I need to translate the following title into Hebrew: "In the Grip of the European Spectre"
Greetings to everyone,
I'm writing a course paper on political correctness in a Moscow-based university, and i desperately need several native speakes of English to fill in a short questionnaire
to get relevant numbers. Could someone spare a minute and do this, please?
Your help will be invaluable, thanks !!!
We're two students from Moscow, English majors, in the middle of linguistic research at our university. We need several native speakers of English to fill in either of two short tests (or both of em :-). Your help would be invaluable. We can't do it ourselves, 'cause only native speakers possess the needed sense of the 'mother' language.test 1test 2
Please, could you assess the propriety of the sentences given in the tests?
P.S. Please feel encouraged to turn to us if you need any help with Russian in return :-)
Hola muchachos y muchachas... it's been pretty quiet around here, what's up?
Well I don't know about everyone else, but I'm really needing this community right about now... recently I started working, and I've realized that at least half the people in the store at any given time, including employees, speak mostly Spanish. already I've had several customers come up to me to ask for things in Spanish, and all the backroom employees speak Spanish, so getting something pulled is an adventure. I want to be able to speak to these people but I'm just not confident enough in my Spanish-speaking skills.
anyone want to help? any corrections are, of course, welcome. probably gonna need a lot of help with vocab too. ( Spanish conversationCollapse )
ahh that's probably pretty bad. I completely mix up Spanish, English, and Japanese in my head. I keep thinking the verb should be at the end or something. XD
This entry will likely be the most helpful for those with at least a basic understanding of Spanish, but will certainly be of use to beginners alike. For the longest time, I could only communicate through Spanish with extremely poor grammar. Here I'm going to detail some of the common uses of grammar so you may speak more accurately.
This is a pretty short post, but there's a lot to memorize here so I've left it as such. I'll try and get some more up soon.
To ensure I didn't make an error in this and to also help me better explain things (which I am horrible at XD), I've used an old book of mine as a guide that I once used to learn Spanish.
If you have any questions, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them. :)( Spanish Grammar Part I - To Speak: HablarCollapse )
今晩は皆さん！We've got a few members so far... I really hate to ask, but if you know people who would be interested in this community, please help spread the word along. Post about it in your journal. I don't know. This community will only really be successful if we have kind of a large pool of active members. but for now, I'll try to start things off.
Write a short little introduction in the languages you're studying/want to practice. Include an English translation if you want. Feel free to correct me. Really. It's why I'm here.( my introsCollapse )
wow, that was a lot more difficult than I thought. My brain starts going haywire once I mix three languages together. Does anyone know the Mac shortcuts for accented letters? x_x And for the Japanese students, how do you compound sentences? (I'm looking for just a simple "and" here. saying "desu" over and over is a pain to say and probably boring to read).
EDIT: Okay, here are the shortcuts for acute accented letters in Windows and Mac:Windows
Acute accent ´ Ctrl + ´
letter á é í ó ú Á É Í Ó Ú (hold down SHIFT for the capital)Mac
Acutet ´ option + e
letter á é í ó ú Á É Í Ó Ú
so for Mac for instance.. you press "option+e" and the accent will be highlighted in yellow... all you have to do is press the letter you want and tada. :X hey I didn't know this, I'm amazed.
The community is finally up! I am so tired. so exhausted.
If anyone has any contributions to the info page - suggested rules, "how do I"s for the FAQ section, etc. let me know.
Also, I'm currently looking for moderators! I need people to help me moderate the community entries for pretty much every language introduced. You will need:
1. To have enough time to be involved with the community and read posts.
2. To be proficient in the language you are applying for. You should at least have a skill level somewhere between "intermediate" and "advanced". You need to be able to read posts in your given language to make sure no rules are being broken, etc.
3. To be patient and cooperative. You shouldn't have a problem dealing with people or answering questions.
I think that's about it. Let me know if you're interested.
Well.. I hope people enjoy the community. :X Here are some ideas for topic starters:
- Practice conversation (ask and talk about school, family, etc.)
- Questions (grammar, phrases, spelling, book/movie/website recommendations, testing, etc.)
- Translations ("How do I say..?" "Is this correct"?)
etc.. I'm sure there's other stuff. again, if you have any questions, let me know. be sure to read through the community info, too! there's a lot of stuff in there about how to enable language support, how to view entries using multiple tags, rules, etc. Also let me know if you need a certain tag I haven't created yet.
