Hello everyone!
The weekend is about to begin. I hope you will enjoy your time off and rest as much as possible.
If you don't have any plans I would like to recommend listening to the music by Bob Marley. I assume that most of us know at least few songs by this musician. But, do you know the album called "Kaya"? For certain fans of reggae music are familiar to these songs but what about the rest?
In my opinion music from this record is perfect for a relaxing weekend. So, sit down, put your headphones on and enjoy listening!

If you still don't know what kaya means, look it up on:

This online dictionary could be really useful in the future.

If you are interested in finding more about Bob Marley you may watch the documentary on this weekend:

Take care!

As far as I remember I have always liked documentaries regarding music. Last night I watched an amazing story about a man who sold only 6 records of his first album in the U.S. and millions of them in South Africa.
In America almost nobody knows him as a muscian. In South Africa he is an icon, a music voice for few genarations.
In his homeland people know him as a hard labour worker who leads a modest life. In Cape Town and Johannesburg he is more popular than The Rolling Stones.
How come that a humble guy from the suburbs of Detroit has become a big star in the other part of our planet?
What really happend with Sugar Man? Is that true that he committed suicide on te stage at the end of his last performance?
You will find all the ansewrs in a movie called "Searching for Sugar Man".

Enjoy watching and have a nice week.
Take care!

How are you today? How has been your weekend so far?
I hope you are enjoying yourself. I do not want to rain on your parade but the weekend is almost over.

Recently I have found a new English idiom which maybe you will find useful.

rain on someone's parade - to spoil someone's plans or pleasure, to spoil something for someone

As you see, it does not regard rain or parade. Below you find few examples how to use it.

1. I'm sorry to rain on your parade, but you're not allowed to have food or drinks in the theater.

2. I missed a train and then lost my wallet but it didn't rain on my parade. I had the time of my life last weekend.

3. I hate to rain on your parade, but your plans are all wrong.

So, I hope nothing has rained on your parade this weekend and you are having a good time.

Take care! Bye!

Hi there!
Right now I am reading a book by Kurt Vonegut. Actually, I had read the book in the past. Anyaway, I highly recommend this novel for people who have gallows humor and like satire.

"Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand"

"True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country"

"Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward."

If you like these quotes, you should give this book a try.
"Breakfast of champions" by Kurt Vonnegut.

Enjoy reading and see you soon!

Over last few days I have been thinking about the people who use this website.

I assume that most of us want to improve and master English. How long have you been on this website? How do you use it? How often?
What section of www.e-ang.pl do you click on?
Are you making progress with learning new words? Did you add your private words?

I would like to share my personal experience with e-ang.pl, regarding words.

I have been here for almost 3 years and I have learnt around 75% of words from the "vocabulary" section so far. In addition I have added 30 sets of my private words and expressions. When I come across a new word or expression I look it up in my "paper" dictionary. I check new stuff on www.diki.pl as well so I would like to recommend this online dictionary.

Check it out because you will learn new things and know how to use it correctly.

The funny thing with learning new words is that almost every time when I memorize a certain word then on the same day or day after I see it on the Internet, or in some English book or magazine or hear it in a movie.
I think to myslef: Ohh, yeah..it has been worth learning it. Even though it is not common word, for instance: discombobulate. In the begining you may think: o.k. it sounds interesting, kind of weird. But will I hear it or use it in the future?
By the way, according to www.thefreedictionary.com discombobulate means "To throw into a state of confusion".

So, what about you? Could you be so kind and share your experience? Maybe you have some useful tips or thoughts about this website. If you don't have better things to do this long weekend maybe you can sit down in front of your computer and tell me: Who are you?

Enjoy your weekend and take care!

Hello everyone!
How are you today? I hope you are o.k.
As you know, one of the effective way to improve your English is listening to the music. You can learn new words, idioms and most of all improve your understanding.
Be careful! There is a disadvantage in this method. A lot of songs contain many grammatical faults, so don't take everything for granted.
Below you find few songs especially for Wednesday.

Have a good one!

Hi there!
There are at least two reasons to read.

First of all:
“Without literature, life is hell.”

“I often carry things to read so that I will not have to look at
the people.”

Don't you sometimes have the same thought when you get up in the morning?
“How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so? ”

When I keep up with the news or looking back at our history:
"The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship you don't have to waste your time voting”

I'm trying to be non-judgemental, not prejudiced, but often it's easier said than done. Afterwards I recall this quote:
“We're all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn't. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.”

All the quotes by Charles Bukowski.

Enjoy reading books this summer!

Take care!

How are you doing? Thanks for clicking on my blog. Last weekend I watched a really nice movie. I would like to recommend this film. It has been on of the best movies I've seen this year so far. Check it out, maybe you will enjoy it as much as I did.

If you are not in the best mood because you are broke, split up with your partner, can't wait for your holiday or whatever - this short clip may cheer you up.

Take care!
