    Dear birdeenīs call,

    Come on, you will be able to take a joke. My maxim is: many a true word is spoken in jest. I have mentioned this saying on several occasions because it is one of my favourites. Of course, my words do not exclude anyone, and I didīt mean to favour anyone either. But you must admit that it is no overstatement at all to apply this title to fivejedjon.

    Best greetings from old Hucky

    P.S. I donīt even know how to write a private message.
    Besides, everybody can read what I write. There is nothing to hide.

    If you want to send a private message, to me in this example, you can click my nickname in the upper left corner of this post, next to my avatar. A menu should appear where you have to click "Send a private message to birdeen's call".

    Re: Letīs have a relaxing chat over (a) coffee.

    I'm curious, what do you mean by "relaxing chat"?

    Not a teacher.

    Re: Letīs have a relaxing chat over (a) coffee.

    Personally, British English and American English will always be the English language , regardless its origins. You can be understood in any English speaking country, if you respect the universal English sentence structure. The only difference between American and British English is just the vocabulary choices and pronunciation. There is always, a casual way or simplified way of speaking and it excise in almost every language." Iīd like to have a relaxing chat over (a) coffee with you" sounds like you're asking a friend, whether you add a cup of coffee or not, it's still understandable. That is beauty of the English language, very few languages have this kind of way of speaking while being understood. If you were to do that in another language, that person wont understand you.....
