Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies Wake up every two hours? If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing? Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are flat? Why do banks charge a fee on "insufficient funds" when they know there is not enough? Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection? Do married people live longer than single ones or does it only seem longer? Do you cry under water? Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer? Why does your Obstetrician, Gynaecologist leave the room when you get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway ? Can blind people see their dreams? Do they dream ?? If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests? (This one kills me !!!!) If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from ? :joy::joy::joy:
CEFR = Common European Framework of Reference for Languages Wikipedia summarizes the levels very well, but here's a quick reference: A1 = lower basic A2 = upper basic B1 = lower intermediate B2 = upper intermediate C1 = lower advance C2 = upper advanced I think most people consider B2 and above to be fluent, but again, it depends on who you talk to.
Very Informative, Today I learnt there's something exists that measures language fluency.
When I start learning a new language i mainly focus on phonetics of the words because there are some words which can change whole meaning of your sentence wrong pronunciation.
Here comes the second part of the question, What motivates me?
Whenever, I start learning a new language behind there must be reason like a new job opportunity, native poetry or novels. sometimes it happens that I am watching some TV show to understand it. Looking at subtitles while watching your favourite show is real pain :(
Hello, I am from India. I am fluent in Hindi, English, Punjabi and Angika languages.I would like to meet new people and stay connected with them discussing about the cultures and many more interesting topics.
Yes, Even I have seen these differences. In India, most spoken language is Hindi but you can find much differences the way they pronounce a word. In fact, you will find different meaning of same word like bebe in punjabi means Mother but in some parts of India it means sister.
Just a suggestion, If you can include the edit buttons for different profile info in front of the details instead keeping a new page, it will be easier for user to update the necessary details. As of now i have to go away from my details page to update the details.
