  1. Are there things from your first language that you you miss when using different language(s)? When I speak English (or any other language) I miss idioms. Yeah, I can learn then, but I'll never be able to use them as precise and fluent as a native speaker. Also I miss genders in English, it's handy on the internet to hide your identity, but it's a bit uncomfortable for me, I really got used to that I can see who I'm talking to immediately
  2. so which languages do you speak? me english, slovenian (i'm from slovenia) and croatian.
  3. For me, it's Celtic languages. The words are difficult to pronounce.
  4. Idea: Let's make a place where we can exchange languages I teach you mine, you teach me yours To make it even more simple and fun, I already made some effort to prepare a bunch of pictures for you that you can use as an educational device Just take one of the pictures below and replace my texts with ones in your language, then post them here so that other people could learn your language. (I intentionally used solid colour backgrounds under those texts so that you could simply use a colour picker and paint the same colour over my texts, then replace it with your texts easily.) My hope is that after a while this thread will become a great learning place for people (and ponies) who want to learn languages :> Let's start with something simple, yet useful: colours. Why colours? Because they can be later connected with nouns to describe them, and that way you will be able to learn how to make the simplest grammatical construct in every language: noun phrases. (This will probably be in the next part.) Colours are one of the most primitive mechanism that allows us to distinguish objects from each other (e.g. apples from an apple tree), and their set is usually limited (unless you're a girl and you know millions of colours :J but let's save that level of complexity for later ). I can't provide you the audio, so under each image I also posted the texts as plain text that you can copy into your favourite text-to-speech software for that particular language (e.g. you can use Google Translate – they have audio samples for some languages; or you can use an online dictionary – those have audio samples sometimes as well; or Wiktionary). OK, that being said, let's now learn some colours with Rainbow Dash – the most colourful pony in Equestria Colours in Spanish: (rojo, naranja, amarillo, verde, azul, morado, blanco, gris, negro, marrón, rosa, los colores) Colours in Mandarin Chinese: (红色,橙色,黄色,绿色,蓝色,紫色,白色,灰色,黑色,咖啡色,粉红色,色) Colours in Polish: (czerwony, pomarańczowy, żółty, zielony, niebieski, fioletowy, biały, szary, czarny, brązowy, różowy, kolory) Also, if anyone is interested in becoming "language pen pals" with me, feel free to hit my mailbox (Although I prefer talking in this thread, because that way other people could benefit from that as well.) I also sometimes appear in Pony.Town as TeachMeUrLanguage and talk with ponies there. Or you can go to my Discord room specially made for language exchanges You can also share your ideas about what would you like to see next in this thread, what stuff you would like to learn, what languages you are interested in, etc. I'll add them to the poll above.
  5. What languages do you know or learn except English and why are you learning them? I know French and I'm learning Russian and German. I'm learning Russian because a lot of people speak it and I also like the culture, food, language, music, etc. of Russia. As for German I just like the language and it's also a popular language. I also like learning new languages it's very interesting and fun to me.
  6. Would you rather see the movie 1 month before the movie comes out but have to watch it with everything in "African clicking" (it's a language) with 1 1/2 second delayed subtitles? Or just wait. ?????????????????? tough choice.
  7. Hello everyone, I need help of all of you.

  8. So I'm currently planning out a fanfic, and I got to thinking about the various pun-tastic names that ponies have for their cities, such as Las Pegasus, Canterlot, Manehattan, etc. Now the fandom has come up with names of their own for more distant lands, like Stalliongrad, Neighpon or Japony, and such. That got me to thinking about endonyms, which is basically what a country's name is in that country's own language. For example Germany isn't Germany in German (lol), it's Deutschland. Japan isn't Japan, it's Nihon, China is Zhongguo, and Korea is Hangook. So I was wondering if any bilinguals here could suggest names for cities and countries in their native language as well as any words in the corresponding language that pertain to horses. The Chinese and Japanese word for horse is "ma", the French word for mane is "crinière". Things like that. I'm a bit of a language buff, so I wanted just that tiny little extra attention to detail of having countries with punny names that work in their own languages, rather than just having be some sort of English pun. So if people could just list a bunch of words in different languages, good ones being gallop, hoof, mane, pony, horse, saddle, horseshoe, neigh, whinny, etc, etc, along with some notable cities. Fruit and vegetable-based puns could work as well, considering we got Appleoosa.
  9. Apparantly, English has a very developed vocabulary for horses. We've got different words for all the horse parts, horse things, and horse movements. So I was wondering what other languages have in the way of equine-specific vocabulary, and if they are used in the dubs of the show much? When I went to Europe, I got a horse riding lesson in Slovakia. My Czech is good enough to be compatible with Slovak, but when the instructor got out the technical terms, I was lost and had to work off of context. Apparently, they have words for horse-left and horse-right, like starboard and port on a ship. It would be a shame to be born into a language without a ready suppy of horse puns.
  10. There are many threads around here in which we can embrace our ethnic backgrounds, culture, and show love (or indifference) towards the countries in which we live. There are also quite a number of threads dedicated to sharing our love of languages, or appreciation for our own. This idea came to my mind just an hour ago. I think it would be amazing if we can determine (via poll) the approximate amount of foreign members on this forum and some of the most common languages that they speak natively. As for what we can post on here, just simply share what language you speak natively and why you love it You can also post about why you don't like it. Give both pros and cons if you want
  11. So, has anyone ever taken the time to check out the show in different languages? It's kind of fun seeing that sometimes, some of the songs sound better than in English. At the same time, some places, like Canada, actually censored many things, like a good bit of the 'Party of One' dialogue during Pinkie's breakdown. Here's some examples. The italian version of the opening: Or Flutterguy in multiple languages! (Watch out for french Flutterguy. Sexy voice.)
  12. im just starting this topic to see what some of you bronies out there think of mlp:fim in different languages the swedish is not that good I mean I like it but it could have been better heres a clip with the swedish voices
  13. I know that FIM has only had 1 theme, (unless there is a super secret hidden one somewhere... ;p.) but I have learned about the opening themes for MLP in two other languages, and the whole opening music and everything is entirely different in both compared to the English one. Anyways, rambling aside, after listening to some of these other themes, I oddly enough found them pretty good. And so I wanted to see what everyone else's favorite opening themes were, and why. I have personally quite liked the Italian version, I don't know why really, I guess I just think the singer has a really awesome singing voice, even if I can't understand the majority of what is said. (And honestly when literally translated it isn't quite as cool anyways in my opinion). The Japanese one is pretty cool too, but idk, I just personally am not a huge fan of it. The English version is cool too,(The extended version is better than just the part normally played.) but the fact i've heard it so much, plus just I think liking the Italian version better makes it not come off as anything amazing. But now that i've given my lengthy opinionated explanations, I want to get to the purpose of this thread, and figure out which theme you like the most! I'm only going to include the 3 I am aware of, since i don't know of any others, if there are other themes, then feel free to inform me, and I'll add them(assuming they aren't just translations to whatever language from English.) Oh and I'll post the 3 theme's, so people can more easily compare. Italian Japanese English Looking forward to hearing what y'all have to say!
  14. Here we can talk about languages, learning them, and the wealth of information that's soon to come in this post.

  15. i'm pretty sure that not everybody on mlpf is fully english speaking, so why don't we have an international board? people from all over the world can make threads in the board so that people who are fluent in certain languages/have that languages' country as their background can talk with people fromthat same place. what do you think?
