“If you adapt to a new situation, you change your ideas or behavior in order to deal with it.”

Did You Know?

Rooted in the origins of “adapt” is the idea of becoming specifically “fit” for something. English speakers adapted “adapt” in the 15th century from the French adapter, which itself traces to the Latin forms aptare, meaning “to fit,” and aptus, meaning “fit” or “apt.” Other descendants of “aptus” in English include “aptitude,” “inept,” and of course “apt” itself, as well as “unapt” and “inapt.”

Examples of adapt in a Sentence

 When children go to a different school, it usually takes them a while to adapt. She has adapted herself to college life quite easily.

How to excel in Speaking Fluent English?

British School of Language Best English Speaking Course in India Lucknow

There are three aspect of learning to speak English.

  1. Environment

  2. Practice

  3. Guidance

Let’s understand it with the help of an Example. Let’s take an example of a new born baby, the same baby if born in America, speaks English very well. If born in China, speaks Chinese very well. If born in North India, speaks Hindi very well. The example highlights all the key aspect of learning a language.

  1. Environment- Environment refers to the surrounding you reside in, If you live in an environment where most people speak good English then you are more likely to speak better English than any other language. It is same with the baby as well, the baby is born in the surrounding where most of the people speak good English, Hence the baby gets the proper environment to learn English. It is well said that “You are the average of five people you spend your most of the time with” which directly reflects the importance of a suitable Environment.
  2. Practice- As the famous proverb goes “Practice makes a man perfect.” It is true with almost everything in the world and the same goes with speaking English or any other language. In order to speak fluent English You will have to practice it as much as possible, never miss any opportunity to speak English, the more you practice, the better you speak. Now let’s hop into the example of the baby. From the day baby starts speaking, he continuously practices. All the word that comes out of his mouth is not 100% correct, the sentences are broken with little or no grammatical sense but yet the baby never stops practicing. He practices it to the extend where he speaks proper English with correct grammar.
  3. Guidance- Speed is irrelevant if you are going in the wrong direction. It is true with all the aspects of life so as English. Above mention aspects are of less use if you don’t have the third one right. If you get the suitable environment for speaking English and practice it as much as you can but have no one to guide you along the path to speaking correct English then you won’t be able to make it. When you start something new, you tend to commit a lot of mistakes and then learn from it to improve yourself at it but you need someone to guide you along the path who could highlight your mistakes corrects them and make sure that you don’t repeat it again. And this is the part where most people make mistake, they think that they will be able to make it all alone and they need no other guidance. If

Now if you are really serious about learning to speak fluent English like a native speaker then we suggest you to join one of our courses where we provide you a certified language trainer who will provide you hand holding support, the right guidance, the right material, the required environment and a lot of practice.

Two childhood friends, both were best friends in childhood and both were also nebhiour or classmates . One day teacher said you are good girl your work is too good but teacher didn’t say about good her friend so second girl anger that time and second girl since then compare with her friend. She was started comparing with her friend all time that girl whatever done her friend also done same thing like same dress same shoe and more other things. Which was not good for her but she done always. One day due to comparison, second girl did very bad action or thing and for that mistake teacher punished that girl.
Actually people want to compare with everyone they don’t think what am I doing? Actually comparison is not good for anyone but people compare with everyone specially who person rich , celebrity. And now time comparison crage increasing day by day, everyone doing this thing. And now time opposition parties are comparing with our prime minister .
If we compare with anyone so loss will be ours always . And it’s good ex- who people compare with our prime minister so our prime minister doesn’t have any impact on him . And I want to tell you with everyone We never should compare with anyone.and please don’t compare with anyone or specially our prime minister because he is one of the best and No-one can’t compare him with anyone. Because due to comparison loss is always ours.

Arrogance vs money

Shivangi Nath

Is money all that money does in today’s world for man, man for money and why does the thinking of man change with money? In this scenario of today, we learnt that for money makes a man proud slowly, and that vanity increasing so much that man considers himself to be the top of the world and even he tries to lower from himself. In today’s time as a human being is heading for money, so is the inferiority complex feeling to each other waking up in there mind
*) how is it happen-
First of all at some point in our life we all are arrogant l found that people most often are arrogant, I find this is very common in People when they talk about money there are many people in the world of money, arrogant people share many characteristics associated to advance themselves, often at a cost to others
*) what solutions should be-)
First of all people have to think that people are important in life because everyone’s life in filled with ups and downs. But some thing should not change according to time, not the whole person. Because the importance of the person and people in our lives is more. The person loses everything in the affair of arrogance and money. Then after a long time they realise and understands. So before the arrival of this situation, go ahead and take care of all these things and do not take care yourself and don’t.

Why the girls are problem

Sakshi Chuhan

“What! Problem ? What am I saying and how can I say that being a girl is problem??” something weird
and shocking right? But it’s true.
Don’t be rude, don’t speak too much , don’t be loud, don’t be stubborn, try to be perfect wife, daughter,
sister, don’t wear short dresses, don’t apply dark lipstick, don’t go outside at night.
Don’t, don’t and don’t. We have to hear these things each and everyday. Why ?? Because we are girls
and we should stay in our limits. Really???
Since the time we born to full of the life we have to fight for our safety, education, and rights . And wait
wait….before all these things we have to fight for our birth at least let us come to this beautiful world
and see the entire universe and beautiful creations. And after that we have to fight for our safety from
one breath to last. even we are not safe in our own house, how can I expect it from our society ,city,
country and this entire universe .
“ Beti bachao beti padhao” this statement prove that we need to save girls and educate them. Why we
need to save them ? Why are we treating them like helpless and poor .I’m not saying It’s wrong or I’m
against if girls are being helped. But the thing is that have you ever hear about “ save boys and educate
boys” never ever. So why girls need to be saved who are these people who create this kind of
mentality. So first of all we need to change our mentality that girls are also a human being and have
equal rights to live their life by their own rules.
When the midnight local arrives in andheri station all the women climb into it because women are
allowed only one compartment after 11pm. So what do you think that after 11pm women don’t leave
their houses and don’t go outside. That’s why they are allowed only one compartment and who cares if
that one compartment is not sufficient for them. every day we are being judged by our makeup
,dressing sense, the way we talk ,the way we behave.
In India everyone can accept rape cases easily but they can’t accept love marriages. Why anyone
Doesn’t show their the same aggression for rights of girls and when rape happens in spite of showing
their aggression on love marriages .
All I want to ask that where the hell is my existence and all we want to live , to be free, to fly, and to
love and that’s all. And so stop being judgmental . Let us live by our own choices and decisions.

Importance of healthy life

In our day-to-day life, we all always keep on talking about having a healthy body and eating healthy. But on an important note, we all must have healthy mind. Everyday people face different problems and for most of them they are unaware of the solution. People regret about different things in life, breakdown at failures, have a stagnant mind and in most of the cases, stand blank about a situation. Just like we want our body to support us and work with 100% efficiency so that we can make the best of our work, in the same way we must have a healthy mind who is ready to face problems, is ready to learn, to stand up again at breakdowns and is full of ideas so that whenever we face a problem or any situation in which we want 100% efficiency of our mind, our mind should support us.
Every other amazing things people have done so far was just started with proper ideas, a proper strategy and planning. Just imagine, if we could have such amazing things in life if the right idea would have struck our mind at the right time. Hence, there is a great requirement for a healthy mind.
Having a healthy mind doesn’t only mean that we are full of ideas but that we use our mind correctly at the right time. The first step in bringing about a change even in the smallest aspect of life is to accept and learn. Learning is what makes a big difference in a person’s life. If we keep on learning from our mistakes and from other people’s mistakes, we start growing. But learning about certain things might be easy but learning about dealing with life is not a destination, it’s a lifestyle. One important aspect of learning includes learning about different perspectives. It gives us more that one way of dealing with problems. Learning about different perspective is not what we can acquire from books, but by being a good listener. If we totally involve ourselves in what the other person is trying to say, we can easily get some ideas about the thinking capability of the other person. Hence, by being a good listener can actually teach us dealing with problems with more than one way.
Another important quality that mind needs is to be full of ideas. The most simplest and the only way to make our mind more thoughtful is to read books and listen to podcasts. Books enable our mind to get into deeper imaginations and to learn about different things.
Here concludes how we can control our mind and have a mind which is full of thoughts. Another thing is to have a calm mind. Having a calm mind is the biggest weapon of a person. A calm mind enables us to look at the situation with proper perspective and then find a solution. And the greatest tool for making our mind calm is meditation. Hereby it concludes that a calm mind, full of ideas and information and a lot of perspectives and knowledge about life situations and a healthy attitude is what makes a mind – A HEALTHY MIND.

I said

Sachin. I knew that you are my best friend you can’t neglect me you are too kind
I. Ya OK stop buttering
So is it unilateral or bilateral
Sachin. We love to each other
I . so let’s meet her and what do you want from me
Sachin. I don’t have dare to give my number to her
I .till you didn’t give number to her and you are saying that you both are in love how it is possible
Sachin . actually when we meet then we talk typically
I . OK so I should make a plan for it
Sachin. Yes
So after getting all information I have made a that when she would leave the Tution on Saturday then I would give number to her
Sachin . yes it is great idea
I . yes
Now on Saturday we went to Tution classes and at the time of class end she was stepping down from the ladders and as I move towards her for giving number she said father and when I listed it I stopped myself and I saw a man who was around fifty five with long white beard and along with chetak scooter
And he was chewing pan he was looking too dangerous
But I promised sachin that I would give number to her at same day so I have done little bit change in plan and she has sat at the back seat of scooter and she went
But we have started following her and at time of movement when my bike and her scooter were parallel then deliberately I collided my bike to her scooter and we fell and in between sachin made her father busy in his clap trap and then I took out the chit and I kept it in her bag she accepted it but we don’t know that how he came to know this that he did something with her bag so he asked us that what you did with my daughter’s bag
Then her Daughter said that they didn’t do anything from my bag they are good people and they and they are also my classmates
Father. OK OK I know very well about these type of people so let’s go
After three day sachin got call from her and they both they both have started charting with each other
Then I am also felling relax that and I became busy in my daily chores
One I got call of sachin’s father she was very upset and he said that sachin got caught by police and now he is in the jail
I didn’t get the matter so I went to police station and met to sachin then he told me that everything is going bad to him his girlfriend has committed suicide and her parents logged the FIR against him that’s why he is in the jail and when I came to know that they both were wanted to get marry but their parents were not agree with it for that social pressure she committed suicide eventually sachin got punished for 10 years bcz he was juvenile
So the moral of story is don’t think is that love is blind love has also four eyes of both partners so don’t be like novice be aware from each and everything
Thanks to you all

Undermining the value of parents

Respecting elders it is the symbol of India and it is also a symbol of our civilization and these things we learn from our parents as a tradition and culture but now a days we are undermining the value of our parents .
Owing to there are increasing cases of elderly abuse and the question arises that who so this and why so for getting this thing I would like to share a story
Once upon a time there was a woman she lives in Mumbai in galaxy apartment at fourteenth floor and her husband got died now she had only son who was in abroad for his higher study and he use to talk his mother everyday and after completing his study he got the placement in same country and then he has started talking to her mother once in a week and gradually this ratio increased now he talk to his mother once in a month and then it reached to once in a year
And in between his mother asked him many times to picked her up with him but because of some hectic schedule he always use to procrastinate this particular wish of her mother and his mother didn’t like it but she never told him and where there she lived that place cost was around twelve cores of flat and she had made for daily household
chores and one day she made a call to his son and she said that she is unable to do the work and she forced him to carry her and cater her so at that time her son promised her that he would come and bring her with him and he put off the phone and time has passed and because of hectic schedule he forgot the things and after six months he remembered his promise which he made with his mother and for giving surprised he reached India and he went to his home but what he found nobody was opening the door he knocked the door many times then he called the police and police came then police broke the door and what they found that his mother got died in sitting posture at chair then that boy was very amazed that how would it be happened and after the postmortem report he came to know that by the hungriness and thirstiness she died
So by this story I would like to tell you that how parents plays vital role in our society and how we are cruel towards our parents . do we know that how many old age homes are running in India it is in huge quantity but it is uncountable that whatever member are living in those old age homes why is this uncountable number are there just because of we are too greedy and too selfish like A parents can feed ten children but ten children can’t feed one parents because it just pertaining to the state of mind when we can’t give respect to those who give birth to us so we are not able to call human and how can we forget the sacrifices of our parents towards us and the people who do this they think that they are preserving their future but they are wrong because of as you do you get same because if you consider you parents as burden so your child will consider you same owing to children learn what they see so don’t think that what you are doing it will give you peace may be for while you can get but in long duration you will have to pay for your this blunder so in the peroration I would like to say that if you do bad so you will have to face repercussion of it so always love your parent don’t treat them as a burden they are your experience they can help you in every aspect and love them now time has come we need to change our mentality our parents want only love they don’t need money they want respect and it is our duty to obey them and respect them

The virtue of honesty

Sakshi Tiwarri

Honesty means performing one’s duties with integrity. This is the best quality of mankind that leads man to the path of good. Change is a constant process with the passage of time everything goes on changing. We have experienced such changes in our day-to- day life, eating habits and our thinking patterns ….. However ,there are certain things that remain unchanged . The intact & unchangeable thing is ethics or moral discipline we call honesty . Yes, honesty adheres to in our life with the belief that it is an important aspect of human character.
Deviating from the same causes harm to both the individual an society as a whole from childhood most parents teach their children to be kind, generous and honest. It is so because these are great human values .In the absence of such qualities individual cannot make progress and family and social relations cannot flourish. Honesty is interpreted in various ways for some it is a religion .The word honesty denotes being trustworthy and loyal, whatever the interpretation the prime objective behind observing honesty is selflessness and maintaining cordial relations in family and society. Honesty is a discipline that enriches a person with purity whereas dishonesty is the outcome of polluted minds so it is always better to choose purity over pollution and making living worthy ..These is no other virtue that can replace this great human virtue …honesty teaches a person to respect self and be genuine to others.
In today’s time, honesty is ending and people want to live by killing others.
