  • Word of The Day

    :wave:

    hihi, let's learn english here. or any language. please do provide explanation as well. and don't be shy...nobody is going to judge you...simple word also can....somtimes we are not sure of certain words and we never try to bother to look up the dictionary....and


    we assumed its meaning....most of the times even if its correct. but we better be sure ya? lets learn from each other!!


    (start this thread because i want to learn more words! haha my english not very good)

    Some words that i've learnt when i was much older haha:

    1) procrastinate: to keep delaying something that must be done, often because it is unpleasant or boring

    2) meticulous: very careful and with great attention to every detail:

    (i think that listing it out will create a better impression and you'll learn better? and also won't PROCRASTINATE to search in the dictionary!!!! haha...so gals if you come across any...just post it up! )

          Word of The Day?


          disenfranchise

          To disenfranchise a group of people means to take away their right to vote, or their right to vote for what they really want

          eg. the helplessness of disenfranchised minorities
