"Wow, wasn't aware there was a second continent (I almost never read the lore). That would be a nice change of pace, but probably a bit too ambitious.
I think Valenwood in combo with Elseweyr would be cool though. I'd love to see Woodelf…"
A dutch nerd, whose passion is history and addicted to books, TV, and computer.
I'm Daniel and like I already stated I love history and actually want to be a history teacher. I'm somewhat addicted to gaming. And I'm a somewhat sportive nerd. I cycle quite a bit and next Summer (2013) I want to do a little tour in England to meet my English nerdfighter friends. :)
I'm a vlogger, since recently. I play the harmonica and talk about about... stuff. I also intend to do 'let's plays' and maybe sing? http://www.youtube.com/user/DanAndHoe/

What's your favorite thing to put on your head?

If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Sotho is very interesting. To be honest in South Africa these days English(and to a lesser extent Afrikaans) is the lingo franca, so languages like Sotho aren't that useful. I mean people really do appriciate it when you try to speak their language, but learning one of the Bantu languages doesn't really give you much bang for the buck in the greater scheme of things. But for someone like me who has an interest in languages, it makes a very nice break from the monotony of the Western Germanic languages I speak, which all more-or-less conform to basic patterns. Like everything is different from a grammatical point of view in Bantu languages, and it really takes a massive mind shift to try to process everything.
And nope, 'n is the indefinite article in Afrikaans, and 'een' is never used in its place.
Anyway, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. We can discuss Skype and stuff there!
Amper! Die enigste vout wat jy gemaak het was om "een" in plaas van "'n" te skryf. Vir een of 'n ander rede het dit 'n grammatiese reël geword in Afrikaans om die afkorting van "een" te skryf. Byvoorbeeld: die man het 'n hond. Maar as jy oor die nommer praat gebruik jy 'een'. Byvoorbeeld: Ek het twee eende, maar daai man het een.
Not really...we kinda use multiple languages given the situation(some languages can express certain concepts and ideas better than others). So I speak English, Afrikaans, Dutch and German a little bit every day. I can also speak a little Sotho, but I only try to speak it when I want to impress someone(very few white South Africans can speak an actual native language). I guess languages are my thing haha.
Anyway, I kinda want to improve my Dutch, so maybe we can help each other?
