Let's talk

In my last post, I wrote about how to find a language partner.  Hopefully that went well, you've contacted some people on the Mixxer and have agreed on days and times to meet on Skype.  What now?

Thanks for helping others.

Complain

Submitted by Julian Ernesto on Thu, 10/19/2017 - 17:42



Dear Sir / Madam

I am writing to complain about an extremely awful experience I had in your hotel last week. I had received excellent references about the hotel, so I decided to go there with my wife and my eight kids. We planned to have a time of relaxing and enjoying, but we all were very surprised with the treatment of some of your employers.

Thanks for helping others.

The environment

Submitted by Enriquehc on Wed, 10/18/2017 - 12:50



Nowadays we can see the climate is changing, the tornadoes are more dangerous, the sea leavel is increasing, and the forests are under threat, as well some species are in danger. I wonder until where we go to stop damaging our only home, this planet. If all people could do someting as little it seems, that could make a big difference.

Thanks for helping others.

Similarity and differences between Obon and Halloween.

Submitted by ezohukuro on Wed, 10/18/2017 - 06:08



Returning spirits of dead person to this world seems common idea in the world. For example, Day of the dead is famous event in Mexico. Religions and cultures may have such kind of event respectively. Here I want to compare Obon, a Japanese event for returned dead spirit, and Halloween, an American and British event.

Thanks for helping others.
