Re: RR in Spanish when you can't trill

My husband says my "mierda" sounds a little Cuban, they say something like mielda instead of the trilled R :oops: If coming from a lady I am in love with, I would find that irresistibly cute. But in everyone else, I do find it absolutely shredding to my ears. But I accept it since that is...

Re: Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Chinese Galaxy

夏天又来了。我家乡的夏日既闷热又漫长,天气从五月中旬起直到十一月下旬一点变化也没有。反过来说这儿的冬天挺漂亮的,白天暖和夜里凉爽,并且湿度舒服极了。冬日时通常有冷锋面过去,它们带来的凉风受大家的青睐。所以人们常说这里的冬天是真正的夏天。冬天天气好极了。夏天天气可好,又热又润,而且几乎每天下午有雷暴雨,过得不太舒服。除此之外因为天气不变而非常没意思,天气犹如一成不变,除非飓风来袭的时候,那时看天气的确能变得个很有刺激的爱好。我家乡现在发展得特别快,最近很多外地人来这儿学习、工作,其中大部分是从没有飓风危险的区域到的。 在我看来,没有经历过飓风的人有两种。第一种人一搬到这里就盼望他经历飓风的第一次...

Re: Complementary Challenges

Besides wanting to be pretty good at very quick language switching with minimal warm-up period, I would like to learn how to use ubiquitous software like the major operating systems for PC, MAC, as well as Microsoft Office and just the general computing terms to run a computer in each of the languag...

Re: Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Chinese Galaxy

I have skirted the waters of traditional characters again. I just go to the yahoo Taiwan page and pick some article and try to go through it. Interesting that at this point, I am relying on the sentence context to pick out the characters I can't recognize by figuring out the word that should go ther...

Re: Cette Semaine en Français

Les deux dernières journées je me suis concentré sur le français. Je considère que j'ai fait des progrès dans mes études d'allemand et de chinois, donc j'ai décidé de consacrer ces deux jours-ci pour donner un petit impulse au français aussi. Néanmois même s'il y a eu beaucoup de progrès dans ces de...

Re: Mission Spanish

Ok, nice. I need to start building my Hindi circle, you would be the first hahaha. If you start needing Spanish help before I start Hindi don't feel awkward to request my help, it does not have to be an even exchange, just as long as one has the other as a resource!

Re: Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Chinese Galaxy
