I think bandabou is great.
I know English isn't his first or most comfortable language.
He knows a lot of stuff and is good enough to make people angry with every post he posts.

I think most of the Belgian posters on the board are great. I can't believe English isn't their first language.

The poster who amuses me most with their English is AlexSydney. No offense but I always enjoys reading what he has to say.

I don't know about the others but personally, my written english is a lot better than my spoken english Not that my spoken english is horrible or anything but sometimes I might not know the right word or something like that but when I write I can have a little more thinking time without everybody knowing that I'm at a loss for words

I'm better at speaking than writing.
When I speak, I feel as if I wouldn't need to give a crap about my grammar or vocablary cuz everything goes so fast and having little time to think and construct sentences really makes me speak naturally without realizin I'm speaking a foreign language.
Writing involves so much thinking process and requires a lot of work. spelling words correctly, using correct tense etc.

Anyways, I don't know everybody on the board but as far as I know, The Boiled Egg is the best. He's Russian right?

....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Other way around with me, when I speak english, it doesn't come out as it sounds in my head. all of a sudden I'm a retard that can't pronounce anything or build a descent sentence. writing just flows out me without thinking much. but then again, I'm a paper-girl in any language...

i dont know. i guess it would depend on how long hes been living here and his age, as its easy to learn a language when youre younger. his english is better than most americans thou. ys is so mysterious...
