    • Be a moderator! & Reports Announcement   03/07/19

      We're aware that PULL needs more moderation and attention, so we're actively looking to expand our mod crew! If you're a regular user and intend to stay this way, then rest assured that we're working on improving PULL for you. In order to do this, we rely on user reports, so I'd like to take this opportunity to ask everyone to report posts you think break a rule, disrupt discussion or shouldn't be allowed.  There is absolutely no concern over getting too many reports - we get a handful of reports per week. More reports would be great because it helps us figure out how our users want the forum to be - leaving criticism in threads doesn't make it easy for mods to find your opinions. Furthermore, don't worry about being a "snitch" or too harsh - a report doesn't mean action will be taken, that's up to the mods. A report really only tells us to look at the comment and to gauge the community atmosphere. Often times, peer pressure or established community atmosphere will dictate the direction a thread takes, and criticizing certain posts can be uncomfortable or downright futile when the majority disagrees with your view. This leads to groupthink and degradation of thread quality because the loudest/most active users get their way. So reporting is a way to quickly and anonymously (to other users) give feedback to the moderators. If we don't get this feedback, we think everyone's happy and there's no need for change. So use this feature as much as you'd like to help shape PULL into a more constructive community again. If you'd like to be a moderator: Click here for the application form.

    I've been asking the same thing, and people explained it a few pages ago. Not all people in Canada learn French at school, from what I remember schools usually give students a variety of languages to choose from, so you can choose French, but you may as well learn Mandarin or German.

    I can't remember if I learned PP at school, but I'm sure I was using it at Uni (in Central Europe).

    True!
    I have my theory, that staying in Korea was too hard for both of them, because of his family (I don't know I'm just guessing) and the specific role a woman needs to fulfill in Korean culture. There is an interesting book about it: "Kim Ji Young, Born 1982 ".

    We are not too sensitive. What you are saying is just untrue and unfair.

    I don't like her style, but at least it's consistent.

    I think warm colours suit her. Her natural hair colour is warm, her eyes are warm-toned, as well as her skin. The only problem is this platinum, plain helmet she has now.

    He is probably a numerologist, not a fortune teller. I knew from the beginning she's not pregnant yet, because no one would foretell a pregnant person.

    This behaviour is unacceptable. Someone is one sandwich short of a picnic here.

    This is all I needed to know, thank you!
    I (sadly) don't know much about Canada, I just know that both French and English are official languages, so I assumed it is easy to learn both of them. Thank you for clarifying.  In my country, there is only one official language, but we often learn English and German, I've also learned French in high school, and my second native language is Russian, but it's only because of my bilingual family. Learning Russian is no longer obligatory for everyone like it was for my parents and grandparents generations. Japanese is also popular nowadays and Scandinavian languages as well. I live in Uk now and I'm learning Irish because my best friend is from Ireland. Taylor has a Cantonese speaking spouse and she's not using this situation to learn the language while living in HK! It's just such a waste!

    Being bilingual (or multilingual) is a great value, good job! 
    Taylor lives in HK, she lived in Japan and she knows only one language so far. Nothing can force that girl to learn, I don't know if she is ambitious enough to encourage her children to learn Cantonese (I think offsprings will be only her responsibility, I can't imagine Tom taking the active part in their upbringing - I hope I'm wrong). I can tell she likes French (her French persona), but she never learned it. Am I wrong by thinking that learning French in Canada is easy (like finding the good teacher or native speaker)? Correct me if I'm wrong, please. 
    P. S. I'm Polish in the UK too, and I'm from a bilingual family.

    - more HK architecture, landscape
    - Taylor learning Cantonese or learning anything
    - foodie series was nice, I would definitely watch the second season of that
    - maybe she could visit some other nearby countries such as Singapore

    She definitely has a warm type of beauty. That's why this ashy, cool shade doesn't suit her and she looks unhealthy and washed out.

    And it's not a masterpiece of literature, it is ok. I'm glad she's reading something anyway.
