付加疑問文 Tag Questions + Dialogue Listen for the tag questions. View All Dialogues + Mari: You know what’s the worst? Alison: What? Mari: When you have to go to the bathroom so badly, and you just cannot find a public restroom. Alison: It’s so true, and there aren’t very many alternatives. Mari: No. And I feel like we’re so lucky in the US because we have a lot of public restrooms. If you’ve traveled extensively, you don’t always get to places that have them. Alison: Exactly. Mari: And then you realize… Pretty lucky. Now, the flip side of that is that they are not always the cleanest places, are they? Alison: I know! I always worry about my hygiene when I go in. I was in a public restroom the other day, and there were no soap dispensers and no paper towels. Mari: I understand. And sometimes, there’s a lack of privacy, like there’s not really doors, and the door doesn’t lock. But you know, when it’s an emergency, they’re your best resource. Alison: I am glad we have options. Discussion Mari and Jessica agree that public bathrooms have advantages and disadvantages. They are not usually clean places, and Jessica worries about her hygiene whenever she uses a public restroom. Also, because they are public, these bathrooms are often missing necessary supplies, like soap and paper towels. And they don’t always give people enough privacy.However, Mari and Jessica also think that, in an emergency situation, a public bathroom is a wonderful resource. Not every country has restrooms for people to use when they are traveling around town. Marni thinks people in the US should feel lucky because they have the option to use public restrooms, and Jessica agrees with her.Do you have many public bathrooms in your country?

#/trackback – The Art of Website Trackback Etiquette

The Art of Website Trackback Etiquette Trackback Etiquette: Using trackbacking as a traffic building tool is a fine art. Many bloggers make the mistake of going trackback crazy before their blog has enough or even any content. This may bring new readers in but they will not stay long or bookmark your site as you don’t give them a reason to. It is also important to know your place in the blog hierarchy. The really popular bloggers are trackbacked constantly so you will not likely get their attention by trackbacking because you will be one of many. You need to carefully pick and choose who you trackback and when you trackback if you want to use it for building your blog traffic. Trackback spam is also a big problem nowadays, so when you receive a trackback to your blog, make sure you check to see the blog that initiated it, it could be a spam blog. You will know this because the blog doesn’t have any original content, it just republishes the content of other blogs. I suggest you delete any trackback spam and only let the real trackbacks from real blogs go through live on to your blog or website. Try some trackbacks today and see if it will open doors to new relationships with other bloggers. Here’s to your blogging success, Yaro Starak from Entrepreneurs-Journey Edited by Glen Rowell

How to Study in Six Simple Steps

How to Study in Six Simple Steps Space (1) How to Study: It is easier to study when you are in a comfortable space. Make room, mentally and physically, for studying. Take a deep breath and pause for a moment before you start. Remember the types of things that make you comfortable. Find a quiet and comfortable space where you can focus without distractions. Place (2) Personalize your workspace. Surround yourself with items that inspire and motivate you. This could include quotes, posters or images that help you remember things. Arrange your desk and study materials in a way that makes it easy to study. Use organizers, shelves and containers to keep everything tidy but accessible. Also remove all the things you don’t need on your desk. Lots of people just pile up stuff and move it to the side but this makes it difficult to study at times. Pace (3) Notice the way you like to work, and adjust your pace accordingly. If you work slowly just allow more time to study. A 10-minute break for 30 minutes study works for a lot of people. Also don’t forget to check how much you actually remembering after studying for about 30 minutes. It’s easy to study for hours but not remember what you have been studying. Memory (4) Our brains are wired to remember the first and last things best. So use this to your advantage by putting the most important bits of information there. Method (5) It’s always good to have a plan. However big or complex your task may look at first sight, with a feasible plan you can always find a way to manage it. When studying, break your biggest goal into smaller chunks or tasks. It’s best if each of these chunks consists of a single topic. Often, you’ll discover one or two key elements that stand out and get fixed in your mind. You can then use those as building blocks. Classic tricks used by memory […]

Study Tips + How to Study English Effectively – Version 2

Study Tips – Below are a few ideas on studying English effectively. There are many ways to study English, but many students ask which is the most effective.

Warming-up to Study English Just as there are exercises to help you warm up before you play some basketball or other sport, there are exercises which can help you warm up to study English. Here are some simple exercises to help you warm up. How to Study EffectivelyStudy Tips 1: Activate Your Vocabulary Activate your vocabulary by thinking or speaking briefly about the subject you are about to work on.

For example, if you are going to study English grammar focusing on the past, stop to think about what you did last weekend, where you went, etc. to help activate what you already understand about using the past. As with activating vocabulary, you’ll help your brain bring up what it knows about the past simple in an easy way before you begin to focus on studying English grammar in detail. 3: Sing a Song Before class begins, or before you sit down to study English sing a song in English to yourself.
