Linguistic Question

Mr.Lee
Burls

This will be the last Debate required before my account is no longer probationary. I would like for someone to answer a question for me. If you are raised in a foreign nation who's language is something else besides English, and you move to a country where the majority of the population speaks English, will you eventually start thinking in English, instead of your previous language? And would it be hard to switch back and forth? I have this as a debate merely to get rid of the probationary restr...

One Round of Random Banana.

Mr.Lee
Jonbonbon

I would like to present to that Monkeys are portrayed to eat fruit, especially that of the banana kind. Bananas are a fruit. Fruit are usually sweet. If you are what you eat, Are monkeys bananas? Molecularly, I think they are, because the proteins and nutrients are absorbed into the monkey's body, and the monkey processes those nutrients, and cells are formed as a result of banana processing. Bananas can be quite tasty, and are high in potassium, making them a good snack. Snacks can be beneficia...

blackkid

The three words I listed in the title could potentially cause more offense than calling somebody a cvnt, yet they're still allowed. It's not like swear filters even work, as we can either mis-spell words or use asterisks to bypass the filter. I submit that swear filters are both ineffective and redundant, and should not be implemented on sites where discussion of sexual/bodily functions is permitted....

MIstake is the mother of all success

Mistake is the mother of all success (Pro) Developing confidence is an important part of learning a language. I am a firm believer that mistakes are an important part of any learning cycle. As Henry Ford famously said: "I don't make mistakes, I learn too much from them". The next stage is to recognize the self-discovery process of one's mistakes. Sophia Lorean, a famous Italian and American actress once wittingly told a bunch of reporters that, "After all these years, I am still involved in the...
