--------------------------
Even the female logic? :)))

Understanding Female Logic - Chapter 1. What women say and what they really mean

"Yes" = No
"No" = Yes
"Maybe" = No
"I'm sorry" = You'll be sorry
"We need" = I want
"It's your decision" = The correct decision should be obvious by now
"Do what you want" = You'll pay for this later
"We need to talk" = I need to complain
"Sure go ahead" = I don't want you to
"I'm not upset" = Of course I'm upset, you moron!
"You're so manly" = You need a shave and you sweat a lot
"Be romantic, turn out the lights" = I have flabby thighs
"This kitchen is so inconvenient" = I want a new house
"I want new curtains" = and carpeting, and furniture, and wallpaper
"I heard a noise" = I noticed you were almost asleep
"Do you love me?" = I'm going to ask for something expensive
"How much do you love me?" = I did something today you're going to hate
"I'll be ready in a minute" = Just going to wash my hair
"You have to learn to communicate" = Just agree with me
"Are you listening to me!?" = Too late, you're dead

Yes, Стервоточинка, I did indeed, thanks for that.

Thank you all for congratulations!

Snafu:

Thank you for advice! You know, one year ago (or something like that) I already started to read Hailey's "Airport", but it was quite difficult for me at that moment. May be it is an appropriate moment to try it again, taking into account Ive got one as a real book (hate to read books through computer). What about level 5 - I think you are right. They give you the same exam and ask you the same questions for any of levels and the eventual result depends on how fluently you can deal with it. So anyway this result depends on your vocabulary, grammar and so on. For example, I was asked the following question: "What is the part of a day between a sunset and a night". General english, but I simply forgot this word =) I think, its impossible to get level 5, if you dont know a word "twilight"...But there are so many words!!! Even for routine daily english. It seems like a real challenge, but I dont give up =) You know, when I started to study english (it was about 3 years ago) I thought it would take me 2-3 years to pick it up. I had some friends who spoke English very well with no signs of huge efforts. And I have to confess I was mistaken. Its not easy at all. And sometimes I think the only way to achieve good results is to dedicate all your life to studing English. That's why those of us, who are really going to fly after the graduation, spend 30 minutes a day on aerodynamics and navigation and all the rest time - on English =) Such a brutal truth =)

Mila, there is no a private life at all here...The only joy we have is an opportunity to see our wifes a couple of times a year (cities and thousands of km apart). There is simply nothing to do except for studing here. A small village with cows and geese on what can be identified as roads. Of course, who wants some adventures (read "troubles" :) that always finds them, but not in our case =)

Speaking of twilight - I would probably fail this question as well :) I don't use this term frequently (or, to be honest, don't use it at all), and the closest association is "The Twilight Saga" movie. But I would answer something like that: "Well, I don't remember the exact term, but I tell you that it's a perfect time to relax - lay in a big soft armchair, pour a glass of good scotch, add some ice, switch your TV on and try to find a good movie or game". And I'm pretty sure that they will rate this answer as 5 (or whatever your rating system is).
Don't try to give the exact answer, just keep you mind open and say something related to the original topic. And don't try to build your answer in Russian and translate it to English - start _thinking_ in English. It's hard, I know. And like I said before - there are no such courses or trainings. Just practice, practice and even more practice.

What a great example and idea! Honestly, Ive never thought in such a way (I mean your imagined answer). I'll take it! =) A lack of practise is the biggest problem, but how to start thinking in English? For example, I am looking at an apple and say to myself "apple", not "яблоко". Is that what it means?

-------------------------
Exactly. Whatever you do during your business day or holiday - try to explain it to yourself in background. In English, of course. "Oh, such a nice apple. I want it. By the way, I'm getting hungry, it's time to grab something to eat". Do it all the time. And if you can't say what you want to say - check the dictionary afterwards. It may be hard at the beginning, but when you get used with it - a piece of cake. When you start seeing dreams in English - you are on the right track :)

To My Dear Wife,

During the past year, I have tried to make love to you 365 times. I
have succeeded 12 times. The following list is why I didn"t succeed
often.

1. The sheets are clean. . . . . . . . . . . . . .54 times
2. It is too late. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .17 times
3. Too tired from shopping all day. . . . . . . . 49 times
4. It is too early. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20 times
5. It is too hot. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 15 times
6. Pretending to be asleep. . . . . . . . . . . . 15 times
7. The neighbors will hear us. . . . . . . . . . .3 times
8. Headache. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .22 itmes
9. Sunburn. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 7 times
10. Your Mother will hear us. . . . . . . . . . . .9 times
11. Not in the mood. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 43 times
12. You will wake the baby. . . . . . . . . . .. . 17 times
13. Watching the late show. . . . . . . . . .. . . 6 times
14. New Hairdo. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..5 times
15. Too sore. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .16 times
16. Wrong time of month. . . . . . . . . . . . . . 36 times
17. Have to get up early. . . . . . . . . . . . . .19 times

Of the 12 times I did succeed, the activity was not satisfactory because 2
times you just laid there, 4 times you reminded me that there was a crack in
the ceiling, 3 times you told me to hurry up and get it over with, 2 times I
had to wake you up to tell you that I had finished, and once I was afraid I
had hurt you because I felt you move.

---------------------------------------------
To My Dear Husband,

I think that you have gotten things a little confused. Here are the real
reasons you did not get it more often than you did.

1. Came home drunk and tried to fuck the cat. . . . 15 times
2. Did not come home at all. . . . . . . . . . . . .36 times
3. Did not cum. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ..21 times
4. Came too soon. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 33 times
5. Went soft before you got it in. . . . . . . . . .33 times
6. Toes cramped. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 times
7. Working too late. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .38 times
8. Have to get up early to play golf. . . . . . . . 29 times
9. Had a fight and someone kicked you in the balls . 2 times
10. Caught Herman in your zipper. . . . . . . . . . .4 times
11. Caught a cold and your nose kept running. . . . .3 times
12. Burned your tongue on hot coffee. . . . . . . . .3 times
13. You had a splinter in your finger. . . . . . . . 2 times
14. Came in your PJ"s while reading a dirty book. .16 times
15. Watching football on TV. . . . . . . . . . . . 98 times
16. Hemorrhoids flared up. . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 times

Of the times we did get together, the reason I laid still was because you
were fucking the sheets. I wasn"t talking about the crack in the ceiling.
What I said was, would you prefer me on my back or kneeling. The time you
felt me move was because you farted and I was trying to breathe!!

BA is now opereating Boeing 747 to Moscow.
Our captain - was a joker. Before we were cleared for take off he made an announcement "Ladies and gentlemen. We are cleared for take off. I haven't been here before but my colleague told me that the RW here is a bit rough,so be prepared for a bumpy ride!".. Actually it wasn't that bad at all..)))

My apologies but this thread is closing down. Thanks to all who have supported it and chatted, found some help or even friends. Perhaps one day I will open it or start a new one. Not sure yet.
All the best!
