shht there is a new boy ?here and u say him my age
and coz off my old age i forgot if u were here already or this is the first time
I was here for a short time, before. Not long enough to be memorable, though, it seems.
but contrary to for example myself you are a talent in maths. That's where I suck quite a bit. I still remember the discussion you had with Bilbo about a maths problem. I didn't understand anything of it.
I'm good at it, yes, but there's not so much talent there. Certainly not as much as is required to be multi-lingual.
German is my mother tongue. I'm fluent in Spanish, can get around pretty well in Portuguese (although I love mixing it with Spanish these days
), my English used to be better than it is right now and I learned French in school. At the moment I'm trying to brush up the latter, let's see how it will turn out.
Your English is great, don't see how it could have been much better?
I sort of feel guilty being an Englishman, people like you go out of their way to learn our language, and also others, putting in lots of effort. Whilst doing that, we just sit on our backsides not bothering, in safe knowledge that wherever we go, English will do.
