    What is your first impression about forum?
  • RemaRema Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Lynne @Bubbly @Zom
    I don't know what is the right name for the notebook where we can write everything we want(with lot of different topics...)?
    For example, when I was in elementary school I had one notebook and in that notebook I had written math, poem, physic, chemistry, jokes...
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,007 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    We usually call it a 'diary' where one can write daily life activities including feelings and thoughts etc.

    We also use it a word 'planner' where one can write down daily work plans along with a time schedule.
  • RemaRema Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @bubble I've already heard for diary and planner but those words sound to me little formal.
    I try to find more informal(slang) word, in my language that word sound so informal...

  • RemaRema Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @LaszloMark Yes, I mean on you. I saw(you have two stars) that you have already deserved opportunity to send @Lynne private message and to join to some sessions to improve your speaking skills ;)

  • RemaRema Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @LaszloMark You're welcome :) For this session you need to have microphone, not webcam because that's not video-call(that's good because we don't need to take care about outfit :D ) ;)

    I'd say, a notebook! If you don't like notebook, maybe activity book?
  • RemaRema Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Thanks @Zom :)
    How do you call this notebook in France? If you can try to literally translate this word into English, that's can be solution.
    Maybe I'm so awful in giving those explanations?:(

    @NatashaT What's the name for notebook where we can write everything we want?
    Some kind of slang name for notebook :/
    Diary is so formal, this word is so informal(in my language).
  • RemaRema Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Lynne @NatashaT @Bubbly
    Maybe this can be great material for one of the sessions:

    In France we would use a binder with page dividers or a notebook. ("un classeur avec des intercalaires" or "un cahier").

    Something like this, www.allprosoftware.com/binderaccessorykit/6-ring-binder-open-w-tabs.jpg
  • RemaRema Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Zom
    Is binder with page synonym for loose-leaf notebook?
  • ZomZom Posts: 2,498 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @Rema - It looks like it to me. In a ring binder you add loose sheets of paper that you slide in the rings. Then if you want to create different sections, one for each activity, you add binder dividers. Binder dividers are special pages usually coloured to create the separation between sets of sheets of paper. Usually the dividers are a bit bigger and have an extension for you to write the name of the activity.
  • RemaRema Posts: 1,052 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Thanks @Zom for this great explanations :)
  • NatashaTNatashaT Posts: 667 mod
    @Rema I agree with @Zom :) A ring binder is the hard outside cover where you can keep loose sheets of paper. Sometimes the sheets are actually attached together in a book, but they have perforations so that you can tear them them.

    But we also use the word notebook or notepad generally to mean any kind of empty book you can write in, so I think for your purposes, notebook is a good word to use. :)

    @Rema Did you mean this forum. I love it! I only just joined it a couple days ago, and I am already hooked. May I know how long did it take for you to get two stars? I really want to join the skype session.
