What brought you here?

Beitrag von Keswick »

Dear all,

I am interested in your reasons to join this forum ? Just because you wanted someone to check your essays, vocabulary etc. ? Or to find friends? To improve your English?

Regards

I am here to get the farest I can get because the limits of my languages are the limits of my life.

> What brought you here?

I think, I was looking for some information about English grammar
when I visited this website for the first time...

I'm constantly trying to prepare myself for the next step of my education -
studying Computing in South East England. I'm going to leave Germany

Are you, Delfino? That's brilliant? Whereabouts are you going? Southeast... Suffolk then? Or further South? Kent? How long will you stay?

I wish you a wonderful time in England, enjoy your stay and good luck with your studies! :freu:

About a year ago I first came here and haven't been on for, let's say 8 months? I'm not sure, I never posted much anyway, but I was wanting to learn German better and then I thought I'd check out how Germans learn English on the internet and typed in 'lernen Englisch' on google.de and the first page that came up had a link to here. I just remembered about here now and thought I'd come on.

I just love learning English. I love the country...just all. :) Last year I served an apprenticeship as a oreign languages correspondent. I live in an area with many British camps....so here live many many British people. :) I use to go out with some on the weekends. My boyfriends English as well.. :) So i just love everything what just has to do with "English". Hope I can move to England one day. :D

Hey,
I forgot to do my homework...so now my teacher tells me that I have to hand in my forgotten homework.
I worked on it for almost 3 hours and I wanted to do it perfect :)
So I thought maybe the internet could help me to do a good job and I subscribed here!

I've actually just returned to this forum after taking a long summer off. I originally came here because I was looking for a community of German speakers learning English-- the opposite of me-- in hopes that I would be able to benefit both myself and the community. I'm looking forward to aiding many posters. :spin:

Hi,
I have just discovered this forum. :freu: I am an english native speaker, I'm from England & have been living in Germany now for 17 years. My main intention was to find English people living in Germany to chat with. Of course I'll be most happy to chat with people all over the world too. :spin:

Hi,
I'm from the northwest of England. The county is Cheshire. I was brought up in a very small place (a hamlet) called Spurstow. I don't know if you've heard of it...probably not.. It's not far away from Beeston (Beeston Castle!!) It's about 12 miles away from Chester. The reason I came to Germany was 'no reason at all!!'I just deceided one day that I wanted to move on...I wasn't actually planning on staying in Germany for so long, but I like it here & haven't moved on yet..tho I'm still planning on doing so, when I feel the time is right. :wink: Hmmm, who knows, maybe I'll stay here for ever.. :lol: How about you? Where are you living right now, where are you from etc etc...?

I know where Chester is, but unfortunately I have never heard of Spurstow, sorry! And whereabouts in Germany do you live?

I live in the Northeast, in a small place between Sunderland and Durham. I was born in Lower Franconia but decided to move on after uni. The main reason was the fact that I could not find a job anywhere close to where I lived. I simply had to move to a bigger city like Munich, Cologne or Berlin. So I thought if I have to move far away from home anyway let's do something big. That's how I ended up in the UK.. with no intention of coming back any time soon, especially because my husband's a born and bred Geordie boy and moving him away from the Northeast is like moving the pyramids from Egypt to the Alps. Fair enough he says he would come with me if I really really wanted to go back to Germany.. but I don't ;) .
