Language Course

I subscribed to a language course -absolutely free- three days ago. It is not teaching me any language, but give me tips how to learn new language. I have passion with language. One of my dreams is to speak in seven languages. Is it impossible? No, it's possible. I do not mean to master in seven languages. What I mean is I can speak the basic conversation in seven languages. Now I can speak four languages. I'm thinking to start my fifth language next year, but still do not make a decision which language is my fifth language. My list is Vietnamese, because I born there, Chinese, because it's a biggest language in the world or French. I happy if anybody can give his/her opinion about this.

Back to the topic, here is the lesson one from the course. The author give his permission to share his article, and I want to share it with my readers...

It's a FACT!

Anyone can learn a foreign language. They can also do it easier
and quicker than they ever believed they could.

Even if you flunked languages at school, don't consider yourself
an academic, or doubt your ability to ever speak in a foreign
tongue, the truth is that you simply haven't been going about it
the right way. If you approach it correctly you WILL learn a
foreign language, and quicker than you imagined you could.

This five part mini-course will give you a start on some of the
most crucial techniques that you need to learn a language. By
the time you have finished you will be far better equipped to
learn any foreign language you choose.

We have much to cover so lets get started.

"How to learn any language, on your own, as quickly and easily as

The definitive guide to learning any foreign language.

Part 1 - Choosing the language you want to learn

Many, many people make a huge, critical error, before they even
open up their first textbook or speak their first word in a
foreign language.

They choose completely the wrong language to learn!

Some people may have the motivation of a job abroad to go, to or
a close family member or friend who speaks a foreign language and
the decision is made for them. Most people however don't have one
specific language in mind or may be unsure of which language
they want to learn.

If people don't start on the right language for them however they
are setting themselves up on the road to disaster.

A good proportion of language learners, far too many, give up
within six months of starting. Many of these quitters started on
the wrong language for them and their enthusiasm simply burned out.

It is terrible waste of time and effort if you start on a language
like Chinese, only for three months down the line to decide that
the language is too difficult and you just don't have the
motivation to put up with the difficulty level.

An experience like this may well end up putting you off starting
to learn a foreign language ever again. It's a terrible waste
because anybody can truly learn a language, but far too many
end up giving up because their approach was all wrong.

So your first step on the road to success is making sure that you
have chosen the language that is right for you.

There are two key factors in choosing which language to learn -
usefulness and difficulty level.

Usefulness first.

You have to got to ask yourself a number of questions to
determine if a language will be useful before you begin. If it is
not going to be useful then you really should choose something

You may have your heart set on learning Thai for example. You have
got to be realistic with yourself. Will you ever go to Thailand?
Will you ever get the chance to talk to a Thai person? Will you
be able to obtain books, films etc. in Thai.? Will you be able to
use Thai in you career? If you answered no to most of those
questions then you should seriously think again. If you choose a
language for nothing other than fascination you will give yourself problems.

When choosing always think about the following factors.

- choose a language where you are likely to visit the country
where it is spoken, even if it is just on holiday.

- choose a language in which you can regularly talk to people who
speak the language in question.

- choose a language that will be profitable for your career or
social life.

- choose a language where you will easily be able to obtain
good quality courses, books, newspapers and films. You would have
great difficulty with this if learning Thai.

Considering all of the above, it is always best to choose a
mainstream language rather than an obscure one unless you have a
particular reason for learning that obscure language (job, travel,
relatives etc.). Mainstream languages will always offer you more
chances to practice, better instructional materials, and a far
greater chance of success.

Mainstream languages are French, Spanish, German, Italian,
Russian, Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese etc. Choose one of these
and you can't go wrong.

Now onto the second factor, difficulty level.

It is worth noting that no language is ever too difficult for
anyone to learn. But going back to the Thai example, if you choose
Thai for mere curiosity than anything else you will have problems.
Thai is extremely difficult and if your motivation is less than
100% you will probably end up giving up.

If you are 100% committed to learning a difficult language, such as
Chinese for example, you will succeed, but if you try learn
Chinese half-heartedly, you will no doubt end up giving up.

So where possible, choose a language that is easier to learn and
you will end up having better success. You will progress more
rapidly, be able to read newspapers and converse with natives
sooner, and have an overall more pleasurable and motivated

The easiest languages for native English speakers to learn are
the Western European languages such as Spanish, Italian,
Portugese, Danish, Dutch and Swedish. French and German are more
difficult than all of those but still at the easier end of the

The harder languages are typically the languages of Eastern Europe
and other parts of the world such as Russian, Polish, Greek,
Turkish and Arabic. The very hardest languages are typically the
Asian languages such as Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese or Thai.

Overall to ensure your success on your foreign language learning
journey you have to pick a language that will be both useful and
not overtly difficult. Be sure that you are fully set in your
mind before you start and you can't fail.


We still have many more language learning tips coming up in the
next few days. See you in part 2.

All the best,

One of my readers asked me about maintenance the blog. I wrote early this month that I spend USD10 for the maintenance. In fact some people spent a lot of money for this purpose. It's like an investment. If you do it in the right way, you can get big benefit from it, and that is why some people make tones of money here, in the blogosphere.

If you are a serious blogger, you must know about Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Have a blog which get a good rank from google and other search engine is a dream for almost all the bloggers. The problem is you need the money to use the SEO. Most of the SEO are base of monthly payment, and the result is not guaranteed.

I just visit a unique site that offer the unbelievable price. iMajestic is a Southern California based company operating internationally. They were in this business since 2001 and have offered sound solutions and accountability to thousands of business. They only charge after the costumer get the result, meaning no set-up fees, no content fees, no linking fees, no SEO implementation fees, no analysis fees, no Search Engine Submission fees etc… You are only pay after you get the result you want. Is that amazing?

Among their services are Performance Based Search Engine Optimization, Pay Per Click Optimization, Distinctive Landing Page Design and Implementation, Local Search Optimization, Reputation Optimization and Management and other services. For further information, click here.

BWF Super Series Masters Finals

At the end of the year, BAM should be so proud with our badminton's player, and we share their feeling. Without China's players this competition lost some 'exciting moment', but our national give us that moment, the moment of glory... Let the pro tell us the rest...

Malaysian Shuttlers Sweep Three Titles In Super Series Masters Finals

KOTA KINABALU, Dec 21 (Bernama) -- Malaysian shuttlers ended the season on a high and in style by sweeping three of the five titles at stake in the Super Series Masters Finals that ended at the Likas Indoor Stadium here on Sunday.

Despite the absence of the Chinese players who stayed away citing fatigue, the finals provided enough excitement to keep the badminton fans who filled the Likas Indoor Stadium to the brim, on the edge of their seats with some sizzling action.

Current World number one Datuk Lee Chong Wei and former world number one men's doubles pair Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong swept the men's singles and doubles titles while Wong Pei Tty/Chin Eei Hui captured the women's doubles.

Chong Wei, the top seed in the tournament, beat Denmark's Peter Gade in straight sets 21-8, 21-16 in the men's singles final while Kien Keat-Boon Heong disposed South Korean pair Lee Yong-dae/Jung Jae-sung also in straight sets 21-18, 21-16 in the men's doubles final.

For Chong Wei who pocketed USD40,000 (RM136,000), it was the first title since becoming the world number one after the Beijing Olympics in August and also capped a satisfying end the season as he had also won the season opening Malaysian Open in January.

Though the final against Gade was a lop-sided affair, especially in the first set when Chong Wei raced to a 12-0 lead before the Danish veteran was able to break the duck, the win would nevertheless be a significant one, especially after a six-month drought of titles.

"This is a very satisfying win and my next target is to win the All England," said Chong Wei whose last Super Series title was in June when he captured the Singapore Open.

For Kien Keat-Boon Heong, beating the Koreans, ranked number two in the world and winning the title, their first of the year, holds bigger significance after coming under heavy criticism ever since emerging as the most exciting pair after winning the All England title in 2007.

The pair who subsequently climbed to the world number one spot are now languishing in sixth spot and had a miserable year which even prompted their coach Rexy Mainaky to consider splitting the duo.

For top seeds Pei Tty-Eei Hui who beat Vita Marissa/Liliyana Natsir 21-15, 22-20 in straight sets, it was their most memorable career win and first major title of the season.

"We played exceptionally well today and everything worked in favour, the drop shots, smashes all hit the target. The money would also come in handy since the Chinese New Year is just around the corner," said Pei Tty who held aloft the mock cheque for USD42,000 (RM142,000).

Meanwhile, the women's singles was won by Zhou Mi of Hong Kong who beat team-mate Wang Chen 21-14, 21-18 while Danish pair Thomas Laybourn/Kamilia Rytter Johl, the world number two, upset top seeds Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir 21-19, 18-21, 22-20 in three exciting sets.

Results (All Finals):

Men's Singles: Lee Chong Wei (MAS) bt Peter Gade (DEN) 21-8, 21-16

Men's Doubles: Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong (MAS) bt Lee Yong-dae/Jung Jae-sung (KOR) 21-18, 21-14

Women's Singles: Zhou Mi (HKG) bt Wang Chen (HKG) 21-14, 21-18

Women's Doubles: Chin Eei Hui/Wong Pei Tty (MAS) bt Liliyana Natsir/Vita Marissa (INA) 21-15, 22-20

Mixed Doubles: Thomas Laybourn/Kamilia Rytter Johl bt Nova Widianto/Liliyana Natsir 21-19, 18-21, 22-20.

I'm not play any tag game like his since the Big Bang. Believe me, it will give a big benefit to your blog, so why not join us to spread the BEAR-iuca power... The other reason for me to join this 'game' is mariuca and roxy are among my favorite's site...


Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there lived a powerful Genie Princess named Mariuca who was known throughout the land as the friendliest, most popular blogger in the blogosphere kingdom. Adored and admired by international visitors and commentators from around the world, the Genie Princess travels the blogosphere on her magical flying carpet, always looking for ways to share her good fortune with others.

Over the past two years of blogging, Mariuca has met so many new people, from all walks of life and all over the world, each one bringing a little of their culture and lifestyle when they visit and comment on Mariuca’s two sites. So on her 2nd Blog Anniversary, Mariuca wanted to celebrate with all of her international blogosphere buddies by hosting a bear-naming contests at Wishing On A Falling Star and Mariuca’s Perfume Gallery and to pass her two lucky, cuddly teddy bears along to the winners who came up with the best names.

On the opposite side of the world, from the moment Roxy (the prolific Roxiticus Desperate Housewives blogger) and her sweet daughters London and Maddie saw the teddy in his personalized t-shirt and blue muffler at Wishing On A Falling Star, they knew that he needed to come to live with their family in Mendham, NJ. The three New Jersey girls named him immediately and burst into a wonderful song for BEAR-iuca:

BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca, amazing teddy cheer.
BEAR-iuca, BEAR-iuca, we’d love you to come live here!

Mariuca received 16 possible names for the Mariuca Teddy Bear, making it hard for the Genie Princess to choose just one…then Alakazam! A bolt of lightning delivered the perfect way to share BEAR-iuca’s good fortune to bloggers around the globe. While the soft, stuffed, cuddly BEAR-iuca is on his way to live with Roxy, London, Maddie and Rex in the Roxiticus Valley, the Spirit of BEAR-iuca is racing through the blogosphere to bring happiness, holiday cheer, and beary best wishes to everyone who welcomes him into their online home and passes along the BEAR-iuca good luck charm to ten friends.

Please play along with us by following a few important rules:

1. Add your site(s) to the list once you have received the Spirit of BEAR-iuca badge of teddy bear cheer.
2. Pass along the Spirit of BEAR-iuca and his cheery badge to as many people as you like.
3. Leave a comment HERE once you’ve passed on the Spirit of BEAR-iuca.
4. Once Roxy and the Genie Princess have visited your site to make sure your links are complete and proper, you will then be added to the Master List.

Another Wonderful Saturday Evening At Taman Tamadun Islam

One of my favorite place now is Taman Tamadun Islam. My first visiting to that amazing place was on October 13, with my Hammad. I seldom go to Masjid Kristal, but do not enter the Taman Tamadun Islam since my first visit. Today I make my second visiting to Taman Tamadun Islam, together with Hammad and his cousin, Aqib Asyraf.

Like my first visiting, I spend my golden time there. For me this is a great idea from our Prime Minister, Dato' Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and our former Menteri Besar, Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh. I feel that I go to different world, which I can visit from one country to another, seeing the amazing miniature monument of the mosques around the world in my own town, Kuala Terengganu.

For my son, Hammad, what he want is 'naik-naik turun' playing at the playground. But this time he was more tolerant with me. He gave me the chance to complete 'my journey' before asking for his fun time. At the end of the golden evening, we were riding bicycle together, my first riding after 15 years maybe...

Aqib, my nephew is staying with us for 5 days. He has an interview at Imtiaz Kospint on Monday. My wife will accompany him as his parent cannot do so for some reasons. They live at Ampang, Selangor and maybe have to move to Kajang in these days. I hope Aqib has a golden evening like me and Hammad.

Another Good Posting From Ustaz Jaafar

I hope to translate this posting to English, but I can't. I still don't have ability to write anything I want in English. I give myself another one year to do that. Imagine you can write whatever you want...

Heart Bypass Surgery

I heard about Heart Bypass Surgery first time about nine years ago, when our former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad was got that treatment. Tonight I visit the site of University of Maryland Medical Center and read a very useful article about it. I found almost all the information that I want to know before about Coronary bypass surgery was answered there

Heart Bypass Surgery is one of the treatments for those who suffer from coronary artery disease (CAD). The patients will have chest pain and shortness of breast. They also feel the heaviness, tightness, pain, burning, pressure or squeezing. If you have these symptoms you should refer to your doctor immediately. One of the factors for CAD is cigarette smoking and this is another reason you should quite from smoking if you are a smoker

In the coronary artery bypass surgery, a blood vessel is removed or redirected from one area of the body and placed around the area of narrowing to make a detour. This procedure will restore blood flow to the heart muscle. These vessel can come from anywhere of the patient’s body and the surgeon will decide which part is the most suitable to take. The patients will never have any pain because they are receives anesthesia during the surgery

Now the surgeon uses the robot in the coronary bypass surgery. This robotic heart surgery allows the surgeon to perform the operation without being with the patient in the same room. For more information about the Heart Bypass Surgery, please visit the site. You will be satisfied

A Day Before Eid al-Adha

At Arafah

From Arafah to Muzdalifah

Mabit (sleeping) at Muzdalifah

Tawaf at Baitullah

Masjid al-Haram

Tomorrow the Muslims around the world will celebrate Eid al-Adha. This is the biggest day in Hijriah calender. About 2-3 millions Muslims are in Mecca now, performing the 'Hajj' (pilgrims), The fifth pillar of Islam. How I miss that days... Today is Arafah Day, you will be with millions of peoples from all around the world and you will feel how small are you... in the evening (after Maghrib prayer) moving from Arafah to Muzdalifah, have a night there, you just a litle one among others...

In the morning (after Fajr prayer on Eid al-Adha's day) you will move to Mina, performing the 'ramyu al-jamarah' there, then move to 'Baitullah' to perform 'Tawaf Ifadhah', maybe this is the most difficult Tawaf along the year. Then you have to 'shaving your hair or cutting it'...

Three days after Eid al-Adha is Tasyriqs days. You will go To Mina again, performing the 'ramyu al-jamarat' there and spent 2-3 nights there. And that's all. You have performing the 'hajj'.

I had performing 'hajj' for eight times, from 1990-1997. I miss these days very much. I hope to bring my family there as soon as I can, but the releven target is after ten years, when I'm 45 and my wife is 38.

Today many of Muslims perform the fasting too. It is not 'wajib' like Ramadhan Fasting, but there is a lot of virtues for those who performing it...

Nizhama on Nizhama2: November Report

Like October, I wrote 32 postings in November. My major topic still Hammad, IQ Terengganu and anything related to me. I also write about furniture, sport, health products, auto, technology, computer and other topics. 32 postings is good, one article per day, but I hope to write more in December.

My readers were increase in November, thanks to Blogexplosion and Entrecard. I know they were at my blog for a minute or less, but it is better than no visitor at all. My ex-students were my major visitors too. I should do something to make more communication with them.

I have problem with my Alexa and Technorati. I know the reason but I cannot share it here. Let the 'secret' remain secret. My PR still 3, just hoping Google will not reduce it. I depend on it for now. My earning for November is USD158. Thanks to ReviewMe and Blogsvertise. For me this is a bonus as my major goal is to improve my English, and I think I did well...

I spend USD10 for maintenance the blog, USD50 to buy a product, USD10 at USfreeads, and USD5 for another product. I learn something very important in November. I think most of us know about affiliate, and I tried to involve in this 'game' last month. I earn nothing until today, but the knowledge about affiliate is more important. Affiliate program is like fishing -I guess-, you depend on your luck and of course your experience, your knowledge and the art of affiliate. I think affiliate is the most successful way to make money on line, but I still a beginner who see a lot of potential in front of me but don't know how to start it correctly. I will continue my journey in this December...

If you are thinking to be more seriously blogging, you should have your own domain. Using the free one like nizhama.blogspot is only for the beginner. As my main purpose to blogging is to improve my English, I don’t think to use my own domain for now, but maybe I will change my mind in the future.

I just visit a site which talks about web hosting, This site gives you a fair review about web hosting sites. But what attracts me most is their articles page. The newest article is about choosing between managed hosting and collocation. As a newbie, this is the first time I read about this, especially about collocation. From this article, I know that collocation is for the expert or at least intermediate, because you have to do a lot of work like setting up the hardware and configuring the software, while managed hosting is easier for the beginner, because a web hosting company will manage and provide everything needed to run your website including the server and network hardware, the software etc.

The other recent articles are about shopping cart option, making money with the domain, choosing a dedicated host and cube panel overview. All of these topics are very interesting and helping me to understand about blogosphere. These articles were easy to understand and the writer knows exactly what he writes about.

The owner of the site also categorizes the articles. This will helps the readers to search what they want in the shortest time. For example in the Domain Names file, I found ten useful articles. From the Cheap Web Hosting file, there are 29 articles and I read most of them until I get tired, but in the same time get the information that I need.

Maahad Tahfiz Darul Ulum Basriah

Today we have visitors from Maahad Tahfiz Darul Ulum Basriah, Beserah, Pahang. They reached at IQ Terengganu about 10 a.m. As usual I was among the lectures who involved in the program. One of their teachers was my ex-student, now an 'ustaz' there, Ustaz Sanusi Nordin. His wife also my ex student, Siti Nor Faiza, who was my wife's classmate.

I'm very happy seeing Sanusi and his students, reminding me my early day at Maahad Tahfiz al-Quran Negeri Terengganu in 1998. He came with 40 of his students, who also memorizing al-Quran, like what we do here in IQ Terengganu.

They spend about an hour here, before visiting Terengganu Trade Center, Terengganu Museum, Islamic Civilization Theme Park (Taman Tamadun Islam) and other places. Hope they enjoy their time here in Terengganu.

Just Return From Colmar Tropicale

(Pictures from

I went to Colmar Tropicale, Berjaya Hills Resort at Bukit Tinggi, Pahang on Friday, of course with my wife and my prince (afi, abah dan umi). We spent an amazing day there. Berjaya Hills is a unique holiday destination. Located at 2,700-3,500 feet above sea level, giving you the cool, fresh and rejuvenating air. One of their attractions, Colmar Tropicale, was inspired by the original Colmar Village in Alsace, France. What a place for a great vacation. From Bukit Tinggi, we went to Cherating and returned home yesterday. More story and pictures coming soon...
