I'm new here, and so I thought it would be appropriate to introduce myself :)

The name's Ellen, and I'm a 19 year-old gal from Sweden. Since English isn't my main language, I'm afraid my mastering of it is a bit limited, so please don't hate me for the errors I am sure to make. As an aspiring linguist, I know how disturbing linguistic errors may be, but I can assure you that I'm doing the best I can. Do however feel free to correct me if you so wish - I'm always happy to learn! :)

Lots of love

Welcome, and don't worry, your English seems perfect to me, and most English people (well, English men) love a girl with a Swedish accent ;p

Hi alvhalla.
Do not worry, your English is a LOT better than my Swedish. Do not let CB's xenophobia get to you, most BRITISH men (not just the English ones) love a girl with a Swedish accent.

Welcome alvhalla.

This is a wide and varied community, and I am sure you will fit in well. Not everyone agress with everyone all the time.
Do you get to see QI in Sweden, or do you watch it on the Interwebz?

Yes, so I have been told ;)

I have to use the webz I'm afraid. We don't get all that much British comedy in Sweden unfortunately.

Ah, yes, I was afraid someone might pick up on that ;) It's just a word play on my last name.

welcome! don't worry about your English.
they pick up on silly mistakes quite rapidly, around here, but it's all very good-natured (it's a very small minority that will use "you can't spell and your grammar sucks!!" as a valid argument in a discussion around here; especially since about 20 other discussion-vultures would jump on it and tear it apart bit by bit, explaining in a number of posts why that particular argument is invalid, incorrect, or just simply daft). and you're far from the only non-native English-speaker around here.

and, if i have to be honest, your English is quite impressive.

You could at least have used the wrong 'your'.

;)
