    Um, hello?

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Leah Woods, May 27, 2008.

    Um, hello to everyone! I’m new to this forum. I found some good advices here, and I decided to join.
    My first language isn't English, so I'm sorry for any mistakes I’m going to make.
    I accidentally stumbled to this forum, and I’m glad that happened.

    I really don't know what to say. Once again hi!

    Hello Leah, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Review Room, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well, and be sure to read through the forum rules, too, to avoid any misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Respect for one another is our principal mandate.

    As for the Review Room, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize reviewing as a critical writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. The Review Room forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Review Room forum). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Hi, Leah!
    It's a pleasure to meet you. English is my joint first language. :)
    What's your first language?
    Anyhow, welcome to WF!

    Bosnia and Herzegovina is in Europe, on Balkans peninsula. It's bordered by Croatia and Serbia and Montenegro. I don't know if it helps much

    Really? Cool.

    Thanks for welcome, once again.

    Yeah it's fairly close. I'm not fond of German at all, although I'll have to learn it at school.

    I can speak a little French. I can speak Welsh and English fluently. I can't speak Bosnian yet, but I'm working on it!

    That's cool.
    You're going to learn Bosnian! That's great.
    Just one warning, it's not easy language to learn, but I hope you'll learn it. :)
