Hello.

It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!

On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

    Where is your today's list of vocabulary, @Hasti? I don't see it :(
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,061 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I agree with @Tinka where is the list?
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭✭
    This is the list
    While I was studying for IELTS, I used to make my daily tasks be involved in English. e.g. If wanted to watch a movie the movie was an English one. Listening to BBC our Euronews, reading msn, yahoo and bloomberg, talking to my self in front of mirror while combing my hair...and as a result, I got 8 bands.
    Now, as an Higher Degree by Research (HDR) student, I should study lots of papers related to my major...and today's vocab are chosen from my reviewed paper.
    Also as mentioned, I will chose some GRE words...It is appreciated that you do the same. lets share our daily vocab :)

    I’m already studying English for three consecutive hours due to my strong wish to deploy my time and energy as good as possible. I ‘m not satisfied until I pass the threshold of 5 new English words, burned into my memory. The work is really hard and I’m scared to be seriously debilitated after that. Nevertheless I’m sure that the @Hasti’s homework is deemed a great opportunity for achieving my studying objectives.

    Don’t believe me, I don’t study so hard :)

    BTW, I'm not sure if I used all these words correctly. Can somebody correct that?

    @Tinka That was awesome. I really appreciate it. I will check it for you tomorrow <3

    @ hasti it is awesome
  • [Ex Member][Ex Member] Posts: 0 ✭✭✭
    I do believe that the more examples you make, the better the vocab is memorized. As a result, the followings are my examples for today's vocab:
    I was almost DEBILITATED after waiting for issuing my offer for three CONSECUTIVE months. It was DEEMED to be issued after one or two weeks so waiting for three weeks was significantly higher than my boredom THRESHOLD. As fortunately it was issued this morning, I now believe that to bare this process you need to DEPLOY your sense of optimism :D
