S'il vous plaît excuser la langue. Je pensais que l'utilisation de Google Translate serait plus confus que d'écrire en anglais.

Hi! My name is Chris, I'm a 32-year-old railway worker from London (England). One of your members on Facebook kindly invited me to sign up to the forum - I hope that's ok. I was at the Return of the Ring event the other week where your group was present. I know nothing about re-enactment, so I was particularly looking forward to seeing how your group worked at the event, and from what I saw there, I really liked it. So much so that I'm tentatively thinking about the possibility of getting myself into a state in which I could possibly join you.

Obviously the main problem is that I don't speak French. As it happens, I've wanted to learn for a long time, but have never got around to it; I'm pleased now to have a reason to do so. So I'm thinking of beginning there and starting a French language course in January. As I mentioned, I also know nothing about re-enactment, so I'd like to learn a bit about it from here as well, and gradually start working out a character for myself - something pretty modest. My first thoughts are that the best match would be either as a hobbit or human, probably Gondorian. But I need to re-read the books, get inspiration, hopefully pick up tips here on what would work, etc...

I don't know whether I will end up joining your group in reality - I'd like to hope so, but the above will of course take a long time, so it's difficult to know what might happen. In the meantime, I hope you don't mind me tagging along here and getting to know you and your re-enactment group a bit.

Once again, sorry for writing in English. I find it horribly obnoxious when Brits and Americans act as though the rest of the world should know their language without making any effort themselves, so this feels particularly bad! I'm working on it.

Hi Chris and welcome here Smile

It's very kind of you to be concern about speaking English here. Personnally, I'm ok with this as it's the best way to communicate with you (and it's a language I really like). I think the main part of us will understand you (perhaps for the others you could use the Google Translate. It's far from being perfect but it can give a general idea. You could copy it as a "spoiler" to avoid too longer messages).

I must say I am very pleased that we made you sush an impression. Shocked Your desire to join our fellowship is a great compliment! I find your project very courageous and I really hope we will meet in the future around a firecamp. Very Happy

To join us, the distance is not a problem for we are used to it. This forum really is our "main" meeting place. The language could be a more problematic issue but as I said, we are a lot to understand it so we will be able to communicate before you begin for French lessons. And as a matter of fact, when we study Tolkien works, we do our best to go for the primary sources, which means the original writings in English. So you will find on the forum a lot of quotes you could understand and pick up for your character.

Concerning the re-enactment, no worries, you are not the only one to know nothing about it before coming here. We will be happy to explain you how we do and help you creating your character. And it seems like you are taking the right way (going modest at first, refering to the books, taking advices, ...). Don't hesitate to share your thougths and projects with us. Wink

And even if you don't get as involved as you wish, it will be a pleasure to talk with you about living in Middle Earth and of many other things.

Hello! It's a pleasure to see you there Never mind the English, it's pretty flattering you make all this effort for us, learning French and so on Smile

Don't hesitate to ask your questions and we'll try to answer the best we can - usually we say "don't hesitate to read the forum" but all is in french, you would find it difficult to understand.

Ithil has said all that was to be said, so be welcome here, and come as much as you want!

Thank you all for the warm welcome, and for the kind words! Smile

Ithil - that's a good idea, to use spoiler tags around Google translations, I'll make a habit of doing that. And I very much hope to meet you around a fire too - the site's photos have already made me jealous!

Laegalad - don't worry, I'll have a good look around the forums as best I can with the help of Google! But I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions too, not least when Google doesn't work so well.

Linniel - thanks! And that happens to me a lot.

Liryc - ha! I guess it comes down to city or village...

I'm looking forward to getting to know the forum, the subject, and the group and everyone in it better. At the moment it's a bit overwhelming, but everyone has been so friendly that I'm sure that won't be for long! Now back to The Hobbit before bed... study

Hello Chris, welcome here !

As the others, Ithil has already said every thing I wanted to say ! But I'm still going to say that I find your message and your efforts very kind, and I'm very impressed by your motivation ! Don't hesitate to ask if there is anything you need, if you want us to translate something for you, if you need any explanation ... we will be very pleased to help you ! (and English is really not a problem, don't worry about that !)

(and Lyric is right, Gondor is the best ! ^^)

I am glad to welcome you here, tin can!
I hope you will overpass the challenge of language and enjoy the discussions on the forum. It will of course be a pleasure to write in English for you here, but most discussions will of course remain in French... (Hope Google is a better translator than me!)
But don't hesitate to react in English if it's easier for you; before language, come ideas! and debating with someone who may have a quite different approach on many points is really exciting!
Good luck!...

Thank you, Aegalad! Please don't worry about the vast majority of the forum being in French - I'll manage, and I'd be mortified if it were any other way. Hopefully after I've started my classes I'll be able to join in in French without translation more and more as time goes on. The prospect of debating this stuff with you guys is exciting for me as well!
