This sounds really nice to pronounce.

Anyway, please what country and culture is this language from. Your location states U.S.A.

I think it will be nice to also know the country.

Hi! Sorry, I forgot, that is a Filipino Language. I'm a Filipino living in the US, and still proud of my national language Tagalog

and native dialect Visayan. :hugging_face:

Kudos to you Sheena! Proud Filipina! :heart_eyes:

I am curious... how does the tower grow in summer ?

When some materials are heated they expand, that is why the tower grows, the metal expands :)

The largest cells found in nature are ostrich eggs. Before fertilization, the entire interior of the egg consists of a single cell, which can weigh up to 5 pounds.

Are their eggs the biggest?

If you liked that, watch the movie Brick. Very cool, and "smart".

Love Brick - but, man, even as a native speaker, it was hard to follow that dialogue!

where can I find that Brick movie?

I love Breaking Bad, I think it's one of, if not the best show of all time.

Still haven't started Better Call Saul, but I'd definitely recommend you to start with Breaking Bad.

Watch Better Call Saul, this series is related and happened first before Breaking Bad. It's a nice one too! :+1::skin-tone-2::raised_hands::skin-tone-2:

That's true they dont recognize it, because marriage is holy. That's why it's hard to teach sex education in the Philippines as well, which I thought is important.

In the 1980s, Pablo Escobar's Medellin Cartel was spending $2,500 a month on rubber bands just to hold all their cash. :scream:

When I ask you to cite something, I mean I want you to post a link that confirms it. Cite is short for citation.

She is probably more generous than Ellen, but I could be wrong.

that's what I thought :hugging_face:

Ganoon talaga ang ibang pinoy, kapay may mali sa ingles nila, minsan nilalait at pinagtatawanan imbes na tulungan ang kapwa.

I've been reading articles about backpackers blogs on how they earn to travel, some of them have a certificate for passing the TOEFL and they're able to teach english classes in the UK & Asia to support their needs, it's motivational & that's what inspired me to travel.

I’m not sure, but I think if you pass the TOEFL, you can teach English language to some other countries like UK, Australia and some other countries in Asia.

I took the IELTS for a 1 yr. class but did not proceed with the assessment. Next time, I will just take the TOEFL instead. I was able to go abroad in the US for my internship without any language assessment, the filipino agencies are the only ones that are strict about it.

No, you need to take all the 4 skills. And Ielts is no joke it is expensive.

English language is global and the most common language spoken in the world. It's just that I am confused why other countries/jobs require you to take IELTS before you go abroad/get hired, even if you will not use all the different techniques, as long as you can communicate and understand others, there won't be a problem.
