Hi,

Thanks in advance.

In Italy, for people of a certain age... it could also mean this:

RE: OP
For ESL speakers:
Those tricky acronyms can usually be easily looked up online on the Urban Dictionary.
Example: if you Google "pda urban", the link to the meaning is on top of the stack.

There's also a lot of phrases of the interesting type that people usually like to learn first, in any second language.

And I thought PDA had something to do with calculators, but maybe that was only in the 90's. Too many TLA's...

Too many indeed, considering lots of them, like OP and BG 4I, are TLA too. BTW, AWGTHTGTTA is also a TLA, isn't it? :-)

Ah, mais oui, Gérard, Italy is a fantastic country and culture, and they gave us Portuguese many of our current attributes like the language.

Merci pour remember here our greatest Fado singer, Amália Rodrigues!

I see you are a bon vivant and that you had the opportunity to visit our little country in the good old times of our last Empire. Smile

Back then, we use to say that the Portuguese loved the FFF.

OK, I will translate it: Fátima (religion), Futebol (fun time), and Fado (sadness). Smile

RE: OP
Hi,
Yes I am a good alive (un bon vivant).
Now I think it is better is a good alive then a bad dead !
Because I laked the help of mathematics, i am inscribe at mathematic course
at University of Nice. I think it is a mistake beacause I understand nothing of nothing in amphitheater, and I am surely the more aged into the students !

Even the professor ask me what am-I do here. I simply reply : for learn mathematics, but I think never return there because I seem ridiculus whit them.

But never have arms down (ne jamais baisser les bras !), I will learn on internet.

I think they do this about me, it is not charitable (see attachement).

Pas du tout, Gérard.

I understand what you say. I'm getting old (58 years old now) as well - but everybody will get old one day if they don't die first.

Sometimes the young generations can be cruel with the older (wiser) people.

This is typical: young people thinks they know everything!
Then, as we get older, we start to have doubts...
The yesterday trues are not so clear anymore.

But we keep learning everyday of our lives.
I learn a lot from the other people posts here, specially om mathematics.
This MoHPC is really a good place to be.

Gérard, don't listen to them.

I'm 51 and back to college again, now for Maths, that I like very much, like you!

There's no age for studying, and it's good to exercise our brain!

Good luck!

GO IN SPITE OF WHAT THEY THINK!

Before starting University, it was a requirement that everyone saw a counselor prior to the first quarter. At the appointed time I sit down across the desk from my assigned counselor. He looks at me, then looks at my transcript (grades from school and college entry tests), he looks at me again and then at the transcript. Then he looks at me again and asks, "What are you doing here?" (not in a nice way).

At that point I was done with counselors. I can honestly say I never got any good advice from a professional school counselor. I did better asking fellow students what was up (and occasionally teachers too).

And I love math, but am really bad at it. I'm still trying to learn.

I bet you will find some students and teachers that are supportive with more time.

Learning maths is a slow and boring process. This doesn't mean that maths are boring.
