These words below are from the above programme in running order(Слова, приведенные ниже - из данный программы):

Haunted   creative ways   witch   ogre   when it comes to   ghost   spooky   abandoned   wheel    fair share  creepy location past lives   fascinating   legend   to discover   district   tv tower   area   to be linked with/to   evil spirits   rumour   century   cemetery   murderer   sorceress   remains   coincidence   outdoor   faded   gone by    mansion   added to that    to revive   to suppress   soul   to haunt   to amplify   allegedly   site   ancient   burial ground    temple   to predict   locals   to claim    dreadful headache    terrifying nightmare   afterwards   trick or treat   creepy location   tale   versus   to be based on   novella   bar   bell-tower   halls   apparently  orthodox   to bury   foreigner   separate   to drag   chain   rattle

 

Here is an assignment for you(Вот задание вам):

Отрезок с 0:00 по 02:45 и с 3:59 по 5:46 этого видео нужно написать слово в слово(verbatim/word by word), то, что там говориться.

Sorry, I don't feel like watching RT because I hate it! Let's just speak about something. Are you really planning to give 3000 to the winner?

I suggest discussing whether in the near future Google translator will replace interpreters, teachers and learners of foreign languages. And ladies and gentlemen, are you satisfied with your language studies in Mytischi? Who are the best school teachers of English here nowadays?

Hi! It's a good idea to practise English but I absolutely agree with Ромашка. Let's just speak about something! Personally, I don't want to do any tasks,even if I can get 3000 roubles! It's boring. Ромашка's idea seems more appealing.

Greetings dear Ромашка 2.0!

I do understand your feelings, but this report was filmed approximately 3-4 years ago, prior to all that political and military scrimmage breaking out. It's a really good informative video well worth watching and discussing. You don't have to, if you don't feel like it, however, you may change your mind, once you've seen it.

With regards to the Future, I am strongly convinced that there will still be some place and space for manned translations, human interpreting and teaching despite Google closing in on us. :)) You may have heard of a first unmanned(no human staff) Google restaurant  opening in Germany about 3-4 years ago. Have they expanded since then? Probably, nevertheless, the vast majority of restaurants still have waiters and waitresses, chefs and receptionists, as human touch is irreplaceable. Having robots and gadgets all over the place is not exciting, is it?! Do you agree?

Perfect! Let's go for it then, shall we? What do you think of Google taking over teachers, interpreters and translators in the long run?

Peter, I admire your English! But I should say that I don't like Halloween either. As to Google restaurants, it's quite another matter. Learning foreign languages is hard work, that is why many people will prefer not to do it if such an opportunity emerges. Anyway, Mytischi doesn't seem to speak English, does it? Where are your students? By the way, those who can't speak English could take part in the discussion using Google translator.

Good evening dear Romashka 2.0 !

Thanks for your words of evaluation! I am exceedingly flattered! :)) I quite agree with you regarding Google translator, which could help those novices joining in our conversations. By the way, Join in is used here, when some process is already underway(like our discussions) and some new people enter it. Otherwise, it would be join the band, join the conversation, join the club(without in preposition).

Now, regarding your suggestion,- I don't think my students would be fascinated to join in, as they are all busy doing their things. Nevertheless, I have already given it a try, so let's see what happens next, shall We?

Here is a subject of this week's discussion: Is SKYPE teaching winning the battle against traditional live teaching? What are the pros and cons of the two in question? Please, share your thoughts. Thank you!

Welcome to our English-speaking family! Thank you for your very valuable piece of advice! :)) I am convinced that We shall all stick to it from now on!  One little remark: English grammar stupulates that words like knowledge, furniture, milk, money, information, advice, and several others are always singular number and uncountable. I hope that's OK with you.:))

Nice to meet you here, wbif!

 

Since you don't mind some teaching, I would like to go on. Spell "I" and "English" with capital letters. Advice is a noun, advise is a verb. And it helps me (don't forget about the ending "s"). Mind your grammar and spelling.

Hi everybody! It's me again :) I see since I was away only one person has joined in. :mellow: And I'm afraid he(she?) doesn't want to continue writing as he(she?) thinks he knows English well but u both showed him it's false :angry:  :blink:  :wacko: Don't be so strict if u want newcomers here :D  Your remarks are very useful (personally, I'm for!) but some people might not want every their English word to be estimated! :confusion: Let them express their ideas as they can! :) Or u might scare away all potential participants whose English isn't perfect :blush:

Can I cycle? Oh, yes! I have cycled all my life! And I don't need any special lanes as I can cycle everywhere! :beee:  But of course I am happy our local authorities are trying to do something for me     (and you?) :) I haven't tried these lanes yet but they look good though they are too short at the moment. They say they are going to continue building in spring. And what is your opinion? Since you ask this question it must be topical for you :)

And by the way, where is Peter?? :scratch_one-s_head:

Greetings everybody!   Sorry, something came up... I have walked up and down that cycling and pedestrian track several times with enormous pleasure. Good work! Well done! The other day, though, I saw road workers setting up safety side-barriers on a stretch of track between Erisman Institute and the pond(the one next to Olympic Orient). I fear It may spoil the whole landscape. One thing, that really gets my goat is that there are too many fences, hedges and barriers in our country! Please, be careful, when cycling in treacherous weather conditions! We haven't debated on all topics yet! :))

Are you serious? How can he? Do you mean to say that our country is governed from abroad? I am  sure that Trump’s victory is good for Putin and his friends, they can count on lifting sanctions, as for Russia - it remains to be seen. We are discussing political issues in «Kak ploho zhit na Rusi» here. Why don’t you join us there, you are invited.

 

Lisa, I have recently discovered this new lane, and it really changed the landscape on the side of the river opposite Erisman institute. Many new trees and bushes have been planted there. But for cycling it’s not quite suitable, I prefer Moscow with its huge parks, long tracks and comfortable renovated streets with wide pavements.

What are your favourite attractions in Moscow, dear neighbours?

I dont want to discuss political issues at this forum,it was a joke about the connection between US elections and life in Mytischi.

In Moscow there are many places for rest-parks,theatres,museums and restaurants.

You should have put smiles at the end of this sentence))))) I felt some irony but wasn't quite sure. But why don't you want to discuss political issues at this forum? It really interests me. The evil moderators who used to bully users here are gone. What's wrong with it now?

Don't worry, Peter, as for me, I'm not a crazy biker. I like comfortable riding when the weather is warm and the roads are dry :) And in the winter I prefer skiing. And what about you? Are you sporty?

What about u, wbif? Are u fond of riding? Are u an active person?

Good evening dear Ромашка 2.0, wbif and Lisa13

I cannot convey my happiness at the US elections outcome! :)) This is a good opportunity for us to make up US-Russian ties! If Hillary Clinton had won, God only knows what we would have..... We would most likely be locked in the same confrontation with The West for another 4 years. With Trump, there is a glimmer of hope that he will be making an effort to play down the rift between Russia and USA . Trust me! If Trump says "At ease!" to EU and UK, they will lift all the sanctions against us! Do you agree?

Read this. You are gonna like it! :))
