English writing

Let´s write in English. I would like to improve my English. I have daughter Caroline, she is 7 month old. What will you do during this week-end?

Is this meant to be conversation for those who learn English or who just want to practice their language skills or even you do not want others understand what you are talking about????

veronice: it depends on the context you want to use the phrase, can you give the whole sentence? it might be: enjoy life, enthusiasm, but depends. Thereore if you ask for let s say Slovak rozvod, in Englsh it can be divorce and distribution too. These are two completely different things. So it s better to know the whole sentence

Hello everybody! A great idea this english writing! Have you ever tried to teach your children some words in a foreign language?

alenka, not yet because my daughter is still a baby but I was in New York until my 7month in pregnancy and she seems to respond to English, she really likes English lullabies, so I keep singing them to her, I know a lot of them, and only few in Slovak, so shame on me :-N

I try to teach my little son some English songs and of course some simple words. But he doesn´t want to repeat it after me at all. ]-(

lasenka and do you have somebody who speaks english around him? I think kids who don't have the opportunity to use English are not trying or willing to learn it...

Hi! Kiwuska your English is pretty good. Where have you learnt it? Or are you English?
I'm not thinking about having a baby in the near future but if I have a baby sometime I want him/her to learn English since birth.I've heard that one of the parents should speak just English and the second one just Slovak and they shouldn't mix it because the baby connects the language with a person.

I went to visit my boyfriend(my husband) and my brother who were working there. I stayed there for a month and a week. It was terrible. It rained all the time and he last week I stayed there I wasn't able to eat because I hated the combination of the sweet bread and too salty butter and all the frozen pizza, fish fingers, chips, hamburgers...I missed "tlacenka", our vinigar, sauerkraut, vegeta...

Hi,
to: Sharlotta: I used to work par-time for an international firm before my twins were born, so that I was able to practice my skills there.
