Hello Dixie. Although I have never read the book with title "The lake of dead languages" as you mentioned, it really makes me so curious. Sound good title, could you tell me a short summary about its content, please?
Thanks so much. :)

Recommended books

Oh dear!

My list of books to recommend is endless like The Ednless Story by Michael Ende :D , but as my favourites are fantasy books, here are some of my gratest loves:

1. The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis
2. The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
3. The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien
4. Inkheart by the german author Cornelia Funke, an enchanting triology for all those who love books, the next is Inkspell and the third one is yet to be published
5. Thoe's journey by Catherine Clement, don't know, if the title is written correctly, because I've read it only in German and Polish. It's a bokk about all the main religion's of the world

Okay, that's all for today :wink:

His books are boring. They're well-written, but they're boring. You can try Cujo from the list. However, don't expect to be impressed by his work. It won't happen until the end of any of his books.

Hi, laetetia.
I'm very happy I've got a reply from you. As soon as I recived your reply, I searched What conutry is Costa Rica. It's very different from Japan.
I've also read some misteries by Agatha Cristie in Japanese but not in other languages.
In other hand, I'm interested in Spanish and not regulatory I'm studying Spanish by watching on TV and listening music.
If you know, I want to read some nursery books in Spanish.

Well, sorry for answer until now. I had big problems with my computer.
But maybe you can try to read some little tales for kids. There you can learn vocabulary and at the same time you don't be very confuse. Or that I think so.
For me Japan is a gratefuly country, I am really in love of your country, by your history and traditions, every is wonderful there!

Hi, laetia.
I've afraid my reply had been hard to understand or
there had been some inapropriate things in my reply.

By the way I'm studying Espanol somtimes, only two words I've learned are vamos and ora... and most difficult in studying Espanol is the completely change in one word, for example "yo soy..." and "tu eles..."

Sorry for I wrote long mail unconcered with this forum.
I'm searching some book written espanol in the nearest book store.

I'm going to home. Buenos noches

Can I fix some mistakes?
You most to write: "hora" not "ora", "tu eres" not "tu eles" and finally "Buenas noches" not "buenos noches"
However, it is ok. I know for the foreign people the Spanish (Español) are very difficult, because we have a lot of words, verbs, adjectives whit the same meaning, and different pronunciation or things like that...
But if you like I can help you, and you can help to me whit my Japanese :)

Hi, laetetia.
Thank you for correcting my spelling.
I didn't check the spell and I remembered "h" was not pronunced in Espanol when you corrected.

In this summer I'm going to visit to Brazil and the language in Brazil is Portoghese. My friend, who teach Espanol in university in Japan, tell me Espanol and Portoghese are very similar and if they can talk Espanol, they can communicate easily.
Is it true?

By the way, I want to know that Japanese commic or anime are popoular in your country like Europe or America. If you like it, I could give you some information of them.
