    That’s OK
    When you first joined the forum I didn’t know if Thijs was a man or a woman’s name!
    I used to be working a lot with men in the days when there weren’t many women in some science and engineering jobs.

    he ralf

    it was more of a try for me to whrote german,that can correctet by you if you want.
    i the 7,5 years that i have drived in germany there ware just a vew that try to speak dutch,one of them was a BAG beambte (bundes autobahn gestapo) as we called it.
    just acros the border they won`t even try to speak dutch,
    but with hands and feets and a little bit of stonecole german we manage it.

    i always get there where they send me,and much more importent,i always came back

    Hey Thijs, that correction would be a hard job . The Dutch syntax is totally different to the German, so writing is difficult. Speaking and hearing is more familiar. But your sentences are well understood, so it is totally O.K..

    Don't forget: The Dutch people normally try at least to speak German, while the Germans normally don't think about speaking Dutch. They expect, that all Dutch people understand German!!

    For me is a rule, that i try to speak English until someone offers to me to speak German. The younger Dutch people prefer English, of course.

    because my english is not that good and sometimes diffeculd to place what i i want to write and what i read.
    so it is hard to place it in the wright perspective (??)

    but i am also at a dutch modelbuilders forum,and there can i do everything in my own language,and than i can also being sarcastic,while athers don't see that,and we have again a argument.

    so thats why i ask, if it was sarcastic.


    thanks ralf,to make me feel not the only one with the language problem.

    aber das gleiche habe ich auch mit der deutsche sprache,weil ich fahrer bin (aber nicht mehr soviel in deutschland),werde nur der wurde gebraucht die mit meiner job zutun hatte.
    wan ich das afschreibe muste, werde das auch slimmer fur mir.

    auf der modelburse uber hier in holand stehen auch deutcher,und das war viel leichter fur mir ,dan wan ich mit der brittischer manner reden mus

    so ralf ,feel free to correct it

    Thank you for those nice comments Ralf.
    I had some speech difficulties as a child and was also very shy in those days. Attempts by parents and teachers to “improve” my speaking and writing only made me worse. So I was usually the quiet one observing but not participating in activities with others, especially those my own age. But when the opportunity arose to talk about things that really interested me, things I was enthusiastic about, I became a different person, as if you had pressed a switch marked “extrovert”. So I learned I could communicate best by just being myself, instead of trying to speak and write “correctly”.

    I remain rather awkward in telephone conversations and have only just arrived in the 21st century as far as the mobile phone is concerned!!!!

    I think I started the OT comments here because I was in the process of writing something really long about my Greenland trip for Fram’s thread when I paused to look at janihudi’s post. (And I've promised to write a lot about my July Norway visit too.) But don’t worry Ralf – it is just an introduction to other posts with much more photos!!!!

    No, Seagull never would speak sarcastic about our ability to speak and write English. I can assure you that although i never met her.

    I understand very well, what she wants to express, because i sometimes see her posts and have to postpone real reading to a later opportunity. For such long posts i just need some time, several re-readings and sometimes also a look in the dictionary. But for me it is the same, i like to get more and more experience with English language. I need it also during my work but there the topics are often very reduced. So i like here to communicate with the whole world about... what ever!! This is better and more worthy as an evening school. But Seagull and all the other "English Native Talkers" - don't be shy and feel free to correct me, if i am repeating the same mistakes again and again.

    (See, I’ve felt free to make some corrections!)

    Yes they probably think the same way, but might not be able to explain their thoughts so well in
    writing as you did.
