Have you ever been to an English speaking Country?10.05.2015 um 13:04
I've been to Dublin. Strange enough, I don't remember much about it.

Grymnir schrieb:ve heard that its quite the same nin France, but havent experienced it by myself.At least it is the same with the French and the English; if you speak such good English that the French take you for English, you will receive bad service and rude behaviour. I have experienced that several times. If I tell them I'm Swedish however, they change their behaviour completely, although some men will instead become very flirty and unpleasant in another way... Prejudices destroy very much!
@BassmonsterHave you been successful, yet? Is it even still a thing, considering the recent political climate?
I'd like to emigrate to the U.S.
@BassmonsterDid your plans work out? Personally, I would have recommended the Atlantic coast(line).
Would like to see some parts of the Irish Coast next year. Already planing that trip!
@BassmonsterI've been here and there over the years ...
What about you? Tell me about your dreams and your dreams that already came true!
@ThawraRight? Somehow pretty much all the variations of BE sound more ... smooth, natural than what the US or Australia changed it into over the centuries ...
I love British English. To me, that's how English was meant to be pronounced. And I've found the British to be quite helpful and nice - generally speaking.
@BassmonsterDear Lord ... that is not exactly the best way to start folks with a foreign language.
That reminds me of my last English teacher. That women is crazy!
Her dialect was so german. One day she wrote down that sentence:"He very famous."
My English teacher before that women had an American housband!
@sharenaCanada is totally still on my list! As far as I know, it was relatively easy to cross the US/Canada border with a driver's license or a passport - we played with that though in 2015 (daytrip to canadian friends) and should have done it while we had the chance.
I've been to London in 1999 and in Canada 1996. My grand-uncle immigrated there some decades ago. A very beautiful country! :lv:
@MerwinnaTo say that I'm just a touch jealpus would be the understatement of the century. For a split-second it seemed like I could work in one of the smaller libraries of Dublin's Trinity College, something that would have been a dream come true.
Except for the usual holiday trips and language schools in Britain, I have lived in London for one year. I studied at one of the London colleges and also worked extra in its library. That was very interesting, and during that time I learnt to speak English fluently.

I read a notice on the library's own notice board, that they were searching for someone for the Scandinavian section. The demands were that you should have worked in a library before, and that you should have a Scandinavian language as mother tongue. I had both! I went to the boss and got the job immediately! :-)
It didn't work out, ultimately - but somehow it seems that living/studying in the UK (or Ireland in my case) and working in a library seems like the perfect fit. <3
@MerwinnaI will grugingly take into account that you are either a librarian or library assistant (like me) annd will try to be less jeaslous ;)
