Vocabulary now a days is the main focus because it is needed too much in order to speak some good language. Although there is dissertation service that can provide you more reviews in certain fields.

Sounds great safe guards, I won’t say “like a priest’s believe” :)) ๐Ÿ‘ผ
I see people suffering everywhere, the numbers and reasons are in a great proportional increase day after day, I lost the taste of self happiness, I wish that rapid and easy communication facilities were never developed or reached that stage.
Thank you so much for your acceptance of my add friend request.๐ŸŒป

I see no colors when I take someone’s tragedy close to heart.  For days I’m thinking about it and… That’s when i see no colors. But God helps me to get back to normal and show that on everything is His will and He takes care of the suffered ones.

@33: I am sorry I did not mean to offend u, I was kidding with you when said you are still a kid based on the age u mentioned in your profile :(
Of course I remember some of my childhood but I meant that I cannot remember whether I was like those kids you described as having lots of capabilities or not.
Wish you all the best dear ;-) not in a priest style :)

You use phrases.  Everyone’s taking their own technique in learning languages.


Strange you don’t remember yourself as being a child, the time which is the most memorable in life.


Well, I try not to judge people and describe them as kids, adults, teens or elders


 But I agree with you as for the country I live in. Yes, it is beautiful.


“God bless you” are so high words usually used by a priest.


Anyway, thanks.

@99, don’t underrestimate kid’s power to learning, their vocabulary and grammar skills. They’re far ahead of us but they behave naturally, humbly, without ambitions and they’re teachable. So I’m for being a child – it’s lots of fun, believe me.


Take it  as a temper tantrum, kind of rebellious force:) BTW, one thing about vocabulary—never use vacabulary while learning new words, you’ll never learn them… And I’m not a specialist :)

Oh I read you comment @33 once again but slowly, yes, U are right. Kids deal with us as kids.

@ola33, if U r referring to “temper tantrum”, some socialists and specialists say that due to the lack of vocabulary, experience, sentence building qualities, convincing capabilities, negotiation skills … Etc, the child acts that way.
Adults who are enjoying those qualities should not act same as that child and go through temper tantrum as such.
I hope I got what you meant by your comment … Warm regards ..

 the point is, @99, a child doesn’t see the size and age ;)
