Hello and hola!

Recommended Posts

My name is Alie and I am from Anzoategui, Venezuela, but I grew up in the United States. My main native language is English and I am fluent in Spanish as well. Languages and linguistics are a passion of mine, especially sign language, which seems to be a pretty unpopular language interest in this forum, but it is a huge interest of mine. I am intermediate in ASL and am learning my own country's sign language. I like YouTubing, drawing, reading, writing and of course, learning. If anyone wants to chat or do a language exchange, please don't be shy, I don't bite! Thanks for reading, have a wonderful day. :)

Me llamo Alie y vengo de Anzoategui, Venezuela, pero me criaron en EE.UU. Mi idioma nativa principal es el ingles, y también hablo español fluidamente. Los idiomas y la lingüística son una pasión mía, especialmente lenguaje de señas, lo cual no parece ser muy popular como idioma de interés en este forum, pero si es un interés grandisimo mio. Estoy a nivel intermediado en el Lenguaje de Señas Americana (ASL) y estoy aprendiendo el lenguaje de señas de mi propio país. Me gusta YouTubear, dibujar, leer, escribir y, claro, aprender. Si alguien quiere tener un chat or hacer un intercambia de idiomas, por favor sin miedo, que yo no muerdo! Gracias por leer, ten un día maravilloso. :)

      Vocabulary Expansion
      Did you know that in English we don’t eat coffee? We drink coffee. We have coffee. We imbibe coffee. We sip coffee. But we don’t eat it. Eating involves mastication, involves chewing. 
       
      What about ice cream? We don’t eat ice cream, either. We don’t chew it. However, we don’t simply swallow ice cream, either, as if it were a liquid! We have ice cream. We don’t eat ice cream. We don’t imbibe ice cream. We don’t sip ice cream. We just have ice cream. That’s it!
       
      When speaking of consuming any solid food, semi-solid food, soft food or liquid, the safest, and always correct, verb to use is “to have”. 
       
      Recently, I had eggs cooked in butter with sliced tomatoes and hot peppers. I also had milk with two tablespoons of Nescafe Clasico stirred in. What did you have recently for one of your meals?

      Gems from Class
      interested vs interesting
      Both interested and interesting are adjectives.
      interested says something about how the subject feels
      For example: I am interested in travel.
      In this sentence, “I” is the subject. This sentence talks about how “I” feel.
       
      interesting says something about the power of  the subject to make other people feel a certain way.
      For example: Travel is interesting.
      In this sentence, “Travel” is the subject. This sentence talks about the fact that “travel” has the power of making people feel a certain way. 
       
      For more practice and to subconsciously learn the rules, do some online exercises. Here is a  link. Repeat the exercise many times until you get 100% correct repeatedly.
       
       
      Pronunciation & Intonation
      met SOUNDS LIKE set, bet debt, jet, let, net, pet
      met is the simple past affirmative form of the verb “to meet”
       
      meet SOUNDS LIKE meat, seat, neat, feet, feat, Crete
      meet is one of the simple present affirmative forms of the verb “to meet”
      the other  simple present affirmative form of the verb “to meet” is meets
       
      Tip: When reading and writing, use your voice! When you use your voice, you’ll be less likely to write “met” when you mean “meet”. You’ll be less likely to  write one word, when you really mean another one.

      Who says we got time to diligently find people to speak Spanish with? And who said you can only exchange English to Spanish and vice-versa? Who said, who said. Let’s bend the rules a little and create a free for all chat room. Find friends, add prompts  that I will then add to this post for everyone to view and respond to, as well as your USER ATTACHED so that everyone knows who wrote it. No more awkward beginnings with strangers, and just let it flow...
      Or wait a minute... LET IT GOOOOOOOOO! LET IT GOOOOOO!
      Frozen stand or Anti Frozen stand? When did you first watch frozen? What was the first Frozen branded item that you help in your hands... the DVD? A sticker? [RichWords]
      You can add a translation to your Spanish post, so that you and the others can understand what you posted. We all know you’re going to look back 3 seconds later and not know what the hell you just wrote or meant. Adding the translation or hints will help you learn Spanish and memorize things faster (I think... at least it should)

      I like to learn new languages. However, for traditional classes and tutorials, they are costly and boring, and I lack of opportunities to practice. For internet learning, it lacks of motivation which keeps me learning the new language. Makes me so headache~~~
      Recently used an app called FYLP and it helps me find a language partner.
      As I want to learn Japanese, I have been matched with a Japanese language partner, and we keep chatting using the app. At first, we use English to chat. As we are more familiar with each other, as she keeps teaching me new words and structures, we start using more and more Japanese to communicate. We always share our daily life with each other.  I can learn Japanese in a funny and effective way through this app as Japanese immerses in our communication. I do not need to memorize hardly.
      I can know more about Japanese culture too.
      And I can make more foreign friends through this app too~~~
