  1. Yea...I agree with you. A locational situation. If I were in an office meeting with fellow co-workers, I could never use words like "yow", "zeen", "Kool"...highly inappropriate. Mannn....I could get fired for that. Santa Claus aint gonna higher me if I get fired. :santa:
  2. It would be an absolute boring world for me to communicate without using slang. Agreeably, it's the older folks that disdain this modern culture, but it's appealing to me and am sure to others who are just coming up. Yup. I do not use some forms of slang though, because they are highly inappropriate.
  3. I also like Italian. At the moment I'm studying Spanish of the Spaniards; and what I've come to realize is that both of the languages are very similar. There are different variations, but it will make it easier for me to study Italian.
  4. I'm working on learning French at the moment. My girl friend loves French, and you know you have to please the woman in whatever way you can. I downloaded the babbel app on my tablet and I'm thinking of purchasing Rosetta Stone.
  5. I understand exactly what you mean. Your family being Croation would make communication and share less meaningful should you try to relate to them in your native tongue. The good thing about my family members is that, even though they live in England, France, and Panama, most of them understand my creole and they also speak English (which is one of the languages I am proficient in). The younger generation in my family are also learning English, even in Panama.
  6. I know there are quite a few folks who take fictional languages serious. Like the lady who you said translates poems into a fictional language. I however, am not a fan of them languages...I don't really see how learning it will enhance my worth on a wider scale.
  7. Essentially yes...getting the basics of the language. The basics represents the foundation. Without the foundation there can be no stable construction.
  8. This too is very important. What better way to learn a language that to converse in the language with someone who is already proficient in speaking the language. I've always graved this situation in real life, but I guess am not seeking hard enough to find a Spanish pal. Interaction forces the mind to think in the foreign language.
  9. Your strategy was very smart and effective. People learn best by doing. This is exactly what I would do. I can't think of a better way to teach. I would also incorporate the watching of videos and audio-visual programs.
  10. Spanish is a favorite language of mine. I'm currently in the process of learning the language (formative stages); so to be honest, I don't really know how to flirt or be romantic. I guess it comes with time...and situation as well. If I find myself with a Spanish girl, I may have to think up something quick por la chica
  11. I'm not sure if there is a thread about this somewhere on this forum. But I'm interested in getting some responses now...so amo post this. I believe scientists don't affirm that animals have a language, if I'm correct. It seems to me that they do communicate with each other though. So, what would we refer to their communication as? :speechless:
  12. I don't have much either. There's really just one language that I'm focusing on next year -and it's Spanish. I plan to enroll in an online school. Spanish is already a study of mine, but I'm planning to take it to a master's degree level.
  13. I don't think you can ever forget your native language. Somehow, somewhere, locked up deep in the chambers and tunnels of your brain, that language is lying their asleep, waiting to be aroused. Well, I think it also has to do with how long you grew up into your native language. If you left your homeland as a mere toddler, you are more likely to forget your native language. What do you say about that?
  14. Interesting, I'm not too fund of putting markings on my skin...though sometimes I find myself writing in the middle of my hand. Writing is helpful...but you asked about silly things done? Well, I've tried speaking to my invisible friend in the foreign language. Well, it worked...my invisible friend's voice could be heard in my head as she replied to my questions and statements in the foreign language.
  15. If this is indeed something that is legit and real...how can one get enrolled. I've never heard of this before, and so it kind of sounds outlandish...but I know it could very well be possible. If I can indeed do exercises to improve my speech, then why not? :amazed: Where did you come upon this story?
