Pad is there ;-)

Beitrag von Padfoot »

Hello! :chief:
I'm Padfoot. As you can imagine, that's not really my name, but I choosed this nick in honour of Sirius Black (It's a character of Harry Potter; in my opinion the best saga that exist at this planet and maybe the best saga in the whole universe, but I'm not sure. I don't knwo the libraries at the Mars).



I guess, my pathetic tryings to form complex sentences did already say it: I come from Germany, I haven't any relatives or friends in outland, in the english lessons my best friend is a dictionary and my teacher is always criticizing my pronunciation, but nevertheless I'm determined (?) to learn this language. It can't be so difficult, can it?


Nice-to-know
  • I'm sixteen years old.
  • I like reading, writing, dreaming and being sarcastic.
  • I'm in love with the Harry Potter-books (in fact, that's my only big love).
  • I haven't any idea if I love or hate John Green.
  • At the walls in my bedroom are hanging quotes from Saint-Exupéry, Rowling and some verses by Shel Silverstein.
  • In my opinion, the Present Progressive is just confusing.
  • The other tenses are also confusing.
  • I'm an unhappy perfectionist.
  • Oh, and I'm a girl.




I hope my english become better with your help.


Greetings,
Pad
I'm here to learn from you.
(Can I say that in this way?)

Hello! :chief:

I'm Padfoot.
As you can imagine, that's not really my name,
but I choose this nick name in honour of Sirius Black.
It's a character of the Harry Potter series;
in my opinion it is the best saga on this planet and maybe the best saga in the whole universe,
but I'm not sure.
I don't know the libraries on Mars.

I guess, my pathetic attempts to form complex sentences gave it away already:
I come from Germany,
I don't have any relatives or friends in countries where English is a native language,
in the English lessons my dictionary is my best friend,
and my teacher is always criticizing my pronunciation,
but nevertheless, I'm determined to learn this language.
It can't be too difficult, can it?

:watch: All your lines are sentences. Therefore,
may I also recommend to use a full stop more often
to separate sentences (instead of commas).

Welcome.

Delfino made a small spelling mistake there, "chose" in this case is only spelled with one O because it has to be in the past tense. Forms of "choose" are "chose" in the past and "chosen" in the past participle.

Problems with tenses? If you ask questions about that here, I'm very likely to explain it in a way that's very different from what you've heard before (although effectively with the same result). Don't hesitate to stop me or ask further questions, I'm not always aware of how much other people understand.
You're never too old to learn something stupid.
MistakeSuggestionYou sure that's right?
