  1. I'm from Norway and I usually communicate in English. And I often find myself thinking in English almost more often than Norwegian. I'm just so used to talking in English that it comes natural to think in English for me. I do it unconsciously and sometimes I notice it and think. Hey I just thought in English, oh well and then I continue thinking in English. 

  2. At first it may seem boring trying to learn the grammar and pronunciations an so on. But when you actually get good enough to speak complete sentences with decent pronunciations, that's when it gets fun for me. Especially if you sit in a bar and someone talks loudly in a foreign language thinking you can't understand what they are saying. And you are just sitting there mildly amused, that sums it up for me at least.

  3. For me it's the speaking which is the hardest part and let me explain why. When you read or write you are by yourself and can use time and effort to really concentrate on the subject and give it your 100%. But when you are speaking you have to come up with the correct words in the right order and right pronunciation quite fast as you're probably speaking to someone.

  4. "The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were to achieve something beyond themselves". -Alan Watts.

    This I feel like more people need to know. Many people usually gets depressed by trying to achieve more and more when they miss the greater aspect of life which is to enjoy it in the moment just being alive.
