Absolutely frillicking good the way he cantabulates the embrulactions there.

mrw im not a native english speaker http://f3nation.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/BEAN-say-what.jpg
I’m a native speaker and I have no damn clue what he just said.
I like to learn english by watching shows with (at most, but usually without) english subs. I feel the most fucked when people start talking in big words and i either have to pause and look it up or try and figure out wtf they mean. I usually fail the latter.
That’s pretty much how I’m slowly attempting to learn German. I tried a similar method with Japanese and Anime, but the difference in sentence structure made it impossible for me.
Well, the actual learning (imho) is impossible without a teacher or at least a book! I’ve learnt english for 3 years when i first got my satellite TV access and with it Cartoon Network.
Then, after years of zelaous toon-watching, CN got subscription-bound and i lost my access to native englisgh speech. I graduated from elementary school, had my basic english exam, I went to high school and got my broadband access and with it english/american mvies and later shows. At the end of HS i took both my intermediate and my advanced exams. But I had a tutor, because my HS class wasn’t worth shit.
TL:DR: imo the easiest way to learn is having a source of native speech but supported by academic knowledge.
I doubt I’d be able to learn a 2nd foreign language, because i had it freaking easy and those circumstances won’t happen again probably. 🙁
Part of the reason I picked German also is because my brother is fluent in it, as he spent a good few years on Rammstein Air Force Base while in the army, so I always have him to fall back on if I need to.
Rammstein Air Force Base? That is so fucking metal!
All you need to know is he’s trolling this poor bastard, who admittedly left himself wide open by boasting that he’d collated every single word in the English language, by throwing made-up words at him.
Blackadder: [about the dictionary] It’s the most pointless book since “How to Learn French”… was translated into French.
Blackadder gets an automagical upvote from me.
Extra points for Hagrid
so do you!
Has anyone read “Edmund: A Butler’s Tale” by the famous Edmund Blackadder?
Not yet… races off to see if library has it… nope but i did find this: http://www.amazon.com/Edmund-a-butlers-tale/dp/B00C9FIKFG/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1425354855&sr=
