    • The English Room

      hi everyone|e
      am here to suggest the foundation of an English Room in here. The name may seem a little bit odd, but i thought as one of the fundamental reasons of this saha’s existance is to improve our level in English, then this would be a good idea. Everyone could use this room to post anything that he or she think would be useful for others to know. For example, some interesting new vocabulary, or any such thing that you would like to share with others. I really hope that everyone welcomes the idea and I should be back soon with my first participation in [COLOR='00BFFF']T[/COLOR][COLOR='09B4FB']h[/COLOR][COLOR='11A8F7']e[/COLOR][COLOR='1A9DF3'] [/COLOR][COLOR='2391EF']E[/COLOR][COLOR='2B86EB']n[/COLOR][COLOR='347AE7']g[/COLOR][COLOR='3D6FE3']l[/COLOR][COLOR='3D62E3']i[/COLOR][COLOR='3454E7']s[/COLOR][COLOR='2B46EB']h[/COLOR][COLOR='2338EF'] [/COLOR][COLOR='1A2AF3']R[/COLOR][COLOR='111CF7']o[/COLOR][COLOR='090EFB']o[/COLOR][COLOR='0000FF']m[/COLOR]|a:D
    • endurance, you are right in what you've said:D, however, i just wanted to gather all what have to do with english learning in one thread. There are many topics that deal with this, i know, but i thought that if someone wants to post something useful to learn about english, he or she can do it under this topic. This would make it easier for everyone to find such things. Beside, if someone wanted to post something and because it was little or lets say, not much, he or she wont hesitate to post it under this topic. This way we would all profit from what ever little or huge knowledge everyone else have;):P
