english wednesday

gorgeous1

Goooood Morning. Today is the first english wednesday for me and Nadini. We’ll try talking english to each other for the whole day to refresh her english vocabulary and improve my english gobbledygook. Furthermore this is a great chance to use my favourite-word all day long: GORGEOUS!

Please try to comment in english to increase the … uhm… fun.

  1. Gorgeous? Ist das lateinisch und eine U-Deklination:

    Gorgeous
    Gorgeous
    Gorgeoui
    Gorgeoum
    Gorgeou

    Gorgeous
    Gorgeouum
    Gorgeoibus
    Gorgeous
    Gorgeoibus

    ?

  2. i think you listened to often to keynotes of steve jobs …..

    although you favourite word would then be “awesome”

  3. Brilliant, marvellous, outstanding. You made my da a little bit more sunny. Thank you for your strip.

  4. My favourite english words are craptacular and craptastic :D

    They have nothing to do with this blog ;)

  5. Gorgeous is, well, gorgeous. Awesome is also nice, but I relate it to those „Bill & Ted“-Movies.

    Actually in the english language I really like the contraries:

    embarrasing
    disgusting
    disturbing
    pathetic

    they make bad things sound poetic

  6. I like it here!
    Gorgeous is, indeed, a very lovely word to start an english day with. It´s so uncluttered and serene…
    No wait, that was the iMac…
    Anyway, have nice day!

    Maybe, at the end of this day you will lean back in your arm chair, smoke a fine cigar, take sip of old whiskey and wonder why you didn’t invent the “english wednesday” a little bit earlier.

    “You like some crackers to your cheese, Gromit”

  7. Have you switched all of the Beetlebum GUI (I mean things like “Leave a Comment”) to English or was it English all the time? I really don’t see these things anymore.

  8. There are some nice translations from germany as well…

    Like this: “You are on the wood way” ;)

    Nice work for the comic today. Great.

    Cheers, murphy

  9. Maybe you should also try to watch some tv series in english. for example, check out “The IT Crowd”. ok, it’s just for nerds, but its working aaaaand its fun.

  10. So, let’s throw around some english words:
    rucksack
    kindergarten
    zeitgeist
    blitzkrieg
    schadenfreude

    Okay, this is real fun!
    Gorgeous!

  12. If you look for a nice word on next wednesday I would definitly go for tremendous. You can always add this word in any phrase, and since the word sounds so serious, everybody will look up to you and nod.

  13. Друг Джоджо, мой не является по-английски лучше всего, когда меня последний однажды сотрудник SUN на реагировал по-английски, я говорил мой русский язык лучше и немедленно я должен был говорить по-русски

  14. สวัสดีคะ!

    มหาวิทยาลัยเทคโนโลยีพระจอมเกล้าธนบุรี(มจธ.)เป็นมหาวิทยาลัยของรัฐใน
    ระบบราชการแห่งแรกแห่งเดียวที่เปลี่ยนสภาพมาเป็นมหาวิทยาลัยในกำกับรัฐบาล
    (ประกาศในราชกิจจานุเบกษาเมื่อ 6 มีนาคม 2541) บทความนี้ถูกเขียนขึ้นเพื่อ
    บันทึกว่าการกำหนดทิศทางการเปลี่ยนมจธ.เป็นมหาวิทยาลัยในกำกับรัฐบาลเกิดขึ้น
    เกือบสองทศวรรษก่อนการเปลี่ยนแปลง การเปลี่ยนแปลงครั้งนี้เป็นความต้องการของ
    ผู้ทำงานในมหาวิทยาลัย ที่ประสงค์จะสร้างมหาวิทยาลัยของไทยให้เป็นมหาวิทยาลัย
    ชั้นนำของโลก เป็นการเปลี่ยนแปลงที่มีพลังขับเคลื่อนจากภายในไม่ใช่การบังคับ
    จากภายนอก

    (This refers to “Thai Tuesday” since I lived half a year over there – but actually I don’t know, what those meaningful words say…)

  15. Good afternoon. My name ist Tim. I am from Münster. Kevin has had an accident with his bike. Sarah is Kevins girlfriend!

  16. Great idea! Nice looking comic, but this time a had some fun when reading the comments too. :-D

    My fav on word senselessness:
    I war my go stop over meadows.
    (Ich krieg mein Gehalt überwiesen)

  17. Malte:
    รเยนสภาพมาเป็นมหาวิทยาลัยในกำกับรัฐบาลประกาศในราชกิจจามีนาคม มีนาคม มีนาคม

    (Du hast aus einem nicht wirklich netten Text zitiert). Es gibt Länder auf der Erde, da wird einem dafür mindestens ein Körperteil abgeschnitten … ;-)

  18. Uhm..
    Gorgeous is only a fine way to say “FUCKING GREAT!”

    Peut-etre demain on peut parler francais, toute la journée?
    :D

    Hessisch is auch ned schleschd!

  19. @Jojo and Nad1n1
    We had the same idea of an “English Wednesday” at work. But since no native speaker belonged to the club it was more or less useless since one German speaking false English to another German doesn’t really help. But I wish you luck with your goals.

    @Thommi (#36):
    Another nice word: Doppelgänger (found in the latest book written by J.K. Rowling)

  20. That’s such a great idea! That means to me fun ^_^

    @Thommi and kenyoblue
    also adding: poltergeist
    (yesterday I found Doppelgänger at HP, too ;))

  21. @Titania Carthaga
    I’m just wondering why several independent people use Wednesday as the English speaking day.

  22. Ui, that´s very nice and interesting. I love english.
    I strongly recommend to watch some movies without the fuckin` “Synchronisation” today.
    Make it a comedy with Ben Stiller like “Meet the Parents” or something.
    The English is not too difficult and you laugh your ass off!
    :)
    Anyway, have fun.
    And for the experts: make it an english week!
    ;)

  23. Tried that with my wife as well, but since she’s rather resistant to English, she simply stopped talking to me on those days.

    Georgeous! :D

  24. but why does n. need to practice her english after having read harry potter? she should be quite good after that. well, anyway, have fun and try not to mess up too much.

  25. @kenyoblue & JenJen: Oh, that’s so cool! Now the whole english-speaking world knows “ä”. So I can travel the world without trouble in spelling my lastname. Just saying: “No, it’s an “ä” like in Doppelgänger.” Thanks to that Potter-guy!

  26. @chnuebli: she’s saying “thats hot!”…i’ve hearded.. ;)
    @jojo: are you also reading the new potter in original language?

  27. Reminds me of something…

    “It’s gonna be legen… – wait for it – DARY!”

    ;)

    Awesome > Gorgeous

  28. Great way to celebrate my straight A for my exam on British Contemporary Literary Criticism

    (no. 76: faster THAN before)

  29. Oh my f*cking god!!!
    Your English hurts… “the whole day”??? :O
    Ever heard of “all day long”? … or heard of syntax? :D

    Smirf! :D
    Now I remember why you stopped doing your blog in English…

    (Should I translate my comment?… Just to get sure you understood what I said… :P)

    Stinky! *g*

  30. Mmmm….. my recent post has been eaten by the spam engine, I guess. Well, let’s try another one.

    Just looking forward to more posts in English. In the beginning I thought about a bi-lingual blog but because I am lazy, it never took off.

    See ya!

  31. What a tremendous idea. I’d suggest you to mountainous words like towering, stupendous or cute.
    And in the occasion of spending your wednesdays with having picknicks, be cautious of the Beeren!

  32. And now for something completely different :-)
    Fist post of mine here, your skills and humor are amazing. Way to go!

  33. My girlfriend and I are talking english all the time as well. Don’t exacly know why, but it’s kind of fun :)

    Stephsn

  34. I’m using the online-service ‘OWAD’ (One Word-a-day) to improve my English.

    Now I am looking forward to learn the word ‘gobbledygook’.
    Hope, Paul Smith doesn’t keep me waiting too long ;)

  35. der link hat nicht geklappt, aber wen es interessiert, kann ja nach ‘OWAD’ suchen…
    (Das war deutsch, – thank god it’s friday ;))

  36. Very nice try. I simply moved to the Netherlands – perfect country for gaining foreign country experiences. Everybody speaks English here. And if you don’t understand it, they translate it for you to German. And if you want, they teach you Dutch as well.
