• Does anyone speak Spanish? Tell me what my friend might have been saying?

    This happened about 7 years ago but it’s been driving me crazy. The basics of the story are: we were at school in the bathroom. I’m Natalie and I was with my two friends, Lesley and Giselle. I spoke pretty much no Spanish at all. Lesley and Giselle were both Mexican, fluent in Spanish and that’s what they would speak most of the time, although they also could speak English. It was first grade and after an assembly we went to use the bathroom. Lesley went into a bathroom stall, shut the door and immediately came out crying. She hugged Giselle and was crying something about “Natalie” and “pintuda” or “pintura” or something. Next thing I know Giselle is saying “How could you do that, Natalie?!” I did nothing, I was just standing there when she went into the stall so I was completely confused. Does anyone speak Spanish and could you tell me what Lesley might have been saying to Giselle?

  • If a person picks up a language faster than others, does that mean they’re better than others?

    Best answer: The notion that some people are better than others, over all, is silly.

    So, the answer, is "no", of course.

    I am very good at learning languages and good in math, but I am terrible at dealing with people. My sister is great at dealing people, horrible in math, and although she has not learned a single language, I imagine she would do well, since she picked up enough to communicate a few basic things while traveling in Europe, simply by interacting with people.

    Some people who picked up another language fast are racists. That's a very bad trait. Others are not.

    You can't measure a person's worth or superiority, so it's a worthless concept. Thinking in those terms is a form of prejudice.

  • Do the Quebecois Speak Substandard French?

    Best answer: As a native French person and although Quebecois have a strong accent and different expressions and words, we understand them. Either we live in Paris or in the south / est / west of France. No matter, since it's the same French. We also find their accent somewhat funny, but I bet they find ours funny as... show more

  • Does this phrase natural in English?

    Best answer: Note: "Does this sentence seem natural in English?"

    "Wilted" normally applies to plants which look sad because they have suffered during a long hot summer when they have not been watered. Thus "wilted" does not apply to the appearance of plants during winter.
