Freude That's also in my opinion.

I think we all should correct each other and always there is a mistake we should edit the post and correct it in text, too.

So, as much as possible posts are written in a correct way smile

Well, why don't you just begin with something out of your life, like school? Everybody could participate in such a chat, then.

Of, course we could also discuss political matters like the problems in France or the USA, but I don't think many will join in this conversation, however if you feel like discussing something like this, I would certainly try to participate in the discussion.

As I am usually working elsewhere on the internet (i.e.: the historyboard here), I do not believe it would be good if I would start a conversation.
However, I hope that some of the topics you one could start a discussion about are interesting enough to start a conversation about these matters.

Hi everyone!
I think it's a very good idea to start a conversation because it can have a good effect on our ability to speak english well. I personally love english very much and therefore would really be glad to join into a chat but i am unfortunately at a comlete loss of any idea for a possible topic...
So I'll just keep on thinking about one or hoping that someone else will start a discussion... smile
I hope that if I made any mistakes that someone will point them out to me.
Looking forward to a conversation,
Greets Yellow

P.S.: MI, I don't know too much about the problems you're talking about, so why not give a short information on it? This will then perhaps lead to a discussion about it. I can imagine that that could be rather interesting.

I will certainly give you some information about the problems.

As you may have heard several riots in the biggest French cities have had desastrous impact on the political situation of France. Everything began with the death of two French boys in Clichy-sous-Bois in the North of Paris who thought, if the information provided by the press is correct, to be followed by the police.
During the following nights, young inhabitants of these "Hot spots of society" began to set cars, etc. on fire to react to the police' behaviour. One could say that the young people living there are now getting rid of all their accumulated aggression and the stored energy - via destroying things.
Now, the members of the"Assemblé Nationale de la Republique Francaise" ask themselves how this could have happened and they are trying to regain control over the problematic regions by enabling fast trials as well as imposing a very hard curfew on the population and finally, the measures show the intended effects.

And this is the situation in France. Anyone who wants to add details may do so. My suggestion now is that we could try to discuss these matters, share our views on the government's measures or the measures we can think of.

I, for example, am sure that all this could have been foreseen. There are so many problems in these regions, too many people are unemployed and just walking through the streets all day, because there is nothing else for them to do.

But perhaps, somebody else would like to complete my summary and give his or her opinion about the outbreak of violence in France...

I heard of those people setting cars on fire through the news and it was also mentioned in school.
I also do think that the government should've foreseen that from what I have heard about the situation of those immigrants. I believe, and correct me if I'm mistaken, that they have no chance to get a proper job as they do not speak french too well and they are thus abused to make the "dirty jobs" for the french, meaning jobs that no one else wants to do e.g. in huge factories under bad conditions.
I understand that there is much anger as a result and that those people have restrained this anger for generations. Consequently, such an outbreak could have been foreseen.
But I do not think that setting cars on fire will change anything. Of course, on doing this, they want to demonstrate their Power to the Government, but I don't think that the Government will give in to them either. By trying to make living conditions better for them, they do unnecessary damage and make it perhaps even worse.
I'd like to know what the others think.So, please, join into the conversation!
And please correct my mistakes if you find some.

Well, your information basically is correct. Certainly, it is true that the people need work. But the problem usually is not the language (because most of the people there come from former French colonies), but the low skill of these people. Most of them have not had a decent education and therefore, they are only able to work in these factories - or not work at all.
The second problem of these people is, as far as I am not mistaken, that the number of jobs in these low-skill sectors is very low (like in Germany. But this development is easily explained. With the further industrialization and mechanization of a country, the share in employment of the tertiary and quartenary sector of industry become more and more important and most jobs in these industries require a decent amount of skill and education, which most people don't have there).

So I think that you need to give the people chances to DO something and, above all, to EDUCATE themselves, because many fail to do so during their time at the state-run establishments which call themselves "schools".

This is why I think that the people who do have a job in any kind of factory are not the ones most likely to become aggressive - however, I perfectly agree that the working conditions sometimes are too low.

I also agree on your point that some people want to show the government with their actions that they exist and have power, but I have one questions. I do not quite understand your phrase "By trying to make living conditions better for them, they do unnecessary damage and make it perhaps even worse" really, would you mind to explain this further and perhaps give an illustrating example?

With that phrase I wanted to say that, for example by setting cars on fire, those people want to force the government to give in to them and to improve their working conditions or education. Of course, they fail to do so, but end up only doing unnecessary damage and perhaps agitating the government or other people against themselves.
Do you now know what I meant to say? And do you agree?
Thanks for your information about the immigrants not being well-educated. Now I can understand their anger better because they don't even get a chance to apply for better jobs. They've just been ignored too long by the government. Of course that doesn't justify senseless destruction of other peoples' possessions.
I'm sorry that there are not more people joining in on our conversation unglücklich
Perhaps we should try and find another subject that's of everybody's interest.
MI, do you have an idea?

Silly me... Big Laugh
I thought that you meant the government with "they" - and that would not have made any sence, would it?
And of course, I agree with you on that point.

Well however, it's really a pity that nobody else is joining in our little conversation, because that normally is a topic with lots of different opinions.
A different topic? Like I said, everybody can complain - or not complain - about school, perhaps we take something from this field of topics? However, it should be specified, but I can't think of any topic in particular that has to do with school and concerns (at least) the whole of Germany.
I'll think about it...

Hi everyone!
I'm really sorry that I haven't written for a long days...I've had lots of stress with school tests lately.
I can't think of a topic for everyone as well. But it came to my mind that as this is the english board we could discuss a bit about the subject english in school. How do you like it? is your teacher good? What topics do you discuss in class?...and so on.
What do you think about that?
I really hope that it's not only MI and me who are writing here in the future...

The word order is off: it should be "...back here" or simply just "...back" with "here" just being implied by the fact that you're posting here !.
