I went shopping for clothes with my mother the other day and got a cardigan!
I usually accept my mum's sense which is better than mine!

I love green :PP
That's my favorite colour :)
I don't know why ??.....I guess It's a co-incidence that every time at parties or functions I usually wear Black and Red :)
I really look good in them ....Still I like green :P
Our school had four Houses.....
They were named on our leaders and I was the Head of one of the Houses.....And my was of Green color ....the flag was Green too.....And the Sash I wore was green too.......
My BFFs call me Green too........:P
That reminds me of my school days :))
It was fun :p

Hi hadia!
I presume you look good in green!
Because you seem to have burgeoning intelligence just like a burgeoning tree!
Fabby!☆

Hi Elsa :)
Thanks for the compliment :))
Btw........So far as I've imagined you in my way....I guess you'll look beautiful in blue :P
I think you might have blonde hair and usually dress up in braids :P
Well I guess you would be thin and have a medium height............
I don't know exactly what you look like but I think of you like this.....just as Elsa is!! You know her right?? Elsa-Frozen......
Well, Have you ever imagined my appearance in your mind's corner??
Have you ever??
If so, Then how I look like???
Explain please :P

Hmmm...... can i answer your question instead of Elsa ?
It's not really hard for me to imagine how "green" you are :))
You might have black or brown hair and you have lots of friends.
And you're dynamic, too ;)
If i correct about your appearance for about 50%, i'll become a master :))
Just call me Jamie

Hey there Master Jamie :P
Thanks for your lovely comment :P
Woohhoo....!!! I do have black hair and slightly brownish from the end :)
And I have a lot of friends too........I love to make friends and get to know new people........
How come you get to know this??
You're really amazing :)
You really got an innovative mind which is a prism of creativity....
Few days ago our teacher shared a link with us and asked us to open it in free time ....
It was actually a game which calculates about your personality...
We have to answer different questions and the end ,the game tells us about our thinking and personality....
They game said that I have a uniquely creative personality......
and that I live in constant anticipation of experiencing something new and wonderful..... ha ha ha ")
I was really happy to listen that.........
But I'm sure that you are dynamic too.......As, it's not easy to sketch somebody's personality :))
I guess the world and the people around you stimulate your imagination and you take things with intuition and wisdom :))
You're really a good person to talk with :))
Thanks again ,Jamie....
Your friend,
Hadia :)

Bingo, hadia!
I think your imagination is great!
Actually, you know what, blue has a various variations from navy to light blue just like one in my profile pic, and strangely enough, I bought a light blue cardigan the other day which I didn't show any interest at first but my mum insisted that i looked good in the colour ....⭐️ It's really difficult to view myself objectively!!

Okay had, it's my turn,,, how you look like??
Well, may I spare some time for imaging your appearance in my way as a fun homework??

Wait till then! ⭐️ :))

Bingo, Elsa!!
(Hey, this really sounds cool....I'm cheating your greeting way....hehehehe)
Well, Is that??.......Really?? Is my Imagination great.....?....hmm
Hey, you don't like blue much? Well, don't say that again because I'm sure you'll look amazing in it.......
Besides.....it's really a clean,deep and pure color ......
Just imagine a person with deep blue ocean eyes.....Wouldn't he/she be beautiful......I really wanted to have blue eyes......but I have black eyes :))
Blue or bluish green eyes show a mark of determination.....My teacher says it :P
Okay then....I'm waiting but i really wanna listen what do you think about me.....
Till then...
Bubye sweetie...

Hi hadia,
I've been hectic these days, what's up? :)
Well, that's interesting that you really wanted to have blue eyes ...! Really?
You know what, I've got a funny view about blue eyes (or gray eyes); their eyes actually look like glass balls!
I can't see where the eyes are focusing on! Naturally, it's hard to read their mind.....! (haha, see? This is one of my skills to survive!⭐️)

Lucky you, hadia with black eyes! If I had chance to see you, I could read your mind instantly and describe you precisely! ⭐️
So without seeing you, it's a bit hard for me to sketch you because I don't have a wild imagination like you!⭐️
But I'll try..., let me see... you've got a well-balanced shape of a body, which looks healthy, you've got a longish brownish hair with fringe... You look modest and are very funny actually (in a positive way)! Your character matches the image of greenery! Vivid green makes people's eyes restful, a flexible branch and whip never breaks, the leaves wave in a pleasant breeze. Surprisingly enough, greenery can take off even in the small space between rocks as long as it can get touch of the sun! Amazing! ⭐️
Are these true to you, hadia? It's obvious that you are smart, so I tried to imagine your inside without looking at your eyes! :))

'Hi there dear elsa.....
I got a new simile :)
⭐️⭐️⭐️As creative as Elsa⭐️⭐️⭐️
You've got such an amazing and innovative thinking......And still you think you don't have wild imagination...huh???
Try to love yourself a bit :P You're really an amazing thinker....
You captured the beauty and greenery inside me including the natural things......!!
While reading your beautiful comment......I just though you're frog! Analyzing the nature beautifully :P Ha ha just kidding....Remember you said the same thing when we just started our friendship??
well, Hm....I must say that you sketched me rightfully .....
And I wanna ask something......!! Did my writing about your figure true??
Do you really dress up in braids...huh/??
Um...
"Surprisingly enough, greenery can take off even in the small space between rocks as long as it can get touch of the sun! Amazing!"
Yeah, you're such an amazing writer indeed :P

Hi hadia, thank you! :)
I'm as happy as a clam! Did my imagination fit like a glove? :))
I still imagine you're as bright as a button; as innocent as a lamp; your soul is tough as nails; your smile is as snug as a bug in a rug, although we may be as different as a night and a day, I hope our friendship is as deep as the ocean! ⭐️⭐️
.... Oh, did I say the same thing? Wow, your memory capacity is as large as life, you know, life is like a box of chocolates!! :))

Me? A frog?? Ha ha, you're as cute as a kitten, hadia! :P
Well, to your question, honestly I haven't dressed up in braids..., because my hair is actually as thin as a toothpick and as light as a feather!! :P I must say you sketched me two out of six points rightfully....!! It wasn't as easy as shooting fish in a barrel...huh? :))

Anyway, you know what? A tree that takes off in the small space between rocks is as strong as an ox, compared with other trees on the ground which are as common as dirt. Have you seen such a tree in the nature? How do you feel about it? :))

⭐️As sweet as Elsa⭐️ (Don't take me as nutty as a fruitcake, please!)

I have a question? Should I spell color as "color" or "colour"? Because on the website it was "colour" but in other places I have seen "color" so...

Hi englishmeow!
Good question! Both spellings of colour and color are correct :)
Colour is the English spelling whereas color is the American English spelling. As we are an English website we use colour. I hope this helps ...
Best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglish Team)

My favourite colour is green.... and orange! But it depends on what it is. I rarely wear orange cloths recently.

You are so funny. SNSD is a girlgroup which has name in English is " girl' generation" including 8 members. They are from Korean. Their colour symbol is pink. They had several concerts in Singapore. They are in the same company ( SM entertainment) with Suju, F(x), Red Velvet, .....
Have you ever listened their songs ? I like the song " Dear Mom" most.

Yeah…. I think I can understand the lyrics….
The song is all about mum, and "I love you, mum", right? :)
To me, it's a little embarrassing. Maybe, our relationship might be too close to say so in a very artificial way. Or we have a distance because it was when I was an elementary school that I recognized my 'mother'…!
I wanted to get along with my mum much further……………….

Hi Elsa, I am very happy to become your good friend.
I think that I know what you want to say!
I believe that I can understand your feeling.
I guess I realise the difference between Giang and gianggiang.
Because we are good friends, we need to help each other. ( I mean if sometimes I am at mistake, please tell me,I will change,I promise:))
Giang
