Be a nicer person. So simple and easy. Great, that doesn't help much, or does it? It may seem so obvious, but are you nice to people? You may assume you are. It's easy for anyone to just assume this. It's not like someone wakes up, and decides I am going to be bad to people just for the heck of it. Truly think about how you act to others in general. Do you tend to be rude, impatient, inconsiderate, or not think how others feel, think, or what they say? How do you generally act toward others? Sometimes being shy easily gets mistaken for being rude, or not being very nice. I know it's not real fair, but it's easy for a lot of people to assume. Learn to understand and relate to what others think. That's a better way to evaluate how you've treated them. That's what I've learn to do and it works. Sometimes I've not been very nice to people, when I truly didn't mean to be.

آدم مودب تری باشید.خیلی ساده وراحت باشید.سوال مهم این است،آیا زیاد به دیگران کمک می کنید یا نه؟ممکن است این موضوع خیلی مشهود بنظر برسد ولی آیا درنزد مردم دوست داشتنی هستید؟ممکن است پیش خودتان تصور کنید که دوست داشتنی هستید.پی بردن به این موضوع ، فقط برای کسی که پیش خود تصور می کند دوست داشتنی است، آسان است.این دوست داشتنی بودن نیست که شخصی از خواب بیدار شود وتصمیم بگیرد که: من می خواهم بامردم بد باشم، فقط برای اینکه آنها از این موضوع حساب ببرند.درباره چگونگی رفتارتان در جمع،صادقانه فکر کنید.آیا دوست دارید که خشن باشید،آیا مایل اید بداخلاق و بی ملاحظه باشید ، یا نه، فکر می کنید که دیگران نسبت به شما چه فکری می کنند ؟فکر می کنید نسبت به شما چه احساسی دارند و چه چیز پشت سر شما می گویند؟معمولن بادیگران چطور رفتارمی کنید؟گاهی اوقات به آسانی خجالتی بودن با خام بودن ویا نه با خیلی مودب بودن اشتباه گرفته می شود.من می دانم که خجالتی بودن زیبایی واقعی نیست،زیرا تصورش برای بسیاری از مردم آسان است.آگاه شویدکه دیگران به چه چیزی فکر می کنندو آن را برای خودتان بازگو کنید.این بهترین روشی است که متوجه شوید با دیگران چه رفتاری داشته اید.این چیزیست که یاد گرفته ام انجامش دهم واین روش موثر است.گاهی اوقات،وقتی که صادقانه می خواستم که برای مردم دوست داشتنی باشم ، خیلی دوست داشتنی نبوده ام.

Showing more of your personality. I think a lot of shy people don't come off as lovable. It's not because they aren't, it's just easy for others to make assumptions. They think they are just not real friendly, where it's not true. They are just a little nervous and not real comfortable. Really there's no reason to not be more outgoing. People are extremely receptive to this trait. You don't have to worry about embarrassing yourself, because you in fact are making them feel comfortable and more receptive to you. Don't be too aggressive and outgoing though.

همواره بیشتر شخصیت تان را درمعرض نمایش قراردهید. به گمانم خیلی از آدم های خجالتی به عنوان آدمی جذاب مطرح نمی شوند. این مسئله اتفاق نمی افتد زیرا آنها این طور نیستند،زیرا برای دیگران تنها تصورش آسان است.درجایی که خجالتی بودن پایدار نماند،مردم تنها فکر می کنند که اینگونه افراد مهربان واقعی نیستند. مردم فقط پیش خود فکر می کنند که اینگونه افرادکمی عصبی هستند و واقعن راحت نیستند.مردم پیش خودفکر میکنند که دلیلی وجود ندارد که این گونه افراد همواره بیش از این در ارتباط برقرار کردن از دیگران پیشی نگیرند.مردم بشدت این ویژگی را می پذیرند.شما نباید از خجالتی بودن خودتان نگران باشید،زیرا شما درحقیقت دارید کاری می کنید که آنها نسبت به شما احساس راحتی کنند و پذیرای شما باشند.درعین حال زیاد پرتکاپو نباشید و از محدوده شخصیت خود خارج نشوید.

Being funny and showing more humor. I don't want to hear that you do not have a sense of humor, or funny side to you. Everyone of us do. Everyone is capable of laughing and enjoying others in that regard.

همواره شادی بخش باشید و خودتان را شوخ تر نشان دهید.نمی خواهم ازطرف شما بشنوم که استعداد خنداندن یا بامزه بودن راندارید.همه ما این استعداد را داریم.هرکسی به نوعی توانایی خنداندن ولذت بخش بودن برای دیگران رادارد.

Loosen up a bit. Don't be so uptight all the time. If you're constantly being a bit of a safety freak, or always concern about every little consequence. It can be a uncanny problem and not really bring fun around. I understand that consequences are important for the most part. I'm not suggesting you should go off and rob a bank or anything crazy like that.. Don't be afraid to have a some fun and live. Sometimes it's okay to do things you aren't really suppose to do. It's actually healthy. Don't be such a by-the-book kind of person all the time.

کمی رها باشید.همیشه زیاد رسمی نباشید.اگرذاتن شخصیتی کمی وسواسی هستید و یا همیشه نگران اتفاقات خیلی کوچک هستید.نگرانی می تواند مسئله ای جدی  باشد و واقعن نمی تواند شوخی را به بار بیارود.قبول دارم که اتفاقات در بیشتر جاها مهم هستند.من به شما پیشنهاد نمی دهم که باید فاسد شوید و به بانکی دستبرد بزنید یا هر دیوانگی شبیه به این... نگران کمی شوخ بودن و سرزنده بودن نباشید.گاهی اوقات خوب است کارهایی را که واقعن نمی پندارید انجامشان دهید را انجام دهید.واقعن این کار خوب است.همیشه شبیه آدم های مهربان درون کتاب ها نباشید.

Being a good listener. Being able to listen to others problems and offer gentlemanly advices. Nothing better than being a good listener, which attracts a lot of people to start to trust you and depend on you more. Sometimes talking constantly is not necessary. Know when to be quiet, and when not to.

همیشه یک شنونده خوب باشید.همیشه آماده گوش دادن به مسائل دیگران باشید وتصمیمات نجیبانه ای پیشنهاد دهید.هیچ چیز بهتر از یک شنونده خوب بودن نیست،زیرا  بسیاری از مردم را وادار می کند که شروع کنند به اعتماد به شما و بیشتر به شما وابسته شوند.گاهی اوقات لازم نیست مدام حرف بزنیم.آگاه شوید که چی وقت باید حرف بزنید و چه وقتی نباید حرف بزنید.

 Positive attitude. Don't always be dwelling on the negative things in your life. Don't always talk about everything that's going wrong. I've said this numerous times in articles I've written. If anyone is actually a regular reader to them, they are probably getting tired of me sounding like a broken record. Having a positive attitude will get you a lot of things in this life. It will do more good for you than you'll realize. Give it a chance. Learn to smile more, laugh, and just be a positive person. People pickup on these vibes.

مثبت گراباشید.همیشه بر اتفاقات منفی زندگی تان متمرکز نباشید.همیشه راجع اشتباهات،صحبت نکنید.من این موضوع را بارها در مقالاتی که نوشته ام گفته ام:اگر کسی واقعن یک خواننده عادی باشد ،شاید از صدای من که شبیه به ضبطی قراضه است ،خسته شود.با مثبت گرا بودن چیزهای زیادی در این زندگی بدست می آورید.مثبت گرایی کار ها را از آنچه که درک می کنید خوب تر انجام می دهد.آن را شانس بنامید.یادبگیرید که بیشتر لبخند بزنید و بیشتر بخندید،و فقط آدمی مثبت گرا باشید.مردم این ارتعاشات را می پسندند.

Be different than others. Like I explain at the beginning of the article. Do not follow the logic of being more like others, to be loved more. That's the opposite way to do it. Because if you try to fit in, you aren't recognized. You are just like everyone else then. Stand out, be bold, brave and different. That's the most special gift god gave each one of us. We're all created equal, but different. He didn't clone us all. So stand out and be who you really are. Do not do what you think seems like the popular choice and follow this article.

بادیگران فرق داشته باشید.شبیه چیزهایی که در شروع مقاله شرح دادم باشید.برای جذاب تر بودن از منطق دوست داشتنی تر بودن دیگران تقلید نکنید.اگر این کار را بکنید بر عکس عمل می کند زیرا اگر سعی کنید از دیگران تقلید کنید شناخته نمی شوید. زیرا آنوقت شما فقط شبیه دیگران می شوید.ایستادگی کنید،باشهامت باشید،شجاع باشید و متفاوت باشید.این مخصوص ترین هدیه خدا به هریک از ما ست. پس استقامت داشته باشید و واقعن کسی باشید که هستید. کارهایی را که خیال می کنید به نظر می رسد مردم پسند باشد را انجام ندهید و از این نوشته پیروی کنی

This music is by Leonard Cohen, Every body knows. Here I have written the lyrics and if you want to download it click here.
Everybody knows that the dice are loaded 
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed 
Everybody knows that the war is over 
Everybody knows the good guys lost 
Everybody knows the fight was fixed 
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking 
Everybody knows that the captain lied 
Everybody got this broken feeling 
Like their father or their dog just died 

Everybody talking to their pockets 
Everybody wants a box of chocolates 
And a long stem rose 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows that you love me baby 
Everybody knows that you really do 
Everybody knows that you've been faithful 
Ah give or take a night or two 
Everybody knows you've been discreet 
But there were so many people you just had to meet 
Without your clothes 
And everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 

And everybody knows that it's now or never 
Everybody knows that it's me or you 
And everybody knows that you live forever 
Ah when you've done a line or two 
Everybody knows the deal is rotten 
Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton 
For your ribbons and bows 
And everybody knows 

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming 
Everybody knows that it's moving fast 
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman 
Are just a shining artifact of the past 
Everybody knows the scene is dead 
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed 
That will disclose 
What everybody knows 

And everybody knows that you're in trouble 
Everybody knows what you've been through 
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary 
To the beach of Malibu 
Everybody knows it's coming apart 
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart 
Before it blows 
And everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows

1.  Third conditional

 

"If I would have known about the party, I would have gone to it."  

 

This is INCORRECT, although commonly used, especially in American English.

The correct form is:

If + had + past participle, would + have + past participle

"If I had known about the party, I would have gone."  

This is CORRECT.


2.  Don't vs Doesn’t

"He don’t care about me anymore."

This is INCORRECT.

Doesn't, does not, or does are used with the third person singular - words like he, she, and it.

Don't, do not, or do are used for other subjects.

"He doesn’t care about me anymore."  

This is CORRECT.


3.  Bring vs Take

"When we go to the party on Saturday, let’s bring a bottle of wine."

This is INCORRECT.

When you are viewing the movement of something from the point of arrival, use “bring”:

"When you come to the party, please bring a bottle of wine."

This is CORRECT.

When you are viewing the movement of something from the point of departure, use “take”:

"When we go to the party, let’s take a bottle of wine."

This is CORRECT.


4.  Fewer vs Less 

Sign at the checkout of a supermarket: “Ten items or less”.

This is INCORRECT.

You can count the items, so you need to use the number word “fewer”.  These nouns are countable.

"Ten items or fewer."

This is CORRECT.

If you can’t count the substance, then you should use “less”.  These nouns are uncountable.

"You should eat less meat."

This is CORRECT.


5.  However

"We were supposed to go to the dance last night, however, it was cancelled because of lack of interest." 

This is INCORRECT.

A semicolon, rather than a comma, should be used to link these two complete sentences:

"We were supposed to go to the dance last night; however, it was cancelled because of lack of interest." 

This is CORRECT.

It should be noted that there ARE situations in which you can use a comma instead of a semi-colon:

"The match at Wimbledon, however, continued despite the bad weather."

This is CORRECT. 

There is only one complete sentence in this example.  It is not a compound sentence.


6.  Have vs Of

"I never would of thought that he’d behave like that."

This is INCORRECT.

It should be would have:

"I never would have/would’ve thought that he’d behave like that."

This is CORRECT.

It’s the same for should and could:

"He should of come with me."

This is INCORRECT.

"He should have/should’ve come with me."

This is CORRECT.

"She could of had anything she wanted." 

This is INCORRECT.

"She could have had anything she wanted."

This is CORRECT.


7.  Double negative 

"I'm not speaking to nobody in this class."

This is INCORRECT.

Since 'not' is a negative, you cannot use 'nobody' in this sentence:

"I'm not speaking to anybody in this class."

This is CORRECT.


8.  Present perfect

"He has took the train."

This is INCORRECT.

The correct form for the present perfect is:

would + have + past participle

* "He has taken the train."

This is CORRECT.


9.  Went vs Gone 

"I should have went to school yesterday."

This is INCORRECT.

The correct form is:

should + have + past participle

"I should have gone to school yesterday."

This is CORRECT.


10.   Its vs It's

"Its going to be sunny tomorrow."

This is INCORRECT.

It’s is the contraction of It is:

"It’s going to be sunny tomorrow."

This is CORRECT.

"What’s that?  I can’t remember it’s name."

This is INCORRECT.

Its is a possessive pronoun that modifies a noun:

"What’s that?  I can’t remember its name."

This is CORRECT.

Speech Fillers (Pause Fillers / Oral Fillers) are parts of speech which are used to fill in empty spaced in your speech. You might use fillers when you need to think about a word or how to wrap up your sentence. Fillers are usually expressed as pauses such as uhlikeer and well.

Linguists believe if your speech is peppered with pause fillers, it disrupts the enjoyment of your presentation and the appreciation of your message. However for most people, pause fillers do become somewhat of a ‘plague’ when left unchecked. They give the impression that the speaker is lacking in confidence and ill-prepared. Hence it is imperative that we strive to minimize them as much as we can.

A Complied List of Pause Fillers:

But (non-connective)
I think
I mean
You See
You Know
Ahs
Umm
Lahs
Well
Actually
LoL (laughing)
Yeah
Right
Alright
I guess
And (non-connective)
Say (non-connective)
Basically (non-connective)
Ers
Erms
Others (Dialects)
Arhs
Ahs
Uh

To sell short literally means to sell at a loss. However, idiomatically, to sell sb/sth short means to underestimate the real value and ability of sb/sth ! 
For instance,

"Don't sell your students short--they are just shy and don't show off their knowledge"

"This is a very good restaurant. Don't sell it short"

"When you say that John isn't interested in music, you're selling him short. Did you know he plays the violin quite well?"

'Who'd employ me at my age?' 
'Don't sell yourself short! You're intelligent and you've got loads of experience.' 

"She doesn't succeed in interviews because she always sells herself short."

palindrome is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of units that can be read the same way in either direction

Examples:
Don't nod
Dogma: I am God
Never odd or even
Too bad – I hid a boot
Rats live on no evil star
No trace; not one carton
Was it Eliot's toilet I saw?
Murder for a jar of red rum
May a moody baby doom a yam?
Go hang a salami; I'm a lasagna hog!
Satan, oscillate my metallic sonatas!
A Toyota! Race fast... safe car: a Toyota
Straw? No, too stupid a fad; I put soot on warts
Are we not drawn onward, we few, drawn onward to new era?
Doc Note: I dissent. A fast never prevents a fatness. I diet on cod
No, it never propagates if I set a gap or prevention
Anne, I vote more cars race Rome to Vienna
Sums are not set as a test on Erasmus
Kay, a red nude, peeped under a yak
Some men interpret nine memos
Campus Motto: Bottoms up, Mac
Go deliver a dare, vile dog!
Madam, in Eden I'm Adam
Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo
Ah, Satan sees Natasha
Lisa Bonet ate no basil
Do geese see God?
God saw I was dog
Dennis sinned

Can you make your own palindrome?

According to Longman English Grammar (G. Alexander), nouns with the same singular and plural forms, some nouns do not change in form. These include:
- certain nouns describing nationalities e.g., a Chinese, a Swiss, a Vietnamese
He is a Vietnamese

This grammar book introduces an example: Nakamurasan is (a) Japanese.
So "a" is optional.

BUT when we have a separate word for the person, "a/an" is mandatory - My brother is engaged to a Finn/Pole/Dane. (Though we usually use BE + adjective to talk about nationality: He is Finnish/Polish/Danish).

Do you ride the bus or take the bus? But 'ride' doesn't always mean 'sitting on and controlling the movement of sth'. Riding and taking the bus have the same meaning. "Riding the bus" is American English while "taking the bus" would be more usual for British English.


[chiefly North American] travel in (a vehicle or lift):
Example 1: She rides the bus across 42nd Street.
Example 2: It was a busy morning. There were many commuters riding the bus to school or work.

If you possess something you own it, it is your property.

If you are in possession of something, it is more likely that you have it on or about you at the time spoken of. It may or may not belong to you.

Lay is an irregular transitive verb (lay / laid/ laid - laying). It needs a direct object. It means to put something or someone down (often in a horizontal position).
For example: "Lay your head on the pillow."
Lie is an irregular intransitive verb (lie / lay / lain - lying). It does not take a direct object. It means to rest in a horizontal position1 or to be located somewhere2.
For example: "If you are tired lie here and have a rest."1 
"Nottingham lies in the Midlands."2

However, in some varieties of English, some people use "lay" instead of "lie" which is not considered standard.

*Lie also means to say something that isn't true but it takes the following form (lie / lied / lied - lying).

Dare/dare to means to have the courage or impudence to do something difficult or dangerous, or something you have no right to do.

The use of dare and dare to is similar to that of need and need to. Dare is a modal auxiliary, whereas in dare to "dare" functions as a main verb.

How dare she criticise us?
I daren't think how many victims there are.
Do you dare to tell him what happened to his bike?
Don't you dare to interrupt me!

Note that when dare is used as a main verb, the to before the infinitive is often omitted:

I'd never dare (to) talk to my boss the way he does to his.
