Hi,

I'm a German living in London and I've written a collection of comical short stories to basically take the mick out of everything and everyone. It already sells well in the UK. If this is something for you, please take a look at Excuse me, where is the exit? 99cent, and if you like to sample it, you could visit my blog http://wordsbystelladeleuze.blogspot.com/p/and-you-think-its-funny_05.html

Cheers,

Stella

So does yours. I'm quite interested in psychology. I guess it's available in the UK, too? I'll check this out. Makes a good lecture before going to bed. Thank you, Bakari.

Hello! I have a mixed genre book of mostly humorous short stories that are easy to read. Popular with teachers!
The title is Free Pecan Pie and Other Chick Stories by Janelle Meraz Hooper
Good luck! I'm trying to learn other languages too. It's a challenge!

Are you saying my English is crap? haha

You might be right, you know?

Stella, it's obvious your English is much better than my German! I'm working on it! (; Janelle

Well, German is much harder to learn, I just have the advantage of being German. I did learn Spanish for many years, too. Give me a months or two and I should be fluent. But still a far cry from my English :-)

Oh, Stella, I'm so bad at languages. I've taken two Spanish classes and have not been able to retain enough to order a tortilla. And I'm part-Hispanic! In the Southwest, they discouraged Hispanic children from learning Spanish so they'd do better in school. How dumb was that?!

A friend of mine once said America is the best half-educated country. (He's not a fan, go figure.)

I think it's totally rubbish to do that. Kids who grow up bi-lingual have a clear advantage. So sorry that you weren't allowed to speak both languages. Think it's still about the racism. Shame really.

Antwort auf einen früheren Beitrag vom 13.05.2011 17:02:25 GMT+02:00
It is a shame. More shameful is that I listened to them! What an obedient child I was!
As far as education goes here in America--some areas are better than others. Surpriseingly, it's not the richer areas that always do better. In the end, it comes down to the people. Machines cannot do everything. I've had some wonderful teachers and some poor ones.
My stories are all over the Internet. If you run into one of them you'll see what I mean when I say they're easy to read.

That's when you really want to shake those people who make the decisions. I feel previleged to have been raised in Germany. I got the choice between French and Spanish and went for Spanish. If you speak English, German and Spanish, you get around quite well.

I really want to learn Chinese. Perhaps one day when I've got more time :-)

Antwort auf einen früheren Beitrag vom 13.05.2011 21:07:59 GMT+02:00
You could be a tour guide!
If I wanted to learn Chinese, I'd start with a Chinese menu (:

A tour guide?? No bloody way, nothing worse than having a bunch of silly people, who won't be back at the bus in time and need extra attention following you around. :-)

Ha! It sounds like you've seen them! Most of my trips are combined research/vacation trips. I don't write about europe, so we don't go abroad. This summer, for instance, we're going to the Mescalero Indian Reservation in New Mexico.
I've just lowered the price on my Bears in the Hibiscus humorous romance book--it's now $3.99. You would like it. It's a real beach book (nothing complicated). Bears in the Hibiscus I think I've posted the link, but it looks a little funny to me...
Have a great week!

Seen it all, yes. I'm in London and when you dare to go into the city you're swamped with tourists. I've been a tourist, too, but hopefully not one of the horrible kind. I'm more the interested one who asks a lot of questions, or even better, rents a car and find out myself. ;-)

What drives me crazy is I always hear about the shops from people when they get home. When I went to St. Thomas, I didn't want to shop. I just wanted to go to the beach! When I do go into crowds I like to watch the people. I come from Oklahoma where the end of the Trail of Tears was. Now, There was some people-watching! I grew up watching the Indians, farmers, and old ladies go by on the streets of my hometown. A lot of them are in my stories.

No, what I hate the most are people who go on holidays to go into the pub or restaurant where they serves their familiar food, instead of trying to drive out into a smaller village and eat some local food. Grrrrrr. I don't know why these people go on holidays at all.
