what if i was born in engalndo
namibian and english languages has so many differences
so I dont feel like that all
not at all
i'll never be as fluent in english as i am in pt
when I speak/hear English for too long I start speaking my native language in neanderthal way, I don't fully finish pronouncing my words or my sentences stop making sense, weird shit
It used to be the case before, when I used English much more than I do now (worked as a translator / media manager for 2 years). At the time, I had moments when I was really struggling to word something in Russian language, while the same thought phrased perfectly fine in English for me, and it really bothered me. Now I feel pretty comfy, just as it should be, I guess.
Sometimes I can only think of the english version of a word and I feel like an idiot. But overall my vocabulary is more extensive in german than it is in english, and I don't see that changing.
I speak a lot more English than my native language, I'm more confident while speaking English compared to my native language.
sometimes i have no idea how to say a word in romanian but i know it in english
Not even close. Although I think my english is decent, I can express myself in portuguese in a more eloquent manner (it was hard to find words to write this sentence).
even though i don't speak english as good as my mother language, sometimes when i'm chatting with someone in portguese, i forget a word and i say it in english.
yes i live in english country
I terible engilish can't do speak
nah, i can confidently speak in my native language but i cant speak in english confidently, tho i dont really have much problems communicating in english
When at school I think in Turkish, when by myself I think in English. Don't think my English is on the same level as my Turkish, not yet at least
I speak 4 languages
3 local and 1 international aka English
As i dont really know my native language, i speak english way better
i kinda learned korean english and german all together as i grew up and i feel like i'm like not as good as a native speaker in each of them so i get this a lot with every of those 3 languages
Yup, everyday. I only read English books myself and speak it daily so sometimes I will think of a word and it only comes to me in English and not in Dutch.
Nah we speak as far someone can understand what we say.
It’s good to know multiple languages but always your native go first and only.
if you talk english better than your own language imo there is a big problem
it happens if you have been using said language more than your native for some time; since i've been spending most of my time in internet where like 90% of things i do are in english, i sometimes feel the same way
I prefer my native language in art. I can feel Portuguese is more lyrical than other languages but French is another decent nice language in terms of art tbh
Btw, French > English
I have it as first language like a boss B)
Yeah, got used to it a lot. I write songs in English only and prefer singing in English as well. Talks go smooth so I like it.
I suck at English I won't ever speak it better than native language
If you can speak English better than your native language because you spend lot of time on internet and not interacting with humans in your country, you are sad nerd 😁😁
I speak very good english, but there will always be words that i can say in my native language that are somewhat advanced that i cannot translate to english.
But i still believe i speak english very well anyway. Sometimes it’s the other way around, i can’t translate some english words into my own language.
Well, I wouldn't necessarily say that I feel like I speak it better, but I very often say English words when I speak because I forget the word in my native language. My friends always troll me when I do because it seems funny to them. Also, it’s my third language but point stays the same
No, I speak Dutch and French better than English but I do think in English from time to time. Or I'll know the English word for something but not in Dutch.
English is my first german is my second spanish is my third
For me it’s easier to speak Hindi than English, but I am more fluent in writing and reading English.
I only speak American, sorry
I speak mandarin more easily compared to English as I usually use Mandarin when I am with my friends/parents and both languages are very different from each other.
Best languages to learn:
Swedish (as a Scandinavic group of EU)
i wish... but not even close
Yeah until I went to Scotland
at the point you speak it better than your native language, doesnt it just ebcome ur native language in a way
sometimes yeah especially when you know a word in English but don't remember the word in your native language (I think everyone experiences that)
no me inglish are foine butt mai braziliano's betar
Nah, but my english is pretty good I would say
especially considering how bad my friends/people I know speak
It's mainly because I use sites like HLTV and I am improving every day
Honestly, kind of. I've been in Canada for so long that I sometimes mess up my Chinese. I also sometimes subconsciously use English words randomly when talking in Chinese. Like "project, test" and other commonly used English words
Does it answer well?
No but it's my third language actually
