Where are you from?


#1

Hallo everybody,

Sometimes I am a little bit sad that I can not notice where you are from.

I think it would be easier to explain some things like the question where to learn English or where to find some more information about studying abroad.

And the most exciting point for me is that it is very interesting to see where the other people live. Don’t get me wrong, please. But I think for a better understanding sometimes it could be better to know where you live.

For example:
I live in Bonn, Germany, and I think my life is much different from the life people in Russia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Mongolia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Switzerland, Brazil, Mozambique, Canada, Peru, Poland, Zimbabwe, Lithuania, Kongo, USA, Italy or somewhere else live. And sometimes I want to ask how you see your live in your country, but I cannot ask you if I do not know where you live.

Please, do not get me wrong. For me it is very interesting to hear where and how you live.

I wish all of you a nice Christmastime and enjoy this time with all its tiny lights and sweets.

Best regards

Hey Alshimaa Helmy,

I also feel the same as you feel.
I have been learning english for long time. But I am not so sure to my english ability.

I’m from Mexico. I’d like to go to your country (Alemania in Spanish).


#6

I’m with you, Teufelchen. I am also interested in knowing all the places people are from.

In addition to that, sometimes it is much easier for me to answer someone’s grammar or vocabulary question if I know his or her native language. If he speaks a language I know something about, I can sometimes provide him with just the right trick to help him solve his English problem.

You are so kind. I am from China.

hi all,

its True that we all need to know more about each others we need to comunicated to be freinds that will be good for our groob here and for me iam not looking for knowing english langudge only No iam also looking to educated about the english way of thinking and their culture aculture for all nations that speak english as amother tuonge langudge so to well educated about that u need to have freinds from all english speaking country and by the way how many are they?.
know let me tell u where icame frome, ok iam from SUDAN, Sudan is agreatest country on Africa greatest imean the big one its almost 1 milion mayele squaier more than 65% of this areia is green and more than 35% is a forest, the total of our population is aproxmatly 40 millions 90% of them were muslims and our main langudge is Arabic, we have been under the England clonical since 1898 tell 1956. the main source of income on my country was to be agricultueral crops such as coton,sesem, but now days and since 1999 oil will be one of the main component of our export commodiate and since 2005 petrol oil became 80% of our total exportations value. but still most of the populations on my country live under the poverty line 90% of them. for me ithink our first economic and social problem is on the encome destributions policy on my country ther rish get ritshers and the poore get poorest.

hello everyone,
It is a nice idea to get to know each other, not only to know in which country our friends in the forums live, but also to know the life and the traditions of every country and to practice the lovely English language.
I would like to tell you that I’m from Iraq, and I think the world heared about my country because of the US led invasion in 2003. But as a fact people think that we are underdeveloped country, we live in tents, we don’t have TV’s, Internet, Computers, mobiles and we don’t wear only the old tradition clothes.
But the truth is we are like you, we know how to use comuter and internet, most of the Iraqis in my age, 20’s speaks english or another language like me, I speak Arabic, which is my mother tangue and speak English and French, I work as a journalist in one of the world biggest news agenys.
but in the other hand we have poor people who still live in a bad way all of because the war that took place, the occupation and the terror.

thank you for being patient to read my words and I’m ready to answer all your questions If you have one’s.

bye

Good evening every learner. It is something good to know each other . this lead to communicate with each other without shy . About me , I am from Saudi Arabia . I am about 25 years old . My native language is Arabic. I learnt English from books, net, classromm, CNN, BBC and T.V. I want from each reader to contact with me to learn or to ask any Question . I want to thank a lot our friend “Teufelchen” from germany the original power of the world . He clrearified his idea . I mean , He requested from the learners to cmmunicate with each other regularly. O learners , we must to know each other , this will lead to near our ideas, relationship and friendship . To make our countries safe by this froum , just we have to contact with each other . Imagine , What will happen if we become brothers in soul ? Why not visit each other ? Believe me , we will biuld a strong , a clear and a huge nations without war , poor , thirsty or terrorisom. Why not . Allah Said in Qurran " WE made you different nations, people , and tribes to know each other" " وجعلنا كم شعوبا وقبائل لتتعارفوا" this Verse (Iaah ) in our Holy Quraan . So , let us know each other more .

    My name is Khalipha SOGODOGO. I am Malian. I live in Bamako, the capital city. Mali is in West Africa. It shares borders with Senegal, Guinea Conakry, Mauritania, Algeria, Niger, Burkina Faso and Cote d’Ivoire. So, you can easily imagine how big is my country.
    I’m a teacher teaching English in secondary school. I like English a lot. I was dreaming of a PhD in English to teach English at the young university of my country, but I was limited by the means.
    So, your site appears as a bonanza to me. It gets me in touch with you, kind of you, and many others. The teaching materials are so valuable!
    I am fond of communicating with others,culture cross.
    I aready to correspond with anyone who is willing.
    Pleasure to talk to you
