Also by yvan125+64As a former language teacher, I submit that in order to insure a better foreign and second language learning. it is more fruitfull and rewarding to have an intrinsic motivation (love of foreign language, its sounds, its musicality,its rythm or its syntax, i,e, learning the language for its affective and intellectual value) than to have an instrumental motivation (learn a language to get a degree , a promotion or for multiple purposes external to the language itself, as a means for an extenal goal). Do you think that affectivity does play a major role in foreign or second language learning? amirite?
Also about early twenties+165"Never give up your dreams of being fake". Yeah Old Navy's target market is definitely in the teen through early twenties age range. amirite?
Also about early twenties and late teens+178your in your late teens or early twenties but you secretly watch cartoons, amirite?
Also about governor and essential-52Here in Michigan, our Queen...er...Governor Whitmer just banned the sale of garden plants and seeds, deeming them "non-essential". Hmm, no job, no money, and now no way to grow our own food. Last time I knew, food was pretty damned essential, amirite?
Also by yvan125+85Almost two years ago, in September2018 the former Apostolic Nuncio in the UnitedStates Carlo Maria Vigano called for the resignation or the abdication of Pope Francis. If Pope Francis were to abdicate today who in your mind might be elected to take over from him? amirite?
Also about life, trust, and element+160Fear really has the power to become a barrier from you doing things, but if you trust that fear is self imposed and is only an illusion then you can overcome fear and pursue things. You may succeed and fail at things in life but don't fear the chance of failure or else you will become a prisoner to the element of 'fear'. The greatest individuals of history didn't cower away from the fear of failure. They pursued things not because of the chance of failure but for the chance of succeeding. ... amirite?
Also about life, confidence, and grateful+53Jane Austen has taught siome valuable life lessons. A true, happy marriage is made up of esteem, respect, and confidence. But, surpassing these three is gratitude. For if you cannot be grateful that the person you care for loves you and stays with you through both good and bad times and loves and wants you in spite of your flaws, than what kind of relationship will you form? Amirite?
Also by yvan125+17What is the dimension of your God. When I speak with friends about religion or God , I am most of the time struck by their conception of God. It doesn't matter for some but for some others God is often considered worse than any human being, a tyran , a despot, a warder, or the worst of torturers. On the contrary some look at him as a benevolent spirit, an easy- going father, a policy insurance against the fire of hell,a fireman or a last ressort. You, what is the dimension God, in your life? amirite?
Also about life, general, and essential-60Culture, religion, and life, in general, have all imposed this one fundamentally essential concept of "respecting one's elders". I always thought respect was something that had to be earned. Yet so many undeserving people on this crummy planet receive respect and tons of deserving people get treated like shit cuz of their position/age... amirite?
Also about early and teens+295As you get older, the way you act on Christmas morning changes. When you're very young, you get up and go downstairs straight away, only having to wait for your parents. As you hit your teens, you're still excited but you don't get up as early. When you reach early adulthood, it's a fun day but you're still comfortable lying in a bit longer. And when you reach adulthood, you're the cause of the delayed present opening, amirite?
Also about recently passed+304It looks like Republicans might take control of the House. Welcome to months and months of bickering about Obama's recently passed bills, amirite?
