    Enlivo got a reaction from mctroi in An alternative to 和 for in-between sentences?   
    All my life I thought 和 simply means "and", and there are no grammatical rules about it. I am simply shocked to learn today that 和 only applies to nouns, such as 我的爸爸和妈妈. Apparently saying  他是我的哥哥,和他是我最好的朋友 (He is my brother, and he is my best friend) is wrong. So what would be the right way to say this sentence? I guess something like 他是我的哥哥. 他也是我最好的朋友 (He is my brother. He is also my best friend) ?
    Is there any alternative to this word? I can't think of any good examples yet, but what if there is a time when we need to combine two sentences together with the word "and"? Or does Chinese never use the word "and" between sentences (Just separate it with a comma or period)?
    Thanks in advance!

    Enlivo got a reaction from linguaholic in Interessiert ihr euch fuer deutsche Musik?   
    Warum finde ich deutsche Musik sehr langweilig?
    Einige gerne ich horen, z.B. 99 Luftballons. Aber wenn ich andere Musik in der Bibliothek horen, kann ich mich nicht erfreuen.
    Meine deutsche Lehrerin (aus Deutschland) findet auch amerikanische Filmen und Musik viel besser als deutsche.

    Hey everyone! Just found this forum today, and it looks really interesting  My first time joining a forum based on teaching and learning languages.
    So a quick introduction from me. I'm from Indonesia and my mother language is, obviously, Indonesian (Pretty similar to Malay). But practically in every year of my education, I have studied in English, so I guess my English might as well be my first language. I'm definitely looking forward to helping fellow forum members who want to improve their English. I guess Indonesian isn't exactly a popular language most people want to learn, but I'll pop in the Other Languages section once in a while as well, just in case someone needs a little help with Indonesian/Malay.
    On the other hand, I am also quite fluent in German, since I took a preparatory course to study in Germany, although in the end, my family decided against me going too far away. My German is actually already at the university level (I even went through the trouble of taking the language exam), but I definitely could use a little help for the grammar. There are way too many rules and a refresher would be nice.
    Also, I'm currently (re)learning Chinese. I have spent 6 years studying Chinese in middle school, but I was just too unmotivated to properly learn it, and after 3 years of not using a single Chinese word, I'm nearly back to zero again. I'm taking a Chinese course right now, and I'll be sure to check out the Chinese Language section to boost my studies.
    So, I guess that's it about me. I'll see you around in the forums!
