Answeres(Language)

Postby behnam » Mon Aug 11, 2014 4:41 pm

Hi friends,

How are you doing on these scorching hot days? Today, the temperature reached of 42 centigrade in Tehran! Cold dry winters without sufficient rain and snow; hot summers! The globe's climate has changed. Sadness and is going to cover happiness! Human is nothing without water! I hope God will have mercy on us, although we human beings don't have mercy on each other!

Here are the answers of questions about the usages of 'language' and some of the words it collocates with!


1) I didn't speak much Japanese, and I was worried that the language barrier might be a problem.
2) The official language of Singapore is English.
3) How many languages do you speak?
4) I wish I was able to acquire a language in the effortless way that children do.
5) His books have been translated into over 50 different languages.
6) The film has been edited for bad or offensive language. It no longer contains any swearing.
7) She didn't say anything, but I knew by her body language that she was angry about something.
8) French, German and Spanish are the most popular foreign languages taught in British schools.
9) Make sure your explanation doesn't contain too much technical language. The secret of a good talk is to express your ideas in plain language.
10) German is her first language, but she speaks English with an impeccable accent. You'd think that it was her first language..
11) Latin is a dead language.
12) These sentences will help to develop your language skills.
13) At the meeting the only common language was English.
14) I'm fluent in English, Farsi, and Azerbaijani, and I have a working knowledge of Arabic.
15) He has a flair for languages. I think he can speak about ten.
16) After a year in Spain, I now have a good command of the language.
17) She's proficient in several languages, including Arabic.
18) Listening is extremely important in language learning.
19) Although I lived for many years in Sweden, I never quite mastered the language.
20) The proposal should be written in direct language.

I've added two useful sentences. Thank you for following the thread and posts. Good luck with practising.

Twenty-seven people have already visited this thread, but none of them have put comment on it! What's wrong? I guess the lack of topic is the main reason for the lack of interest. Well, let me suggest a topic.

What is your favourite season? Why is it your favourite season? Why do people have different favourite season? Where does that difference come from?

I am looking forward to reading your posts soon.

Postby Elham » Sat Aug 23, 2014 7:35 pm

Hi,

I'm here to write! I don't know what I'm going to write but I've missed writing aloooooooooot! This has always been one of my interests; I've always loved writing...ohhhh what made me give up on it? what made me get emotionless about it? How could I not write? Elhammmmmm...have you forgotten how much you loved writing and how much it satisfied you? Have you forgotten how much you enjoyed it?

Why do we give up on our dreams? ......

I'm going to start writing here again... Although my English is not as good as before...But I'll try to recall it and practice both English and writing here again...

Yohoooooooooo,
Eli
