Trying start a new conversation in English

Hello guys!

When a read the posts here, i see many of them write in Portuguese, not in English, for example.

I dont know why the people who study anothe language, prefer write in their natural language, but, i think this is because they have a little scary of do mystakes.

Well, I'am just a intermediate student and I like feedbacks (the negatives are so greats), because this help us to improve our skills.

So people, let's interact more, dont be afraid with errors, everybody here and in any place is ever learning!!!

OK Gelsimar, I agree with you in many points, but I think the real difficulty in this case in a space like this here is the difference in levels.

I'm not even an intermediate student, but I am not afraid of making mistakes, how great these mistakes can be (as you can see in this answer). For someone who knows more than me, is easy. Just be generous and the conversation can continue. But to who knows much less, it is difficult to participate.

Yeahh, I agree with you, but we can try to do this much better.... All of us one day were begginers. I think we (like human being, not students) need start be less "teachers" and more "partners". The great thing in communication is not the language, the write form of wirting, the main target of that is comunicate!!! Thanks for you answer Rachel, your English is very good :)

Oh, now I agree much more! :)

Less "teachers" and too much "helpers" and more "partners". Great point!

So, we can try to start. About what issue can we talk? The world Cup here in Brazil? What do you think about it? Or, how about another question?

Hi Alexander. No, I study here, on other sites and with a teacher too. But for me, Duolingo is the best site to practice English. The repetition and the focus in sentence' structures, make us to assimilate a lot of things. I like it! :) And thank you! I really apreciatted your compliment.

Hii there!! Well, i made dinner today, I my speaciality is yakissoba!! Do you like that? About WC, I'm worry with the possibility that we have some kind of problems during the championship. The Brazil's situation is not good. The po pulation is very angry and the governants are not prepared to resolve the situation. I think we'll have problems here... :/

Hi! I like that you are good cook, but no, I don't like yakisoba. kk And it's very good to me because I can't eat anything made with wheat flour. And, I love Chinese food, but I don't like Japanese food. Not because of the raw fish, but about their sauces and their rice.

I think that don't will happen anything serious at the Cup. Of course, some manifestations, but I think everything will be OK.

But, you are right, this World Cup can be a great opportunity to us. To beginning to pay more attention on what is really important and to stop to believe in the chat from the politicians. They have to understand, and us too, that they work for us, not us to them. That will be the best part in this Cup.

This WC can be the most amazing, ever!!! But it can't hide our serious problems ;) Now, I was watching Game of Thrones. Do you like? This series is amazing, with great scenes, big fights, a lot "games". I love it :D Now I'm watchig a review of Friends, seventh season. This is the best sitcom that I see :) Well, I love Japanese fod, specially sushi and sashimi. But Italian food is awesome too. Do you like gaucho's food? Barbecue? Now, is very cold here. For me, winter is the best season of the year, because we wear pretty clothes and the nights are fine to sleep :D

I have to replay here because in your last comment isn't possible anymore ( Who commands to make a chat here hoho).

I imagined too that was impossible hide our problems but I didn't think it will be that way, so opened, so clear. It's good. No, I don't watch Game of Thrones, and I feel like an ET because that. I love Friends too and I'm thankful because the way of my name is wrote became popular.

I love gaucho's food, yeah! And I cook well but I don't know to make an even reasonable barbecue. Do you know?

I already liked of the winter, but nowadays I'm a summer person. I love sunny, hot, days. I never complain about it, even when it's very hot.

Do you know I associate your name with Rachel Green :D I'm not like you, I ever complain about hot days. Maybe I do that because our summer is very, very, but very hot in Rio Grande do Sul. Our winter is cold too, but is aceptable. Almost all gaucho knows how to make a real barbecue. It is in our veins :D I was watching woody woodpecker and peanuts to improve my English. Is very nice to do that. Have a great monday dear :*

Each time that I will try to answer, the program here, close one more window to me. kkkk

Yes, it's in your blood a great barbecue, I know. :) But I'm envious of it. I saw your post about the cartoons videos, but to me, to watch without subtitles is to hard yet.

See you dear. Have a great week too! :)

Hello, I'm Elaine and I want to practice my English. If somebody has any interest , get in contact with me I have lots of articles and subjects to discuss. As the person above said, there´s no problem, we're here to share knowledge.

Let's practice.

https://www.duolingo.com/BrandaoEduardo

the most important thing we need at the beginning is a good vocabulary, without word we have to work with.Daily practice is very important , do not worry about making mistakes...in fact the more mistakes you make the more more will learn from them.Just learning to ride a bike, sometimes you fall off, so what do you do? you get back on and try again.

https://www.duolingo.com/RachelGaia

I agree with you completely. Vocabulary is the key. The language is made with them (no, really? kkk) and when we begin to learn the sentence' structures, to know a lot of words make this very easy.

The daily practice is a new discovery to me, and now I understand how much it is important. So, I do something to study English every day.

I've realy enjoyed your suggestion. If we try to make comments in English here, we will help each other. Besides, I also believe that we will receive more help from English speakers who are here. Don't you think? From now on, I will try to do this: put my comments here more in English. Three ingots for you to practice a lesson once again.

Hello, Gelsimar.I like to study English, but I have difficulties to understand what the people speak. Sometimes i do not want continue, but I read very well. Today, i am tired. Tomorrow will to be a other day and I can to change of idea, Do you have that difficulty?

4 anos atrás

https://www.duolingo.com/gelsimar.m

Hiii. Yeahhh, I have the same difficult to listen in English, but it is improving day by day. One the beste things I recomend for everyone, is watch sme cartoons, like woody woodpecker and peanuts. In cartoons, the dialogues are slow and the people speak clearly. Another possibility is watch Friends (sitcom), is a great oportunity to listen and pratice. Anyway, listen English is very complicated, specially because we are trained to think in Portuguese, so we try to translate a dialogue, instead just listen and understand. :)

I'm trying to mark meetings together some persons here by skype but the most difficult in our group it's being timeliness and compromise. When we mark a meeting to any time,usually members simply unmark it or cancel it .I am going to do a new trying with ICH,maybe it's possible to have a good result.
