(no subject)

Can anyone tell me what this says, or at least what language this is? My housemate and I had a fight and he posted this on Facebook right after, so I'd love to know what it says. He's Bulgarian but I can't seem to get any sense out of Google translate for it, even if i take the words separately and use 'detect language'.

Thanks :D

coach breaks

Correct me if I'm wrong.
1) 'Coach breaks' are short tours by coach.
2) It can be associated with such concept as escape (like one from a groove), or with a need for a short break when we are "weary with toil".
3) It is mainly used in British English (and is not in common use among Americans).

Thanks in advance.

Second language acquisition...


I am currently taking a university course in 2nd language acquisition (my mother tongue is German and I am studying English) and I am most interested in the topic of learner differences like age, sex, aptitude and motivation.

Are there any current studies, articles, essays etc. that you would recommend additional to the normal textbooks like Savilla-Troike, Mitchell/Myles and so on. I am exspecially interested in clinical studies and the likes.

Anything you could recommend would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Bless you!

Everybody knows what does "bless you" mean. But recently I've faced a very weird thing - "plash you" or something like that.
So, I googled it but I didn't find anything useful about that.
Can anyone help me? Please.
Thanks in advance :)
