Hi guys :wavey: Andy, Cris and I thought it will be a great idea to start a thread about langage since we are all so international LOL

And since we like learning new stuff we thought it will be great to exchange about langage here. Like if we need to know something in another langage we can ask our questions here! I know a lot of Safinettes and Safinous are langage genious so I'm shure we will have all our questions answer here !

Ok have fun!


BTW english peoples does international takes a ``s`` in the thread title? :lol:

01-18-2004, 11:57 PM
Oh dear, the only language I know is English. :\

Would someone like to teach me Russian? :)

That's excellent Allusion you'll be able to help us with our English!

I'm shure Vass can give you some tips with russian :lol:

I was talking about the thread title....do you say: langage thread for all internationals Safinettes and Safinous or for all international Safinettes and Safinous? Sorry if my question was a bit confusing LOL

Yes yes, I need some tips in Russian. :)

Well, you guys obviously know how to cheer for Marat in English, so does anyone want to chip in with their other languages?

As for international/internationals - it is the former, international....:) Like people have said before.

J'ai étudié le français, l'allemand, l'espagnol et le russe, mais le russe est trop difficile et je ne peux pas l'utiliser! Je ne pourrais pas parler avec Marat! C'est important apprendre des autres langues parce que je suis musicien classique (je joue de piano).

C'est quand même impressionnant quelqu'un qui parle toutes ces langues, mes félicitations! Le Russe est en effet très difficile à apprendre à cause de l'alphabet cyrillique. Tu es musicien ? Mon meilleur ami est aussi musicien. Il a étudié le piano classique à Montréal. Lorsque nous habitions dans la même ville j'avais mon concert privé à chaque jour! Quel compositeur préfères-tu jouer?...

J'adore écouter Chopin

Nocturne for piano No 9
Nocturne in G minor
Piano concerto # 1 in E minor, Op. 11
Marche funèbre
Polonaise

MisterQ
01-21-2004, 09:44 PM
J'adore Chopin, Catsou! J'ai joué ces deux nocturnes et le marche funébre! Chopin, il est interessant parce qu'il est né en Pologne, mais il était raffiné comme un Français parce qu'il habitait á Paris.

J'adore Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Mahler, Stravinsky, et Shostakovich aussi!

(Mais on ne peut pas joué beaucoup de Mahler et Stravinsky parce qu'ils n'ont pas écrit beaucoup de musique pour le piano!) :)

awwwwwwwww Monsieur Q. j'adore les nocturnes de Chopin et aussi les Scherzos ! Oui Chopin était très raffiné...il a eu une aventure avec George Sand à Paris ;)

Bach est tellement difficile a jouer..J'aime bien aussi Rachmaninov!

Quel est ton pianiste préféré? J'ai déjà vu Ivo Pogorelich en concert...il est très intéressant mais plusieurs le critique car il interprète et modifie beaucoup les pièces. Sa femme Martha Argerich est incroyable.

MisterQ
01-21-2004, 11:54 PM
Martha Argerich! :yeah: Elle joue avec feu!

J'aime beaucoup Vladimir Horowitz, Glenn Gould, Yevgeny Kissin, Richard Goode, Sviatoslav Richter...

I just started learning Finnish and German (and Russian.. but my Russian is virtually non-existent. Cyrillic characters confuse me!). And I really suck! But I find German the most easiest to pick up, maybe because it has more in common with English. I hope I get better :(

Swirlingblacklily: Salut! Non, je n'ai jamais visité les pays de mes parents bienque je voyage très souvent! Mais un jour j'aimerais bien les visiter...surtout l'Inde parce que je trouve la culture indienne très intéressante...malheureusement, je comprends seulement quelques mots de gujrati et d'hindi! Au fait, d'où viens-tu?

Rarzberri...I've learned French for a few years at school and I'm also studying it at uni. Mine's not that great but enough to get by hehe...just write whatever here, it really doesn't matter...just practise!

Ilhame: je suis contente que tu aimes mes photos...même si je les aime pas hehe! Tu es très gentille. Alors tu as vu Tommy à Rotterdam? J'ai entendu dire qu'il n'a pas joué bien et qu'il était assez frustré pendant ses entraînements. Je ne sais pas ce qu'il a. Je le connais depuis 2 ans et il faut dire qu'il est un mec assez bizarre! Très timide aussi...

Hola: Ja, Spanien finde ich auch toll. Letztes Jahr war ich zum ersten Mal dort (in Valencia und Barcelona) und ich muß sagen, daß es jetzt mein Lieblingsland ist! Deshalb werde ich bald in Valencia wohnen...ich werde dort Spanisch studieren. Warst du schon mal in Spanien? Ich habe auch gelesen, daß du in Rußland geboren wurdest...wo genau? In Moskau? Rußland würde ich gern besuchen!

Bonjour swirlingblacklilly :wavey:

Ton français est excellent! J'ai eu la chance de visiter le nord de la Belgique. J'ai adoré Bruges.......BelgianWaffle (Ulrike) qui visite ce forum est aussi née en Flandres! Peut-être que tu la connais! :D

Tu sais c'est la même situation ici aussi au Canada beaucoup de gens ne peuvent pas avoir de conversations avec leurs compatriotes. :sad:

Oui Catsou, écrire et lire ça va assez mais je dois bien réfléchir et chercher quelques mots dans le dictionnaire.

Fantastique que tu as visité la Belgique! [Je veux pas casser ton image de Bruges, mais la vérité -pas beaucoup de belges savent ca- est que plusieures de cettes choses vieilles sont fausses]

C'est dommage concernant la même situation au Canada! :( Mais je dois avouer que je sais presque rien de la Wallonie, les deux régions sont vraiment séparé sur pratiquement tous les niveaus.

Piano! And I compose too. :)

do you play any instruments (or sing)?

Kiara
02-28-2004, 08:09 PM
I sing, but Im frequently asked not to ;)
and I used to play the piano, I still play from time to time, by ear , I can't read music...I used to be able to as the parental units forced me to take piano lessons from ages 6-12 but I never learned how to *properly* read music.
In the beginning, I had difficulty reading the notes so my teacher used to write them out for me (like "B-Sharp, "G-Flat" and so on and so forth ) I then used to memorize the keys on the piano and play by memory(it was a long, arduous process and to simply learn how to read music would have been quicker/easier. :o )When it came to exams sight-reading was a nightmare i could never do it.
I wish I had learned how to do it the right way, put sheet music in front of me and my mind will just draw a blank, but I have alot of respect for people who can play the piano, since I struggled with it immensely.
I CAN however play the guitar, Im self taught and have been playing since i was 14, again only by ear.

MisterQ
02-28-2004, 08:25 PM
I have noticed that the guitar and piano use very different mindsets, and that people who take easily to one frequently struggle with the other. I, for example, took to the piano easily but have no aptitude for the guitar whatsoever. interesting...

Don't knock yourself for playing by ear. It's a great skill, and a part of the oral/aural tradition of music which has been weakened by the invention of notation.

:cool:

TommyRgirl je vais t'envoyer la photo ce soir. J'ai vu Tommy seulement sur les cours d'entrainements et il n'était pas content. Je ne sais pas pourquoi, mais son jeux était terrible. J'espère qu'il retrouve son jeu à Indian Wells. Comme il a souri quand je l'ai demandé de prendre une photo avec moi :hearts:

Je viens de voir qu'il a battu Jonas Björkman à Dubaï donc peut-être qu'il a retrouvé un peu son jeu! On verra bien si Marat peut battre Roger ce soir parce que le gagnant de ce match va jouer contre Tommy.
J'espère chatter avec toi un jour sur msn!

J'ai vue Tommy à la télé. Il était dans le désert avec un jeep. Il a dit qu'il aime bien visiter des coins touristiques et qu'il fait de son mieux dans le tournoi. Il portait un short, t-shirt et baskets et des lunette de soleil. Il était trop mignon!!!

Hey, I suggest you look for Pimsleur Russian cds/mp3s - I think you can download some if you search your favourite *illegal* p2p network. Depending on how much Russian you already know, you can start at the beginner levels or the higher ones. It's really good for getting to know the language and the right accents.

I think this thread is fantastic - I wonder why it died. It should I learned some French and German in high school and I'm surprised that I could follow most of what was said. I'm really interested in learning a number of languages, but I'm not very fluent in any of the other languages I know!

There are many ways to describe Marat's hair state in Russian. Literal tranlsation of some of them:

1. Взрыв на макаронной фабрике - Explosion on a spaghetti factory
2. Я упала с самосвала, тормозила головой - I fell from a truck and had to break with my head
3. Приходи ко мне в пещеру будем мамонтов пугать - Come to my cave, we'll stay scaring off mammoths.

and finally my personal favourite:

4. Поцелуй меня с разбегу, я за деревом стою - Kiss me at run, I am standing behind a tree :devil:

The sound of the "i" (ee) is short.

u l r i ke

"u" is pronounced as the u in Uma ;)
"lr" just an l and then an r
"i" is like the sound in keep, peep (but not as stretched out) or in the french word 'pire'
"ke" is pronounced as the first two letters of 'cup'

Based on what it sounds like in my ears ;) Like the 'i' in safin is represented by a letter which is like an N in the mirror (I didn't mean the reversed sound of an N, I meant the way it's written) ;)
N И
R Я

It's a weirdly written language for foreigners, we have separate letters for sounds, which are written with 2 letters in Latin

like ya = я
yu = Ю

There is a total of 33 letters in the alphabet so it's a bit complicated LOL

It's more about pronouncation difficulties. If you know alphabet and know how to pronounce letters you don't have to guess how to read a word.

I agree that moloko and korova could be a problem :) But it's nothing compared to english IMO.

I believe the best way is to enroll in a class :shrug: At least that way you can hear it from someone that does it the right way plus they can provide you with exercises and correct you. The problem is that all language classes start in september. I'll have to wait until next year :p
I did learn some italian with cd-rom though but Italian is not so difficult. My parents are learning it now and sometimes they write little texts for their class and I can translate it perfectly even without one lesson. :rolleyes:
I think the biggest problem is speaking the language. I have this problem with french. I understand quite a lot, watching french tv is no problem for me but yet in real life I have never really had a conversation in french (apart from in highschool). Same for english.

Good classes with native speakers teachers were too expensive for me. The ones I could afford :rolleyes: I had a suspicion sometimes that I know english better than teacher. And anyway classes help for the short period of time. I forget everything without practice.

I don't think it's too expensive. And since it's a credited school I'm pretty sure it's decent quality.

A man came to buy some cream for his baby for redness of the skin (from diapers) and altough I understood perfectly what he was saying I felt like a complete :retard: because all that came out of my mouth was "Oh yes, we have something *shows tube* ok? Three euros and 50 cent" :o :o

Second situation was a turkish couple explaining in french that their baby was constipated and they wanted something to fix it. I was then supposed to ask for the baby's age, come up with glycerine suppositories and say that they had to cut them in half because the dose would otherwise be too strong for such a small baby. Oh. My. God. :rolleyes: And the worst thing was that my 'boss' was in the back listening to my clumsy conversation. Luckily his mother who studied french came to rescue me. :lol:

Ulrike, you want to take English classes?

Btw, your written English is absolutely great girls, I used to teach Russian at school as some of you might know and my motto is - most important is to make yourself understood and understand what the other person wants to say, some grammar mistakes are not bad if it's not some official written text or smth.
