23 Oct.: 世界中に、雪が降り、雪が降り、
    雪は世界の端から端まで吹き荒れた。
    蝋燭はテーブルの上に燃えた、蝋燭は燃えた。
   It snowed and snowed, the whole world over,
snow swept the world from end to end.
A candle burned on the table;
A candle burned. (Doctor Zhivago)

I’ve not been written my blog for a while, though I properly study English everyday!

From this month, I also take an English class anyone can attend at a university twice a week.   

 

I think listening skill is being better than before, but speaking and writing skills need to study more and more.

As the reason, I have no opportunity to use English in my lifestyle, except the English class.

I've heard speaking skill can improve by talking with foreigners at a bar, a café and so on.

After seeing the film "Temple Grandin"

Submitted by open space on Втр, 10/21/2014 - 13:32

Language - (hold down the CTRL key to select more than one):

     To most people, Temple seems to be a godforsaken person who has an entirely different soul from others. Temple’s mom keeps emphasizing that Temple is different, but not less. However, People forget that everyone is different and unique, so they tend to tell abnormal people from normal ones. They fail to discern that it is the differences between us makes the world beautiful world. What’s worse, the majority usually discriminates and judges people dissimilar to them. Temple is a lucky one; she suffers less from the discrimination and achieves a respectable status after growing up.

I'm learning English and I would like some help, I've never done this exchange language partners before...
I would love to learn about American and England culture and try to have a conversation, and of course I would love to help you with your Portuguese and help you to practice your fluency :)

So, anyone can explain to me how and why we use this example:
I was up all Night because he coughed so loud.
I was up all night because of his coughing so loud.
