a lazy Saturday...
What am I doing here at this time of the day... 1.45 p.m.?
Well, actually I've just finished my breakfast, and thought it would be a nice change if I wrote something when there's light outside - and not dawn which I often witness when I finish blogging!
Sophie, thanks for all the comments on my posts, and all the poetic expressions you teach us! This blog-writing method of learning is actually quite effective: whenever I want to reply to something you wrote, I normally read your text for a number of times, so by the time I've done that, all the new phrases are firmly fixed in my memory!
As you seem reluctant to depress me further by pointing out more errors to me (just kidding :), I have another question - but you don't have to answer it straight away, you may want to wait towards the end of the month. So, the question is, what should I be doing to sound more natural – if not more correct – in English? I know the general long-term answer: „immerse” in the language more, by talking to English people, reading books, watching films etc. I try to do that, of course, but maybe you can point out something more specific – and I don’t mean a single error here or there, but things like vocabulary, structure, style... Please write anything that you’ve noticed, even if it is very subjective.
I’ll have to go now, as our lawns want mowing (or more likely, it is my mum’s imagination – I mowed them last week only! ;)
Thanks for all your contributions. This blog has now closed and can no longer accept new comments.
