Well….Could be better. The more I live the more I know!

It certainly has been a long trip to the land of hope. After years of suppression and prosecution, I had to flee to the place that I had only read about before in newspapers. They said my ideas didn’t comply with the society’s views and common beliefs. But did they…

University students should wear the uniform.

It’s well-known that at the majority of Russian Universities the uniform is not obligatory and students may wear whatever they want within the confines of ethics. But the truth is that the casual dress code has a negative impact on students. So it’s necessary…

Hi, everyone!

I just wanted to say that this time it was utterly difficult for me to choose a book I’d love to read, and it took me a lot of time because I longed to read non-fiction (btw my first one in English). However, I wasn’t sure that I…

Hi, I’ve just had some practice on Memrise, and here’s my progress

Hi! I’ve recently had my first experience of studying new sophisticated vocabulary on Memrise, and it was fun and really useful! I picked up a few advanced courses including Hard Words for GRE, IELTS 8.5 , and SAT Comprehensive, so you can see my result on the screenshot (I don’t know if it’s enough for 30-minute practice, but still).

So, now I’d love to share my three favorite words from Memrise with you!

  1. Canard=a false or misleading report, especially if deliberately so
  2. Mendicant=begging, living on alms
  3. Antidiluvian=Out-dated,Archaic, Obsolete
