Are you struggling to understand Wealthy Affiliate because your mother tongue is not English?

I'd like to Pay It Forward to you and offer my assistance to help you understand English better and this will in turn help you progress and understand Wealthy Affiliate better.

My flare for languages is a work in progress, and no, I cannot speak all of them, however, there are few that I can speak and understand fluently. Others I just understand the basics and listen hard to try and make out the words and challenge myself to figure out what is being said to see if I can understand it before I go to Google Translate! :-)

So, if you are having difficulty and are frustrated, send me a message, or comment below and I'll do my best to help you according to my ability!

If you like this post, please remember to click on the green Like This button, and to earn more in WA, click on the blue Facebook Like button at the top of the page! Look forward to hearing from you soon! :-)

UPDATE!

14 July 2015

Danish.....
Ahhhh. You fortunate people.
I wish i could speah Danish. I could read it .
I can even think in German and French. But ... i need more vocabulary.



Did you know... All the Nordic/Germanic Languages , including English , have their roots in Old Norse??!

Take a look at old High German and Old (ORIGINAL FORM OF ENGLISH) , and see the cognates, the stark similarities.

ICELAND, that is home to many original Vikings, (Old Norse speakers), still has a 85% intact form of Old norse.

Modern-Day English looks like it is because of the social and "Monarchial goings-on" between Anglo land and Hilderfonce French of France, (languages in contact ).. many years leading up to the 1066 batles in England.

Look at Beowulf... the original form of the language spoken by the PEOPLE in tat land called England today. Then shifting away from its Germanic roots to what was used in Chauser's time . It began to look Like a semi french Language. That 14th Century Vowel shift really moved things around.

now look at English today????
Wow!!!

I make you a prediction.

In southern California , where I reside...
Give it 800 years... english here will look like a English-spanish morph.

Folks In England who frequebt the French Coastline, English will morph a bit, or remain the same as it is now.

Where ever there any Two Languages contacting each other, I guarantee, each will borrow words from each other, and. this is how.
For exanple, The English of Beowulf's years became what we call "English " today.

If we Present day English speakers did a Startek move and went back in time say 1200 years and tried to talk to those folks in "Anglo land" <--England, they would not verstehen one word we said.

We are only 5 million people who speak Danish.
Nor have I met other Danish members here, my site is not in Danish. Admittedly, I have considered to start writing in Danish. But one thing at a time. As I said, I think we get a felled Scandinavian languages ​​in the next 4-5 generations

I like your tenacity and eagerness to exercise your language skills. This is what this is all about. If your mother tongue is Dutch, we can always use your help. :-) But I picked up a bit of German and Afrikaans in your writing?... Was that all in fun? :-)

I do speak a little Dutch, but it gets mixed up with my Afrikaans and German.

Question: where can I find the blue Facebook Like button at the top of the page?

TopAchiever Premium
It's on the right hand side just under the icons at the top of the page. Originally my heading was too long, so I had to delete some of it, but now I am looking at it and it's there.

Let me know if you still can't see it.

Thank you so much for your offer to help! Will definitely call on your expertise!

Looking at your screenshot Edu, I'm able to see the FB Button as you described. However, on my old Windows XP desktop screen it's still invisible - see my attached image. But, lucky me, on my Windows 8.1 notebook screen it's visible. So, please note that XP users (still quite a few in my opinion) can't locate your FB Button. Good thing to know!

Thanks a lot,
Desmond

I can see a "mini community" evolving here at WA, those who are kind enough to offer their services to others who's first language is not English but who would really like to join us and build their own site.

Go to it good people!

Isn't there a tool to translate to another language? I've been on websites with offer different language options.
Reply
TopAchiever Premium
Yes, I use Google Translate. There are many others, but that doesn't always have the personal touch that so many others here at WA receive first hand in English. I wanted to be able to offer that personal touch!
Reply
Mark1957 Premium
Haven't used any translate tools but I wouldn't be surprised if stuff comes out sounding robotic....could be wrong though!
Reply
Dinh Premium
that is absolutely true also if you are not familiar with the language you could choose the wrong phrase and offend people!

Let's concentrate on the positive side and make the most of what we have. If you have a better tool, we'll be glad to implement it.

My first language is German but I've lived in England since I got married nearly 45 years ago and my English is fluent. So, if you need any help to help someone whose first language is German, then let me know and I'll try to help. I can spot 'Germanisms' very easily.

I'm better at fixing the English that English speaking people write. Spelling and grammar and all that stuff. :) I have to use Google's translation website for other languages.

Sadly, like a majority of linguistically lazy Britons, English is my only language so thank goodness it is so widely used and accepted ;-)

I'm sure your skills will be in command though so well done for offering your services.

Thank you Mark! I see such a need out there to make those people who's mother tongue is NOT English, just as prosperous in their endeavours at WA as we who's mother tongue is English.

That's a fantastic thing to do, there should be no bar to anybody who wants to come to WA including the fact that their English may not be perfect.
Well done to you!
