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 ? sourire

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 rit aux éclats) 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 tire la langue)
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 sourire.


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

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! yeux fermés


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

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

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...
