really need your answer about my questions so please write whatever came to your mind and WRITE IT SOOOOOOOOON! {-; :lol:

I am sorry about everything, be sure that I love you!

Best wishes,
Amal

Hi Kami,

How are you?

Thanks for your reply, in fact after reading yout post also I have thought about it a lot; Have I done that ever?! "fooling in a good way"?!...

Emm, well, I am not sure but I don't think so cause either I tell the truth or I "Hist?".

To say the truth, sometimes while dealing with people I try to fool myself just to know what they want and think about. And sometimes I just do that to get what I want. {-; "I am not sure that you get me but I hope so!"

I don't care if they thought that I am fool or naive but it's better than fooling them or doing bad things, isn't it?!

Dear, I agree with the white lies when they don't change anything, when saying the truth or the lie is the same and when it doesn't hurt people or fool them.

However, in general, I hate "lying" even if it was a "white lie" because I believe that a harmful truth is better than a fake lie and feelings.

I prefer to hide things or not saying the whole truth instead of saying white lies since whenever we start a lie we can't stop it or "recede?" it, that would put us in silly situations!

Emm, Oh my god, something have just come to my mind, what would you do if you intend to joke with someone but that person took it too seriously and thought that your action was "cruel or something" then it became a big deal?! Would you continue joking or would you just simply tell them the truth and that you were joking?

Uh, once, something like that happened to me and I really didn't know how to act, it put me in a really silly situation and caused a lot of troubles. :-(

Do you believe that we shouldn't joke with every person "even if they were our friends or something"? Should we know their internal personality first then play jokes on them? And do you think that there is a limit for fun or playing jokes on others?

Hope to read from you soon.

Best wishes,
Amal

Dear friends,

How are you? I hope you are happy and healthy. I hope your life is filled with happiness and joy. Although I don't write as I used to do, I come here everyday and read the posts carefully. I really enjoy your stile of writing. You all write beautifully. Elham sounds like a poet in her posts. Amal sounds like a musician, with a great harmony in her posts, and Wael sounds like a very kind; golden-hearted person. Although kamelia doesn't write regularly, she sounds like a good teacher who plays with English words nicely. Mohsen is absent! He writes short posts as briefly as possible!

Many thanks for your friendship. I feel proud of you. Dear Wael, a special thank for your sweet words and good wishes.

Many things has happened to me, but I don't feel like to tell you them now. I will speak about them soon.

Next Friday this time, I am doing the English module of PhD exam. It is in the afternoon. It is said that the module includes 70 questions. By this time next Friday, I will have finished answering to professional modules such as Modern physics, Quantum Mechanics and Electrodynamics. I will also have finished answering to Educational Talents (Estedad Tahsili).

This week, I am going to stay at home and revise the subjects. The subjects cover all physical phenomena in the universe. The applied mathematics is really difficult. You cannot imagine how much difficult it is to answer a question in 2 minutes. I am absolutely sure that even question makers(designers, setters, planners, ..I don't know what should I call them!) cannot solve some questions in the considered time(2 minutes for each one)! For example, in the previous PhD exam, there was a question about radiation. At home,while fruits bowl, juice, and tea were all in front of me, and my wife was encouraging me, it took me more than an hour to solve it! How could I answer it in a real situation? You may say the answers give some hint, but you are absolutely wrong. The answers were similar, with little difference in their coefficients.

To be honest, one thing gives me some hope. When a question is difficult for me, it is the same for all rivals. However, its negative side shouldn't be denied. When a question seems difficult for a good student, it will seem difficult for a lazy student too. The result is the same. They both cannot answer to the question, so the question cannot separate the right person! In many cases, you know, lazy people are perfect and brave at taking risk. As a rule, wise people are not good at taking risk. Therefore, lazy students have more chance than hardworking ones to take risk and to answer the question by chance. This funny and rather silly event has happened in last year PhD exam. Some universities announced that the accepted students know nothing about Physics!

Anyway, please pray for me. Thank you.

All the best,
Behnam, 1 March, 2013

Dear Kami,

How are you honey? Please accept this big friendly KISS as a token of my apology for being late in replying to your post.

Oh thanks again for your kind suggestion on perfumes. I'll try all of them for sure, since my sweet Kami has smelled them; I wanna smell what she has smelled! :-D

Oh Kamiiii, sorry for introducing ridiculous topics. You know, I'm sometimes silly and say silly things! :-(

Butterflies and a collection of dried ones! Emmm, I had never thought of that actually. It's amusing for me to see such collections but I don't think I tend to have them myself! No I don't enjoy watching dead dried insects! I prefer to enjoy them alive in the nature. I love butterflies and I enjoy seeing different kinds of them. Oh they are angels from heaven flying in the earth's sky! Watching them flying over flowers is one of my pleasures. :-)

I do love to write more to you but at the present nothing else comes to my mind!

Best wishes,
Eli

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

Post by behnam » Wed Mar 06, 2013 4:30 am

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:

Dear Behnam,

Tomorrow morning you're going to take PhD exam and you can't imagine how happy I am for you. I've always been waiting to hear you're going to continue your studies and when you announced you were going to take it this year, I got so happy.

Dear, you truly deserve to be called doctor Behnam; you are already a doctor in Physics, you know as much as a doctor should know. I'm sure your knowledge is even more than many other Physics doctors' in Iran. :-)

Like always, I admire your determination and hard-work. You have tried your best and certainly you will do your best tomorrow.


Dear Behnam, know that Elham's fingers are crossed for you till you finish your exam.I hope you calmness and focus.

I wish sprinkles of luck will be showered upon you while you are taking the test. :-)

Trusting God won't make the mountain smaller but it will make climbing easier. Hope you will be able to climb tomorrow's mountain successfully. :-)


*ta lahzeye akhar baratun doa mikonam. Ishalla hamechi ali pish bere.

****Shireeeeeeeeeee Behnaaaaaaaaaaam****

Good luck, good luck,goodluck

My dear Amal,

How are you honey? Where are you? What are you doing? Oh Amal I'm gradually feeling jealous of this crocheting stuff. It's taking my place in your heart. :-(

Oh honey, can you guess how exactly I'm feeling now, being that late in replying your very kind post to me? I'm sooooooooo ashamed that I don't know what to say. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Several times I started writing to you but sth happened and stopped me, please forgive me honey. You know that I'm not a careless person, I do care about such things very much.

Your bad habit is that you stick with your goal and hard-work, good for you! It's not bad at all, but just be more careful with your health too. Honey you have a whole lifetime ahead to crochet as much as you want, don't make yourself tired with it. Do it as much as you enjoy it and as long as it doesn't hurt you.
My bad habit? Emmm..... I have lots of bad habits. Oh let's forget about it, It'll spoil Elham in your eyes, if I list my bad habits here! :lol: :lol: :lol:

You had another question for me, about people's talents. Nice question. It's always been one of my concerns too! I always ask myself," what is that I'm very good at? What is that talent in which I can shine and through that I can be benevolent to other people?"

It's said that every person has certainly a special talent in something and that one of our responsibilities as a human is to find out our talent and develop it. I always wonder why some people find their interests and talent very soon and start their immediate hard-work on it while for some others years go on, yet they're doing trail and error to discover it! Woooofffff..... :?: :roll:

Hope to see you soon on net,

Kiss,
Eli

Dear Heldkady,

Welcome here dear,
Reading your posts I feel your warmness and kindness. You seem to be a warm-blooded person. Emmm, you may be a girl!? :lol:

Why don't you write more about yourself to us? About your gender, age, job...
Let us know more about you and don't be worried. Just write and be sure " practice makes perfect".
I learn a lot through reading, try to read more and more. Fortunately,the internet provides us a lot of great sources to read and learn through. :-)

Hope to hear more from you,

Elham

Hi Helkady,

How are you?

Oh come on, why don't we answer you??! Behnam had created this thread just to learn and communicate with others and everybody is welcomed here. You are one of us now!

Thanks for your reply and for all the nice words about me. Thank you too for your wishes. {-:

Yeah, I understand your feeling, my country was great and we were happy. Who knows Syrian people can understand how peaceful they are. But now we are just like you, we just watch what is going on and still can't believe that those horrible things are happening here! :!!: :-( :-(
Whyyyy???!! Do we deserve that???????! Why do we fight and for what?! Killing each other has become our only solution, isn't that silly?!

The big countries are just trying to eat us as if we were like a piece of cake! :-x 8-) :-(

You know, spring is my favorite season, we used to go to the fields since I love seeing the green ground and walk in the nature for hours but this year.. We can't go anywhere and I can't see the blossom trees. Uh ! :-(

Let's stop speaking about that because I was really angry today, so if I started speaking now, I wouldn't end till tomorrow! :-(

So tell me, what is your favorite season and why?

Dear, last time when I wrote my first post to you, I was a little bit tired and sleepy since I wrote it at 3 or 4 AM! :shock: Therefore, I forgot to ask you about your favorite kind of movies and which movie you love the most and you don't get bored of watching it constantly, would you recommend some good movies for me?

Thanks for being here and hope to read more from you.

Best wishes,
Amal

Dangerously Disappointing Exam!

Post by behnam » Sat Mar 09, 2013 1:46 pm

Hi Elham,

Thank you very much for encouraging me. You are very kind. Dear Elham, the exam was horrible. The questions were not standard. All in all, the exam looked dangerously difficult to me. Actually, I did my best, but I am not satisfied with it at all. I couldn't manage the time wisely. I am very sad for spending too much time on solving questions! Time was my biggest enemy. You know, in Physics the questions must be solved. It is not possible to answer to a question without solving it. Well, solving a problem takes a lot of time! I don't know what was wrong with me! I am not satisfied with the exam, although I did my best. I solved the problems which I were able to solve, but I couldn't see all the questions! }: }:

The exam room was terrible. The hanging clock on the wall was slept! It didn't work. An old lady who was responsible for controlling us wasn't wearing watch. They didn't allow us to take mobile phones to the building, so nobody around me was wearing watch! There was no water to drink, but a long line for using toilet, and a very very long line for buying sandwich for lunch! I couldn't find a cup of tea to drink! I was really dying for a cup of tea. }:

The students around me were quite stupid! The boy next me was killing the time, sitting and looking at the questions while I was solving some of them. The boy made me crazy so that after the exam I shouted at him and said angrily, "What are you doing here? You were making me angry by your careless to the exam." He said he just answered to some easy questions!!! I guess he has better chance than me! :lol:

I don't know who sets(makes) those irrelevant silly questions! Well, in every module, there are some basic rules, principles, subjects to cover which are standard in all universities around the world. For example, when it comes to Mechanics, Newton's laws are the foundation of it. It can be said that Mechanics is concerning mostly the Newton's three laws from high school until graduation from university. For example, F=ma is Newton's second law. Students start using this formula at high school by considering some simple forces and one-dimensional accelerators. At university, it is still F=ma, but the forces are more complicated and the accelerators are two or three-dimensional in different cordinates. Therefore, when sitting for an exam about Mechanics, it is normal to see some questions about that important matter. What would happen to someone who was expert at solving the problems which are about his field of study if s/he saw something irrelevant? }:

Oh my God! It makes me mad. Who are those question makers??? Don't they teach Physics? Can they solve those questions themselves? I am absolutely sure that they know nothing! I am one the best students in Iran when it comes to Physics. I know professors and universities. I am not a blind person. I am in a position to judge on this area! I believe there is something wrong!

Undoubtedly, the policy of Measurement Organization of Iran isn't clear. Nobody knows what they are searching for. Do they want to measure the number of things I don't know? Well, there are billion billions things I don't know! Do they search for some careless people who sit and enjoy eating chocolate and cakes in exam time? You know what, hardworking people like me expect themselves to answer some questions. They do it, but in many cases they answer wrongly, because answering to irrelevant questions is like taking risk. You are not one hundred percent sure about the answer. Consequently, you receive negative marks while silly rivals get zero. Zero is larger than a negative number! {-: Imagine a farmer and Physics student sit for PhD exam. I believe, the farmer would have more chance than the student to be accepted, since the farmer knows nothing about Physics, then s/he sits doing nothing confidently, whereas poor students tries hard, makes mistakes, and gets negative! According to the result, the farmer knows Physics! Don't take this as a joke, unbelievably, it happens in our society! }: }:

Anyway, I am not satisfied with the exam, and I am planing for the next year exam! However, I don't know what to do. I don't know whether I study something or try to get the policy or logic of Measurement Organization. Even though I try and get the logic or policy this year, it won't work for the next year since it isn't stable! It changes! How terrible! }: }:

All the best,

hi dear friends,big hugs from Turkey.As I promised this time I will give some informations about my city .It is called Adıyaman where has a gorgeous historical place.
There are big statues in there which are called mount Nemrut.It is called as mount because these statues are built on the mount Nemrut .The mountain lies north of Kahta, near Adıyaman. In 62 BC, King Antiochus I Theos of Commagene built on the mountain top a tomb-sanctuary flanked by huge statues (8–9 m/26–30 ft high) of himself, two lions, two eagles and various Greek, Armenian, and Iranian gods, such as Hercules-Vahagn, Zeus-Aramazd or Oromasdes (associated with the Iranian god Ahura Mazda), Tyche, and Apollo-Mithras. These statues were once seated, with names of each god inscribed on them. The heads of the statues have at some stage been removed from their bodies, and they are now scattered throughout the site.
Above all,the most attractive side of the mount Nemrut is rising of the sun. The rising of the sun is very interesting.After you climb to there wait for rising of the sun .The scene turns to magic! while the sun begin to rise slowly,you feel that you are above the sun. I have had this experience.Really it was fascinating. :!!:
See you next time if you reply my post I will be happy.Hold it in your mind your each response will give me courage to share my experience....
Love you all, best wishes Grincas

Hi Behnam,

The educational system and measuring organization and professors can't measure the intellectuals and talented minds.
Remember that Albert Einstein expelled and refused admittance to Zurich Polytechnic School.
How his teacher described Albert Einstein "mentally slow, unsociable and adrift forever in his foolish dreams." .....the University of Bern turned down his Ph.D. dissertation as being irrelevant and fanciful.
Believe yourself and never give up to be a farmer , plan your exam as a physic student and study as much as you can

Good Luck,
Mohsen

Hi grincas,
I had a virtual tour to the north of Kahta in Adıyaman province and visit the mount Nemrut. My tour was as done via google map and image . I enjoyed visiting this place ,there are several statues heads were on the mountain slop ,the beautiful area and sceneries.
It is near to Iran and one day I will visit there .I hope the statues won't be disappeared since the rain and snow destroy the statues. The appearance of statues show that they are wearing out

Hi friends,

It is less than 11 days to the new year in Iran, at this time of the year people have no time and very body is in hurry,many things should be done , the house should be cleaned before the new year , washing the house and furniture , going to shops and buying new clothes and shoes, the markets are crowded, and shopkeepers are advertising their products ,the tumult of shots and yell could be heard everywhere. It is a good time for selling flowers and plants , All people buy flowers and plant, the fresh smell of gillyflower cover everywhere.The refrigerator and freezers should be filled by meats and food stuff , there is a long row of people who stay in famous confectionery shops.There are special new year mall who sell cheaper fruits and meats, but they sell the fruits in the box ,not less than 10 kgs.
There will be a big holiday ,schools and teachers 15 days off, official employees 5 days and many of them extend it to two weeks .
Many people have a plan to travel by own cars ,also all of tickets are being booked, They check up the car engine before the trip ,so the engine repair shops are very crowded too.
For some people the new year holiday is terrible, people who can't tolerate the commotion of market.
Till now I have been invited for taking part in two parties during the holiday ,these parties certainly will be added and If I want to release from parties ,I should escape to a trip .


all the best,
Mohsen

Hi Mohsen,

Thanks a million for your friendly reply. To be honest Mohsen, it is really annoying as well as shocking( Man vaghean hers mikhoram) to see something different from what it is publicly expected. For example, at a wedding, you expect to see people dancing, eating,etc. showing their happiness. What would happen if you go to a wedding party and saw people are all crying? You might ask for the reason, what would you do if you found out that they are crying for someone who has passed away one year ago? For human beings, crying is a normal way to show sad feelings, but it must be done in proper situations.

In a PhD exam, the students expect to see questions relevant to the subjects which were covered by professors at universities. However, the majority of them were irrelevant.

Anyway, I disliked the format of PhD exam.

All the best,
Behnam, 10 March, 2013

I Love Adiyaman!

Post by behnam » Sun Mar 10, 2013 7:39 am

Hi Grincas,

Many thanks for writing about the city you are living in. Using Google, Adiyaman seems to be a very beautiful city. I love ADIYAMAN. For me, it means a lot. I understand the name: 'Adi' means 'it's name' and 'Yaman' means 'bad', but in some cases it is sued by the opposite meaning. Therefore, I guess it means 'Yaxchi'(good). Sometimes we say, 'Chox Yaman ghizdi'! It means she is positively extraordinary. Therefore, it may mean "the pace where its name is famous for goodness"! Anyway, I love your city and its people. Would you mind giving some explanation about the meaning of "Adiyaman' and tell us why it is named like that?

All the best,
Behnam, 10 March, 2013

Dear Dr.Behnam(In my opinion forever)
When you said “According to the result, the farmer knows Physics! Don't take this as a joke, unbelievably, it happens in our society!” You are exactly right. I always see fatuous people that have postdoctoral! But when they must diagnose a disease, are unable, here is where that differences are obvious and society will reject them immediately!
Your basic problem is just slow in operations!!! YOU are careful , but not fast. {-; You must act quickly like me! :lol:

Dear Behnam,

Oh dear, I do understand your feelings right now. When sth is not what it's expected to be, what it MUST be.... ohhhhhhh.... it makes us very angry. I know what you mean.( Mano dar ehsasetun sharik bedunid) :-(

Seems there's no any other choice but to accept the bitter fact, when we can't do anything about it, although it's very hard to get along with. Please try not to think about it. As Arab people say " favaghaa ma vaghaa!".

You know what I'm thinking about? About loooooooooots of other things that are Just the same in today's world!What percent of things are the way they're supposed to be? Ohhhh, even worse, how many of us people are the way our creator has created us to be? How should he feel then?!!! :-(

You can just do one thing dear, to accept it and its result.... anddd... one other thing.... ohhh, I see professor Behnam who is making questions for PhD exam, and wowwwwww, how wisely he's doing it;he just knows what exactly is meant to be questioned and does his job perfectly cause he's a great Physics man :-D
In the hope of that day, let's accept and forget Friday's terrible exam. :-)

please smile :-)

All the best,

Hi dear Mohsen and Behnam and all, Happy to see your responses, Firstly I want to explain my city' s name,which is Adıyaman
Dear Behnam you made me laugh {-: Adı means name, Yaman means inexorable that s to say Adıyaman =inexorable name :-D
Mohsen if you come to visit here, your friend Grincas ready to welcome you
If you want to watch rising of the sun too, you have to climb there early in the mornings.Also, you have to wear thick clothes ,otherwise you might be cold on the Mount Nemrut .Believe me, even in August...

Hi Grincas,

Thank you very much for following the thread; reading posts and writing regularly.

Your city is beautiful. I love it.I wish I could visit "ADIYAMAN" and have a walk with Grincas in it. I wish I could go climbing in Nemrut Mountain to enjoy its natural beauty as well as the sunrise.

Due to refraction of light in the atmosphere, on high mountains, the sun is seen some minutes earlier. What we see in the morning up mountains is a virtual sun(an image) which is reddish and bigger than the real one in size. We can look at it directly, it won't damage your eyes! Have you ever gone to Nemrut mountain? How much is the distance from Iran? I guess it is so close to Iran.

I hope to read more from you.

All the best,

Hi Helkady,

Thank you for your sympathy. Yes, it doesn't matter. I should forget it and make plan for the future(next exam).

Use an English-To-English dictionary all the time, and read the sample sentences. Pay attention to the patters and structures. By doing so, you will make good progress in writing. Never translate your Arabic sentences(dialogs) into English. In many cases, word-for-word translation doesn't work.

I've got two Yahoo active accounts: behrampednam@yahoo.com and yourbehnam@yahoo.com The first one is used for sending and receiving emails. The second one is used for chatting. In the past, I had different chatting account. I forgot its password, so I had to create another one.

For chatting or sharing file, you can add my accounts into your contact list.

All the best,

Dear Behnam,

How are you my friend? I hope you are fine. How are your children? How old are they now? (I'm sorry, I don't remember when they were born!) How is the life after having babies?

I should say that I am very grateful for having a good wife and two children. Some of my friends are not married yet; I strongly recommend them to marry as soon as possible! Some of my friends and colleagues are married but don't have any child yet; I strongly recommend them to plan for having a child! And some of my friends do have a child; I strongly recommend them to plan for another!

Sometime, I ask my wife's opinion about a third child! She simply says that she is too tired to give birth to another child and take care of it! She is right; living in a small city far from your relatives and taking care of two little children is exhausting, isn't it?

My aim for writing this post is not to talk about having or not having children! I read your recent posts and learned that you are not satisfy with your PhD exam. I want to talk a little about this topic.

In my opinion, that the government (ministry of science,...) is the one in charge for executing the PhD exam is wrong. The government may fail to get a professional team of university professors for designing the exam. As a result, as you already said, the exam they design may not seem standard!

Moreover, the PhD exam should not be 4Gozine-yee only [I'm sorry, I don't know the English term]. The PhD exam must contain descriptive [Tashrihee] problems also. In Mathematics or Physics, when you solve a problem [or answer a question], even partially, the examiner should realize how you think and manage the problem. It is important also that the examiner see the way you write down the answer explicitly. Considering all these factors together, the examiner can come to a conclusion about your score in the exam.

When I took the exam, in 1381, each university had its own PhD exam. In that time, there was not a certain date for the exam. For example, the exam for Tehran university was in 20th Esfand while the exam for Kerman university was in 10th Ordybehesht next year!! All exams contained descriptive questions only [at least for Mathematics]. There were many advantageous and disadvantageous over this kind of exams. One of its disadvantageous was that there was no a consistency in the level of the exams in different universities. Each university emphasized on a particular subject. To become successful in passing the PhD exam in a certain university, you should have known which textbooks they had studied in their classes etc.

Let me finish here. I am looking forward to hear from you soon.

Best regards,
Mortaza

Hi Moroo speaking

Post by Moroo » Thu Mar 14, 2013 7:40 am

Ohh Hi my friends

I miss you, I read some of your past posts ,I feel I know many of you for a long time and this is strange for me.

Writing takes me a long time ,first to choose the words then to check the grammar and then to check what word is appropriate.

I don’t know is it ok or not .

Anyway, I’m male ,43 years old ,I love English movies so much , but I don’t have free time to watch , because I’m the kind of men who take care of his family , share with his wife everything , I think the man who have that personality called “Family Man”.

Oooh this name reminds me about the movie that make me married my wife, It’s a long story but I will try to tell you.

For all my life I don’t like the idea of marriage, ten years ago I met my wife for the first time ,what attracted me most to her was her beauty and intelligence, we started the relation as a friends day by day I felt that I love her :-P but I didn’t tell her because I was not thinking of marriage although I’m sure I will not find a girl can understand me like her ,we love the same things , we hate the same things .

during this period many men proposed to her but she was always refused , finally I told her you should marry the best proposal ,I astonished when she asked me “what about you" ?

I told her you know I’m not thinking of marriage at all, so please go ahead; you are wasting your time with me .

Finally she gets engaged :cry:

I found myself lost without her and depressed and I realized that I’m nothing without her but I didn’t call her .

One day, accidently I saw a movie called “The Family Man” for “Nicolas Cage” ,this movie is about a very rich man how have everything but he is not married and he is very happy person ,till he met a man who has a kind of power .

by some kind of magic he turned “cage” to a married man who has some money and beautiful wife and two babes :-D

I’ll not tell you the rest of the movie you have to watch it by yourself, but this movie makes me marry my wife ,this movie turned my life upside down {-:

Now thanks God I’m really happy :-D with my beautiful wife and my beautiful babes .

Please I’m waiting for your comments :roll:

Dear Behnam ,Can you please send me 'Grammar in use', and 'Collocations in use' in PDF :oops:

Thank you in advance for your cooperation ;-) ;-) ;-)

Hi Mortaza,

Welcome back to your own home! Thank you very much for your friendly post. It really made me happy.

Oh my God! A lot of recommendations for different people! Thank you very much indeed.

I do agree with you about PhD exam. It must be descriptive. Well, there are some advantages and disadvantages. Descriptive testing method has some advantages for talented students, but correcting is difficult for authorities. I personally prefer descriptive testing method to others.

I am waiting for the result. I am not disappointed at all.The exam was terrible. I don't say it was difficult, it was terrible. Not standard. If I had time I could solve all the questions. Therefore, it wasn't difficult for me. However, I couldn't manage the time. I was busy with solving questions, without wasting the time, but I couldn't even see some questions. I lost the questions of one module(subject) completely! }: }: }: How terrible!

I hope to hear more from you.

All the best,
Behnam, 15 March, 2013

I just know that my daughter has Chickenpox and she cannot go to school for two weeks, the problem is she has exams next week as well she is not allowed to live the house for two weeks, we are afraid his brother get infected.
Anyway we hope she will get well soon .

Hi Moroo,

I hope you are fine and doing well , I am sorry for you child ,but be pateint and care the child ,the health will be recovered very soon ,I hope. there are some advices I read it which help you to avoid Chickenpox.How to Avoid Getting Chicken Pox While Helping an Infected Person
1- Avoid touching any of the pox marks until they are crusted over. Until they crust over, they continue to shed the virus.

2-Avoid intimate contact such as kissing. The virus is also shed via the respiratory system.
3-Keep the infected person's eating utensils and drinking glass separate.
4-Turn your head if he or she coughs or sneezes.
5-Practice good hand washing. Wash your hands every time you handle any of the sick person's things.
6- Use an air purifier, which helps filter bacteria and viruses out of the air.
7- Wash bed linens and recently worn clothes in hot, soapy water.
8- Keep yourself healthy. Get sufficient sleep. Eat nutritious food. Take a high-potency multivitamin.

Incomplete Story!

Post by behnam » Tue Mar 19, 2013 5:37 am

Hi Moroo,

Thank you for joining us and posting nice posts. I read your love story carefully, but I could not keep track of it! Some important part of the story is unclear! I am happy that you have a beautiful wife and two beautiful children. I also enjoyed reading your love story, but you have not said how could you marry to an engaged girl? Did you want her to get divorced? How could you convince her fiance to agree with divorce?

Unwillingly, you have fallen into a trap! Give me some criteria for measuring the beauty of a lady! Well, you have done it perfectly, since you have chosen a beautiful lady to marry to, as you have said! {-: {-: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh my God! Behnam, stop playing joke on an Arab man, he may draw his sword and kill you! :lol: :lol: {-: {-: {-:

All the best,

Hi my friend Mohsen

Thanks a lot for your interest {-: I printed out your advice and I gave it to my wife to follow it.
Although she took the vaccine two times, she get slight infected.

She is sad :cry: because we told her she can't go out to prevent anyone to get infected and also we will separated her from the 9 months baby.
It's hard for her because she loves him so much , We told her that this procedure will be for two weeks only.

Anyway thanks God this will last only for two weeks.

Thank you again

Hi Moroo,
I think all children are affected by Chicken pox ,and they can bear it easier than older. It is like another disease called jaundice . Many children are infected by jaundice at the first days of life and most parents fear to see that their child got jaundice .
I went to my brother 'house last week to visit his new born baby , his child was in special glass chamber to be exposed by florescent light for three days.
I told my brother's wife not to be worry , this is not a dangerous , she will be recovered very soon .
This is a fact that the human worries are endless unless when he entrusts all of unwanted events to God.
I prepared a piece of gold and a bunch of flowers as a gift to the baby ,and my wife offered them to the babies'mother.
What is the custom in your country for visiting a new born baby?

Hi my friend Behnam

Thank you so much for asking about my daughter, en shaa allah she will be fine :-D

In respect of my story , Ooooooh don't get me wrong. She didn't get formal engagement, she only saw this person for not more than two weeks, and even he doesn't saw her father. And do you know after we get married she told me that she wasn't attracted to him, but she did that to make me feel how important is she :evil:

Hope now it's clear for all :?:

In respect of my criteria of measuring the beauty, in my opinion the inside beauty is much more important than the outside beauty. I described my wife as beautiful for the following reasons : First: she loves me so much. Second :She knows about me more than me even if I make tea I asked her how much sugar that I need :lol:

Third :??????????? :~:

Wish you all the happiness and love.

More Explanation Please!

Post by behnam » Wed Mar 20, 2013 5:37 pm

Hi Moroo,

Thank you for your kind reply. Storynory is a site that provides stories for children. You can download the audio files as well as the scripts. Go to Google and write 'Storynory+story' in the searching box. You will find it useful. I hope so.

Dear Moroo, you are still in the trap! What do you mean by 'inside and outside' beauty'? How do you know that your wife loves you so much? This can be an extremely important question, since its answer provides men with some handy criteria for measuring wives' love for their husbands. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Finally, you haven't made the third reason clear! What's that? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hope to hear from you soon.

All the best,
Behnam, 20 March, 2013

Ways to Improve your Body Languag(Part one)

Post by behnam » Wed Mar 20, 2013 6:03 pm

A friend has emailed me the following text. It can be useful in terms of English practising and knowledge gaining.

*********************
Improving your body language can make a big difference in your people skills, attractiveness and general mood.

There is no specific advice on how to use your body language. What you do might be interpreted in several ways, depending on the setting and who you are talking to. You'll probably want to use your body language differently when talking to your boss compared to when you talk to a girl/guy you're interested in. These are some common interpretations of body language and often more effective ways to communicate with your body.

First, to change your body language you must be aware of your body language. Notice how you sit, how you stand, how you use you hands and legs, what you do while talking to someone.

You might want to practice in front of a mirror. Yeah, it might seem silly but no one is watching you. This will give you good feedback on how you look to other people and give you an opportunity to practise a bit before going out into the world.

Another tip is to close your eyes and visualize how you would stand and sit to feel confident, open and relaxed or whatever you want to communicate. See yourself move like that version of yourself. Then try it out.

You might also want observe friends, role models, movie stars or other people you think has good body language. Observe what they do and you don't. Take bits and pieces you like from different people. Try using what you can learn from them.

Some of these tips might seem like you are faking something. But fake it til you make it is a useful way to learn something new. And remember, feelings work backwards too. If you smile a bit more you will feel happier. If you sit up straight you will feel more energetic and in control. If you slow down your movements you'll feel calmer. Your feelings will actually reinforce your new behaviours and feelings of weirdness will dissipate.

In the beginning easy it's to exaggerate your body language. You might sit with your legs almost ridiculously far apart or sit up straight in a tense pose all the time. That's ok. And people aren't looking as much as you think, they are worrying about their own problems. Just play around a bit, practice and monitor yourself to find a comfortable balance.

1. Don't cross your arms or legs – You have probably already heard you shouldn't cross your arms as it might make you seem defensive or guarded. This goes for your legs too. Keep your arms and legs open.

2. Have eye contact, but don't stare – If there are several people you are talking to, give them all some eye contact to create a better connection and see if they are listening. Keeping too much eye-contact might creep people out. Giving no eye-contact might make you seem insecure. If you are not used to keeping eye-contact it might feel a little hard or scary in the beginning but keep working on it and you'll get used to it.

3. Don't be afraid to take up some space – Taking up space by for example sitting or standing with your legs apart a bit signals self-confidence and that you are comfortable in your own skin.

4. Relax your shoulders – When you feel tense it's easily winds up as tension in your shoulders. They might move up and forward a bit. Try to relax. Try to loosen up by shaking the shoulders a bit and move them back slightly.

5. Nod when they are talking – nod once in a while to signal that you are listening. But don't overdo it and peck like Woody Woodpecker.

6. Don't slouch, sit up straight – but in a relaxed way, not in a too tense manner.

7. Lean, but not too much – If you want to show that you are interested in what someone is saying, lean toward the person talking. If you want to show that you're confident in yourself and relaxed lean back a bit. But don't lean in too much or you might seem needy and desperate for some approval. Or lean back too much or you might seem arrogant and distant.

8. Smile and laugh – lighten up, don't take yourself too seriously. Relax a bit, smile and laugh when someone says something funny. People will be a lot more inclined to listen to you if you seem to be a positive person. But don't be the first to laugh at your own jokes, it makes you seem nervous and needy. Smile when you are introduced to someone but don't keep a smile plastered on your face, you'll seem insincere.

9. Don't touch your face – it might make you seem nervous and can be distracting for the listeners or the people in the conversation.

10. Keep you head up – Don't keep your eyes on the ground, it might make you seem insecure and a bit lost. Keep your head up straight and your eyes towards the horizon.

Ways to Improve your Body Languag(Part Two))

Post by behnam » Wed Mar 20, 2013 6:05 pm

..............
11. Slow down a bit – this goes for many things. Walking slower not only makes you seem more calm and confident, it will also make you feel less stressed. If someone addresses you, don't snap you're neck in their direction, turn it a bit more slowly instead.

12. Don't fidget – try to avoid, phase out or transform fidgety movement and nervous ticks such as shaking your leg or tapping your fingers against the table rapidly. You'll seem nervous and fidgeting can be a distracting when you try to get something across. Declutter your movements if you are all over the place. Try to relax, slow down and focus your movements.

13. Use your hands more confidently – instead of fidgeting with your hands and scratching your face use them to communicate what you are trying to say. Use your hands to describe something or to add weight to a point you are trying to make. But don't use them to much or it might become distracting. And don't let your hands flail around, use them with some control.

14. Lower your drink – don't hold your drink in front of your chest. In fact, don't hold anything in front of your heart as it will make you seem guarded and distant. Lower it and hold it beside your leg instead.

15. Realise where you spine ends – many people (including me until recently) might sit or stand with a straight back in a good posture. However, they might think that the spine ends where the neck begins and therefore crane the neck forward in a Montgomery Burns-pose. Your spine ends in the back of your head. Keep you whole spine straight and aligned for better posture.

16. Don't stand too close –one of the things we learned from Seinfeld is that everybody gets weirded out by a close-talker. Let people have their personal space, don't invade it.

17. Mirror – Often when you get along with a person, when the two of you get a good connection, you will start to mirror each other unconsciously. That means that you mirror the other person's body language a bit. To make the connection better you can try a bit of proactive mirroring. If he leans forward, you might lean forward. If he puts hands in pocket, you might do the same. But don't react instantly and don't mirror every change in body language. Then weirdness will ensue.

18. Keep a good attitude – last but not least, keep a positive, open and relaxed attitude. How you feel will come through in your body language and can make a major difference. For information on how make yourself feel better read 10 ways to change how you feel and for relaxation try A very simple way to feel relaxed for 24 hours.

You can change your body language but as all new habits it takes a while. Especially things like keeping you head up might take time to correct if you have spent thousands of days looking at your feet. And if you try and change to many things at once it might become confusing and feel overwhelming.

Take a couple of these body language bits to work on every day for three to four weeks. By then they should have developed into new habits and something you'll do without even thinking about it. If not, keep on until it sticks. Then take another couple of things you'd like to change and work on them.

Big Hello to My Dear Friends

Post by Kamelia » Wed Mar 20, 2013 9:07 pm

Hello there,

I don't want to preach that the new spring and Noruz will erase all the mistakes we made, all the wrong ways we took, all the lies we told, all our wrong deeds

But that,

It will teach us that we human beings are made to make mistakes but learn from them, reform, be better, make new pure souls out of the ashes we spread, and finally rebirth!


Happy New Year to my Iranian friends, and happy one more new spring to all our friends here. I will you all the happiest, healthiest and safest life wherever you are :-)

Hi to all..

1- Happy new Iranian year to you Behnam and Elham.
2- Happy mother day to all yours mothers my friends.
3- Happy teacher day to you my dear brother Behman and for me as a teacher too.
4- Dear Behman, you asked me why i didn't wrote anything in the thread in the last weeks...
My dear I feel lonely here. First of all because who has invited me to be here are now... you know what I mean, and second of all because I was waiting for reply from all to my posts but unfortunately there was no one here except a few shy replies I appreciated.
Dear brother I tried to be one of you and precisely you, Elham and Amal but it seems to be I failed.
So I'm here and not here. Thanks for your inquiry my dear.

Have nice days to all.

Dear Wilzin,

Come onnnn, I didn't like some of your unkind words in your post! You are alone? You don't get enough replies? ..... so you don't tend to write? ohhhhh, I don't understand

Emmm, I think you're upset with just one person but you are punishing all! Your words are not accepted! Actually, I'm angry with your words and you have to do sth and pure some water on the fire! :lol:

YES....

Hi Wilzin,

Many thanks for your friendly words. You are a kind person. From the time you have entered this thread, you are in our thoughts. Nothing can take you from our thoughts. You are also in my heart. I cannot judge about others' hearts, but I can safely say that you are in my heart. :lol: :lol:

As a piece of brotherly advice, you should know, ladies are like butterfly. If you try to take them, they will fly away. Just be silent and moveless, they will come and sit on your shoulders! :lol: :lol:

I want you to manage your feelings. Try to understand the limitations which the culture, the family, and the religion impose on our relationships!

As my lovely and kind friend Elham the great has asked, pour some water into the fire you have lit. Oh my God! I love this sentence very much, since I love lighting fire and pouring water into it. This is exactly what a wise man must do! Believe me, I am really laughing out loud! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh, Behnam, that's enough, you are in a naughty mood! :lol: :lol: :lol:

All the best,
Behnam, 22 March, 2013

Happy Mother's Day!

Post by behnam » Fri Mar 22, 2013 6:22 am

Dear Friends,

I'd like to say 'Happy Mother's Day' to all mothers and potential mothers!

In Iran, 21st March isn't Mother's Day. Well, we are Iranian and we dislike to follow others. :lol: :lol: :lol:

In Iran, Mother's Day is the birthday of 'Fatemeh' the only daughter of prophet Mohammad(PBUH).

21st March cannot be a special day for all people in the world. It can be a special day for some nations, but surely it isn't a special day for all. Therefore, it is not normal to follow others blindly. I don't mean that other countries should follow us! No, never! For Iranian, Mother's Day is connected to their religious belief. What I am saying is being independent! I believe, every region should have its Mother's Day, since this day should be the symbol of motherhood! This day should be used as the valuation, the benchmark, and the criteria of judgement on ideal mothers in a society!

For us, as Shiite group, 'Fatemeh'; the only daughter of Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) is considered as the ideal mother(woman). She is the benchmark, the valuation, the symbol, the criterion, and the scale! Now, you can judge yourself, how wise and independent Iranian people are. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Our Mother's Day introduces a belief, an ideology, a strategy, a great philosophy. What does 21st March say? I may not know, you let me know! I would appreciate if you could let me know what has made the 21st March a special day for the entire world?

All the best,
Behnam, 22 March, 2013
