I'm a student from Saint-Petersburg (Russia). In November 2010 I was preparing for my TOEFL exam. Resources used by me for test preparation include British National Corpus, Cambridge Advanced Learner's dictionary, wiktionary.org, free part of official materials from here and here, anki (to learn new words, my current rate is about 60 words/day during the days completely devoted to enhancing my vocabulary). Recently I've passed my GRE (320 on verbal).

Now I'm in US and I continue to learn English. I've added tradukka to my list of resources.

comment Can “did not” be used instead of “should not”?
@d'alar'cop Wait a moment, the speech about psychologist concludes, that "Starting out by looking for solutions was taking things entirely out of order. Like starting a meal with dessert, only bad." That is, it concludes that they should not start out immediately looking for the solutions.

comment Can “did not” be used instead of “should not”?
@d'alar'cop The speech about the psychologist concludes, that it's better to discuss the problem and do not look for the solutions. So "did not start out ..." was right thing to do, and if they "started ...", that would be wrong.
