Ooooooh. Sparkly new *checks for traces of dust*. What's going on in here then?

*chuckles darkly* had to make sure I asked a question just to get my hands on this toned looking thing...Bad, bad girl...

But ask who is at fault here, the poor souls who can't resist temptation -- or those who deliberately put temptation in our way knowing we can't resist temptation. I mean, give a pyromaniac some matches...

Sparklisbon, Specklusitania?

Only Specklusitania is such a mouthful and most people are familiar with the word Portugal, so I just use that instead.

French! I love French. I originally signed up to take it in school, but got bumped into German because of scheduling conflicts. So, I'm going on my second year of German, and learning some Romanian and Lithuanian in my free time.

Congrats Sara for having your own district. Since people have started migrating into it from all over, I suggest that we hold a referendum as to what shall be the official language for this district.
Or should we hold elections. I love to see the politicos fight over nothing.

Serious question:

Poet, Sara, I post frequently on another ESL forum and they have seperate threads dedicated to each language (Itallian only, Portugese only). Are you thinking of doing something similar with this one?

SaraP
07-03-2010, 03:39 PM
Portuguŕs:

Eu bano
Tu banas
Ela/Ela bana
Nˇs banimos
Vˇs banis
Eles/Elas banem

Hmmmm ... I'm hungry. For some reason I want a banana. :D

Also, I see an H. :evil

07-03-2010, 03:42 PM
Fallen, for now, I think we're just going with the flow. I don't think there are enough people on here who speak portuguese (or italian or any other foreign language) to justify separate threads for it.

Suggestions are more than welcome though. Keep 'em coming!

Just be aware, some of us can read French, and understand it, but not speak it. :D

I used to have a roomie whose first language was French, and was often (justly) accused of understanding what she said. It's a great skill for a spy--I can play the perfect clueless English-speaking person, yet understand what was said. Mwahahahah!

Seriously, though, maybe there could also be a place for those of us clueless English speaking folks who are trying to learn another language? Or to pracitce the ones we do know? Heck, maybe I'll try and turn out some writing in French, which I haven't really used since high school!

I'm not wanting to "take over the forum," mind, but I'm conscious that while we want and expect non-English speaking persons to learn English, we often don't return the favour (and it is a favour, when someone chooses to learn your language in order to communicate with you) ourselves.

Says Ruth, who has French-speaking friends who speak English, and wants to learn Spanish too.

Oh, I am fully aware of that! That is why I put the integral English translation just under my French outburst. This way all the English-speaking folks have the same information. ;)
I mostly write in English and never say anything I might want to hide so no need to spy on me. *laughs*
