Здравствуйте!

Здесь я предлагаю Вам тренировать свой английский в небольших обсуждениях. Участвовать могут все - от начинающих до продвинутых студентов.

Сегодня я предлагаю сочинять на английском небольшие тексты: например, описание какого-нибудь места, где Вы были, описание места, где Вы хотели бы быть и т. д. Можете просто рассказать, какая погода сейчас на дворе.

Желательно, чтобы эти тексты были не очень длинными.

Если хотите, Вы можете написать Ваш текст дважды - на английском и на русском.

Ваши ошибки в английском (конечно, если они у Вас есть), могут поправлять другие участники этого обсуждения.


Hi!

Here I offer you a possibility to train your English in short discussions. Everyone can participate, from beginners to advanced students.

I suggest that today we should write in English short texts: for example, you can describe a place where you've been, or a place, where you'd want to be. Or you can just describe what the weather is.

It would be better if the texts weren't very long.

If you like, you can write your text twice: in Russian and in English.

Your mistakes in English (of course, supposing that you have any) can be corrected by other participants of this discussion.

I will start with a description of the weather in the place where I live.


The last few days it was raining a lot. The may bugs (just some days ago, hundreds of them were flying around the lamps in the park) vanished somewhere, for even they can't stand so much water.

It's not cold. Sometimes the wind gets very strong and furious, but the evenings are usually calm and that is a good thing.

My worst enemies in the world, mosquitoes, are coming in great armies with the rains. They just love the weather!


P. S. Corrections are appreciated!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BenCostell3

Oh, mosquitoes are terrible! What do you do to keep them away? Just use a lot of bug spray during the day and nets at night?

A few small corrections to make it sound more natural.

The last days it was raining a lot

This is not a grammar rule, but you should say "the last/past few days. Otherwise it sounds like you are talking about the Apocalypse)

Some days ago, hundreds of them flied

"hundreds of them were flying." You also might want to add "Just" before "several days ago" for a stronger contrast between then and now.

Hi BenCostell3,

Thank you very much for the corrections. I'm learning something new every day)

What do you do to keep them away?

I just use nets at night. During the day, there aren't so many of them.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BenCostell3

Ah, where I live, we don't have to worry about them much except during the evening.

I would definitely be somewhere by the sea. For example, on some Caribbean island. I guess it’s the best place to relax.

Weekend on the river in the taiga.

It was on the Lena River in Yakutsk. For the first time in my life, I went with a friend for a weekend in the taiga. A motorboat brought us to the island in the evening. It was a warm summer evening. But after a few minutes, I was terrified of mosquitoes and thought only of returning home. Mosquitoes simply stuck at me and there was no escape from them. However, my friends behaved very calmly and then I realized that Komors should not be afraid and should not be killed. Since then, they (these mosquitoes) are not a problem for me.

Thank you for allowing me to write a story.

Выходные на реке в тайге.

Это было на реке Лене в Якутске. Я, впервые в своей жизни, отправился с друзьями на викенд в тайгу. Моторная лодка доставила нас вечером на остров. Был теплый летний вечер. Но через несколько минут я был в ужасе от комаров и думал только о возвращении домой. Комары просто впивались в меня и от них не было спасения. Однако, мои друзья вели себя очень спокойно и тогда я понял, что коморов нельзя бояться и нельзя убивать. С тех пор они( эти комары) для меня не проблема.

Спасибо, что позволили написать рассказ.

Hi Avatar Hokage!

Thanks for the correction.

You're lucky to have the sun with you! Here it'll probably be cloudy for another month at least. :(

Well, regarding the weather, two days ago we had a tornado here in Howard County, Maryland. Tornadoes are extremely unusual here. Nobody died, fortunately. Although I don't live too far from where the tornado hit, we somehow barely even got any rain.

The mother nature has woken up from a long-long sleep and now she is enjoying friendly sunlights, because she knows that soon they'll fade away and the everlasting strangling mist will come. I'm happily looking at the clear sky and doing literally nothing during these amusing indolent (праздный) days. This very moment is so fragile and my latest memories are so vague that I can no longer sit there and type this text, I have to carpe diem.

Corrections n stuff, you know.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BenCostell3

Very nice! It sounds like you are getting to enjoy a lovely day, wherever you are!

A few small corrections: "The mother nature" ->"Mother Nature"

"sunlights"->"sunlight."

I have to carpe diem

People would understand you, but it sounds strange to use carpe diem in a grammatical way, especially because in Latin, carpe is an imperative (like бери!). We normally use it as a standalone sentence. I would say something like, "I can no longer sit here and type. Carpe diem!" Or "You know, carpe diem, right?" The second option would be very colloquial though.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/notspec1al

Thanks a lot, especially about Latin grammar in this case, I've never thought about that.

Once upon a time,three meteorologists were arguing about how to predict the weather.First suggested to use the average statistic data.Second offered to use the barometers and thermometers.And third suggested to toss the coin to see whose method will be used in the weather forecast.They found a coin and , suddenly, they remembered that there was one more method how to predict the weather. Random.org. They laughed. A salary of 4200$ a month was worth it. "No one will know" they thought. Two weeks later , one hundred and fifty one people died because of the unpredicted tai-fun on the West of the Florida."Hmm...No one will know about it ,right?"A month later three unknown scientists were shot as a judgement.Sad end ,or it's was a right decision ,what do you think?

One day my wife went to the store. “I need some frozen dough.” (Frozen dough! Do you know what is it? Ask a woman.) She searched all the shalves but could not find it. Then, she appealed to the salesman for help, but instead of dough she said “dog”. At first, the man understood nothing. His eyes got out from orbits and the jaw fell down on the stomach. But then he got the point and almost busted a gut: “And can it bark!? Can it bark!?” Then he helped my wife to find that frozen stuff, so the end was happy.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sergei49

Frozen dough is not a women’s caprice, it’s a necessity if you wanna make something really tasty, e.g. croissant, cuz it’s really hard to find time to make that without a so-time-wasting fuckery

Hi HrrW7!

Nice to see you here. And thanks for the lingot. ;)

Okay. Let’s start. In recent days, the weather was bad. Today’s weather is better than previous ones. I am going for a walk in a few minutes. That’s all.

Давайте. У меня, правда, любимых анекдотов нет...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sergei49

Как это?

А вот так. Книги люблю, а анекдоты специально не читаю. Потому что считаю что юмор интереснее, когда он не сам по себе, а часть чего-то (как, например, юмор в разговоре или юмор в романе). Но это только мое личное мнение.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sergei49

а анекдоты специально не читаю

Это, как говорят не у нас – "generation gap” У меня никогда и в мыслях не было читать анекдоты :) Их не читают, их рассказывают. И рассказывают по подходящему случаю.

Их не читают, их рассказывают

Во всяком случае, мне их не много рассказывали. :( Разве что на здесь, на форуме, попадаются иногда (только тогда я и читаю анекдоты) Подумаю, может, вспомню какой-нибудь и напишу на английском.

Анекдот.

  • A man is opening a new computer program. Something doesn't work and he calls to the company that produced the program. He says: "In your instructions you write that I have to press "Enter" to open the program. I pressed "Enter" but the program didn't open!". The worker on the phone answers: "Now release "Enter"". "Oh, it worked!" - cried the man.

Here's the link for anyone interested:
