I'm somewhat desperate - I'm sorry if this doesn't exactly fit the community... But does anyone know of any good sites with official public opinion polls on mixed marriages in France? I need this for a paper, and am at an utter loss. Ideally, I'd love statistics about opinions on marriage with other europeans, with maghrebins, with americans, with asians, etc. but I'm totally grateful for ANYTHING. Just needs to be official. And I keep coming up with some Tarot card site.
I can read sites in English or French, and possibly Japanese. I just need public opinions. X_X This is part of research for a French paper.
Hi, I'm about to go on a study abroad to Argentina (mostly Buenos Aires) at the end of this month. It's going to last about six weeks, which would be a long time for a vacation, but not very long at all for an immersion experience. I've been studying Spanish about 3 and a half years and I feel like I'm at a good point in terms of skill to go abroad. So what I want to ask is, can y'all offer any tips to maximize the opportunity? Obviously I don't want to speak English while I'm there; if I'm not talking/listening to someone I should be watching local TV or reading the paper, etc. But does anyone have any less obvious suggestions? (They can relate to Spanish/Argentina in particular, but any immersion advice is appreciated.) Thanks!
What's a gisha? I heard it off of Tyra Banks' show, "Pro Athlete Groupies" as "girl who is trained to throw herself at an athlete."
I've gotten a bit lost. A point in the right direction would be helpful.
I'm trying to explain why, in English, it is acceptable to say:
-Those shoes, I really love.
But then explain why there are problems with the following:
-I wonder where Jenny put that cook book.
-* That cook book, I wonder where Jenny put.
Okay, I get that the sentence would sound fine if it were "That cook book, I wonder where Jenny put it." Alas, it's not that simple. Put I know has to refer to something? Is there a trace missing? I'm not sure how to explain this. Or perhaps somehow this has to do with Binding Theory and referring expressions? I know for a fact this has something to do with movement though. I just can't seem to put my finger on how or what this is.
