I have to reflect before !

As you seem eager to improve your English, I think you will be happy if I correct you a bit.

I guess you choose the word : "reflect" thinking it's the English term for the French : refléchir. But, in fact, reflect, in English is used when we speak about mirror and water and the image that appear in mirroring surface.

If you want to say that you need to think a lot before writing in English, because words don't come naturally in your mind, then you can use those word or expression : think about, reflect ON or reflect UPON.

to learn more about the correct use of "reflect", you can have a look : here

I come here more often than you probably think. But I have rarely the time to write an answer. :p The time, or the motivation, I have to admit.

but I appreciate those who are aware that their english need to be improved and who make the effort to do what is necessary to do so. And, as I spend 2 years in England and improved my english by this time, I will try to help you as much as I can.

And, I ask to those who speak a better english than me to correct me as often as necessary. !

I like your poem hélène,always so funny your papers => you need a verb here otherweise it's quite strange. "your papers are always so funny" could be a possible correction
I'm impatient of know your past of Hippi => "I'im impatient TO KNOW" or "OF knowING"
I got a good gaze => I think "I have a good gaze" would be better. and even "gaze" is maybe not quite appropriate for it means "regarder fixement" (for instance,in the expression "to gaze into space" = regarder dans le vide)

in spite of those things, my answer is : significant for what ? geek if you're thinking to a knife or something like that, you're wrong ... my character is more distinguished than that ^^ (and more special also XD)
Again, the answer lies in the french text and I won't try to explain it to you here because it's really complicated to say it in english ...
But thanks for your reading Wink

Thank you Morrigan for your corrections.
In fact, I said "significant" because I believed to understand that your character was going to commit a murder and that he had teeth in metal... (Ihope that my incomprehension does not go too far ...) Anyway geek

Thank you also Kalystah, for the interesting link Smile

Edit : I missed my oral of English, the stress ...

oh,great you have understood it in fact ^^ it's a little bit more complicated (that's not his teeth that are metallic but a kind of device that immitates the fangs of a snake, hence the name of this character : Snake ...)
but the murder .. not sure for the moment ^^ and I even believe that he won't but I still have to write the following.

er, not cool for your oral,right ... :s but I'm sure you'll do better then Smile t'was not an assessment ? (I mean, something that will count for your BAC ?)

"it doesn't " Wink
by the way, I think that saying that you "failed your oral" is better than "miss" because miss is more when you're not here rather than making a bad performance ...

and I hope you'll do better so that your new teacher (me, of course) would be proud of you XD *no non,my ankles are not so huge ^^*

yes,that's the meaning. I'll post it quite soon because all of you are really nice and encouraging and you give the will to follow in that way ! ::love::

Oh, an English topic!
I like English (even though I have juste failed an exam in this language T.T).
I recently had to write a short story for my English teacher, it is currently 15 pages long^^ I may post some extracts, it's a fantasy story and my pseudo comes from the main character's name xD

YEAH!
That's fine,dear Iron ⭐

Since a long time without saying anything else there, but I'll try it again cause you ask me a question, Reader, and I thank you for that cause I'm Happy to improve my english again.
Firstly, I may say that I'm happy to meet you there,and that's funny cause I said you just ten minutes ago "see you soon" in the topic where you made your introduction today at the AE.
So, in my little poem : mop have the meaning of "tignasse" you know !
Phylla is the "little mop", I made that poem for him...he has a very long mop back in his bottom, he is a good friend of my son, Victor, I hope you 'll meet them soon.

You spik meïbi laïke zat in Inegliche... ::lol:

You can watch DVD in English, it will help you to improve your English listening, I think... (do we say "English listening" by the way ? I'm not sure XD)

You also can read books in English. You said that you have read and liked Harry Potter. The English books are quite easy to understand and to read !

Finally, an English trip could improve your level a lot. However, it's a little bit more expensive...

The meaning of soon is simple there:it's"bientôt",when I said "see you soon" I would like to say:
A bientôt
I'm improving my english there cause my level is not high but I think that's important to try.
Anyway yours is not so bad, you know!And to make progress, you could read a dictionnary at first?
And, for sure,Morrigan,our great teatcher will see you as soon as possible!



please....help us dear doc Morrigan lol!

I think oral comprehension is too risky at the secondary school ... I also try but I also miss bounce
And, like Hélène said, Morrigan will be a good teacher, if she indeed wants to give free lessons ::rolling::

Of course I will, my dear little pupils ::lol: (so funny for me who doesn't want to be a teacher ... maybe I should actually ^^)

Hmm,so. Reader,I'm very happy to see you here and although I don't want to hurt you but you have some progress to make ... But we'll be here and it's so much better to learn with friends,without any threats about results and juste have fun.

So I would firstly suggest you to ask,whenever you don't understand something (and after a little check in a dictionnary,perhaps ::rolling:Smile and we could try to explain it more easily in English ...it would help you.

(I think I won't be very comprehensible in fact xD tell me if I'm not, but I like to speak in English)
