Soy nerd, que me interesa a aprender idiomas.
Me defiendo bastante bien en #español. (~B1 informalmente)
Je parle un peu.
Je parle l'anglais, mais je voudrais ne écrire pas dans lui.
Vivo @ elekk.xyz - Videojuegos, BuJo, y los cacoposteaos.
Por favor corrijame cuando estoy equivocada.
Soy nerd, que me interesa a aprender idiomas.
@booktoot despotrico sobre los libros. y #LanguageLearning va a ir aquí. 😀
My native language is English, but I'm going to try to avoid using that. 😉
Staying home and need something to do? How about learning a new language!
There'll be a #LanguageJam again on 27th-29th March. The idea is to study a new language as much as possible in one weekend.
Register now, and you'll get your randomly assigned language in good time for you to grab some study material.
The Japanese calligrapher who keeps a forgotten female ancient script alive
pensamientos sobre el género
decía mis frustraciones con el francés (que no continua porque tanto el género) pero mi hermano no comprendía.
él decía que tan male con el francés y me animaba que ignore los académicxs.
¡Significo uso real aunque! Además no quiero ser género , pero no puedo explicarlo, porque no puedo decir "Soy nonbinarie"
él pensaba asunto feminista.
I was expressing my frustrations with French (basically being not sure I want to continue with it, because of how gendered it is, even compared to Spanish), but my brother didn't get it. He felt I was being too hard on French, and encouraged me to ignore what the academics think.
I'm talking actual use though. And I don't want to be gendered, and I can't get him to understand that, because I can't say the simple words "I'm nonbinary". I think he thinks it's a feminist issue.
An interesting study on English-#Japanese learners dictionaries and problems relating to gender and sexuality:
I should learn more about it before I commit, but I'm beginning to feel like I should learn #ASL.
I actually had an interest in it as a child.
I do worry though. Isn't
eye-contact a big thing? That's something I don't.... excel at.
Debo aprender más antes de comprometerme, pero me apetece aprendiendo ASL.
Me apetecía cuando era niñe.
Me preocupo aunque. ¿No depende de contacto visual? Lo apesto.
Hi. I'm new here. I'm Otorongo.
Watashi ha Otorongo deus.
I'm a native spanish speaker and this is my account for my english side (and maybe other sides as well :-]). I've was studyng english in an institute until the intermediate level, then i left. I'm noticed that i am forgetting English so i think its a good idea to use the fedi to keep it fresh and healthy.
If I'm wrong about something, please correct me.
Jaa ne ヽ(・∀・)ﾉ
*lazily clicking through wikipedia* well i dont know about any of this "gay" stuff... personally, i always thought that Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, a poem that is very dear to my heart, deals with themes of Temptation and testing, Hunting and seduction, Nature and chivalry, Games, Times and seasons, and Emotion and narrative empathy. Just my personal opinion!
ahhh, just another day being a 19th century medeivalist, spreading the idea that the european middle ages were a civilised time when men were men and women were women, and they all acted according to the same highly civilised rules... now to take a look at my evidence for these claims... HEY WHAT THE! WHERE DID IT GO?
and plus, if Sir Gawain and the Green Knight isnt about men being gay, you probably think its about uhh "courtly love" and the fucking uhh "chivalric code", things that definitely actually existed, right? like, it wasnt just made up by 19th and early 20th century historians to create a false image of a monolythic middle ages that served their heterosexist and white supremacist ideology? BZT WRONGO
specifically, with regards to Sir Gawain and the Green Knight: "how dare you call the kisses gay? men kissed each other as a sign of friendship all the time?" Fact check: True. You know what else is tru? if they WERE trying to fuck, they would ALSO kiss each other. ALSO there are medieval theologians who do condemn men kissing, its almost like people in the european middle ages didnt all think the exact same thing, BITCH
Are there any sign languages that don't use pointing by fingers to denote persons and personal pronouns, or is pointing a universal feature?
How is this done in cultures where politeness and honorability are highly valued?
Is there a division between different (macro)regions and their sign languages in this regard?

@sato1108ss y yo hemos necesitados la motivación para estudiar el español (la faltamos últimamente). Me sugirió que escuchemos la música. ¿Pero qué sugerencias (la música o no) tienen? Ahorita solamente pienso en Shakira. Obviamente hay otres.
