Hi everyone,

My English is as bad as your french but I apologize. ^^

I come from Alsace and live in Belfort :

Lion of Belfort : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lion_of_Belfort
The Lion of Belfort is a monumental sculpture by Frédéric Bartholdi, sculptor of the Statue of Liberty in New York, located in Belfort, France.



I am 25 years old and I collect old mechanics.
I work in a research laboratory on the hot air engines.

I hope, one day, going to visit a friend in North Carolina (Boon) and see a lot of beautiful museum.

I stop my massacre of the English language and I go to show you my small collection.

My cushman scooter (civilian frame) in Sainte-Mère Eglise (Normandie - Utah beach) in 2010 :

Thumbs up Re: French member, Ww2 and Stirling engine lover

Your English is FAR better than MY French........unless I'm REALLY mad.......

Having English as a second language doesn't matter.......as long as we can understand what you are saying is what matters.
Sometimes it's hard understanding what is being said by Americans....... .......

WELCOME to Stak.......

With my poor english, I see some zombies in the traduction (pick/eating brains). Google traduction doesn't help me... and be evil.

But ... I'm going to pick up a maximum of things, I've found lot of well topics.

And I have created a new topic about my engine (Rider) :

A Hillbilly from Southwest Missouri USA also welcomes you. I took a Foreign Language in school. It is called ENGLISH. It was foreign the way it was taught to me even though I also speak it.

I was born in a german speaking zone (Alsace - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alsace) and french is a "Foreign Language" but now my german is bad too.
Definitly, I'm bad in everything...

But I'd love to visit your region, Kent. Missouri is a name that invites you to travel.


I forgot to say, I'm working at bibliography of french hot air engine branch.



Bresson said he works since 1825 in hot air engine. (like Burdin)

Salut à toi ami canadien !

Si il est plus facile pour moi de parler français, je pense que cela risque fortement d'être mal vu par nos amis américains ou anglophones. La moindre des choses étant de faire tout pour être comprit par eux.
Mais libre à eux d'essayer d'apprendre le Français

Hi Canadian dude ! (french version is more formal)

If it is easier for me to speak French, I think it is very likely to be frowned upon by our American friends or English speaking peoples. The least we can do is to do everything to be understood by them.
But free for them to try to learn French.

I failed three years of French. It's easier to use this:

It does OK...

Si il est plus facile pour moi de parler français, je pense qu'il est très susceptible d'être mal vu par nos amis américains ou anglais peuples parlant. Le moins qu'on puisse faire, c'est de tout faire pour être comprise par eux.
