EnGlIsHlAnD.

Post by Taravat » Fri Jun 28, 2019 7:05 am

Hello everybody,

I’m an all-time English lover and learner, and this forum is gonna be a togetherness for everybody who likes writing in EN. No matter how old you are, what your EN level is, and if you are a student or teacher, I’m honored to give you a warm welcome here.

Image

Just recalled a poem in Persian:

هرکه خواهد گو بیا و هرچه خواهد گو بگو ... کبر و ناز و حاجب و دربان بدین درگاه نیست


Well…To get started, I’d like to write about my intentions to create such a forum… Here my intentions go:

1st, a friend of mine—I owe her BIG time- asked me to keep her son interested in EN. Hope he will join us and benefit from this place.

2nd, writing has always been my cup of tea.

3rd, every attempt will be paid someday. As the proverb says: “We reap what we saw”.
...
...
...
100th, learning never ends. We learn in groups and from our mistakes much better.

OK…Are you convinced with my reasoning? {-;

So, never feel shy or whatever to write here. Hurry up. Put your fingers on the keyboard, write something, and let’s take a look at our worlds.

Cheers,
Taravat

P.S. In your first blog, you can introduce yourself and let us know you.
P.P.S. I would like to call this forum "Englishland".

My correction: "SOW"!

Post by Taravat » Sun Jun 30, 2019 2:22 pm

Hi buddies,

My first correction: We reap what we SOW --not SAW.
Sow is a verb, meaning "to plant seeds on a ground".
I'm certain you know 'saw". So I don't go to the trouble to explain it.
Look...As I said earlier, We learn from our mistakes. In my case, it was a typo. A typo is a misspelled error when you know the correct spell of the word but type it by mistake.

Please check out your dictionary and read more about the verb "sow". My favorite dictionary is Tahlilgaran. Though, please dont get tempted to read only Persian meanings.

Thanks for reading.
Bests, Taravat

One more error!!

Post by Taravat » Sun Jun 30, 2019 3:15 pm

I'm back to make a confession. I made one more error in the former blog. :oops: Lets see if you can find it. :?: :idea:
I give you a clue...It's a punctuation error; not a BIG one. It's worth mentioning though. We are here to learn from our mistakes, huh?

Will wait for your reply.

Well...To tell the truth, I made this capitalization on purpose to put emphasis on the word "time". I'm afraid, you should take your turn once more and give it one more try.

By the way, sorry for writing in Persian and making you confused. The poem in Persians says that "Feel free to join us. We have no restrictions here."

The punctuation problem is that you have unbalanced parenthesis

long dash and hyphen

Persian is a very old language, right?

Much older than English I assume.

(But be careful of assume. It makes an ass of u and me.)

Yes...Not only an old language, but also rich in meaning and courtesy. To give you an idea, we seldom use slangs in our written or spoken language. Though You taught me a new idiom tonight!

:ok: To make an ass of yourself = to behave stupidly and look silly.

OK...It's bedtime, huh?
Sweet dreams!

My punctuation error!

Post by Taravat » Tue Jul 02, 2019 2:07 pm

Hi Joe,
You've been quiet. How's everything?

Well...It's time to reveal my punctuation error.


:nok: As I said earlier, We learn from our mistakes.

I shouldn't have used capitalized word after the comma mark.
I'm too particular and picky, right? it's due to the fact that I've been a scientific writer. Scientific writers must be particular about grammar, punctuation, dictation, whatnot in their formal and professional works.
You can still find some other errors in my texts, I believe. Wanna give it a shot?

I'll await your reply.

What’s the occasion today?!?

Post by Taravat » Thu Jul 04, 2019 2:43 am


Today is the Girl’s Day in our Persian calendar. We celebrate this day on the occasion of Hazrat Maasoumeh's birthday (PBUH).
Happy Girl’s Day to all earthly angels. Life would be dull and boring without girls, right?


Image


This occasion should be taken as an opportunity to make girls understand their crucial role and position in families and societies. Girls should be cherished, adored, and valued. We should keep in mind that today’s girls will make future mums. Families should instill acceptance, power, and love into the girls so that they will make strong mums in the future, and thereby create happy and healthy families and generations. So, remember to congratulate every girl around you on this occasion, and make them feel valued.



One more thing… Our government complains about high rates of plastic surgeries and cosmetic product imports, and states these numbers are higher than global norm. What's wrong?
I suspect something is wrong with minds not looks! Our parents bought us dolls and furniture toys when we were small kids, What do we buy for our baby gals?

Image

I believe we are raising walking painted and decorated dolls than girls. We are conveying this message to new generation unknowingly to be dependent on artificial beauties in order to feel secure about themselves. This way, they get obsessed with their look, forgetting the importance of true values such as morality, modesty, self-improvement, etc.
Kids should learn that they are beautiful even without heavy makeups. They should bear in mind that there is beauty in simplicity.
I'm concerned about our future kids. How about you?

Are you a teacher in real world?
Also, did you delete one of my posts? If not, I start to believe we have a wandering ghost here! Jesus!!! O:

WELCOME Mosunovpa!

Post by Taravat » Fri Jul 05, 2019 5:39 am

Hi Mosunovpa- what a difficult-to-pronounce name!
WELCOME... You like English too? So, we have something in common. You makes mistakes? Its another commonality we have. In fact, everyone makes mistakes. Humans are fallible and errors are inevitable.

You are from Russia! Cool... lets see how much i know about your country.

Russia is a laaaaarge country round the globe. The Capital city of Russia is Moscow which is the largest city. Another large city is Saint Petersburg...Hmmm... Your religion is Christianity. You dont speak in EN and have your own language-dunno its name.

Your president is Vladimir Putine-a serious-looking man.

Russia has extremely cold winters, and gorgeous ladies. Dunno how far its true. Could be Iranians like blonde and fair-skinned women.

Last but not the least, Russians have long and difficult names.
Ok...Are these pieces of information about your great country satisfactory given that Ive always been terrible at Geography?

P.S. How on earth do you spell two consonants next to each other ?! :roll:

Russia is the largest country in the world. And there are a lot of warm places without snow during a year. In Novosibirs we have about 6 snow months. We go skiing and ice skating -)
Our women are beautiful -) slender white-skinned with light brown hair!
We have three names: first, second and last, it is not very long i think )
We speak Russian. It is not very simple language but we love it ) Below small example:
Привет! Как дела! Рад знакомству! - Hi! How are you! Nice to meet you!

Places filled with true peace.

Post by Taravat » Sat Jul 06, 2019 3:57 pm

I visited a holy shrine last night and I felt like writing a post in this regard.

We are told that mosques and holy shrines are built for us to worship Allah there. I believe it doesn’t end right there. These places are there to reunite us with our lost inner peace, and on top of that, to connect us to the superpower “Allah”. Allah doesn’t need our worship but we need Him in every aspect of our lives.

I haven’t visited temples, churches, and mosques in any other country, but I believe our mosques are quite unique. You might ask unique in what terms?

Well…You just need to visit Islamic mosques to truly understand my claim. The marvelous and extraordinary architectures of our mosques are meant to create a spiritual atmosphere that uplifts souls and spirits. Great mixture of soothing colors of small tiles that are placed next to another tactfully, the composition of small pieces of mirrors, and the reflection of light in these pieces of mirrors add to the peace and tranquility of such places. When you visit these places, you feel you are embraced with tranquility and you don’t want to quit.

Islamic mosques are great symbols of our extraordinary architecture built by our expert architects whom they should be bragged and showed off. We should visit these places oftentimes to find ourselves there.

Busy Bee.

Post by Taravat » Fri Jul 12, 2019 6:03 am

Hi friends,
I've been a Busy Bee over last few days and couldn't be active here.


Image

Hopefully, it's Friday and I can write something here.
Happy Friday!
What do you do on the weekend?
I personally oversleep. The only days I can sleep longer are on Fridays. Sleep is sweet, isn't it?
I do a major housecleaning on Fridays, go shopping-some shops are closed on weekends and it sucks-, do some reading, and go out sometimes. Sometimes I cook a delicious meal too!

I'll take some rest and write as soon as I possibly can.

Enjoy your weekend fully.

What goes around comes around!

Hi friends

What a lonely existence! Anyhow, I would like to say a warm HELLO to whom they are reading me in silence! It's a great pleasure to be read by YOU!

You know, I used to write more often before. By before I mean a few years ago. These days I write quite often but not as often as I used to do. Anyhow, better late than never. Agree?

Ok...Tonight, I feel like writing a bit about this idiom.


Image

What a profound idiom, right?
It refers to some similar concepts like "The cause-and-effect rule", "Karma", etc. Ever heard of or thought about these concepts?
These all say that every single act we do can potentially affect our world in one way or another. We play a significant role in the destiny of ours and even our generations'.

Those who are looking for self-improvement understand this rule pretty well and try to recheck their thoughts, acts, interactions oftentimes. They analyze everything in their mind, criticizing or encouraging themselves constantly. I don't mean that we become obsessed with self-criticism. We can keep self-encouragement and self-criticism balanced to achieve self-improvement.

This way, we will be more cautious about our daily interactions with people around us as well. We are social creatures and are living in groups. Our acts affect the people we are dealing with and vice versa. Interactions are so important and complex. Some actions can leave unforgettable impressions on people ranging from positive (e.g., kindness, benevolence, generosity, affection, care) to negative (e.g., hatred, anger, wrath, jealousy, etc).

TOO sophisticated?! :roll: It's typical of me to make the simplest things too complex! I might explain later.
Gotta dash...Thanks for reading. Nite nite!

P.S. The Persian equivalence of above-mentioned idiom is this:
این جهان کوه است و فعل ما ندا/سوی ما آید نداها را صدا
"حضرت مولانا"

An eye-opener!

Post by Taravat » Fri Jul 19, 2019 7:11 pm

Hi
I was too busy today. Hopefully, I could manage to write a post here after all. Its bedtime. So i will make the long story short.
Its just been a few months since I quit my former workplace and got another job. What I like most about my new job is getting to know new individuals. Some of them are of elite group- I mean intellectually. I really enjoy interacting with people who have great things to offer.
I met somebody last week and she gave me a great book. It was a real eye opener for me.
Since this place isn't a Persian friendly webpage, I surfed the net and found the book in English.
By reading E-books or listening to audio books in English, we -English learners- kill two birds with one stone. Right?
The book is '' The dark side of the light chasers'', by Debbie Ford. It instructs us to take a deeper and different look at the inner aspects of our personalities. The link to its ebook is right below:

Hope you will find the book beneficiary.
Nite

Writing!

Post by Taravat » Tue Jul 23, 2019 4:41 pm

HeLlOoOoooOOo

I took a day off today to stay at home and have some rest. I ended up going out to run some errands. Though, I'm happy I could finish the jobs that I was putting off until tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, so on and so forth. Anyhow...Now, I can have a pit stop here and write a blog. In tonight's blog, I'd like to write about the benefits of writing.


Image

As I mentioned earlier, writing has always been my favorite hobby. When I write, I'm able to manage my thought patterns. Generally, I contemplate too much and my mind is kind of a mess. By writing, I can tidy up my messy mind and stop ruminating. In other words, It's me who manages her thoughts, and not the reverse.

Also, I like being productive. Productivity brings us happiness. How? It's a good thing to be heard or read by others. right? We are social creatures and we like socializing with others. Writing is an excellent way to communicate with people, to share our ideas and thoughts, to leave impressions, to touch somebody's heart, to bring someone's face a smile, and so on. Writing can connect us to people whom we have never met or seen in the present or even too far in the future. Writing can connect souls and brings individuals together.

Last but not least, I have learned and still am learning a lot out of writing. By writing in English, I could boost my skills in English. It increases my vocabulary and helps me to master confusing English grammar. On top of that, I can make use of my English skills, and as a result, become confident and proficient.

Thanks for reading.
