Random Stuff That I like/HoardAsk me anything
I can say “I hate pants” in Slovenian so I mean…
I can ask ‘where is the library?’ in Spanish.
Iay eakspay igpay atinlay. oesday atthay ountcay?
I learnt french at secondary school but didn’t retain much.
I know ‘Excuse me’ and ‘thank you’ in polish…I also remember vaguely…
…..Is it just my imagination, or do the words for ‘Pole-dancing’ and ‘Chicken’ sound very similar in polish?
I was drunk in Warsaw a couple of years ago and remember shouting ‘Pole-dancing Chicken! Pole-dancing Chicken!’ in polish
So everytime I type something wrong or use the wrong word or the wrong tempus or grammar etc. I always get paranoid that someone who has english as their native language, will read what I wrote and spot all the mistakes I made and think, “Is she stupid or something?” or “Daamn, her english is horrible, I am never going to speak to her”.
Are you kidding? Your English is much better than mine! (is English)
Sorry to generalize, but I’ve noticed over the years that a lot of Europeans are especially good with English puns an phonetic jokes.
I do always wonder (and ask) if it frustrates non-english, english-speakers that they go to all the trouble of learning my language, when I don’t know a single word in theirs.
