hi learners! I've to ask you for something I'm writing my graduation thesis on the project tandem (when two people help each other in learning their different languages like we do here on skype). My teacher asked me to give here some examples of conversations in which english is used to say something we don't know in the language we are practicing (if for example we are spanish and we don't know how to translate 'perro' in italian we use the english word 'dog' in the discourse to solve the comunication problem).
Let's take a look at the picture. We can write a short or a long sentence with your native language and English( via Google translate), to describe these keywords" who, what, when, where" or even " why, how, how much", use your imagination!!
This is my first post, and I just would like to introduce myself. I am Brazilian, 28 years old, I work as web developer in a multinational company and I'd like to improve my English as well as help those people who want to learn Portuguese. In july I`m moving to Canada, I'm going to stay there for one year in order to study and work.
I´m learning Sanskrit at university and I hope to find other people who want to conversate about it, perhaps not in Sanskrit, but maybe we can help eachother with problems (for examples the Sandhi - Rules)
