I need to know what's the difference between this words:
- Tell or Say.
- Do or Make.
- Lose or miss.
- Know or meet.
I don't know it exactly, so i want we discuss about it. For example, we can begin "doing/making" sentences using the words i showed above.
The first one is:
1) I make homeworks for my students.
The second one:
2) So, my students do the homeworks.
The two sentences are corrects, so we begin to deduce some differences... between boths.
The next on is for you.

First I would like to thank Eurico blog creation and his participation.
On the other hand, I would like to propose a new rule, we have to correct us; that is, correct me if I write something wrong, thanks.
Well, now I have to introduce myself:
My name is Nuria, I’m twenty-four years old and I’m from Valdecaballeros. I studied Chemical Engineering and I’m PhD student. I don’t know if you know what PhD student means. For this reason I’ll explain you what I do.
Being PhD student is very different from being career student. I have to read a lot of scientific articles, after that I relate bibliographic data to experimental data and I try to find new experimental methods to improve the current methods. I can say “I’m researcher”; my work is very interesting but it is also a hard work. I spent eight hours in my laboratory and, the most of days, when I arrive at home, I have to treat the dates obtained in previous experimentation. Therefore I can say I’m worker and student; I working for eight hours, like a normal worker; and I do homework, like a student. Besides that, I earn, like a worker, and I’m trained, like a student. I like my work although it is hard and I'm happy!

He said that is better to memorize them in a context and not in a list, so I find this book to help us.
So, I'm Eurico, twenty six years old, from Elvas, Portugal. I was in Elvas until need to go out to continue my studies. In that period of time I played many sports, like basketball, table tennis and judo. To buy things with my own money, at the age of sixteen I started to work, in part time, in a furniture shop, selling and distributing. When I was eighteen, I needed to move to Lisbon because near Elvas there wasn't a place to study Law. I went to a public school because it was cheaper than the private. In Lisbon I stopped a little with my sporty life and consumed my leisure time in cultural activities, like cinema, theater, reading, etc. Now I finished my career and came back to Elvas to start working as a trainee-lawyer and help my father in his business of buying and selling houses. I searched for english schools in Elvas but there wasn't. So decided to went to Badajoz to learn english. In fact, I don't need it particularly for my job, but I love travel and if I know english I can go everywhere. I really like mix with other cultures too so I joined a trekking Badajoz group to improve my spanish and restarted my sporty life.
We can write about everything, without fear to be wrong. But there is one rule: we cannot write in spanish or in portuguese, all the words must be english!
The future of this blog depends on his utility. If we write a lot, it continues. If not, well... we need to find another way to help us!
