Found this on another website and thought it was pretty awesome.

If you like English, you now have the opportunity to talk English.
However, not everyone might be good at English, so this is a great opportunity to improve aswell. (:

So, you're allowed to talk about anything, as long as it's in English and you don't insult anyone.

Have fun!

I'm fine.
Or I was, until I arrived at school.
I don't like to say I hate school, but somehow school just happens to be the cause of all the stress..

Hey, this is a cool idea. I may improve my use of English this way. Today, at school, I gave my solo project a name. It's called Psychedelic Peanuts.

This topic is supposed to be a nice way to learn English, so.. :3

I just discovered that I actually like Lily Allen's music. Never paid much attention to it before.

You know what I just love? Waking up in the morning, not by the buzzer on your alarm clock, but just because I am well rested. And then, after you've woken up, not having to worry if I am going to be late, not having to get out of bed within a determined, hasted amount of minutes, but just to be able to lay in bed, careless, and maybe fall asleep again or maybe just lay there in soft blankets for a little while longer ^^

That's nice. :3

The mods aren't very active here anymore, it seems..


Maybe we can make a list of fun ways to learn English?
School's boring and 50% of the teachers are useless.
So I think we have to do it ourselves. That doesn't have to be hard.
Here's my list. If you have something else, tell me. (:

- Watch your favourite English series (or movies) without subtitles.
It doesn't matter what kind of series, whether it's South Park or The Vampire Diaries, you can find almost everything on the internet nowadays.

- Read your favourite books in English.
Something you already read in Dutch, or something new. English books are much cheaper as well. Wink

- English magazines!
Metalhammer, Rock Sound or something else you like.

- Last FM, or another you can communicate with people in English.
You can just talk about things you like.

- Exchange to England.
Don't ask me, but it must be fun and educative. :')

- This forum!
No seriously, I ran out of ideas.

-Try to think in English.
Lol, I sometimes even dream in English. xD

Well my hobby is writing... and Sometimes, mostly when I'm on the Tram or waiting at the Tram stop I start watching my surroundings and I tell the story of what is going on; like I am writing a story about the scene I'm in. Sometimes this is in Dutch but most often, for some reason, it is in English. I do this to practice writing even without a pen, or more modern a keyboard. It is not only practice in describing things but it is also practice in making scenes realistic: you learn to write better details into busy scenes and learn the moods of people and the way they handle their boredom.
Sometimes though, I come to the realization that I am the main character in the scene I am describing, because though short parts of the story will be about the people around me it is myself who I am always aware of, and when I make a step I write it down, and when I observe someone it is no longer their actions I am describing, but my own actions, my own thoughts about the things I see, even though my mind, occupied with telling the story, does not actually speak them out, or only with the Quote/Unquote marks at the start and end, yet still not my own thoughts to think. And then, when I realize that I am only writing down my own thoughts and actions, and I am writing down that I am only writing down my own thoughts and actions I realize that it is starting to bug me, how I am writing everything I do, even though not in paper, and that I can not seem to stop myself. I even write down in thought that I can not stop writing down that I can not stop writing that down. An endless spire begins to unravel and there are but little ways out of it, and the fear of forever repeating that I am repeating what I am repeating becomes a fear that moves me to rid myself of this endless writing in English. "And he finally told himself: 'Stop writing down what you are thinking and just start thinking' He said" and then, after realizing the Quote/Unquote was there, followed by the "He said", his mind just- HA! My mind, not that of the character that is me. See how hard it is to stay clear and realize that this is not a story I am writing about a character made up after my image, but an abnormality that sometimes acts up while trying to better my skill in writing. Caught I sometimes get in the web that is writing, for even when I wish to lay down the pen that is not there my mind can not always let go so easily.
Now i shall rid myself of this English before it tries to catch me once again and make me believe that my fingers are not part of a body that is under my control, but that the keys they press down are the fabric of a world that is a reflection of my own imagination, even when I forget that it is all inside my head.

Finally I apologize, for the stormcloud that sometimes slips through my fingers out of my head, to express the chaos that from time to times becomes me.

That sounds strangely familiar. I sometimes have a discussion with myself. Think about things that have no answer.
I think a lot. Most of the time I like it, but when things keep spinning around in my head, it can be pretty annoying.

Maybe I should go to bed now.

I used to play RuneSacpe (no kidding XD) a looong time ago.
I didn't speak a single word of English, but it helped me.
Things like sword, shield, helmet and battle axe aren't very useful in rl.
But I also learned words like fishing, cooking, crafting, names of many animals and other skills.
Or things like bucket, dish, gloves, guard etc.

Crap. Now I feel like playing RuneScape again. xD
I think a lot of things have changed since I last played.
Ah well, I sucked anyway.
