Tell us a bit about yourself in the language you are learning!

Hey guys :) There was a post about an idea like this in discussion section, so I wanted to bring it to life ^^

Write in comments a bit about yourself (where you live, your hobbies, your profession, languages you know, etc), but do so in the language you're learning! :D It will be fun ^^

Those who are fluent in the language that is posted, can correct the mistakes of the poster, so that we all can learn! ^^

Here's mine: (Spanish)

Hola. Me llamo Tamuna. Soy georgiana. Soy escritora y moderadora de Duolingo. Quiero aprender idiomas, leer libros, escribir libros y videojuegos. Hablo georgiano, inglés, ruso, francés, italiano, un poco español y alemán, y estoy aprendiendo chino y japonés.

Waiting for your comments! ^^

Hola a todas, por favor, no compartas tu edad en Duolingo.

Hello! My name is Kateri Marie. I am homeschooled. I am American and my native language is English. I live in the United States. I love to read, to learn languages, and food. I want to learn Russian, Norwegian, Turkish, Vietnamese, German, Swahili, Hindi, Marathi, and Indonesian. I learn Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Latin, Czech, Korean, Swedish, French, and Italian. I only speak English :(. I have a miniature husky. I do not like math and insects. Sorry for my bad Spanish.

Great discussion!

Awesome Spanish! ;) I only noticed 1 mistake so far (I myself still study Spanish ^^ ) - *una pequeña perra, as you already turned it into feminine gender :)

Good job and thank you!

Assuming you're female (based on your name), it's "americana," but, less ambiguously "norteamericana" (likewise, "educada") Also, Spanish doesn't use serial commas. It's "solamente." Not a native speaker, but I think "la comida" would be preferred for "food," and it'd be better with "me encantan" and "no me gustan ni ... ni ..." because they're followed by more than one thing.

Aprender * (just with one p)

Marati e indonesio * / Francés e italiano * (you have to change the y for an e when the next word starts with an i)

No me gustan las matemáticas ni los insectos * (Math is more general than calculus)

Besides that everything is right :)

你好! 我是老人家. 我會講英文, 我在慢慢學國語.

我覺得學中文學很有意思. 唐詩很有趣! 不過,對我來說太難了!

所以呢, 我比較喜歡看英文文學,比如說, 莎士比亞,狄更斯,奧斯汀 又好看也是沒有那麼難學.

Dia duit. Is mise Birgit agus tá mé i mo chónaí sa Ghearmáin. Tá mé ag foghlaim Gaeilge agus Fraincis ar duolingo, ach thosaigh mé ag foghlaim Béarla, Frainis agus Laidin ar scoil. Is maith liom leabhair as Béarla a léamh. Is bréa liom na teangacha, go háirithe an Ghaeilge. Is teanga deacair í agus teastaíonn go leor ama orm chun na bhfocal agus na gramadach a túig agus a foghlaim. Tá mé áthas orm go bhfuil an fhéidearthacht agam na ceisteanna a fiofraigh. Tá na daoine an-cabhrach sa cúrsa Gaeilge. And now I can only hope that someone will be able to read and understand this. ;-) since I am not really sure how much I messed up.

Birgit, is deas bualadh leat! Is mise Marie-Claire agus is as an Fhrainc mé. Tá mé í mó chónaí I dTuaisceart Éireann le blianta fada anuas. Cosúil le tusa, tá mé ag foghlaim na Gaeilge ar duolingo; taitníonn sé go mor liom ach caithfidh mé a rá go teanga casta í, afách. Is maith liom bheith ag léamh agus ag siúil cois farraige. D'fhoghlaim mé Béarla agus íodáilis ar scoil blianta fada ó shin... Your paragraph is really impressive please correct mine, I am not confident about writing anything at all in Irish.

Dia is Muire duit, a Marie-Clai. Is mise tosaitheoir freisin. Tá áthas orm go bhfuil ábalta éisteacht leat, Tá mé i mo shuí leis na leabhair as Gaeilge agus tá mé iarracht a déanamh. But I have to admitt it is pretty difficult, that's why I go on in English for now. It is so great to have a connection to someone and be actually able to talk, (mhm write) to someone. Thank you so much for your reply. I do not think I would be able to make any corrections as I am also struggling with grammar and vocabulary. but I love this language.

Dia is Muire Duit, Birgit ! Ich würde mit dir in Irisch sprechen aber ich bin nicht fliessend jetzt; ja, mein Deutsch Sprache ist besser ! Du schriebst viel, aber ich habe nicht alle einverstanden.

Hallo Eriu, ich bin Birgit und ich wohne in Deutschland. Ich lerne Irisch und Französisch mit duolingo, aber ich habe in der Schule begonnen Englisch, Französisch und Latein zu lernen. Ich liebe es Bücher in Englisch zu lesen. Ich mag Sprachen wirklich sehr, besonders Irisch. Es ist eine schwierige Sprache und ich brauche sehr viel Zeit um die Wörter und die Grammatik zu verstehen und zu lernen. Ich freue mich über die Möglichkeiten Fragen zu stellen. Die Leute im Irisch Kurs sind sehr hilfreich. Je ne pense pas que je peux écrire le texte en francais, mais j'espére que tú peux comprendre la teneur. Je m'appele Birgit et j'habite à l'Allemagne. J'étudie "Irish" et le francais en duolingo, mais j'ai commencé étudier l'Anglais, le Francais et le Latin dans l'école. J'aime lire des livres en Anglais. J'aime des langues, surtout Irish. Well, I did not speak French for a very, very long time. Tá áthas orm go foghlaimíonn tú an Ghaeilge.

October 30, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Eriu_1

Danke schön, Birgit. Ich einverstande in Deutsch und Französisch.

Einige korrekturen (aber diesen Fehlern verhindern nicht die Verständnis): "Je m'appelle" und "j'habite en Allemagne", -"tu" (ich denke, ist es ein Tippfehler) -"j'espère" - "français" -In Französisch "Irisch" ist "l'irlandais" -"j'ai commencé à étudier"

Slán !

Я изучаю русский в качестве хобби. Просто в феврале прошлого года я проснулась и вдруг решила, что было бы здорово говорить на иностранном языке. Я уже несколько раз была в России, и через месяц я вернусь в эту прекрасную страну (получила свою визу уже))).

Я затрудняюсь ответить на вопрос «зачем ты решила заниматься русским?». Честно говоря, я сама не знаю. Я совершенно случайно выбрала этот язык, но, я никогда не жалею о том, что решила изучать русский. Ведь этот язык такой богатый, уникальный и, что важнее, просто звучит довольно интересно :)

Русский никогда не казался мне чем-то сложным. Может мне особенно легко даются языки, но, русский является первым языком, которым я занималась всерьёз (в школе испанский казался мне намного сложнее))). Самой сложной для меня частью русского языка является разница между совершенными и несовершенными глаголами. Мне уже много раз объясняли эту разницу мои друзья, но я всё равно совершаю ошибки :)

Надеюсь, что в конце концов я избавлюсь от своего акцента. В любом случае всем очевидно, что я иностранка, поскольку я часто забываю где ставится ударение :)

От одного до десяти мои друзья оценивают мой русский на 9 (по их скромным стандартам. Конечно же они хвалят меня). Я буду заниматься, пока не оценят мой русский на 10 :)

А если русские читают - привет! Возможно мы увидимся в Санкт-Петербурге))) Я - темноволосая девушка с ужасным американским акцентом))) XD

Ясно, что вы многого добились в течение вашего изучения русского языка! Вы могли бы поделиться немного о том, как вы изучаете: которые другие сайты вы используете, сколько вы слушаете язык и т.д.?

November 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Tamuna10

Вау, просто супер :O Ваш русский правдо превосходный! Не часто удаётся встречать американцев с таким прекрасным русским ^^ Браво! И об акценте не волнуйтесь, поживёте в стране и всё уладится само собой ;) (говорит модератор русско-французского курса ^^ )

Your comment was very nicely done. Just a small correction - you should put "a" before student, so it would say, "I'm still a student." Or you could say, "I'm still studying" if you wanted to use the verb, not the noun.

Hallo ich bin eine fransozische Studentin. Ich lerne English und Deutsch in die Uni. In Duolingo, beginne ich Irisch zu lernen denn ich finde das gut und ich liebe keltische Kultur? Ich habe einen English account denn diese Sprache ist nicht verfügbar für fransozische Sprechers. Ich wurde meine English und Deutsch verbessern. Bitte, konnen Sie machen Korrekturen !

October 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/birgit72635

Hi Eriu, en allemand tu écris "französisch" et tu étudies " an der Uni" . Tu prends l'article a dire " ich liebe die keltische Kultur" . Tu ne prends pas le "s" dans le mot "Sprecher". Et " Ich möchte mein Englisch und Deutsch verbessern. J'espére que je peux aider, mais je dois faire des excuses pour mon petit habilité en francais.

October 29, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Eriu_1

Danke schön, Birgit ! Enchantée de faire ta connaissance. On se comprends, c'est le principal. A la place du verbe "prendre" (take en anglais) il faut utiliser le verbe "mettre". Par ailleurs, il y a une petite erreur d'accent ("J'espère"), mais je ne saurai même pas t'expliquer pourquoi c'est grave. Peut-être qu'un professeur de français ou un linguiste qui lit cet article pourra y répondre :) La langue allemande est plutôt difficile à apprendre pour moi (surtout pour les cas et la place du verbe). Par ailleurs j'ai du mal à retenir le vocabulaire allemand. Ce serait bien si l'on pouvait échanger (=discuter) en allemand et en français ! If you want I can write this in English (or I can try in German).

Hi Eriu, I have only just seen your response here after I answered to your post above.

Thank you for your correction of my mistakes and I actually understood nearly everything you wrote ;-)

Hmm, I haven't practiced Spanish in about a year. But, I'll give it a go and won't use an electronic translator to catch my errors. :P But, I'll use the translator after to post it's suggestions under my own.

Hola! Me llamo "Usagi" es como se dice "conejo" o "conejito" en Japones. Los mejores animales son gatos de casa y Snow Leopards. Pero, es posible que estoy mas similar de los conejitos. Vivo en los estados unidos por todo mi vida. Reciente, viaje a Canado por el primer tiempo con LindaKanga. Fue mas divertido! Vimos a "Niagara Falls". Fue me sueno desde mi juventud. Soy un moderador@ mundial de Duolingo desde hace cuatro an~os. En general me gusta mucho leer los libros y fanfiction, acampar en las montanas en todas las estaciones, y estudiar los idiomas. (En este momento, mis idomas favoritos para estudiar estan Espanol, Japones, y American Sign Language.)

Hello! My name is "Usagi". It is how to say "rabbit" or "bunny" in Japanese. The best animals are house cats and Snow Leopards. But, it is possible that I am more similar to a baby rabbit. I have lived in the USA for my entire life. Recently, I traveled to Canada for the first time with Lindakanga. It was very fun. We saw Niagara Falls. It has been my dream since my childhood. I am a global moderator for duolingo for 4 years. In general, I like best to read books and fanfiction, camp in the mountains all year round, and study languages. (At the moment, my favorite languages to study are Spanish, Japanese, and American Sign Language.)

Ok, Google translate said I should have written it this way:

¡Hola! Mi nombre es "Usagi". Es como decir "conejo" o "conejito" en japonés. Los mejores animales son gatos domésticos y Snow Leopards. Pero, es posible que yo sea más parecido a un bebé conejo.
