Re: Alisa's Wonderland wonderful off-topic thread

yes,pousseur,I guess (since push = pousser) ou quelqu'un/un joueur qui pousse la balle

quelqu'un qui frappe sans intelligence is good translation too,I think

I'm now curious to know if someone follows ATP or visits men's tennis forum if these expressions are used there too or only for the girls.I don't follow much ATP except at slams,I have to admit.

Everyone

I don't know it took me so long to see this thread

My name is Martin and I'm from Australia. I've been following Alisa since 2004 (I think).

I don't think brainless-ballbasher is used that much to describe men's tennis because it tends to be a favourite expression of the ATP fans who look down their noses at the WTA but I have seen it used a few times on menstennisforum to describe some players e.g. Tsonga. I think people refer to moonballers more but maybe there's a derogatory term for ATP serve-only players

I'm through with Indian Wells - couldn't care less who wins Hopefully Peschke/Srebotnik can win the doubles If I'm honest, I always find events like Indian Wells a bit boring because they never really live up to their billing in terms of the top seeds and I'm not a huge fan of hard-courts. I prefer clay and grass (and indoor hard like Paris Indoors because it's such a fast surface).

Hi Veronika!

I've always wanted to study languages but I struggled when I was in high school with Spanish so much that I don't know if I have the brain for learning them. I really, really want to try and learn Italian but I'm so scared I won't be able to grasp it. I wish they had started us out with foriegn languages when I was in elementary school, I think it would be easier to grasp when I was younger.

Re: Alisa's Wonderland wonderful off-topic thread

I agree! In the UK, we start learning languages at the age of 11-12 and I think we should start earlier. I always feel really guilty because Brits are really lazy when it comes to languages. I can speak French quite well but I would love to learn a third.

On a similar topic, how many languages does Alisa speak? English, Russian, Italian...any others?

That's about the age we learn them here in the States too (at least I did) and we only had the choice of Spanish until high school where I only had the choice between Spanish, French, and Sign Language. I wish they offered more but I went to a really small high school.

Re: Alisa's Wonderland wonderful off-topic thread

I had to take one semester of Italian and one semester of Chinese when I was 13, then I could choose to continue studying one of them, or study something else.

I continued studying Chinese for a few years, but I had to quit after my first year at university because my university wouldn't allow me to study it as part of the course that I was taking .

Re: Alisa's Wonderland wonderful off-topic thread

Hi!

About languages, my first language was Sign Language, then Dutch. Now I talk mostly dutch, cause I dont need sign at my college, work placement, w/ my parents and w/ my friends.. I dont have many deaf friends, basically noone..

When I was eleven I learned English, but it was mostly basic. I got the chance to learn more english when Internet came by..
Thanks to this very forum I can communicate in English, isn't it wonderful?
And when I was 14 I got German for two years.. A shitty language to learn, for me anyway.. Could be thanks to the teacher..

Is it hard to learn sign language?

German

It was my mother's first language (although she was born in Australia), but she never taught it to me

I wish that I was fluent in another language, but I can only manage to have a basic understanding of a few different languages

It was not hard for me at all, because its my mother tongue.. same as Dutch..

And globally it's not hard to learn sign, you just has to be flexible
