"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Do you call that Dutchlish or Engutch @sarah?
  • sarahsarah Posts: 16 ✭✭
    @Lynne I call it sometimes :smile: make me understandable as possible :D :D :D
    thats because I always translate in my head, not good at all. I have to start thinking in one language when I speak ;)
  • TeachTeach Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,937 mod
    It comes with practise, but you need to be committed to practising both languages. My poor French was forced out by German.

    Hi @GVIJAY56,

    Welcometo the forum.

    Myself I'm from France. Actually there are people from all around the world, but I think that there aremore Indians than French members. It seems like the French are not so willing to learn English. Bugger! ;)

    By the way, we don'twrite messages using only capital letters. It looks like you are shouting if you write eveything using capital letters only.

    Anayway, have a great time in the forum. ANd if you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

    The French in the Cote d'Azur are busy learning French @Zom! Sacre bleu!! To run away from English-speakers I have to escape to Cuneo just over the border in Italy where locals only seem to speak Italian or French.
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 3,072 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Your lapsus makes me think otherwise @mheredge. ^^

    I'm from Poland.It's beautifull country which has access to the sea and moutains. :)
  • PaulettePaulette Posts: 19,969 mod
    Hello @Conti92 yes Poland is a wonderful country of nature. I came there, a long time ago when I was much younger and I visited then also Auschwich because there died a lot of Belgian friends of my parents. They were taken from the Dossinkazerne Mechelen in Belgium to this concentration camp to never return. It was a very emotional visit, but I am glad I did it.
