Re: How well do you know English?

bascially, very bad indeed

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Somewhere between fluent and competent, perhaps.

When sober, my English is on the level of Samanosuke, when drunk, I am more eloquent than Masterclass.

Do you troll better when you're on drugs, or not on drugs?

Re: How well do you know English?

In between fluently and competently if we have a conversation, but when I have to write something, my english became very poor and basic, as you can note.

I'm the total opposite for Spanish! Well, for any language really.

Players I support for non-tennis reasons: Murray/Ferrer/Monaco/Nadal/Isner/Li

del Potro/Nalbandian/Safin
Tsonga/Gulbis/Monfils/Dolgopolov/Verdasco
Davydenko/Kyrgios/Cilic/Muguruza

Re: How well do you know English?

I'd say fluently. I've read books in English since 11 (Harry Potter ), though I've never lived in any English-speaking country so anyone can tell that I'm not native by the way I speak. I also study in English.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal
