  1. Well I am learning it myself through resources on the internet. Also I look in my sons GCSE books to see what they are doing. I try to watch and listen to Spanish programmes as often as I can.
  2. Yeah I do over use LOL. It seems so much easier to type than other words. Although, I don't like it. It makes what you are saying sound cheap. But I still use it as I haven't found a better way to quickly say LOL. It sounds like a funny word as well so I guess the meaning is actually quite good in the way that it sounds and speaks.
  3. Well to me this makes sense. All those symbols for letters. I don't know how they do it. This is a language I would love to learn though.
  4. This does seem odd. I wouldn't think that you could forget your mother tongue. As I am currently studying Spanish, I think about the words in English and keep making the link back. Also if I read a sentence in Spanish I convert it to English to read.
  5. I think it is necessary if you are going to be travelling around the world. Other than that it is not really necessary but it does help as it makes you look good to an employer and you can then travel to a country that speaks that language on holiday.
  6. Thank you for the reply. For some reason it is quite hard to find different radios in different countries.
  7. They are both the same thing. I am English, born in the UK and I always seen both ways in English. Even an English teacher would say that they are both the same. I like using "whilst" quite a bit but for me it depends on concept. For example, "while I was waiting in the queue". "Whilst I took the pencil out of my bag....". So I use whatever depending on the situation but it is the same if you are going to swap round the words. "Whilst I was waiting in the queue". I think whilst sounds more familiar to me though.
  8. They both mean the same thing. The correct spelling is "a lot". When people use alot they either don't know that it is wrong or they simply were rushing. So use "a lot" if you use it.
  9. Well I haven't gone to live in another country when I started learning another language but I did visit Spain when I was learning spanish for a week. It is actually quite a cool experience as you can put words to visual elements and hear native talk. But you need to be studying the language to be able to learn it. Without studying it will all seem like gibberish.
  10. Well I think you definitely need to know English. Then I would think it would be French, Spanish, German, Italian and Mandarin. That should cover most of the bases.
  11. Well this explains a lot for me. Some words are confusing.
  12. My favourite words in spanish are all colours: 1. Azul 2. Naranja 3. Blanco 4. Rosa I just think they are wonderful names. Sorry if I have spelt any of them wrong.
  13. So I am getting a bit confused between the preterite and the imperfect tense. What do they mean and when do you use them. Also what are the other 2 tenses?
  14. I like to use correct grammar as it seems you should get into good habits. Also I enjoy reading a piece of work when it is grammatically correct.
  15. Definitely early. But only when they can start picking up words and stuff otherwise they might not learn a thing and it could be hard for you. But it would be hard to find a programme to keep them interested.
