Just want to say hello

Postby Winkchen » Fri Sep 28, 2007 6:45 pm

Hi guys!! :hi
My name is krissi and I just registered
I hope, I don`t do anything wrong in opening this thread, if I do, I`m really sorry
I just wanted to say hello, I am in another forum, where most user open a thread, when they are new, so I though, I do it here, too...
I wanted to join this forum, because I saw, you had something about babylon 5 and I really love babylon 5, it`s such a great series!!
And in germany nobody knows it, that`s sooo sad :?
As I said, I`m from germany, so sorry if I understand anything wrong or just say sentences in wrong grammar
I hope, we will have much fun!

There's a six hour difference between my current timezone (CST) and the one London uses. I assume it'd be similar for Germany, except one hour later. eg. at 10:45am, it'd be seven hours earlier over here, or 3:45am.

Than it`s like the time in Las Vegas, right?
I was in Vegas a few weeks ago, I spend my holidays on the west coast, 4 weeks.

I have again a question (yes, yes, I have many many questions :lol )
Is there a thread, were you can just talk with other users? I searched one, but I didn`t find anything..

Ja, Drazo sprecht Deutsch. Also mir. Pardon the inaccuracies, for it's been a year since I spoke any German.

Well, I speak englisch every day and I love watching films in englisch, they`re far better than in german!

I`m surprised, that you speak german, because germany is such a small country..
Do you learn it in school in amerika?

Most high schools in America teach Spanish, French, and German for foreign language credits. Usually, we have to earn two credits for each language. The high school I was at in Florida also taught Latin and Japanese. O.o

On my school you can learn french, englisch, latin and spanish in class 11..
I now learn englisch, french and just started with latin...
Japanese sounds interesting, a friend of mine learns it.

Could you explain me what are "credits"?

Basically, a credit is what you get from successfully completing a class. In high school (and universities) you have to have a certain number of credits to graduate. And you also need certain amounts of specific types of credits. For example, at my old high school, to graduate and be eligible to get into a university, we needed four math credits, three science credits, three social science credits, four english credits, two foreign language credits, and a huge amount of electives. In college, you get more than one credit for each class, so you need about 136 credits to graduate (at least for Arizona State University).
