English class

Assalamualaikum and hi especially to my blog and other blogers..i would love to share about this article that i've taken from this will help you to improve your knowledge in English..

When you hear about something in advance, you get notice or information ahead of time. Advance also means to move forward or to make progress. Advance can also function as adjective, as in the case of “an advance payment”, which means payment made ahead of time/before hand.
When you say something is advanced, it means “complex or sophisticated” and should not be confused with the past tense form of “advance”.
Note: We often see advertisements use “Advance Level”, which should be “Advanced Level”.

A, B and C are called letters of the alphabet, NOT alphabets. Alphabet is a character set that includes letters and is used to write a language.

When “awhile” is spelled as a single word, it is an adverb meaning “for a time” (“stay awhile”); but when “while” is the object of a prepositional phrase, like “Lend me your monkey wrench for a while” the “while” must be separated from the “a.” (But if the preposition “for” were lacking in this sentence, “awhile” could be used in this way: “Lend me your monkey wrench awhile.”)

To “back up” is an activity; “back up your computer regularly”; “back up the truck to the garden plot and unload the compost.”
A “backup” is a thing: “keep your backup copies in a safe place.” Other examples: a traffic backup, sewage backup, backup plan, backup forces.

Most of the time the word people intend is “compliment”: nice things said about someone or praise.
Complement, on the other hands, means supplement each other or making something complete.
e.g. vs. i.e.
“e.g.” is the short form for exempli gratia, and means “for example”. “i.e.” is the short form for id est, and means “that is”. Use “e.g.” when you want to give an example (or several examples) of something just mentioned. Use “i.e.” when you wish to explain briefly or to clarify what you just said, or say the same thing in other words.

A principle is a formulation regarded as a basis for thought or action. For example, the principles of liberty.
A principal is the person you see in schools, who leads the school administration. As an adjective, “principal” means “foremost, first, primary, main”, as in “the principal reason I am here is …” or “the principal cause of this phenomenon is …”

Contrary to normal rules of English, the single ’s’ in loose is pronounced like an ’s’ – as in wearing trousers that are too loose. Lose on the other hand, relates to loss – for example: “I hope we don’t lose this game”. A good way to remember this is that in the word “lose” you have lost the second ‘o’ from loose.

Students often use “I was very boring at the party”. It should be “I was very bored at the party”. Adjectives that end with -ed talk about one’s own feelings, whereas adjectives that end with -ing talk about a person, a thing or a situation that causes one’s feelings. Examples: The movie was boring (so I felt bored). My boyfriend has a very annoying habit (so I am annoyed).

Irregardless is an informal term, which is technically incorrect. The suffix “-less” in regardless has already indicated the meaning of “without”. By adding “ir-” as prefix (means “not”), it creates a “double negative”, which shows the opposite meaning instead.

Life is about to give

Either you offer help or you need help..
life relate to both...
To people you concern or someone you can count on...
I've no idea coz i need those...
Do not wait for a help IF,
you can solve the matter by your own BECAUSE..
you will look so pathetic...



Anyone who needs it..
With what???
Anything that you have..
Not necessarily...You have 
  ARMS to protect
  LOVE to care
  WORDS to sooth
  BLOOD to save a life
  Those will do....even a SMILE could help to..



Allah loves you when...
   - you give more without asking for benefit in return...
   - you help with sincere and full-hearted..
   - you pray for other's good..
Believe me..
HE will give you ten times benefit when you give only once...
A help that you can't anticipate...
From any angles of the world...



My heart tells me something...
  " As a girl you're fragile and delicate "
    you're so soft easily wounded...
    However, you're not merely a girl as it is
    You are and individual that Allah has created to perform His mission...
    Therefore, you need to stand up to be strong...
    As to compare with a man, physically, both are slightly different.
But what does differences make
It wont stop you to contribute something to your religion...


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن تَنصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ
"Hai orang-orang yang beriman, jika kamu menolong (agama) Allah, niscaya Dia akan menolongmu dan meneguhkan kedudukanmu. " (47:7)


Change your thought instead of 'what will i get' to 'what should i give'
Do not hesitate to give..

To be continued...
