    Oi'
    What is up everybody?
    Im doing good!
    I just downloaded this app because i felt like getting in touch with the web world...
    But, im kinda new to this whole forum thing so give me a minute to find my place. :)

    Well... Here is some information about me:

    My name is Vincent,
    I'm 16 years old, i love to play games like Call of Duty, Batllefield and World of Warcraft..
    Now don't think im some kind of nerd, haha, i also like to do stuff with my friends but i wouldn't mind gaming all day.
    I'm from Holland (The Netherlands) so sorry if my English isn't that good, i'm trying to expand my English vocab everyday.
    Most of the English things i know so far are from the gaming, seriously.. It's so good for your English!
    I really recommend playing games if you can't speak English.

    Anyway, that is all i have to say...

    So yeah.. I'll keep in touch. :)

    Bye!

    Teh iPad is 1337.

    Hi Boss - welcome to the forum! :)

    You sound like my son at that age (but that was back in the late 1980s - things don't change much in the world - :D)

    Your English is fine - I've been to the Low Countries, including yours and was quite impressed w/ the multi-language skills of the people there (such a lack in the USA - I can do a little Spanish but that's it!) - I was most impressed in Bruges (I know Belgium) taking a boat tour in which the young male guide gave the tour in 4 different languages; of course the history of the area seemed to require a lot of historic compromises, but was a wonderful experience for my wife & me - hope that you enjoy the forum! :)

    Thanks so much, you're the first person i actually have an conversation with.
    Well, i've only been alive for 16 years and don't really know if things change, you've got more life experience.:)

    Yeah, they learn you a bit of English when you're 11 years old, not much, just some random phrases( that's the word right?) and the most people in Holland spend their holiday in nearby countrys such as Germany or France, so you'll learn those langauges aswell, although my French isnt that good either.

    A lot of the tourists take a boat ride, i've done it once with my familly, it was pretty funny but not really my type of thing, i think it has something to do with age. :)

    And i hope you enjoyed your stay over here!
    Thanks again, dad. ;D
