imo if parents dont respect their kids then they dont deserve respect from their kids. im tired of people thinking that its normal for parents to treat their children like property or like they dont have feelings. im tired of people thinking that overprotective parents arent harmful. treat your children like people because thats what they ARE
i love it when people who speak english as a second language make errors based on how something is phrased in their language
like almost every polish person i have come across has asked me ‘how is it called in english’ rather than ‘how do you say this in english’ or ‘what is this called in english’ because of how you ask the question in polish
idk i just think it’s really cute
Saaaaame and I love when I get it because I know it from the language, like Russian people use very very few articles, and it always bugged me until I started Russian and understood that it was because they have no article!
But I hate it when it comes to myself, like recently I’ve gendered so many words in English it’s just a nightmare why do I do thisss
I find myself in a pickle whenever I try to say something even vaguely proverbial, because the English equivalent often just doesn’t sound as good in my head, even though the word-for-word translation I actually ended up saying makes zero sense.
(also to this day I consciously have to stop myself from calling snails’ shells their “houses” because that’s how you say it in Hungarian and even after 14 years of learning English still confuses the heck out of me sometimes)
what does wi-fi even stand for
