We often say "I'll die wiser"

C'mon! I'm pretty sure that there are many french people here in Roumania. And probably more will come, as italians already did.

All corrections are welcome due to my bad grammar.
English lessons at school are far back in the past. More than 22 years.
And translations by websites are not often right.
But because I am frequently on the road ,especially in F, E and P, rarely elsewhere, I like to come here.
And yes, I read a few weeks ago you come from eastern France.
But, it's curious to see a french in Romania. Your job certainly.
Keep up your good contribution here.
Same thing to others.
But don't worry, native english speakers are very few here, and your english seems good!

I'm not very good in english too, in fact I was talking a little bit, but before I came on SSC, I never really written in english since few years (since I finished high school, for me it's only 6 years ago, but I was very bad in english at school and I was asking myself in what it could be useful... ), I improved my english while traveling (surely the best way to learn english...), and also in Romania (I found it way easier to speak with a non-native speaking english person as they speak most of the time like me, slowly and with comprehensible words.... ).

Ok, nice!

I firstly came here asking about road conditions in the balkans, I was planning a roadtrip (I still haven't do this roadtrip, but I kept all the information and I will surely do it during the next year)... And in fact I really liked the cool ambiance here, and I became more and more fascinated by roads and infrastructures in general... even before that I came on SSC, I was for example following any news about the roads in Romania, and especially the building of the highways witch is quite interesting (and funny or sad, I don't know... for example they are currently rebuilding a part of a road that has been poorly build only 9 month after the opening of the motorway in question : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=8578 ), but I truly find SSC wonderful, all those informations on the same place and so much people interested/passionate about it

Yes, I'm currently studying in Romania, I already done 4 years (and I have only 2 more years to do from now... ). It's hard for me to be in Romania (but it's a more interesting country than what we believe in western Europe about it... ), but there is many good aspects, and (in relation to SSC), I have seen here so much change/improvements in only 4 years... this is fascinating, in comparison I wouldn't have seen such thing in France.

Thanks, the same about what you will post!!

Yes, I know many students go in Romania. Particularly for medicine studies. Same thing in Belgium for french students also.
And since Romania is into the european community, many factories closed their doors in France and offer to their employees a job there.
With a romanian salary of course.
Only engineers or high payed employees choose to change their life.

How is it possible ?
There is enough space to build the highway by avoiding to pass on each side of the farm.
They certainly live with ears protection all the time with all the highway noise around.

I missed your post!

About medicine studies, I wouldn't use "many" as "few" seems more appropriate as for example in Arad we are only around 60 french students... not so much compared to italians for example that are something like 500 in here in medicine I suppose...

Cemetery between both carriageways of the A-6 in Las Rozas, Madrid: https://goo.gl/maps/24ERkzDwZWG2

CEDEX (Centro de Estudios y Experimentación de Obras Públicas), a civil engineering research centre between both carriageways of the M-607 again in Madrid: https://goo.gl/maps/QpAcJUB66c22

Actually, that's quite an appropriate location for the latter

Here is the way how to become proficient in 3 languages having bought just one textbook .



Actually, I have not purchased it - it's my slightly delayed birthday gift, which I recently received. Quite expensive, but with no doubts worth the money spent.

Interesting, but BCS is only speaked by 19 millions native speakers, if you only look at the numbers it would have been more interesting to learn german, spanish or french for example and if you want even more, you can look at indian or mandarin so you would be able to speak with billions of people on this earth!!

Learning those languages is matter of something else than only pragmatism

'Slovensky', by the way, is kind of Slavonic lingua franca. It is, in my opinion, best Slavic language to know if one would like to communicate in the world of Slavs. And, with no doubts, Slovak shares more common vocabulary with South Slavic languages (Western group, at least) than Polish. However, since I started learning BCS a few months ago, I discovered incredibly huge amount of words in the latter, which have same roots, cores and ethymology as many less commonly used words in Polish or not used anymore. For example: South Slavic "prst", which means 'finger' is not in use in Polish today, however, core "prst" still can be found in a word "naparstek", which means 'thimble'. In the past we used word "parst' or "pirst" to describe four fingers of fist, same as Slovaks now (as far as I know). "Palec" was only for 'thumb'.

A guy in Turin stole a scooter and tried to take it home by tram. Of course he was arrested soon.

He seems to be biting his nails. I can see what is on his mind: "Am I suspicious or not? No... no... I can't be... but... "

You may know this song from Bathory movie. She was one of the most severe serial killer in Hungarian Kingdom. The lyrics are in old Slavic language. You can hear the elements of Serbo-croatian, Polish, but also Czech language. I do not understand 40 % of it though

I understand all of it. It doesn't seem to have much of old in it. I guess that the Czech gives you the trouble.

If there's a normalized language that could be considered as a source for all three Slavic language branches, it would be staroslověnština (Old Church Slavonic), although it is inspired most by the South Slavic branch it was codified in the time when the Slavic languages were not that divided yet and the language was more or less intelligible to all Slavs. It is bit difficult to show it now, because of the script, as it used the Glagolitic and Cyrillic script, so if latinized the texts are transliterated.

How did it sound, Proglas, probably the first Slavic written poem.


https://wikisource.org/wiki/Proglas%D1%8A
Quote:
transliterated:
Proglasъ jesmь svętu jevanьgelьju:
Jako proroci prorekli sǫtъ prěžde,
Christъ grędetъ sъbьratъ językъ,
Světъ bo jestъ vьsemu miru semu.
Se sъbystъ sę vъ sedmyi věkъ sь.

Rěšę bo oni: slěpii prozьrętъ,
glusi slyšętъ slovo bukъvьnoje.
Boga že ubo poznati dostoitъ.
Togo že radi slyšite, Slověne, si:
Darъ bo jestъ otъ Boga sь danъ,

A wooden bridge collapses with a truck on it. Is it filmed in Brazil?
