This page in progress as long as I have been learning English :)
A good programmer must know English well or even better, so I try to make conversation with other programmers or other people, who want to improve their English skills.
Actually, studying English provides few areas such as Vocabulary, Grammar, Reading, Listening, Writing, Speaking, Pronunciation. So I will try to mix it in each lesson...
Every conversation theme (or lesson) consists:
For example, if we are talking (lesson's conversation) about Internet thus question is
"- What have you already known about Internet?".
We have couple theme such as: how does create web-site, computer programmer personality, computer programmer job description, html, php, web-design, web-security, framework's and so on...
This text is usefull either as information or a sample for reading. The lesson's Question List can also relate to this text.
For example, you need to answer such question like:
- How does Internet network work?
- What does "HTTPS-protocol" mean?
- What does "Web site" mean?
- What does computer programmer usually do? and etc...
Each specific theme consist about thirty question's.
I think also would be usefull some link to other resourses, that will be interesting for conversation.
Assumes all this conversation must be about:
Briefly: It is my training page in conversation.
We have some hero: Boss - Mr. Twister, secretary - pretty Alice, and just good dude - programmer Bob.

Lessons question: - Why do you learn English? How many languages do you speak? What languages would you like to learn in future? Do you need to use your foreign languages at work? - What can you do when you have a good knowledge of English? How will the quality of your life improve? What is value of learning languages? Do you think that knowing a foreign language might encourage you to live abroad in future?...
- So let's consider about us :) ... Learning
Briefly: A very common question that people ask when starting the study of a foreign language is
“How many words do I need to know in order to be conversationally fluent for everyday talk in X language?”
This is a very good question, and one that we will try to answer in, but first of all, let me ask you this:
- Have you ever wondered how many words there are in your language?
Well, this is the wrong question, in fact, since there is no single sensible answer to this question.
- Why is that?...
- So let's consider about this ... How many words do I need to know?

Briefly: Хоча я й вивчаю досить давно англійську мову, та навіть інтуїтивно знаю в чому недолік самостійного вивчення англійської мови (відсутність постійного живого спілкування), та, вважаю, що все ж англійська мова досить легка. Тут ніби й небагато потрібно - знати основи граматики, тобто, яким ж чином висловити свою думку, та мати достатній словниковий запас.
Далі все просто, якщо мова насправді тобі потрібна для повсякденного спілкування, то мову будеш знати, якщо ж мову застосовувати лиш час від часу, то, як на мене, людський мозок просто стирає зайве, що не застосовується.
Що ж, давайте спробуємо легко розібратись, що то за англійська граматика, та оті всі Часи англійської мови: Simple, Continuous, Perfect....

Briefly: - What is it mean "website"?
A website, also written as web site, or simply site, is a set of related web pages typically served from a single web domain. A website is hosted on at least one web server, accessible via a network such as the Internet or a private local area network through an Internet address known as a uniform resource locator (URL). All publicly accessible websites collectively constitute the World Wide Web.

Briefly: Computer Programmers write code. Through the use of computer languages, such as C++ and Java, computer programmers create instructions for computers to perform and follow. They work closely with others in the company to develop, maintain, debug, and test computer programs.
Computer Programmers are commonly employed by software companies. However, with the surge in access to computer programmers, many governmental and private sector companies, such as banks and law firms, have begun to employ computer programmers. It is not uncommon to see computer programmers working as freelancers, moving from project to project within technology consulting firms, or independently.

Briefly: A completely secure system is a virtual impossibility, so an approach often used in the security profession is one of balancing risk and usability. If every variable submitted by a user required two forms of biometric validation (such as a retinal scan and a fingerprint), you would have an extremely high level of accountability. It would also take half an hour to fill out a fairly complex form, which would tend to encourage users to find ways of bypassing the security..
