Dominique Dominique | 07:20 UK time, Tuesday, 28 September 2010

Hello lovely English learners! I'm not sure, haha, but i think it's high time we said goodbye to September. I really need your help! I tried to explain to him that he had last enough, and that we really need to jump on October. But he still doesn't listen to me!

Believe me dear friend i told him! I told him that i've got a lot on this month.
I confessed it was an " up and up" month for me:

- I met a really nice family in my " learning English trip" to Bamenda (Cameroon). I found out in them my model of life.
- I have been enjoying learning English on BBC ( TV, Radio, Web) 24h/24, everyday. (Obviously again i exaggerate about 24/24!)
- I've grown. How? Dunno. But i really feel myself more matured! Yes i do.
- I've gain much fluency in English. How? Guess how.
- I didn't laugh as i did in August, but i was happier in September.
- I'm not sad at this end of this month as i used to be, when it comes to packing back to Senegal!

Do you realise all the good things happened to me that i told him? But he didn't understand! May be my English was too good, too posh?! I thing he must get down on learning English!

So lovely guys, try to explain to him that he has to leave! But don't forget, use simple words, it seems as if he doesn't understand English. Try to tell him that your month was wonderful ( i do hope it was.)
And of course! Don't change the topic! It's an emergency!! Haven't you seen that there are no smileys!!!!!

    Hello Dominique,
    at the end of every month it's time to tear the calendar on my wall, even worse, at the end of every year I have to change my calender, I suppose to you happens the same, more or less.
    But I can not tell you goodbye since we have the great opportunity to keep in touch through this blog.
    can you tell us a bit more about your country? I have friends from Cameroon in my German language school. They speak French but not English one of them became a cook, he cooks international dishes, he told me he needed three years to become a chef...his food is really tasty!
    hope to see you around ..but we still have to big days ahead of us this September!

    Dear Dommi,

    It was a pleasure to read your comments and your history, but in fact i agree with Pary. Please continue...

    Hi Dommi,

    I've returned to the city just this evening.

    I don't think you'll make me such an unlucky guy just quitting your writing right at this moment. I agree with other all that you still have enough time to say 'Good Bye'. (Right now I don't know why I remember John Denver for his '........smile for me.....hold me that you never let me go..). I think I'll be able to write on your blog for next 47 more hours. I really look forward to doing it.

    So, I have chorus with Natanael 'Don't Stop', 'Go ahead'.

    Dear Pary: Thanks a lot. I was at a field trip for official purpose. I was visiting AILA (I think you know about Aila, the devastating disaster, that severely destroyed our country) affected area, where I usually get out of network. And, I couldn’t keep in touch. It’s really my pleasure that you feel me this way. Thanks again.

    Hi dear Dommi! Hi everybody!
    Dommi! I don't feel like saying goodbye to you, not yet, even though you made it clear that it's your last post as a student blogger. Well, I want to thank you then for your writing, and interesting topics, and funny smileys (I'm going to miss them!). Please always be the way you are: young and cheerful, friendly, sociable. Keep learning and keep in touch with our community of English leaners. And yes! This month is (not was, it is still there, don't push it!:) wonderful!

    I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart!

    Dommi, don't get mad but I need to say something to Natanael. Dear Natanael! You are admirable man! You have so much love in your heart for the people you hardly got to know! It's wonderful! And I admire you for it! But it's rather a rare thing nowadays, which is sad. God bless you!

    Hi, dear Dommi: September was a happy month and not only because of the Spring that has just started in the South Hemisphere, it was happier thank to you, your companion and your blogs. You are lovely and I agree with Nathanael that you are a Winner, a succesful girl. I'm a fan of you. I hope you'll be in touch with us in the future. We'll miss you. The best for you!!!! Beatriz.

    Hi dear Dominique! Hi everybody!

    Well, it's very difficult for me to do you this favour, Dommi. If you had asked me to reason with September to linger, I would have certainly done my best and found a million things to make him change his mind. But, alas, you asked the exact opposite. I saw your entry yesterday morning and since then I've been racking my brains to remember one single reason to rush this month to come to an end. Yes, I have come up with a reason, a single one and from my point of view it's not sufficient enough - I want to go to my favourite theatre and watch a play in October (I've already bought the tickets). But! I can wait a little so actually I have no adequate reasons to hurry to say good-bye to September, especially because it means to say good-bye to you as a student blgger :'-( This September has been wonderful but that's precisely why I don't want to let him go.

    In case it's really your last post (though I hope not) I want to say "Thank you!" to you, Dominique. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, experience, cheerfulness with all of us, thank you for your interesting, uplifting and always unexpected topics. And yes, thanks for your smileys (^_*) I hope you're going to keep in touch with the BBC LE community. Anyway I'll be missing you, really.

    Good Luck!
    Nastya, Russia

    P.S. We love you too, Natanael :-) Keep in touch.

    Tell me guys! What are you talking about! I WILL NOT GO ANYWHERE!!!! I will stay! Is it a way to push me away? Or is it a way to.... oh yes i understood! You changed the topic again. Okay welldone. That’s exactly why i like you all.
    Anyway, let me just explain to you what the last topic was about: i tried to ask you what has been good or bad in this September month, and as a good supervisor, i first did it (^_’)!
    Congratulations to Pary, Beatriz, and of course our great Teacher who have been able to answer (^_^)
    I’m not going anywhere! I will just no longer be able to post some pictures but i’ll remain here! Yes yes i have resign from my “supervisor position” because i realise that this blog doesn’t need one, the students here are very stubborn. To be honest, i think it’s the best way to learn! No wonder you are the best!

    Dear Sventlana,

    Well, we're on the new month and i'd appreciate if none of us missed.

    Have an excellent weekend.

    Cheers - Natanael - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil
