Saying hello
« on: November 01, 2017, 08:34:47 pm »
Hi there,

Well, I'd like to introduce myself... My name is Vicente, I'm from Spain and I've just discovered this forum. It seems really interesting! I can manage in English, but I know I can improve a lot, and I'd like to practise here my reading and writing, so feel free of correcting me (but don't be too harsh!    ;D)
I'm interested in Great Britain and Ireland History and Culture, so I think I'll give a look around and read a little bit.

Thanks!

¡Hola Vicente!

Welcome to the group!

We are a varied team, from all over the world. I was born in the USA, but have lived in England for 20 years. Therefore, I cannot always tell the difference between something that is American English or British English. I speak French, Spanish, some Italian, and a little German. I lived for a summer in Salamanca and teach a small group of adults Spanish one evening a week as a sort of "hobby" as my main job is a technical writer.

Saludos,
Dave

Hello Vicente

Sorry not to have responded before - almost two months! I have very little free time and although I love this forum and always find something interesting to read or to help with, I am rarely involved.

I was in Salamanca in the summer of 1980.

Hasta pronto,
David
