  46. adam says:

    well, my name is adam i’m from morocco , marrakesh and today we’re celebrating the holiday of Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) also known as ‘Eid al-Qurban or al-‘Eid al-Kabir. On the first morning of Eid al-Adha, Muslims around the world attend morning prayers at their local mosques. Prayers are followed by visits with family and friends, and the exchange of greetings and gifts. At some point, members of the family will visit a local farm or otherwise will make arrangements for the slaughter of an animal. The meat is distributed during the days of the holiday or shortly thereafter.
    During the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham’s trials, by themselves slaughtering an animal such as a sheep, camel, or goat. This action is very often misunderstood by those outside the faith.

    Hi every body,

    Hot news in Vietnam! Vinashin is a well-known Transportation Group in Vietnam about lost in business in many years ago. This group is a state-owned group so that Management of group had been floated and not supervised strictly. This group have lost in business many years ago until now it is discovered. Now there are a lot of agurments about remaining this group. With total debt of Vinashin is 80.000 billions dong if the group is bankrupcy, thousand of workers will be lost job. It means that the life of these wokers’ family will be dificult. Even if Prime Misniter has not had any decision about this group yet.
    I hope that Goverment will supervise to the state-owned company strictly in order to avoid problem like Vinashin. Some managers’ lack of responsibity in the state-owned company have afected to the state budget.
    Development of country is afected by all economic sectors espicially state-owned company.
    sincerely

  51. Hoa Truong says:

    Today is my special day because I have been America for three years.I reviewed my English,what things I learned and I had.I recognized that my English is progressive slowly.I always feel listening is very difficult for me.When I work together with Americans,I often don’t understand what the said and I can’t pass a listeningtest to move a next level,too.So sometime I am very frustrated and I want to stop learning English.Now I am finding a new way fiting with time availabe at me.How about you? Maybe I need an idea from the people have a lot of experiences about English.Bye eerybody

    • Thanh Nguyen says:

      Based on what you wrote, I think you are young. Try your best to be more patient in order to adapt with your life. America is an active social and if you don’t try your best you can not get success. As for me, you should try to watch tv everyday. It makes you bored at first but day by day and step by step you will feel happy with your progressive in listening. I was in America for 4 months last year and I tried to watch tv everyday and now I still watch cnn/bbc everyday and I feel that my listening is better than before. I hope my opinion can help you a little bit.
