Hi, I am looking for someone to speak English. I like cooking, traveling, country music.
My name is Dorothy.
Hi Dorothy! Nice to meet you. I like to play soccer, read, and ski. Have you traveled to any interesting places? I'm American by the way.
Minor correction - The first sentence should probably end in "with" (technically not grammatically correct, but often ignored) or "with me."
Hi, Nice to meet you too. I lived 12 years in the states. One year in North Carolina, 9 years in Florida and deux years in NY. Ans I traveled through the states. Now I'm back to France since 2012 and I feel I'm losing my English. So, I register to Duolingo to see the basis again . I know I make many mistakes with particles and grammar . I thank you to correct me.
What about you? What's your name? Which state are you from?
I live in New York, but far away from New York City. I also lived in Pennsylvania while I was attending college. I took French throughout high school and have been surprised at how quickly I reviewed. I'm sure I still make a lot of mistakes, but I definitely understand more. I think I'd like to travel for work or leisure and relearning a beautiful language would certainly help with that.
I live in Marseille, south of France. I like to live in sunny places. I enjoyed very much to live in Florida. I didn't like NY so much. Once, I traveled trough the country with my car from Massachussets to Florida then from Florida to San Diego and then Came back to Florida. That was quiet a trip. # months on the road. Which place would you enjoy to see in France? ...except Paris of course....
(Please correct my English)
No problem! I would say "I enjoyed living in Florida very much," since this is one case where the infinitif in French translates better to "verb + ing" in English. Others seem like typing errors (trough -> through and quiet -> quite.
That is a very long trip though! I think I'd like to go to Nice and Lyon and maybe some of the countryside and châteaux. I'd love to see the Mediterranean Sea and some of the mountains. Although I'd probably gain a lot of weight from eating so much food!
Haha it's the weekend, so I have a lot more free time. I'm a mechanical engineer. I'm used to the cold and snow from living in this area; I often say that they preserve us like a refrigerator! Does it snow often in France? I know that it is very rare in Paris.
I think you would enjoy it very much. I know Nice because I have family overthere. The Loire Valley is fantastic. I've seen it few times. On side of the states, I lives also in Montreal and Toronto, which was very nice despite the weather. What is your job, except answering on duolingo...lol...
It snows in mountains in France. People like to ski very much but not me. I prefer swimming and walking on the beach. Do you know to ski?
Je suis en Amérique, et j'apprends le Français. Je peux toi parler avec.
Bonjour, Je vis en France . Où vis-tu en Amérique? Comment t'appelles-tu? Correction de ta phrase: Je peux parler avec toi.
I would love to talk to you in English and I can help you with your French. I lived many years in USA.
Ok! Génial! Je suis sûr vous pouvez m'aide. Je m'appelle David. Comment allez vous?
Bonjour David, I correct you:
Ici, c'est le matin et il n'y a pas de nuages. Il fait beau.
I'm glad you have nice weather. In which state are you living? When I lived in the states, I lives one year in North Carolina, 9 years in Florida, 2 years in NY and I traveled a lot through the country.
You should say "Je suis américain(e)" to indicate nationality. "I'm in America" seems awkward unless you say J'habite or Je vis, français isn't capitalized, and toi should come after avec. Trying not to sound harsh, but that can be difficult when correcting.
Ah ok, I think in that case Je suis des États-Unis or Je viens des États-Unis might be better for that, just because America doesn't always mean USA.
