Oh... thanks so much, Heinzi!  ':bussi:'

Anybody here with English as native language? I've been learning since only six years because my first chosen foreign language at school was Latin. I think my English isn't too bad but I still admire people with an excellent pronunciation and a big vocabulary.

I've English as an advanced course at school, my best opportunity to try my language skills was in March and April 2004 when I spent two months in San Francisco and Los Angeles as an exchange student.

I don´t think so,  John (?) Sausagebread.  '<img'>  

My English teacher at High school was a native american (and very cute, by the way), and I think he has had a considerable influence on me and my pronounciation, because the first thing I was asked when I spoke English at university was if I had learnt English in the United States.  '<img'>

This fred is fantastic.

I have been in these European countries: The Netherlands, France, Luxembourg, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, close to the Czechoslowakian Border, Spain, Belgium, Andorra, Monaco, Switzerland, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy and Austria.

If you signify the former GDR as a separate state I can add one more country.

Okay, I will list the European countries I've visited:

The Netherlands (1x), Belgium (2x), Luxembourg (countless), Austria (7x), Italy (9x), Vatican (2x), France (2x), Spain (3x), Great Britain (2x), Ireland (2x), Finland (1x), Malta (2x), Bosnia-Herzegowina (1x), Czech Republic (1x) and the European part of Turkey (1x).


Non European countries:

Lucky Child: The English Translation for the German "Hans" is Jack.


But isn't "Jack" a sort of nickname for "John"? Similar to "Dick" and "Richard". At least "Hans" is an abbreviation for names like "Johann" or "Johannes" and the english translation should be "Jonathan" and short "John". I know that it is "Juan" in Spain.

Yes, Jack is a sort of nickname for John, and Hans is an abbreviation for Johann, but the English version of Johann is John, not Jonathan.

According to Wikipedia (what did we do before they invented themselves?), Jonathan is not a variation of John, but a name in its own right. (See John here). So it should be Jack indeed.

I thought that Jack was an abbreviation for James. At least James was Cutie-the-English-teacher's name, and he was called Jack by his colleagues.

It seems to be rather difficult with "Jack", I never thought about James.

But: It's no wonder that your cute teacher was called Jack, because, again according to Wikipedia, James is derived from the same Hebrew name as Jacob. And it's only a small step from James/Jacob to Jack, isn't it?

Nice to see that everybody thinks about my nickname...  ':p'

By the way: In English advanced course we read Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" at the moment. Not a bad book but the best English novel I've ever read was "Lord of the Flies" by William Golding last year.

Last year I've started to read Harry Potter VI but I've admitted to me that it was too difficult.  '<img'>

Yes, it's the logical next step, as Vivian would say.  ':<img:'>
Jake works well as an abbrev. of Jacob, too.

So, JohnJack, you don't like"Brave New World" too much? Neither did I.
I think Harry Potter is not that difficult to read, once you're "in it" and caught by its magic. Stay tuned.  '<img'>

Your nickname: Right, we will call you Hans, that should settle it...

Harry Potter: Oh, you shouldn't give up on that, maybe you should try again now! It has been a long time since I was forced to read Brave New World, but I could imagine that it is quite difficult as well. At least I can remember that the foreword nearly was enough for me...
