well, i am one of those who love speaking it plus i like to help other ppl improve their english as not everyone has the chance to practise it often unless u are married to an english guy (like me^^) ...

so that's y i dont think this thread is stupid or something. maybe ur english is perfect so u don't need it but other ppl here may need it (e. g. for their homework) ....

if u dont like the topic, just ignore it. u dont need to join any discussion in here Smily "smilesmile"

I guess it's never useless to try to converse in another language. After all, globalisation is everywhere and nowadays it's important to be able to speak English. Even in Germany it gets more and more important to companies that their employees in certain areas speak English. I can't understand how some people just don't think it necessary to speak other languages.

I always disliked tourists going abroad to eg. Spain, Denmark etc and expecting people there to speak German. Besides English I can converse a bit in Spanish and French and for me it is obvious that I will try to speak French when in France or Spanish when in Spain. Only if I really don't know how to say things in those languages I try my luck with English but I would never expect anybody to speak German.

So I think it's great that some people in this forum really want to practice and improve their English Smily "top"

hehe, when i read "hook up" u kinda shocked me Smily "lach". I hope u know the other meaning of this expression ;). As everybody knows slang maybe u shud use "agree with" ... then nobody gets naughty or weird thoughts Smily "smilesmile" ....

Of course, I know the other meaning of it. Sorry, about that. I actually thought you know what I mean. My American boyfriend always says "hook up" - don't know really if it is slang or whatever. But I also used it before I met him.

Hehe, well, before u used it in this way, i only knew the naughty meaning. because me fiance keeps on using it only in this context. but well, maybe because he is british^^. i have never heard of the other meaning. well, everyday is a new day for learning something else Smily "smilesmile" ...

I do not know how to explain it really. I think there is not another meaning for "hook up" except the naughty one. But maybe young people use it there. I am really clueless.

Beitrag #1.660 - erstellt: 06. August 2009
As far as I remember the expression "hook up" has a quite innocent meaning as well. I heard it several times while I was living in the UK, meaning that people want to meet up to talk or do something together. When I read this expression in a sentence I guess it's not difficult to understand, in which sense it is used and honestly, I never heard it in any other meaning than meeting up...

I don't know. I just asked my boyfriend and he told me, that it has got a naughty meaning and another. The other meaning was meeting up with somebody. But he said it can be also used if you want to say, that you're in favor of somebody or you agree with somebody.

Weird, but don't know.

Hey. English is my main language so ask if you have any questions.

@Pasanti93/Djarmila/Phuul "hook up" is american english. I would use "meet up" or "get together" if you are talking about friends. For the romantic meaning there are lots of other options Smily "wink"

Hello everybody.

How are you?
I have a question to you...
I really want to practise my english a little bit more (i think my english is not the best. I know some people, who are huge better as me), so I search a person who want´s to have english-speaking-contact with me. (But I mean it personal. Maybe the person have icq or we can speak with pn? Smily "smilesmile" )
I think, I can practise my english good with these way. When someone is interesting, please write me a pn Smily "zwinker"

See you, bollyrani

@Derya: What do you mean with "15 points"? Smily "smile"


15 points is the same like A[+] (1[+]).... This points-system is starting from year 12 at grammar school. 15 points is the highest number u can score.

15 = 1+
14 = 1
13 = 1-
12 = 2+
usw.

I really loved english but i never scored 15 points. Most of the time it was like 12, 13. Only in my oral exam i scored 14 points by talking about guantanamo and iraq. i still dont know why this examiner asked me these stupid questions ...

Scoring 15 points in english is almost impossible. I am married to a british soldier, we are talking english whole day and still i make sooooo many mistakes. it will always happen unless u have been living in an english speaking country for many years. thats the only way to learn it perfectly. Best way during school time is to do an exchange for 1 year. After returning frm e. g. USA u will b able to speak and write english fluently.

declaration? I guess u mean explanation Smily "smilesmile" ...

declaration also means "erklärung" but not in this context. Just have a look at its meaning by checking the content of e. g. a "declaration of independence" Smily "smile" ... I think that'll help to see the difference Smily "smile" .

Hello everybody. Smily "winke"

I translate a english songtext for myself and I have a problem with one sentence. In my opinion its maybe a anecdote or something like that, so I have big problems to understand this sentence well. And with my translator I get a terrible german for this sentence.
Maybe anyone have a good german translation for this, please? Smily "smile"

Zitat von bollyrani1992:

It is indeed quite difficult to translate. It would help if you could provide the name of the song and the singer (group). I need to have a look at the entire songtext in order to find out a possible meaning.

I have already something in mind but I have to make sure that I am right Smily "smilesmile"

Sometimes it is essential to have a look at something on the whole.

Beitrag #1.688 - erstellt: 22. März 2010
Of course, I can show you the whole songtext. At first, I would like to thank you, that you have a look about this. Smily "smilesmile"
Do you need really the songtext and the singer? The singer is a little bit difficult to find Smily "tutmirleid"
But here is now the songtext (for the moment):

From far away, let your eyes shine; those who have awakened are still waiting.
Seduce the ramparts of the night in the cast-off pile of skins left by things that now live elsewhere.

(without an exit) if you intend to survive the impact
(to the point where you fall apart) enrapture the deceits

You who have been reborn, color your eyes without smiling alone.
Even if the world you've longed for has suddenly burned to ash, in some miracle we could still brush into each other.

(Hold me gently in order to break me)

Be exposed in a state of purity like a flower whose petals have fallen.
You're just beginning to notice the days are shining jewels cupped in your hand.

(A cold hand) gathers up the shed thorns, so
(A banked flame) continues to smolder

Let's depict the vividly dancing thoughts found in that place of light that is unreachable even now.
Don't fear the passage of time, so that words of guidance won't completely spill out and flow away.

(And there's no way out) (I'm falling further down)

To the reincarnation of you, I say color your eyes without smiling alone.
Even if the world you've longed for has suddenly burned to ash, the miracle could still happen to come again.

Let's depict the vividly dancing thoughts found in that place of light that is unreachable even now.
Don't fear the passage of time, so that words of guidance won't completely spill out and flow away.

(Hold me gently, always catch me, more and more, in order to break my heart)


You see, this difficult sentence is near the begining, so I have only translate the first line:

"Lasse deine Augen von weitem scheinen
Diejenigen, die erwacht sind, warten noch."

I know, its a little bit "stümperhaft" but I want recorected the text, when I have the whole text in german translation Smily "smilesmile"
Oh, and the begining of the 2nd line calls "Verführe die Festungswälle der Nacht". So I translated it. Maybe it is wrong, I don´t know. Smily "silberblick"

Beitrag #1.690 - erstellt: 22. März 2010
Oh, it's not really the words which are the problem. It's all those metaphors used. I was never any good in interpreting metaphors in poems so even though I speak English quite well I have no idea what this song is about. Guess you need some artistic person with a good knowledge of English Smily "smilesmile"

@bollyrani
Is that... some Metal-ish song? I'd assume so judging by the quite *erm* weird content.

If I were to analyse those lyrics in a class-test, I'd follow this trail of thought:
IMO it could be about either a) a beloved person or b) some "higher" being (which would be the more "mysterious" option...an evidence for that could be the fact the addressee is reborn).
The lyrical I addresses that person in order to encourage him / her to "awake from the death" and always remain hopeful, in terms of "although everything sucks right now, it'll be alright" , because he / she is needed by the lyrical I ("Hold me gently, always catch me...")

back to the line you've asked about:

From far away, let your eyes shine; those who have awakened are still waiting.
(your translation here sounds just fine)
Seduce the ramparts of the night in the cast-off pile of skins left by things that now live elsewhere
"seducing" could be meant in a way of "overcome the obstacles of night", the "night" being a metaphor for a death or a place where death are kept ...something like "fight to be able to return from the death / be reborn"
the "cast-off pile of skins" would symbolize the other death bodies, and the "things that now live elsewhere" their souls

so: "Überwinde den Wall der Nacht im verstoßenen Haufen an Häuten, verlassen von dem, was jetzt woanders weilt"

okay, you might think I'm a freak for such an approach, but that'd be my idea. My English and German teachers seem to be rather fond of my analyses Smily "smilesmile"
