Just want to say Hi!
« on: 11/07/2008 23:47:00 »
Hi there!

I just found this forum a few days ago when I was searching an englishspeaking forum that would fit my interests. I had to find out, that this is not that easy (didnīt find a good forum for general book-discussions..they are allways related to special themes or authors).
But then I got to this forum and Iīm amazed. The last few days I spend a bit with just reading through the sections, and what I found was quite intresting! So I decided to register today.
I hope you will be patient with me and my english-writing-skills. I was searching for an english forum, because i noticed, that understanding spoken and written english is just not the same, than to have to use it yourself. Itīs so much harder to impress yourself, find the right words and (especially :-\ ) tenses. But I would really like to get much more into this. And I thought being active in a forum would be a fun way. (so please feel free to correct me, if Iīm doing the same mistake over and over again ;-) ).

Ny the way, Iīm from Germany, 26 years old, student of a biological subject and therefor my major intrests are in biological, natural sciences.

Welcome atrox,

NKSforum is certainly a good practice for training in written english language.
Feel free to ask anything about vitamin D, "cod" and any other atrocity  :D
Enjoy your biological studies!
Take care

The English on this Forum is way below standard. It is full of common people with no linguistic skills. Doctor Beaver is the only person/animal that I would trust. He has a good turn of phrase.
Beware of inferior English.

Welcome to the lunatic asylum. I think you will fit in well. Straight jackets are against the far wall.

Of course I do, Paul. The only reason why I spent my Time there.. and I bet you know what I ment with "work in a hostel"  ;) ;D
But it was somehow a pretty strange feeling to see some place in the city where I used to be everey day... felt a bit like a soft trace of homesickness..

But to be honest: Me and my friends and colleagues had some very creepy moments there, too.
...there was this moment, when I was standing at a busstopp and sudenly a girl standing next to me began to sream an reached for her eye. Some idiots had thrown an egg out of a driving car and it hit her eye.
Or the moment my colleague came home one evening with a new scar at his forehead...some idiots gave him a headbut out of the blue, only because he was there. They didnīt even speak to him.
Or some really stupid people... realising I came from Germany, they got aggressive, called me Hitler and such things... fortunately there were only a very small number of them...but the first time I got such an reaction, I was really really shocked!
I think, if I had know before, how dangerous Liverpool can be, I would have chosen another city to stay (ok...now Iīm completely confused about the right tenses..)

@Make it Lady: Ok, I will have a look at this thread ;)

atrox - the word is "drunken" not "trunken". "Trunken" is what German elephants have  :D
