Food & Fitness • Re: Do you like cooking?

I loveeeee cooking!! Cooking is one of my favourite things to do! I prefer baking because is easier but I love making meals too! Normally every weekend I make a cake or some cupcakes for the week. Saturdays usually I make pizza for dinner and while we eat we watch a series or film! Some friends friends say me to cook or bake for them because they say that I do it very good, but I don't think so, 'cause once the frosting melted. :lol:

General Discussion • Re: Teaching English to Chinese Students

I've been teaching English many years to global students e.g. China, Vietnam, Nepal, India, Korea, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Uzbekistan, Myanmar, France, Belgium, Turkey, Japan etc. Unfortunately (no exaggeration) I've found the Chinese students to be the worst students I've ever taught period. I've tried ESL worksheets to match their levels, Chinese/English textbooks, numerous topics to try and kindle their interest, using what little Chinese I know to build a bridge, speaking Japanese to explain grammatical points (I'm fluent and their level is quite high) But all they want to do is play Mahjong on their smartphones, sleep and ignore everything I try. Aside from their complete lack of interest in any kind of study they are rude, obnoxious, vulgar and have absolutely no respect for the teachers regardless of who it is. Ask them any kind of question linked to learning, try to gently engage them, and they'll purposely ignore you with their heads stuck in their app games and simply refuse to answer. Basically they're telling me to ***k off. Probably less than 1% will study and it's always women. The best analogy is that they act like prison inmates. I guess this is what a Communist education system produces? Any tips re: teaching English to the Chinese?
You must be fluent in english; have excellent communication and interpersonal skills; be creative and energetic; and be passionate about teaching students english.

Help Each Other with English • Re: Is it correctly spoken "Yesterday snowed in my country"?

Totally agree with darcy.

The most idiomatic is simply: it snowed

It snowed yesterday
Yesterday it snowed
It’s snowing now
It’s been snowing for three hours
I think it’s going to snow
It will probably snow tomorrow

Help Each Other with English • Re: Is it correctly spoken "Yesterday snowed in my country"?

'Snow' is commonly used as a noun and a verb. All the following are correct in spoken and written English:
Yesterday snow fell in my country.
Yesterday there was snow in my country.
Yesterday it snowed in my country.
Note that you need the word 'it' in front of weather verbs, for example 'it rained', 'it poured with rain', 'it snowed'.
