    What's wrong with Canada?
    by Doug Nelson
    Canada sounds too good to be true. It always seemed to me kind of like a cardigan-wearing, bookish neighbor. The only jokes I ever hear at Canada's expense are about how nice the people are, how cold it gets, or how they pronounce "about the house", all of which are pretty lame joke subjects....

    Hi all,

    You don't hear much from me, but I am here daily almost. Lot's of reasons... one I guess I don't feel confident enough to speak up about technique yet, two because I am newly on my own for the first time in many years and have been so busy trying to get something going to make...

  • What's your native language?

    Since it's still new, I'm acting as a bit of a greeter in our chat rooms. It's fun to meet you all "in person". But it underscores that RetouchPRO users are from all over, and speak many languages natively.

    So, what's your native language? Are you comfortable speaking about technical topics (such as retouching) in any other languages?

    Mine is English, of course (or "American", if you prefer).

    Doug, it's fun having the possibility to "meet" some people here. Once we get used to it, I think it will become a crowded place. My native language is german, and yes, I am comfortable with speaking english and if I have not forgotten all, I get by with italian as well...

        English (with a southern accent) :-) Perhaps, as things progress, you could set up language rooms, Doug.

          English ---from Idaho originally but now Texas.. Still no southern accent I don't think or at least the natives here don't think so.

                only English I'm afraid. I love the French language but have butchered it enough that I'll stick to English :-)

                  My native language is English (UK), but after 30 years in Brazil I must admit that I feel more comfortable speaking Portuguese.

                    Just plain English(with an Aussie accent), It will be good 'talking' to people from all over the world with a common interest. First time for me was yesterday with Doug and Flora,
                    nice people, good fun.

                            There now, bazza... I knew there was an accent but I couldn't quite place it!!!

                            My native language is Italian

                            I am comfortable speaking English, German and Spanish

                            Speaking technical stuff best in English, though ... (helps hiding my ignorance with the excuse of using a 'foreign' language)

                              American English here. I've studied German and Russian, but so long ago I'm virtually useless.
