o’zbekchada o’qing

Hey guys 🙂

Today is Sunday[1]. Usually I listen to music or podcasts while I’m doing my housework. Luke’s English Podcast is the one I’m listening to recent times. Today I listened its episode on London underground and its rules for passengers. And you know what? I’d like to write a blog post combining my own experience of using the underground and also Luke’s suggestions. Who knows, there might someone is who planning to leave for London any time soon among you guys for good, for studies or for a short stay. So let’s not talk much in the introduction part and move to the post itself. Let’s go…

My way of learning French

image002             Photo source ©  Je Parle Français. Le français pour tous et tous pour le français.

Assalom MenSenvaUlarchilar 🙂

Yodingizda bo’lsa, bundan avvalgi postimda qish oylarida nimalar bilan shug’ullanmoqchi ekanligim bilan o’rtoqlashgandim. Ayrim ishlar hali rejaligicha qolmoqda, lekin fransuz tili bilan shug’ullanishga astoydil kirishdim. Bugun Siz bilan aynan shu haqida gaplashamiz, yani kelgusida fransuz tilini o’rganmoqchi bo’lsangiz, bu post aynan Siz uchun.

Hey everyone,

If you guys remember, I wrote my resolution for winter in my previous post. Some of the points of the to do list are still remaining untouched, however, I’m very determinant with my learning of French. Today I’d like to share about how I started all and how well I’ve done so far. So if you’re planning to learn French anytime soon, this is the post for you. Continue reading

To do list for winter

Bugun qishda qilmoqchi ishlarim haqida o’ylab chiqib, to do list tuzdim. Hozir rejalarimning eng muhimlarini shu yerga ham qayd qilib qo’ymoqchimanki, rejalar haqiqiy maqsadga aylanib, mavsum so’ngiga qadar bari amalga oshishi uchun bu ham bir qadam… 🙂

Today I thought about my winter plans and made a to do list. Now I would like to write about my plans here too that they will become more than just plans. And hopefully, by the end of the season I will achieve them all.

Silence…

Bugun ikki narsa bilan esda qolarli bo’ldi…

Ertalab tish shifokori qabulida bo’ldim, qishloq vrachlik punktida Paxta mashmashalarini ko’rib na kulgim, na yig’lagim keldi…shunchaki bemorlarga, ayniqsa kichik bolakaylarga achindim, shifokorlarga ham… uyga borganda  nimadir yozaman deb o’ylab qo’ydim…

Tushdan so’ng o’qiyotganim romanni (O’tkir Hoshimovning “Tushda kechgan umrlar” asari) tugatdim. Asar boshida ta’kidlangan jumla asar so’ngida yana ta’kidlanibdi:

“Donolar hayotni kuzaturlar jim…”

Jim turamiz… Faqat kuzatamiz…

 

There were two remarkable things during the day today…

I had an appointment at the dentist in the morning, I couldn’t dare to cry or laugh at their cotton issues…I just felt sorry for the patients, especially, for the small children and for the doctors/nurses too… I planned to write something on this issue once I get home…

In the afternoon, I finished the novel  (Tushda kechgan Umrlar/ Lives lived in dreams by Utkir Hoshimov)  that I was reading these days. The statement that was stated at the beginning of the novel was stated at the end too: 

“The wise observe the life silently…”

We keep silence… We just observe… 

A day in Eppstein

Assalom azizlar 🙂

Yozning so’ngi kunlaridan unumli foydalangan holda bir sayr qilib kelmaymizmi? Qulay oyoq kiyim kiyib olishning o’zi kifoya. Tayyormisiz? Kettik unda…

Hey my dears 🙂

It is the last days of the Summer and we still have some time to enjoy the holiday season. If you have a pair of comfortable shoes, I’ll invite you out to a little tour. Are you ready? Let’s go then…

Keyingi bekat London! Ogoh bo’ling!

Read the post in English

Assalom,  azizlar))

Bugun yakshanba. Odatda uy yumushlarini qila turib  musiqa yoki podkast eshitaman. Luke’s English Podcast (Lyukning inglizcha podkasti) so’ngi paytlarda eng ko’p eshitayotganimdir. Bugun London metrosi va unda yurish qoidalari  haqidagi  seriyasini eshitdim. Va bilasizlarmi nima? Sizlarni ehtimol rejalashtirgan, ehtimol orzu qilganingiz yoki xayolingizni ko’chasiga kelmagan safaringiz uchun as qotadigan ma’lumotlar-u maslahatlarni mujassamlashtirgan blogpost yozish istagi tug’ildi. Qarang, Sizni qanchalik yaxshi ko’raman-u, Siz o’ylamagan safaringizni o’ylab post yozayapman. Balki orangizda Londonga o’qishga, ishga yoki butunlayga ketayotganlar bordir, kim bilsin.  Kirish qismini ko’p cho’zmay maqsadga o’tamiz. Qani ketdik…
