Part II - Language Learning Strategies ).
نویسنده : غلامعلی عباسی - ساعت ۱٠:٥٠ ‎ق.ظ روز ۱۳٩٥/۱/٢۳


      1)         Some people say that you cannot make a conscious effort to learn a foreign language.  They hate to study grammar and say you must simply allow the language to sink in gradually. 


Others argue that language learning is a conscious and systematic process.   It is necessary to study hard, practise, and constantly ask for explanations and rules.


            Which idea do you believe in?    


2)         Some people think that to learn a new language you must completely forget your native language.  Others say you cannot and should not.  To what extent do you find that comparing your native language with the foreign language helps you to learn a new language?


a.   To what extent do you find translations useful?


b.      Would you prefer to use a bilingual or monolingual dictionary?


3)         Do you feel that you can actually learn to think in the foreign language?  


a.   If yes, how do you think you might achieve that?


b.   How important do you think it is?


Freeway Chase Ends at Newsstand
نویسنده : غلامعلی عباسی - ساعت ۱٠:۳٩ ‎ق.ظ روز ۱۳٩٥/۱/٢۳


 A 24-year-old Los Angeles man was taken to a hospital and then to county jail after leading police on a one-hour freeway chase in a

stolen SUV. The chase ended in downtown Los Angeles in front of the Spring Hotel. Most of the chase was uneventful, except for an  empty bottle of whiskey that the driver threw at one police  vehicle.

When the driver got into downtown, things started to happen. He  ran over a fire hydrant. The water spewed out of the hydrant, causing a geyser that ruined all the books in several carts that a vendor had put outside to attract customers into his bookstore The driver hurriedly turned west onto Grand Avenue and managed to bang into three parked cars on one side of that street and two cars on the other side The driver also tried to run over a police officer, who was standing in the crosswalk ordering him to halt.

Turning north, the driver caused a bus to slam on its brakes to avoid a collision. The bus was empty, and the bus driver was  uninjured. However, two police cars that were pursuing the SUV from different directions were not so lucky. One of them ran into the front of the bus, and the other into the back. Because the drivers had braked early enough, the damage to their cars was minor. Both officers resumed the chase.

They only went two blocks north to find that the SUV had come to a full stop because it had plowed into a newspaper stand. The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was slumped behind the  steering wheel. The proprietor of the newsstand was yelling at the  driver and shaking a magazine at him. The police called for the ambulance. They charged the driver with failure to yield to a police officer and driving under the influence.


The Grasshopper
نویسنده : غلامعلی عباسی - ساعت ۱٠:۳٧ ‎ق.ظ روز ۱۳٩٥/۱/٢۳



A grasshopper spent the summer hopping about in the sun and singing to his heart's content. One day, an ant went hurrying by, looking very hot and weary.

"Why are you working on such a lovely day?" said the grasshopper.

"I'm collecting food for the winter," said the ant, "and I suggest you do the same." And off she went, helping the other ants to carry food to their store. The grasshopper carried on hopping and singing. When winter came the ground was covered with snow. The grasshopper had no food and was hungry. So he went to the ants and asked for food.

"What did you do all summer when we were working to collect our food?" said one of the ants.

"I was busy hopping and singing," said the grasshopper.

"Well," said the ant, "if you hop and sing all summer, and do no work, then you must starve in the winter."

Facebook Celebrates 5th Bithday
نویسنده : غلامعلی عباسی - ساعت ۱٠:۳٥ ‎ق.ظ روز ۱۳٩٥/۱/٢۳

Facebook, the world’s biggest social networking site, iscelebrating its fifth birthday. In a blog post, the site’sfounder, Mark Zuckerberg, states that Facebook will continue to work as hard as it has in the last five years in order to stay the web’s number one communication site.

The company started in a dorm room in 2004. Today it has 150 million active users, more than the 130 million of rival MySpace.

Facebook is different from other social networking sites because you can communicate with people you really know andtrust. Before, most people didn’t want to share their real identities online. Facebook has given people a safe and trusted environment for people to interact online. It has changed the way people view the world. A friend from any country is only a few clicks away.

It was back in February 2004 when Zuckerberg started “The facebook” from a Harvard student’s room. The aim was to help students get in touch with each other over the Internet. Within 24 hours over a thousand students had signed up and soon after that the network spread out to other universities.

By 2005 a research study showed that about 85% of the students in the network had a Facebook account. Anothersurvey showed that Facebook was almost as important as an iPod.

At the end of 2005 Facebook came to the U.K. and up to today the site has been translated into 35 languages.

Five years after its start Facebook has escaped the universities and colleges. More than half of its users are not at college anymore and the fastest growing group are the 30 to 40 year olds. Every day 15 million users update their profiles to tell their friends and the world what’s happening to them. They alsoshare photos, upload videos, chat, make friends, join groups – and simply have fun

A conjunction is a word that links words, phrases, or clauses. There are three types of conjunctions:coordinatingconjunctions, correlativeconjunctions, and subordinatingconjunctions. Coordinating conjunctions may join single words, or they may join groups of words, but they must always join similar elements: e.g. subject+subject, verb phrase+verb phrase, sentence+sentence. When a coordinating conjunction is used to join elements, the element becomes a compound element. Correlative conjunctions also connect sentence elements of the same kind: however, unlike coordinating conjunctions, correlative conjunctions are always used in pairs. Subordinating conjunctions, the largest class of conjunctions, connect subordinate clauses to a main clause. These conjunctions are adverbs used as conjunctions.

The following tables show examples of the various types of conjunctions and some sample sentences using the conjunctions. Since coordinating conjunctions and correlative conjunctions are closed sets of words, all are included in the list. Subordinating conjunctions are a larger class of words; therefore, only a few of the more common ones are included in this list.



















An easy way to remember these six conjunctions is to think of the word FANBOYS. Each of the letters in this somewhat unlikely word is the first letter of one of the coordinating conjunctions. Remember, when using a conjunction to join two sentences, use a comma before the conjunction.

این مقاله شامل۲بخش یادگیری و بیادسپاری لغات می باشد. بسیاری از ما روزانه لغات زیادی را دیده و حتی می توانیمبراحتی برای چند دقیقه بخاطر بسپاریم، آیا تا بحال فکر کرده اید اگر کلیه لغاتی که با آنها مواجه می شوید و بطور کوتاه مدت یاد می گیرید، وارد حافظه بلند مدت شما شده بود، تابحال چند لغت بخاطر داشتید؟

یادگیری اولیه لغات:

اولین قدم برای افزایش دایره لغات مشاهده آنها و یادگیری اولیه آن است. به مطالعه متون مختلف عمومی و تخصصیبپردازید. داستان، خبر، مقاله و .. . این روزها با گسترش اینترنت این منابع در دسترس همگی هست و بهترین مطالب و منابع برای یادگیری و تقویت زبان اینترنت می باشد. لغات آشنا به همراه معنی آنها یادداشت کنید. در ابتدای کار از لغات مهم و ضروی شروع کنید و هر روز لیستی از لغات جدید داشتهباشید. لیست مناسبی از لغات مربوط به کتاب ۵۰۰لغت کاملا ضروری (۵۰۴ Essential Words) می باشد که می توانید فلش کارت آن رااز این قسمت دانلود کنید.

حال به مهم ترین بخش کار یعنی یادگیری این لغات می پردازیم:

ابتدا هر لغت را یک بار به همراه معنی بخوانید و شکل آنها را دیده و بخاطر بسپارید. لغت را در ذهن خود تصویر سازی کنید، به عنوان مثال برای حفظ کردن کلمه Book (کتاب) تصویر یک کتاب را به همراه شکل کلمه Book در ذهن خود مجسم کنید. این کار هم از لحاظ لغت-معنی و هم املای کلمه بسیار مفید خواهد بود. به همین ترتیب تمامی لغات را بطور سطحی بخاطر بسپارید و آنها را واردحافظه کوتاه مدت خود بکنید. از فراموش کردن آنها نگران نباشید، در این مرحله هدف فقط بخاطر سپاری اولیه لغات است، در مرحله بعد خواهید آموخت چگونه یک لغت را تا ابد بیاد داشته باشید.

بخاطرسپاری ابدی لغات:

Common Word Roots
نویسنده : غلامعلی عباسی - ساعت ۱۱:٠۸ ‎ق.ظ روز ۱۳٩٥/۱/٢٢


root, as its name suggests, is a word or word part from which other words grow, usually through the addition ofprefixes and suffixes. The root of the word vocabulary, for example, is voc, a Latin root meaning "word" or "name." This root also appears in the words advocacy, convocation, evocative, vocal, and vociferous.

Understanding the meanings of the common word roots can help us deduce the meanings of new words that we encounter. But be careful: root words can have more than one meaning and various shades of meaning. In addition, words that look similar may derive from different roots. So when you meet up with a new word, be sure to rely on a dictionary to check its definition.

The table below defines and illustrates 30 of the most common Greek and Latin roots. The letter in parentheses indicates whether the root word is Greek (G) or Latin (L).

Common Prefixes in English
نویسنده : غلامعلی عباسی - ساعت ۱۱:٠٦ ‎ق.ظ روز ۱۳٩٥/۱/٢٢


prefix is a letter or a group of letters attached to the beginning of a word that partly indicates its meaning. For example, the word prefix itself begins with a prefix--pre-, which generally means "before."

Understanding the meanings of the common prefixes can help us deduce the meanings of new words that we encounter. But be careful: some prefixes (such as in-) have more than one meaning (in this example, "not" and "into").

The table below defines and illustrates 35 common prefixes.

Common Prefixes




a-, an-


















com-, con-


companion, contact





off, away from






put into



out of, former

extract, ex-president


beyond, more than









over, more


il-, im-, in-, ir-

not, without

illegal, immoral, inconsiderate, irresponsible




















not, without



all, every





pre-, pro-

before, forward

precede, project
