Language chat rooms

Post by Licinius » Thu Dec 30, 2004 11:08 am

I want to give you all a link to a language comunity with chat rooms so that the textkit comunity could start using it for anciet greek and latin. They have a classics room but it is allways empty. Using chat rooms is a great way to practice languages and speacially this kind of languages!

I totally have to agree with you. I'd have to say that the internet has helped me so much learn the languages that I speak today. It has allowed me to create an environment, when needed, that would force me to use the language, where otherwise I never would have used it, by permitting me to connect with people who actually speak these languages in their respective countries. So totally, once I get better Latin, I myself volunteer for a chat with anyone. For now though, Licinius, posso-te falar em português. hehe. Ora, o que te dizia no outro fórum era que talvez podiamos entrar aqui e falar... a minha pergunta seria se é que se pode escrever em outra língua que não seja latim ou grego. Bem, se não se pode, podemos trocar endereços de email. Dirás tu: para que quererá este filho da lua falar comigo? Pois, tenho que te dizer que sempre estou a buscar pessoas que falam outras línguas. Além, nunca havia encontrado ninguém de Portugal que estudasse latim. Pergunto-te, então, onde é que moras em Portugal? Segundo, há quanto tempo estudas latim?
Bem, deixo-te por agora. Espero que tenhas um feliz ano novo. :)

Aqui vai! Moro no Porto e comecei mais a sério com o latim há menos de um ano. E não muito a sério...Portanto sou muito verde!Também estudo outras linguas e o latim é mais um vício. Por outro lado gostava de ter contacto com outras pessoas que estudam latim para poder evoluir mais e melhor(como aconteceu com o hindi nesse site que eu falei).
O que acontece num chat é que as dúvidas aí tiradas nunca mais se esquecem!
Como é que alguém da California fala português assim tão bem?

Vos valete!

Ah, então és Portuense!
comecei mais a sério com o latim há menos de um ano.
Hás-de falá-lo muito melhor do que eu porque eu comecei apenas alguns 6 meses.
Também estudo outras linguas e o latim é mais um vício.
Que línguas falas então? Concordo contigo no que dizes. Hehe... O latim também é um vício para mim. Gosto de aprendê-lo e cada vez quero saber mais. Diz-me, quão avançado estás? Já leste textos originais? Quais?
Como é que alguém da California fala português assim tão bem?
Boa pergunta. Hehe. Pois, verás... sou um grande amante das línguas românicas. Por tanto, há alguns dois anos decidi que tinha de aprender português. Não me foi tão dificil, posto que falava já espanhol e francês. Além disso, sempre me dizem que tenho algo para as línguas... um amor, uma paixão, uma facilicidade para aprendê-las. Digo eu, quem visita esta comunidade, há-de possuir estas qualididades, ou não estariamos aqui nem tu nem eu. E aqui estou agora, a aprender latim. Como te disse, gosto de encontrar pessoas com quem possa falar. Tenho alguns correspondentes em Portugal e no Brasil. Falo com eles, escrevemo-nos cartas, mandamo-nos coisas, e assim é como pratico. Por isso quando disseste que o chat ajuda na aprendizagem das línguas, sabia que tinhamos algo em comum. E sabes algo, foi uma coisa do destino que aprendesse a falar como português, já que quando se estuda esta língua no continente americano, faz-se com a norma brasileira. Eu somente escutava radios e televisão de Portugal. Ora sempre que conheço brasileiros, e aqui na Califórnia há muitos, perguntam-me se sou de Portugal. Sempre é a mesma coisa. E isso não é tudo, chamam-me de padeiro e não sei que outras coisas mais. hehe. Claro, tudo de brincadeira, mas dizem-no.
Bem, acho que disse demais! É bom falar línguas românicas quando se está a aprender latim, não crês? E o português é uma das melhores. :)

Salve FiliusLunae!

A respeito de textos de latim a resposta é não, tirando uma bricadeira com Bellum Civile e a Eneida(adoro a eneida e quando a puder ler em latim fico satisfeito), mas muito lentamente. Também estudo hindi e desenrasco-me bem melhor do que com o Latim, porque fui à India, e continuo porque gosto do hindi e mais ainda dum seu antepassado-o Sanskrito. A última das linguas é o italiano, porque gosto e mainada!
Castelhano falo fluentemente e ingueles também. Omeu frances tá um pouco eferrujado...
E é isto. Aparece no chat(apesar da diferência horária 8 ou 9 horas) que há lá muito maluco por linguas

Vale

This looks like a terrific site, Licinius! Now the only concern is that I'll have yet one more site to fill up my time... oh dear. As if I haven't got enough to take care of already.

Olá, Licinius! Já entrei nessa página, e gostei muito dela! Bem, a verdade, já a conhecia, pois tem o meu blog sobre as línguas românicas, mas nunca tinha entrado no chat! É a primeira vez que vou a um chat no qual posso escrever basicamente em todas as línguas que falo. Hehe.
Agradeço que o tinhas posto aqui.
Em quanto aos textos latinos, eu não li muitos ainda. Às vezes, gosto de ler a bíblia, que não é tão complexa como os escritores clássicos. E também alguns textos não muito complicados que vêm no livro de Wheelock, com o que estou a aprender.

E pois, contigo, espero falar logo. :)

There are no Greek or Latin chatrooms there, so who's gonna create them? I think it's a great thing, then I'll be able to practice my Latin even more, and I'll have to be able to type it fast!

Hmm.

It requires much fighting to get Unicode working on IRC. Some clients work, some do not. I just spent a week fighting with various options. :)

Those who use iChat/AIM can connect to the group chat "Textkit" if in the mood.

If you use AIM (AOL's chatty thing), or happen to be a Mac user with iChat, just go to your File menu and select "Go to chat." When it asks for a name, use "Textkit".

I was finally able to get an irc client working with Unicode, so [url]irc://unilang.org/classics/[/url] works for me now, too.

Umm... My AIM messenger has no File menu, and I can't find "go to chat" anywhere. :? Also, I can't find any directories of chat groups either.

Please help. :(


(I'm using Windows, if that matters.)

I'm using trillian for AIM, so I don't know if this will help. But it's called "Join a chat room". I found the textkit room but there was no one there. :(

I'm unlikely to be there during the day weekdays. Evenings in my timezone and weekends I'm likely to be logged in.

I have using those chat rooms. They're very cool. :)

Sorry for the late response. Mmhh... Well, like I said, the internet has helped to connect with people, so that I may have conversations in the target language, typing, and especially, speaking (voice chat). I found this to help me tremendously, so that when the opportunity arises to actually put the language to use, I feel rather prepared. In any case, the chat rooms, more than anything else have helped me to improve whichever language. The learning, well, that's a different story. :P
If you're wondering which ones speak, I speak only Romance languages, besides English: the major ones, plus Catalan. :D
