Incredible finish
Six minutes later Liverpool's lead on the night was wiped out as Alex fired in a free-kick with immense power, and Chelsea seemed to have put the issue beyond doubt in the 76th minute when Drogba surged away and Reina could not do enough to keep out Lampard's side-footed shot. Eleven minutes from time Lucas's drive diverted in off Michael Essien and then Kuyt was allowed room to head in Albert Riera's cross. One more goal and Liverpool would be through but instead that went to Chelsea and the inspirational Lampard, the home side's joy tempered only by a second-half booking for Ashley Cole, meaning he will be suspended for the first leg at Barcelona on 28

Task 5-Concordance

0 comments
Hye everyone,
This is the 5th posting for the assignment in this course. For this posting I need to find to articles about concordance and its application in language learning. What benefit concordance will give to language learners?
Firstly, we must understand what concordance is. According from the information that I got in during the lecture, concordance is a list of words in a piece of text or a collection of texts (usually referred to as a corpus). It is also an alphabetical index of the principle words in a book or the works of an author with their immediate context.
The concordance is used for:
▫ comparing different usages of the same word
▫ analyzing keywords
▫ analyzing word frequencies
▫ creating indexes and word lists
From my reading on the article, a concordance is a simple program which allows searching of large text file for words or phrase. It helps determine the appropriate circumstances of use for a word, phrase or construction.

Concordance is being used in many courses for example in language teaching and learning, data mining, literary and linguistic scholarship, and etc.

The concordance gives lots of benefits especially for language learner and teacher. It enables learners to access a piece of text non-sequentially or to study the ways in which it uses language. Concordances are not only used for literary purposes, but also as cross-reference systems for computer programmers, which enable teams of programmers working together to keep track of all references to, for example, a variable name, across all the files which make up a project.

This is the 4th posting for the assignment. First of all, thanks to Datin for invite me and my entire friend in group 1 to the PNB Hotel, Darby Park. The conference held on 18-19 Mac 2009. The conference is about the development of ICT among people in rural areas. The topic for this conference is “Merapatkan Jurang Digital”.
There is a lot of intellectual attend the conference. So,i gain a lot of knowledge there. There are several information that i want to share with all.





This topic was presented by a woman from Uitm Penang. It is about the problem among our society on writing.
What is writing apprehension?
Apprehensive writers basically have:
• Negative attitude and perception towards writing-anxiety, fear and worry.
• Perceive writing as a very difficult task-hard to express and elaborate thought and ideas
• Very prejudice toward their own writing performance-believe that they will receive a bad responses and comments from the teacher.
There are several symptoms for the apprehensive writers:
• Hands cramp
• Hate writing
• Mental blocking problem
• Produced shorter essays
• Ideas hardly develop
• Scared to write.
These are happen because of several factors:
• Culture-face saving
• Proficiency level
• Lack of confidence
• Lack role model
• Teachers comment
• Examination
