Today I went to a fashion show at a club.
There I could be present on the realization of friend's dream.
She was perfect on the catwalk.

And... that was the first time I participate of it.

I am sure that most of you have heard about the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and the disaster that it is causing along the Gulf States. :cry:

Today I volunteered to assist in the mitigation and cleanup of the oil that is coming ashore at this time on our beautiful white beaches. :cry: Hopefully I can make a small difference.

It's very hilarious.. today i forgot to go to my English course! :O
Idk what happened... yesterday it was a holiday and today we didn't have class so I thought it was Sunday today (even knowing it was a Friday). I like NEVER miss my English classes :/
And well, on Fridays I teach English to my siblings! :D (with a board, markers and all that stuff :D haha)

Thanks for your kind words.

How about saying: "This morning I had a calculus at college."

I think it works better this way.

Nothing special so far. Yet yesterday I broke away from the hold habit of not yielding at all to other motorists in the usu. happy-go-lucky traffic of Recife-PE. This motorist politely requested his right of way and I promptly slowed so he could pass me. I look forward to helping people out in the near future... if the near future helps.

My reply should have been: "This morning I had a calculus class at college."

I have to slow down and read what I write! :oops:

Maybe We could have written AT the garulhos's airport or AT the airport of guarulhos!

I think it is the better way to write that sentence.

Waterfox,

I think a slightly better construction and choice of words could be.

"Today my friend and myself took the quarterly test (or examination).

Today I made a appointment in the dentist... :lol: :lol:

w.slayman 110
Betto,

In my opinion it would be better to say, "Today I made an appointment to see the dentist." or '... appointment with the dentist."

In English "in" implies inside, as "in the house" would mean "inside the house", and while the dentist may put his hands in your mouth, I would hope you do not do the same with him or her. :lol:
