  1. I don't write LOL over text but I overuse smileys (xD) and use "ahahah" instead.
  2. Hello! Thanks for sharing, you should post more in the Learning Japanese section! I would like to learn more too
  3. Kon'nichiha! Welcome to the forum, I hope you enjoy it
  4. Looks like something worth seeing before picking a course. I'll take a look
  5. So there's a quote from the TV show Fringe that goes something like this: EINAY KALYNTERO ANTHROPO APO TON PATERA TOY Any Greek speakers that can translate this? I'm just curious if the show-makers got it right, the English translation should be: Be a better Man than your Father. It's one of my favorite quotes and it isn't even in a language I speak...
  6. Welcome, I hope you enjoy the forum. I'll see you around
  7. Elvish is soft and sweet but seriously listen to Gandalfs' black speech in this clip: http://youtu.be/PK-lDXRjS3w?t=23s "Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulûk, agh burzum-ishi krimpatul."
  8. That's an interesting way to learn English. Thanks for sharing. It's great that we live in an age were every bit of human knowledge is one click away...
  9. Well, a picture is worth a 1000 words so we should be posting pictures I'm very concise in the way I write and speak. That's why I would never become a good blogger or freelance writer haha I just write for fun and about things that interest me.
  10. Writing those problems on a piece of paper usually helps, just write them down, you don't need to come up with a solution yet. If you write them down it will give your mind some peace and your mind won't drift to those problems as often.
  11. I like playing games, what better way to learn or practice something other than playing a game? This is a know Forum game, it's called the "Three Word Game", in which each user adds 3 words to the story and posts it, the next person adds 3 words and they keep going as long as they want. All 3 words must be in Portuguese, let's see how long we can go until the story stops making sense Please reply(don't quote) to the post with the full story and your extra three words. "Era uma vez
  12. I would love to swear in German, it sounds so harsh sometimes. Any language descendent from the Vikings is great for swearing :devil:
  13. Yes, speaking English as a second language here is very important, I would say that nowadays it is a must here. Due to globalization, if you don't speak English you will feel left out.
  14. It's spoken in Miranda do Douro, Vimioso and Mogadouro. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirandese_language Those islanders have really characteristic accents but they are still Portuguese
  15. Irish Proverbs: There is misfortune only where there is wealth. There is no pain greater than the pain of rejection The road to hell is paved with good intentions Though wisdom is good in the beginning it is better at the end The best way to keep loyalty in a man's heart is to keep money in his purse. Speed and accuracy do not agree. Pride feels no pain. Only the rich can afford compassion. Marriages are all happy; its having breakfast together that causes all the trouble No use carrying an umbrella if your shoes are leaking.
  16. I get what you're saying and it depends on the situation. I like reading out loud when studying because it helps with memorization, it's a study tip that I got some time ago.
  17. I would love to speak Elvish or the Black Language from Lord of The Rings, it sounds so visceral and guttural, I could curse people in it and everyone would bow down to me :devil:
  18. Great thread so far... I'm loving the quotes. My favorite English Quote: "Fly you fools!" - Dumbledore on Star Trek: Empire Strikes Back
  19. Welcome fellow "Tuga" Enjoy the forum!
  20. I think that learning a second language is very beneficial to children's brain development and is a skill that might help them out during their lifetime.
  21. Welcome and enjoy the forum
  22. Well I think they want to make the language easier to teach and learn. To make it more modern, that's why it's writing is moving away from the roots and is becoming more related to how the words sound, phonetically.
  23. We don't usually say "I love you" to our friends, pets or relatives. Well it's hard to explain, but in English you can say that you love everything and pretty much anyone that no one will find that awkward. In Portuguese we use the verb "amar"("to love") only in "extreme" cases... We prefer to say "I like you" ("Gosto de ti") or "I adore you"(Adoro-te") to family and friends and we usually only say "I love you" to our lovers or parents if we have a really close relation with them.
  24. I'm pretty sure it's English but it's hard to quantify how many speakers are in the World... how do you count them? And what level of fluency is required so you can count them as English speakers?
