Talking Just introducing myself

Hi, I'm Joanna, I've been in the French Army for 6 years now, and as a former English-teacher, I miss speaking English.

Talking hi!!

Thanks,
Here's a little more about me:
I enlisted in 2003 (february) as a private, in a regiment speciallized in operations linked to human rescue (after natural disasters mainly, but not only).
Then, since I had graduated from college, I was sent to a signal regiment to teach English, nice experience, but not what I was looking for. the good point was my degree had been taken into account, I was an officer.
I passed a comptetitive exam in 2005, after 2 years of harsh officer schooling, I'm here!! My main job is not very exciting (public contracting), but I get a chance to be sent on short missions from time to time (because I speak English), and that's really cool!!
I have another exam on monday, it's about tactics (in English of course), and right now, I should be working... Going back to my notebooks and exercises...

Welcome to the forums Joanna..I hope you enjoy...your grasp on the true English language is proberly better then most of us on here...its mostly American and British people on these forums.

The English broke the back of their own language and then we gave it to the 'yanks and they executed it.


Im glad your here....it will be nice to hear English....maybe I will learn it


Once again welcome

Hi Joanna! And hello to everyone else as well! I'm new to the forum! My soldier is in the Army as a tanker, and I joined this forum to learn a little more about the Army--especially things like what to expect the last 3 years of his contract, and life after the Army. Thanks!

Haha, I think the same of my so dear French language, when I hear the kids in the family speaking. Not to mention sms spelling!!!
Shakespeare and Victor Hugo are certainly drinking a beer together and recalling how their respective languages were rich and colorfull, once...

Let's face it, us Americans don't speak English. We speak American. My three days in England a few years back confirms my theory
