    Those two mistakes or awkward remarks in particular should be insanely difficult to find among people that actually got immersed for a year in the UK, yet you had two at the same time.



    Are you angry? Your tears taste good.

    I don't see why tourists that have spent decades in a given country are less reliable to make a point about a given nation than someone who brags about having spent a year of "truly immersion" in the UK but who still isn't able to write an impeccable English.
    The main point about what she's saying is not about grammar or languages, but about dress habits and British culture (from a very general standpoint, sure). So trying to attack her just because she made a few mistakes, even though you have made a very big one before, as you know, I'm talking about verbs, it's just plain stupid. Like the Spanish proverb says: "Qué tienen que ver el tocino con la velocidad". Pobody's nerfect, I know.

    Oh come on Hole, that`s such a cheap way out... Knowing things about a country isn`t linked to one`s spelling/grammar.

    LMAO. Of course I commit mistakes, when I arrived there my english level was poor, It is impossible to adquire the C2 level in a year, first of all, it is necessary to speak perfect english to know the country you live in? Secondly, if you try to embarrass me...Should I care about your opinion of my English level? I feel really proud because I had to deal with things there That i thought I couldn't at first sight, so easy to speak behind a screen.

    It was more like a typo error, no big deal.

    I know what the issue was about and I'm not trying to attack her, just that as she bragged about having spent a year of "truly immersion" in the UK to nullify my opinion at least she should be able to write "understimate" and such correctly.

    If you think that way it's pretty sad then.

    You don't need to lie, it was pretty obvious. And, for sure, linking knowledge about a country to grammar is so partial it's TRULY sad. Sure it's more or less important in an academic context, but, to what extent when talking about manners? In my biased opinion, not so much.

    Nope, I can't. I can perceive a lot of animosity from you.

    It was not a lie. She loves to play the victimist card. In reality I just said that maybe she needed to hang out in better places and she got all worked out from there which is what I understand from her sarcastic remarks that came afterwards, I just answered accordingly.

    You like sayings, let me tell you one: "if you want to catch a fish, be sure you have the proper bait and cane".

    Maybe the saying isn't like that, but you should be able to get the point.

    Come on Hole, that's plain funny coming from someone like you. At least to the image I have attached to the "Hole" nickname here in El Konsultorio, playing the victim when you're trapped in a dialectical corner. And you know it.

    And I just saw the "understimate" mistake and it seemed to be another typo error. You know, something extremely common not even writing in a foreign language.

    I`m really not good at this whole sarcasm stuff. So I`ve basically got no idea how this was meant.

    Yeah Vanitas, sure lol, you know me so well. Can't believe you're still angry because of what I told you months ago in that thread about music.

    It's not that, If you talk as an expert about a country I think you should be able to be an expert about something as imporant as the language used in that country. Just like I think you're supposed to learn a native accent no matter how natives may consider "cute" yours.

    Of course it's not that you have to share this view, but that won't stop me from feeling sadness about those who don't share my view.

    Oh, and yeah, just for the record, I also feel sadness about myself as I don't write or speak as John Wayne did. I also feel bad about the fact I don't speak neither Korean nor Japanese.

    --

    Anyway, it's like you guys are cranky or something. I admit I meant to tease Lupicinia or anyone else that showed by (teasing is customary in this thread in case you haven't noticed) but as you guys got so worked out I decided to be more rampant on you.

    But you bore me now, at least Oceano is able to throw me some nigger shit to me.
