  1. Polite and courteous way of English expression

    Strongest strike is ignorance. Somethings and some people are just not worth of spending time, and what I fear most is the more time I spend on conversations with those people, the more I might be like them. No, I would rather die.
  2. Polite and courteous way of English expression

        Yes, I like this expression as well.
  3. Polite and courteous way of English expression

        Thanks. Somehow I like these kind of phrases and expressions.  
  4. Polite and courteous way of English expression

      Austen-like sentences She is one of my 2 favorite authors!

    Ok, no one seems to think Victorian phrasing plausible in this modern time.   English people still seem to be using it quite a bit, but not in any other countries, probably especially not in this country, because Germans are such practical creatures, such adornments are not appreciated.

      "Victorian phrasing" Exactly, somehow I fancy it so much. I used to watch a lot of BBC master piece series and really liked Victorian phrasing.   But more people seem to be against it.   Few years back, one of my colleagues is from England, and once started a phrase with "I took the liberty of ...." I liked it  Is this too flowry as well?

      Too quick conclusion!   One does not decide which country to live based on how people express with languages. This is just one of factors to consider, and not even the factor with the most weight, hardly.
  8. Polite and courteous way of English expression

      I know there is no meaning behind, but somehow I fancy it a lot.

        Sorry to say this, because you spent time to type so many texts, but this is not helping at all.   Could you please leave it to me to judge if the apology is necessary and if the other party would remember what I did wrong?
  10. In a formal setting, I would like to express the following in very polite English, like the expressions that we can read in classic English literature.   .... and feel deeply remorseful. With all my respect, I would like to ask if you could please be so kind as to accept my sincere apologies.
  11. A parking spot is available in an underground (-1) parking lot near Bismarckplatz in Heidelberg. The monthly rent is 60 euro, available from 1 June 2019. Please send me PM if you are interested.
  12. Does anyone have experience with Eazy DSL

        Thank you very much for the information.   Right now, I am sharing Unitymedia with my neighbor, and experience only very minor problems. It is quite acceptable.   I am thinking about this contract. I called them, and waited for 9 min, still no one picked up phone.   This is the first time for me to apply for internet contract. So a bit worried about making any mistake.   Could anyone please look at this package, and see if there is anything I need to pay attention or think carefully?   (1) Includes only internet, no land phone or TV. (2) The contract is for 24 month contract, and no fee increase during this time. (3) Activation is 39.99 euro which includes router.   My questions are:   (1) What if I move to a place where there is no Eazy internet connection possible in the new apartment? In other words, what happens if I have to terminate the contract?   (2) How much will be monthly fee after 24 months?   (3) Can I move my contract to new apartment if there is Eazy connection in the new apartment?
  13.   Just very hard for me to believe Bush was elected twice. He is truly mediocre and it is just so clearly showing up. He does not show any charisma, and looked so stupid. The president of America, in a sense, is representing the image of the country. I can hardly understand why Americans want such figure to represent them.   Not to mention what he did on economy. The economy was very bad in 2008.   How can this happen in democratic country? How can more than half people be deceived?
  14.   I am saying just go and vote for next term without complaining so much, because if he is bad, it will be reflected on votes, and he will not be elected. Apparently, something is not that democratic. I did not like Bush jr, but he served 2 terms.
  15. Two points: (1) The world is not ending today (yesterday's tomorrow), so we have not reached the pinnacle of self unawareness. (2) According to what you say, you are not among we home sapiens, because you have self awareness, and we homo sapiens do not.
