    :mmm: exactement!

    Nous ne se parlons pas avant maintenant (like properly). Alors, ça va?

    Je devrais commencer à parler en espagnol ou je n'améliorai jamais!
    Oui, ça va bien. :sexface: Et toi?
    Bien...je n'apprends plus l'espagnol dans école.

    Goedemiddag, boumavilla

    Hoe goed is je Nederlands?

    Nederlands is voor vele een moeilijke taal om te leren; zelfs die slimme L'Evil Fish kon het niet aan!
    Mijn nederlands is oké.

    Ik denk dat nederlands een beetje gemakkelijk is. Ben je Nederlands?

    VIS!
    ALS IK JE IN MIJN HANDEN KRIJG, DAN ZOU HET JOUW VERJAAARDAG NOG LANG NIET WEZEN! muhahahahahahahahh
    Is that a Dutch saying? :mmm:

    (Original post by thatitootoo)
    'Je' means 'you' in Dutch
    When I said "je can" I was thinking about the Dutch "je kan"
    But "tu peux" is what I should have written to ye
    Ik begrijp dat. :mmm:

    I confuse them, but if I concentrate it'll be okay.

    Aaah, Chinese is SO difficult.
    That it is, especially character acquisition. It just makes it better when you get stuff right though

    The sucky thing is I haven't opened my textbooks since getting to Spain 5 weeks ago and I'd been slacking for weeks even before then. They're currently sat on my desk neglected and I don't want to open one for fear of realising just how detrimental the break has been!

    Edit: Just had to reopen this reply and correct a bunch of errors. That's how you know the Spanish life is taking effect; my English grammar is taking a beating

    Echt waar? Nederlands is een soort van 2e taal voor mij! (Ik ben niet Nederlands, ook heb ik geen Nederlandse familie) Maar ik heb wel een tijdje in Nederland "gewoond", dus de taal spreken gaat nog wel (meestal)

    Heb jij dan wel Nederlandse familie ofzo?

    :lol: The Dutch saying is "Dan ben je nog lang niet jarig!" but as always, Thatitootoo likes to mould & twist authentic idioms and make them his own! zowel in het Engels als in het Nederlands en Duits :rolleyes:

    I know, I'm going to take of of my Chinese textbooks along to a cafe shortly and finally face the music

    Y mientras creo que tengo un buen nivel de español, no diría que puedo hablar la lengua con fluidez. Llevo más que 11 años estudiando castellano pero aún tengo mala gramática y falto mucho vocabulario aunque puedo hablar con la gente más o menos sin problemas Por cierto, estaba hablando de mis libros de chino, no español! En Nottingham, no tenemos libros de textos para español después del segundo año.

    (I'm assuming from your reply that you'll be able to understand the above, let me know if you don't!)

    What are your language aims anyway? Are you learning for your own gratification or is there a higher purpose?

    No hablo español pero lo entendí pienso...

    I knew you were talking about Chinese books. How old are you then?

    Aims... I want to be like B2 (like can speak easily and convey ideas. Not always technically able, like philosophy I wouldn't be able to do but good enough to try) if that's B2 in French, Spanish and Italian...then learn basic Chinese Mandarin and German. I find them so interesting, and it feels amazing talking to someone in a different language.

    B2 is A-level standard. I've seen the table myself before. :yep:
    Je crois que je suis au niveau B2 en francais, puis B1 ou 2 pour l'espagnol, B1 pour le néerlandais!
    Quels niveaux pour toi?

    I totally agree, I love that I'm able to speak Spanish with people. It takes away such a huge barrier and also makes people much more accepting/friendly because they appreciate the effort and don't see me as a tourist. How would you say you are at the moment, got a long way to go or feeling pretty confident?

    I'm 21 and in my third year of university. Aiming to have C1 in Spanish, B1-2 in Chinese Mandarin and B2 (through a miracle) in French by the time I'm 25. Then during that time I guess I'd like to start bringing in some other languages in moderation, just to tourist level, so that if I'm travelling for work or in general I am able to get by with basic tasks. Did you get yours through education or family? Or are you self studying your way through some?

    Estás un poco equivocado con eso, estás pensando en Catalan. Castellano es la lengua nacional de España. Y sí, a mi Catalan es completamente extraño! No puedo leer textos en Catalan y es raro; o sea, pensaría que sería un dialecto porque estan en el mismo país pero no...

    It's amazing :moon: like, it's... Just like, when you speak to someone in their own language, it's such a token of respect, and it's quite warming :ahee:

    Spanish and Italian are abysmal in terms of a conversation because I don't know any words... Grammar wise they're decent though!

    French I'd say, I'm pretty confident with but I find when I speak I can't think of what I want to say, even though I can anywhere else which is really annoying but yeah, I'm confident with that, hoping for a B2 at the end of a year. I'd love a C1 eventually but... Yeah

    Well self study if I'm honest. French I do as an a level now, but the others will be self taught :yep:

    Voy a comenzar hablar en español porque es necesita que práctico

    If those are the right words

    Estoy totalmente de acuerdo. Me sorprende que sea más fácil leer textos en portugués que en catalán. :eek:
