Is English your first language?

Post by black zero » 2009-04-29 04:21

Just want to know.. I'm asking this since apparently, there are many people that post in their language, or in a... (sorry) terrible English. Not in this forum, but on the other forum I frequent in.

Mine isn't. It's Indonesian. I know my English isn't that good, but at least... it's enough to deliver what I want to say. >_>

Hi!

I am Italian but I also speak English and Romanian.

Well on the IT world, English is absolutely my first language.

See you.

Er.. No..

Born in Denmark by danish parents, raised in Bangkok until 5 years old, finished school in Denmark, worked for several international companies the past 20 years and have traveled in 43 countries till now. Lived and worked 3 years in Singapore till 2003 and now running a temp-staff (hospital staff) agency with my wife in Denmark.. I've retired from the IT rat race ;-)

So, first languages were Thai (I had a Thai nanny), English (English friends) and Danish (parents). English, German and French languages are mandatory in danish schools. Some Swedish and Norwegian as they are neighboring countries and we used to 0wn them way back in time.. Finally a strain of Singlish (Singapore English), which by the way make people look at you as if you just dropped off the moon ;-)

But.. My native tongue is Danish ;-)

Do aussies generally have counter lunches every day or only when entertaining visitors?

Oh, by the way... When in Australia do NOT call a Cisco Gateway a "rooter" (brittish english pronounciation), use the american spoken "router".. It took a while for me to understand why everyone was laughing.. :oops:

The only time we don't have counter lunches is when we have liquid lunches. Same venue (the pub), just no food involved. :mrgreen:

PS There is much more to Australia than the town with the coat hanger and sea shells (Sydney)...

Hello all.

I am Chinese and English is not my first language. In fact I know English language very well because I am an IT student and there is must have the knowledge of English. Well today in every field English is necessary language. In every interview you have to do communication in only English.
So I can say English is not my first language but English is that first language which is initial in every field.

Nee, ik vind nederlands makkelijker. Maar dat begrijpen niet zoveel mensen hier.

Ein bisschen deutsch sprechen wir auch.

And also a little bit of english.

Good goan is dan weer typisch Twents.
