Work Together As A Team
As a teacher, simply "teaching" a student does not make them learn better or faster but working as a team to learn from each other is very important. Learning about their goals, struggles and having them teach me about their culture can make a big difference. It can change how I teach and how they learn. It's team work!
One of the things I love about blogging is that everyone interested in learning English can share my work to help other people learn as well. Same as I do with other educational blogs, I share their work, they share my work, and we can pass on great information to learners everywhere. Everyone can achieve more this way!
With that said, I am so glad that we can all work together to learn English!
Valentine's Day is approaching in a few days. How are you going to express your love to your Valentine? Whether you're writing a card, an email, or face to face, below are some other ways to say "I love you" to someone.
Are these expressions familiar to you? Let me point out that "head over heels" is an idiom meaning to be in love with someone very much. It is commonly used with the word "fall." For example, "I'm falling head over heels for her."
Also, you may have heard the phrase "You complete me." It became very popular after the movie Jerry McGuire with the actor Tom Cruise. Have you ever seen that movie? "You complete me" means you are incomplete without that person. That person makes your life perfect and gives you meaning to your life.
Of course, saying a simple "I love you" never gets old! How will you celebrate Valentine's Day this year?
Have you ever been in a picture where someone is doing something weird or funny in the background? If you answered yes, then you've been photobombed!
The word "photobomb" is a pretty new term that was first added to dictionaries in recent years. In fact, in 2014, it was the Word Of The Year by Collins English Dictionary.
Photobomb is the act of being in a photograph without the person knowing, usually in the background. It will "bomb" or ruin the photo (because there is an unexpected person in there).
A person or thing who ruins the picture or "photobombs" is known as a "photobomber" (more than one person is known as "photobombers"). This person drops in the background of a picture to be funny or to ruin a picture on purpose.
How can we use this word?
"Even dogs can photobomb pictures!"
"I'm so upset, all my pictures from last night were photobombed by tourists!"
"Please stop photobombing our pictures. It's not funny!"
"I thought you were a photobomber standing behind us"

Learning Is a Treasure
We learn things on a daily basis, whether we realize it or not! Learning comes in so many forms not just reading a textbook. A lot of the times, we can learning through our life experiences, the ups and downs. When we are silent and listening to someone talk, we're learning as well.
Life really never stops teaching, so never stop learning or pushing yourself to learn new things.
