English is a language not a measure of intelligenc

12/07/2017 at 03:07

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who contributes to the forums and is working to help build a better world by tackling some of our most impactful problems, like plastic pollution. I especially appreciate those who bravely express their ideas despite what limitations they may have in the English language, or how the magic of the internet ends up translating it. We all have limitations and differences. In the end it’s great to be able to communicate with people around the world and see how much we all have in common.

(Ironic that the 50 character limit resulted in me misspelling intelligence 🙂

Me too, a Language is used to transport or communicate thoughts from one human brain to another human brain and gramma is just a orientation like the white stripes on every street, “They help you to find a way but even if you cross them you are able to get to where you wanted to be”

I am rather well-versed in the use of translating tools… 😎
Bring on your non-English!

You’re a hero for taking on this project, whowever you are, where ever you’re from.

@amdnox I love the analogy. I live in an English speaking country and have had German, Dutch, Swiss and French people stay with me. I try very hard to learn some of their language, even if it’s just to say good morning I hope you slept well, I think if people try and as you say if they don’t get it 100% correct who cares. The intent and the drive to share and help is the most important thing!

Avec Google Translate mĂȘme si ce n’est pas la panacĂ©e ça permet de se comprendre:

Merci Ă  tous.
Je voulais juste dire merci Ă  tous ceux qui contribuent aux forums et travaille pour aider Ă  construire un monde meilleur en s’attaquant Ă  certains de nos problĂšmes les plus percutants, comme la pollution plastique. J’apprĂ©cie particuliĂšrement ceux qui expriment leurs idĂ©es avec courage malgrĂ© les limitations qu’ils peuvent avoir dans la langue anglaise, ou comment la magie de l’Internet finit par le traduire. Nous avons tous des limites et des diffĂ©rences. En fin de compte, c’est gĂ©nial de pouvoir communiquer avec les gens du monde entier et de voir ce que nous avons tous en commun.

(Ironique que la limite de 50 caractĂšres a abouti Ă  moi l’intelligence faute d’orthographe 🙂

My English will not be the limit, sky is the limit.
I’ll not be fluent in English today. IT’s not my target but I’ll try to implement a
selective sorting of our garbage at home.

Not sure all words are correct but who cares ….
