I think mine was "sorry". I remember when I was 7-8 years old and we're learning the song "Head and shoulders, knees and toes". After a few years I realised that the name of shampoo (Head&Shoulders) isn't that hard as I thought.
I remember also this song with alphabet, but as I know in English-speaking countries they learn the same one.
Ohh! And I remember this joy when the English-teacher has said "Sit down" or "Stand up". I don't know why, but for 8 years old children it was HILARIOUS.
First German word? I've never liked that language, but it was, I guess, "Scheiße". I know, impressive. My German-teacher was always angry and has said something like "do you know that is almost a CURSE?!".
I know that Hungarion "yes" is "igen". My friend was crazy about Hungary, have no idea why.
I think my first couple of English words (with very curious ideas at how to pronounce them) came from the names and tagline descriptions of MOTU action figures, when I was six or seven. So, I'm probably one of few peeps who can rate stuff like "Lord of Destruction" among their first foreign words. *feels badass *
Funnily, when I first learned the word "human" that way, I thought it meant something like "boogeyman".
Well, I can't really remember my first English words, but I did learn a lot of my first English through games. Especially through Runescape ;P I do remember that I knew the English word 'jug' because of Runescape x')
Wow, this is an old thread.
I really don't remember what my first English word was. It might have been something from a cartoon show. Like Extreme Dinosaurs or something. The kind of stuff I grew up watching. There are plenty of English words in the titles. I grew up in the wake of Jurassic Park. It might have been "Jurassic", but it probably was something else, less special.
Don't ask me to remember that, lol, that was a looong time ago. I learned English, almost fluently, before we ever had it in school (which was, about, 3rd grade) because of all the television, movies and music I was around in English. Funny fact, though, most of my English teachers despised teaching me, because they were teaching British English and I was fluent in American English. Ha!
The only thing I can remember of 2nd grade is learning the word "bin" in English class. After that, I was really bad at English until my mother met an American with whom I lived for about 3 years who didn't speak French. At first I was so self-conscious about my English that I wouldn't talk to him at all. But then I got better (I started watching HIMYM in English with subtitles over and over) and I talked to him more and more to the point where I spoke better than my mom and everybody in my class
Now I LOVE learning new languages and practicing my English, especially on that site.
