    Hi, Maryam

    It seems to me that I understand what you are talking about. Let me tell my story. Do you believe that in my childhood during summer vacations I often saw nightmares about going to school again – as if I’m staying in front of the board and I can’t answer teacher’s question – oh, nightmare smiley - yikes . I think something wrong was in our educational system (or with my nerve) that it gave me so negative impression. On the other hand, after graduation I started to learn different things by myself, English particularly, and I do it with pleasure and enthusiasm. So, really, why it was different in school or university? Is it because of excessively complex educational program or something else? smiley - erm

    Hi Maryam,

    One of the most difficult thing in the world is learning sometning. But if you have the right attittude and if you are ready to work hard nothing is impossible. I said you need to have the right attittude because even if you are ready to work hard you will not succeed if you don't have the attittude.

    By the way I do not think there exists a usage like 'difficultest' in english. Instead the superlative form of this word is 'most difficult'. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Hi Maryam,

    What I mean is you need to have the right attitude when doing something. In another words if you are doing something which your heart needs you have the right attitude automatically.
    Lets take an example.. Suppose you have a great opportunity to work in United States, but you don't speak English. The employer insists you must learn English otherwise you will continue at the current place, let us say in Romania. Now if you really want to go to US, you will try hard to learn English, you will start to work on it. Nobody insists you to do this. This desire is coming directly from the bottom of your heart.
    Now let us pick the second choice. You have a boyfriend in Romania and you don't want to leave him. Also he is not ready to go to US. But the company insists that you must learn English, but your heart doesn't need it. In this case it would be very hard for you to achieve your goal.

    So in the first case you have the positive attitude to learn.. Hope you would understand what I mean.

    Hi, Maryam, Ratheesh

    Certainly many things are important - educational system, teachers, parents, other pupils. I also agree with Ratheesh – very important own “right attitude”. But I think it means that one should like what he/her learn (or do in general). And I think it’s very difficult to inspire to yourself love to some subject if you know that you may be punished in some way (bad marks, loose opportunity to work in United States) if you would not learn subject.

    As for me – yes, I like learn English. And it’s easy to me to like it because I have no fear of failure. My English level is satisfactory for my work, I have no any other aim than just get pleasure to read, listen, watch English texts, songs, programs and sometimes to write here smiley - smiley Alas, it was in different way in my school years – I studied French for ten years but by now know nothing. Now I understand that it was simply waste of time – cram words just to please teacher and to get good mark. And I think my nightmare was just about that – fear of failure, certainly in my dream I wasn’t prepared to give the right answer.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Vladmir...

    you think it was wast of time learning french....

    that is exactly how I feel,but in an other language.

    in my school we were learning Arabic and I had a lot of problem with it... until now I thought Arabic is difficult so I did not learn......but when you told me ,it was not useful learning french in school ....completely changed the way I see Arabic.

    so the problem wan not Arabic,.......the ways I was thought ,were bad.

    Exactly the same as me.
    I think most of the students feel like you! The reason would be the lack of enthusiasm or motivation.
    Or maybe we like reading but there are lots of things that we like more than readin and studying. What do u think?

    it seems that there are not any difficult things.....

    it just depend to us that we like it or not........

    and my question is :

    people in this world ,always do the things that love it or not????

    Hi, Maryam

    There are plenty of difficult things everywhere, all our life is struggle with difficulties in aim to be “the best” or at least “not worse” than others. For me personally “difficult thing” is to keep writing to this message board instead of just reading and enjoying smiley - smiley

    As for your question, I think that most people in this world forced to do things that they do not love very much (or they think so).

    Best wishes,

    “difficult thing” is to keep writing to this message board instead of just reading and enjoying   And reading old messages is even more difficult! smiley - biggrin Only few Board members can do it.... It would be nice too if instead of reading I would be able to listen to the messages - like in the Voxopop smiley - biggrin
    most people in this world forced to do things that they do not love very much (or they think so).  They may do what they would like to, but they won't get any money for that smiley - biggrin
    Well, don't be too pessimistic:

    Hi, Alex

    Nice song, nice pictures, thank you for such fairy tale that may inspire children to fulfill their incredible ambitious dreams, but what about adults? Are they also should be inspired by this lovely song or their life experience would prompt them to be humble (realistic) in dreaming? In this case it would be just planning of future – no romantic at all, no overwhelming joy if “dreams come true”, but on the other hand – no tragedy if you loose – someone just was more lucky (prudent, hard-working or talented). What I actually intended to ask - is it necessarily for human to have “a dream”, “a faith” to lead productive life?

    As to reading old messages – it’s about time - there are so many materials on the Internet that I have no time to read, listen, watch. Nevertheless sometime I read some old messages and found many of them quite amusing. Still I think such reading quite useful.

    Hi Vladmir....

    in my opinion ,it is nearly impossible for human to continue with out dreams.

    some times we do not have any goal in our life but as soon as possible we try
    to find.

    Yes, yes, certainly it’s about diversity and about “public opinion” that tend to unify people to some standard – each person should look and behave in certain way – to have a dream in this our particular case. But what about all other that don’t fit in this canvas? Are they normal people or some mutants?

    There is interesting podcasts in yesterday’s World Have Your Say : “Can you bring up a child without ever lying to them?” Really, is our real world so colorless that we ought to think out imaginable world to our children – for what purpose? And when they grow up, they will tell something like that - “You did lie me about pink sail, Santa Claus, etc. What else did you lie to me?”
