Title: English Thread (beginners and bilingual)
Post by: Noxneo on 12 Décembre 2006 à 18:45
Que de l'anglais dans ce topic !


Actually, I hesitated a bit before posting this thread, but I guess it might prove itself to be pleasant.

Well anyway, this thread is dedicated to conversations in english ONLY.

The purpose is to practice your written english, as other members can correct you.
People can talk about anything here, as long as it's in english.

All right, let's start ! For how long have you spoken english, and how did you learn it ?

I speak english since the age of 8, I learned everything during my stay in the US (1996-1998). My parents placed me in an american school, which was the "hard way" of teaching me english. Today I am in the International School of Lyon, preparing a "Bac International".

And you ? :)

Well well well, I think I remember a thread "in English" was already started in this forum. It was a total failure, and if my memory is good it was due to a lack of real topic. Just saying "English here please" won't work, I really think this thead should have a topic.
Your question is a good start, but I don't think it will last long. But let's play along, we will see if the life expectancy of this topic is short or not another time.

So when did I start learning English? Well it feels like it was a long time ago (In a galaxy far far away... oops sorry wrong script :D) I started during what us French call "6e", taking three spoken languages: French (of course!) German and English. I was a bad student... Very bas, worst of the classe. My first marks where around 16 in German and around 8 in English. But as time passed, I started to really like English (I think my English and German teachers had a important part in this like/dislike matter) After two year of studying it was more like 16 in Englsih and 8 in German... I started German again from the beginning in "4e" and took an "European English" class.I made two trips to United Kingdoms during my scolarity, as part of the school program, one of ten days in "4e" living alone in family, and one of two weeks in "2nd". I failed my European Mention at the baccalaureat, too weak on the paper exam.
Then I think I found a way to really improve my skills in English: shortly after the baccalaureat I started to read English books. And that really really help. During my IUT I was first of the class (In English and In general :P)
I passed my TOEIC exam with 900 out of 990 points. After that my English teacher found me a placement in England, Cornwall. there I worked for three month, alone in the middle of a English speaking country, and I really think that's the best way to learn a foreign language.
Since then, I keeps practicing my English by reading books and watching movies, but I miss English conversation. And I think I am not as fluent as I was just after my work placement. I have lost a lot during my "Ecole d'Ingénieur" and now, as I'm not in contact with English speaking peoples at my work I don't really practice except for reading technical documents of course :).


EDIT: Well I found it! Has I said, this is not the first English thread over here, and the last one didn't have a lot of success : http://forums.zelda-solarus.com/index.php/topic,6778.0.html

Post by: dark8744 on 13 Décembre 2006 à 01:32
Nice topic!

The only way to learn English well is to speak in English with people and watch some cartoons or movies in English. My English courses were very boring, in secondary. I did stupid crosswords, stupid listening and reading tests. Also, the majority of teachers doesn't have good technic to learn us English. All the time, I slept in my English class, because the activities were so boring.

I learned English at my summer Job, Reitmans. Many workers spoke English and I tried to Speak English with them. It's the best way to learn English easier than boring English courses at School.

I think it's important to know how to speak English, because majority of people speaks in English.... I know, that's a lot. French population is not so high in the world.

Maybe English language is important, but French will be my favorite language and I wish this language continues to grow in the world, forever.



Note:

What does my signatures haves? It's a very beautiful signature! -_-


Don't put an "s". It doesn't need "s". (just your auxiliary "does")  Third singular is "has" ( no "haves")

BenObiWan've said it, a thread pretty like this one started a few years ago. The goal was the same as the main rule: to write only in English. I agree with BenObiWan when he said we should have a real topic to discuss about. ^_^

:P So...

I started to learn English in fourth grade when I was 8. Since then, I think I've become better, but I had to put my ducks in a row in order to comprehend this language... :rolleyes: I participated to some English camps and it helped me to talk with the correct accent. ^_^

What about your worst English experiences? :D Do you have some funny stories to tell? :)

You just need to practice. I didn't learn English quickly. I took many years to learn English.


Note: If someone sees mistakes, can you advice?  It's just to not repeat the same mistakes.
Title: Re: English Thread (beginners and bilingual)
Post by: thelvin on 13 Décembre 2006 à 02:19
Obviously it'll depend on what kind of errors. I'm pretty confident with my English, but certainly not confident enough to correct someone else's expression!

For instance, I would have formulated your demand : "Now, everyone, when you see some mistakes, could please offer some advices? Just for the sake of avoiding repeating them."
But that's just my personal feelings. I might have mixed up "offer" and "give", not like I practice them all that often.

I'm impressed.

Why? I never thought that so many members could talk in English.

I learnt to speak in English in Grade 6, I was in Intensive English, a special school year, splited in two. One part you learn the general things (French, Mathematics, Geography), and then the other half, you only speak in English.

I'm not the best English talked of ever (I'm starting to lose my skill, need to pratice a little bit more), but I'm not that bad too. Whatever, this thread is somehow a good idea...

Anyway, I hope it won't finish in flood...

Hi there! 'Skuze my English, I don't really pratice it...

However, I would discus witch you about something that I hate as hell: You know these people that thinks that just because something is translated ( most of the time badly) in english, it will be cooler! WTF! Why is English always supose to be cooler and fashioner? Is really "The legend of Zelda : Ocarina of time" cooler then "La Légende de Zelda, L'ocarina du temps"? Here I don't speak to Nintendo and the others, I speak for gamers and makers? English nicknames are as good as french ones! "La Légende de Zelda, L'ocarina du temps 2D" could be as cool as is it was in the English name! Hellooo, wake up! And if only it was in gaming, girls will know the "Dollz" forums.

Anyway, this looks like a lost battle to me.. thanks for reading you all and by the way this threat is really interisting!

Post by: Noxneo on 17 Décembre 2006 à 19:25
It's alright. I agree with you on the point that english should definitely NOT replace other languages. However, in some cases, using another language can give a certain feeling to the title. As an exemple, I use latin a lot in my game ("Luce"), in title but also in play. This is to vehiculate a sort of ancient, religious atmosphere.

But I definitely agree that anglophone titles are too much used.
Title: Re: English Thread (beginners and bilingual)
Post by: Memo on 17 Décembre 2006 à 22:40
Yeah, english title are used a lot because all the "professional" games have their title in english. Personnaly, I think that english is too much present in the domain of video games. It would be cool if the games were made like Ubisoft, in the main language : English, French, Spanish, Deutch and Japanese. The developpement of the games would be much longer but almost everybody would play the game in their own language.

One title per country is also a real mess for the developpers. A unique title for everyone is quite simpler.

But still, you can find some games whose titles are localized as the games they are refered to (Dragon Quest VIII)

Well, "Deutsch" means "German"... In German ^_^.

Now, if the very same screen of the very same game suggests "Français" too, well it just means the game translates each language name... In this language ;). Which is quite the common rule... And somewhat common sense, too.

It is not a mistake. Each language is simply written in its own language. French is "Français", English is "English" and Japanese is "$&#%" :)

Hey Noxneo, this topic is a good idea as it could help everybody (me first of course XD).

Well, I'm French, and as everybody I have started learning English at school. Actually, I began it in CM1 (sorry, I don't know the name in English). I think I'm not so bad, I can understand a lot of things, and I'm used to speak with English people in some forums ; even if I have never had much than the mark of 12 in this subject ^^'.

That's all ! ^^
If you people want, I have a little joke (not so fun but we're here in order to speak, right ?) :

"It's a French man who decides to learn English. In order to do it, he's looking for a teacher in the newspaper.
After a while, he sees this announce : "Donne cours d'anglais pour tout niveau, 10¤ la leçon". The man writes the address, and go there to take his first lesson. He knocks at the door, and as a man opens it, he asked :
"C'est bien ici pour les cours d'anglais ?"
"If if, between" answered the teacher.

...

Ok, it's REALLY not fun XD

See ya' ! =)

I personnaly learnt English on Internet sites and I went in USA for less thant two mouths soo I'm affraid my English is more than poor. Anyway lets rebuild a fluid discution arroud: "Is English becoming too big and causing other languages too die in long term (à lng terme)?"

Well... Don't you know English ain't world's most spoken language ?
It's Chinese. And as Napoleon said :
"When China wakes up, world will thrill" (well... Napoleon said it in french, and I bet he would have hated speaking english... but we're on an English thread ! :rolleyes:).
Anyway, what I mean is that soon (about 40 or 50 years), english will be totally forgotten, and we'll all have to speak chinese ! :ninja:





... Then, why not creating Chinese thread ?  :rolleyes:

I saw this Thread the other day, but I didn't post, I don't know why...

But I think I write better English than others xrite French on other forums :mrgreen:

Just a little question : Whi is/was in European section at school ?

Because I'm and I wanna know who's like me^^


I am. It's my fifth year in european section (1ère).

Explanation of European section to those who don't know what we're talking about :
This is a special section, where students, during Junior High and High school get more english lessons, plus, for the 1ere and Terminale students, one then two hours a week of DNL (Discipline Non Linguistique) : either mathematics and biology or history and geography in english (thoses two last subjects are more intersteting, since you learn about British and American history, which are normally not taught).
In 1ere, students pass Cambridge's First Certificate, an internation certificate, which proves you speak english fluently enough to be able to work in any english-speaking country in the world. Then, in terminale, if you get at least 10 in the DNL bac's test, and 15 in english bac's test, then you get your bac with European mention.

Post by: Morwenn on 15 Juillet 2007 à 16:10
Yeah, for me as an exemple, I had this year one hour and a half of history in English and two hours and a half of Biology in English. The matter : I don't know exactly the French words for Biology terms, so I had a very bad mark in Biology when it was the test between all the classes. Just enought to have more than 10 points, very bad :mrgreen:

So, I think I must work French terms of Biology if I want to rest alive the next year :lol:


But English is a good linguage easy to speak (exemple : "I like Zelda and Link" or "My flowers are beautiful", you see, it's very very easier than the german :ninja:), I like speaking English or reading heroic fantasy in English. Thanks to English, I can read the books of Raymond.E.Feist before everybody, very good :P

Anyway, I got the habit of watching many series in English with English subtitle for vocabulary. At the beginning, it wasn't really easier than I have expected. But I give this advice to anyone, who have in mind  to learn English whit happiness  :lol: It's better than play video games in English because the vocabulary is more restricted than series.

Well, if you play qualitiy video games in english, you may learn tons of vocabulary... I mean, games like Zelda, or Fire Emblem, or old RPGs... These are good !
And there are some books that may be interesting. The last one I read was The Hobbit. Both funny and useful !  :D

The english teacher I had two years ago had us watching movies to improve our english. Actually, this man was a real GOD ! I never had a better teacher !

There are movies that are easier to understand than others... One of the easiest is Star Wars III : Revenge of the Siths. It can even be understood without subtitles  :ninja:

 Japanese is very hard to learn, I just know some Kanjis (thanks to my chinese lessons) and some basic words like "moshimoshi" or "konichi wa", but I've never tried to learn hiragana or katakana...

I can confirm (I don't if the word exist or no :ninja:) that Zelda and old games are very bad games to improve in English :mrgreen:
I've the first Zelda one my Game Boy Advance, when I played, I didn't see taht the texts were in Englis, I read it like it was French.
I'm agree with Mooglwy to say Final Fantasy are better games than Zelda to leran more vocabulary in English :D

Personnally, I think that the best way to improve your english is to buy a MMORPG, and play on an English server.
It's a lot better than playing simple RPG like FF or dragon Quest because you'll be talking with real people, so you will never stop learning.  -_-

As Noxneo said it, we should speak about a subject which will not turn with post useless. Thus, I'm going to begin with a film which I would like to see " pirates of the carribbean 3 ". For those who saw the movie, I would like to have your critics and how you found him compared with both precedents. Otherwise, for those who, like me, never seen it, you can always say how you found the first and the second one. :)
Title: Re : English Thread (beginners and bilingual)
Post by: Noxneo on 18 Juillet 2007 à 09:01
I really didn't like PoC 3. The firstwas a very good entertainment, the second just made you spend an afternoon, but this one is very average. Of course, a movie with pirates just can't be bad, but the plot in this one is quite complicated for nothing, and the screenplay of Depp is not as good as we could have expected.

Anyway, let's get back to the movie licious decided we'll discuss about.
To say the truth, I've only seen PoC 1... Actually, I really loved it.
But some friends told me the two wasn't that good. Is it that bad ? And is it really necessary to watch PoC2 to understand the third one ?

Personally, the first was better than the second (even if I never really succeeded in seeing the beginning :D). The first, it was where the story starts, the beginning of the adventure, thus I preferred. The second was not so badly either. 
I hope that the third will be still better.

Reading some of your posts makes me wanna write this: PEBKAC[spoiler]Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair - meaning a user has a problem[/spoiler]. Many, many PEBKACs ^^.
Just imagine some English-speaking dudes who visit this forum and stumble upon this thread...
I really have an impression that this thread really has no purpose. The "English learning" thing seems to be an excuse rather than a real purpose, seeing what you guys post here.

Oh, well, if you wanna learn English and havefun, here are some quotes from the real bash.org, the English-speaking one:

<Eticam> And a girl asked why doesn't it taste sweet then
<Eticam> When she realised what she said her face became red like a spanked monkey ass
<Eticam> Then the teacher said, because you taste sweetness with the front of your tongue, not the part of your tongue back in your throat
<Eticam> The girl started crying and left class ^^

So, I ask this question : Binbin, are you cute or cruel ? (Amybe both of them ? :P)

Nox, I like your last picture, very funny, but I don't think a guinea-pig can defeat Gégé798, can't eat iron... I it was a T-Rex maybe, but not a cousin of athe rabbit :mrgreen:

And your stiries of fart aren't really intelligent...

I ask now a question about an Itilian music group I like : Do you know this music band, Rhapsody (Of Fire) ? :)


Second part of the post to answer to the post before me :) :

These jokes are really good^^
I already knew some of them, but the other aren't worse...

If I can talk about the purpose of this topic, I think it's the only topic where we can talk about all and nothing, but it's to improve in English too^^

Have a good day, my little kids :mrgreen:

Rhapsody is an italian band of symphonic metal in the style "hollywood metal", because their use a symphonic orchestra of 70 people and there are 50 people in the choirs. The use a baroque ensemble, and even great stars like Christopher Lee...

Their musics makke us think about fil music and orchestral music mixed with metal and traditionnal music^^

If you want the entire name if the style, it's "Symphonic Epic Hollywood Metal". They have seven albums :

- Legendary Tales
- Symphony of Enchanted Lands
- Dawn of Victory
- Rain of a Thousand Flames
- Power of the Dragonflame
- Symphony of Enchanted Lands II - The Dark Secret -
- Triumph or Agony

I like their musics because I like classic music and metal music^^

Post by: Morwenn on 28 Juillet 2007 à 13:27
Yes, the dictionnary is a good thing, very useful to translate words between different languages :P

But if you can speak or read or write bt yourself without the dictionnary, it's still better^^! I know thus : when you begin to read in English, you always need a dictionnary. When you are at the end of your first or second book, you don't need morever the dictionnary, you can understand the sentences without understanding all the words ^_^

But dictionnary is a good help if you don't read every days in English :)
Title: Re : English Thread (beginners and bilingual)
Post by: SaniOKh on 28 Juillet 2007 à 13:30
It reminds me what I once said to a friend: when you learn a foreign language, the best way to tell if you master it or not is to say what you think when you speak. If you concentrate more on how you're speaking, how you make your sentences, how you use your tenses and so on, you aren't masterful yet. You truly master the language when you concentrate more on WHAT you're saying rather on HOW you say it.

<geremon> I was in college, following class in our auditorium with a guy who could imitate every sound... a beatboxer if you like.
<geremon> We were not so far from the teacher... and suddenly he started snoring... I WISH YOU SAW THAT... and heard it too
<geremon> Not a muscle moves on his face, but the snoring is so loud... fills the whole auditorium, with little moaning and all
<geremon> People in the auditorium die of laughs, and the teacher turns towards us and says:
"WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING? I was doing small jobs too when I was in college and has to rest myself in class sometimes! Don't worry, the young man will copy the lesson from somebody else!
<geremon> Then he looks at us.... and after a 5 to 10 minutes silence asks with a dumb look: "By the way... who's sleeping???"

Well, I was wondering about create a thread like that but I remembered that one so I get it up !
My english isn't perfect, I have a long way to go before that... But it isn't that bad either :mrgreen:

Why did I up this thread? Because I think that english is very important and everyone should be praticing ^_^.

So let's start with an easy question:

What's your favorite Tv show/anime? And why? (yes there's only me to ask a question like that :mrgreen:)

My favorite Tv show is Charmed, I like it a lot because I like show where there magic, demon and stuff like that :).
My favorite Anime is Kanon, I like it because its sad,funny and touching at the same time. Kanon really know how to touch and change your feeling as your seeing it.

Now everyone come there and post, but don't forget, only in english !

I have several favorite TV shows, among which the IT Crowd, the Office (US version), and the Simpsons.

As for animes, I especially like Samurai Champloo and the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. I'm currently watching True Tears, which is quite good.
Title: Re : English Thread (beginners and bilingual)
Post by: SaniOKh on 07 Février 2008 à 13:13
I like Charmed a lot as well. There's another show I discovered a month ago and loved it, it's a sitcom called That '70s Show (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_That_%2770s_Show_episodes):
The show is about a group of friends: Eric Forman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Forman), kind and smart, but very wimpy; Steven Hyde (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Hyde), a rock loving rebel who often mocks others, especially when bad things happen; Michael Kelso (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Kelso) and Jackie Burkhart (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_Burkhart), who find themselves and each other irresistible, but are incredibly stupid; Donna Pinciotti (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donna_Pinciotti), a redhead tomboy, neighbour and girlfriend of Eric (a masculine girl with a feminine guy, I love this match); and Fez (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fez_%28That_%2770s_Show%29), a slightly pervy foreign exchange student, neither his real name, nor his home country are revealed in the show. The show also features Eric's parents: Red (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Forman), a severe, emotionless WWII veteran, and Kitty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitty_Forman) Forman, a stressed mother, as well as Donna's strange parents, Bob and Midge Pinciotti (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midge_and_Bob_Pinciotti), and a burned-out hippie with amnesia, Leo Chingkwake (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_Chingkwake).
I think this show stands out among other sitcoms because of it's humor (yes, it IS funny), shame that most of excellent jokes are left out in the French translation. It also features some memorable features, such as very elaborate dream sequences (often spoofing other shows, music videos, and even fairy tales), and "circles", scenes when the characters just smoked a joint (no actual smoking is shown, only smoke is visible), sit in a circle with the camera turning from one character to another, and say absolutely meaningless and hilarious things.
The Show started and ended the same years as Charmed did, it also has eight seasons. Give this show a try, it's really awesome.

Why did you remove the "can"? :huh: But "topic" really was a mistake. I'm not accustomed to say this kind of word IRL (I mean I thought topic was the right word to name a forum thread).^^ For the comas, I indeed have some difficulties because I mix it up with the French... And, like I was saying, my English is still far from perfect, so it's normal if I do some mistakes.

Because "I can still do some mistakes" is grammatically incorrect. It should be either "I can still make some mistakes" or "I still make some mistakes". Among those two, "I can still make some mistakes" imply that it is something you can do out of your own will but everyone is able to make mistakes if they want to so it's not pertinent to mention. Which leave me to beleive that you meant "I still make some mistakes" which imply that it is accidental.

Er... fFrench fries ? :D No, I'm joking... What is your favorite book in English? (I know, I'm not original :P)

It is quite the irony that you do the same mistake you just corrected for me.

My favorite book... well I don't read much book so I can't really answer.

Okay, thank you for the information, I didn't know.^^

So you don't read a lot... me neither. In English, I mean... At school, I read some Shakespeare; it's really bad, in fact. :lol:

Hehe, sorry, but it's like one of the only exception. It can be capitalized, both are accepted. :P

You know, I guess Sword Art Online can count as a book, since I guess you read it in English, even if it's a Japanese novel ;)

Well, we can talk about the 9/11, if nobody have inspiration for a conversation subject. And don't even think about making a joke on it, it's plane wrong.

It's thanks to my ex boyfriend, we were always switching between French and English, it was really fun with him. Too bad he dumped me in the end.

When you say "the government of the USA", you mean George W. Bush, right ? Do you think a dumbass like him could do something like that ? :ninja:

Well, if it is really a conspiracy, I guess it's kinda stupid. There always a better and more peaceful way than to kill 4 000 innocent citizens... Like killing only 3 000 of them :ninja:

It is already 11 years since this event, and people always talk about it up to October, and continue in the beginning of September, like it never happened between those ten months. I guess people gets easily bored of this subject.

Nothing much except hanging out with my gf.

I'm fluent in both French and English which is pretty natural for people living in Quebec nowadays (Actually is because I'm an internet lurker and I watched too many anime subbed in English). Actually I'd say that my written English is better than my written French but when it comes down to oral communication then I'm more at ease with French. I know enough Japanese for slight conversation but I've not been studying it a lot lately.

I didn't know about the existance of this topic. May I join the discussion?

Sure.
'Existance' is in French, in English you write it 'Existence'. Also 'topic' in English has a slightly different meaning than what you think. The best term to define this 'topic' is 'thread'.

I'm sure you meant to use 'concerning myself' as 'me concernant' and while it might be correct to spell it as such I believe it sounds quite awkward. Instead I'd suggest you to use 'about me'. Also 'card sound' should be written 'sound card' because 'card sound' means 'a sound that comes from the card'.
There are some other mistakes there and there but they're not that bad.

Since we're in this thread to get more used to English I thought it'd be a good idea for me to correct whatever I saw fit. I don't mean to sound haughty by doing this and if you do not like me correcting your post then I will stop doing it.

This is the whole point of this thread, please just do lol. 
I've been improving a lot lately even though I can't practice oral conversation at all, TV shows gives me some pronunciation examples (yay shameless american accent). Playing LoL and following several streamers along with related social medias helps a lot with common English, much better than what we're taught in classrooms imo.

"existance" with an a nor is in French, it's "existence" too.

Also 'topic' in English has a slightly different meaning than what you think. The best term to define this 'topic' is 'thread'.

Indeed, I did the same mistake in my first post here. It's because we always say "topic" when we talk about a thread in French... why? :P

You may of course correct me, you seem slightly better than me.

I have some difficulties with the differences between can, may, could, shall, should, etc. and with the "non plus".

If would be fun if people could start other topi... I mean threads like this, but for other languages like Spanish.

These are all words you will get used to by practicing. I have no idea what you are talking about for that "non plus" though.
