- English practising
I am learning English, but I need to practise it.
I am looking for people who want to practise their English : speaking, listening and writing. We could also organize some events online or in person.
Feel free to contact me by message.
Hi @VioletteDeau, you will probably find here native English speakers. It's the best way to learn a proper english, by writing and talking with them. Have a good day.
Good I need to improve my english also. Then, what do you think of proposing a new topic, just saying at the entrance that we could discuss it in english?
I don't know what kind of open topic in English we could create. Like a kind of game maybe ?
Hi all, I'm currently watching The Office again, thr UK version, anyone a fan of this program ? It's my absolute favorite comic show of all time, I've seen each episode something like, what, 20 times. I hadn't watched it for quite a while now, maybe 10 years. It look even more brilliant to me now. Just perfect really. The greatest peace of British comedy of the last 20 years, and that's not me saying.
@Naweez_heer : An apien told me about this program, few months ago but I haven't seen it already. (arrgh, I can't remember if I can use "ago" with preterit). Do you have a free link ?
@VioletteDeau : a game would be great ! Do you or someone else have an idea ? We could just tranpose some of our apiens games in english, like writing poetry, or "who will have the last word", or writing a collective english (funny) story, or...? They might be a lot of funny games, and perhaps specificaly anglo-saxon ...
We could also discuss about movies, but also places we'd like to share or... ?
@Ambre31 no I haven't, I've got the DVDs with me here
It is a quite specific kind of humorous British poems from Ireland which was used during the Victorian period. Maybe it is a bit too challenging because of the rules you need to follow. Don't you think an open subject for writing poetry or songs or stories in English would be easier ?
An example of Limerik I just created (not good) : (order of rhymes : aabba, phrases with 'a' are longer, and with 'b' are shorter)
There was a man named Erik Klaus
He lived in Paris with his spouse
One night he met a friend
They painted the town red
Since then he lives in the doghouse
Well, let's see if we can do it.
I guess @Abderian could help a lot also, for Limerick or else 🙂!
Today, is a day that count a little bit more,
For two people I aim this limerick for:
She' celebrating her brithday,
He's meeting his self today.
I'd like to be with them, north's calling as a core.
I can't. Simply can't.
Everybody wants me to stop philosophizing, but I Kant.
And what about a limerick without philosophia?
Well, if you insist.
A man without the burden of philosophy
Is for sure something like a nobody;
You can pass through what he says
Since he may not verse all his days:
So what are thoughts without poetry?
Hi! We learned (polite) limericks at school and even with music, great was my surprise when I bought a book with REAL limericks in Ireland some years ago, but here is my attempt for this forum:
I wish you success with your English
Or even the version that´s British
Cos everyone speaks
A version that creaks
That the real English soon will extinguish
