Hi Irina!

It's going good) not much time to write. I've been taking a course in Office Management in German, my daughter just arrived yesterday for her first visit, there are Skype lessons to teach and a bit of face to face tutoring to do. And I almost forgot to mention the concerts my choir participated in) oh yeah, and karate! I got my first belt! Cooking and cleaning takes time as well (I'm starting to feel dizzy as I enumirate everything that's kept me from writing, I hope you can still follow my train of thought))

Thank you for calling out to me, Irina! As a matter of fact, I do feel that it might be a good idea to start writing more in English. I was thinking of some sort of a recap of the day but I don't expect it could be of interest to anybody.

well well well, thanks for answering!
So, your second language is German, isn't it? And you must have good command of this language if you are taking a course in it. Wow!) I keep struggling to improve it.
Has the course lived up to your expectations so far?
Teaching, singing in a choir, doing karate, coping with daily routine, keeping an eye on the daughter...Doesn't it feel like having too much on your plate?=) How do you manage not to feel overwhelmed?

Irina, don't mention it))

If I learned German and English as a university student, then it would be my second [foreign] language. I personally prefer to think of English as my second language because I learned it as such and not as a foreign language. So if I count Russian as my first and English as my second, then German is my third) I don't take into account another language I learned after English since I didn't achieve any level worth mentioning, about broken A2 maybe.

I'm happy with the course I'm taking. I prefer it to the one I took before it, which was a classic language course, with modern textbooks and all that jazz. My current coach sometimes teases me about the fact that while I'm learning the language about twice as intensive as with an ordinary curriculum I'm getting paid for it, too, not to mention learning the subject of the course)

As for feeling overwhelmed -- actually, the choir and the karate club are on holiday now, hence my being able to respond here) However, it did take me some time to learn how to manage my appointments.

I think we should have a thread where we post funny pictures with some cool language. Until then, I'll post them here ☺️
PS: please excuse their French 😉😅😎

Well, сентябрь на носу.
Йэти очень надеется, что в него мы сможем войти вместе с September...
А чтобы в следующем учебном году все было трижды well, не обойтись без well well well.
И йэти знает, что он не один лелеет эту надежду.))

Hi))
I'm at a loss for words to express my appreciation for all the kind comments you guys keep posting. Please keep up the good work of making sense and promoting good English on this respectable platform.

At this point I would like to thank the forum's administration for providing shelter to the orphaned users of the old efl.ru. The new forum came to existence very promptly, thus allowing the community to stay more or less consolidated. While most of us chewed fat on FB, it emerged and filled the void, chocking the torrent of disappointed grumbling. Kudos to you, people!

Also, I would like to follow advice given by the forum's administration and move my English practice somewhere else. I remain an avid reader of the forum, however, I wish to voice my opinions on various topics even further from here than just the reservation of this thread. Those interested can find me here https://goodmatreshka.blogspot.com/?m=1

I hope to see my, dare I say, friends from here soon. Let me know if you have any suggestions on how to make my blog engaging. In case the idea of registering on yet another website doesn't seem that much attractive to you, I'm open to partnership and collaboration, feel free to suggest topics and ask questions, or maybe even send your own writing to be posted, in that way the blog can become a joint venture).

I really hope I'm not breaking any rules here, as I am not advertising any services but merely trying to stay in touch with like-minded people.
