  1. I know I'm biased...but I love Southerners. And Irishmen.
  2. Here is an article that is extremely helpful to Americans and non-American speakers alike http://www.businessinsider.com/22-maps-that-show-the-deepest-linguistic-conflicts-in-america-2013-6?op=1
  3. Wash IS pronounced warsh in the Midwest. However, if you say warsh in the South, they will look at you like you have lost your mind.
  4. This is interesting to me, because many Southerners do the same thing. When we say "bless her heart", we don't really mean that in a good way. It's a bad thing.
  5. I agree. Jeez is probably more correct, since it is short for Jesus.
  6. Thanks Marcel! I have only been on the site for a bit, but I am really enjoying it so far!
  7. I am conversational/fluent in Spanish, but that did not happen until I had to start speaking it on a daily basis.
  8. I think not only are some of us arrogant, but we are ignorant of the world around us. And as a polyglot, someone who is appreciative of other cultures, I am ridiculed by others for by knowledge. I would also hasten to point out that many Americans are curious about the world around them, and anxious to learn culture and language, so you cannot generalize.
  9. That is true. I studied Spanish for four years in high school and college, but I did not begin to really use it until I had to speak it with students and parents because it was our only means of communication.
  10. Here I thought I was doing good to know three...sheesh :shy:
  11. I would like to continue learning Greek. Then I think I would like to learn Italian, and branch off the Spanish.
  12. I teach at a school with a wing of Deaf students. I know a few things in order to be able to communicate with them. They are an amazing group of children. I love to watch them talk. Some of the teachers who work with them can hear, some cannot, and watching them communicate is fascinating. They do have a completely different culture.
  13. Speaking is the most difficult...by far. You can always look up something you need to write. But coming up with conversation on the fly...so difficult.
  14. Hola Adam! Beinvenidos a este direccion! Yo soy Lori, de los estados unidos. Yo hable espanol por mas de 25 anos! Yo espero que usted tiene suerte con aprendiendo de la lengua.
  15. Hello. My name is Lori. I am originally from Louisiana, but I live in Georgia. I have been speaking Spanish for about 25 years, so I am pretty fluent. I also speak a little Greek, but I would like to learn more. I am looking forward to being on this website!
