    Shout out to the best troll I've seen in the past 12 months;

    "You have the face to make onions cry. In fact I think I will send your photo to paedophile watch websites. Just so they can on the lookout for filth like yourself."
    I get loads of troll hate mail on here xD Good banter

    I think you already know this, but learning to write Mandarin is a pain, and so is Arabic I imagine, avoid if possible

    If we both end up in the same place I can teach you how to speak Mandarin :lol:

    When I'm trying to learn phrases in other languages, I hear the person say what I'm meant to say, I say what they said and my ears tell me I made the same sounds as they did, then they tell me my pronunciation is wrong :indiff:

    Mandarin is good fun the characters. But I only know like 20 characters then I stopped because I didn't see the point until I get to practise speaking with people too.

    Arabic... It's all worth!

    Hahaha, I actually know when I sound like them or not, but if I know I can't make the sounds perfectly I just go mute lol

    Sometimes you have to go ott and enthusiastic to sound good

    From my experience, Cantonese is probably the hardest to pronounce, followed by Russian :s

    not sure how to write it but it's something like 'ngo mm zhi a'?

    Hmmmm... PM me the names of your Interviewers :lol: I felt they were too easy as well.

    Even if you got an offer?!

    That's annoying, well I'm not a hobbit lotr fan so you can say
    Will do in a mo - hmm maybe not if I got an offer, I'd deffo firm Cambridge then Manchester probably

    Ah okay, here it is!
    asdasd
    The thing I didn't like was it basically revolved around the Lonely Mountain the entire film, not much else happens apart from 'The Battle of Five Armies' and that probably lasted for quite a while. But! It was pretty cool in the end so I dunno - a perfect wrap up to the series? Yeah I don't see why not!

    "Ngo" means "I"
    "mm sik gong" means "don't know how to speak"
    "gwong dong wa" means Cantonese (i.e. it's literally "Guangdong language", which refers to the province in China where it's most prevalent)
