@Mrs Heisenberg: well I do all of that but I really miss having conversations. I think that's what really helps your English. So I'm hoping I can find some English-speaking group or something to maintain a good level...
I love Lagertha ! She is so cool !lilly-lou;4717553 a dit:Oh my God, I'm glad meeting a female who actually likes "Viking"! This show is clearly not popular enough, the characters constatly change except for Ragnar, and I think it makes the show quite real about human nature confronting/facing power. And there are a couple bad-assfemale characters (Lagertha ! )
undefined a dit:I hope i didn't write silly things I study english at college, but we do high scool things... Actually, we just watch videos and the teacher ask us some questions like "who are the characters ?", " What do they do ?", "Why" ? So... Im really interested in that topic, it could help me a lot ! I love english, i got no problems to understand (thanks to tv shows), but it's more difficult to express myself. I don't think i will progress in college...
I was referring to "Maybe if we quote the major mistakes of a post in bold letters, the writer could try to correct them on her own? And only then ask for help?"mrs-heisenberg;4717887 a dit:I meant in the case of a girl who'd like to be corrected, as I suggested earlier: 'Maybe those of you who want to be corrected can mention it at the end of their posts…'petitplat;4717588 a dit:Maybe we're over-thinking this.mrs-heisenberg;4717446 a dit:I agree about the communication aspect, but I'd just add that there are rules to be understood; if not respected, the communication becomes difficult because what is written is partly or quite ununderstandable. I know how that sounds, I don't mean to offense anyone of course, just draw the attention on this problem.
Maybe if we quote the major mistakes of a post in bold letters, the writer could try to correct them on her own? And only then ask for help?
(Damn it, I said I wouldn't take part in the debate )
If someone says something that is not understandable - well we can just ask and clarify.
aaaah! Now I got itmrs-heisenberg;4720065 a dit:@petitplat Yes I know, let me start all over again. I meant that, if a girl wants to be corrected, she can mention it at the end of her message, and first her major mistakes could be quoted in bold letters, so that she could try to correct them on her own, and then only we could help her. But it's just a suggestion.
aaah the ugly head of perfectionismdoubleinfinity-;4720281 a dit:@PetitPlat After reading what you wrote, i tried to find movies where women are not just seen as objects. And... it's hard to get. But if you ask somebody about superheroes movies, you will have plenty of answers in just 5 sec' !
I recently watched Top of the lake, it's very great and brilliant.
I also like Äkta människor, Bea is a pretty interesting character.
And yes, you really should start Vikings, maybe just for the music !
I think im just so overwhelmed by the society we live in... I see eveything with my "feminist glasses" Maybe i've become an embittered person who seeS evil everywhere.
Can someone please correct my mistakes ? I'd be grateful, i'm losing my english because of the crap we do at college...
Sorry for just popping in your conversation, didn't find any better way to start participating .petitplat;4720467 a dit:I haven't seen many good films anyway recently.
The last claimed super-film was gravity, and I found it rather bleak and boring. No scenario, nothing really new, just a woman and pretty pictures. I find it a bit sad that it go so much publicity, but at least it was all about a woman.
Maybe you'd like season 3 of American Horror Story? It's about witches, has a lot of great female characters, and I swear it's not scary, or not very much (I'm not very brave when it comes to horror movies, but I can watch this one after dark. Unlike season 1 and 2. )petitplat;4720467 a dit:Talking about women, 'Orange is the New Black' is not too bad, I watched the first season but then forgot about it. I don't really relate to the story and there's nothing supernatural in it hehe
