@SmirGel : Like how do you mean? What part of English is it you'd like to learn?

Good luck finding anyone - even people who study it - who can even do that, let alone teach it. Conversational and formal English are drastically different... And every place (Australia, Canada, USA, England, etc) has their own dialect and own words. My "cookie" would be an Englishman's "biscuit", for example.

I can help you with understanding a lot of the major differences, why not to try to learn American English before British English, and formal English. Any native speakers can help you with conversational English for their dialects.

PM me and I'm more than happy to tutor you in the evenings over the summer. Right now I'm swamped with work.

the way I mean flawlessly is that I don't make any mistakes like saying wrong time "witch" and so on...

I speak a minute amount of Hebrew (I used to be able to carry on conversation, but it's been like... three years since I've been studying it XP), and a bit of French. I'm not very good at French...

Even though I was born in Canada, my first language is actually Polish! :) I also know English (obviously XD) and I'm currently learning French in school.

Well in my school we were forced under the threat of death to learn another language so for a couple of years I learnt italien but cannot really remember any of it and for five years I learnt german but can barely remember that.

"Wo ist mein handy? Es ist verloren und das ist nicht gut.   Ich liebe kartoffel es ist sehr lecke. Was ist deine lieblings esse miene ist fisch mit pommes, und meine lieblings trinke ist coke und du?

(umm yeah I think that is all spelt right.)

You speak it, Jason? Or is that a yay I can't tell XDD
Ooooh latin~ Had to sing tons of latin while I was in choir, though I understand about three words of it XDD
Prize for you for learning such a difficult-appearing language!

i know little bits from back in grade school....some colors and animals...one phrase...

also thank for the congratulations.  This language has to be the hardest next to speaking Chinese.....There are a like a billion endings to memorize and then these exceptions to those.....
i feel thine pain... im taking latin as well... its a mandatory high school class at my school... but if much prefer japanese, which im trying to learn now.

Konbanwa! (good evening)
It seems like humans have forgotten that they are animals at heart... We furries awakened to that truth...

What could that mean?

O.o Random Browsing and reviving a thread lol

I know...
French (only grade 9 in Ontario but that's still pretty decent as i can survive in France on my own with french by this point)
Classical Latin (I HATE THIS SO MUCH and learned like 1 1/2 years of it)
German (one year, didn't learn THAT much)
Mandarin (though i am Chinese, shamed to say that my reading skills SUCK really bad in mando but can carry complex conversation to a limited degree and is just amazing at listening. If im forced to take a langauge in uni, its gonna be mando...)


wow Latin is popular in Us high schools O.o

I speak a little bit of French, but not really a whole lot. We learned core French through grades 4-9. However my grades 8 and 9 teachers were awful, and so I didn't learn hardly anything at all :/. But yes I know very basic French.

The other two (unofficial) languages I speak are Hockey, and Internet...
