Доброе Утро – Вера Брежнева

3189599927932e8a8421ddd537fda14d

Доброе утро, мои родные люди.
Доброе утро, всем тем, кого вы любите.
Доброе утро, и день пусть добрым будет.
Дыши свободно и проживи в любви этот день.

В темноте можно видеть, что хотел –
Что невидимо при свете и не встретится нигде.
В темноте можно падать и лететь,
Не боясь прикосновения обнажённых душ и тел.

Но когда поднимается солнце над внезапно притихнувшим миром…
Когда слов недосказанных нет – наступает рассвет!

ПРИПЕВ:
Доброе утро, мои родные люди.
Доброе утро, всем тем, кого вы любите.
Доброе утро, и день пусть добрым будет.
Дыши свободно и проживи в любви этот день.

Никогда не уйду и не отдам.
Всё проходит в этом мире, только это – навсегда.
Не отдам, пусть не гаснет никогда,
Над твоею головою Путеводная Звезда.

Но когда поднимается солнце над внезапно притихнувшим миром…
Когда смысла в молчании нет – наступает рассвет!

ПРИПЕВ:
Доброе утро, мои родные люди.
Доброе утро, всем тем, кого вы любите.
Доброе утро, и день пусть добрым будет.
Дыши свободно и проживи в любви этот день.

Доброе утро, мои родные люди.
Доброе утро, всем тем, кого вы любите.
Доброе утро, и день пусть добрым будет.
Дыши свободно и проживи в любви этот день.

It’s My Life

“It’s My Life”

This ain’t a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain’t gonna be just a face in the crowd
You’re gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud[Chorus:]
It’s my life
It’s now or never
I ain’t gonna live forever
I just want to live while I’m alive
(It’s my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I’m alive
It’s my lifeThis is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow’s getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain’t even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

If you learn conditional, you’ll be glad

We use conditionals to show that something is true only when something else is true. Conditionals offer endless possibilities for creative and imaginative expression.

Present real conditional

The present real conditional is the most basic kind of conditional. Basically, when A happens, B happens.

Here’s an example of a present real conditional:

“If it rains, I bring an umbrella.”

Conditionals have two parts: the if clause: “if it rains,” and the result clause: “I bring an umbrella.” You could also say “I bring an umbrella if it rains.”

Poets and songwriters often use conditionals in their work. Listen for the present real conditional in this song by American songwriter Bob Dylan.

“If you see her, say hello. She might be in Tangier …”

Notice that the verbs see and say are both in the present tense for the present real conditional.

Present unreal conditional

The next conditional that we’re going to talk about is the present unreal conditional. Use the present unreal conditional to talk about what you would do in an unreal, or imaginary situation: If A happened, B would happen.

For example, “If I were you, I would take the job.” The key word is would; it makes the conditional unreal. Would can only be used in the result clause of the sentence. Here’s an example from American singer Johnny Cash.

“If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?”

To form a present unreal conditional, use a simple past verb in the if clause. In the result clause, use would followed by a simple present verb.

Use the verb were for all nouns in the if clause of the sentence. For example, “If she were an animal, she would be a cat.” In informal speech, people might say, “If she was an animal, she would be a cat.” But you should avoid this in formal writing.

Future real conditional

Now let’s talk about the future real conditional: If A happens, B will happen.

To make a future real conditional, use will in the result clause. For example, “If your plane is late, I will wait in the car.” Use the future real conditional to talk about possible situations in the future.

Speakers sometimes use the future real conditional to threaten others. Listen to actor Liam Neeson in the 2013 movie “Taken.” In this scene of the movie, Neeson’s character is on the phone threatening the man who kidnapped his daughter.

“If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you. I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.”

Toastmasters Club for Spoken English Mastery

928076258

Since I joined the Toastmasters Club a month ago, I have heard many members say that the key motivation for them to join Toastmasters is to improve, develop and advance their English skills. And I heard it yet again last night. Therefore, I decided to upload the speaker’s speech in her own words below.

By the way, the good thing about Toastmasters is that you can attend any club meeting as a Guest as long as you want, without having to make a speech, become a member or to pay. So isn’t that a good enough reason to try it at least once?

 

My Heart will Go on

Music brings us feelings of appreciation, love and beauty. It takes us to a different level of motion.

“My Heart Will Go On”

Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you,
That is how I know you go onFar across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go onNear, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go ’til we’re gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we’ll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You’re here, there’s nothing I fear,
And I know that my heart will go on
We’ll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Grammar of the Day – 14.03.16

Do you wish you knew better grammar? I DO. 

In English, wish is a powerful word for expressing your dreams, hopes and desires. Here are some examples:

       We wish you the best.

       Her mother wishes they would get married. 

       I wish I had brought my camera.

       I wish to speak to the president. 

You will often hear wish in music, movie dialog, poetry and inspirational speeches. Let’s take a look at some of the tricky grammar issues with wish.

A wish is a desire for a different reality. In general, wishes express desires that are unlikely to happen. If you say, “I wish I could fly,” it means you probably will not grow wings and learn to fly.
