    What is the weirdest ESL message you have gotten on RJ?

    And no I'm not talking about exclusively English to "X" language I mean in general terms? The ESL thing is just way easier to type.

    and 2] what bugs you more about them?

    i just received this one:

    "Hello,,, Nice to meet you.
    I'm from bangkok,thailand

    I hope you contact back to me...


    Thanks,, Friend"

    not that weird, but they all seem to have the same common language/word choice: Friend, Muscle, Gym, Surf, Flexing.

    Leka? maybe its a misspelling in German.

    Cause I know lecker is yummy in German.


    "Oh yes I like good/big cocks for a good fuck mmmh Yummy!"

    thats my best guessicon_biggrin.gif

    strange lol

    Come on Guys don't make fun of Foreigners. I wonder how many of you speak a second or a third language. I don't wanna blow my own horn in here but as someone who speaks four languages (quadrilingual) I know how challenging that can be. Thank God for the spell check icon_razz.gif

    Every now and then my bf calls me ESseL.
    I remind him that it should be ETL (no, that's not a lisp, but Third).

    I dont think anyone is intentionally making fun of foreigners - but it is amusing to see bad translations. Nowadays people are relying too much on computers to do translation work - not always such a good idea.

    http://www.engrish.com/ is a good example of translations gone terribly wrong.

    I do sometimes find those messages annoying but not because of the grammar issues but instead of the content of the message which like native English speaker's messages can sometimes be very vain/graphic and annoying come-ons.

    In terms of the grammar, I agree with Hollister and I think its regardless of using translation services or just speaking a non-native tongue. IF everyone who used a non-native language waited to use that language till they were experts in that language, then no one would ever learn a second language.

    When you learn a second language there is a stage, much like a 'baby/toddler stage " of talking that you have to go through where you make mistakes. That is natural in any person learning a language. Patience is a virtue.

    I'm not generally offended by the senders grasp of the language so much as the general sentiment of most of the messages. They are almost always comically rambling over the top attempts at flattery coupled with the idea that you should be with this person forever and always. Really, you decided from the other side of the world that based on a blurry online picture of me that we are destined to be soul mates? Give me a fucking break.

    Because I have Mandarin in my profile, I get a fair number of messages from Chinese speakers from all over the world (China, Malaysia, Singapore, yadda yadda), and usually they're offering to be a Chinese tutor, but the messages can be pretty un-understandable sometimes.
