Frowner

My grandma is Portuguese, now she lives in Portugal but when she was young she immigrated to France and had my mother here. My mom has the two nationalities (French and Portuguese), speaks the two languages but she has never taught me how to speak Portuguese. I don't understand why.

One day I went to Portugal to meet my family but we couldn't talk to each other. Concerning my grandma, even if she speaks French I would love to speak Portuguese with her. I don't know if it will happen.. Bah.

Anyway, Welcome to the stix everyone! Smiler

kaoir: It's not too late, you can still learn! Maybe you can ask your mom to teach you a phrase in Portuguese everyday and if you go to visit your family in Portugal again, you'll be able to speak a little with them. And listening to portuguese music would be helpful too. Wink The only person to recommend that comes to mind at the moment is Bebel Gilberto but I'm sure there's a lot more good Portuguese music out there. Now I'm curious....

sweetness in my lungs: No, I never saw Journeyman but i read the plot, it sounds like it would have been interesting. I saw this show called 'Awake' that was pretty good but got cancelled after the first season. It was about a detective that lived in two different realities and didn't know which one was real. In one his wife was alive and in the other his son was alive so he didn't want to know which was the real reality.

Btw: I use this username often and never try out "Snowball", I prefer it with the 13.

Snowball13: Red Face oh, pardon me, my mistake. At first I had called you "snowball" instead of "snowball13". Sometimes with usernames I don't know if the number is important.

gah, sorry for going so off-topic with just replying to people. I should fill this out too...I don't know why i procrastinate.

But anyway welcome to the stix, everyone who is new!
