Foreign Languages

Postby BlueTronic » March 9th, 2008, 10:04 am

Continuing from the conversation in the "Introduce Yourself" thread.

Math: Remember 9 before 3, exept after D! :P

My brother, Sean, sometimes talks fast and we can't understand him. We decided that when he talks fast, he's speaking "Seanese". I have no clue how to speak Seanese and am not about to try. :P But over time, I've discovered that Donkey Kong Country in Seanese is said "DonKonCutry"

I've chosen french but my vocabulary shrinked to almost zero. Spanish would have been a much better choice...

Oui oui, senior. :P

The soixante-quatres sound funny (okay, maybe Vierundsechzig does sound as bad as the french number) and I like his "Türok". I hope you can see the "Umlaut", those points over the u :D

I'm mexican and have been learning English since kindergarden. You know, learning to say: "apple", "banana", "yellow" XD And was just 'til Elementary School that I started learning to actually talk =P As, I remember my first sentences in my book: "What's your name?" Being my first question LOL! Then I started learning stuff like: "I am (name)", I'm 6 years old or stuff.

I actually think English is complicated, sometimes you pronounce letters that aren't even in the word you're pronouncing! While in Spanish, a is always a, b is always b, there are just few gramatical stuff like "que" or "güi", as in "queso" or "pingüino". But basically you just say what you read. XD

Yes, I always found it strange that it might take an American maybe three years to learn to speak english, yet we keep learning english all the way through school, and it's our native tounge! Talaivanizer, don't worry about it if you have any problem speaking English clearly, we will work around it.

Mhh, somehow french is helping here.
I'll try translating the words.

Tú = You ; hablas = speak ; inglés = english ; bien = good/well !
Eres = Is/It is ; mejor = ¿better? ; que = than/as ; tú = you ; piensas = think.

Tu parles bien anglais! Il est meilleur que tu pense.
Du spricht gutes Englisch! Es ist besser als du denkst.
Is this translation ok?

You got all those words right except for "eres," which means "you are" (in singular form). "Es" means "it is." :P

Why? Thanks! by the way, You forgot to add "de lo" as: "Eres mejor de lo que tú piensas" =P

You got that right Stone, all those are correct, except for the "Eres" which Blaziken257 has just stated.

Ok, you said:

"Nacho, burrito friend! Enchilada Big. Piñata too much?

Is your mother thetable?

An apple blue."

You got that one right, but you except you forgot to separate "es" and "la", two different words.

I've seen many English speaker people has this problems, in Spanish the adjective is before the noun, instead of "the big boy" we say "the boy big" as in "el niño grande" instead of "el grande niño" Just some advice for you XD

I LUUUV when English speakers talk in spanish and pronounce the "R" the English way, instead of the Spanish Way, or they pronounce the "O" as "Ou" as instead of "Perdone, ¿dónde está el restaurante?" They say "Peurdoune, ¿dóunde está el urestauruante?" xD

I agree, I love this "¿" mark, I have it in my keyboard! >=D

Well that was a super-bump, but rather than complaining, I'll just add my thoughts.

Kiddy, I'm going to learn Spanish soon! I will probably do all of those things you mentioned in your above post... :P Although I'll try to speak with a Spanish accent.

So your native tongue is Finnish, you speak fluent English, and you also speak Swedish, but perhaps not fluently?

Exactly. If a Swedish person talks to me I don't really understand that much. However, I can talk to a Swedish person so he or she understands me.. a bit.

I speak Spanish & English, but my friend says I have a great French accent, even though I only know the absolutely basic words. :lol: So, I'd like French to be my third language. My sister speaks English, Spanish, French, Japanese, and sign language. She also took German and Arabian but she doesn't remember them well.

Lo más dificil de el español es colocar las tildes correctamente, especiálmente cuando lo escribes en una computadora y constántemente tienes que utilizar la tecla de Alt.

English: The hardest thing to do in Spanish is place the tilde correctly, especially when you write it in a computer and you have to constantly use the Alt key.

There are a lot of grammatical errors :lol: Joking, ok. But there are a lot of errors XD
But what do you mean with the Alt key? Don't you have this little key to the right of the P? All you do is click it, appears as nothing happened but if you click in a vocal, an accent is added to it.

I already said my nationality earlier in this topic, but I'd also like to learn Portuguese. It's my favorite language, then is Spanish, then is Japanese, then is Cantonese, then is English.

Have you ever seen a screenshot of an Arabian Windows? :shock:

Yes, my spanish spelling stinks, don't correct me on everything, just correct me on the numbers, because I know I made a mistake there somewhere...

No, this isn't all I know. I know many other things to, like individual words, and a few other phrases, anyways...
