3:15 pm - NEW LAW
moshyy If I could change a law in USA, I would change the immigration laws. Why is very difficult to get a visa student. Why is there so many requirements. I would created a law that doesn't requires to many things.

2:30 pm - weird food ..
moshyy When I was in Canada I tasted Persian-Arabic food and it was awful. Arabics eat yougurt with mint in every single food. Is like mexican ate guacamole, Arabics ate yougurt (salty yougurt). Also one of the food that they eat is called KABAB which means meat for them but is not meat is kind of meat mixed with other stuff. It tasted horrible.

2:17 pm - Learning how to speak English !!
moshyy I love English since I was little...
In my opinion I think grammar is the most difficult one because is not just translate from your own language.Moreover, we have apply the grammar into everything like writing and speaking.

10:59 pm - Learning English
j20 In your opinion, what is the most difficult aspect of learning English? If you say grammar, what about it? If you say, pronunciation, give examples. You can also choose something else, including listening, speaking, reading or writing. Also, what have you done to address this difficulty? Do you have any advice for other students with the same problem?


I like English that's why I am here, to learn and to practice. I 've been studying Enlglish for almost one year and half and I think I've improved a lot in the english language, like writing, reading and speaking. Sometimes the most difficult thing for me is when I'm speaking to another person who only knows how to speak english like Ms. Miller or Shannon. I get nervous with that kind of situation because I feel like they dont understand me very well. :(
Another example is, I get frustrated when I'm trying to pronunciate well and I can't. Like simple questions or when I'm asking for something. Also the subject grammar sometimes is too much information and I don't grasp it very well. One advice from me to everybody will be: PRACTICE SPEAKING, WRITING AND READING AT HOME, WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND AT WORK. :)

6:54 pm - Last Question...

mijop
If I could change one law, it could be for people who eat nachos, this is not an issue about brands, just about people eating and their criteria. I would like to appeal the Justice Department in order to eradicate this problem. Because they think they are hot eating that thing in public areas and they are not. Like someone may say, “They are just pretending” says Mijop.

In my humble opinion the most difficult aspect of English are the rules, because it is overwhelming. I have been reading in order to overcome this problem, and maybe in a few months with a lot of effort, this problem will be eradicated, at least for writing good research papers.

lupitapl I think that in the U.S all laws are really followed by everyone and you can see the difference as you cross from Mexico to the Unites States. I think I would like to put a law in Mexico that consists in charging any officer that commits corruption. I think that this is a big problem in Mexico so maybe it would be a good law.

5:55 pm - Last question or bonus queston

luisgc
I would change the law for the criminals. For example if someone kills somebody he would be in jail for all his life unless it would be self-defense. Other laws I would change would be giving tickets to all the persons who throw garbage on the streets. I hate those people. In this case I'm talking of Mexico because in USA there's already that law.


If you could change one law, what would it be and why? This could be a law from the U.S. or your country. You can eliminate the law or change the penalty by making it more or less severe. Please explain the justification for you choice.

5:48 pm - hiii SO AM I ;)

luisgc
I have never eaten something strange since i remembered.
I dont' know why =( i haven't exprience that situation.
All the type of food i have eaten is very common.
For example: fish, chiken, hamburguers, pizza, Carne Asada with Taquitos!! mmmhhh YUMMY etc.
I will never eat kokoroaches in my life or insects. I hate them, they are too small.
All i can say is that I love food, common food not insects...

This question is about strange foods. What's the strangest thing you've ever eaten? Where were you? Why did you eat it? Would you eat it again? On the other hand, is there something that you regularly eat that someone else has called strange?

4:47 pm - Last question....
kkiikkaa Well i think the most difficult aspect about learning English is speaking. You can know the grammar rules and know how to write them, but when it comes the moment of speaking it, it´s hard to do it fluently. I guess i have improved a lot my speaking by practicing during class. My advice to English students is to practice with your friends and classmates in order that you get more use to the idiom.

meloancira One thing of the most difficult things of english is when you are talking with a person and we can heard very well if he or she said: beer, beard, bird. I think is difficult to hear exactly what the person said but with more practice we can do it.

Well I think that what is more difficult for me is knowing the writing skills. For example, when I write essays I make a lot of mistakes but know with the writing class I´ve learned a lot of new things that help me prevent the mistakes that I always made. To address this difficulty I´ve been practicing a lot by making a lot of essays and exercises. My advice is that for you to have success in anything you need to always practice until you have great results:)

    3:38 pm - Strange Foods

    mijop
    I think the weirdest food is tamalitos, it is not fancy, but for me is as exotic as any food specially if you add to your plate beans. It makes me wonder if tamalitos would be top of this list. ;)

    3:35 pm - Languages

    mijop
    I think the hardest language to learn is Chinese because of the symbols and everything involved. Moreover the alphabet is huge, if you try to read a book in Chinese you will need at least 2000 symbols to understand it.
