Today I`ll start my dairy. I want to practise my English with it. Sometimes I will write here about my thoughts, sometimes about my feelings, sometimes about some things which will be happenning in my life. So it is a personal diary, but it will be written in English. Moreover, in each diary record I will write something with usage of some words, which a new or rarely used for me.

I greet everybody who wants to read this diary.
If you see mistakes somewhere, you are wellcome to point on it. If you have your own English diary, I`ll be glad to read it and correct your mistakes, if you want and if I find it :)

I`ll start with a short description of myself and my relationships with the English language.
I don`t want to write my real name here, but let`s think that it starts with the letter "K". You can call me like my nickname here - Kice :)

I am studying on second year at the Pedagogical university at the faculty of foreign languages. I learn English and French. My English is quite good (but I want to impove it anyway), but my French is too weak even to write some note like this in French. It`s OK, because I started to learn French less than one month ago - so I belive,in future it will be much better :)
I am also studying in Economical university and have a course of business English there. In fact, I`m not a good student in this university, and I have to retake my student debts tomorrow. I am not good in business English. This is the area of language that I know the worst. But I also want to master it.
Last year I started to be a tutor for some students, who don`t know English better than on pre-intermediate level. At the moment I have four students. Three of them are school pupils with the biginner level and one is adult with the elementary level.
To talk about me, I suppouse, my level is upper-intermediate. Some tests say that it is advanced, but I highly doubt about it :) I will belive it when I have CAE. I want to take an exam for it next year. So this year I should try to rise my level to advanced, fill in the gaps in my knowledge, practise my skills in speaking and writing and expand my vocabulary, especially activ vocabulary. It is one of the most important reasons why I have started this diary :)

To talk about other spheres of my life, which are not connected with the English, I work in the marketing department of the building organisation. In my free time I dance, play role games, organise some entertainment events and visit some theatres. As you can see, I have a lot of activities in my life. I can`t say, it is very good. It takes a lot of time and effort. To be honest, I`d prefer to live in a small villidge without so much opportunities, but I live in Moscow and can`t resist it - at least for now.
I`m twenty years old. I live on my own since I was eighteen. I can`t say that I have many friends, but I have great amount of people with who I communicate for some projects, for our interests or for some other reasons.

That`s all for now. I`ll write soon something about my life, but at the moment I am going to bed - I haven`t slept this night. Write something about you at the comments, please.
Bye ;)

Hello, K.ice. I've found your post in the community of search and was very interested :) I thought about some simular recently, but my vocabulary is too small for it, although I study English all my life (my mam is the teacher and adores England and she want I will be bilingual, but I'm too lazy for it). Well, at least, I understood all this post without help of Google-translator))) And I'll glad to read further.

Write something about you
Well, something I already have written... maybe, I also must say, that I'm the (or "a"? I have a big problems with articles and grammar) philologist, studying in the Esenin's university in Ryazan. I also dance and play role games. And sing, and trying to do needlework, and listening all kinds of music that I found... enough, perhaps.

K.ice,
if you don`t want me to point on them, please, say that and I won`t do this anymore
No, I want you to do it. Maybe then I'll stop making them.

I find (or "have found" - depends on what do mean)
Find)) I just forget that this vorbe is irregular.

Tell me, please, where is the difference between simular and similar, and why should instead of must?

2015-01-30 в 12:46 

Ледяная тень, the reason for the usage of "find" is not that it is irregular verb - it is because of tense. If you want to say that you listen to all the music that you find generally you will need Present Simple there, and if you want to say that you listen to all the music you have found before, you`ll need the Present Perfect :)

vorbe you mean "verb", I suppose;)
And I just forget I have just forgotten

For the "simular and similar" I`m sorry, maybe, I`m not right. No one dictionary said me something clearly about the word "simular", but this word is in some of them - so it can be correct, I`m not sure.

To say about "should instead of must" - we can use "must" for situations when we must do something according to the law or for situations when we talk about our guesses, for example, "The light in the house is on, there must be someone inside!". Here you write about something that, from your point of view, you should do. Don`t you?

Thanks, I understood it. And Present Simple is better here, besause continues to this day.
"Verb", of course :facepalm:

I asked my mother, she say "similar". However, фиг с ним (sorry, I don't know a similar English expression))).

Yes, I do)) Thank you again.

I already interested, how many mistakes I have did done in this comment :laugh:

Hi! I've seen your post in "exactly" and became interested in your blog :3
I think it's a really great idea to write here in english - I've tried it once, but my laziness is much stronger than me :facepalm: Though I hope that one day I would start it again. Maybe just because of your diary and your motivation)
I would follow you with pleasure if you don't mind. Good luck!

Я не стану делать тебе больно, потому что боюсь, что не смогу остановиться.
K.ice, hey-hey! I'm your new follower) It'll be cool to read you here.
And let me introduce myself (ahahah, like in a school topic «About myself» :laugh: ). My name is Sasha. You can call me Sasha, or Chii, or «hey you!», or not to call at all. I'm 24. I've been studying English since I was 4 (before school, at school, at the unversity, now by myself), and my level is also upper-intermediate. Well, ok, the level of my written English is upper-intermediate. And the level of my spoken English is «London is the capital of Great Britain». :-D I can't speak. Almost at all, because I'm too nervous while speaking. But I love English language. And I'm a tutor, too) My students are children of 3rd and 7th grade.

As I said in «exactly.», I don't write in English in my diary. But, anyway, I invite you to have a look at my Deserted town and maybe you'll find smth interesting.
Have a nice rest of the day!

Hi there!

I am from the community. I don't write in English (some of mine long-time friends on this site are French and German students, and it will be impolite to write a lot in a language they don't know and won't be learning any time soon), but I'm always looking for more practice, so I'll friend you ))) Well, sometimes I post lo-o-ong sheets in English, but they are fandom-related things only, so I can't recommend them to absolutely anyone.

As you're asking to tell you about your mistakes - you need to pay more attention to your articles and put more effort into avoiding Russian grammar structure in your sentences. It is especially so for your latest post. Otherwise I think your English is pretty good )

Hi! As a lot of people there I saw your post in "exactly", so i'm here))) I'm gonna read your diary and comment some posts because it's a good traning and a way to make new friend at the same time. In respect of my own diary I use it once in a blue moon)) So I'm not waiting you subscribe me :rotate:

2015-01-30 в 22:23 

Фоернутый меломан, Thank you! I`ll be very pleased if my diary motivate someone to do something useful :)

Chii Motosouwa, Hi! Glad to see you! I`ve started to learn English when I was 3 years old. Quiet the same age as your :) And my students also are from the 3rd class and older. I promise, I`ll come to see your diary as soon as I answer to all the comments and u-mails :lol: To be honest, I`m really surprised to see so much of them!

Lariday, I am happy that my diary is something like an implementation of your searches! My timetable is very busy, that`s true. But I can`t say it is really difficult to mix two universities, it is more difficult to mix them with work and hobbies. But I can`t afford myself not to do some of these activities, because I want to do them - and it is really important for me :)
And a bit of your mistakes (if you don`t want me to point on them, please, say that and I won`t do this anymore)

Firesong, Nice to see you!
Well, sometimes I post lo-o-ong sheets in English, but they are fandom-related things only, so I can't recommend them to absolutely anyone.
For which of fandoms are they related? If they are about something I have ever heard, it will be interesting for me to read them, I suppose.
you need to pay more attention to your articles and put more effort into avoiding Russian grammar structure in your sentences
I`ll be very greatful if you point on each of my mistakes (for example, by use of quoting)! But thanks a lot even for this recommendation!

Очепятка, Hello! I`ve subscibed you anyway :) I`m glad to see you in my diary!

K.ice, For which of fandoms are they related?
Harry Potter (I am working on a long AU story and type-telling bits of it to my muse. It so happens my muse is English-speaking, sooo... I am also getting tons of active practice this way) and Hobbit-related.

if you point on each of my mistakes (for example, by use of quoting)
Will do ))) It's just sometimes I answer from my phone and using quoting there is a headache. But when I get to my laptop, I'll do it.

And yes, I will be grateful for my mistakes correction, too. I feel very unsure in some verb tenses, for example...

Very interesting! I'd like to write in English as nice as you, but I can't. My knowledge is good for reading, not for speaking or writing essays, but I'll try, because I like this language. Also I should apologies for my present and future mistakes, because my grammar is awful)

What kind of dance? Is it ballroom?

you write so light and easy, that I want much more your posts to read))

2015-02-06 в 18:43 

Firesong, Oh, then it is really great, because I like Hobbit very much - it is one of my favourite books, and Harry Potter is a bit interesting for me too.
Okay!

Ёрж, Hi! Yes, first of all it is historical dance - that was danced on balls some centures ago :) And also a bit of classical, native and performance dance.
Thank you, I will write more :)

Ah. Then you'll find Hobbit ones here: humgat.diary.ru/p196330761.htm (with links to other ones) and here: humgat.diary.ru/p202513521.htm
(Warning: mentions of slash, so if it's not your cup of tea - better not to go there)
No mistake correcting there, please, it's unedited logs often told on the go, so some typos, bad grammar and wrong choice of words are inevitable and in general are known to me. ) I am just too lazy to proofread it afterwards.

2015-02-06 в 19:08 

Firesong, I`m not keen on slash, but sometimes can read somethimg like this.
Ok, I think, I will read it tomorrow and will pay no attention to mistakes there :)

K.ice, oh, nothing explicit. It is a summary of a story, not a story itself. So no details, just people being in... all kind of weird relationships, actually. And JRRT is sadly lacking in female characters, especially if we don't include Silmarillion ) And I don't like inventing OC (original characters) for relationships with book characters. I am a fanfic inventor, not an original stories writer )))
