An anecdote is a short and entertaining story. It is usually a personal story, and it's better to use the pronoun 'I' for this story

A sample anecdote:

      Physical gestures and body language have different meanings in different cultures, and misunderstanding these signals can sometimes become embarrassing. Although I spent a lot of time among non-Americans, I had never really realized what this could mean in practical terms. I had an experience which taught me well, however. Some years ago, I organized and accompanied a small group of  visiting foreign students to New York for four days of sightseeing by bus. Because these students were rather young, and because New York is such an overwhelming city, I was constantly counting heads to be sure we hadn’t lost anyone. In the U.S., it is very common to count people or things by pointing the index finger and , of course, I used this method. One young man became extremely quiet, and I thought that perhaps he wasn’t enjoying himself. When I asked him what was the matter, he replied, “in my country, we count people with our eyes. We use our fingers to count the pigs.” 

My best friend

      My best friend is Sara, and we have a lot of beautiful memories hanging out with each other. We have known each other since childhood. She helped me in a very special way. At the age of 8, I moved to another city. It was very scary for me to go to a new school. I was very shy then. In fact, I was afraid to speak to other students and even teachers. Sara asked me to eat lunch with her on my first day. During the next several months, she helped me to adjust to life in the new school and out of school, too. Now, Sara is in Australia with her husband and two children. We haven’t seen each other for eight years. However, we stay in touch by email and on Facebook. We telephone each other at least once a month. Sara changed my life for better, and we will be friends forever.

 Having a bad dream can ruin your whole day, and no one knows way we some nights have a bad dream.
Three month ago I had a bad dream and then when I woke up I felt terrible I didn’t have energy. The whole of my dream was dark with a green light, I was in a big mosque whit a big yard and I was alone. I was scary I didn’t know where I am, I was constantly running in that yard so I could escape, but suddenly I noticed people wearing long black shirts coming towards me. I tried to escape from them, but again I saw them everywhere in the mosque. I had a lot of fear and I could not think and they were getting closer to me every moment. Finally I found a way to escape. I walked away from them and those green lights fade and I woke up suddenly. I had a strange feeling all day and I could not forget that scary dream.

Merdas chocolate 

  Some words are known as false friends and are either spelled or pronounced the same as words in other languages, but they can have very different meanings: they might be harmless in one language but quite insulting in another. Back in 2015, my Portuguese friend, Antonio, had met me before New Year in Mashhad. He is a coffee lover, so I invite him to my friend’s café, and I asked my friend to prepare a special one for Antoni. But things got weird when he brought the coffee to the table. Antonio got surprised! And he starts getting details about the chocolate, which they served beside the coffee cup; Is it made in Iran?, What does the name meaning?, How do you guys pronounce it? I said I don’t have any clue what you talking about, but the pronounce is Merdas. Antonio said what? I said a little bit louder, Merdas! That word had him in fits of laughter, then he said: I got completely by surprise when I saw the name. Beg pardon but in Portuguese Merdas meaning feces. A few seconds silent, then was my turn to laugh my head off.

I want to talk about the best holiday that before Corona I went to Qeshm and Bandar Abbas and my friends stayed there for about 10 days .
I prefer to travel with my friends In the event that a month later I went to shomal with my family.
But the trip I had with my friends was more enjoyable than with my family.
Because I always laugh with my friends and we are playing clowns and pranks.
When the flight landed and we entered the Bandar city We have felt very good because the people were hospitable.
There were plenty of shopping malls in the Bandar and every time we went there, when people found out we were non-natives, they would greet us and give us discounts.
One of the most spectacular places Bandar was Pergola Mansion.
I remember having a lot of fun here with my friends.
One of the things that was interesting to us was the way they dressed that
Which was very different from us Khorasani

My best holiday was two years ago.
Two years ago,my best friends at school and I went on holiday
In winter,we went on a ten-day trip to the city of ahvaz,the weather there was so warm!
We took the train and we were on the road for thirty-six hours and it was a little difficult for us because the train seats were broken!
The people of Ahvaz were cool and my friends and i had a great time
I bought a perfume and headphones in that city and unfortunately i didn’t have more mony to buy more things because the markets there were very cheap
My friends and I had a great time and took pictures together
I will never forget this holiday

No, in my opinion, no one’s life changes overnight. Of course, it is only possible to change the way of thinking, but one night many things do not change. These changes must take a long time. Some things are very different from money in life, and as the old saying goes, you can not go a thousand ways overnight. You should try to achieve goals. Those who change everything overnight certainly lose everything quickly, but those who The hard work and effort of getting their favorite things, they appreciate what they have, and overnight nothing changes in my opinion, because you can’t have a spring flower, this is exactly what it says.

The best holiday for me happened this year.
The New Year holidays coincided with my marriage.
It was very happy for me because I started the new year and the new century with a new life with a kind and kind-hearted man. I experienced new and beautiful days in this holiday with my wife. Most importantly, I realized the true meaning of love during this holiday season, which is why the New Year holiday was the best holiday of my life.

The best holiday

My best holiday took place last 3 summers, when I travelled to South America, Chile for the first time. I went there with my wife. We chose this destination because of its reputation of being one of the happiest country in the world – it is absolutely true! It was wonderful, more than anyone could imagine.

Chile is a long, narrow country stretching along South America’s western edge, with more than 6,000km of Pacific Ocean coastline. Santiago, its capital, sits in a valley surrounded by the Andes and Chilean Coast Range mountains


The diversity of wildlife was

awesome. There were waterfalls, grasslands and unknown places. The jungle

combines with lots of beautiful white-sand beaches.


The food was really good too. It was very

simple, with rice and vegetables for our everyday meals, but it tasted

especially delicious right there, amongst nature and the animals.


We slept in very simple hostels every night,

but with very friendly owners like all the other native people we met.


Chilean often answer the question ‘How are

you?’ with the expression ‘Pura vida’. The translation is ‘pure life’, that

could mean ‘cool’ or ‘everything is fine’. It makes real sense, once you have

been there.


On our last trip day, I remember that my wife

turned to me and said, “That was the best holiday I’ve ever had”.

It was same to me . . .

(The Best Holiday)

I and my husband had one of the best holiday in the north iran 3 years ago. One day my husband and i decided to go on a trip to the north of iran and after planning we packed our things and left. I love traveling, especially to the north of iran. When i got to the north and we took home, i quickly went to the sea and jumped in the water and played, and then i went to change my clothes, and then i and my husband went to the forest and i had a great time. I always was eating ice cream on the way, and again the next day i went to the sea and jumped again in the water and at night we lit a fire and until the morning my husband and i sat near the fire. In short, this story lasted 4 days and i had a good time.
Do you know why it was different?
Because my daughter did not bother me.

سلام استاد
من برایindentationفاصله زیاد میزارم. ولی اعمال نمیشه .در حد ۱فاصله میشه فقط.چون باید بیشتر فرورفتگی داشته باشه یا همون indentation.ولی اعمال نمیشه ، گفتم بگم بهتون.


body language and the gesture of the body always reveal you!
specially when you are lying and trying to convience somebody,usually your body tell the y truth by increase your heartbeat or covering your eyes from the front face and eventually you called a lier!
so always says truth.


I have a dream of a world made up of good people which includes their choices, their passions, their likes & all the good things that they desire. In fact we cannot live in such a world which exists in my dream but I think in dreams we can make anything happen.
I have a dream of a world where everybody helps each other and there is no place for jealousy among people. It is a place where people are not segregated in terms of caste and creed. There is no difference between the poor and rich, but all are considered as equals.
My dream world is full of goodness & fun which we hardly see in this real world. Today we are not safe to live in this world no matter where we are but in my dream world everybody is safe. Though my dream of an imaginary world still deep down in my heart I sincerely wish that someday this world become a better place to live by replacing hatred with love & harmony.
It’s a great feeling to have a dream and work towards making it come true.

Snowy day
I love winter very much and I love going out in the snow and cold weather.After staying at home for a long time, we decided to go out. We got ready and went to the green spring.
We stopped just before the spring.everywhere was covered with snow. There was no water or river around us. We made a fire hard to make tea.
But we did not have enough drinking water. So we decided to melt the snow and make tea with them. We all set to work, collecting clean snow and letting it melt.It felt great next to the fire and the tea made with snow.
Collecting snow without gloves felt good, it felt like freezing inside. But it was an unforgettable day. By the fire, the cold weather and the tea made with snow were really amazing.


a persons life can be change overnight by finding lots of money. if you never ever exprienced a luxury life style , you can exprience it by this way . then you make some planes in order how to spend it.but if you are a thoughtless person you lose whole money and you return to your simple life!

The best vacation, I had refers to the time, I took my entrance exam. I didn’t go home, when I took the entrance exam and spent the whole day walking and having fun;and then after a few days, I traveled a way. During the trip, I went to see one of the recreational places called “Chamestan”, which was full of beauty.As a result, I think you should put post-exam vacations in your schedule.
3.Tell me about the best holiday you had. ?

☆Bad Dream☆

Having a bad dream can ruin your whole day. This is what I want to prove you it is true. I have had this experience. As far as I remember, I had a bad dream
one night which on that dream, there was a very old man with a long white beard, that he told me, “I am in your dream because I want to inform you when you wake up, you will die after the sunshine.” Although I knew that it was just a dream but I couldn’t calm down and fear overcame to me. I ruined all of the day and I canceled all of my date such as the appointments and classes. I stayed just at home and I was waiting for death. I realized it wasn’t real after sunshine, however, the dream ruined my whole day. This example shows that a bad dream
can ruin your whole day.

Fatemeh Mojaver
 Having bad dream can ruin your whole day.
   When I was a teenager, I dreamed of flying over a large garden. This garden was very scary and without any greenery. Flying in such conditions was very scary and terrible.
This scary dream lasted for about 2 hours. These dreams are usually longer
This black garden was full of scary sounds and bats were flying beside me.
It was midnight when I woke up, and could not sleep until morning.
The next morning started with a headache and a bad mood.
As a result, getting a good night's sleep is a good start to the next day.

The first day of school
One of the best days I have never forgotten. It was the first day of school’s doughter. My doughter was out going, and sociable, so she was happyness.
She was like independent human being; however, she was confused becuse of place, atmosphere, and all of student how gathering at the same day. It was the best day for me.

By setting deadlines and subdeadlines on every task and activitiy.

Stand up once and work entirely without supervision.put the pressure on yourself.create imaginary deadlines because that’s one of the best ways to overcome procrastination.imagine that you have to leave your city the next month,so you have to finish your work before your departure.write down each step you pass.
It’s the race against your own clock.

Having a bad dream can ruin your whole day. My teacher said this sentence when one of my classmates told us about a dream she had had the night before. Speaking of bad dream reminds me that once I had a bad dream about being bite by a big black dog. I dreamed that my friends and I were walking in the garden and were laughing and talking suddenly a dog jumped over the wall and came to the garden and ran toward me. I ran away by seeing the wild dog and asked my friends to help and rescue me ; but one of my friends said we can’t help you and you will be bite by this dog. I woke up while I was shaking. My face was covered by sweat and I couldn’t stop thinking about that nightmare. The day after one of my friends called and invited me to have dinner in their family garden. I accepted her invitation and soon after get ready to go there. When I arrived, I saw a big black dog was standing by the door. I hadn’t been in their garden before, so I didn’t know they have a black dog. The whole day I was at the building that was located in the center of garden and just looking at the great scenery through the window and even I scared of going to the balcony. Whole day I was thinking about the bad dream that I had the previous night and it ruined my whole day.
