I have my favourite linguistic jokes (plays on words), which I īve shared before. I love this new one!
īA woman has triplets and gives them up for adoption. One goes to America and is called Randy. One goes to Egypt and is called Emmal and the other goes to Spain and they name him Juan. Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. She tells her husband that she wishes she had pictures of the others. He replies: Don īt be daft - they īre identical! Once you īve seen Juan, you īve seen Emmal! ī
For ever ... a baby? ... Pooing, peeing, burping, vomiting, being changed ... constantly crying ... but often receiving nice, happy, loving cuddles.
Yes! I think so!
For ever ... a child? ... Going to school, coming back from school, doing homework, crying ... constantly hungry ... but often laughing, playing, and being tucked up in bed by a lovely Mam.
Yes! I think so!
For ever ... a teenager? ... Being bullied, being alone, falling in love but your love is not returned, trying to make friends ... constantly lonely ... but then you meet someone special, who changes your life.
Yes! I think so!
For ever ... a young man? ... Working, studying at night classes, failing professional exams, studying at home, night and day, failing again ... constantly despairing ... but then you go back home to the Paradise in your life.
Yes! I think so!
Or, would you rather be, for ever ... an old person? ... Having money, having your own house, having a family, having security, and respect, and position ... constantly working ... but still lonely, because, you have no-one close to you, to share it with.
What do you think?
... That is a rhetorical question that needs no answer!

Summer is a time for big blockbuster movies and I just wanted to share another activity I was working on for my kids. This one helps my youngest students learn and review some vocabulary related to movies. It is a bingo / matching game. It is easy to play and can be used as a whole class or small group activity. Hope these can be useful for other teachers, educators, and parents here. Enjoy and keep having a fun summer!
I have been away from ESL teaching for several years. In the past I used to contribute to this site and checked the forum regularly. Recently my son īs fiancé asked me to help her with learning English from beginner īs level. She just wants to have some good level of informal English, that could be of use while traveling.
I guess with technology growing rapidly there are some new great English learning websites that I don īt know of. Could somebody suggest me any? Or maybe just remind me of the good old ones? I īve forgotten a lot and not quite sure where to start from...
I īve tried to send a printable many times but I haven īt been successful. I received some messages which suggested me contacting the webmaster. I don īt know how to contact him. Give me some advice, please.
I think we are agreed that there is a certain amount of encroachment from the word īprize ī into the rightful territory of the word īaward ī. I won the English prize at school, which was really an award. Heady days, never to be repeated, alas.
Award is a verb, too, btw. It is recognition for effort or achievement, whereas a prize can be arbitrary, or as the result of a competition as Douglas points out. Just my two pennīorth!
Social worker is a much broader role than counsellor. A counsellor counsels, whereas a social workerīs caseload may include many different types of case with different needs. Generally, the patient makes an appointment with the counsellor, for a session of up to one hour per week, although of course it may vary. In many instances, the social worker will have to take the initiative with the people s/he is dealing with. They have a boss to whom they refer difficult cases or ask for advice.
