You may all have heard the Oedipus complex. As a girl, I found I got a deep Electra Complex. I found myself hard to fall in love with the boys of the same age. I have forced myself to love a boy who is excellent in many aspects, but I fail to do so. I am wandering if there is something wrong with me or I had got a psychological problem.

Are you satisfactory with your current job? Most of my friends are not, but they cannot do what they want to do, since finding a job is not so easy as past. Of course, in this hot competitive society, they still a large amount of people, who change their jobs often. They always complain how bad this company is and so on…I think we could not deny all of what they said, nor agree. However, at the same time, many bosses also meet the troubles in employee resource. What do you think about it? And how often do you change your job? How long did you work at your first job? How many jobs have you changed? And why did you choose to hunt a new job? Could you show us your opinion?

Well, as long as I am able to down the beer Avangi sends my way I can't be very unhappy! (A Canadian [url=[link]]view [/url].)

Going to the pub on a Friday night is not just a social event.... it is very good for your English as well. Why? After studying hard all week, trying to understand grammar and trying to learn and remember new words, the pub is the perfect place to practise your grammar and vocabulary. The atmosphere in a pub with your friends and classmates is very relaxed so you do not worry about making mistakes with your English. You just try to say what you can and just express yourself. All week you are learning and remembering new words and then of a sudden in the pub you start remembering these words like magic! Conversation in English starts coming and feeling natural and you begin to forget that English is your 2nd language because you are thinnking more about what you are saying and less about how you are saying it - like a native speaker! Also you are listening to English people speak in a natural way and learing how native English people say words and phrases. So go to the pub every Friday and just see how much hour English improves!

I saw a very long thread about this topic, and I wanted to set the record completely straight. You will notice that I mentioned ENGLISH LANGUAGE in the subject. Unless someone can give us a reliable definition for the extremely long finnish word I believe we should refrain from discussing it. The main debate appears to be whether PNEUMONO­ULTRA­MICRO­SCOPIC­SILICO­VOLCANO­CONIOSIS is a legitimate word, as it was coined simply to make a new longest word but has a real definition. Many have said that FLOCCI­NAUCINI­HILIPIL­IFICATION is the longest REAL word, because of previously stated complication with PNEU..., which is described as "factitious", meaning artificial. However, it appears in four respectable dictionaries and as I have said, has a real definition. Because it is "real" enough to be actually used in conversation (although maybe only at medical colleges) I believe it has enough status to be considered a real word, and thus, the longest word in the english language. Chemical names should be thrown out of the question. Seeing as they are basically combinations of many different amino acids, proteins, enzymes and the like, they are not really words but more letter combinations. Antidisestablishmentarianism is a word commonly cited as an example of the longest english word. However, it is shorter than FLOCCI... or PNEUM... which obviously makes it NOT the longest. Some say smiles is the longest because there is a mile between each S. Also, Someone suggested beleaguered, because a league is longer than a mile. Both are true and interesting interpretations (thank you very much to all of those who suggested these), but the thread was asking for longest by letter count, so neither of these count (yes, I may be too thorough). A very interesting link to a page about many of the vowel, syllable, etc. debate, as I do not want to bother with them, is: [link] So there you have it. I hope this is definitive as to the longest word in the english language. Feel free to post back, but please give me a sensible response, and this discussion is NOT about place names, foreign words, or chemical names, so do not use those. Thank you

As you are probably aware of the fact that the scores of tests like TOEFL and IELTS expires two years after the date of test. The reason they give for this is that one's proficiency in a foreign langauge changes considerably with the passage of time and if someone is not coming in contact with that foreign language then the deterioration of language skills is inevitable. I do agree with their explanation. But what they say also applies to almost all other subjects. Take mathematics as an example. If someone is not working with math for sometime then his mathematical skills would deteriorate to a significant degree. I remember I once read somewhere that if you want to be good at mathematics, then do it on a regular basis. Even if you are a mathematician but you are not practicing mathematics, then the chances are that when you write 2 square is 4, you would wonder that why is 2 square equal to 4? That is quite right. I have not been doing any mathematics since last year, therefore what I read once exactly explains my condition. What do you on this?

I can recall back in college I wrote an essay about the internet and how it would change our lives. I wrote that the biggest change would be the amount that the average person writes in their lifetime. I believed, and still do, that, with email and web forums, the internet created for the first time a place where amateur writers could freely express their ideas. Though I don't have any statistics to back up this claim, I do believe my prediction was correct, and I'm sure most of you would agree. There was one thing, however, that I didn't anticipate-- the deterioration of English's written grammar. I'm assuming it began with chat rooms and instant messages, where a quick response outweighs grammatical quality. The end product became a hodgepodge of phonetic abbreviations (wat r u doing), acronyms (imo, btw, brb, g2g), and lower case letters (i am fine), some of which is virtually indecipherable unless you are in the know. This may be suitable for chat rooms and instant messages, where part of the goal is to communicate as quickly as possible, but now this new English "grammar" has settled into other areas of the internet, such as forums, blogs, and personal web pages, where time is certainly not of the essence. Chat room conversations and instant messages disappear shortly after they are posted, but now people are posting for posterity their messages written with these new grammar "rules" in forums where the message is saved indefinitely. In the end, these posts simply look like they were written by someone who couldn't pass their elementary grammar class. As an English teacher, they're quite literally painful to read. IMHO, dis iz a sine of da destruction of our written language, but im obviously biased on da issue. so wat do u think? iz dis sumthin we shud b ashamed of, or has ben franklins dream of a simpler english language finally cum of age?

In addition to your site and my suggestions here there are a lot of websites with advice and tips for practising English. I've explored a lot of websites with advice for practising English, and I've selected the most useful practical material to share with people interested in this issue. Maybe users of this site would like to share information (websites, books, articles, etc) on the most useful helpful advice and tips for practising English. Users of this site could benefit a great deal from that information.
