book into movie

Every time I watch a movie that was based on a book I have read, I feel somewhat disappointed. Even if the movie is good, I always feel there’s something missing…

Being fluent in a foreign language is not an easy task.

It takes time an effort.

Here are some tips from my conversation group on how

to be a better speaker of English:

1) Have a good range of vocabulary and grammar (reading, listening to  music, watching movies)

2) Be confident. The more you are afraid, the less you speak.

3) Change the words you don’t know.

4) Fill the silences to keep the listener’s attention.

5) Don’t worry about accent. You don’t need to sound like a native speaker.

6) Enjoy speaking English!!!

How useful do you think these tips are?

Which ones do you try or will try to use?

I s Semenya really a woman?

Caster Semenya won by a huge margin Wednesday in the face of revelations that the world track body asked her to undergo gender testing.

About three weeks ago, the IAAF asked the South African athletics federation to conduct the gender test after Semenya burst onto the scene by posting a world leading time of 1 minute, 56.72 seconds at the African junior championships in Bambous, Mauritius.Her father, Jacob, told the Sowetan newspaper: “She is my little girl. … I raised her and I have never doubted her gender. She is a woman and I can repeat that a million times.”

There have been other curious cases like this in the history of athletics. Other athletes like Stella Walsh, Zdenka Koubkova, Dora Ratjen and Ewa Klobukowska left many people wondering whether they were really women.

Take a look at their pictures, what do you think???
