Yeah, it was very great. It was the first time for me, but I want to do i once more. Here on Mallorca, i bought my own Snorkeling-Set, so i can go snorkeling, when I'm on the beach.

A few questions for you.

Do you like English? Is English hard? Do you see American or British people often? Do you learn British English or American English? Do you like American television shows or movies? Do you have any questions about English? Have you been to the USA or UK? Do you like American food? Do you learn any slang in school? Do you have any funny stories about English class in school?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MelanieHochsmann

WOW! There are a lot of questions... Here you have my answers:

Yes, I like english. English doesn't seems to me very hard. I actually never saw an englishman face to face. I learn american english. Yes, I like American movies. I don't have questins about english yet. I never was in England or America, but I would like to go there. I don't like american food so much.I didn' learn any slang in school. And , yes I have few funny stories about english class. But, why so many questions?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/sweilan1

Why so many questions? Just to get someone talking.

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MelanieHochsmann

OK, but nobody put me so many questons untill now. Than let s put some questions to you too. What is it your hobby? Where are you living? Which is your fovourite country? Do you like american or british english?:))

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/sweilan1

Hobby - I guess - learning German. I like to read about German grammar and learn new German words. My new favorite German words now - Papperlapap and Mumpitz. I live in the US. My favorite country is the US, but I enjoy Germany, also. British English can be so different from American English. Often Americans have trouble understanding a British person when the British person speaks. The accents are so different. Another language I know and use is American Sign Language - it is the language used by Deaf people.

You don't like American food? Most American food comes from different countries. For example, many Americans eat Bratwurst - especially in summer. Also, Mexican food is very, very popular in the US. Have you ever tried tacos, enchiladas, or burritos - delicious (lecker)! One of my favorites - a submarine sandwich.

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/sweilan1

Food is just another word for "cuisine" and it is used more often than the word "cuisine".

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MelanieHochsmann

Well, now I can say that you are the first person I ever meet who is interested by grammar so much! I really appreciate you!

Sincerely I never tried tacos,enchiladas or burritos, but you made me curious...

And, what something else about you?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/sweilan1

I know several people who are interested in grammar. I know that is unusual.

I enjoy British comedy television shows. Sometimes the accents are too difficult for me and I have to use subtitles.

If you ever visit the US, you will see Mexican restaurants everywhere. A lot of Europeans who visit the US love American style breakfast.

I hope my English is easy for you too understand.

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MelanieHochsmann

If you want to know I like british accent more than american accent (I think is the original accent), but american english is easier.

I understand your English very well.I like to exercisse my english with you.:)

Well, I like many kind of books: adventure books, psychological books, police books. But I like especially Dostoievski. He is my favourite author. You?

Hey, is it possible to integrate me in your talk? I am from germany and I stay in australien for three month now. At the moment the weather is very bad so I can not do somethings outside... New subject? Maybe... housepets? Have you someone?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MelanieHochsmann

Of course you can talk here. Well, about teh housepets I can say i have a lot. My pets are not actually housepets becouse they stay outside, in the yard, but they are pets. And I have three dogs, ten cats and few aquarium fish. Of corse, is not so easy to take care of them, but these pets make me feel so happy! I like especially cats even though the dogs are more obedient than them. But what about your housepets?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MagnusThie

Wow! That are a lot of pets! My family has two cats, two pond with different kinds of fishes and two tortoises. But the tortoises are very shy. You can see them only in the summer when the sun shines. They rest on warm stones next to the water. All our pets are autonomous so that we can make holiday. You take your dog in the holiday?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MelanieHochsmann

Two ponds with fishes and two tortoises? It sounds amazing! I never had pond or tortoises. Instead I have enough cats:) and dogs. My parents saved and brought them from the street. About the dogs, we don t take them in the holiday. It is too difficult to take care of them among other people. And what something else about your pets?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MagnusThie

That is very great from your parents to save them! No... that was all about my pets.... Well, when we get the tortoises they were run away always and we had to look for them in the garden :D But now the pond have a fence. At first it was not height enough. The tortoises can climbing. After one week we build a heighter one and now they can not run away any longer ;) Do you wish yoursels a new kind of animal? Or If you can wish what kind of animal you would like to get? (I hope you understand my question...)

Well, let s see...I would like to have maybe some rabbits and a dove. And, why not?(it may seems weird and imposible even) I would like to have even o little tiger around me... You?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MagnusThie

If you go out with your tiger the people on the street would look ofter you :D And no one would take your wallet ;) When I was a child would have a snake. I found it easy to make holidays. One or two mice in the cage the heating lights turn off and then you can go three weeks away. But now i would like a dog. But not so a small one. I want a sheepdog which can protect me.

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MelanieHochsmann

Yes, you are right about the tiger:) But I like felines and I wold like to have one bigger than a cat. About the dog we actually have a German shepherd dog among all our dogs. It is very smart and devoted. Spaking about pets, did you saw the movie ”The secret life of pets”?

Vor 2 Jahren

https://www.duolingo.com/MagnusThie

I saw yesterday a movie about Dubai... They have now a law, if i unterstand it right, that it is not allowed any more to drive with big animals in the car on the hightway :D The show they showed a tiger in a beautyful car on the street. I think if you live there it would be your dream country in view to live with big felines ;) No, I have not saw this movie but when I am going to go back to my country i want to see it. By the way, I am ill at the moment, so I am happy if I can keep my streak :( And because that, I answer so late..
