8 posts in this topic

It might drive us crazy that our mobiles are out of power, especially when we need to contact someone immediately. What you want most at the very moment is JUST a charger or power bank. If you don’t have neither of them, you might need ask for help. Followings will help you out, definitely.

Only rarely... or when I'm teaching... or examining.....

the thing is, a person will NEVER achieve native-level like fluency in a language, because the native speakers just nod their heads and say "it's ok, I know what you mean:... So, we end up having these mistakes that we keep making, because no-one ever bothers to correct us!

I was saying "washing washing" for months, before someone pointed out that it's not 'xi xi", but "xie xie". Everyone just smiled, nodded, and said "we know what you mean".

It's cool. I wouldn't agree less :)
