Well, writing here in this thread is not that difficult, and yeah, I do understand you (hopefully I don't write too much crap here)..
But just imagine how hard it has to be writing books in english ;O

Uh, what did I write? Totally not understandable No
I wanted to say that "me speaking and writing english is horrible"... I should read through before posting it.
A book, wow. Do you remember that Shii posted a shortstory in english? In some way it would be cool writing a bigger text in english, would be a good practice... it was hard enough writing some english parts in Lara... maybe I should try again.
Do you read english books? I kinda don't like it, there are just some rare books I read like DG, Harry Potter and Twilight.

Don't worry, my head is used dealing with some bad word-constellations in english, haha.

I tried reading Harry potter once, but Iam no good at reading bigger books in english, so.. I didn't even try again.
Yeah, I remember Shi's short Story or.. wasn't it more like a bigger project? I don't remember that clearly.
I know a lot of german writers from nanowrimo.org who write in english and I think it's admirable. I couldn't do that, probably not..

I love english, too. I most of the time read in english and also listen to english audiobooks, beauce these are unabridged, and not like the german short versions. I love it, to read in english, because then I have the original text. The Anne Rice Novels for example are wonderful in german, but in English, they are just stunning. Also the Stephenie Meyer books. I think in German they are much more childish, and Edward doesn't sound so icky and Bella so pathetic in the Original Versions. So in English, they were much more readable. I read Book 2 in German, so I can compare. Okay, I admit it. I loved Twilight once, but since book 4 and the Movies, the books are ruined for me.

I don't love the books as much as I used to, too. Edward is so whiny in the films and I always have this face before my inner eye, when I read the books. But I can't say that the original books are better, I think they're translated pretty well. Also, SM always used the term "he chuckled" like a hundred times in "New moon", in generel she often repeats some terms and words. Sure, she gets better with every book but now I see, that her style is not that good as Richelle Meads, for example.
I never tried listening to audio books, but I zhink I should try. As I said I watch most of my series in english but I always catch myself in lips reading fpr better understanding. I think just listening would help a lot, I will search Amazon for a few ones^^

I read many other books in English before reading SM's books. She is an easy read, but there are many better authors :)
My favorite books to read in English are Anne Rice' and Laurell K. Hamilton. Also I love Lynn Flewelling :)

I never read a whole book in english. I don't know, for me, literature means the german language. I love german and I don't know, it's like it looses it's magic for me when it's not in german. Almost like translating english Songtext into german, I don't like that either. It just destroyes the texts for me, although sure it's something different if you read the translated book or the original voice of the author...
I just wanna make sure that I understand everything right and although I love english, I still don't understand everything.

Yes, there's something true about that. I mean, the german language is complex and we have so many words. many more than the english language so we can use synonyms and metaphors. English is a simple language, that's a fact. So I like reading german books better, too.

Yeah, that's why I love eglish music so much better than german music. And in my opinion you can interpretate english songtexts better than german ones

Jep, the german ones are just so clear and most of the times there isn't even room to interpretate them.

When I was in Chicago, my exchange partner told me that she hated the song Bad Romance von Lady Gaga because of its meaning and I understood that I most of the time don't think of the real meaning of a song when I sing it. I just sing it and that's it. But the Americans understand every word of the english songs and don't come around understanding it completely. It's just like with the german songsfor us: We understand every word and know the meaning immediately.

BeitragThema: Re: I'm singing in the rain...   Sa März 31, 2012 10:33 pm

Yes, with some songs it's the same with me. I sing them along for a long time and I son't think about it. But then there is a word or a line, I don't understand so I look up the songtext - and I'm partly shocked when I actually read the whole text.

But what I mean is, that some english texts are very ... imaginary ... if that is the right word
"witout orchids in my pocket and cushions for the soul" (Perilously here by Scott Moffatt). What is he saying with that? I can translate the words, but the meaning?

Hm, I think it sounds a bit like a poem in this case. Maybe it's just like with a poem. When you read german poems you mostly don't understand everything because of the figurative language. Maybe that's how Americans see english songs. Sometimes I really wish that english was my mothertongue. I love this language so much and especially in the case of music I would like to hear the song just like Americans hear it. Do you know what I mean? :D

I know what you mean, Jay.
I always wonder what it sounds like for americans, or english speaking people in general, when they listen to english music. Because I know how it sounds when someone sings in german, I mean, it is totally different. BECAUSE we don't always understand english music when we first listen to it is the reason why it is so good to us, I think.

Yes, I love the english language, too.
It ist a simple language, but why should simplicity be a bad thing?
The poem is a good comparison, Jay, thanks^^

Simplicity ain't a bad thing at all. It's a good thing that english isn't as complicated as german.
