Hi,

I'm a bit of a newbie and was wondering if there was anything on here similar to the General Discussion forum, but dedicated to discussions in other languages? Thought that kind of thing would be good practice

Thanks!

Unfortunately no.

Try the language society threads - you can talk about pretty much any topic in the language... Only downside is that they are really that popular.

I'm going to create a thread about this possibility in GD.

On second thoughts.... I think you could use the International Lounge that way. Or any of these foreign language forums.

As stated by KayleeLand in post 2, you could technically speak in a foreign language in this sub-forum, should you create a thread for it (refer to the French and German Learners' Societies for example), but I would imagine that could cause problems for moderation should the languages not be spoken by any of the Moderation Team...

We always speak Italian in the Italian society unless we can't be bothered or there's someone who's just started learning or something! Try joining a society

Thanks everyone

I still think an entire forum for this would be awesome, but I'll definitely look into joining some societies; that sounds good too.

The Int'l Lounge seems a bit focused on students studying abroad. :/ Would creating a thread in GD create a possibility that something like this might actually be put into place? Maybe it's worth a try...

The thing is there are limited places where you can post in a foreign language without having to translate. You can't post in GD without providing a translation.

Oh, right...
Can anyone let me know in which places a translation is required? Looks like it might be useful to know...
Thanks...

It's easier to say where it is allowed:

1) the international lounge

2) the foreign languages forum in study help

3) the foreign languages forum in uni courses bit

You should be able to find it in the rules section area - but I think those are the only places. If you break the rule you generally get a 2 or 3 points warning. Well known words, such as bonjour, hola, gracias etc... are generally accepted everywhere - unless you get an arsey mod looking at it!
