    Cool, welcome, foreign input is always good. Also ... not sure learning English from us may be the best idea ... :eusa_whistle:

    (By the way, JK ... sort of)

    If by improve your English, you mean learn how to talk like Americans, this is good place to forget everything you were taught about speaking English well.

    There's theoretical English, and then there's the real language that people actually speak (like American or OZZIE) that only vaguely resembles theoretical English.

    Welcome aboard.

    Viva la France.

    Your English appears to be better than many of the regulars'. Perhaps you can rub off on them and be a good influence.

    Welcome.

    Thanks a lot!

    I don't wanna improve an institutional english, I don't give a d*****
    Just want to learn some very american expressions, words etc... I do think this virtual exchange with you people can only be a positive experience.

    I want to apologize for President Obama for not speaking French while he was in your country.

    I think you may get a better response by applogizing for Bush's two terms.

    Now you have Obama, so you don't have to apologize!
