So, you've learned how to read, write, and understand English. But truthfully, it's hard for you to compose a proper response during a conversation. Often, you find native speakers of English giving you a confused look after you finish telling them something. Try following these steps to improve the flow of your future conversations.
First of all I thought the article was interesting. However, Mark, I would have to completely disagree on the pauses you have recommended to place after a conjunction. No one speaks like this, and I mean no one. You might slow down a little when describing the products, and emphasise the descriptive words, but you would never in casual conversation pause - people will most likely interrupt you. I think the pause in the second sentence isn’t needed and also is poorly timed. You wouldn’t leave the sentence hanging there. If anything you are likely to pause after “ This is a great product (pause), because it’s small and light. I hope you don’t mind my opinion on the article, but I really can’t support what you have said and I think it’s not how natives speak.<o:p></o:p>
For me, this article is very helpful. I find that the first and the second steps are relevant to my current situation. I realize that when I speak to others, I tend to make people confused because I have difficulty in arranging ideas coherently.
The second step (ten words per each sentence) is definitely worth to try need to be practiced. When I am nervous, I tend to speak long sentences. It feels like I want to finish the conversation by putting all the words in just one sentence. And that often makes me get a confused look from native speakers.
Vlad, I bring up your mistakes because you made some basic basic mistakes but still felt yourself above the article and asked if it was aimed at infants. It's a shame you cannot see the irony.
You stated as fact:-
"He should have been aware that every man who starts learning foreign language first he does is buying a dictionary or even several dictionaries."
"They are absolute fact that is vindicated by all experience of humanity for many years."
I hate to disappoint you but buying products is not wordly knowledge. It's not an experience of humanity, there are many people in humanity who have never bought a thing, or own very little.
I took issue with your inflammatory language and challenged your facts. Again casting aspersions doesn't help your argument.
