Go Super to Listen Go Super!

There are many ways to tell someone in English that you’re going to talk with them in the future. The list is quite long, in fact! You can say that you’ll call, text, email, or send them a note. You might tell them they’ll hear from you, that you’ll talk soon, or that you will contact them when you can. You may even give them a buzz or drop them a line. You can be in touch, keep in touch, or get in touch.

Although to get in touch with someone means to be in communication with him or her, it’s also possible to get in touch with oneself. Of course, this doesn’t mean sending an email to yourself, or calling your own telephone! To get in touch with oneself means to learn about one’s feelings or interests. A friend might go camping by herself one weekend to get in touch with her love of the outdoors. Another could choose to get in touch with his interest in animals by working at a zoo. If you want to get in touch with something, you want to learn or think more about something that’s important to you.

Actor Gael Garcia Bernal is interested in politics. As a famous actor, he has been given opportunities to become active in politics, and he feels lucky to be in this position. He is able to get in touch with what he can do to make changes in the world.

Is there something you want to know more about inside yourself? What do you want to get in touch with?

I don’t even know what i want to get in touch with so as to become better, cleverer, more compassionate and so on. The list of my wishes can be too long to enumerate everything. So, what should i chose for the beginning…
Aha, i guess, it must be something very important. At last bright idea came into my mind! I’ll go to God to talk about this and that. Who is a better listener than God? None! Getting  in touch with myself is art which needs solitude and serenity. I’m constantly teaching myself to find points of contact inside my soul.
So, my choice is God! Forgive me, my friends.

Seiyf, I never thought that the phrase of today’s lesson can be used in such wise quotations you introduced to us below. 


In morning, when I saw this lesson I was thinking deeply what can I write a comment about?  But no clear thought came to my mind and I decided to read others  instead :-)

Politics as a rule  during a campaign show that they are  in touch with their inner feelings to do their best to serve their countrymen , ” baby kissing ,vote for me . i am the best candidate, blah, blah, blah. Sadly, once in power , they forget their previous commitment  to help the less fortunate classes.

“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself, and know that everything in life has purpose. There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are blessings given to us to learn from. “


” Sometimes… distance provides the clarity we are looking for. Don’t be afraid to take some time to distance yourself from people to get in touch with your own inner soul. If they were meant to be in your life..they will be there. If not….you are already on your way toward a new path.”


“Men: If you are a person of faith Sunday morning is a great time to get in touch with God and just how great boobs look in Sunday dresses.”
