Word and Phrase Origin: three sheets

Submitted by harryterrafrank on Пт, 02/27/2015 - 21:56

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

be three sheets to/in the wind
The sheet (帆脚索) is the line or chain attached to the lower corner of a sail.
By tightening up on this line or by slacking it off, the set of the sail is controlled.
When the sheet is allowed to run quite free, the sail is said to be in the wind.
Thus, when all three sheets are to the wind or in the wind, the sails are fluttering
without control and the ship wallows and staggers like a person drunk.

Who I am learning English

Submitted by Saraevolution on Пт, 02/27/2015 - 19:53



When I started to study at UFBA,  I didn't know much about English. The only thing that I knew was the verb "to be" which i learned in the secondary school. I have always liked English, but I never had the opportunity of taking a course and I never had books and I didn't have access to the internet and multimedia. The time passed and I saw that to start to studying at university would be a way of learning English free and I will be able to be an English teacher.
