カタカナ vs English Extra 002
Why don`t you compare English and Japanese by looking into Katakana loan words and trace them back to those etymons?
A big hit pop song sung a long time ago, `Yellowish cherries` is to those who have someone to care for what `Katakana` is to ESL learners.
It isn`t usually easy for you to judge them on the spot whether or not those Katakana loan words can be understood as English because we have a wide variety of Katakana loan words brought into Japanese.

FILM REVIEW- American Beauty (FCE task) /Please, grade it¡

Submitted by MiguelMK on Пт, 08/22/2014 - 20:13



I still remember these poetical words from the movie: “Sometimes there is so much beauty in the world, I can´t ever stand it, and it feels like my heart is going to burst”.

American Beauty is one of the best comedy-drama films I have ever seen. The five Oscars it won, included the Oscar to the best movie of 1999, are without any doubt well-deserved.

      It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my Soul.

My two little babies

Submitted by Marek_Winehouse on Чт, 08/21/2014 - 22:59



I have two little babies named "cherry" and "morusa" they are dogs and are beautiful. They tend to be inside of the house almost all of the time, they do what ever the want and are very stubborn. Although they are not very exemplar I love them from the bottom of my heart and I will never stop doing it.    

Thanks for helping others.
