There is no hope. Just loneliness
How many languages do you know?
I know Turkish(obviously), English, little bit of Japanese(I took 2 Japanese classes from school + anime/manga/light novel knowledge). I also took German classes during highschool but I forgot everything.
What’s so funny about rape jokes?
He is not making a rape joke actually, he is just making the classic analogy about academic hardships by likening them to a forced sexual interaction, but I understand your sensitivity considering your past. Maybe we should be less unreserved, especially regarding such subjects @Krios
I don’t know what’s the deal here but the exam system that @Krios describes is almost exactly the same with mine and I can relate with how he feels. I was happy that I found a comrade in arms and as a result I laughed and told him that I can relate to what he said. I don’t know why I offended you but rape is a commonly used metaphor when you describe heavy work load so I believe it’s only natural that he used it and I found it funny. In the end, this topic is a place for practicing our english and that’s why we try to use idioms, metaphors etc. to make our english more fluent. Anyways, sorry for any inconvenience on my behalf.
Hi there, I just discovered this topic, so, this is my enterence. Yeah. Bye then.
You forgot to drop the mic dude.
I don’t like mics, it kills your voice quality.
I like mics but dont use them for say something.I use them for something else
I’d like to have a chat with everyone that is here, but I don’t really have a topic in my mind to discuss. Would you consider me as a friend here, and let me chat with all of you time to time?
The topic is cool but isn’t sustainable(what a fancy word) because most of the English speakers in Turkey are not very good at explaining themselves so do i. For ex on the upper side of this topic there is a argue about the joke that i made but i couldn’t answer because i couldn’t translate the words in my mind. My sentences might be long but they are very basic and full of with gramer mistake. I think if we push ourselves harder it ll be better for our explanation skills.(i don’t even sure that there is determination like that explanation skills?)
I think gramer mistakes are not so important. So many person in USA or England not using gramer perfectly . We need to focus speak clearly and fluently.
I agree. I am frequent on many english-only platforms such as reddit and most native speakers can’t even differentiate your from you’re
I want to help people improve their english skills, but I can’t find a new subject to talk everytime this thread went silent. Other people have to take initiative, unfortunately.
I’d love to see our boldness’ to have a role in our sentences.
In my defence, using simple/basic sentences while chatting shouldn’t be seen as a bad habit. Of course, using rarely-used words could support your sentences to a higher level, but it doesn’t mean you have to use them in particular.
And if you are looking for an improve in your explanation skill, you can talk to someone who is good at English or talk to yourself. But if you’re insisting on having improved sentences by meaning of higher vocabulary level, then you can/should read essays that contains academic level of English.
You are absolutely right. Its much necessary(insert doge here) to speak with other for improving language its bad that we do not have enough courage express ourselves. Maybe we need more confidence.
I do but its not easy, i understand about 50% of it. Probably i have to try constantly.
But that way its first time that it see you welcome to muhit, you should be new comer or you changed your profile picture i did not knew most of the people’s name i recognize they frome their picture (:
Well, you can say that I am a rookie, I attended here in January. But yeah, I changed my profile picture.
By the way, it’s totally natural to have a hard time while reading an essay that contains academic level of English, but as you mentioned, you should read frequently to get used to the level.
