What are your 5 favorite activities and why? :) (Practiquemos el Inglés)
Hi, my name is Pablo Caballero, share with me your 5 favorite activities. Here's my list. :)
5.- To Fix and Construct.
I know It sounds weird but I really love to fix things by my own, it gives me a feeling of autonomy and independence, for example, things such as my cloths, electronic devices, restore old furniture, fix my computer, improve my bicycle, construct new furniture from recycling old wood and all that kind of things. :)
In general I really love nature, but there is something special in the case of plants, since I was a child I have been amazed by the observation of them, learning about their adaptation strategies to their own environments, taking care of them and learning what kind of flowers, smells and fruits they have, actually I have a lot of them. :P
Photography is one of my favorite hobbies, maybe because I think I have a little of talent in this activity, I have won some small contests and fortunately some of my work have been presented in some of the most important galleries of my city. :D Also photography is a nice excuse to go out looking for a new adventure, inside the city or outside in a nature place. :)
2.- To Read.
One of my dreams is to have my own library in my own house, something that I am making a reality step by step, buying and enjoying a new book from time to time.
1.- To Learn.
I think to learn is one of my best skills, it gives me the ability to see the world in way that I've never imagined, and that's why I'm here. :)
In a respectful way any kind of corrections and observations are welcome. :)
Soy maestro de Latín de los Estados Unidos. Comencé a aprender español hace seis meses. Si tiene preguntas sobre inglés, pregúntame. Respondiendo a las preguntas me ayudará con mi español :).
Excelente profesor, muchas gracias, tengo bastantes dudas para compartir con usted, le agregaré a mis amigos para mantenernos en contacto. Saludos. :)
Gracias! Your English is very good with few mistakes. I needed a dictionary to read some of what you wrote, but I learned from it :).
I woul like to know about a lot of topics about USA. We can share information in our lenguages.
jajaja Thank you man. :D I'd really like to learn with other users of Duolingo and maybe make some new friends. Would you like to share your 5 favorite activities? There's no need to explain why and don't worry about the mistakes we are here for learning. :)
Hi Carlos, I'm Sharyst, I would like to practice my English with you. Please, help me to correct my mistakes. (my English isn't like yours). My five favorite activities (some I don't do often) are:
Write: I like writing abouth anything and nothing. I write only for my (I don't show my incoherent storys to anyone). I don't have a gift or something, in fact, I consider that I'm under other, but I still like to keep writing (so, I don't know why I like it XD). I always write a lot, my summaries that I do to study don't like summaries at all LOL (it's true)
Read: I like read too. Unfortunately I lose the habit because I awful to organize my time and I can't take free time to read for leisure. I always read novels and my first books were "Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban", "The manipulator", "Gone with Wind", "The Gotfather" and "Papillón". My father always tell me about his favorite books with enthuasiasm and happiness. I think that, unitentionaly, my father showed me to love the books and to see the value of each one of them. I would like a cute and big library in my house too....
Watch anime: I like watch anime when I -seldom- can. My favorties genres are Shonen (anime "for youngs boys") and Seinen (anime "for young adults and old adults"). I seldom watch Shojo (anime "for girls") because I don't like much it, Shojo usually has romance and that isn't a genre to my liking, it's very dramatic and cloying. Sometimes, I find a diferent Shojo serie that It could considerate a exception, as "Natsume's Book of Friends", I love so much that anime, it's very cute.....But, like my lost reading habit, I haven't watch anime as much as before.
4.Lern German: German is a lenguage very difficult, but I like it. I know I should learn english with the same enthusiasm (I like it, but nothing more). My true passion is German (I don't know why). I hope speak, write and read a little German soon :)
5 Make Dessert: I don't cook salt food and I don't like cook (I prefert to wash the dishes XD). But I love make dessert like cake, pai or any sweet. I don't know complicate recipes, but I'm happy when I prepare anything people -and me of course- can enjoy.
I would appreciate any correction, recommendation or observation to improve my English
jajajaja Nice to meet you Sharyst, thank you for sharing your 5 favorite activities, I really enjoyed reading your text and I learned some new words as "leisure", "seldom" and "cloying". Don't lose your reading habit!!! :P I like to write too, but as you, I think I'm not good in that activity, but who cares, we like to do it. :P
I suggest you to use an orthography auto-corrector, it helps you a lot and with the time you learn to write in a better way.
About the corrections, at first, my name is Pablo not Carlos. XD
"Write: I like writing about (WITHOUT "H" AT THE END) anything and nothing. I write only for MYSELF (I don't show my incoherent STORIES to anyone). I don't have a gift or something, in fact, I consider that I'm under otherS, but I still like to keep writing (so, I don't know why I like it XD). I always write a lot, BUT THE summaries that I do to study, I don't like THEM at all LOL (it's true)
Read: I like TO read too. Unfortunately I lose the habit because I HATE ("AWFUL" IS NOT A VERB IS AN ADJECTIVE) to organize my time and I can't take free time to read for leisure. I always read novels and my first books were "Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban", "The manipulator", "Gone with Wind", "The Gotfather" and "Papillón". My father always tell me about his favorite books with enthusiasm and happiness. I think that, unintentionally, my father showed me to love (WITHOUT "THE" SOUNDS BETTER) books and to see the value of each one of them. I would like a cute and big library in my house too....
Watch anime: I like TO watch anime when I -seldom- can. My favorties genres are Shonen (anime "for young (YOUNG IN SINGULAR) boys") and Seinen (anime "for young adults and old adults"). I seldom watch Shojo (anime "for girls") because I don't like IT MUCH, Shojo usually has romance and that isn't a genre to my liking, it's very dramatic and cloying. Sometimes, I find a diferent Shojo SERIES ("SERIES" CAN BE A SINGULAR OR A PLURAL DEPENDING ON THE CONTEXT) that It could BE CONSIDERED AN (OR "I COULD CONSIDER AN...") exception, as "Natsume's Book of Friends", I love so much that anime, it's very cute.....But, like my lost reading habit, I haven't WATCHED anime as much as before.
4.LeArn German: German is a LANGUAGE very difficult, but I like it. I know I should learn English (WITH "E" CAPITAL) with the same enthusiasm (I like it, but nothing more). My true passion is German (I don't know why). I hope speak, write and read a little German soon :)
5 Make Dessert: I don't cook salt food and I don't like TO cook (I prefer to wash the dishes XD). But I love TO make dessertS like cake, PIE or ANYTHING sweet (OR "ANY SWEET THING"). I don't know complicateD recipes, but I'm happy when I prepare SOMETHING THAT people -and me of course- can enjoy."
Congrats! Keep working man. :D
I'm sorry, it's my mistake. I don't know why I wrote "Carlos" jajaja
Thanks for your corrections, I appreciate it. I need to study more about English grammar.
Do you know where I can to get an orthography auto-corrector? I hate to make orthography mistakes, I'm ashamed when I write something wrong in any lenguage.
