One year

From one year I am fighting with English by way of this blog.

I travelled in Haiti, Ivory Coast, many times in Bruxelles, different regions of Spain, probably Paris, Picerno.

I have bought a car, some orchids, wooden masks and produced a new collection of Cravates d’Afrique, multicoloured swimsuits, jewellery.

There was the evacuation from Abidjan, the Tsunami, the failure of Volare, too many kidnapping in Iraq and, last and actually least, Berlusconi’s new government.

I wonder if my English improved. For sure, my attitude towards this idiom has changed, I am more confident, the idea of having to start a note or a letter does not worry me excessively.

I have the impression I know when I am writing something wrong, but I don’t always have the capacity, time or patience to look for a better alternative.

In any case, it is a pleasant exercise. And it was not a bad year.

  1. I agree: excellent progress in your English and in the naturalness of your constructions, especially.

    You need to have another look at using the Present Perfect for the period to the present, as your first sentence doesn’t do you justice. It should read “I have been fighting … for one year …”

  2. Hello Paolo,

    Sorry for the delay in correcting your blog entries. I was in London for a family wedding for a couple of weeks.

    Hope everything is well with you. Here are my corrections.

    One year

    For one year I have been fighting with English by way of this blog.

    I travelled in Haiti, Ivory Coast, many times in Bruselles, different regions of Spain, probably Paris and Picerno.

    I have bought a car, some orchids, wooden masks and produced a new collection of Cravates d?Afrique, multicoloured swimsuits and jewellery.

    There was the evacuation from Abidjan, the Tsunami, the failure of Volare, too many kidnappings in Iraq and, last and actually least, Berlusconi?s new government.
