Language practice thread

Post by Aszev » Mon 15 Nov 2010, 19:32

This thread is for the purpose of practicing natlangs other than your native language.

It works like this: Write whatever the hell you want in whatever language you want, and then provide an English translation underneath it (so that people can at all keep a discussion going!).

Some rules:
- No conlangs (feel free to make a 'speak in your conlang' thread in Conlangs though)
- Don't write in your native language.
- Provide an English translation of what you wrote.

If you're making a post with corrections to someone's post you may be exempt from these rules. When you correct though, remember that people might not wanna bother trying to get a 1:1 correspondence between what they wrote and their English translation.

Ok, damit fange ich an. Ich hab die Idee für dieses Thema aus einem anderen Forum gestohlen... äh... ich meine, ich hab es mir daraus geliehen. Jetzt schreibe ich nur ein Beispiel, damit ihr sehen könnt, was man in diesem Thema machen soll!

Ok, I'll start. I stole... uh... I mean, I borrowed this Idea from another forum. Right now I'm just writing an example, so that you guys can see what you're supposed to do in this thread!

Waarom hebben jullie deze '----' aangenomen? Het ziet wel maar erg raar eruit!

Why did you guys adopt these '----'? It only makes it look really odd!

No te he ignorado, Ossicone. Sí, hablo algunas otras lenguas, y de hecho estaba a punto de hacer un hilo para esto :) Ahora puedes ver las que hablo allí.

I wasn't ignoring you, Ossicone. Yes, I do speak a couple of other language, and I was actually about to make a thread for that :) Now you can see what I speak over there.

Yo pusé los "----" para mostrar visualmente los dos partes de lo que escribí. Prefiero los 'dashes' en vez de esto.

I put the "----" to show visually the two parts of what I wrote. I prefer the dashes to this.

To me, "I think I will make many mistakes" sounds a little bit strange, like you intend or plan to make many mistakes; I would use "suspect" instead, but it works. In the last sentence, "Please, if it's needed, correct me!" would be passable, but sounds a little unnatural to my ear.

没关系,Wanderer!你说英语说的很好。

现在我的中文比日语舒服,可是我一定要练习说日语,因为明年春天我想去日本留学。

No worries, Wanderer! Your English is great.

Chinese is more comfortable for me than Japanese, now, but I really need to practice my Japanese if I want to go study in Japan next spring.

Claro que Trailsend es MVP. El es amable y bien educado.

Siempre quiero saber como se pone los carácteres chinos en la computadora.



Of course Trailsend is MVP. He is helpful and polite.

I've always wanted to know how to write Chinese characters on the computer.

Gracias, Ossicone. La invitación de Aszev me sorprendió!

¿Cuál tipo de ordenador usas? El mio tiene un modo de entrada incorporado para el chino.



Thanks, Ossicone. Aszev's invitation surprised me!

What kind of computer do you use? Mine has a built-in entry mode for Chinese.


EDIT: Also, "bien educado" = "polite"? That's fantastic! XD Learn somethin' new every day...

J'arrive toujours pas à comprendre pourquoi les citations doivent être aussi grosses sur phpbb3...

I still don't get why the quotes have to be so big on phpbb3...
