Yes,that's all. Thank you the_GoDdEsS and Rocky-girl.
Can you help me for learning English?

04-16-2006, 06:32 PM
Sure, what's your native language?

04-16-2006, 06:48 PM
So, Two-Posts Jones, why the Offspring message boards? Ain't there some ESL board you can go invade?

04-16-2006, 07:11 PM
Chinese is my native language.
Welcome to China,everybody.
Now,China is a beautiful country.

The best way for you to learn is to just read other people's English. That worked for Sim and Sanni, right?

Dave, yes.

So, Two-Posts Jones, why the Offspring message boards? Ain't there some ESL board you can go invade?

I have to argue against you because this is the best place this person could have chosen. I'm not sure in how far this is profitable to us. But let's put that aside. From a purely objective point of view, the best way to learn a language is in natural environment.

And especially with ESL, it's not relly learning, it's acquisition. This is natural environment. We offer simple conversation, a variety of topics, rather easy texts to read. For many of us, for whom English is a second or a foreign language, this was a marvellous opportunity to read in English. Reading is not just a matter of reading comprehension, you subconsciously acquire language forms, word order and a feeling for the language.

Hell, six years ago my English was raw, simple. My word order was totally insecure and I probably just used present simple, present progressive, past simple and future with will. In all those years through reading this forum, reading English books and talking to natives online, I've acquired a feeling for so many new adverbs that helped make my written performance sound better, adjectives, or a certainty for putting words in the right order. And I'm still learning. It's great, better than any ESL or EFL site you go to.

^ this is how I study.
It isn't interesting to sit with your copybook and try to learn all that you've writtren in 2 hours. And if you ever learn it you won't be able to say in English all that you want to say. It's hard to express all that you feel in foreign language. You must have a good vocabluary if you want to talk. Here I find many of them:)

Picking up a language naturally is 100% better and more successful than studying it over books. I never learnt any language from just books.

04-17-2006, 04:31 AM
Also, you said Chinese is you native language. If you call English your second language, does it mean you moved to an English speaking country now? There's a major difference between ESL and EFL.

TO teach English online? interesting but I think hard.

04-17-2006, 04:44 AM
To teach English online? Oh, there are virtual classrooms.

04-17-2006, 04:49 AM
Really? I prefer usial methods of teaching.

04-17-2006, 04:50 AM
Yep, it's offered as a product via some international language schools.

04-17-2006, 04:54 AM
Interesting can I study Math in this way????
Can you write me something in Slovac I'll try to read and translate?

04-17-2006, 05:08 AM
Do you really think that all emotions can be shown here?

04-17-2006, 05:09 AM
No, but I think this provides immediate connection. A book won't answer you. Over here, you get many more reactions to what people write and to what you write.

04-17-2006, 06:13 AM
Besides the advantages afore-mentioned, this forum has one asset: it all sounds more or less like a game. Our young (or not) Chinese friend will find the experience of learning pleasurable, while with books the task is long, dry & arduous.

In here he'll learn thru emotions, (humour, anger etc), so his affectivity will be touched. In books it seldom is, unless you grow a real fondness for the characters in the set-dialogues.

Thank's a lot,everybody,this's my mind.

So, tell us a little about yourself.

Glad to see we're of a mind. No worries, by the look of it you'll find learning English the easiest thing, far easier than you'd think. You'll learn without realizing you do.

May I add that the difficulty of learning Chinese seems to me (I'm French) insurmountable?

French!! Aha,I feel French very romantic. There are Alain Delon and so on,I very like them.

French and English spelt by letters,but Chinese spelt by 'Draw',so Chinese is difficulty to West people.

04-17-2006, 08:36 AM
Yes I'm unfortunately french too and this board is a good way to practise english and thus you can meet people of everywhere in the world I speak english and spanish but I'd like to speak chinese although it seems really hard to learn :)
