International Student at Towson University

Hi,

I'm an International Student at Towson University in Maryland, USA. I have little difficulties in maths problem -- stated in english-- because my native language is french.

I found this forum. And like it. I hope you will help me.

Re: International Student at Towson University

I won't help you. But, I'm sure others will. You know, the guys who really care about maths.

Welcome!

(I don't actually know why I'm here...)


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Hi nvictor and welcome. This is a very international forum and I am sure many members will understand your difficulties.

Don't forget to mention that you are not a native English speaker because your English is good and people may think a mistake was  intended.

For example "little difficulties" means you are good at maths. Did you mean "a few difficulties"?

Re: International Student at Towson University

Hey, what a fun phrase "ca roule" is.

It says "it rolls", but it means "I'm fine" and "going great", and "that idea suits me" all in one, am I right?
