Del, my sincere 'thank you!' for your kind words!
I read your post this morning and I was amazed by your words about me and whole your post!
Del, As you I always hear voices when I read. It is especially thrilling when I read poems… I hear loudly shouts and quiet whisper… there are so many people’s emotions in poems! … Sorry, I’ll continue for topic…
At first it was as ‘it’s a kind of magic!’ ©: I suddenly started to hear English speech when I read English!
Of course, it was my first seriously English book - “Thud”. And now I hear different voices when I read this forum. But from time to time I make mistake. The writer's gender is more apparently In Russian language (because of the end of verbs ). In English language I must know about names for define gender (Philip is a boy and Ann is a girl! ) . But I’m not good at this . That’s why seldom I hear man voice when I read a post and later I guessed that it was woman!
I desire to learn English more and more and starting this week my English lessons are continue. Honestly I don’t like our new teacher (man about 34 years old, he seems too presumptuous and vain about his person
) but he promised that we’ll speaking fluent after 6 months ((I and my colleagues)) … That's why I'll try be patience, I believe and hope!
