When refused by girls, is it necessary to stick to? How to conquer shyness to court? Just leave some tips will be OK. Tahnks indeed!!!

No language now is protected from the effects of other languages ..Now the world is getting smaller by the minute ..Satelites are breaking boarders..The internet is penetrating walls..No one is left alone ..Distances don't matter any more..Even big manufacturers are spreading themselves across so many lands promoting product names like Lexus , Airbus , and Viagra into other languages. Lets look at India and China for example ; How many languages were there 50 years ago and how many are there now !! So , If you may tell us how many foreign words have entered your native language in the last fifty years ?? And what is their approximate percentage of the entire language ?? Another thing ; There is an existing theory that suggests the eventual unity of languages .. ( all languages will become one language at the end ).. If that is what is going to happen , then which language will have the greatest influence on the currently evolving universal language !! Do you think that we may live to see the day when most people in earth are listening to the same music , enjoying the same entertainment , admiring the same heros , and speaking the same language !!!

I was reading on some forum where someone, perhaps an admin, that it's a privately owned domain, i.e. website, and we, the staff, have right to censor whatever we dislike. The person went on to make an interesting anaogy that you have no right to insult me or say things where I don't like in my home. Is it really true? Most of the forums are privately owned by someone and so are the blogs. I would agree that no one has any right to make hate speech, inflamatory remarks, racial slurs, etc. But suppose the owner is a theist, then does it mean an atheists coming to the forums have no right to express his views or negate the views of theists? What is your take on this? Please let me know it. Thanks.

I am a student at the University of Strathclyde in the UK and require assistance on some research for my final year dissertation project. The subject is foreign supermarket retailers in China and the survey should take only 5 minutes. I have a very short time to collect responses for this research so any help would be appreciated, and if you have any friends, family or contacts who are in a position to help it would be very helpful if you would pass it on. If you have any other questions or opinions feel free to contact me. The link to the survey is: [survey closed] Thanks in advance, Gavin

VALUE OF MOTHER After having reached at the peak of his career a man felt an urge to repay* *back to his mother for all that she had done for him.* *So he asked her, "Mother, what can I give you? What can I do for you? I* *sincerely want to repay you for all the sacrifices you have made for me* *and for all the love you have showered upon me."* *Mother looked surprised and said, "Why do you think about it. It was my* *duty so I did it, you don't have to repay me. Even if you want to, there* *is no way a man can ever repay his mother."* Despite her continuous refusal to ask for anything, he continued to *Persist. To put an end to the discussion, she said, "All right. If you* *must, then tonight you sleep on my bed, with me, just as you used to when* *you were a baby." He said, "That's a strange thing to ask for, but if it* *pleases you, I will."* As soon as he fell asleep, the mother got up and brought a bucket of *water. She poured a mug full of water on his side. Feeling disturbed by* *the wetness under him, in his sleep he moved away to the other side of the* *bed. As he settled down, his mother poured another mug of water on the other side. In his slumber he tried to find space towards the foot post of* *the bed. Sometime later he woke up feeling that this part of the bed too* *was damp. * He got up and saw his mother, with the mug in her hand. He asked *angrily, "What are you doing mother? Why don't you let me sleep? How do* *you expect me to sleep on a wet bed?"* *Mother said, "I slept with you, when you wetted the bed in the night. I* *changed your nappy (diaper made of cotton cloth, used in India ) and moved* *you to the dry part of the bed, while I slept on the wet side. * You wanted *to repay me. Can you sleep here even for one night with me on a damp bed?* *If you can, I'll take it that you have repaid me."* *Dear children, How true it is that of all the debts in the world, the one* *that can never be repaid is the one you owe to your mother. * You can never *repay the love, care and time your mother gave to bring you up. You are a* *part of her flesh and blood; don't forget this, because she never ever* *forgets it.* *I know you are missing your mother at this very moment....* ** *There is nothing as beautiful as our mother in this world.* We have enjoined on man kindness to parents... Noble Qur'an (29:8) May Allah (SWT) Almighty enable us to be of service and comfort to both our parents when we can and may He grant us sabr to serve them during their old age, ameen....

Hi everybody, Let's share our views regarding the hot outsourcing controversy that have started to gain momentum in the present IT boom world. To start with, Americans have started to protest against outsourcing to India, as they think that indians have taken their jobs, and thereby leaving americans unemployed. But as an Indian, i have to share some key important points.I'am sure that all will agree that we indians are technically sound.And we are good in english.By Outsourcing, a company can gain more profit.So, when outsourcing adds to US economy, Why the americans are against it? Do americans have only software knowledge?When their economy gets added up, they can invest the money in developing new centres and improving their infrastructure and finally, they can employ even larger number of employees. By outsourcing, they are able to help other countries too. So, with these few points, i think that we can have a better debate and I'am sure that we get good reponse from americans. bye, praveen.

In my view the best way to learn English idioms (fixed expressions) is by topics with explanations of meaning, examples of usage and subsequent exercises. Practising idioms can be done through exercises in listening comprehension, speaking, reading and writing. I suggest the following sequence of learning English idioms (5-10 idioms per lesson): 1. Read clear precise meanings of idioms with usage examples in several realistic sentences in a good thematic dictionary of English idioms. 2. Make your own sentences for using idioms in real life situations. 3. Do ready-made exercises from text books in idioms practice. Exercises in idioms practice can include dialogues, narrations (telling stories), thematic texts, questions and answers with idioms in various situations, discussions, talking points and expressing opinions and views on real life topics and issues). The most comprehensive aids for learning English idioms are dictionaries of English idioms that contain thematic arrangement of idioms. Below is the list of the most important dictionaries of English idioms: 1. Longman Idioms Dictionary (over 6,000 idioms; choose the right idiom with the unique Idiom Activator). 2. Longman American Idioms Dictionary (over 4,000 idioms). 3. Cambridge International Dictionary of Idioms (7,000 idioms ; with 15 topic classification of idioms). 4. Collins Cobuild Dictionary of Idioms (6,000 idiom expressions, has a thematic index of idioms) 5. Oxford Dictionary of Idioms (over 5,000 idioms, with a thematic index of idioms). 6. Oxford Dictionary of English Idioms (volumes 1, 2). 7. Oxford Idioms Dictionary for Learners of English (10,000 idioms). 8. NTC's Dictionary of Everyday American English Expressions (over 7,000 expressions presented according to topic and situation). 9. NTC's Thematic Dictionary of American Idioms (900 thematic headings).

Of course everyday long-term talking to native English speakers on a multitude of topics is a top priority and a paramount factor for developing good English speaking skills by learners of English. However, in addition to this, self-study and practising English on one's own are indispensable, and substantially accelerate success in English. Communication with native English speakers can't encompass all aspects of mastering English adequately and thoroughly, especially vocabulary, grammar, potential in-depth content of conversations suitable for real life needs of students for using English. It's possible and effective to practice English (including listening comprehension and speaking) on one's own through self-control using transcripts, books, audio and video aids. My articles on English learning methods are applicable to self-study and self-practice as well. My question for a poll is: What are the best ways and aids for practising English on one's own using self-control?
