  1. It's Bernard Werber. He's a French author but all his books were translated into English and many other languages. I love his fiction/spiritual stuff so much!
  2. A buddy of mine is Spanish and they are doing that in his family to keep the children bilingual as well. They seem to speak both languages great.
  3. Back in time, I wasn't happy about the fact that all these certificates have an expiration date. However, now I understand it's completely reasonable. Your English level most likely will significantly drop If you're not doing anything to practise your learned skills.
  4. So, that's the question! I've always been curious about that but can't really find this out on my own as I'm simply not a Spanish native.
  5. What about Andalusia region? Is there some kind of an Arabic-influenced dialect?
  6. Lucy, in Russian the name of Euro currency sounds a bit different. It's written as "евро" and it's pronounced as "йевро". I hope you have already heard it, so you may know what I'm talking about.
  7. It's jeez most of the time. You can even exaggerate by writing adding a lot of "e" letters. Works perfect, people are getting that.
  8. First off, I hope you both speak English or another language you're good at. Second, Google is ok but only If it's used for word-by-word translation. Otherwise, it may cause some misunderstanding. Which is fun sometimes btw.
  9. To me, it seems like a great idea! This will help us to get one another to know a little bit better. Also, you can start a Telegram messenger chat in English.
  10. Well, correcting people's speech by interrupting them will never work out. An English teacher AJ Hoge said that numerous times. I agree with him. I never felt comfortable in those moments. Instead, try to understand their speech and feel free to ask for some elaboration.
  11. I never use Google translate to work with full sentences. That's no good, even though the whole translation thing got more accurate slowly over the last 5 years. I prefer doing that word by word.
  12. To buy a SIM card in that area you have to have your passport / id with you. That's important. Otherwise, they will most likely refuse to sell anything to you.
  13. First, you both have to focus on mastering the American English and, if possible, the American accent. YouTube is a great way to master the listening skills. A lot of amazing YouTubers come from the US. They talk a lot in their videos. Analyzing their speech is key, not the grammar exercises. Listen, memorize, repeat.
  14. It's also great to speak all those Scandinavian languages, even though they are not widely spread in the world. I guess there are people who have mastered them all and feel super happy about that.
  15. English, Spanish, Italian, German, French In my opinion, that's a dream for any European speaker. He or she will be understood anywhere in Western Europe and far beyond outside.
