The passions are all good in their nature and we have nothing to avoid but their misuse or their excess. 
- Descartes, The Passions of the Soul

« Les passions sont toutes bonnes de leur nature et nous n’avons rien à éviter que leurs mauvais usages ou leurs excès. »
de René Descartes
Extrait du Les Passions de l’âme

Happy Friday, everyone! :)

“On the weekend” and “at the weekend” are both correct. The former is American English and the latter British.

So what are your plans for the weekend? What do you normally do on/at the weekend? Share with us here! :)

“False friends are pairs of words or phrases in two languages […] that look or sound similar, but differ significantly in meaning. An example is the English ‘embarrassed’ and the Spanish ‘embarazada’, which does not in fact mean 'embarrassed' but rather 'pregnant'.”

A very good explanation from Wikipedia.

Do you know the usage of the words "discuss" and "discussion"? 
The verb "discuss" is used without preposition. E.g. They are discussing their travel plans. The noun "discussion" can be used in conjunction with "about" to express the topic. E.g. We had a discussion about language education.
