Hello folks. No, english isn’t my foreign language and my english isn’n the best, too. I read it very well but I’ve got problems with speaking and writing. So I decided to start this thread, hoping I ‘m able to practice and improve my english with others and having fun in another laguage, too. I’m hoping I find other users, who are thinking this is a nice idea^^
Please feel free to talk about everything that cross your mind.
There are only two rules. Please don’t use german and please don’t write one-word-answers. That is not the aim of this thread.
If you find spelling or grammar mistakes, don’t hesistate to point them out, after all we want to learn something here.^^
Nobody is perfect so don’t be shy^^
Hello sunshine. It's nice you like the idea^^
I'm feeling exhausted. I went working today. If you can call ist working... I'm doing a traineeship at the moment, so I DO lots of work but don't earn anything. That isn't fair >.< But I supose, that's life.
What did you do today? Went to school?
I don't want to restrict the topic to much, because I think it won't receive very much feedback and I'm afraid any restriction will kill the thread
But I think, we could start with our relationship with the english language.
How long do/did you learn it? Do you learn it at school? Do you ever went to GB or the USA? Why do you like english? And so on^^
Oh, something different. Some time ago I experienced someting funny. After reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (I've read it without a break in 14 hours) I noticed, that I was beginning to form thoughts in english insted of german. It was very funny. Have you ever noticed something familiar? Beginning to think in another language?
I was told, that some exchange students actually begin to dream in english.
yes it´s normally for them to dream and to think in english...last year many of my friends went to usa and new zealand...they told me the same ...
unfortunately i had no exchange but on the world youth day my family had 2 italian girls and nobody of us could speak italian so we had to talk in english...
it was very funny on the world youth day i made my biggest experience with english-speaking....i told with americans and canadians...it was soo funny
This sounds like a very good idea. I think it is especially important in today's globalized world view to be able to express yourself in english.
For me, it is daily business, as I am working for a global enterprise. I am working with many colleagues from other countries, so english becomes second nature.
Also, in private, I very much enjoy reading english literature. It very much gives you the edge in conversations, later. Movies in english also ad to the feeling, as does watching news from Sky, for example.
Well, I hope we will enjoy this experience here, all togehter.
That is a very good idea, an threat with english talking people . My english is'nt the best too, but I learn it in small steps .
In my schooltime I hated english. My teacher liked to talk about her great relatives but not to teach us. It was no way to find some sympathy with english.
Now, I read Potter in english since the third book and I love it. My english get better, I understand more and sometimes I think about dialoges in english for my fanfictions ^^ .

Actually, I had english as a major in sixth grade, but I couldn't use it much. I always liked the language, as opposed to french, but then, if you do not have the opportunity to use it regularly, it degrades rather fast.
Later on, I spent many vacations in places like the United Kingdom, the US or Canada. Developed the passion for english literature there, too.
Well, and now, it is almost so natural, that I even don't thing about it, while I switch to english in business...
at first I'll say, that my english isn't very good, too. Since one year I Haven't any englishlessons in school. And the lessons before aren't very good, cause my teacher teaches us subjects from the 5th class. And that in the 10th class....
but I find it funny to speak and write in english to have fun and learn the lenguage. So, have fun and write!!! *g*
I was bad in English, too. More than a year ago I tried to read Harry Potter 1 in English, but it did not work. But now I have to use my English every day, because I am in Finland as an exchange student. I am going to stay here for a year. I am reading Harry Potter 6 in English and it ist not so difficult I have thought.
