ENGLISH FORUM HOME LOUNGE | REFRESHING FOR THE BETTER YOU!
Salutation fellas! emoticon-Siap Gan


It is wonderful in EFor if we can establish a tradition where our Lounge collapse just in the same time as the new year or so, say an annual collapse. Within the new year approaches, we expect the better of ourselves. I truly hope that this Lounge can reflect the change that we'd all like to obtain for our future.


Without further ado, here's EFor new Lounge for this year and of course in the hope for better you!

ENGLISH FORUM HOME LOUNGE | REFRESHING FOR THE BETTER YOU!

You can change but home stays all the same!

emoticon-Cool


I would like to emphasize that you may post whatever needs posted here as long as:

  • YOU USE ENGLISH HERE. THIS FORUM IS NOT NAMED ENGLISH FORUM FOR NO REASONS. The point is to practice English here, so do it. Don't hesitate since everyone has their own level of fluency
  • YOU RESPECT FELLOW EFORS. It is somehow a habit for Indonesian people to use English profanities when they know some. You think you look cool? Not at all. The use of extreme profanities is strictly forbidden here in EFor. SAME GOES TO SARA!
  • YOU DO NOT JUNK EXCESSIVELY. Please no more than 3 posts in a row. I know I have loosened up the rule in Lounge a bit. But, that does not necessarily mean I would like to proliferate junks here. Post duly.
  • LAST BUT NOT LEAST. YOU ENJOY IT LIKE A HOME OF YOURS emoticon-Angkat Beer

I'm from a place known as Barnsley in England, a sort of prehistoric cave where we use Elizabethan pronouns, pronounce vowels in a way that makes people think we have a cold, and eat mushy peas.

Perhaps the best way to compare American and British English would be to compare videos. This typically English chap has a bash at performing a sonnet (A small work by another English chap we know as the Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare).
He didn't do too badly for a beginner.

An English gentleman would change that a little.

'Tis and honour, Sire.

Posters might notice a U where there was none, and a subtle changes in punctuation.

US English is far more relaxed so commonly easier for ESL students. However, as Stephen Fry so elegantly suggested, "A cut glass English accent can fool unsuspecting Americans into detecting a "brilliance that isn't there", thus I generally recommend practising a smooth English accent.
One cannot enter the right social circles unless one is prepared properly, that preparation including correct use of Her Majesty's English.
A young gentleman wishing to do well in life should stand out from the madding crowd, so careful employment of our post-Norman tongue is essential.

It's wording of a Texan bud. We tend to discount a tad.
Our old Appalachian still has resemblances on an old English but with a local predicament. LOL.

Haven't been around on kaskus for few years now
Hi Kaskusers,

Been away from this website for few years now, used to have several IDs to bump my jual-beli thread.

Well, this morning my mind wandered, I don't know whom to share my thought with, so I think I just write it out here and who cares...

Anyway, I read things about fintech earlier this morning, you know the cryptocurrency, payment apps, peer to peer landing and such

Well, I do think that the world is digitizing now, many things are now done in bits. We replace letters with e-mail. Using less pen nowadays - although I do jolt down some reminders on book, easier to remember when I use the pen than typing it.

Back to what I read about the fintech. It crossed my mind on how to replace money papers with digital things (well, money is just paper with digits written on it, and it's the digit that matters, not the paper). Although I don't believe in Bitcoin (as it doesn't have any regulators, don't know what backs up the currency) - I believe in the technology (BLOCKCHAIN).

For those who don't understand what BLOCKCHAIN is, please google it, it may take several time of readings and watching youtube before we have some grasp of what BLOCKCHAIN is.

All of the things I heard when I was kid (surprisingly from my religion teacher during my elementary days at a christian school) - seems to be coming true now. Some things are the devil will make world unites, and human will be planted with chip. The world seems to be with less barrier - it is converging on the internet. And electronic ID is a form of chip, it just takes some time before the chip is being planted in human, maybe the wait on technology how to plant the chip inside human - like gluing on the skin? And maybe in my grandchildren's era, the government is replaced by Artificial Intelligence. The sci-fi movies with some talking screen as the eyes of human seems to becoming available soon (early stage is replacing bank tellers with machines).

I should stop my mind before it goes to far. Back to the thought crossed my mind that I wanted to share. I believe in BLOCKCHAIN. and the central bank must start with BLOCKCHAIN to digitizing the currency. It's like chicken or egg first. Well, central banks must start with the technology first. From there, it goes to others like the printed money - the printed money itself is representation of the digitalize money (it should represent the money on the BLOCKCHAIN - say like encrypted QR code etc - can be verified using certain app issues by the bank, it goes down to the security of the printed money). And the apps can be used to claim the printed money (thus when the printed money is stolen, the money is locked by the server, recepient of the locked money - if the recepient of the money verifies the ownership of the serial number [encrypted QR code] first). 

So, it's about encrypted QR code on printed on paper money, the technology to control the circulation of the money, and security of the money itself.

It's just some imagination.

-Harry

More like a mod using an aphorism, but still a valid point.

Another thing about most Indonesian language training is teachers miss out on cultural reference, the aphorism quoted suggesting (rightly) the two should be considered a pair.

Afternoon. How are you people doing?
Been a long time since we met.

I'm currently learning the Polish language. Structurally it's similar to other slavic language (close to Czech language.) Alot of the alphabets were similar sounding to regular Indonesian alphabets except for special ones like Ł, Cz, Sz, and Ę.

New improvements made by KasApp!

To whom you reply the post (not quote) is now seen and also you can see if a poster has edited his post. Both of which do not exist on previous updates. It’s getting almost perfect now for a forum-based app. The only thing missing on app is mod tools. Now if that’s realized, it can be perfect.

Thought everyone should know this.

Hallo.
Ł, Cz, Sz, and Ę are there similarities between Polish and German language?
