BelajarEnglish - Posting Guidelines

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/belajarenglish

 

 

Please kindly read the following guidelines and adhere to them strictly:

  • Emails must be related to learning English language. Other emails - chain emails, business opportunities, etc are not welcome here. Please look for other groups more suitable for that purposes.

  • Emails must be in English. We come from different countries - Malaysia, Mexico, China, Turkey, USA, etc - all with different languages. Our only main purpose here is to learn (and teach) English.

  • Please be very careful when expressing your opinions. What you find acceptable might hurt the feelings of other people who have different cultural backgrounds. Be extra cautious with generalizations and references to race, religion and gender.

  • Personal attacks are not permitted. If you have something to say that is relevant only to the person, please send your message to him/her only.

  • DO NOT SHOUT. IN EMAILS, CAPITAL LETTERS MEAN SHOUTING.

  • When replying to a message, please don't quote the whole of the original (unless it is extremely important). Delete everything that is not relevant to your reply.

  • Very short emails (e.g.. only one line) are not encouraged. Although short messages are perfectly OK, they should always be meaningful.

  • Do not send your unsubscribe request to the list. Nobody is interested in a message that only says "Unsubscribe me". You can unsubscribe automatically by sending an email to BelajarEnglish-nomail <at> yahogroups.com or BelajarEnglish-unsubscribe <at> yahoogroups.com. When you join a mailing list, you have certain responsibilities as well as rights - unsubscribing yourself is one such responsibility.

  • If you have any comment or point to add to this message, please send it to belajarenglish-owner <at> yahoogroups.com
     

Thank you.
Ibrahim Abdullah.
 

 

 

How to delete part of an email.

  • Whenever you press "REPLY", previous email would be displayed in the BODY PANEL. You can turn this feature off, depending on the program (software) you are using. Body panel is where you write your message is.

  • To delete the old message, you can simply press "DELETE" until the message is deleted. To delete the whole message, press "CTRL-A", i.e.. press key "CTRL" and key "A" together. You can see that the whole message is now selected. Press "DELETE".

  • You can also select which part of email to delete. Use your mouse. Put the cursor at the beginning of the part to be deleted, press your mouse key (left side). Do not let it go. Pull the cursor to the end of the part to be deleted and let go of the mouse. The required part to be deleted is now selected. Press "DELETE"

Hello my dear people hope u be ok

just writing to tell you that slang is good to know but some time is not good use.
for example; if u are talking with some one who doesn’t have a lot of knowledge in English, and u think that u can be smarter, clever let me tell u that u wont, instead of that u will be like a little fool cause u have to start explaining what do u mean using simple words lol, so the conversation will lost the sense lol, so use natural English at last the thing is to be understood, just that

Command of Chinese and English  !!!


Benny Sometimes you would have to write the instructions yourself, and other times, you would have to translate the English handbook into Chinese. This task requires you to have a strong command of both Chinese and English. Would you be able to do this ?
Eliza I’m confident of my language and writing skills, and of my computing abilities, so, yes !
Benny I think you are a strong contender for the position. Thanks for coming in today. We will be in touch.
Eliza Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you. Goodbye.
Benny Goodbye.

Explanation :
 

Command - a great knowledge of a subject and an ability to use that knowledge

 
Example : She has an impressive command of the English language.
