Hi everyone! My name is Maria and I’m new here. Right now I speak spanish (obviously haha), english, french and portuguese. I’m looking fordward to certificate portuguese next december and keep practicing french. I would love to meet people who is as in love as i am with languajes and literature. I receive every literature recommendation you would like to give me in those languages I mentioned before. So, yeah, hi!
Hi Maria! Welcome to the forum and the community! Since you like literature, have you seen our Book Club post? I believe that it would be of interest for you.
Yo estaba viendo un monton de videos de Columbia, y se parece muy hermosa.
As for literature recommendations, I am not currently reading anything other than beginner and low intermediate books in Russian or Italian, or how to prepare taxes in Spanish.
No, I haven’t seen it but I’ll go check it out right now. Thank you so much!!
Hahaha I hope you can come visit someday! It is a beautiful country. If you ever have any book recommendation would be great! It could be also in English.
If you like biographies, I would recommend “Benjamin Franklin - an American Life”. He is one of the Founding Fathers of the US, and one of the most important figures in history. I consider him the grandfather of American culture.
Most of the books I’ve read recently all deal with money and finance, or accounting. Prior to that, I read the Game of Thrones series (A Song of Fire and Ice - not recommended unless your English is at a high level).
Que tipo de libros te gustan?
Nice to meet you here. I wonder if you have any recommendation for French?
Speak soon !
I mostly read novels and I love short stories
Thanks for the recommendation!!
I’ve actually havent read many books in french but one author that I really like is Guy de Maupassant. His short stories are awesome and I think that you can find some of them read by french natives on the internet and that’s great way to improve listening skills.
Thank you very much. That’s very helpful already.
Oi Maria! Que legal ver uma colombiana aqui! Eu amo a Colombia!

Obrigada pela resposta. Não tinha olhado o fórum desde outubro do ano passado mais agora voltei e agradeço muito sua recomendação, vou pesquisar o club!
