  1. I am an kinesthetic learner. In order for my to memorize things I have to write them down multiple times. It has never failed me. Thanks for sharing this.
  2. It's a great way to lean new things, no doubt. I wouldn't say it's a pleasure compared to fiction books, but it's always good to read. I would, however, prefer to read fiction for pleasure.
  3. This word is honestly stupid. I refuse to ever say it, since it's so stupid.
  4. I too have difficulty spelling "tomorrow". I could have sworn my elementary teacher taught us all to spell it with two "m" ending up looking like this "tommorow". I usually catch myself, but I've been writing it that way for too long now that it's a habit.
  5. I don't even consider this word an actual word. It looks and sounds stupid. I'm not going to lie, I have taken numerous "selfies".
  6. I consider myself a pretty fast reader, but when I was a kid I could read even faster. Reading was my hobby back then, so I would read books all the time.
  7. I would have to say that learning one language at a time is the better option. Just like that old proverb: "slow and steady wins the race". If you concentrate on one language at a time you won't mix up meanings, pronounce wrong, etc. It's basically multitasking and you don't really concentrate when doing that.
  8. I usually watch movies with subtitles on. Mainly due to the fact that the chips that I am munching on make too much noise for my to hear what the actors are saying. Also, if something gets said to fast for my understanding I can see what was supposedly said.
  9. I found another one. I can say it correctly the first time, but the more I say it I am prone to just screw it up. "Sheena leads, Sheila needs"
  10. I'm notorious for misspelling "tomorrow". I don't know why, but I always put two "m"s. I think I grew up doing it that way in years and no teacher ever caught it. I'll see the spell check error when typing, but when i'm hand writing i'll miss it for sure.
  11. One word I never get to use is "tapestry". This was my first word in my first Spelling Bee so it stuck with me ever since. Tapestry is more synonymous to medieval times and I never have any conversations about that era. I guess I will have to just keep the word with me as long as I live.
  12. My English class uses a lot of example from this site. It has helped me a great deal in understanding many things. It's a great site, and I suggest anyone to use it.
  13. I get a little worried, but nothing that's overboard. I usually always do good on tests and I rarely fail them. As long as I study even just a little bit I will do just fine. To be honest, I just pray before any test. It calms me down and allows me to fully concentrate and take the test.
  14. Those are some classic tongue twisters. Here's one I always have trouble saying: "Seven selfish shellfish". It gets me every time. I can't even get it down to this day.
  15. I see myself as a pretty fast reader, and I can read it aloud at a fast pace as well. I guess the more you read, the faster you read the text. Sometimes you can just breeze through it and not even understand what you're reading. That happens a lot with me.
