Foreign Language Exchange
« on: August 14, 2009, 08:57:55 AM »
Since I've noticed that we're a community that know different languages. I thought it might be fun to make a game out of it so we can learn things and have fun at the same time.

It goes like this: I ask a question in a foreign language (translations have to be put in parenthesis for those who cannot understand) and the next poster would have to answer in another language.

English is acceptable if you're blank about it. xD

Example:

I post

Ogenki desu ka?
("How are you" in Japanese/ Nihonggo)

The next person posts:

Mabuti naman!
("I'm ok" in Tagalog/ Filipino)

Anong araw ngayon?
("What day is it?" in Tagalog/Filipino)

And so on and so forth. xDD

Any takers? Here's the first one:

Saan ka nakatira?
("Where do you live?" in Tagalog/ Filipino)
WHO ARE YOU AND WHY ARE YOU READING MY SIGNATURE?! O____________O

Depende sa kausap ko, madalas kasi akong mag-"code-shift" o gumamit ng iba't ibang wika sa isang usapan lalo na kapag nahihirapan akong magpaliwanag... pero pinakamadalas pa rin siguro ang paggamit ko ng Filiipino.
("It depends on who I'm talking to, I usually end up code-shifting or using different languages in a conversation, but I probably still use Filipino the most.") <Filipino>

Ano ang paborito mong pagkain?
