New single "Finally Found You" available on iTunes.
You are right Trudie, forgot
Niet goed; Ik was vergeten de handboeien, we moeten handboeien hebben
Kan niet zonder hen, hoe kon ik denken.
Og núna verður þú að svara á Íslensku! (e.t. And now you have to answer in Icelanic)
Eller om du svarar på Svenska! (e.t. Or if you answer in Swedish)
Do you know Spanish, we need Spanish, I think that would be the best language here.
I did start a couple of years ago but then things got so busy for awhile and something had to give.
Now that I don't work as much I would like to take up Spanish again, it is a beautiful language.
This place (E-site) is rather amazing when you think about it. So many languages, cultures and diversity of people, you could say a large part of the world is represented here.
I just woke up, going to take some coffee and get the blood stream going.
So you speak Spanish! I am so jealous of that, love to be able to speak it fluent, I understand some but not at all sufficient to communicate in a good maner.
Coffey for today is STRONG, HOT AND BOLD
I look at some pictures of our mr E here and that gets the heart pumping where after I insert a large amount of strong coffee to get my blood running and booting up my brain. Now I have drank a wee bit too much so I'm a bit hyper active at the moment and getting nowhere. Hyperactive and getting things done in a constructive manner does not always go hand in hand, you know.
Jag kan göra det på svenska, men inte alla förstår.
(I can do it in Swedish, but not everybody understands that).Íslenski allir skilja? (does everybody understand Icelandic?)
O puedo hablar Española, ma no creo que todo il mundo comprende.
I learnt Spanish for 2 years when I was in secondary school (long time ago). It hasn't gone away though, having a certain linguistic talent. Knowing Latin, Italian and French helps me to understand Spanish, especially written, but also the Spanish songtexts (after I listen a few times). I agree with Jennifer, below, that Spanish is not hard to learn, similar to English. (I'm not showing off, I hope ;-))) )
"Jag kan göra det på svenska" Nice!
You are good in both=)
One of my dearest and best friends here in Sweden is from the Holland. We have known eachother for over 25 years (wow" we are getting old)
I have equal good contact with her parents and siblings. Great people in so many ways, talented and smart I might add.
Well Latin is the door to Italian, French as well as Spanish, so I've heard.
I envy you your linguistic skills, marvelous.
I have been flirting with Spanish like I said before. I was co working with a company in Spain helping Swedish companies and private people that had moved there, get connected to the net. This was quite a while back and before Spain had structured their IT technique to what it is today which is very good.
No your not showing off. I like reading about fans here when it comes to there skills, I don't get the thing where people find it to be showing off. For me, I see it as an opportunity to learn somethings I did not know before. We have a knowledge base here and I just love that.
I'm learning new things every day I am here.
I don't believe people should keep quiet about their skills on the contrary they should show it so others might have some use for it and maybe give back some of theirs.
Co work and mingle the brains..I'm not talking about the space in the brain where Enrique resides in, I mean somewhere else, be it right or the left half you work with.
I am totally envious of anyone who can speak more than one language well. I speak a little Italian which I did at school but have been re-learing because my best friend is Italian and if go to lunch an nona's you just can't keep up.
Also a little German, my dad was teaching me but that was only bits and pieces, so I love seeing all the different languages and cultures all hanging out and having a good time together. It is so awesome!
My mum used to speak a French, German, Italian and Latin because she lived in London and Europe for about 7 years but that was a LONG time ago.
"I speak a little Italian"
Italian, German, that's quite good I would say..
We had German in school but I must have slept through that.
Does not work if I haven't had a couple of drinks, enough so I don't recognize that no one but me understands what I am babbling about, no strike that; even I don't know what I mean.
Yeah Andrea, you're so right. But when it comes to 'showing off' it seems to be a Dutch mentality somehow, to be shy (or feign that you are shy) about what your skills are. Like everybody else Dutch people are proud of what they can. But we always seem to have to play down on that.
In fact I am proud of speaking many languages, although it is not something I earned, but it is a gift. I love it, because it gives many opportunities to speak with people everywhere. Apart from what I already mentioned, I also speak German, and because I participate in a students' exchange programme, I have a few contacts in Denmark. Danish sounds like a far away combination of German, English and Dutch. It is a challenge to listen carefully and suddenly come up with a phrase in Danish.;-)) It helps to make contact with those Danish kids, they love it when I manage to say something, or laugh when it is not really right.
It is good to make contact around the world. Perhaps that will make it safer, at least nicer.
