I do believe so, as in my mind I find myself evaluating and tracking the 2, side by side conversations in Spanish.
As far as civility, it’s a prerequisite here and the very few here who repeatedly tried to push the limits were 86’d – I have little patience for trolls and/or adults who behave like they are still in junior high. It may limit our growth somewhat but as far as the forum here goes, I am much more interested in quality vs quantity and I do believe that you will find that here in the discussions.
About the quoted reply function, the people who built the base of this platform believed that providing the comment reply structure like on Facebook would make it clear who/what a member was responding to.
Having said that, there is a quote function available on the post menu bar that you can access by clicking on the quotes icon on the menu bar that starts with the Aa icon at the bottom left of the post box – you just have to manually type in the quote.
Anyway, interesting stuff! It would be fun to chat in person; I’ve spent a lot of thought and observation on my own and others’ language acquisition, and suspect that a lot of the instructors in formal language classes, really don’t understand the process very well. Talking with people like you who have reached a high level of proficiency in a second language (few Gringos do), always provides delightful surprises and insight.
This is how the quote function displays.
It would be fun to meet and talk face to face and I would look forward to that amigo, just give me a bit of advance notice if you ever have plans to be in the SQ area…
