Fanpage vs. Funpage!

A short video showing the difference between the two words :) (in Polish)

Remember "fun" is not pronounced the same way as "fan" :)
And in my opinion this is why so many people make this mistake in Poland :(
Oh well... maybe my vid will change that :)

Have any more examples? Ideas? frustrations? Don't hesitate to post them :)


Rozmowa na podst. materiału stym. Matura ustna 2012

Here is the last part of my "Matura Emergency" series for this year :)
Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys!

And remember - your result is due to your hard work! You keep thanking me for ALL that help :)
I really didn't do that much :) It's your accomplishment :)
You baked the cake, I merely topped it with a little cherry :) Or perhaps added the icing :)


Motivating myself :)

Hi guys!
Today a gobbledygook video about self-motivation and preparing oneself for an event/occasion etc.
Now I will tell you something about myself.... It's a secret...

I've wanted to start my driver's course since September last year when I came back from the States.
But I am the type of person that needs time to process a lot of information and, more accurately, I need to find time and motivation to enroll.
So I wanted to, but was too lazy to actually do the first step. :)
However, I am the type of person that makes decision REALLY quickly when I must or am forced to.
For example during my university years (I miss them!) when there was one (!) day left to apply for another major (spanish Philology) and no time to lose, I managed to get all the papers, take some necessary photographs of my horrible face, fill in all the paperwork and officially apply.
If I had had more than a day (like maybe two weeks), I probably would not have done anything, and never would have enrolled!

The same thing was with this driver's course. As I was saying, I wanted to but had no motivation.
Then one of my work buddies (another English teacher) said she had just enrolled and was waiting for the first class. She asked me to join (as we spoke about the necessity of having a licence the month before) and having NO TIME to make up my mind, I decided "what the hell! It's time!" and did it :)

How is it with you guys? Do you need to force yourselves to get somewhere?
Do you need someone to push you a bit?
For me it's basically about the first step - and then I either get involved or not :)

And if you haven't seen the video yet, here it is :

Rozmowa Wstępna - Oral Matura!

Hello my dear readers!
Today an addition to my Polish/ English video on YT.
You can naturally watch thru my blog as well :)

 Here are some questions and simple answers.
How would you elaborate and create something more complex and automatically something that would give you more points?


Question: What music do you listen to?


Answer: I listen to rock n' roll , sometimes rap.

 BETTER REPLY (using very easy grammar!) 

Answer: (Let me think...) It depends on my mood. For example when I am sad and depressed I usually listen to rock or pop. This cheers me up. Sometimes I'm in a more romantic mood, then I listen to classical music - Tchaikovsky is my favorite. Finally, when I am happy and cheerful I listen to ballads as they never bring me down.

(I used present simple and very easy adjectives like sad, depressed, happy, cheerful. Of course the more difficult your speech the better! But this is an excellent improvement to the one above!)

(try to make these answers as long as possible)

1. Where do you live?
2. Do you have any siblings? How do you get along?
3. Do you celebrate any events in your family?
4. What do you do when you come home from school?
5. Have you ever worked during the holidays?  (remember to lie! if you haven't! you need to show off vocabulary!!!)
6. what house work do you do around the house?
7.What is your favorite dish?
8. Have you ever been seriously ill? ( lie!)
9. what is the most expensive thing you have ever bought?
10. what have you recently seen in the cinema?



Uploading to youtube is my new video from yet another trip! This time to Edinburgh! I am truly enchanted with this city though it was freakishly cold! But i love the Scots (even the kilts), I love buildings... I will post at least three parts of my adventure so stay tuned.
